24/7 Emergency tree care

The colder months are full of winter activities from ice skating and tobogganing to sipping hot chocolate in front of fire. But the one winter activity you might not have thought of before is tree care. Winter is the perfect season for tree care because trees are in dormancy. What does this mean? Basically, a dormant tree is a resting tree. Because there are less sun-filled hours each day and fewer resources, trees enter this state of conservation to survive the colder months. With proper winter care, your trees will be healthier and more vibrant come spring.

Benefits of Tree Care in Winter

The Electric Chain Saw Is On The Stump Of A

Tree Removal

Winter tree removal prevents damage and injury to you and your property because of compromised trees breaking or falling over in winter storms.

Winter Tree Trimming

Tree Trimming/Pruning

For many varieties of trees, winter is the ideal time for trimming and pruning. Remove damaged, diseased, or dead branches to promote new healthy growth.

Winter Tree Wrapping

Tree Wrapping

Protect trees from harsh exposure to sun, wind, and even salt with tree wrapping.

Winter Tree Mulching

Tree Mulching

If tree mulching is completed before the ground is fully frozen, mulch can be added to flower beds and around the base of trees (especially newly planted ones) to insulate roots and add some nutrients to the soil.

Why are the conifer trees on the street edge of my property only starting to have brown needles?

In urban areas salt is regularly used to maintain streets throughout winter. While it is beneficial in eating away ice and snow, it can be particularly damaging to trees. As vehicles drive by, salty slush and water is often sprayed onto trees the line the streets. The browning needles are a possible indication of salt damage. It is best to contact a certified arborist, such as Local Arborist, to properly diagnose your tree and implement a plan for prevention and restoration.

When should I stop fertilizing my trees?

It is recommended to stop fertilizing trees at least 6 weeks before the first forecasted frost. Fertilizer serves to promote rapid, lush growth in plants. If that new growth does not have enough time to harden off before the cold temperatures hit, it will likely suffer severe damage.

Should I water my trees in winter?

Trees should be watered regularly all the way through fall up until the ground begins to freeze. You can continue to water your trees so long as there is no snow on the ground around your trees and the temperatures remain above 4˚C.

Thank you Marion, your team did a great job at my residence. I would highly recommend your services to anyone.
David Spagnolo
We had an amazing experience with the Local Arborist. We came to them after another company bowed out at the last moment, after the service had already been scheduled, explaining that our case was too difficult for them to take on. The Local Arborist saved us! They were prompt and communicative, and very transparent about pricing and potential obstacles. In the end, they were able to remove the tree earlier than the previous company would have done it.Marian kept in touch with me throughout the process on the day of the removal, and advised on the future replanting process. They even trimmed an adjacent tree for us while performing the removal. It was an extremely positive experience, and we look forward to working with the Local Arborist again in the future.

A great company to call! I initially spoke with Mariann to book an appt for a tree that needed careful pruning. He called promptly and passed by to view and give me a quote. A very pleasant & professional guy. 3 guys, Joel, Sasha & Eddiie came to my home, they were absolutely great! Very nice, pleasant and took care of what was needed. I would defenitely call them back should I need this service again. We'll done gentleman, and thank u again.

These guys were excellent. They were prompt, well coordinated and very professional. Great teamwork. The job went very smoothly. They finished on time, took away all of the debris and logs (it was a huge tree removed from the backyard, and huge stem cut from a tree in the front). They were even careful not to drop logs from too high to avoid getting holes and dings in our lawn. They completely cleaned up our yard and both of my neighbour’s’ yards. My neighbours were very pleased. They even blew off the decks and driveways. Very impressive, and the price was very reasonable. Marian even followed up with a phone call afterwards (and before the team left) to make sure that I was satisfied with the job. I would strongly recommend Marian and his team to anyone.
