ABOUT US

TREE CARE PROFESSIONALS

Arboreal was established in 2001 to offer the Blue Mountains/Southern Georgian Bay region with an arboriculture firm to provide tree care of the highest standard.
Certified arborists on staff ensure that the prescribed action for trees in our care is carried out to the highest level, while maintaining a professional membership with ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) ensures we keep abreast of the latest techniques and research in our field.
Our equipment compliments our professional team by being up to date and meeting or exceeding the standards set for our industry. From large items such as using modern well maintained engines in our equipment to ensure efficiency and environmental responsibility, to important smaller details such as our use of biodegradable bar oil for our chainsaws so that no petroleum products are left at your site.

Our methodology is based in responsibility, respect and accountability towards the living organisms on which we practice our craft and to the clients who have chosen to use our services.

You get tragedy where the tree, instead of bending , breaks.
Ludwig Wittgenstein

From report writing for construction projects and tree appraisals, to preservation solutions we look forward to presenting you with the pertinent information regarding your site.

When trees are stressed in their environment it is essential to perform the correct analysis prior to prescribing a treatment, hence we provide soil, foliar, and structural analysis to gain a complete understanding of the trees condition and needs.

In circumstances where soil nutrient values are imbalanced and can be corrected with aid of a fertilization program, we propose a tailored and individually prescribed nutrient application. Our recommendations are focused on treatments which will enable the tree to gain its balance within its root zone while the diminution based program allows the target plant to be taken off the program within an average of three growing seasons.

Formative – to train a young tree through pruning, this practice is to encourage its species potential form and structure and is tailored directly to the species of tree being cared for as every species has an ideal habit.
Corrective – to perform reduction pruning within the canopy to improve the trees branch structure and correct poor crown development
Form – to prune the tree for aesthetics, usually pertaining to the canopies outline (be it regular or undulating) according to species and the physical limitations of the tree.
Structure - removing or reducing limbs which are adversely affecting the stability of the tree or the limb itself, the result being a tree with less distal weight acting on limb/stem unions reducing failure potential.
Retrenchment – to perform an overall canopy reduction to encourage proximal (nearer the centre of the tree) growth – used to re-invigorate and help to stabilize older trees in decline.
Form and structure - to prune the tree for aesthetics, usually pertaining to the canopies outline (be it regular or undulating) and removing or reducing limbs adversely affecting the stability of the tree or the limb itself. Thus training the tree to attain its species potential.
Clearance – to reduce either individual limbs/branches or the entire canopy due to space limitations as dictated by either physical structures or other plants.

When trees which have not been maintained develop poor structure, and pruning alone cannot mitigate the potential failure of stems or limbs we offer aids to structure such as dynamic cables and static braces. These are individualized according to the trees needs and require follow up inspections and care as the tree continues to develop.

Every living organism must pass; when trees die and removal is required Arboreal offers its professional team to perform the task. Using advanced rigging techniques and modern equipment we ensure that the trees surroundings are left undisturbed and safe. Whether the tree must be completely removed or a portion can remain for wildlife habitat, is site specific and is one of the options offered. Complete clean up to ensure there is no debris left behind is to be expected at every site where an Arboreal project has been completed.

If the stump is to be removed it can be ground to desired depths according to the planned use of the area going forward. Stump grinding chips can then either be removed from site or be left upon request for use as natural mulch if the tree was not diseased.

Please convey to him our gratitude.

Thank you for the level of professionalism and attention to detail. It’s very clear that you all love what you do, and you’re amazing at it. We felt great knowing the tree was in your competent hands.
