Keys to Proper Tree Removal in Toronto


Tree removal requires careful planning, a high level of skill and proper equipment to get it done effectively. In fact, this is one of those jobs that are potentially dangerous and shouldn’t be left to just anyone. Many factors can push you to remove a tree from your compound. Perhaps the tree is obstructing a beautiful sight in your landscape. You could want it gone because it’s sick, dehydrated or diseased and risks the surrounding plants. Trees that don’t grow well may also need to be removed or become a serious safety hazard in your compound. Whatever your reasons for tree removal Toronto, understand that this is a serious process that needs to be approached with caution.

    Always consider the location of the tree

    When removing a tree, one of the most important things to consider is its location. If the tree is away from houses and other obstacles, it will require less effort to remove. However, if the tree is crossing power lines or is very close to your house, there are many risks for damage to occur. In a windy weather trees can down electrical wires which will cause safety hazard and would have to be fixed by licensed electrician (if on private property) or Hydro One. Therefore, an experienced arborist will ensure that all the safety measures are taken for the removal to be done without causing property damage. In fact, trees that are close to obstacles require more complicated techniques and advanced equipment during removal.

    Is your tree damaged?

    After a major storm or high winds, you may notice some damage on your tree. Tree removal needs to be done cautiously in order to prevent additional damage. Remember that damaged trees are riskier to remove because the workers are more likely to be injured. It’s always worthwhile to have the tree safely removed by an expert. You can avoid serious injuries and a host of other problems.

    What affects the cost of tree removal in Toronto?

    The state of the tree will certainly determine the preventative measures that need to be taken during removal. How much you pay for tree removal will depend on many things such as the size, condition, diameter or location of the tree. The longer the tree, the more complicated and risky it is to remove it. A tree that is healthy and strong also requires more effort to remove than a dead, dying or rotting tree. Another important factor that will determine how much you pay for the tree to be removed is its diameter. A thick tree trunk would be harder to remove than a long, slimmer tree.

    Additional services after tree removal in Toronto

    After the tree is removed, you may require additional services such as stump removal, limb chipping, log splitting and hauling away the tree limbs. Make sure you factor this into the total cost of the tree removal service. Sometimes getting rid of a tree is the only way to reduce the potential risks involved when it’s left in your compound. Don’t be quick to handle tree removal on your own. There are so many risks involved and it’s always best to let the pros handle it for you.

Tree & Shrub Pruning

A tree may seem invincible and capable of surviving under any circumstances. However, it is important to note that, just like any other living organisms, trees need assistance to thrive effectively. The main ways you can boost the health of your trees and shrubs are through pruning and fertilizing. Pruning is essential in helping trees and shrubs thrive outside their natural growing environment in the wild. Pruning enables you to maintain the aesthetics of your trees and makes trees to develop a durable structure.

Through pruning, you can effectively get rid of diseased or sickly plant parts. It helps prevent the disease from spreading to the entire tree. You will also be able to control harmful insects by pruning your trees; the insects will not have hiding places. You should note that improper pruning might cause severe damage and even contribute to the death of your tree. Therefore, you should only have a professional prune your trees and shrubs. With our experienced pruning experts at Al Miley & Associates, nothing can go wrong.

Storm Damage Restoration

How you respond after a storm makes the difference between giving your trees a chance of survival or losing your valued trees. After a storm, you may notice that large tree branches and limbs are hanging and broken. It is advisable to contact storm damage restoration experts like Al Miley & Associates to help you restore the trees. We have all the necessary tools and expertise, and we will know the right course of action to take. We will remove the remains of smaller broken limbs to minimize the risk of decay spreading to the main trunk.

To help improve the aesthetics of the tree and to eliminate places where insects can hide, we will repair the torn tree bark. In parts where the back is torn away, we will use the right equipment to smooth the ragged edges of the wound. The tree's appearance may not be perfect at first. However, we will avoid over-pruning because, with time, the branches will grow to restore the beauty of the tree. You do not have to give up on your trees after storm damage; we can help restore their glamour.

Vertical Mulching

Your trees could greatly benefit from vertical mulching services from Al Miley & Associates. Vertical mulching is a popular procedure that entails drilling tiny holes in the soil beneath the canopy of a tree. We ensure the small holes extend all the way to the tree protection zone or drip line. We then fill the holes with the right mixtures of mulch, including leaves, wood chips, and pine straw, among others. We may also include other materials like pea gravel, sand, or compost.

What are the main benefits of vertical mulching? This procedure helps to increase the oxygen levels in the soil by improving aeration. Vertical mulching also helps to reduce soil compaction and allows tree roots to spread freely. The procedure will help to inoculate the root zone of stressed shrubs or trees. Your trees will also thrive better because the procedure helps to fertilize the soil and add essential nutrients. Sub-soil water will penetrate better, reducing the chances of excessive watering, which may be harmful to your trees.

Why is an arborist report essential? The report will offer insight into the condition and the health of your trees. It will also outline the root cause of problems like diseases and recommend actions you can take to alleviate the problems. The report also offers insight into the trees you can take down without inflicting undue loss to the community. Before you take down trees, most city authorities require you to have an arborist report. Contact us today to meet with one of our experienced arborists.

Tree Cabling & Bracing

If you notice that some of your trees have become weak and unstable, it may be time to consider tree cabling and bracing. Typically, trees may become unstable due to uneven damage and growth, making the trees unable to support their own weight. Unstable trees may pose a risk of property damage and personal injuries due to falling trees. At Al Miley & Associates, we do not restrict cabling and bracing to the big trees only. We also consider the smaller trees because cabling and bracing help to enhance proper growth and stability.

Proper cabling and bracing will help to promote the long-term health of your trees. In any commercial and residential property, trees are an important asset, and enhancing their longevity will help them serve you for a long time. You will enjoy the shade and the cool breeze from the trees for longer. You will not have to incur frequent tree removal and tree replacement costs. You can focus that money on other areas of your property maintenance.

Lot Clearing

Al Miley & Associates provides lot-clearing services to enhance the safety and accessibility of your landscape. Lot clearing entails clearing trees and shrubs. Other than enhancing safety, lot clearing may also help make way for new lawn expansion, renovations, and constructions. The key benefit of lot clearing is improving the aesthetics of your landscape and creating more space. If trees and shrubs are growing in the wrong areas and if they are too close together, they may detract the value of your property. By clearing the overgrown areas, you can add other amenities like outdoor living spaces.

Lot clearing helps to improve the safety and the health of your property. If you leave unattended weedy and brushy areas, they may act as thriving places for rodents, snakes, or even bigger animals. These animals may bring unwanted diseases or insects. The animals may also pose a hazard, especially when you are driving. Our lot clearing services will help offer you a safer environment.

Stump Removal & Grinding

Once you successfully remove a tree, what will remain is a tree stump. You may wonder what to do with the tree stump. For instance, should you just leave the stump lying on the yard or grind it?

With tree removal and grinding services from Al Miley & Associates, tree stumps do not have to be a nuisance.

Our tree removal and grinding services will offer you a wide range of benefits, including enhancing the aesthetics of your yard. Our services will also help improve the convenience and safety of your yard. You will be able to avoid unwanted growth and pests.
