Providing Commercial & Residential Tree Services with Integrity Since 1979
Though Edmonton doesn’t have an official tree, the city is home to many beautiful native tree species, including the jack pine, balsam poplar, mount royal plum, and white birch trees. All trees found throughout the city offer plenty of benefits like shade and clean air, but if you have any on your property, they can be challenging to maintain.
Maintaining your trees’ health and attractiveness is time-consuming, and purchasing tools to provide your own tree care will quickly add up. Some procedures are also too dangerous to handle without adequate experience. You can keep your property looking its best with the help of Edmonton arborists.
Tree Trimming and Pruning Services
Trees engage in “self-pruning,” by which the plant stops providing nutrients to damaged, diseased, or under-productive branches. With a lack of nutrients, the limbs will eventually die, but this process can take years. Until the branch falls, it will remain an eyesore that could drop at any time, making it a potential hazard.
Tree pruning and trimming services eliminate unhealthy branches, restoring the tree’s beauty. By removing the problematic limbs, the healthier branches will have more space to spread out and allow more sunlight to shine through the canopy. Pruning also facilitates airflow, which reduces the chances of fallen branches during a storm.
Edmonton Arborists Inc. offers exceptional trimming and pruning services. Our skilled Edmonton arborists know what it takes to keep a tree healthy and attractive. Besides strict training for all team members about proper tree maintenance, our experts also use specialized tools and equipment to produce quality results.
Tree Cabling and Bracing
Sometimes trees grow in such a way that they cannot bear their weight, making them unsafe. Edmonton arborists use cabling and bracing to give the tree additional support to prevent it from breaking apart and causing significant property damage or personal injuries. This process works for trees with weak limbs, poor branching habits, and inadequate root systems.
Cabling and bracing can either completely restrict the tree’s movement or allow for moderate activity so that the plant can naturally correct its improper growth pattern. While such techniques are not foolproof, they will significantly reduce the risk of a falling tree.
Our Edmonton arborists examine improperly growing trees and will expertly install hardware to give them the support they need to thrive. Our top-quality cables can redistribute load weight, and threaded rods can effectively pin slitting branches together.
Safe Tree Removal
Because trees are living, they are vulnerable to illness and death. Dying trees can potentially fall over or drop branches and could hit a proximate building or passerby. They are also eyesores that negatively affect the landscape and decrease property values. Removing infected, dying, or dead trees will keep your property safe and preserve its visual appeal. If the tree is severely ill with an infectious parasite or fungus, removing the tree will also spare healthier trees nearby from getting sick with the same illness.
Trees do not have to be ill or dead to require removal. Removal service can improve the overall landscape or make room for construction.
Edmonton Arborists Inc. offers efficient tree removal for residents throughout Edmonton. Our professional arborists understand the dangers of tree removal and take all precautions necessary to remove the tree while safeguarding nearby structures.
Stump Grinding Services
When the time comes to cut down a tree, unattractive stumps are sometimes left behind. They take up valuable space—especially in small land areas—and make the yard look unkempt.
When mowing the lawn, it might be challenging to maneuver the mower around a stump. It is also a tripping hazard, especially if children or seniors frequent the property. Removing the stump will improve the landscape and increase property value.
At Edmonton Arborists Inc., we don’t leave behind inconvenient stumps after removing trees, and we can also take care of old stumps left on your property from the previous owner.
We use a powerful stump grinder with rotating discs to chip away at the leftover wood. The machine completely removes all traces of the stump, leaving behind mulch that you can add to a flowerbed or around the base of a surviving tree to enhance its attractiveness and provide additional nutrients to the soil.

Frequently Asked Tree Questions
Arborists are trained professionals who specialize in improving and maintaining the health of trees and shrubs. Competent arborists receive certification from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), a world-renowned organization that promotes professional arboriculture through education, research, and technology.
Arborists have an intricate understanding of various plant problems and can identify them on different species. They may also have experience treating and preventing tree damage, planting seedlings, and operating trade-specific machinery and tools.
Landscaping services often include hardscape installation, mulching, lawn care, lawn irrigation services, and gardening. Some landscapers offer tree and shrub pruning, but they are not tree specialists. Landscapers may also lack sufficient training and tools to carry out quality tree removal, stump grinding, and cabling services.
Arborists have a better grasp of young and mature trees’ needs and the best practices for sustaining their health. Their tree services extend beyond trimming and pruning solely to make a tree look its best. Also, landscapers typically don’t have enough knowledge to diagnose and treat tree ailments.
For tree-related services, residents should work with experienced Edmonton arborists, such as our team at Edmonton Arborists Inc.
Your tree pruning frequency depends on the type of tree growing on your property. The general rule is once every three to five years, but it could be less if you believe a recent storm has damaged the plant. The best way to know if it is time to prune your trees is to schedule annual tree inspections with one of our Edmonton arborists.
We will closely examine the tree and let you know if pruning is needed. When the time comes, we have the necessary equipment to complete the job quickly.
The winter season is the best time to prune trees. Cutting off unhealthy or unnecessary limbs while the plant is dormant promotes healthy growth in the spring. A common misconception is that fall is the perfect season for pruning, but if leaves are still falling from the tree, the procedure can do more harm than good.
The exception to this rule is when the tree needs pruning to facilitate healthy flower and fruit production. Our arborists can assess the tree on your property to determine an appropriate maintenance schedule.
