Emergencies happen and we’re here to help.
Ideally, regular maintenance and pruning by a qualified arborist is already part of your schedule to protect against preventable fallen trees that can damage property or cause injuries. But not everything can be prevented. Wind and snow storms cause many fallen trees throughout the Lower Mainland every fall and winter.
Our 24 hour, 7 day a week emergency tree service is here for you anytime you need us.
Our experienced team includes ISA Certified Arborists, Certified Utility Arborists (CUA), and
Tree Risk Assessment Certified (TRAC) personnel.

Signs a Tree is At Risk of Falling
Once a tree has fallen, especially onto a building or car, or in a public area, it becomes an
imminent safety risk and must be urgently removed.
However, sometimes it is possible to identify dangerous trees — those at high risk of falling
during a storm or other impact — and remove them before it falls.
Before storm season, it’s a good idea to have a certified arborist inspect your property’s trees to note which trees, if any, may be at risk of falling during a storm.
A few things our team looks out for include thorough examinations of the crown for rotted wood or dead leaves, and especially if any roots are exposed. This can indicate the tree is unstable and therefore, in danger of falling during a windstorm.
Dangerous Tree Removal Service
Our ISA certified arborists can identify those trees on your property and ensure action is taken urgently, 24/7, even if the tree hasn’t fallen yet.
This can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage costs, as well as the potential to
save human lives.
Complete Tree Removal
We can remove all types of trees in emergency situations or during regular maintenance.
Trees may need to be removed for many reasons, including:
● Improper pruning in the past
● Disease, rot or damage
● Proximity to power lines or buildings
● Structural issues including root issues or decay
● Roots becoming too close to buildings or underground utilities
● Dropping needles, leaves or other items onto property or roadways, endangering
● In the way of planned construction or would be damaged by the construction process
We take great care to exhaust other options before removing a tree and all our assessments
come complete with guidance on the best course of action for your tree and how to adhere to your municipality’s laws.
Removing a tree can be dangerous. Our expert team can work in any situation, including small spaces, high-traffic areas and extremely large trees that require heavy equipment to remove and clear. Our capabilities ensure a safe tree removal from start to finish.

In addition to emergency responses, we can assist with non-urgent storm cleanup after all
dangerous situations have been resolved by our expert team.
Our fleet of trucks, lifts and chippers can handle any size cleanup project day or night.
We provide complete end-to-end emergency service, from first call to picking up the last fallen branch.
