DEVOS TREE CARE REVIEWS

Take a look for yourself at the impressions left by our certified arborists whose craft and hard work served past clients.
“I would recommend DeVos Tree Care to anyone wanting to have work done on their trees. I had the pleasure of working with Aaron for some work I needed done on a 50+ year old Silver Maple in my back yard. I was contacted promptly to discuss my needs and he met with me personally to make sure that what he was going to do would match the end result I was looking for. The price was reasonable and he went above and beyond to make sure that I was satisfied with the work when it was complete. A great job from start to finish!”
Rebecca Hardwick (Hamilton)

“I invited DeVos Tree Care along with 3 other very popular, “big” tree service companies to quote on the removal of a very old and very large Manitoba Maple that was suffering from disease and posing a hazard of dangerously coming down on its own. The tree sat on the crest of a 6? berm without access by boom and the nearest street access being 160? away from the tree, a hand bombing nightmare. One of the “bigs” wouldn’t even quote, citing it was too difficult for them. The others priced the work so high it was obvious they didn’t want to do it either. Aaron quickly responded to my invitation by arriving to view the work and provided a very reasonable price. After providing me proof of insurance including workman?s comp certificates, we scheduled the work to be done. Aaron and his crew were unbelievable! They worked strategically, hanging and swinging from ropes with precision and care, always mindful of the danger and employing safe practices. That tree was down in no time, every piece of it removed from the property and the stump ground to a pulp. We were so impressed that we asked Aaron if he was able to trim our beautiful 75? long x 12? x 5? deep property line cedar hedge. This puppy has been a real treat for my neighbour and I to trim annually!! He and his assistant banged that off as well leaving behind a great looking and healthy hedge and little sign they were there. All that was 3 years ago. Aaron now comes back each fall to trim that darn hedge. I have and would recommend Aaron to anyone in need of his services and expertise.”

“Aaron made quick and efficient work of the dead Ash tree on our city lot. He was able to remove limbs and rope them away from our garage with ease. He left a clean work site and arranged for someone to pick up the firewood within a couple of days of the tree coming down. We will certainly be seeking his advice and service when we choose a new tree to shade our yard.”
Andrew Hibma (Hamilton)
“Your professionalism and skill was greatly appreciated. Our locust tree looks great. Thank you!”

Nelly Sinclair (Hamilton)
“Showed up on time and got right to work. Finished the job quickly. Offered his educated opinion on what to do and made us happy. Very friendly with the neighbours as well. Very reasonably priced for a job my husband and I could not have possibly done on our own. Will use and recommend to friends in the future.”

DEVOS TREE CARE FAQ

Why should I call a certified arborist tree removal?
There are a few credentialing agencies but the most widely accepted is the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). To verify if an arborist is certified with the ISA, check out their website and search for the name/company that you are interested in contacting.

In addition, tree work is a very risky profession it is highly recommended that you contact a company with at least two million dollars in liability insurance as well as WSIB coverage. When having your tree looked at, you should ask for proof of insurance. Keep in mind that the tree removal cost includes all these benefits.

How do I identify a tree on my property?
You could always call up a Certified Arborist to help you figure this out or else you could use an online identification guide. These aren’t always accurate but it is a step in the right direction. Arborday Foundation has the best online guide.

There is also an app called Leafsnap. It uses visual recognition software to help identify your tree.

Does the tree on our yard belong to us or the city?
This varies by municipality in accordance with street tree by-laws. You should consult your municipal urban forester if you are unsure or else the fines for pruning or removing the tree in question can be quite costly.
You will also want to consider reading why your neighbours tree can become a liability if you are unsure of how responsibilities are played out.
What tree should I plant?
That is a great question. In order to answer it you need to know what your planting location will allow for in terms of light, width, height (ie. is it below hydro lines?), and have a little bit of a running understanding of your soil’s composition.

With that little bit of information you can now run wild with the dozens upon dozens of options available to you. To play and explore some of these options have a view through Connon Nurseries extensive catalogue filled with pictures and information on hundreds of trees.

If you are still looking for help, give us a call.

Remember the phrase: “Right tree, right place, for the right reasons”

When can my tree be pruned?
It is generally encouraged to have pruning done in winter or early spring. In general, avoid pruning between the middle of spring through early fall.

On the other hand, if the limbs in question are posing an imminent risk then this should be taken care of as soon as possible.

You can also read why prune a tree and get educated about the price for tree pruning.

How can I best take care of my tree?

There are lots of things you could do but let’s start with 5 suggestions.

  1. Ensure your tree gets rain every few days during the event of a drought.
  2. Avoid driving/parking on the soil beneath the trees canopy.
  3. Apply 2-3 inches of mulch around your tree, there is a right way and wrong way to do this. See this video
  4. Have your tree pruned earlier in its life rather than later. Trees are a little bit like people; train them early in life and they are less likely to depart from this as they grow old.
  5. Know your tree. Regularly pay attention to changes that your tree undergoes so that you can catch hazards and disease before they become larger issues.

What is the best way to remove a tree stump?
Any stumps around 5 inches or bigger should be stump ground.

Stump grinding won’t remove all the roots but it can at least open up other opportunities for landscaping or gardening. The alternative is to wait a number of years for the stump to decompose.

Consider the price for stump grinding as well.

How much does it cost to cut down a tree?
