Tree of the Week – Norway Maple (Acer platanoides)

Some of you may be wondering, of all great trees in the Greater Hamilton area, why start a series with the Norway maple? As its name suggests, it is not native to Canada. It does not live too long. It doesn't grow to great heights. Between its dense canopy of leaves...

Video Assessment

This may be right for you if one or more of the following apply:

Time is of the essence.
Scale of the project is small to medium.
If you're trying to gauge the price of the project.
There's something going on with your tree but aren't sure if you should be concerned about it.

Onsite Assessment

This may be right for you if one or more of the following apply:

High level of intricacy and complexity
Multiple stakeholders (i.e. neighbours, tenant, landlord, property manager).
You want that extra level of personal care (we enjoy it too😉)
