The primary objective of tree pruning is to maintain the health and vitality of trees. More specifically, the objective is to structure and orient the growth of young trees, reestablish the natural form, clear branches from buildings and construction sites, and eliminate potential hazards. Pruning consists of removing dead, sick, weak, broken or interfering branches, and branches that pose a potential risk to the public. Nevertheless, we do not recommend over-pruning or tree topping, and our team of experts is prepared to advise you on the best course of action for tree health and maintenance.

This service aims to establish a solid form and structure in young trees. It is important to guide, maintain and orient their growth within the early years of plantation. A tree that benefits from this type of pruning at a young age will encounter less structural weaknesses and deficiencies once they reach maturity. In addition, it is necessary to orient and shape the crown of a tree while taking into consideration the constraints of the site, any potential interferences to its growth, and its natural form.
For stump and root removal, we have two stump grinders that reach 12 to 25 inches below the ground. Our smallest stump grinder measures 36 inches wide, made to fit in most backyards. Our larger stump grinder is more suitable for front lawns and very large stumps. Both stump grinders are built to prevent any damage to the lawn or other areas of the property.
