Toronto tree pruning costs are variable, but it often depends on the efficiency of the arborist. Tree pruning takes expert knowledge on which branches are most detrimental, and making a cut that can optimize health is beyond the wisdom of those without an arborist’s background. As a part of comprehensive plant health care, pruning can cost a few hundred dollars, to $800 per property. Trust in The Real Tree Masters, and prioritize your trees’ health. While you have an arborist onsite, it could be the perfect opportunity to get stump removal done at the same time, so your greenspace will be ready to go for the season.
Similar to how a trimming job on most trees goes, you’d remove deadwood first, with branches that are clearly rotting away. Next, you’d want to target branches that are growing horizontally, but it requires a bit of expertise to judge which angles are worse off for the tree than others and why. Other limbs might be crossing over and leaning on them or otherwise growing in an entangled manner—which can also stifle the tree’s health. We also look for branches that might break under their own weight when deciding on what to trim. In the same way, you need an eye for what kind of branch growth is unhealthy.
An arborist, or at least a certified arborist, is a person who can assess the health of a tree and handle work that will contribute to its wellbeing. An arborist can provide bankable opinions on a tree’s overall health, threats to its health, threats to persons or property and even other plants and trees. Then the arborist can conduct trimming, fertilization, aeration, grinding, cutting, or any practical solutions needed. A tree trimmer doesn’t have quite the same background, and they tend to stick to trimming rather than weighing in with reporting.
We use forestry climbing gear, provided it’s safe and the tree can support the weight of the person climbing without breaking. Otherwise, we have forestry bucket trucks that can raise an arborist in the bucket up safely on the boom.
With the right care, over a hundred years, depending on the species.
