Removal of branches and cleanup

Craig and his team were outstanding from start to finish. He provided an honest assessment of the work involved and his price was very reasonable. He cut down and removed broken branches from our 2 pine trees that had been damaged during a wind/snow storm and actually went above and beyond the scope of the work by cleaning up all of the debris that had fallen from the trees over the winter. He is very professional and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend Craig for any tree services and will definitely call on him again if we need more work on our trees. Thank you Craig, all the best!

Thank you very much for the work and the kind review Dr. Williams. The vicious winds from the week before damaged many trees in our area. Luckily, only a few branches from your Pine tree were damaged.
Your next door neighbour had us clean up a few broken branches also. I'm glad we could help.
I'll look forward to returning when the need arises.
Until then, all the best, Craig.

Thank you for the kind review Jay. You were wise to have the work completed before the leaves came out and made the job more difficult than it is now. The yard looks much bigger now as a result of the trimming Please know that anyone you send our way will be treated well also. All the best to you, Craig.

Tree trimming

Craig and his team came to trim several trees and bushes on our property. The work done and the cleanup was very professional and within budget. Very reasonable price. Craig even fashioned a metal collar for our tree to help prevent raccoons from climbing up. Very satisfied with his work.

Thank you Elizabeth.
The Mulberry tree fruit will be enjoyed by the birds only now. The collar should keep the raccoons away so they won't be pooping mulberries all over your back yard any longer. The Spruce tree at the rear of the house is well protected from the wind for now.
Thank you for the review.
All the best, Craig.

Tree Removal

Craig and his team removed a large fallen branch and tree from a risky location near my garage.The job was completed on time and budget in less than desirable winter conditions. I was very impressed with their focus on human safety and potential damage to my home during the tree removal. Craig's long experience in tree removal proved beneficial to a successful outcome.Would highly recommend
Thanks Craig and Team

Thank you Brian,
The removal was necessary as half of the tree had crashed into your back yard. The job went very well even while standing on the icy roof at times. Your neighbor watched the operation and has since hired us to prune his massive Oak tree. I'd like to thank you for the work and for putting your confidence in us.
We're at the other end if the phone if you need us again. Please know that anyone you send our way will be treated well.
All the best,
Craig

Thank You Craig

We lost a juniper in last weeks 30CM snow dump and it was partially uprooted and blocking in part our neighbours drive. Craig and crew at CB Trees just solved our problem. Such good service and clean up too. They will be back in the spring to get roots out and plant a replacement. 100% recommendation.

Thank you for the kind words. Your Juniper tree was one of many evergreen trees that could not support the weight of the snow during the recent storm and toppled. I'm glad we were able to help and we look forward to returning in the to help you with the replacement shrub. Until then, all the best, Craig.

Removed Branches from Storm Damaged Tree

Craig came by really quickly after the heavy/wet snowfall. He removed the hanging branches and made it safe then came back and removed branched that could cause a problem in the future, removed all the branches from the ground and left my driveway neat and tidy. Great guy, very friendly and explained what he was doing so I would understand. Would hire him again. It was a smaller job considering the number of trees damaged by the storm but he treated this job as important as the bigger ones. Really appreciated that.

Thank you Michele, the job went very well and we were glad to help. I'm glad we cleared the service lines to the house as well.
We appreciated the coffee, very nice of you. Going forward, the tree should be much easier to manage, while still providing shade. Thank you for the review. Take care, all the best, Craig.

Cat rescue

I found my young cat Vinny up on a tree, after looking for hours. He was up about 30 to 40 feet, begging for help. I called animal control, and they recommended CB tree service.
Craig came right away.
I found Craig to be very polite and caring. It was a very difficult job climbing up that tree, but he took his time talking to my cat, Vinny was listening, and he knew Craig was there to help him.
Craig saved my Vinny.
I would recommend Craig to anyone in need of his services.
Sincerely; Antonio Cordeiro

Thanks very much Antonio, for the kind words. The rescue went well. Poor Vinny was wedged in a small crotch of the tree and couldn't move. He was probably chased up there escaping from a dog. I'm glad we could help. We'll be by soon to look after pruning the trees at the front. Thank you for everything, see you soon.
All the best, Craig.

Removal of Pine Trees Next to House

My daughter purchased a home with a tall pine growing 10 inches from the eavestroughs and house. Craig arrived with his team and carefully removed the tree.

He and his team are pleasant, careful and professional.

Thank you Sonya,
The Balsam tree we removed was another example of a fine tree that unfortunately was planted too close to the house, long before your daughter moved in. It was too large to be transplanted, as equipment couldn't manoeuvre so close to the foundation. The tree would likely have caused damage to the roof and shingles in the near future during heavy winds and may have caused foundation issues moving forward. Although we tried to save the top of the tree to be used as a Christmas tree for the house, it turned out to be rotten and fell apart.
I guess the only positive was that by being proactive, damage by the tree was avoided and the diameter of the tree was still small enough that it didnt require a permit.
Thank you for the winter work. We always appreciate every job we are awarded, especially during the winter months when our season has slowed and we aren't as busy as other times of the year.
Many people aren't aware that we work throughout the winter and those that do, always enjoy taking advantage of our seasonally reduced rates, especially when prices seem to be rising everywhere.
We look forward to returning in the spring to trim the large Elm tree in the back yard.
Until then, I hope you and your family enjoy the holiday season and we wish you all the best in the new year.
Thank you for choosing CB Tree.
Sincerely, Craig Telenko

Problematic Weed Tree

In June, Craig was out to remove a very problematic Manitoba Maple tree that was damaged by the windstorm. A major limb of the tree had broken and hung precariously over ours and the neighbour's fence/deck, at a 45 degree angle. Until he received the City's permission to remove the broken limb (but not the remainder of the leaning tree), Craig shored it, preventing it from breaking off and causing further damage.
Lately, we were concerned the remaining half of the leaning tree was unstable, therefore, obtained a permit from the City to remove it entirely. We received another, considerably higher, quote and requested Craig to do the work. There was a major obstacle with the trunk, i.e. over the years, the tree grew into the chain-link fence, embedding it within. Craig worked very hard to cut through the trunk, destroying and/or dulling several blades of his equipment (chainsaw, sawzall and stump grinder). He managed to complete the job perfectly, leaving no trace of the tree or chain-link fence.
We highly recommend the efficient, hard-working team of CB Tree; Craig and his crew are reliable, friendly, honest and do excellent work, ensuring the customer is satisfied.

Hi Mary, I'd like to thank you very much for taking the time to post a review. . The Manitoba maple tree removal went without incident and now that the stump is out, the fence construction can be completed as planned. Thank you for the kind words. I'm told that as a result of your review, and all the others this year, we're in the running for Best of the Best Tree Service, again this year. It wouldn't happen without the excellent reviews our customers give us and it doesn't go unnoticed. Please know that anyone you send our way will be treated well also.
Thanks again, all the best, Craig.
