Just had Andrew come by to remove a medium sized evergreen in my front garden. Very quick and efficient service. Price was better than other quotes I received. Andrew even took the time to give us some planting advice and ideas too!
Andrew was the first one to reply my request and provided a detailed quote. I waited for a week for three other companies to get back to me, but in the end, Andrew's was the best. He also quickly scheduled a time for the removal of my tree, which had three big branches and very tall. His crew of 4 were very professional, super efficient and extremely organized, they definitely developed a wonderful workflow and amazing work ethics.
They left my lawn even cleaner than it was. I had a guest in my house when he and his crew working in my property, and the guest already asked me for his contact.
I strongly recommend him and his crew to do the service anyone needs. I'm also going to hire him for future work, including replanting a tree.
Thank you so much for the feedback and referral to your guest. The crew will love to see your review as it helps to motivate them when they hear how their hard work is recognized. Thanks again for hiring us!
We contacted Andrew to remove several trees from our property. We had used Andrew's services a few years prior to prune a very large tree and remove several diseased ash trees and were extremely happy with his service. This time, we had more diseased trees removed as well as a very large blackberry tree. Andrew and his team did an excellent job, removing all the trees to the ground and cleaning up the debris afterwards. Additionally, he also pruned back another tree and part of our neighbour's tree that was overhanging into our yard. Not only that, Andrew came by a couple weeks later to spray some weeds that we had along the edge of our driveway. That was so nice of him to do that for us! As with our first service experience, this was one also exceptional. We very highly recommend Andrew and his team.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I love sharing feedback with the team.
Andrew and his team did a fabulous job pruning and trimming our mature backyard trees. This job was long overdue, and we are so glad that we did not wait any longer and emailed Andrew for a quote. Andrew emailed back within the day, and with a few emails we agreed to a date. They arrived on the set date, and worked so hard on a scorching and humid day!! Tree by tree Andrew worked meticulously thinning and pruning, and several hours later, our trees are rejuvenated, airy, and tidy. The cleanup was amazing, and whole yard looks great! Andrew also helped us with some tree health issues regarding a couple of our trees so we are off tomorrow to buy the necessary treatments, and thankful that he took the time to look at what was needed in the yard going forward. Andrew also has a kind demeanour, which we could also see in the way he worked with his young crew of apprentice teens. We are glad we read the reviews on Homestars! We made a good decision to hire Re Leaf and we will be using this company for all arborist work for our property going forward. Thank you, Andrew!
Thank you so much for your feedback and recognizing that I am mentoring my team. They love hearing positive feedback like yours.
Andrew and his young team removed 2 trees from my back yard. I was very pleased with their work and their attitude, set by the good example from Andrew himself. From Andrew's on-site visit forward, everything went as scheduled. Andrew's advice and expertise ensured that the work was completed efficiently and in a timely manner. My yard was left clean and tidy upon completion of the job. The price was fair. I would work with him again should the need arise.
Thanks, Andrew and the rest of the Re:Leaf Group team!
Thank you for the review. The crew and I love hearing positive feedback and appreciate the photos.
I really liked The Re:Leaf Group from the start. Quote was simple to get and was very fair. Had the job done today. You can tell they were pros. Every branch landed exactly where they wanted and they cleaned up everything. Definitely will keep the company in my contact list for future work. Thanks for a job well done!
Thank you Steve for your feedback. We aim to completely satisfy our customers and the team is thrilled you are happy with their cleanup.
Large maple tree desperately need maintenance with large branches hanging over the house and pool. Andrew methodically cut through the mess carefully roping and lowering branches so as not to damage anything below. He is just one of those guys. I doubt his pulse got above 70 the entire time he was in the tree. He made it look easy and the tree looks great. The cleanup was thorough and the price was reasonable. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Thanks for taking the time to provide a review. I appreciate your support and recognition that the work we do is more complex than it sometimes looks!
We had 3 trees that had to be removed. One was a large Maple that had exposed surface roots. Andrew and his team did a fantastic job to remove all of them including the stumps plus grinding the exposed roots. You would never know they were ever there by looking at our backyard now. We also had him prune a few more trees and shrubs. Very professional and pleasant to work with. Overall we were very pleased and would highly recommend him. Thanks Andrew
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We appreciate your feedback and kind words.
Andrew and his team did a great job on the trimming and clean up after the job is done. I asked 5 companies for quote and he is only one that response within reasonable time frame and understand what need to be done. I will recommend Re:Leaf for sure.
Thank you for sharing a review. Your support helps our business to continue to grow.

Andrew Evans H.L.T. is the owner and founder of ReLeaf Group and an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist.
Andrew unearthed his passion for trees during his high school summer vacation job at a local nursery, where he was introduced to all the different trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials. His first experience with nature was a lasting one. After two summers at the nursery he was hired as an Ontario junior ranger with the Ministry of Natural Resources and was stationed in northern Ontario, tasked with maintaining canoe portage trails and tree planting.
After graduating from high school, he knew he wanted to pursue a career in the green industry. He spent the next three years studying at Humber College graduating with honors in arboriculture (the care of trees) and received an honours diploma in landscape horticulture. He was awarded the Board of Governors' Award, which honours the most accomplished student.
From Humber College, Andrew was immediately hired by the City of Toronto and over the next thirteen years he was involved in pruning, removal, planting, fertilizing and inspection of trees in city parks and streets. As part of an select group, he spent six of those years working under contract to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency where he was trained to inspect trees for infestation of the Asian Long Horned Beetle and the Emerald Ash Borer.
The ReLeaf Group was founded as a part-time business to provide tree care service to private home owners but his exceptional reputation soon grew his business into a full time venture.
