Removal of two large trees - no problem!

If you are looking for 1) amazing customer service 2) competitive quote 3) contractor who does what he says he will do 3) updated communication 4) job well done...then run to Skylark.

We contacted Skylark for quote to remove two large trees in our front yard. They responded quickly and showed up within a few days to have a look at the work - Gaelan made some suggestions re: hydro/Rogers line that went through the trees and through his suggestions, we ended up saving money on the job because of a discount he offered (to disconnect during the removal process).

A very detailed quote came in via e-mail on the next day, we confirmed the job and after paying the deposit, had a day booked to do the job - with no lag time. Gillian in the office provided amazing customer service support!

Gaelen and his crew showed up when they said they would and took care of the job and did not leave a trace of their work. Incredible!

Great work by Skylark on our Silver Maple

We had Skylark Tree Care come to cut down a tree in our front yard (wasn't in good shape and was always dropping branches) and do some work on our giant Silver Maple in the back yard. To say we were satisfied is an understatement. From the beginning they were very friendly and knowledgeable, they cared about wanting the tree to be healthy, strong, and for us importantly, safe! They were able to trim back the tree to a much better shape and added cables up in it for stability as well as do some great work around the base with the chips from our front tree.

They seemed to love working on our tree which shows their passion for the work they do. If anyone is looking to have tree work done I can't recommend Skylark enough!

Saving and trimming our maple tree

My wife and I saw the Skylark Tree care team working on some trees in our neighbour’s yard and as they were completing their work, we asked them to look at our maple tree. It’s a huge maple that seems to be over-growing as its branches are not only blocking our view of the street but also encroaching on our eaves and roof.

After they cleaned up next door, Gaelan came to see us. He took the time to examine our maple tree and to ask us about our concerns. He explained to us that our tree was in danger of splitting in a few areas and recommended a cabling and bracing process to prevent that type of damage. He gave us a verbal estimate at that time and we told him that we would like to proceed after we return from vacation.

Skylark Tree Care followed up with a written estimate that was exactly the same as Gaelan’s verbal estimate. We paid the deposit and the service date was set. The day before the service date, we received an email confirming an 8 am start the next day.

On that day, their team arrived, at 8 am on the button, and commenced their work. After a few hours of work, followed by an extensive cleanup of ALL the branches, leaves, and residue, the job was all done. And what a spectacular job it was!

My wife and I were both totally happy with everything - the first assessment and estimate, the written estimate and invoice, the communication with Skylark Tree Care (before, during, and after the work), and the amazing friendliness of all the Skylark personnel we dealt with and who worked on our tree.

We will be recommending Skylark Tree Care to our other neighbour as well as to anyone else we meet who may be in need of tree service.

Goodbye Spruce

Our spruce tree had outgrown our yard so it had to go to make way for new. Gaelan’s price was competitive but his professionalism put him over the top to get the job and the professionalism showed through the entire job. The crew showed up on time and did a great job removing the tree and grinding out the stump. After inspection they took out the grinder again and removed even more of stump following the surface roots and did a great job of cleaning up the yard. The only thing left was the void where the tree once stood. They also had no problem with a last minute request to slice up the trunk into firewood sized logs.

Arborist Services in Oshawa

I was very selective when I chose Skylark. I wanted a company who put tree health above all else.

The initial assessment of my two at risk trees was done very quickly. Gaelan provided an extensive review of the trees and made recommendations: one could be saved, but one was in decline with perhaps only a couple of season left at best. His expertise in was evident as he showed us all the telltale signs of the tree's stress as it tried to compensate for the failing limbs and how it would deteriorate further in a short amount of time. He also confirmed that anything you do with a tree, even pruning, has to be done properly or you could hurt the tree more than help it.

All our trees are at least 60 years old, so very large. We hired Skylark to remove the sugar maple, patch the hole in the trunk of one honey locust, prune both locusts from above the house rooftops, and remove a pyramid oak stump left after the tree had died and been cut down few years back.

All work was exceptional. The crew showed up as scheduled and left the place in good order at the end of each day. The focus was on safety and proper tree care. The result is that both locusts look fabulous. They did not do anything to compromise these marvelous trees which I expect will still have a long life. I would not hesitate to hire them again or make a recommendation.

Very easy to work with

We had Skylark Tree Care remove some trees/stumps in our back yard that were causing problems with our fence. I was very happy with the level of communication and transparency with the pricing. They did a great job with the clean-up! I would definitely recommend Skylark Tree Care!

Tree Pruning

A neighour's fallen tree damaged part of my old Maple tree in my back garden. Sklyark came in October to provide professional advice and returned in March to recommend treatment and the cost involved. On an assigned date they carried out the recommendations. At all times the service was professional and reliable. I will contine to use Skylark each year. Excellent service always.

Tree Trimming

We have a large tree in our backyard with branches hanging low over our neighbour's property and wanted those branches cut back. Rather then cutting them off Gaelan suggested trimming off the ends to relieve the weight and then trimming off the dead wood throughout the rest of the tree. After getting a quote from someone who wanted to cut the whole tree down we were extremely happy with Gaelan's expertise and professionalism. He and his team did a great job! We would definitely recommend Skylark and will call them again if needed.
