Within the City of Vancouver removal of trees is very highly regulated by City Bylaw. Three tall trees were overgrown and their root systems had been damaged to the extent that they were canted towards our residence and threatened to fall on it in a windstorm. The firm Devine Arboricultural Servces Ltd. was contracted to catalogue all trees on the property, to describe the problem trees, and to assist in acquiring a City of Vancouver permit allowing removal of the three trees (with their licensed Arborist's report). When the permit was obtained Devine Arboricultural Svces Ltd. undertook the rather "techical" removal in a manner which averted damage to the very close-by residences (mine and my neighbour's). Devine neatly removed all vegetation for disposal and coordinated root-grinding and final cleanup on the property.
My wife and I were very pleased with the degree of professionalism and the quality of the work that was completed.
