Tree Removal in Old Mill neighbourhood

I highly, strongly and unequivocally recommend Chris at Higher Place for residential tree removal in Toronto. He's responsive, honest, ethical, very knowledgeable (not just about trees, but also about the City's process), and reasonably priced. He's also very committed to supporting Toronto's canopy and biodiversity. Truly a pleasure. Chris removed two large Manitoba Maples, and two smaller non-permit trees, from our backyard in September 2022 - he made recommendations, took care of the application/permit process, provided regular updates, took no money until the job was complete (!), and cleaned up perfectly and completely. Our neighbours marvelled at his work.

Thanks again Chris for a job well done!

Old tall Maple tree removal

We had an old, tall (~60ft) Maple tree at our backyard that required to be removed. Chris was pleasant and wonderful to work with; He answered all the questions we had, and gave us the confidence and professionalism we were looking for.

He and his team showed up on-site and was efficient with the tree removal process. I would highly recommend Chris and Higher Tree Care.

Tree removal and pruning

Excellent and professional tree care service by Higher Place Tree Care!
We needed a very large willow tree and some dead cedar trees removed as well as other overhanging branches pruned back from wires.

Chris (owner) did an assessment and promptly provided a comprehensive written quote. The work was scheduled and completed in a timely and very efficient manner. All the debris was removed and the property was cleaned up very well.

Chris is extremely knowledgable, friendly and professional. We are very impressed with his service and highly recommend this company. We will be using Higher Place Tree Care again next year!

Tree Pruning - Mature Oak

Chris was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He's very professional, well organized, efficient, very knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. I particularly liked his respect for the neighbours, such as using quiet electric saws when possible, rather than gas. The clean up was perfect, including debris on the neighbour's yard. Pricing was reasonably competitive, good overall value for the service.

Tree Pruning

Chris was diligent, professional and accommodating. He did an amazing job with taking down large dead branches, pruning back limbs that were hovering over the roof and went so far as to cut down branches that he deemed unhealthy even after giving his initial quote. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and informative. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an arborist or tree maintenance of any sort.

Great work, fair and efficient

Chris responded quickly to my request. He seemed knowledgeable and respectful of not only the tree and my property but every property affected by the felling of this tree. His estimate came in a full $3000 less than a quote from one of the bigger guys so it pays to shop around. Would absolutely hire these guys again.

Removal of two large trees

The team at Higher Place Tree Care were very professional and courteous. They removed two large trees safely and left the property completely clean of any branches, leaves or debris. They also took care to ensure the neighboring property was cleaned up. They moved anything in the way themselves before starting, and then put everything back at the end. They showed up on the scheduled day right on time as well, and then checked to ensure I was happy with the work they performed, before leaving. I would definitely recommend to others!

Damaged branches, safety, more light

Recent storms had damaged several branches on two trees. Chris came by and gave us a quote to remove damaged limbs, to remove branches hanging over our roof (and our neighbours) as a safety precaution, and to create more light in the garden. He and Sam turned up on time, did the work efficiently, and left our patio in excellent order. Will definitely use Higher Place again. Thanks, Chris!
