Deep Pruning of 3 Mature Trees

Chris Brown and his help did a fantastic job doing pruning of three mature trees, a birch in our front yard, and a tree of heaven and maple in our back. In addition to pull growth back from the house, raised the crown of the maple, and removed substantial amounts of dead limbs and branches on trees that reached up 40-50 feet (best guess). They kept our backyard furniture safe, removed all cut parts and cleaned up (although given the size of the job, we did another round of clean up after ourselves). They did a great job, interacted with neighbors in courteous ways (one tree was rooted in a Neighbors backyard), and respected their property too (please note that I asked my neighbor for permission, and they then approved it with Chris, which made sense to me).

At the estimation stage, Chris came off as knowledgeable and helpful, and came off as someone who cared about the health and well-being of trees. I really appreciated his perspective and appreciation, which are some of the reasons we went with him. He did not disappoint. Were I to need another job done, I would absolutely seek him out!

a very competant business

Did as planned with care and attention to detail. A pleasure to work with. We needed trees trimmed without encroaching on the neighbours property. The debri was removed and any fallen branches on the neighbours property cleaned as well.

Tree Pruning and Removal

HIgher Place Tree Care delivered a professional, courteous and efficient tree pruning service on a large tree that was overhanging three homes on our street. Given how much work the job was, my neighbours and I were impressed at how the two person crew that included Chris, the owner, got it all done in a timely manner and left our yards looking perfectly neat. I highly recommend Higher Place for any tree trimming or maintenance needs.

Skilled and professional tree cutting

We highly recommend Higher Place Tree Care for your tree removal or maintenance needs. You really do get the personalized and professional attention of Chris, owner/operator, skilled arborist and tree worker. My neighbour contacted him (among other contractors) to discuss a major tree removal process. From the first consultation to the very end of actual removal and clean up, Chris was a superb: professional, amazing value for great service throughout, really puts an effort in developing trust with his clients. He was diligent in addressing questions to help us understand what to expect, gave a fair pricing/quote without being pushy and with no surprise charges, was very organized and skilled in removing the tree and grinding (day 1 with a crew of 5 people, day 2 with a crew of 2, both times with complete machinery). His team was on time, had a great system, was very thorough and safe, pleasant and ensured everything was clean after. The tree was on my neighbour's property but it required access to our property and coordination due to the location of the tree canopy and roots. My neighbour and I thank Chris and his team for their utmost professionalism and skill.

This could have been a very sensitive and stressful situation without Chris, and it was a pleasure to work with him and his team.

Tree Removal

Chris did an amazing job removing a silver maple from our backyard. He was professional, honest, and provided a fair quote. Chris liaised with an unreasonable City Planner on our behalf to eventually provide us with the outcome we wanted. No issues with the tree removal and the clean up afterwards was meticulous. I would definitely recommend Chris - a true professional. Much appreciated!

Significant Trimming to Maintain Maple - True Pro!

Chris was fantastic - very knowledgeable, open and honest, on time, efficient, respected our neighbours and made sure to leave things the way he found them in our backyard.

We needed to have some significant trimming to help save a big Manitoba Maple in our backyard that is experiencing some internal decay.

Chris provide thorough insight of our situation when he came for a free inspection. His quote was very reasonable and he followed through and did exactly what he said he would. He was on time, went straight to work and left the tree in great condition.

I'll definitely be calling Chris for our next job.

Amazing job!

Chris, thank you so very much for the outstanding job you and Sam did in my backyard…removing and trimming trees. You are punctual, very knowledgeable, and professional. It became very evident that you don’t waste any time…you are quick and efficient. You are very accommodating with your client’s wishes, even if it goes against your professional opinion. You have no fear and will not hesitate to remove a tree in a very challenging location. Your hard work and expertise is much appreciated. All in all, I would highly recommend you!

tree removal

The entire project went as estimated and discussed; there were no surprises; overall the prices are very reasonable; the service, communication and customer service is excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending or using Higher Place Tree Care again.

My backyard had an 80 ft plus Siberian elm which stood on the property line and posed a hazard to our homes. My neighbour and I wanted to be proactive and have it removed. We were aware of the enormity of the project; the complexity of navigating the City’s permit application process. We had concerns about how the elm could be removed with limited access to our backyards.

We chose Higher Place Tree Care because of Chris’s professionalism, expertise, and accessibility. We appreciated the time he took on the site visit to understand our project and concerns. He was knowledgeable, factual and patience addressing our concerns and questions.

Chris guided us in the best possible way with the City’s tree application process. He help assemble, file, and monitor the permit application. His knowledge of the application process and his willingness to guide us through it, was a deciding factor in choosing Higher Place Tree Care. We felt confident about our application.

Pending the outcome of our permit application, Chris provided us with two estimates; one for on-going maintenance; and another for tree removal. He understood the scope of our project. A time-line was provided for each option from the permit application date to the completion of the work. Our application was filed; approved in 3 weeks and a date scheduled for tree removal.

The removal of the elm was scheduled over a two day period. My neighbour and I touch-based with Chris about site preparation about a week before the date. Chris, his team and equipment arrive promptly and on-time on both days. It was impressive to watch; his team is skilled, efficient and strategic in their cuts to remove the elm safely. We watched in awe as they climbed, roped, cut, haul and chipped away. On Day 2, Chris and Sam came back to grind the stump and clean up the site.

Tree Removal

I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Higher Place Tree Care.
We had a tall pine tree that was dying and leaning and needed to be cut down.
Chris was a joy to work with. He was prompt in returning any calls and made the process very easy. HIs price was competitive and he did a great job. His team left the whole area nice and clean afterwards. I highly recommend him.
