Tree Removal

Trees have numerous benefits for any property.  They provide protection from the elements, shade relief from the hot sun, privacy from our neighbours and passersby as well as food and shelter for our birds and wildlife. And the simplest reason, they're beautiful.
Removing a tree can be a difficult decision but sometimes it may be the only option you have.
Our professionally trained arborists have the knowledge to help you make this decision and the right equipment to remove your tree safely and efficiently.
Cutting down a tree may be required for several reasons including dead or dying trees, crowding out other trees or being in the way of buildings or your view.
Maybe you'd like to remove a non-native tree so you can replace it with an environmentally beneficial native tree.
Emergency tree removal services for hazardous trees and storm damaged trees are available for your family and property protection.

Stump Removal

Stump grinding can effectively remove an unsightly, in-the-way tree stump.
Removing the stump can eliminate future hazards such as preventing injury from tripping over it and damage to lawn mowers from accidentally running over it.
Tree stumps can be havens for fungi and insects, which can in turn spread to your trees and infect them, causing future potential problems.  You can help protect your trees by having the stumps removed. 
New growth from the stump and root system can be an eyesore which takes away from the beauty of your yard.
Ask us about completing your tree removal job with our stump grinding service.  We can also remove an existing stump in your yard.
Think of the possibilities for the new space in your yard! Future tree planting, a new garden area, outdoor living space, children's playhouse or anything else you can dream of.

Tree Pruning

Properly trimming your trees increases their life span and lets their natural beauty shine.  Sometimes, it can be an option to completely removing a tree.
Dead or dying limbs are a safety hazard and should be removed to protect your loved ones and any objects or buildings below.
Tree pruning increases air circulation which can help to prevent disease and insect problems, as well as helping to make it more stable in strong winds. 
Limbs and branches hanging over or close to your home allow wildlife access to your roof, in turn giving them access to your roof and potentially gaining entry into your home.
Sometimes, you simply want to improve your view or the overall shape of your tree.
We can safely trim your trees whether it's to provide clearance for structures or walkways or to help improve the health and look of your tree.

Hydro Line Clearing

Trees encroaching on hydro lines can become a dangerous hazard. They can cause power outages and could cause damage to your electrical appliances, TV's and computers.
Our Arborists have been properly trained and are qualified to do tree work around power lines.  We can safely trim any branches or limbs that are growing near your power lines or through them.  Complete tree removal can also be done if necessary or desired.
Many people don't know that keeping privately-owned power lines clear of trees are the responsibility of the property owner, not your utility company.
If there is a pole on your property supporting overhead lines that lead to your home or building, and those lines aren't shared with other hydro customers, it's considered a privately-owned power line. 
If you have concerns about a tree that's too close to your hydro line, our Arborist can give you a free assessment and estimate.

When is the best season for tree pruning?

Will you wear spikes when you climb our tree?

We have an unwavering rule here at Black Creek Tree Service. If the tree IS being removed, then we may wear spikes when climbing.
If the tree is NOT being removed, spikes are NOT worn by our arborists.
This is important because every step we take with spikes on, leaves a wound in your tree which can make it susceptible to disease and decay.

Since no two tree removals or tree work are the same, we base our prices on a number of factors.
These include the size of the tree (height and canopy), the difficulty level, the amount of of clean up requested (wood left or taken away, brush chipped or taken away) and the location of the tree (is it leaning towards or above your house).
Your free estimate will provide you with all the information you need about your options, so you can make an informed decision.

I want to plant a tree.
Where can I find a list of trees native to my area?

You can discover which trees are native to Ontario by visiting this site by clicking on the link to: Tree Atlas Ontario

I've gotten a wide range of cost for my tree removal. Why is that?

There are several reasons for difference in pricing.
Always make sure you're comparing apples to apples and get it in writing. Our Arborist will provide you with a detailed, written estimate of the tree job we discuss.
Untrained and unskilled workers without the proper tools may use methods that aren't safe.  This could cost you dearly.  Your trees could be damaged or even your building. Experience and training matter.
Not having proper liability insurance can be your clue that you're dealing with a "fly by night" business.
At Black Creek Tree Service, we will gladly provide you with a copy of our liability insurance certificate.

Coniferous (evergreen) trees can be pruned anytime, although the winter dormant season can reduce resin and sap flow from the cut areas.

Late fall and winter are good times to trim deciduous (hardwood) trees.  There is a lesser risk of disease and insect infestation during a tree's dormant period, and the wounds from pruning limbs and branches heal quicker.

This time period also provides our arborists a better view of your tree's structure so we can decide on a plan of action that will be most beneficial to your tree's health.
