Trillium Tree Experts Ltd. is company dedicated to tree preservation; however,  there are times when tree removal is necessary.

Our trained arborists have the knowledge necessary to recognize when a tree should be removed rather than preserved or maintained.

Reasons we may recommend that trees be removed include:

  • dead or dying
  • considered irreparably hazardous
  • causing an obstruction that is impossible to correct through pruning
  • crowding and causing harm to other trees
  • to be replaced by a more suitable specimen
  • located in an area where new construction requires removal

When it is determined that a tree has to be removed our removal technicians have the necessary skills and equipment required to perform the task in a safe and efficient manner.  Often times we are called upon to remove trees in confined areas such as small yards, close to houses and swimming pools. The obstacles are numerous and the potential for expensive damage or injury is high.  When it comes time to remove trees place your trust in the hands of the certified professionals at Trillium Tree Experts.

Distinctive tree permits

The city of Ottawa requires that all property owners obtain a permit before removing any trees greater than 50cm in diameter.  The process requires a report written by a certified arborist. When Trillium Tree Experts is contracted to remove a distinctive tree we write the report and obtain the permit on behalf of the property owner.

Tree Stump Grinding

Tree stumps can be unsightly as well as a nuisance.  If stump grinding or removal is required we have the necessary equipment for that task and can access stumps in most backyards.  When removing or grinding a tree stump we offer the following options:

  • stump grinding only
  • stump grinding with cleanup
  • stump grinding with cleanup and reinstatement

Important notice: grinding of stumps is considered to be a cosmetic or an aesthetic application.  When grinding stumps all areas of the tree stump and roots above the soil surface will be ground down below grade. However, a large portion of the stump and root system will remain below the soil surface.  Therefore, if your intention is to plant a new tree nearby you may have to address roots or consider moving the tree to a more suitable location.
