Arbutus Tree Service is a high quality local company that has served the Westside for more than 20 years. We are not part of a franchise, and we do not go home to the suburbs: we work and live in Vancouver’s Westside community. All members of our team are ISA certified arborists or in the certification program, we follow the strict standards set by ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and use the latest environmentally friendly techniques TREE WORK PRUNING We prune trees to reduce the risk of failure, to provide clearance from immovable objects, reduce shade and wind resistance, maintain health of the tree and to approve the aesthetics of the tree. TREE REMOVAL Typically done to remove dead, diseased or dying trees; or trees interfering with services to the home. STUMP GRINDING Stump grinding is used to remove the left over stump of a tree and its root systems. Using a large, rotating cutting disk, we can effectively and efficiently eliminate the remaining bits to a specified depth and diameter. CABLING/BRACING Cabling and bracing are strategies used to help correct and support a tree that has been compromised due to storm damage or natural causes. SEASONAL MAINTENANCE We take the preventive actions necessary to ensure the quality and health of your trees or plants, year round. INSECT AND DISEASE MANAGEMENT We use a combined approach of pruning and optimal soil conditions and taking preventative measures with an organic materials that will treat infestation.
