I am so impressed with this company! We had a huge Norway Maple at the back of our property that had reached the end of it's life. It had been struck by lightening a few years ago and had dropped some huge limbs during wind storms. Neighbours pointed out damage on the back side of the tree that we hadn't noticed. It looked like the tree posed a serious hazard to the five properties it overhung. We were concerned and called Toronto Tree Removal to have a look as they had been recommended very highly by a friend of ours. Even though it was over the Christmas break, Aaron Hill came by to assess the tree. It was in worse shape than we knew. Not surprisingly Aaron found the tree posed an imminent hazard and sent along a very reasonable quote for the job. We accepted the quote and Aaron submitted his arborist report to the Urban Forestry Dept. identifying the tree as an imminent hazard. The city agreed with this assessment and ordered the tree to come down within 72 hours. Aaron managed an extension for a few extra days while we negotiated with neighbours for the use of their private drive for removal of the tree as egress between houses is quite narrow. It also gave me time to clear the area of bird baths, sculptures, furniture and assorted accumulated junk and take down a few fences in our garden.
Aaron's crew, who were a personable and encouraging mix of young men and women arrived bright and early on the appointed day and immediately figured out the most efficient way to get take the tree down without damage to all the garden sheds, fences and garages it was right in the middle of. To describe this removal as difficult would be an understatement. They worked with such high levels of skill, efficiency and attention to detail it was impossible not to be thoroughly impressed. I took the entire day to get the tree down and the crew left as it got dark. Aaron and another crewman returned the next morning to clean up all the sawdust in our yard and the neighbours yards. While it was traumatic to loose such large tree that had supported the local wildlife for so long, Aaron and his crew made it much less so. We are very satisfied and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company. Thanks so much Toronto Tree Removal, your reputation is well earned!
