Arborist; tree care-removal

It's hard saying goodbye to a tree that's provided 80+ years of privacy, dappled sunlight and birdsong. My beautiful tree was infected with the emerald ash borer; the top third of its canopy already destroyed.

It had to come down. And I was an emotional wreck.

But Eric & Mark Batty and the entire crew at Brooklin Tree Care made the falling of my beloved tree as painless as possible. Eric came in the house to give me hourly updates so I didn't have to watch. He and Mark worked non-stop for 11 straight hours to get the job done. Other than wood chips from the chainsaw, one couldn't tell a gargantuan tree was once there. The clean up in my yard and that of neighbouring yards was seamless. Attention to detail in every aspect of this operation was top notch, professional and competitively priced.

It will be my honour to recommend Brooklin Tree Care to all my neighbours, friends and family.

As a matter of fact, in conversation with my brother-in-law this past weekend, he told me about the great local company he used last week to prune the trees on his five-acre lot. He was speaking of Brooklin Tree Care!

Good news truly does travel fast.

My heartfelt thanks to Eric, Mark, Mike, Ken and Brie for your expertise, professionalism, and gentle manner.

Willow Tree Pruning

My Willow tree had become quite large and took up much of my townhouse back yard as well as hanging into my neighbour's yard. The tree also had damage from the ice storm. Eric and Mark cleaned it up so that it is now much healthier and i once again have light in my house. Eric checked in with me to ensure i was aligned to what they were doing. They were knowledgeable about my tree. I couldn't have asked for better service.

Maple Pruning & Supporting

Mark and Brie were on-time with the bucket truck and chipper and safety equipment. They worked well and efficient to trim our maple tree that is over 50 ft. high in terms of trimming and supporting to offshoot limbs with the main trunk. They explained what they were doing and ensuring that I was on-side.

Tree Removal

Just had a big tree removed from my backyard. Eric came highly recommended and after a phone conversation, Eric came to the property as promissed with a great estimate. He was very professional cost was more than reasonable and all that we discussed was taken care of. It is great to see this profesionalism nowadays. I highly recommend this company. In a matter of fact I will be hiring Eric again toward the end of the fall to plant a new tree as well.

Tree maintenance and removal

We called Brooklin Tree Care as we had very tall trees that were overhanging near the site of where we were installing a pool at our home in Raglan. We needed them to be trimmed, but it was important to us to keep the integrity and health of our beautiful trees. We also had some dead pines that we needed removed. Eric and his team did a fantastic job pruning down the trees to keep them healthy, to clear the area we needed and kept them looking natural. He removed three dead trees as well and cut them into fire wood length and neatly piled them near our fire pit for us. His knowledge and passion for what he does always came shining through, and they left our yard just as clean as it was before they did the work. The quote was very reasonable and well explained. He also gave us some valuable suggestions as to what to plant in the fall to add some variety of trees to our property and took the time to show us how to perform proper maintenance on our own. We were VERY happy with their service and professionalism, thoroughly enjoyed working with them on this project and would highly recommend their services!!

Tree trimming and removal

Eric and his crew arrived on time, as promised. The crew were very efficient in getting the job done in a timely fashion and were amazing at cleaning the yard while they worked. I even asked for a few extra things to be done, while they were here and they completed them, without hesitation. Very impressed with Brooklin Tree Care and would definitely refer them to friends and family.

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

We have a lot of trees where we live and quite a number of them needed work. Eric walked around the property with us so he could get an idea of what needed to be done and how to prioritize the work to be done. During the walk Eric's passion for what he does became evident. He gave us a whole new way of looking at what we have...including a twin set of mature black cherry trees that we had never really noticed were similar.

Eric gave us an estimate for what we agreed was to be phase one. The quote was well thought out and well organized.

When it came to the work actually being done, it was on schedule and we were quite surprised and pleased at how much was accomplished in one day. It only goes to show that having experts involved is the way to go. We were very happy with the removal and clean up. We look forward to getting phase two done next year. Thank you Eric!
