A Climbing Arborist

After my research of tree service experts in Ottawa (thanks to HomeStars.com to facilitate my research), I finalized my top 3 companies to prune my 30-year-old Norway maple tree in the front lawn and another small tree on the side. Colin from Climbing Bear came to my house to look at the trees and told us what needed to be done. He gave us a very reasonable quote, and we decided to go ahead with Climbing Bear and booked the time for the job in the same week. Colin did an amazing job! Colin and his assistant also did a good clean-up job as well. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Tree between two buildings

Exceptional work, reliable, and reasonably priced. He looked after the application to the city, a complicated removal of a dying tree, and all of the cleanup afterwards. We would recommend Colin to anyone needing tree service. In fact, both of our neighbours asked for his contact information.

From Small Job to Big Job

It started with an emergency situation.  The contractor working on the house told us that they can't finish their job until the big branches over the roof are removed.  They didn't mention it before starting the work.  It was already Friday evening and I desperately contacted six tree removal companies.  Colin was the first to reply, came to have a look, and removed the branches.  Everything was done in a week. He saved us from paying extra for keeping the contractors.  We had him again for pruning other trees also, and now are in the process of removing two mature Manitoba Maple trees.  Professional, easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and the rate is reasonable.  Feeling so lucky to find him in Ottawa! Highly recommended.

Planting of 10 emerald cedars

Colin is a wealth of knowledge and very thorough and clearly experienced. He effortlessly planted 10 trees at our house. He ensured to provide watering and feeding tips to ensure best growth. He also returned to our home a few days later to ensure all was in order with the trees. Highly recommended for any tree planting, removal or maintenance projects.

Hey thanks there, I've planted 400,000 trees in my life, and its a real pleasure to keep the count going. Here at climbing Bear Tree care we want to preserve and prune much more than remove, thanks for the business!

Amazing Job!

Colin came out and did such an amazing job! He quoted us a very a competitive price and was extremely professional. He also slotted us in a lot sooner than a few of the other quotes I had received which was much appreciated.

Apple tree pruning

We had Colin come and trim our large apple tree. He was very knowledgeable and did such a great job while he was here our neighbour came out and hired him to trim a tree in his backyard. He provided a free quote and then completed the work quickly and did a great job cleaning up after. We would recommend his services.

It was a real pleasure to work on your apple tree! Ornamental pruning is a careful and deliberate action. The shape of flowering trees is key to maintaining their beauty. I appreciate the opportunity for the work, everyone here at Climbing Bear Tree Care thanks you!

Tree cutting and pruning

It was quite a pleasure dealing with Colin. He came to see the site within hours of posting the request in Home stars. He was professional, courteous and provided a reasonable quote for the job. He finished the job with my 100% satisfaction. Thank you Colin.

Climbing Bear Tree Care - tree advice/trimming

We hired Climbing Bear Tree Company to look at a few very large, older trees that were showing signs of damage/rot. Colin came to our house within days of contacting him, listened carefully to our concerns, gave us his assessment of the trees and recommended route plus options, depending on our wishes. This last part really impressed me because it showed his ability to understand our wishes within the scope of what the trees needed. In other words, he didn't take a 'slash and burn' approach.
We worked out a mutually agreeable price (with written quote ), date to do the work, and he showed up on schedule, and on time. He and his partner got straight to work, with all the proper safety equipment, and carried out everything as quoted. He also provided further information about our trees once he got up to the trouble spots. He seems to know a lot about the different species, works with preservation in mind, and is very good at communicating his ideas. I would hire this company again, and recommend them to others in the Ottawa area.

Thanks for the glowing review Kathleen! Climbing your birches, pine and Willow was a real pleasure. When we give an assessment of a tree we always try to compromise between the customers wishes and the trees health. Since I could tell you cherished your tree so much it was easy for me to provide you a long-term tree healthcare plan. Everyone here at climbing Bear tree care really appreciates your business!

Arborist

Colin does amazing work. We had 3 large fir trees in our backyard that need trimming/care while we needed advice on how to tend to them in future. Colin did an amazing trimming job on the trees (from the top down) in the beginning of Dec and winter. His expert knowledge took care of the trees’ immediate needs while he reassurred us that all was well with the trees going forward with certain minimal care. Colin is a wealth of knowledge, does great work and is fair and reasonably priced.

Thanks alot Mike. great to hear from.some.of my former customers in Toronto! I recall how precarious your trees were situated, being close to powerlines with the branches very wet. It worked out great regardless! From everyone at Climbing Bear Tree Care, we thank you!
