frequently asked questions about arborists

How much is an arborist in Calgary?


Prices range from $275 - $10 000, depending on the type of job, scope and difficulty required for your tree care.

Is an arborist the same as a tree cutter?


an arborist is a more specialized tree professional who has undergone training in tree care, biology, and health. Arborists are knowledgeable about tree species, diseases, and proper tree maintenance practices. They assess the overall health of trees, diagnose issues, and provide recommendations for treatment and preservation.

Do you need a permit to cut down a tree in Calgary?


There was talk of permits coming to the City of Calgary to remove trees from private property in 2023. This has been implemented in other parts of the country but for the time being, you do not require a permit to remove a tree off your property as long as its not located on the City of Calgary easement. The City of Calgary tree map is a good resource to see which trees on your property are yours, but its best practice to call 3-1-1 and request urban forestry to come out and confirm. You can be fined for pruning, removing or otherwise affecting the health of city trees.

Are you locally owned and operated?


Yes we are, some of the bigger names in the tree industry in Calgary have been purchased by big name companies from the USA. We are 100% locally owned and family run operation. By supporting locally owned and operated companies you are supporting your community.
