frequently asked questions

How do you maintain a tree?


To maintain a tree, regularly water, prune, and inspect it for pests and diseases. Mulching and proper fertilization also play key roles in ensuring its health and growth.

Can I cut down a tree on my property in Calgary?


In Calgary, you can cut down trees on your private property as long as they are not located on the City of Calgary easement. To confirm, you can call 3-1-1 and request that the city assesses the situation. Generally, any trees in your backyard or beside your house are considered your property.

Should I put mulch around a new tree?


Yes, you should put mulch around a new tree. Mulch helps retain moisture in the soil, suppresses weeds, and regulates soil temperature, all of which are beneficial for a young tree's growth. Just be sure to avoid piling it directly against the trunk to prevent rot.
