Trees are some of the most abundant living things on earth. At ArborCare Tree Service Ltd., serving customers across Western Canada, we know that better than most people. Trees not only grace our living spaces, they create the life-giving oxygen by which we survive and nourish thousands of other living species. The elements and compounds which trees create are the source of hundreds of products we consume and use daily—including wood, fruit, and additives.
The most common trees that we see in our area include the Colorado Blue Spruce, White Spruce, American Elm, Siberian Elm, Green Ash, Black Ash, Manitoba Maple (Box Elder), Larch, Bur Oak, Mountain Ash, Apple/Crabapple, Linden, Chokecherry, Birch, Laurel Leaf Willow, Hawthorn, Russian Olive, Scots Pine, Lodgepole Pine, Ponderosa Pine as well as many varieties of Poplar and Aspen trees.
