ArborCare Residential Tree Services
ArborCare offers a wide range of tree services in Vernon, Edmonton and Calgary, such as:
A tree will need to be removed if it is:
- Too large
- Not of sufficient health and vigour
- Difficult to access to a construction site to successfully relocate or transplant
- Raising safety concerns
When one of these issues arises, our arborists can be on site to eliminate dead or diseased trees, as well as those that are a risk to property or structures.
Tree stumps can pose threats to structural damage.
As they continue to grow after the tree is chopped down, their roots can grow into water pipes, emerge above ground, and cause problems with fencing and cracking cement.
Our arborists can help turn obtrusive stumps into environmentally-friendly landscaping mulch.
The proper planting of a tree is one of the most important steps you can take to ensure that it grows up to be healthy.
You might want to plant trees to:
- Help reduce heat in urban areas
- Reduce erosion and the effects of flooding
- Shade areas of your home that receive the most direct sunlight in the summers
- Increases the value of your home
- Reduce your carbon footprint
Without proper expertise, some important knowledge might be missed that result in harming your trees including their ability to acclimatize to local climate and conditions.
Tree pruning is essential for maintaining the health, growth, and structure of trees and shrubs.
Regular pruning minimizes the risk of broken limbs and falling branches, and a properly pruned tree will have fewer diseases as well as clean, even growth.
To prevent overcrowding and promote tree health, tree restoration is crucial.
The crown restoration process removes branches to improve space and restore the natural, beautiful canopy of the tree.
Canadian prairie/foothills weather can be harsh.
With frequent freezing rain, snow and windstorms, natural disasters often wreak havoc on our trees.
We offer emergency tree removal services after a storm as well as preventative services.
By taking the initiative to properly prepare your property prior to disaster strikes, you can help your trees survive the storm.
Our experts offer advice on how to properly care for trees for the beautification of your property.
We provide consulting and assessment that include the condition of the tree (roots, trunk, crown, branches, foliage, etc.), the life expectancy of the trees, replacement cost, functional (air purification, dirt/dust filtration, effects on privacy, wind, sun, etc.) and aesthetic values.
Challenges for Canadian Homeowners
Edmonton, Vernon and Calgary are home to dozens of tree species, but that doesn’t mean growing conditions are always ideal.
Some of the challenges Canadians might face include:
The soil in Western Canada does not always offer sufficient drainage for trees. If water does not drain properly, sitting water can suffocate roots, depriving them of essential oxygen and nutrients.
Several hot, dry summers can leave trees without sufficient water. It may take a few years for signs of drought to become noticeable as the tree weakens and becomes vulnerable to disease.
Other Weather Issues
Early frosts, flooding and snow storms are some common disasters in Alberta. When disaster strikes, it can weaken the immune systems of many trees. Lightning can also deteriorate a tree or damage the root system.
Multiple diseases affect Canadian trees, from fungi that cause various types of rot to insect infestations that lead to Dutch Elm Disease and Elm Scale. Untreated diseases can lead to the death of a tree or spread to other trees nearby.
The sheer number of trees in one area can lead to overcrowding problems. Trees that grow too close together must fight for nutrients to survive. Roots may not have enough room to spread, which can leave the tree vulnerable to damage.
