FAQ

Which method do you use to remove trees?

With Pine to Palm, there is no tree we can’t get to! We have both climbing arborists (meaning we climb the tree and take it town in small pieces) as well as a 60 foot bucket truck. If necessary, we will also use a crane.

Do you have insurance?

Yes, we are a fully licensed and insured tree service offering liability insurance as well as workers compensation. We are pleased the we never have had to use either the liability insurance or workers compensation. Safety is our top priority! We can provide you with a certificate of our insurance at your request.

Do I really need to hire an arborist if I have someone willing to cut/prune my tree?

Absolutely! It is highly recommended. Your friend/family member, no matter how well intentioned, does not have the correct insurance and expertise in order to complete your job safely. Tree removal is one of the most dangerous jobs in Canada and takes skill, experience and knowledge to do it safely! If something happens to your property, insurance may not cover you. If something happens to your friend/neighbor, you can be held liable and they can sue you. The question would be is it worth the risk? Saving a little bit of money is not worth destruction to your property or worse yet, someone getting injured or killed. When it comes to pruning, proper pruning practices are so important that the Province of Manitoba requires anyone providing this service to be formally trained and licensed. Making ‘stub’ cuts or ‘flush’ cuts are equally bad for your trees health. Also, if pruning trees with infection/blight, you can spread the infection to the rest of the tree if you do not take the necessary precautions in between cuts.

How must does it cost to remove a tree?

Cost is determined by the following factors and can range in the price between $100-$10,000.

Hazard level – Is the tree hazardous? Hazardous trees are more difficult to remove. More precautions are needed to take care of these trees safely. Please make sure to call as soon as you notice a problem with your tree! The longer the issue is left untreated, the more hazardous (and expensive) it becomes!

“Targets” - are there houses, garages, pools, power lines, etc that are surrounding or below the tree that cannot be damaged? We take every priority to make sure it is done safely without the surrounding structures/areas damaged!

Time – the amount of time it will take to remove/prune the tree.

Access/Location – what type of equipment is needed to access the tree , are there obstacles that need to be removed for us to access the tree? We also have the option of using land cover mats to minimize damage to your grass or surrounding area!

Size – if the tree is large in diameter, that means more effort in removing the wood from your property. Often large blocks of wood need to be cut in half or quartered just to be able to handle them.
