Safe, efficient removal of Large Black Locust Tree from Backyard

We called Elite Tree Care to quote on the removal of a very large Black Locust tree from our backyard. On a holiday weekend, we happened to notice that the tree didn't look particularly stable, and were concerned about its overall structural health, particularly as children play in the backyard, and branches extended very high and over our neighbours' backyards on each side of our property at the back.

We were so happy and fortunate that it was Riley who we selected to take on this job. It's not everyday that you come across a vendor who is courteous, professional, measured, knowledgeable and who can manage client expectations. Riley and his crew did just that. To sum up, Riley:

-assessed the viability of the tree on the day we called him
-provided a very competitive quote that same evening (just as he said he would)
-described the approach for the removal, and patiently answered our questions about the process
-communicated immediately with the City for an exemption-our tree did pose in an imminent hazard - and he received it within 24 hours
-temporarily braced the tree on Friday in preparation for removal on Monday
-arrived promptly on the morning of the removal
-mobilized his team efficiently
-set to work quickly and made visible progress
-cleaned up thoroughly at the end of each day
-touched base with us on the progress

Basically, he did everything he said he would do, and did it safely, respectfully and without any drama.

We will always miss our tree, but are definitely happy that we worked with Elite Tree Care, and look forward to working with them again when we are ready to select some new tees to plant in the backyard.

Elite Tree Care is a company that truly loves and cares about trees! Riley did not take the removal of the tree lightly, and understood how much the tree meant to our family. We highly and wholeheartedly recommend Elite Tree Care!

Cedar Hedge trimming

Our cedar hedges around the back garden had gotten out of control. They had not been tended to in over 10 years. So, we called in Elite. They did a great job of trimming and cutting back. Efficient and safe. Thank you.

Highly recommend this company

I received a prompt response to my request for a quote. An arborist came and gave me a complete report on work recommended and a quote. The work was done as discussed and the garden left clean and tidy. I would highly recommend this company.

Tree Service

I received quotes from various suppliers and Riley @ Elite was awarded to perform various tree services (remove & Trim) for both my 2 neighbours and my property. It was based on his professionalism, detailed quote and competitive pricing. Once on site, Riley and his assistant went to work as planned and left the area clean from debris.
Everyone was very impressed with the results and is easy to recommend Riley @ Elite for making it positive experience!

Removal of old silver maple

We were thoroughly impressed with the professionalism of the entire crew. We had a very large, old, decaying silver maple in our backyard. The team managed all the preparation and permits required by the city. The tree came down safely and it was an incredible process to watch. Clean up was great and the back yard is now ready for a new look.

Tree Removal

Thanks to Kris and the team at Elite Tree Care. The company was professional throughout, from providing a timely quote and removing the tree as scheduled. Given the size, poor condition and location of the tree we needed removed, Elite Tree Care was reasonably priced. Our problem tree was safely removed without any damage to property. I would definitely recommend the company.

Removal of my mature, dying, weeping willow

I was served with an order to remove my weeping willow from my back yard as it was deemed to be no longer structurally sound. Riley, the owner, and crew made it look easy despite the tree's massive size. Everything was complete in two days and the job was a complete success. Riley also assisted in trimming back my overgrown hedge at no extra charge. Thanks Elite Tree. You deserve 11 out of 10 stars. Winton D.

Norway Maple Tree Removal and General Pruning

Elite Tree Care removed a 2.5 ton "weed tree" in the corner of our back yard. It was a beautiful Norway Maple with multiple trunks but it had become unhealthy and unsafe.
Our experience with Elite from start to finish was top-notch. After noting the work they had done for two of our neighbours, we called them on a Friday and their arborist came out the next business day to assess the tree and some other work we needed done. Wenda took the time to answer all our questions and discuss next steps in detail.
Going forward, Elite handled everything smoothly, efficiently and professionally, including the City permit application process. They gave us a clear picture of what to expect and the timelines involved, and nailed it. Everything was done on time and exactly as detailed in the quote.
The crew arrived on schedule the day of the operation. Watching Riley and his crew take the tree down was fascinating and impressive. The process required expertise and strategic manoeuvring to avoid damaging property – ours and our neighbours'. Everything -- removing the tree, grinding out the stump, removing a smaller tree and stump and pruning back several other trees -- took approximately 6 hours on a very hot, humid day.
The crew of 5 operated like a finely tuned machine, endlessly rotating between pruning, cutting, roping, hauling and chewing up tree limbs. Throughout the day, they were always available to talk to us, providing detailed explanations of steps they were taking, giving advice on landscaping, etc. They were respectful of our property and of our neighbours’. They cleaned up all debris, leaving our yard and driveway neat and tidy, minus one large tree.
We were very happy with Elite’s work and pleasantly surprised at how easy the whole experience turned out to be – for us. Thank you, Kris, Riley, Wenda and crew.
