Red Maple-Pruning

Colin was trying to tell me that these trees need to go, but my family just loves them, especially in autumn they make my front yard look outstanding. I couldn’t imagine them being gone. There was a whole bunch of dead stuff in the canopy, and I couldn’t have my children coming and going under it. It was over the driveway. I didn’t have the heart to chop it down so I asked if pruning could save it. I’d say about a quarter of the canopy was dead branches. He couldn’t guarantee the tree would make a comeback, but he said maybe the living branches would grow where the dead one got taken out. He said it took him longer than expected cause he had to work around the living branches. When I got home all the dead branches were cleared out. Will see what happens next year… I was glad that Colin gave me the two options, next year if the trees really dead than I’ll call him back. Will see and hopefully that doesn’t have to happen.

Manitoba Maple- Scarborough

Colin told me the tree was a Manitoba Maple. I‘d been putting it off for a few years at this point, but it had to go. There were probably 3 main trunks growing up and between the telephone lines. I asked him to take special care because I just got my driveway paved and I was worried the asphalt might still be pretty soft. He told me they’d rig everything down, and on account of the telephone wires they were already taking the process slow and careful. I had a doctor’s appointment for around 1030 and came back around 1230. They were about half way done. I’m a little nosey when people work on my house, so I’d check in and give them a few waters. Anyways I watched them use the ropes and nothing got damaged. They got the tree down for 3 and cleanup was done for 6. It seemed like a pretty long day for two guys. The leaf blower was a nice touch since it let me make sure there was no damage to the asphalt underneath all the wood chips. They were clean, friendly, I thought it’d take two days but I was wrong. Very pleased, would recommend them.

Large damaged tree removal

I am familiar with the owners from Man With a Wrench so didn't hesitate to give them a call when a very large oak tree was partially downed by a storm at my family's cottage on Lake Simcoe. It posed a safety risk, especially with kids around. A crew of 3 showed up, told me their plan, and got to work. After several hours they had taken care of nearly all the branches and less than half the tree was left standing. They came back the following day to finish the rest and remove the stump. The work was done very carefully - nothing else around the tree was damaged. I was very satisfied and also happy I can continue to entrust jobs like this to the guys. Thanks!

Tree trimming

My tree was hitting my bedroom window so it needed to be trimmed. Man with an Axe have been excellent in the entire process from the initial call to when the job was done. They not only trimmed the portion I was concerned about but recommended I took care of a future problem with another branch. I was very happy with the team.

Siberian Elm Removal

A 60 ft tree close to power-lines. I was not sure if it belonged to the Mississauga municipality but Colin assured me that it was within the property and not city owned. I took a day off and occasionally watched them work. It was down in about 3 hours. There were a few dents in my lawn but I guess that's expected. They climbed it, It took them about another two hours for cleanup. I walked over and saw the tree was nearly hollow. Seems dangerous but everything went fine. They were clean and efficient, it went well.
