General Questions

ISA certification stands for the International Society of Arboriculture certification. It ensures that arborists have the knowledge, skills, and training necessary to provide expert tree care.

Q2: Why should I choose an ISA Certified arborist for tree pruning and removal?

Tree Pruning

Q3: What are the benefits of tree pruning?

Tree pruning offers several benefits, including improved tree health, enhanced aesthetic appeal, increased safety by removing hazardous branches, and better sunlight penetration for lawns and gardens.

Q4: When is the best time to prune trees in Calgary?

The best time to prune most trees in Calgary is during the late winter or early spring when trees are dormant. This timing helps minimize stress and the risk of disease and pest infestation.

Q5: How often should trees be pruned?

The frequency of pruning depends on the tree species, age, and health. Generally, most trees benefit from pruning every 3-5 years, but some fast-growing species may require more frequent maintenance.

Tree Removal

Q6: When is tree removal necessary?

Tree removal is necessary when a tree is dead, severely diseased, poses a safety hazard, or is causing damage to property. It may also be needed for landscape renovation or construction projects.
