Eliminating fully-grown trees involves a complex procedure. Several aspects such as initial hazard evaluation, project strategy, executing the tree removal, clearing debris, and considerations after cleaning are crucial parts of this process.

Hedge Trimming

Trimming your hedge serves a purpose similar to that of pruning a fruit tree, though the approach differs significantly. Sculpting a hedge requires considerable expertise and is often viewed as an art form by many.

Tree Trimming

Trimming, distinct from pruning, refers to the method we use to guide the development and form of our plants. The purpose of trimming is to foster robust growth, and it is typically conducted biannually.


Pruning trees and shrubs is a vital aspect of their maintenance. This process is primarily concerned with eliminating excess growth that drains vital nutrients. Typically, pruning is carried out once every year.

24/7 tree Removals

Regarding safety, Summit Tree Care is always prepared to act. We offer emergency services available 24/7 for quick removal of storm damage or to address any urgent hazards.


Planting forms an integral component of our operations. As leading arborists in our community, we invest as much effort in the careful planting and cultivation of flora in Nanaimo as we do in its removal.

Ask About Our Arborist Reports

An arborist report is a professional document prepared by a certified arborist, which provides a detailed analysis of the health, condition, and management recommendations for trees. These reports are often used for various purposes, including supporting planning applications, guiding tree management decisions, and evaluating the impact of construction or land development on trees. Key elements of an arborist report typically include:

  • Identification of Trees: Detailed information about the species, size, age, and location of the trees on the property.

  • Health and Condition Assessment: Evaluation of the overall health of the trees, including any signs of disease, pest infestations, structural weaknesses, or damage.

  • Maintenance Recommendations: Suggestions for tree care, such as pruning, fertilizing, pest management, or other maintenance activities to promote tree health and safety.

  • Risk Assessment: Analysis of any potential risks posed by the trees, such as the likelihood of falling branches or the impact of root systems on nearby structures.

  • Impact of Nearby Development: If relevant, an assessment of how nearby construction or land development may affect the trees, and recommendations to mitigate any negative impacts.

  • Preservation and Management Plans: Strategies for preserving significant or heritage trees, and long-term management plans for the overall tree population on the site.

  • Legal and Regulatory Compliance: Ensuring that the management of the trees complies with local laws, regulations, and guidelines related to tree preservation and urban forestry.
