Tree Cutting in Montreal

Tree Cutting in Montreal

Cutting down a tree in Montreal presents certain challenges. Indeed, in a densely populated city like Montreal, tree felling is dangerous if you’re not a professional arborist. The proximity of the residences, the heat islands caused by the amount of concrete in the city, and the many condominiums represent major challenges when it comes to tree cutting in Montreal.

That’s why calling on a company specializing in arboriculture, like Arboricureuil, is of the utmost importance.

Cutting down a tree in Montréal

Before deciding to cut down a tree, it’s advisable to contact a company specializing in tree maintenance. Arboricureuil travels across the island of Montreal to analyze the health status of your trees and recommends the best solution if you are cutting down a tree for health reasons. If you are cutting down a tree for any reason whatsoever, Arboricureuil will give you a free estimate for the work.

The company has all the necessary equipment to perform the tree felling in total safety, even in a limited space such as a garden or an alley.

Before proceeding with the tree cutting in Montreal, the owner must obtain a cutting permit from their borough. To do this, they must present an updated certificate of location as well as the dimensions (diameter of the trunk, height of the treetop, etc.) of the tree to be cut down.

The conditions to be met to obtain a cutting permit are generally the following:

  • the tree is at risk of causing serious damage or is a nuisance to people or property;
  • the tree is dead, shows signs of irreversible decay, or suffers from a disease that is at risk of spreading to the rest of the vegetation;
  • the tree is affecting the growth of neighbouring trees of higher market value;
  • the tree is located in the site of a new building, a swimming pool, a parking lot, or an access road to a building.

If a tree to be cut down belongs to the city and presents one of the problems listed above, it is important to communicate with the borough in question before taking any action whatsoever.  

Tree removal at a condominium in Montreal

In the case of trees located at a condominium, it is necessary for all the co-owners to give their approval. This concerns trees located in gardens, common areas, and those attached to condominiums located on the ground floor. Each co-owner must sign an authorization letter.

The stages of cutting down a tree

Before safely cutting down a tree, Arboricureuil, like any good professional, makes sure to follow certain steps, such as securing the surrounding area, including vehicles, overhead power lines, roads, and pedestrian traffic.
The estimate provided by Arboricureuil takes these constraints into account, in addition to the condition of the tree.
Once the tree has been cut down, the technicians take care of the branch chipping and grubbing. Then, the pit will be resealed with soil or seeded, according to the customer’s request.
