Tree removals can be a messy and dangerous job for homeowners — a professional tree removal service can help you avoid the risks of damage to people or property during the process.

Tree Removal Service

When considering a tree removal, it is important to consult with a trained arborist, who can evaluate the tree and provide recommendations on how to address the situation.

In some cases, pruning may be able to extend the life of the tree avoiding removal altogether. In others, the tree may require removal due to disease, structural issues, or just being in the wrong spot. A knowledgeable arborist can help you figure out what is best for each individual tree.

At Baum Tree Care, our professional tree removal services includes:

  • Safe removal of the tree
  • Chipping all the branches
  • Cleaning all wood and chips from the site
  • Stump grinding

When removing a tree, we chip the small branches into mulch and remove all large pieces of wood and mulch from the property.

Some clients may wish to have us leave the branches and other wood behind to take care of on their own, which lowers the cost of removal considerably. We can also leave the wood chip mulch from your tree. This can be used to mulch your gardens and feed the soil.

If you want to hold onto any of the materials from your tree, let us know.

Reasons for Removal

There are a number of reasons for tree removal, including:

  • Incurable diseases, such as Emerald Ash Borer or Beech Bark Disease
  • Structural issues, caused by decay, storm damage or previous pruning
  • A problematic location, close to utility wires, a building,
  • Building new structure/adding addition
  • Tree death due to severe droughts

On the other hand, sometimes tree removal is not actually necessary! Our team can help you evaluate whether your tree needs to be removed or if there is a pruning solution.

Habitat Trees

In natural ecosystems trees die and break down over time, leaving habitat for wildlife. In the urban forest, we lack these places for birds and other creatures to nest. For suitable trees and backyards, we can remove the crown of your tree, leaving the trunk as a habitat tree.

If you have a tree to be removed and would like to know if it would be a suitable habitat tree let us know!

Choosing a Tree Removal Company?

Whatever the reason for your tree removal, you want to ensure that your removal is done in a safe and professional way. Before hiring a tree removal company, you should ask some of the following questions:

  • Do you have a trained arborist on your team? Are they ISA certified?
  • Do you use personal protective equipment (PPE) on the job?
  • Do you have WSIB insurance coverage for your workers?
  • Do you carry liability insurance?


How much does it cost to remove a tree?

How do you remove a tree?

Typically, we use climbing and rigging techniques to remove trees. This requires no heavy equipment, therefore, we will do minimal damage to lawns and gardens. Occasionally, when access allows, we also perform removals with cranes.

Do you remove trees in the winter?

Yes, we do. While we do removals year round, removing trees during winter when the ground is frozen is often preferable. This means we don’t have to work around garden beds making the process quicker and easier. 

Do I need a permit to remove my tree?

Centre Wellington currently does not require any permits for removal of trees on private property. 

The City of Guelph does require permits for removals on properties larger than 0.5 acres. Please refer to the City of Guelph Tree By-law for more information.

Can I keep the wood from my tree?

Yes. Whether you want to use it for firewood, woodworking, or any other use, we are always happy to leave the wood from the removal. Please make sure to request this during the quote or at the time of booking your job, otherwise, we will take the wood with us.
