We specialize in high risk removals and can provide you with the necessary expertise, knowledge, and equipment to remove the tree safely.

Every tree is different and unique, and when it comes to tree removal, this is no exception.  Whether your tree needs to be climbed and roped down in small pieces or removed with the assistance of a crane, our professionals are skilled & specialized in this practice and will determine the best and safest removal options for your unique situation.

If you feel that there is a tree on your property in need of removal, our Peterborough tree company can help.

Tree Trimming


The benefits trees provide to not only our environment but also our own lives are too long to list. It stands to reason: maintaining a tree’s health and well-being is important and necessary.

Deciding to trim your trees can come down to a range of factors.

  • Perhaps the tree has limbs that extend over your home or cottage, and that makes you nervous.
  • Maybe those larger limbs are starting to look a little brown.
  • Of course, it could just be that the limbs are blocking your view.

The truth is:trimming and pruning your trees is in their best interest and yours.

Proper tree trimming and pruning ensures that your trees are strong and properly structured to prolong their lives, and best provide shade and additional benefits to your property.

As an added bonus, trimming dead, diseased, or pest-infested areas can preserve the life of the trees in your yard for years to come.

Make sure to hire a Certified Arborist to ensure any tree trimming and pruning is done using the proper technique and practices to ensure optimal health for your trees.

Emerald Ash Borer Treatment

eab beetles

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) started cropping up in Michigan in 2002. It was shipped in from Asia via some improperly treated wood packaging.

Sadly, this invasive insect lays its eggs in Ash trees. The larvae of these insects feed on the tree’s cellular plant tissue, called cambium.

This infection ultimately kills the tree.

Experts believe EAB might be the most destructive tree pest to ever enter North America. Ontario has witnessed the loss of hundreds of thousands of Ash trees due to EAB.

But, at Van Till Tree Care, we offer treatment that lasts for two years. Call us today if you are anywhere near an infestation, or if you want to be proactive about protecting your beautiful Ash trees.
