Richmond Hill arborists
A healthy, thriving tree is an asset to any property or public area, being the perfect combination of beauty and value. Trees create shade, absorb carbon dioxide and enrich the air with oxygen, contribute to biodiversity, and improve curbside appeal.
However, to continue being an asset rather than a liability, trees need regular checkups, timely maintenance, and appropriate care. Trees may need to be removed from a property if it is diseased, dying, or hazardous.
Whether you plan to plant some trees on your property, need to have your existing trees examined, trimmed, or pruned, or have trees or stumps that need to be removed, the experienced arborists of Tree Menders have got all your tree needs covered in the Richmond Hill area.
The difference between an arborist and a certified arborist is–you guessed it–certified by a professional organization, such as the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). It is someone who is knowledgeable in the care for the maintenance of trees. To become an ISA certified arborist you must have passed your examination and have a minimum of 3 years working experience in tree care, or a degree in a related field. Certified arborists have been trained in all areas, including tree risk management, safe work practices, tree biology, and diagnoses, etc.
Choosing where to plant
When deciding where to plant a tree, you will need to consider some factors. For instance:
- What will the tree look like as it matures? How tall and wide will it be?
- Will the tree have enough room to grow?
- Does it need its own space, or can I plant other trees near it?
- Is this area right for this species of tree? Will it have enough sunlight and shade?
You need to make sure the tree you are planting will be a safe distance from any power lines or buried wires or cables on your property. If you aren’t sure about the local regulations, it is best to contact your municipality.
Preparing the soil
For your new tree to reach its full potential, the soil needs to be suited to the needs of its particular species. A tree species that does well in sandy soil won’t thrive in heavy, clay-rich soil, and vice versa.
Your soil needs to have good drainage and sufficient air circulation to avoid root rot, and it shouldn’t be packed too tightly.
A good rule of thumb is to create a planting hole as deep and twice as wide as the root ball of the young tree.
Taking care of the new tree
A newly planted tree will need more water as it adapts to its new home. Depending on the weather, a good watering frequency is once every five days to start and then once a week from then on out.
To retain moisture and keep weeds from choking your new tree, apply a layer of mulch around the tree. In windy areas, young, pliant trees should be staked in the first year to keep from bending or falling.
When you hire one of our Tree Menders professionals, you don’t have to worry about any of this. We handle it all for you to ensure your tree will thrive.
Pruning is a necessary component in tree maintenance to ensure:
Tree health. A weakened or dead branch could become an entryway to disease and damage or kill your entire tree.
- Safety. Weak or dead branches can fall, putting people and property at risk. Regular pruning prevents such unnecessary hazards.
- Clearance. Over time, you will need to make sure branches don’t grow close to windows, power lines, or anywhere else they might become a nuisance or hazard.
- Appearance. An overgrown tree can give an unkempt look to the whole property. Keeping a tree in shape improves its appearance and increases curbside appeal.
The certified arborists of Tree Menders will work on your tree using the proper thinning methods to maintain its long-term health and beauty.
Taking care of the new tree
Sometimes, sadly, it may be time to say goodbye to a tree on your property. The reasons may be any of the following:
- A diseased, damaged, or dead tree.
- A tree that has become hazardous to people or property.
- A tree’s roots interfere with the foundation of a building.
- A tree taking up space that the property owner needs for other purposes.
No matter why you may need to remove a tree, the professionals of Tree Menders will carry out the job with utmost efficiency, always putting your safety first.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Everything you need to know about our arborists
Do I need an arborist?
That would depend on several factors, including your knowledge, skills, time, and the type of work you need to have done on your property. While some jobs, like tree planting or light trimming, could be done by a DIYer with minimal expertise, heavy pruning, tree removal, or stump removal should be left to professionals. If your tree maintenance requires expert tools, or if you encounter symptoms of tree disease you can’t identify or handle, it is best to reach out to experts with proven experience.
How do I know an arborist is qualified?
When choosing a tree expert, you want to make sure you and your property are in the hands of professionals. You should look for the following:
- A certified arborist. You will want to work with certified professionals, preferably with an ISA certification, an arboriculture industry standard.
- An experienced arborist. An experienced arborist is more likely to handle any tree-related issues successfully. You might also want to look at client reviews of their services.
Company insurance. For example, certain tree services, such as tree removal or heavy pruning, may be risky even with proper handling. There are no guarantees against accidents, and a reputable arborist will have personal and property damage insurance and workers’ compensation insurance.
How is an arborist different from a landscaper?
Landscapers are typically experts in the aesthetical improvement of the yard and in lawn and shrub maintenance, including irrigation, trimming, and mulching. While these are professional jobs, they are typically low-risk and don’t require the same level of expertise as tree maintenance and removal.
A professional arborist knows all about tree care and maintenance and is qualified to safely remove branches, trees, and stumps.
If I am working on a tight budget, what should I prioritize in tree maintenance?
First, any hazardous trees should be closely monitored or removed, followed by preventative healthcare for your other trees to avoid future issues. Aesthetic maintenance comes after that. A professional arborist will help you make the right decision for tree care on your property.
