    Although we provide all the services that are common to most tree & garden service companies on Southern Vancouver Island, we are not just another tree & garden company.

    We are thinking about the future and planning for the long term. With evidence of climate change happening all around us, some of us are giving bit more consideration to the vegetation we choose and how to manage it for the long term. We all know that a tree should be suited to its location. These days though, it’s not that simple. By planning our vegetation to be resilient to watering restrictions, to create wildlife habitat, or to reduce the impacts of wildfire, we are adapting to climate change, and making decisions that will conserve water, wildlife, and other services that trees provide, such as shade and carbon sequestration.
