Tree Services Calgary and Edmonton
Tree pruning, trimming, and other tree care services are essential if you’re looking for healthy growth and a fine, manicured appearance to your garden.
Trees, hedges, and shrubs are busy growing right until winter sets in so they demand your attention or they can start to look a little out-of-control.
Besides that, city bylaws in Calgary and Edmonton make it a requirement for property owners to look after their trees for both aesthetic and safety purposes.
If all that sounds like hard work, you’re right – it can be.
However, at Yardworx we have a crew that specializes in tree services.
Our certified arborists have the expertise to ensure that properties around Calgary and Edmonton are in shape with their tree care standards.
Why is it important to take care of your trees?
Apart from the aesthetics and promoting healthy growth, there is a responsibility for property owners to take care of their trees in both Calgary and Edmonton.

The City bylaws are important. However, even without these, the natural pride that comes from a well-kept garden means that regular pruning and trimming of trees, shrubs, and hedges are essential.
The fall and throughout the winter are great times to attend to your trees so that when the growing seasons come round again, they are in the best of health and ready to go. However, tree trimming and pruning may also be performed throughout the spring and summer, if necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions
Hedges should generally be pruned in late winter when they are dormant and have not produced buds.
Trimming can be performed several times throughout the year to promote healthy growth
Trees need pruning to help maintain their growth, structure, and integrity and to ensure they receive an adequate supply of sunlight and air.
Without pruning, they may be more susceptible to broken limbs and falling branches (putting people and other plants at risk) and the spread of disease.
In short, pruning trees helps them reach their full potential and live a long life.
Trees are a little like humans – they require personalized treatment depending on how they’re designed!
Elms can only be pruned between October 1 to March 31. This is important because of Dutch elm disease, which had not been seen in Alberta for over 20 years until recently.
We take this disease seriously. After reports of trees in Lethbridge testing positive for Dutch elm disease, it is even more important that residents of Calgary and Edmonton keep within guidelines and protect our beautiful trees.
This is also a great time to prune flowering or fruiting trees, and even shrubs like lilacs, etc.
Pruning while growth is dormant encourages new growth when the weather turns warmer and the lack of leaves also makes it easy to identify branches and limbs requiring removal.
If your hedges need a heavy trim (taken down by a quarter or more) this could be done at the same time.
Maples, however, are best pruned in late summer and into the fall or winter.
In summer, pruning is still sometimes possible but younger trees may experience greater stress due to the heat and other elements.
Both trimming and pruning lead to healthier, better-looking trees, shrubs and hedges.
Growth should be uniform with the dead or dying branches trimmed back at least once or twice a year – more in the case of some species.
Trimming is a term usually used for shrubs, hedges, and small trees under six feet tall. Think of it as small-scale pruning, where we cut back branches to stimulate growth.
Tree pruning is a larger-scale operation carried out on trees over six feet tall. We remove loose limbs and, if necessary, reshape the tree.
