About us

Community tree care since 1990

Arbutus Tree Service Ltd. is a high quality local company that’s served the West side for more than 30 years. We have an extensive list of referrals from clients on the West Side of Vancouver, and all of our work is fully guaranteed. Our service area includes Kerrisdale, Dunbar, Southlands, Point Grey and UBC.

Certified Arborists

All Arbutus staff are ISA Certified Arborists or in the ISA Certification Program. For your protection, we carry the highest insurance coverage in the industry and are pleased to provide you with verification of both our insurance and WCB coverage.

High quality, environmentally-friendly tree care

All tree pruning done by Arbutus meets or exceeds ANSI (American National Standards Institute) A300 Standards, and we use the latest environmentally friendly techniques, like spurless climbing equipment and organic materials.

Value-added tree services

What’s a value-added tree service at Arbutus Tree Service? Some examples:
• When we remove a tree, we offer the services of bucking, splitting and stacking it for your firewood.
• We provide wood chips for the base of your trees and hedges, as they’re much healthier than bark mulch, delivering natural nutrition and promoting water retention.
• We offer you a free consultation with an ISA Certified Arborist who will advise you about the health, safety and care of your trees.

Expertise with large trees and high trees

Large trees and high trees require advanced training and different techniques and equipment than smaller trees. Many tree services aren’t adequately equipped or experienced to handle this type of work. In fact, other companies often call us in to handle all their large tree work.
