FAQs

Hiring someone to care for your trees is a sound investment. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns.

Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Those trained and equipped to work safely with trees should only do tree work. We are a TRUSTED LOCAL BUSINESS and are fully insured and covered under WSIB.

What trees should be fertilized?
All deciduous and coniferous trees are fertilized annually in the forest, when they drop their leaves and needles. A thick blanket of fallen leaves provides a constant supply of nutrients to a tree for the next several months. In an urban setting, we remove fallen leaves, and we plant grass and shrubbery that compete with the tree for nutrition. Proper fertilization for urban trees mimics the natural process by which forest trees receive their nutrition.

When is a good time to prune my tree?
It depends on the type of tree, time of year and what your objectives are. Most trees can be pruned year round if you do not take into account flowering and fruit production. Flowering trees that will need some kind of canopy reduction should be pruned after they flower. Pruning prior to flowering will reduce flowering and fruit production.

Do I need approval to remove or prune trees?
We have a great relationship with the cities and towns that we work. As requirements may vary, you should check with your local council, or call us, as we are happy to advise you and help with the necessary paperwork if any.

How can I help make sure the job is done safely?
To make sure that people remain outside of the danger areas identified by Storybook is a shared responsibility. Failure to follow our instructions could result in injury to yourself or tree workers. We will check for hazards prior to commencing work. If however you are aware of any dangers on your property that could cause harm, you should advise Storybook. This could be that there is an underground tank, underground services such as gas, electricity or plumbing near the trees.
