CBL Workers are trained and certified through Arboriculture Canada, a well-known arborist school dedicated to ensuring proper practices and competency in arborist work. CBL adheres to the practices taught by Arboriculture, which ensures minimal damage is done to your tree and surrounding environment. Our goal is to help the environment, and as a result of this dedication, only the most ethical and minimally invasive procedures are used to get the job done.

It depends on a number of factors, including the size and type of your tree, and the municipality where you live. Most cities/muncipalities, including Toronto, the various municipalities in the GTA, and Peterborough, have their own set of by-laws governing tree work and/or removal aimed at sustaining the urban forest.
We have links below to various municipality websites and their specific tree work by-laws, where you can determine whether or not your job will require a permit. If your municipality is not listed below, you can usually find the by-laws by calling the Parks, Forestry, and Recreation department of your municipality.

If you live in Toronto, the City requires a complete arborist report for applications for permits to remove or injure trees of any diameter of 30 cm or more. CBL arborists provide full arborist reports to streamline all of your tree permit requirements. Contact us to schedule an appointment!
