Tree Removal in Edmonton and Nearby Areas
More Trees Please provides trusted tree removal services in Edmonton and nearby areas. There are many reasons to consider removing a tree, such as safety, aesthetics, or even environmental reasons. Trees are alive, and like every living organism, they continue to grow, can become sick, and eventually die. When a tree is growing too close to power lines or any structure, contracts a disease, or begins to decay, it can pose a hazardous risk to your family, property, and even surrounding infrastructure. When this happens, the only option is to have the tree removed. Tree removal should not be looked at as a weekend DIY project. To be appropriately executed, removal requires specialized equipment and expert knowledge. Instead of risking harm to yourself, like a serious fall or injury, it is safer to depend on our fully licensed and insured arborists to get the job done. Stump grinding and removal allow for a replant in the future, prevent mower damage, and remove the liability of tripping/injury.
Whether you require professional arborists in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, St. Albert Leduc or Beaumont, More Trees Please has the experienced staff and expert equipment to get the job done.
How much does it cost to move a tree?
You have likely invested a lot of time and effort in your landscaping project and each tree-transporting project is unique. We will discuss all the options regarding pricing with you and let you make the final decision. Remember that when it comes to healthy beautiful trees, cheapest isn’t always best. We want you to be able to enjoy your trees as soon as they are planted and for generations to come.
- Before you call us, contact Alberta One-Call. We cannot dig out a root ball without knowing what electrical infrastructure and piping exist around it.

- We sign a Service Agreement to ensure everyone is on the same page about the job. *Some jobs require a deposit

What size of tree can you move?
We have one of the largest tree spades in the industry and can move almost any tree. The height of the tree will be proportional to the caliper, size and species. We have equipment to make sure the branches of your large trees will not be harmed. Along with our 90 inch tree spade we have a 48 inch and, 38 inch spades as well. Our small excavator can fit through your garden gate so we can accommodate back yard planting with no damage to your yard.
We Do Our Best to Preserve Your Existing Landscaping.
We are not finishing landscapers, and sometimes, because we require large, heavy equipment to do a job, existing landscaping can be damaged during tree removal or tree transplanting. Depending on weather conditions, soil type and equipment type, there is sometimes some collateral damage. BUT, we do our best to make it look like we were never there.
To Keep Things Economical for Everyone, We Believe in Give and Take.
We do our best to be on-site on time and give you a window of time when we will show up. The reason we do this? To keep costs down for you! Because it costs money to travel with our equipment (it’s big and wide and slow) we work on an on-call basis, and we have to finish jobs in the queue before you.
We also work in an industry where there are sometimes unforeseen circumstances—for example, weather changes, big boulders underground that won’t let our shovel go any farther—and we appreciate your flexibility and understanding. We work as fast as conditions allow us, but doing the job right is our priority.

How to Prepare a Tree for Transplanting?
Water Is Key.
Tree health and survival is our main priority. Although watering before transport causes a heavier root ball, this step also means less stress to the tree during transportation.
How to Care for a Transplanted Tree?
After the tree is planted, we instruct you on how to take care of the tree so it is in the best health. We can do mulch delivery and soil delivery if required. But aftercare is up to you. (Or we can come water it for you, for a price, wink, wink.)
