THE MARILYN SHOW
Tait Sala from Cohen and Master Tree & Shrub Services on The Marilyn Show, discusses removing unwanted trees and replacing them with better tree species when undergoing yard remodeling.
Tait discusses preventative measures against tree damage during Toronto’s deep freeze winter.
DIRTY BUSINESS TV SHOW FEATURE
Cohen and Master on Dirty Business Cohen & Master have been featured on several episodes of the television show Dirty Business. During their appearances CMtrees were required to remove an old and dangerous tree. The home redevelopers required that the old tree was to be removed before a new one was planted. As the tree was over 30cm diameter measured from 1.4 metres above ground level a permit was needed for removal as required by Toronto Tree By laws. Cohen and Master later appeared performing a tree trimming service to the home redevelopers so the house could receive more sun light during the winter. The size of the tree being trimmed required an Arborist to perform the trimming.
SARAH’S ORCHARD TV SHOW FEATURE
Television Feature on Sarah’s House Cohen and Master appeared on the TV show Sarah’s House. This show gives viewers step by step tips on cheap and effective house renovations. Cohen and Master were called in to trim the large orchard that was in the backyard of the renovated house. Cohen and Master informed Sarah that it would be more expensive to replace the health declining orchard than it was to perform a simple tree trimming to spark the growth back into the tree. It just goes to show how important tree maintenance really is.
WEIR IN THE WORLD… TREE PLANTING FEATURE
Weir in the World… Tree Planting Cohen and Master invited Wilder Weir to spend time with them planting a tree in a suburbian backyard in Toronto. It’s important to keep planting trees in an urban environment because trees are essential for a healthy city. Trees absorb cardbon dioxide, reduce heat, help control storm water run-off and they provide oxygen. Furthermore, trees have a hard time living in the city due to poor soil, construction and concrete, so it’s important that Cohen and Master plant as many trees for Toronto as they can so that we have a canopy. Between 2004 and 2009 Toronto planted half a million trees. Weir assisted in planting a small Tulip tree. Tulip trees give a nice yellow flower in the spring, and can grow up to be 70 feet high. First they lifted the tree out of the truck via an aerial lift, then Weir locates the root hole, measures the size of the root, and starts digging. It was great to meet Weir and show him the importance of planting trees.
Tait discusses how long term care like tree pruning and preventative maintenance contributes to overall health of urban trees in Toronto.
