ARBORIST REPORTS FOR PRIVATE TREE REMOVAL

An Arborist Report is usually required for a tree removal permit by City of Toronto Urban Forestry and other municipal Urban Forestry Authorities in the GTA.  A Certified Arborist at Cohen and Master will assess the condition of your tree and produce a professional arborist report that can be submitted to the city to receive a tree removal permit.

As part of the process, we will provide recommendations for tree replanting and tree species selection, with trees that have been pre-approved by the city and are appropriate for your specific site conditions.

Our staff will take care of the entire permit process for you and inform you if/when the permit is approved, and schedule a date for removal.
