In cities, having access to green spaces is essential. Those green spaces need to be maintained so they can be enjoyed for decades to come. We were fortunate enough to work on this incredible project maintaining and caring for the plants on this condo terrace. With proper pruning, plant health care and strategic planting, we can make sure to make the most of our green spaces.
The Cohen & Master team shows how to uproot and replant a Japanese Maple tree. Past methods have required the use of large tree spades to dig out the roots. Our method uses compressed air to gently and safely clear the dirt away while maintaining as much of the root system as possible. This is a good solution if you’re doing construction but want to preserve your existing, small-species trees.
AERATION TUBES & URBAN SOILS
We know that urban soils suffer from two issues: 1. Compacted soil 2. Limited surface area and soil volume We need to fix these issues in urban soils in order to give roots what they need to grow healthy, strong urban plants! Aeration Tubes are a device that fixes urban soils by delivering oxygen and water to roots.

Watch step by step how Cohen and Master remove this tree from a suburban Toronto home. Tree removal is often performed when the tree becomes hazardous as a result of structural problems from disease or lack of maintenance. All branches and wood materials are safely removed using advanced rigging techniques and cranes. The safety aspect of this procedure is very important to Cohen and Master. This is to ensure no damage is caused to the house or landscape during the tree removal so you can expect the best tree service in Toronto.
