A professional ISA-Certified Arborist like C & D Excavating and Tree Service can determine the type of pruning necessary to improve the health, appearance and safety of your trees. We provide tree care services in Cornwall and surrounding areas from a highly-trained crew that utilizes all the required safety equipment.

Things to look for when hiring an ISA Certified Arborist:

  • Certification through ISA Certified program and security clearance certificates.

  • Liability insurance and workers compensation coverage on all employees.

  • 1st aid, CPR and WHMIS training.

  • Aerial rescue and emergency response.

  • Certification for equipment being used for jobs: cranes, aerial devices, etc.

Helpful references:

Depending on where you live, you will need to contact Ottawa Hydro or Hydro One to obtain line clearance for the safety of workers (10’ required clearance from primary lines).


Ottawa Hydro: 613-738-6400 - option 4 – HydroOttawa.com

Hydro One: 1-800-434-1235 (for Emergencies) – HydroOne.com


Obtaining proper permits such as City of Ottawa Distinctive Tree Permit, road encroachment and closure permits if needed (extra charges apply).


Traffic control following Book 7 for the safety of workers and pedestrians.


Avoid companies that top trees (this practice has been proven to decline trees for over 20 years yet is still a problem today).


Avoid companies knocking door to door as well established companies are busy enough that this is not needed.


Avoid hiring companies that don't have their workers and only sub contract your work to smaller companies with inadequate insurance coverages. These types of companies are often more expensive because they are simply adding a finder’s fee of 20% – 40%. If a major accident happens, you could be surprised by the outcome.


Make sure all wood related material is diverted from the landfill site and properly recycled.

Tree Trimming and Pruning

Keep your residential or commercial property in great form and health with tree care services in Cornwall and the surrounding areas. C & D Excavating and Tree Service trims trees to improve the curb appeal and security of your home or business. We check your trees for disease and damage and save any tree we can with our professional care. If the tree can’t be restored, C & D Excavating and Tree Service can perform complete hazardous tree and stump removal.


We are proud of our tree care and maintenance services, especially tree pruning and tree trimming. Our tree workers take their tree care responsibilities seriously, treating every tree pruning progress with the utmost attention and care. Our top priority is customer satisfaction, and we handle each project as if we are caring for our lawn.

Stump Removal and Grinding

Stump removal is as necessary as tree removal. Stumps and large roots that remain behind after a tree is removed can be unsightly and hazardous. Stumps can also be a source for unwanted pests, such as carpenter ants or termites. C & D Excavating and Tree Service can help you avoid all these troubles by grinding these unwanted stumps or roots in Cornwall and surrounding areas. 


We usually leave the excess debris to be used as mulch, but it can be removed upon request. We can add topsoil to replace the stump debris and seed the area with grass if required. Talk to us about what you would like to do with the site once the stump has been ground.

Tree Cabling and Bracing

Cabling and bracing stabilize the trees and protect your property from any damage during a storm or strong winds. We help you take proactive measures to maintain the excellent health and structural integrity of the trees on your property. 


Bracing is required to provide added support to tree branches. It helps in redistributing structural stress on weaker branches and limits the movement of branches during extreme weather conditions. Further, cabling stabilizes a weak or split crotch. You should take care of the following things regarding tree cabling:

  • Get your trees pruned before the hardware is installed.

  • Cables should not pull limbs together.

  • Do not cable the trees that have energized lines passing through them.

Utility Lines and Safety

If your trees have grown over your utility lines, damage can happen to both the lines and tree branches. In bad weather, you run the risk of losing service because of fallen limbs. Avoid trouble before it happens if you have limbs hanging over your utility lines. Certified in electrical line clearing, C & D Excavating and Tree Service prunes your trees safely and attractively.
