State-of-the-Art Technology and Processes

At Green Drop, tree care transcends routine. Our arborists have transformed it into an art form powered by cutting-edge technology and innovative techniques.

We employ advanced diagnostic tools that allow for precise assessments of tree health, detecting potential issues before they become visible problems. Our use of aerial drones for canopy analysis and soil sensors to monitor moisture and nutrient levels ensures a comprehensive understanding of your trees' exact needs.

Beyond visual inspections, our arborists use state-of-the-art tools, including the resistograph—a micro-drill machine that inserts a long, thin needle into the wood to assess the tree’s density, which helps identify areas of compromised structural integrity, such as decay.

Customized Care for Every Tree

No two trees or landscapes are alike. We pride ourselves on a service approach that’s as unique as your yard.

Our team of certified arborists doesn't apply a one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, we assess each tree and its surrounding environment to create a personalized care plan. This might involve selective pruning to enhance a tree’s structural integrity, custom-blended fertilizers to address specific nutritional deficiencies, or strategic planting advice to optimize light exposure and growth potential.

Whether it’s the majestic oak that’s stood in your backyard for decades or the newly planted row of maples lining your business park, we ensure that every tree receives exactly what it needs to flourish.

Our Superb Team of Arborists

Green Drop team with numerous ISA certified arborists

Our team of highly qualified arborists is the beating heart of our service. We have:

  • The Largest Number of ISA Certified Arborists in a Single Company. With 21 ISA-certified arborists, we have the largest team in a single company. The ISA certification is recognized internationally and requires arborists to pass rigorous exams on all aspects of tree care, ensuring they are proficient in the latest technology and techniques.
  • Two BCMA-Certified Team Members. The Board Certified Master Arborist (BCMA) credential represents the pinnacle of professional achievement in the arboriculture field. And we are proud to have 2 of them at Green Drop. BCMA certification requires extensive experience and knowledge, and these professionals are thought leaders in the industry.
  • Nine arborists with ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualification. They’re trained to perform tree risk assessments systematically and identify potential tree hazards.

So why do these credentials matter to you? Our certified arborists bring a deep understanding of tree biology, physiology, and the complex interactions within tree ecosystems. This knowledge allows us to make informed decisions that promote the health and longevity of your trees.

Full Spectrum of Arboriculture Services Under One Roof

When you hire us for tree care, you get all the services in one place. You don’t need to reach out to one company for pruning and another for advanced tree health assessment. Here’s everything we offer:

  • Plant Health Consultation & Diagnosis: In-depth health assessments to detect any issues and devise precise treatment plans.
  • RootBoost: This signature service delivers essential nutrients directly to the roots, promoting growth and robust health throughout the year.
  • Pruning and Trimming: Proper pruning isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s vital for the health and safety of the trees. On the other hand, you might need trimming to maintain the shape of your tree.
  • Tree and Root Removal: Whether it’s for aesthetic reasons, safety concerns, or tree health, sometimes a tree needs to be removed. Our team handles this task with the utmost professionalism, ensuring minimal impact on your property and the surrounding landscape.
  • Stump Grinding and Removal: Our highly trained arborists use state-of-the-art equipment to get rid of unsightly stumps and take care of cleanups afterward.
  • Emergency Tree Care: When storms or accidents damage trees, quick action can prevent further damage and potential hazards. Our emergency tree services are available to address urgent tree care needs.
  • Municipal Tree Care: This involves pest & disease management, Dutch Elm Disease management, contract preparation & supervision, tree inventory management & forest surveys, and urban forestry planning.
  • Tree Appraisal: We evaluate trees using industry-accepted standards. This helps municipalities understand the value of their urban forest and allocate resources for its management. Additionally, this service helps residents appreciate the value of their trees.

Advanced Diagnostic and Treatment Facilities

We’re equipped with a state-of-the-art Plant Disease Diagnostic Laboratory. The lab employs cutting-edge technologies and methodologies to examine samples and pinpoint the specific pathogens or nutritional deficiencies affecting trees. By identifying the exact cause of illness, our team ensures that treatments are scientifically tailored to address the root of the problem.

The diagnostic lab enables our arborists to:

  • Quickly respond to disease outbreaks like DED, reducing the spread and impact of infections.
  • Tailor treatments that are effective and efficient.
  • Monitor the progress of the treatment over time, adjusting strategies as needed.

Commitment to the Environment

We’re all about sustainability. We use safe and eco-friendly practices to keep your trees—and our planet—healthy and thriving. This philosophy is embedded in every aspect of our operations, ensuring that we not only care for trees but also for the ecosystems they inhabit.

Choosing Green Drop means choosing a greener future for everyone.

We Love Working with the Community

Here is some of our work:

  • We believe in giving back to the community in the best way we know how. We’ve planted over 4000 Caliper trees in Winnipeg to add to the urban canopy and contribute to the community’s green infrastructure. Each planting was carefully planned to ensure the right tree goes in the right place, considering future growth, aesthetics, and ecological benefits.
  • We also worked with local bodies like the Wolseley Residents' Association and Trees Winnipeg to educate the community on planting trees and protecting our Elms from Dutch Elm Disease. In addition, we planted more trees and hosted injection workshops.
  • Hosting "Ask An Arborist” events with tree planting workshops, and fun community games, all the while educating people on ways they can make a ‘green’ difference.
  • Collaborating with Trees Riverview, Friends of Fisher Park, and Trees Winnipeg to make a difference by protecting Winnipeg's Elm canopy.
