Complete Tree Care for Beautiful Trees in Winnipeg
When you’re ready to step up your tree game, Green Drop has the tools, expertise and experience to help you create the outdoor space of your dreams. With over 30 years of experience and over 50 full-time staff across our locations, we know all the top approaches to keep your outdoor spaces looking beautiful year-round.
Full Array of Tree Care Services
Green Drop could be your answer if you’ve been searching for a full-service tree care option and come up lacking. Instead of focusing on one particular service, we offer multiple services in one place.
We take care of everything, from scheduling to servicing, so all you need to do is sit back and relax in your beautiful outdoor space.
RootBoost is the perfect solution for trees that need a boost of nutrients to keep them healthy. It’s the ideal way to give your tree regular maintenance and make sure it stays strong through every season by promoting the following:
- Good root development.
- Stronger disease resistance.
- Readily available surplus nutrients to speed up new growth.
We carry out RootBoost treatments seasonally, usually in the fall. Our team will come to your home and inject liquid fertilizer around six inches beneath the soil's surface, an optimal spot for fertilizer since most tree root systems start between four and eight inches below ground.
You will benefit from thicker, brighter leaves, improved soil aeration, and increased protection from pests and disease.
It’s best to arrange a RootBoost treatment in time for Winnipeg’s cold season, which usually starts in November, so get in touch with the team at Green Drop for a free estimate to ensure your trees have the protection they need to get through winter.

Tree Pruning & Trimming
Regular pruning and trimming is the key to tree longevity, and that’s the primary focus of our expert arborists. We make your life easier by offering intentional pruning on young trees and structural pruning for mature trees to keep hazards at bay and your trees looking their best. We can also recommend trimming services when your trees just need a little touch-up to maintain their shape and size.
Our team follows ANSI A-300 Pruning Standards to keep trees and shrubs looking beautiful.
Why Is Tree Pruning Important?
- Your tree will grow in an ideal shape, encouraging new growth.
- Dead or dying branches will be removed, meaning energy is spent only on worthwhile branches, and disease is stopped from spreading.
- Branches that can fall and injure someone or damage your property will be removed.
Why Should You Trim Your Trees?
- Remove any excessive branches for better shape.
- More air flow around your trees.
- You’re able to better maintain the appearance of your trees.
- The size of your trees remain consistent.
Plant Health Consultation and Diagnosis Services
As the saying goes: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We believe this goes for your trees too! Our team offers thorough tree exams and in-depth knowledge to prevent pests and diseases through:
- Insect control – our team will help you develop a sustainable management program to prevent infestations and identify the best place to plant your trees to avoid insect activity.
- Disease control – we’ll look for signs of the many diseases affecting your trees and offer the most effective treatment options.
Dutch Elm Disease
DED is caused by a fungus that blocks a tree’s roots, which prevents it from accessing water and nutrients. Elm bark beetles spread the disease, carrying the sticky fungal spores from tree to tree. Between 2016 and 2021, Winnipeg lost an estimated 33,000 elm trees. The Green Drop team will look out for signs of DED, so you don’t have to.

Disposing of trees from your yard is a challenging and potentially dangerous process to undertake on your own. But you don’t have to go it alone with the Green Drop team. Each arborist receives special training to carry out tree removals safely and efficiently.
You can count on us to understand local regulations and handle city-owned trees appropriately, only carrying out a removal approved by the Urban Forestry Branch. Our arborists are certified with the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) and have received training with specialized equipment used in tree and shrub removals.
Stump Grinding & Removal
Whether you were left with a stump after a previous tree removal or lost a tree due to extreme weather, our stump grinding and removal team knows how to keep your yard looking its best.
We provide safe and efficient services with aerial trucks, climbers, and large-capacity wood chippers to remove every trace of tree stumps taking up precious space in your yard.
Some well-placed trees can make a massive difference in creating a diverse, exciting yard, but it can be challenging to know where to start.
When you work with the team here in Winnipeg, you’ll get access to a fully certified and insured team, our expert knowledge, and the best equipment as we help you decide which species to plant in ideal locations.

Municipal Tree Care
It’s a privilege to keep Winnipeg looking beautiful, ensuring the community can continue to enjoy the trees, shrubs, and plants in our great city.
Pest & Disease Control
Green Drop’s arborists use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies to control pests and keep city-owned trees healthy. These methods help us control insect pests, invasive plant species, or tree diseases in an ecologically-sound way. We mix an understanding of cultural growing practices with monitoring, threshold and lifecycle analysis, and chemical applications to provide the best solutions to manage any urban forest pest populations.
Community Forest Grant Agreement
Manitoba and the city of Winnipeg offer grants to boost greenery to the community’s tree canopy. These grants are awarded to help bring more tree life to our urban forests. Green Drop participates in this program to provide additional tree care to the city.
Dutch Elm Disease Management
Caused by an invasive member of the sac fungi family, this disease causes all species of Elm to wilt and eventually die. But Green Drop is dedicated to eradicating this disease wherever we can. We employ a variety of techniques for DED Management, including:
- Tree Removals
- Stump Removal
- Basal Treatment
- Arbotect DED prevention Injections
- Re-planting species selection, supply, installation, and maintenance. This guarantee ensures you have suitable trees for urban conditions while diversifying your trees.
Currently, we have several DED Management clients:
- City of Winnipeg, Manitoba
- Municipalities of East & West St Paul, Manitoba
- Municipality of St Clements
- Municipality of Ritchot
- We provide DED surveillance services to several individual communities in Saskatchewan.

Managing your urban forests should always begin with a tree inventory and assessment. Taking care of this proactively ensures that trees remain valuable to communities, cleaning the air, reducing water runoff, decreasing energy costs, and boosting property value.
The Green Drop Tree Care staff uses state-of-the-art equipment and tree management software to collect data for ground and DED surveys. Any data collected is then used to help you manage your public trees and plan for the future and can be delivered in any format for ease of use.
Our clients include provincial and federal governments, municipalities, the forest industry, cottage associations, and private landowners.
