One Company for All of Your Tree Service Needs
Shopping around for tree care, it can be hard to find a company that does everything. Most people leave their tree care to their landscaping company. But, this isn’t usually a good idea. Landscaping companies aren’t required to train or prove their credentials before offering you tree care. As a result, avoidable damage is done to your trees.
Instead, consider hiring a tree company that handles everything that is necessary for good tree care. Our qualified teams are skilled in tree health from proper nutritional care to safe trimming practices. A tree service is more than just a tree cutting service. Thompson Rivers Tree Service is ready to show you the difference that professional tree service can make.
What is an Arborist?
The distinction of “arborist” is what sets a tree care service apart from a landscaping company. An arborist is a professional designation that shows that the title-holder is trained and tested in the skills necessary to safely diagnose, treat and work on trees. To obtain the title of arborist, an applicant must prove that they have worked in the field of tree care for at least three years and obtain formal education in the subject of horticulture. Once these requirements have been met, an applicant will pass a test and be awarded the certification of “arborist” from the International Society of Arboriculture.
Thompson Rivers Tree Service is led by a certified arborist that has experience working in multiple regions around Kamloops. As such, we are qualified and committed to giving the best tree care that is available. From dealing with diseased trees to safe tree removal, we have the knowledge and experience to help your trees thrive.
Our Tree Removal Process
Tree removal is a dangerous job that requires skills and special equipment to accomplish. Work must be performed high up in the canopy of trees and cuttings must be safely brought to the ground without damaging people or structures below.
At Thompson Rivers Tree Service, our crew maintain the highest levels of safety. We use specialized equipment that allows us to reach higher than a typical tree service and as a result, perform jobs more safely. When our crews go to work, you can expect that your trees will be removed quickly and safely
What’s the Difference Between Tree Trimming and Tree Pruning
Tree pruning and trimming refer to the process of removing unwanted material from a tree. The difference is in the goal of the procedure. The goal of tree pruning is to encourage the tree or shrub to grow in a healthy and pleasing shape and to encourage flowering or fruiting. Trimming on the other hand is a preventative process that removes limbs that threaten to damage power lines or structures.
Timing is important when it comes to tree trimming and pruning. Pruning is usually done when the trees are dormant to prevent the risk of damage. Trimming can be done at any time but precautions should be taken if the tree is actively growing. Getting help from the experts at Thompson Rivers Tree Service can help you navigate the process more easily and ensure that your trees stay healthy.
Why is Stump Grinding and Removal Necessary?
After trees are removed, whether by you or our tree removal crews, stumps will be leftover. Removing a stump promptly after taking out a tree will prevent the stump from trying to regrow or slowly rotting away over the course of many years. The benefits of stump removal are:
- Prevents fungal growth
- Prevents insect infestation
- Removes eyesore of a rotting stump
- Allows for replanting
- Stops the spread of disease
Once a tree is removed, our crews can decide whether stump removal or grinding is the appropriate action. Once the stump is gone, you have a blank slate to start over with.
When Do You Need Emergency Tree Service
At Thompson Rivers Tree Service, we spend our weeks performing tree service during normal business hours. However, we know that emergencies rarely happen at convenient times. We keep our crews on call to respond to emergencies at all hours of the night and on weekends. Some reasons why you may need to call for emergency help are:
- Fallen trees damaged a home or business
- Limbs or debris blocking driveways or roadways
- Trees encroaching on power lines
- Unbalanced trees threatened to tip over
When disaster strikes our crews will be ready to help. We are ready to go to work on short notice to help restore normalcy when the worst happens.

Since trees add value to a property, it makes sense to save mature trees. When you hire us for lot clearing, we add our personal attention to meet your needs every step of the way.
