Extremely Impressed
“Extremely impressed. Very professional, friendly and did an amazing job. Would highly recommend Tomahawk Tree Service Ltd. Have used other companies but Tomahawk Tree Service Ltd. was no doubt the best by far in all regards.”
- Jennifer P.

Reliable and Honest
“Professional, reliable and honest service. We required dangerous tree pruning around the main hydro lines and removal of a tree growing into the foundation of our house. Tomahawk Tree Service Ltd. came out and assessed the required work and gave their word with a handshake. Their price was competitive and far less than some of the other highly advertised tree service companies. The staff were competent and considerate and cleaned up our yard and any debris in the neighbour’s yard. The company has top equipment to reach large trees in difficult locations. I would highly recommend this company.”
- Mark H.

Professional and Friendly
“We needed to have two large trees removed and two others trimmed back. We contacted Aaron at Tomahawk Tree Service Ltd. who visited us promptly to give an estimate. His crew (Rafael, Peter, Brody, Brian and Spencer) arrived first thing this morning as scheduled. They were very professional, competent and friendly. It was amazing to see their skill and awareness in lowering the large tree branches to the ground, and cutting down the trunks without damaging any of the surrounding areas or plants. Their cleanup was meticulous. We were very pleased with their work, and would not hesitate to recommend them highly.”
- Jane S. and Doug H.
