Mountain Pine Beetle

1. Survey and Evaluate: Determine the number and species of trees, any possible infestation and the number of trees that may be susceptible to infestation. 2. Preventative Spraying/ removal of infected trees. 3. Eradication: Fire mitigation and thinning the tree count can decrease competition for nutrients between trees. Pruning lower dead and dying branches can greatly increase a tree's health, as can clearing the surrounding forest floor. (Some biomass is beneficial, but too much can be harmful to the trees.) 4.

Dormant Oil Spraying

Minimize usage of those nasty pesticides and take advantage of Dormant Spraying. Dormant spraying refers to spraying during the season of the year when deciduous trees and shrubs are leafless, and buds are in the overwintering, dormant condition. Materials applied as dormant sprays include horticulturals oils (dormant oil) and lime sulphur. Horticultural oils mix with water to form a milky emulsion. After the water evaporates, a thin layer of oil is left on the tree. Any overwintering stages of insects such as eggs or pupae, when sprayed with dormant oil, will suffocate. Some examples of these insects are scales, mites, aphids and eggs of moths, such as leafrollers. We will begin spraying in March 2014 prior to buds swelling.

Technical Tree Removal- Lake Louise Alberta

speedline removalGreen Leaf was recently commissioned by Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts to remove an uprooted spruce tree with extensive decay which threatened to fall onto a propane tank and delivery system. With no room below the tree to place any pieces our skilled climber employed a speedline rigging system to safely lower all limbs and wood to a landing zone away from the propane tank. Technical removals like this are our specialty! We are trained and certified to deal with such hazards in confined spaces.

Tree Removal at Panorama Mountain Resort- Invermere BC

Green Leaf was commissioned to remove a large Spruce tree at Panorama resort back in 2009. A roof had been built around the tree and therefore there was no room for material to fall and very little margin for error. We safely rigged the tree down in sections and removed all debris from site with no damage to the customers home or property. A precision removal.
