Below are recent comments from our local Hamilton, Burlington, Ancaster, Stoney Creek customers taken from reviews and reviews.

Gavin was very responsive and professional. His crew did a great job and excellent clean up of two storm damaged trees.

Lorraine D.

Had Gavin and his crew cut down dead ash tree from back yard and pruned a 20 year old silver maple. They did a wonderful job, would not believe they were even here the clean up and removal was excellent . Would use them again and recommend their service.

Patti H.

Had Gavin and his crew over to my house in Hamilton to trim several trees and completely remove a few. They showed up on time and were done on time and did clean, professional job, for a reasonable price. In my case, the neighbours wanted to weigh-in on what was being cut. I liked it that Gavin was ok with making several decisions on-the-spot as to some of the limbs that were being removed. I would hire them again.

Ian S.

My Husband and I had Gavin and his crew come and remove a large tree from out front yard and they did great work, no damage and cleaned everything up and best of all done in one day. We have no complaints nor do our neighbours. Very personable and great price!

Marci S.

Gavin and Dennis cut down a big dead pine tree and did an excellent job. It was easy and fast to obtain a quote remotely as we spoke on the phone and the quote with a fair price was emailed to me after a few days. During the job, when Gavin noticed that the tree is used to hold up a wobbly fence at the back, he graciously suggested and helped leave a bit of the tree trunk and nail it to the fence. The clean-up was very thorough and the back yard looked neater than before! It was a pleasure to work with Gavin as he went above and beyond to get the job done well. I would definitely recommend Gavin's service!

Helen H.

Gavin and his crew were great! I called when the big tree in our yard fell over and he was there the next day to remove it. The job was made tougher because the stump had also come out of the ground so it took some time to break it down. They (2 of them) got the entire job completed in a day and cleaned everything up afterwards as well (not easy with a very cold day and snow on the ground)! I would definitely recommend him and I'm pretty sure I may need to call him in the future to deal with some other large trees on our property.

Gavin and his crew were fantastic! It is so rare to meet such a warm personality and someone who takes pride in their work. Unlike most of my experiences with various contractors, I did not have to point anything out, argue about contracts, or micro manage the project. Gavin and his crew did everything that was discussed and went above and beyond that! I am so impressed and would highly recommend him!

Alexandra G.

Gavin and his crew were extremely professional and managed an awkward tree removal (2.5 story tall Maple tree, with four independent trunks) overhanging the neighbour&aposs yard. Also had to grid the stump. He did a great job, worked efficiently and did a great clean up also. I recommended him to my neighbours and he did a great job for them as well. Priced extremely competitively.

Bernard Z from Hamilton

Gavin & his crew not only did a fantastic job of removing 2 large pine trees they went above and beyond in making sure everything was cleaned up. We were also impressed with their great positive attitude in solving a couple of problems. We would highly recommend Gavin & Urban Canopy Tree Service

Quinner in Burlington

I was super impressed with Gavin and his crew as they carefully pruned back my Manitoba Maple. He was upfront about the cost, and surgically precise about which limbs to leave and which ones to trim back to give my tree a new lease on life. Thank you so much Gavin!

Leanne in Dundas

Over a span of 6 months, the largest tree removal co. in the Hamilton area changed their opinion along with a huge increase in cost about the removal of an 80' tree in my backyard. I called Gavin and the next day he promptly accessed the tree and gave a very fair estimate. The tree was removed the next week. His team was very professional and courteous. My backyard was left in great condition (including flower gardens). A very stress free experience! I'll call Gavin first the next time a tree needs to be removed.

Bill in Stoney Creek

Gavin was quick to respond to my request for an estimate for tree removal and I heard back within a day (email) with a fair quote. I appreciated I did not have to take time off work to meet with him, and he worked well with email and phone discussions before the job was finalized. He left the backyard in great condition after, and we were very pleased with the results! We would absolutely recommend him and we're happy to support a local company!

Sarah B in Hamilton

I contacted Gavin from another recommendation promoting his service. Not only did he deliver on that recommendation but that prompted me to write this review. He took down a Maple that grew at an angle and was over two separate houses. He was very professional, there on time, and cleaned up afterwards. I would highly recommend him !

Private user

I had a ash tree that urban canopy took care of Gavin Terry and Brian were amazing my situation was in ground pool on one side and a bevy of hydro telephone and cable etc. wires that had to be dealt with and this crew killed it . I would recommend this crew to anyone who wants the job done right and at a fair price thanks again to the crew good to know you for the day hope you liked the music.

Mark from Hamilton

I called Gavin to remove an old tree in my backyard. He has a creative team, very professional, friendly. On top of everything that you would like to see from a contractor, they provide competitive rates. Definitely I would recommend Urban Canopy to anyone and will call them again when I have another project.

Jenny from Hamilton

The guys are cutting my tree as I write. They are professional, meticulous and safe. I had seen them at work on my neighbour's property and that is why I used them. I would recommend Gavin and his company to anyone.


Great, courteous service. We had a large tree greatly damaged during the recent ice storm. We contacted Urban Canopy to remove the tree. They gave us a fair quote - and they came several days later and did a super, professional job removing the tree and all the debris. I highly recommend this company to anyone who needs a tree removed.

Joe P.

Gavin removed a very large tree between our house and garage. His work ethic was top notch, he planed and calculated every cut so that there was no damage and branches were very safely lowered. He did the work in a timely manner and he cleaned up was great. We had 4 other large companies look at the tree and said it was too big for them to remove. But Gavin was up for the challenge and did an amazing job. We would recommend him to any one looking for a job well done. He is professional and polite. Next time we need a tree removed we will only be calling Gavin.

Gail from Hamilton

We have used other tree services in past; none compare to the quality services Gavin provided. He went above and beyond in the service he provided. Any time we need tree service we will be calling Urban Canopy.

Scott from Burlington

Gavin and Joe removed two trees in my front yard couple weeks ago with the root grinding service. They did a fantastic job with a competitive rate! I would definitely use him again in the future!

Ying from Etobicoke

Gavin & Joe removed 8 Trees in a very difficult area and also pruned another and removed 2 stumps.. Very professional workmanship and great clean up job. I was very impressed. I would not hesitate to hire them again and refer them to others.
