Tree work is difficult at the best of times. It is performed outside, in all kind of weather. We lift heavy loads, with uncertain footing. It is seasonal, and weather dependent. We deal with dogs, neighbours, physics, insurance companies, and all the challenges of small business ownership! So why the heck would we choose toContinue reading “Why we are arborists”

Why does my tree look like that?!
Trees are like us.
Saying goodbye to one of my favourite trees
Tiny man or giant stump? Oh dear poplar – you fell over so majestically. And we just got to prune this year! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Reta and Chris (@beeeztree)
Smoky nights and hot days!
I remain positive and enthusiastic all the time, even in the face of adversity. I am excited at 6am when we get to drive trucks and run heavy equipment. I can summon a dizzying hustle at the end of the day, even if there is a huge pile of logs standing in my way ofContinue reading “Smoky nights and hot days!”
I recently was contacted by a previous customer, where we had done work at their place of business. They needed us at their home. I could not have guessed that I was in for such a treat! They have a giant two-story ficus tree. Words nearly escaped me. Things we learned – ficus tress dripContinue reading “Pruning inside!?!?”
What makes us different
When we started Bee EZ Tree Service six years ago, we would often ask ourselves, “What makes us different from other tree services in Brandon?” I would usually come up with ninja air slicing, and declare that we would be the best chain saw tree surgeons ever (which we are). But over and over again,Continue reading “What makes us different”
Has spring sprung?
I find the older I get, the more opportunity I have to make the same jokes that I make every year. It feels like both a badge of honour and a recognition of the march of time. We always planted the garden on May long when I was a kid. Chris and I tried onceContinue reading “Has spring sprung?”
Once a year or so, Vermeer Winnipeg puts on a day of continuing education for arborists. It’s usually brutally cold, really fun, and very informative (they also provide lunch!) I (Reta) have not been able to come for the last few years – Vermeer skipped a year when they were changing locations, and I’ve beenContinue reading “Industry Trends”
Renovations in the yard
While we are cozy behind windows, and underneath blankets, is a great time to dream about how we want to change our yards next spring. It is an excellent time to assess the shape, growth, and some aspects of the health of trees – when they are naked without leaves! We like to ask whatContinue reading “Renovations in the yard”
Several times this summer, folks have told me how they should have taken care of this tree five years ago. Or they apologize for how overgrown something is. Basically, something is not the way they want it (tree, hedge etc) and it has been that way for a while. One lady told that she hadContinue reading “Life happens”
