I think I have been surprising people since the beginning (Right, Mom?!) It is a tough thing, to always be a surprise. Being the oldest in my family, and the first grandkid probably means that they were throwing stuff against the wall and seeing what stuck. I am often the tallest person, or the onlyContinue reading “International Women’s Day”

Why we are arborists
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”
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!”
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”
Renovations in the yard

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”
From our family to yours – may you enjoy all the warmth and joy that this season promises. And if that doesn’t work – make sure you are storm stayed with people you like! If you want to talk about with Jamison and hot chocolate is superior to Baileys as a coffee addition, stop by.Continue reading “Happy Holidays”

Look out behind those bushes!
It would be helpful if burglars wore little black masks and striped shirts, but in real life, I don’t think they do. A well lit home, with nicely pruned trees is an excellent start.
It is the season for snuggling
As the snow has finally hit, after an uncertain month – ones thoughts turn to the important matters. “Do I have enough hot chocolate on hand, if I get storm stayed?” “How much turkey can I eat this month?” “Are cheese grilled sandwiches their own food group? Or some sort of crazy synergy between butter,Continue reading “It is the season for snuggling”
