Professional Arborists providing the highest level of service to our customers.
We are excited to provide our services throughout Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, the Okanagan, BC’s Central and Northern Interior, Alberta and even the Yukon. We area a small, growing company with a huge heart. Our mission is to provide excellent arborist services using environmentally friendly methods to all of our customers. Our aim is to have happy customers who share their experience with others. Lastly, our vision is be a leader in providing solutions to both the consumer and business sectors in balance with the environment and technical progress.
What separates VI Tree from the competition is our years of cumulative experience within the industry including all the ticket certifications necessary to perform the required tasks. Our 70 ft scissor lift bucket trucks vs. the standard 55 ft ones, provide more reach, functionality and accessibility. Our progressive environmentally responsible steps include utilizing biodiesel and on all diesel vehicles and equipment, as well as using BioPlus, vegetable base oil for our equipment lubrication needs. Moving further in this direction, we have started utilizing battery operated chainsaws.
We are proud of our team, their work and their accomplishments. Among his numerous credentials, Peter Brinson, our Safety Officer, is one of the few ISA Board Certified Master Arborists in the province. Our owner, Troy Soderstrom, is born and raised here in the City of Nanaimo and has been in the arborist industry most of his life.
