Your trees, our passion – Small, Likeable, Local!

At Trusted Tree Care, we're proud to be a small, personable and local company that goes above and beyond for our community.


Sean's love for nature and his technical rope skills led him to pursue a career in arboriculture. After gaining over a decade of experience, he made Sooke his home and envisioned a tree care company that combined high-quality skills with a focus on customer care.


Our comprehensive services include tree removal, tree pruning, hedge trimming and even free cat rescue from trees. We prioritize safety, attention to detail and customer satisfaction in every job we undertake.


Trusted Tree Care is more than just a tree care company. We are your trusted partners in keeping your trees healthy, your property beautiful and your peace of mind intact. We take the time to build a relationship, understand your concerns and provide advice tailored to your needs. No job is too small!

Experience the difference of working with a friendly, local who puts your satisfaction first. Let's nurture your trees and build a lasting relationship!

It is with great respect that we acknowledge Trusted Tree Care is operated on the unceded, current and traditional lands of the T’Souke Nation, Pacheedaht First Nation and Sc'ianew First Nation, the past, current and future stewards of the local coastal temperate rainforest.

Owner & Operator

ISA Certified Arborist & Tree Risk Assessor

Originally hailing from Yorkshire, I made the leap to beautiful British Columbia 15 years ago in pursuit of my love for the great outdoors. I wanted to be surrounded by trees and live where forest meets ocean, and hey, the weather here turned out to be a pretty sweet bonus!


Back in my younger days, I was all about rock climbing. There was something about ropes and rigging that always fascinated me. So when I discovered arboriculture, it was like finding the perfect match—a career that let me hang out in the woods, work with trees and put my technical rope skills to good use.


Sooke, and now Shirley, have been my home for the past five years, and I've accumulated more than a decade of arborist training and experience. That's why I decided it was time to start my own company—one that not only is based in top-notch arborist skills and attention to detail but also has a big emphasis on customer care, building relationships and meeting your pets!


So welcome to Trusted Tree Care, where Yorkshire charm and hard graft, meets the wonders of the west coast. Can't wait to meet you and your furry friends along the way!

Marketing & Tree Homage

Originally from the mainland, it was a different type of forest that drew me to the island - the kelp forest! While Sean loves all things aerial, I'm obsessed with the ocean. Nevertheless, trees hold a huge place in my heart and I come from a family of arborists, Sean included.

My background is in destination marketing, outdoor writing and photography. I've always worked to help people learn about and connect with nature so when Sean wanted to start his own business based in a deep rooted respect for trees, it only made sense to team up!


You'll find me mostly behind the screen, occasionally out dragging branches on the clean-up crew and of course, taking photos and videos for the Trusted Tree Care accounts!

Additionally, I carry out our tree homage projects. We know sometimes a tree you love might need to come down because of it's health and/or it's become a safety issue. To honour those special trees I offer print and illustration services as well as woodwork crafts like candles, coasters, side tables and more depending on the size and condition of the tree. Contact us to find out more.
