About Us

LE Tree Care started as a branch of the property maintenance services division of its parent company LE Construction and Maintenance.  Over the years, it has grown and flourished, led by certified arborist Jeremiah Erhardt’s (shown in the tree above) passion for promoting healthy trees. 

Today, LE Tree Care is trusted by organizations like the City of Calgary, the province of Alberta, MEC, Colliers International, and others.

Our "Healthy" Focus

While many tree companies specialize in tree removals (and some even have “removals” in their name), LE Tree Care believes in caring for trees instead of removing them.

Healthy trees are more resilient to pests and disease, live longer, and provide more benefits to the environment.

Don’t get us wrong, we are certified, highly trained climbers and tree fallers who are skilled at tree removal, but our passion for saving trees has fueled the deep desire to be experts at everything needed for healthy and sustainable tree growth. We love saving trees and work to further the growth and development of the urban forest.

This expert knowledge is what sets LE Tree Care apart from other tree companies and is the motivation behind our tree planting services, tree and shrub maintenance services, and tree repair services. View our complete list of services here.

LE Tree Care believes in spreading the love for trees to others. This passion is what led us to develop a curriculum for elementary school children. Each year, we can be found educating students about trees as a part of their grade 5/6 biology curriculum.
