Care – Pruning – Lopping
Trees add character, value, beauty, structure and shade to your garden.
A sustainable approach to take care of your trees
Fabien Martin is highly skilled and knowledgeable in all forms of tree work, that is why he created a specialized team devoted entirely to tree work. No tree is an inert or isolated being, each root strengthens the soil, exchange nutrients with surrounding plants. Each individual changes the wind pattern, protects the garden from winter frost and summer sunburn.
Rocco Gilli, our experienced tree worker, works his magic to give your trees the optimum care they require. He is passionate about trees and for 11 years has worked with the region's greatest tree workers, taking the time to learn, and explore with them each aspect of the trade, until he mastered them perfectly. It is with love and respect for trees and nature that he practices his art.
"We have a lot to learn from trees"
Isolated tree, grove or forest, each unit is apprehended in its uniqueness in direct association with fauna, flora and people, its position, its age, its shape, its usefulness... We travel to each site, and take the time to analyze the tree and its environment in order to deliver the most relevant notice. Martin & Martin works in an ecological dynamic, we make every effort to ensure the beauty of your garden and the health of your plants through sustainable methods. Once we have made a full assessment , we implement the necessary interventions.
As much as possible, we make every effort to preserve your trees. But when necessary, we will safely cut a dangerous or sick tree down and dispose of it.
Anchoring and guylines
When a tree is unsteady or leaning, due to a storm, or following its transplantation or even after root disturbance, we can work at realigning it. Cables or ropes are attached to the trunk and anchored, in order to stabilize and secure the tree while allowing it to take root or extend its lifespan without endangering the people living around it.
Our certified climbers are equipped with a telescopic cherry picker, as well as all other necessary equipment, to work to safety standards in all situations.

Preventive and curative biological treatments
All soil has a history, some old activities leave traces. A sick tree may suffer from the presence of certain metals in the soil. We remove lead and other toxic materials from the soil to allow the tree to recover its health.
