Fruit Tree Pruning and Landscaping
Fruit Tree Pruning for Higher Yields
To get a new fruit tree off to the right start, virtually nothing is as important as proper pruning. Improper or not pruning at all, can damage the tree, lower fruit yield and make the tree and fruit prone to disease that spreads to other trees. We have the equipment, certifications and experience to prune for better crops, whether you have one backyard tree or an entire orchard. We prune at the right time of year – late fall or early spring before the buds break through – to encourage fast growth. Besides creating a visually appealing tree, correct pruning keeps your tree healthy, prevents breakage, and increases yields over time. Pruning is a multi-year process, adapting to the growth stage of each tree while maintaining rigorous health.
Pruning over time prevents shock as leaves and branches are removed to facilitate healthy growth the following season. Of course, storm damaged branches and diseased trees should be pruned or removed as soon as possible after the problem occurs. Sealing the branch after pruning decreases the chance of disease entering through the softer pulp that the outer bark naturally otherwise inhibits. If you are a commercial grower, you will want to keep your trees maintained for the overall health of your orchard and increase crop yield year by year.
There are several fruit crops grown in Southwest BC including apple, cherry, peach and pear, along with smaller hybrid varieties that need supports to carry heavy fruit loads. Each tree has its own unique growing habits, seasonal needs and pruning demands.
Call us for an assessment and scheduled maintenance plan for your orchard or backyard fruit trees.
Landscaping your backyard paradise includes soil sculpting, planting, hedge and shrub trimming, deck and fence building. We offer a variety of services for residential and commercial landscaping projects. Check out our Facebook page or Gallery for landscaping photos and inspiration. Soil sculpting gives your backyard unique features designed for styles like English gardens, to utilitarian functions like bank stability and sound barriers.
Think of strolling along your new stone walkway or enjoying a xeriscape displaying hardy plants that take little to no water, but still looks beautiful. Every client we meet has unique needs, and this makes our job exciting!

Tree Planting Services
Planting on a large scale begins with a detailed plan considering growth and soil, available space, shade and sunlight. We plant for back yards and commercial large-scale plots. Large or small, we plant them all. If you want mature trees in your yard without waiting for seedlings to grow, we have the equipment to transport and plant large purchases.
Our planting service is the ultimate solution after site preparation as we work along with developers and commercial landowners to beautify urban communities. If you need greenspace with the added privacy of a planted hedge, call us to discuss the options that would work best for your zone.
Hedge and Shrub Trimming
We would love to trim and shape your trees and shrubs to give you that beautiful professionally landscaped look. Hedge and shrub trimming not only looks artistic and neat, but facilitates vigorous growth and plant health. High, thick shrubs create effective sound barriers, shade, and the beauty of a green outdoor wall.
Fruit bearing shrubs like high bush blueberries, raspberries and Haskap also need trimming for high yields. We invite you to call us with your questions about our hedge and shrub trimming services in Kamloops and the surrounding areas. Our team works throughout southwestern BC offering our tree and landscaping services to happy customers.
Custom Fence Building for Privacy, Security and Aesthetics
We build fencing and gates to protect and beautify your property. Check out our Gallery page for photos of our custom fence building with Cedar and Katsura wood. Cedar is well known for its versatility as a building product, is extremely durable and resists rain damage. Aromatic and insect repelling, western red cedar is pitch-free allowing the application of stains and finishes.
Cedar is a renewable resource, reducing our carbon footprint and does not have to be chemically treated for environmental performance. Wood cut from the Katsura Tree, native to Japan, is valued as a fence building material for its aesthetics, durability, and is an excellent choice for carving and fine woodwork. The Katsura tree is the only surviving species of the Cercidiphyllaceae family and is popular as an ornamental with its soaring height and seasonally vibrant foliage. If you have to cut down your Katsura tree, don’t let the wood go to waste! We can use it to build your new fence.
