Certified Arborist Edmonton

Arbor Man Tree Care” was founded in 1998 by Mike Burge, an ISA Certified Arborist.

Mike grew his company slowly by surrounding himself with like-minded individuals that carry the same passion for trees and Arboriculture. In 2001 Ken Unrau joined the team and his wealth of knowledge, skill level and passion for Arboriculture has been invaluable in helping Mike to grow his business and recruit a highly skilled and talented team. Both Mike and Ken are instrumental in keeping Arborman and its team of employees up to date in the latest industry technologies, diagnostic tools, and equipment, by attending workshops abroad as well as the Tree Care Industry Association yearly Expo. We place a high value on our customers and aim to provide exceptional service for all of their Tree Service needs and we strive to remain leaders in the industry.  Mike is an experienced certified arborist in Edmonton.


It’s a good question. We offer many of the same services as do our competitors, such as pruning, fertilizing and tree removal. Occasionally our prices are higher for the same amount of work. So what does Arbor Man offer that other tree care services can’t? Knowledge, experience, and expertise!

Anyone with a pickup truck and chainsaw can call themselves an arborist, but what defines Arbor Man as the industry leader in our commitment to sharing the knowledge of trees with our customers and increasing our own knowledge base to provide the finest healthcare for your trees. We will show up to your site with state-of-the-art equipment and professional personnel.

Arbor Man employs “ISA Certified Arborist”. They’re the best in the business. It’s that simple. If other companies say they are certified, ask for proof of certification. Most companies are lucky if they have two “ISA Certified Arborist”. Put the care of your trees in the hands of a trained professional.


Arbor Man Tree Care may not be the cheapest. We are usually booked weeks in advance, and we only deal with clients that are serious about having work done by trained professionals. There are many companies that can be there the next day. If so, ask yourself why. It’s simple. They are not professionals, and they aren’t in demand. If you demand results, they have a recognized, reputable company do your work for you.

There are many inexperienced tree care providers out there and beware of the guys who don’t have proper quote sheets, insurance, WCB, or who show up in an old truck with OSB on the sides, LOL. Do your homework, and I can tell you there are only 6 good tree care companies in all of the Edmonton area. If you decide not to go with us, well then at least have your trees done by a reputable company with “ISA Certified Arborist” we respect.
