Both brothers graduated from Fleming College in 2012. Josh with a degree in arboriculture and urban forestry and Cody as a heavy equipment operator. In 2014, they established Saunders Tree Service and have been providing professional arbour management services ever since.

“We had 11 giant Poplar trees removed from our residential backyard by Saunders Tree Service, which we found on the internet. We we’re pleased that we made the right decision to hire them, when we found them to be professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. They took their time to clean up the debris before they left the job. We still have some conifers left on our property and if we needed them cut down, we would not hesitate to call Saunders Tree Service again.”

– John and Janice T, Brighton ON

“I hired Saunders Tree Service to remove and trim some challenging trees around my cottage that were in the way of future renovations and others that were concerning me. As I wasn’t there to watch the progress, I appreciated being kept informed daily with text updates and pictures. Cody and Josh were professional and courteous in all our interactions, as well as random inquiries from my inquisitive neighbours. The cottage and ground were left in excellent shape. I was thoroughly pleased with the work that was completed and I would highly recommend Saunders Tree Service to anyone looking for an excellent experience. I will have them back to do additional work in the future.”

– Robert B, Ennismore ON

“I’ve been purchasing my firewood from Saunders Tree Service for a number of years because the wood is consistently well seasoned, uniformly cut, and contains various high-quality hardwoods. Furthermore, Josh and Cody have demonstrated their reliability year after year when arranging and following through on delivery. They are a pleasure to deal with, and consequently I’ve recommended them numerous times without hesitation. “

“Josh and Cody Saunders have taken down several trees at our cottage property over the last few years. They always put safety first and are extremely professional. We highly recommend Saunders Tree Service.”

– Dino I, Marmora ON

“I contacted Saunders Tree Service after being ignored by one of the other major players in the area…twice. I had what I considered to be a rather challenging set of 4 very large trees to be removed. Typically I would tackle this kind of thing myself, but these removals were more complex, requiring precision to avoid power lines and roof lines (in fact, the house was built around 3 of the trees which had almost become part of the building). The Saunders team came to provide a quote very quickly and provided a start date perfect for what I was seeking. They commenced the work on time as promised despite some weather challenges and executed the work and subsequent cleanup to perfection. I obsessed a bit over making sure the work was done while avoiding damage to our home, but after watching their methodical dissection of the first tree, I was completely put at ease. As I said, the work was done on time, done to my high standards, and was excellent value for the money. I would highly recommend them for any job, big or small. They are great at what they do! “

– Scott N, Madoc ON

“I have employed the services of Saunders Tree Service approximately 5 times now over 4 years. They are my go to guys for dangerous trees near powerlines, and to give me an edge in managing 86 acres. Josh and Cody know their trade and show reliably and always employ a heads down work ethic. They barely stop for lunch. You may find cheaper but you wont find better. They are shining stars in a trade filled with guys that do not show up for jobs when they commit to do so. It’s refreshing to work with nice, reliable professionals. I would only ever consider using Saunders Tree Service.”

– Stephen K, Bancroft ON

“I employed Josh and Cody to remove a huge tree in my backyard very close to the rear of my house and garage, I was nervous about this as I pictured in my mind that huge tree coming down on my garage roof. But, nothing like that happened. They came, never stopped working, brought the tree down and did absolutely no damage to my house, my garage or my lawn. They even cut the tree into blocks so I could use it for firewood. They cleaned up everything and in the end you could not know they had even been here. I have no hesitation in recommending them for any tree job , big or small, they were great and I am extremely happy with their work.”
