History

Manotick Tree Movers Inc. began as a registered partnership in 1991 (incorporated in 1996) by Ralph Sikkema and Fred Stevens. In 2011 Ken Stevens, Fred’s son, bought Ralph’s shares. Ken and Fred now run the business but Ralph remains a very valuable manager. Our management team currently combine to offer over 60 years of hands-on experience in the tree care industry.

Our early beginnings of relocating trees with a single tree spade has evolved to now include a complete range of the most progressive tree moving equipment available. Our tree spades sizes 38" through 90" are capable of digging and relocating trees up to 9" caliper size, including evergreens up to 600 cm (20 feet) tall.

We have always taken much pride in personally selecting and sourcing the finest quality seedlings and liners to grow and develop at our 55 acre farm at Carsonby. This allows us to offer a wide selection of the finest locally grown trees already proven hardy for our severe Ottawa valley winters.

Over the years our tree pruning, removal, and stump grinding services has also grown to become a significant component of our business

Thanksgiving

Jeremiah 17:7,8

But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him.

He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out it's roots to the stream. It does not fear when the heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.
