A feel for the great outdoors and the love of trees and Mother Nature sowed a fertile idea in Simon Legault’s mind: start up a firm that would allow him to help all other tree lovers to take discerning and appropriate care of their trees. Office work and routine are not his cup of tea: an ex-member of the Armed Forces, he has travelled extensively; today, he savours his work in forests and woodlands or with trees ornamenting gardens and residential or commercial lots.
Thus he completed his studies to obtain his secondary school vocational diploma (D.E.P.) in tree pruning and growing. Thereafter, he first practiced his trade as a self-employed worker for a few years, then started up his own firm in 2005.
With his five employees, all graduates of their trade, he makes it a point to raise awareness in tree and woodland owners of the importance of refraining from cutting trees down, if at all possible.
He and his team carry out all entrusted tasks in compliance with government standards and regulations, in particular regarding environmental protection.
In fact, Service d’arbres Legault has been awarded the “ECO Profile” designation by Terra Choice, one of the largest environmental specialist firms in North America. The “ECO” icon refers to a firm that stands out by its environmentally responsible products, services and/or business practices.
The firm’s services are offered at competitive prices, and the team always stands ready to answer questions from existing or potential clients.
