Harbourview Tree Experts
Locally owned and operated by second-generation, ISA-certified arborist Kim Gye, Harbourview Tree Experts has been servicing the Greater Victoria area (including Saanich, Esquimalt, Sidney, Oak Bay, Metchosin, Colwood, Westshore, Langford, the Highlands, Central Saanich, North Saanich, and View Royal) since 1990.
For Kim himself, however? His experience goes back much farther than the beginning of Harbourview Tree Experts. “My father was in the business,” he explains, “so I started working for him when I was still in high school. Even younger, maybe. It was the very first job skill that I learned. I’ve now done it full time since 1977, give or take four or five years when I was going to college at the time.”
Kim’s years of experience and natural knack with clients has earned Harbourview Tree Experts a reputation of reliability, affordability, and quality work. Year-round, they provide Greater Victoria with:
- Free project estimates
- Hazardous tree assessment and removal
- Hedge and tree pruning
- Storm damage control and cleanup
- Tree and shrub management and planting
- Property disease analysis and control
Harbourview Tree Experts: Created With Client Satisfaction in Mind
“Harbourview Tree Experts was created because I wanted to be my own boss,” says Kim. “Funnily enough, when I was working for other companies we were always being driven to complete jobs quickly and not spend time with clients. What I wanted was to be free to spend more time with my clients, to sit down and chat and have a cup of coffee to establish more of a personal rapport after a job was done.
“The feedback I get from clients about this now is terrific,” he continues. “While Harbourview Tree Experts do very good work, lots of people do very good work. The rapport I have with clients is a main reason why people keep booking; especially with how long I’ve been in the business, it’s easy for me to build that rapport with people. Often when people start in this business they can be uptight or have anxiety about selling services with people, but I don’t have any of that. If I’m talking to you as a client you’re getting exactly who I am, straight out of the can.”

Pruning and Hazardous Tree Removal Are in High Demand this Summer Season
Kim explains that, because more people are out enjoying their gardens or taking up exterior property upgrades during the summer months, Harbourview Tree Experts receive frequent call-ins for pruning services. Luckily, Kim says it’s all hands on deck this summer in order to provide limb removal for trees and the trimming of hedges.
Hazardous tree assessment is one of their most popular services, regardless of the weather or time of year. He also reminds clients of Harbourview Tree Experts’ zero-obligation free estimate offer, which is available via the phone. “Free estimates are beneficial for clients because they can have someone come by and assess the project with them, have any questions answered, and have an accurate quote for the work,” Kim says.
