Welcome to Treemendous

About Us

For 40 years, John Gibson has owned and operated TREEmendous Tree Sales and Transplanting, one of Canada’s original large tree transplanting businesses.  “When I started, the concept was so new and unheard of that people told me, ‘it couldn’t be done, the trees won’t live’”.  Thousands of trees later, with a success rate of over 98%, John continues to transplant large trees across Southern Ontario.


His passion for trees and their conservation is why John started his business.  Over the years, he has built up an extensive inventory of specimen trees on his tree farms and has shared his extensive knowledge of tree health care on a consulting basis with clients throughout North America.  Whether it is a sick or injured tree, a special memorial tree or a prized specimen, John can offer his expertise.


John consults with his customers before starting the job to discuss the proper placement of the trees, taking into consideration, site lines, space for ultimate growth, soil and wind conditions and the customer’s needs.  He works closely with his customers to ensure that their transplanted trees or trees which have been purchased from his nursery are maintained successfully.   His tree care booklet is an easy guide for his customers.
