Arbour Crest

About Us


Arbour Crest was established in Saskatoon SK in 2008. Robin Adair, prior President of Adair Tree Care Ltd. (est. 1997) in Calgary AB, and current President of Arbour Crest, graduated with honours in Horticulture from Olds College in 1996. He then worked at the Calgary Zoo botanic gardens for seven seasons, while simultaneously “growing” his own company. Robin became an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist in 1996. To learn the trade and gain expertise, he worked for several tree companies in the Calgary area. In 2010, Robin received his Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) Certified Landscape Technician credentials. And in 2015, Robin and two other Arbour Crest arborists received their Tree Risk Assesment Qualification credentials. This qualification can provide tree owners and risk managers with the information to make informed decisions to enhance tree benefits, health, and longevity. Robin keeps his horticultural knowledge current by attending conferences and trade shows across Western Canada, by attending tree-climbing competitions and by writing articles and teaching.

Robin taught the pruning portion of the Master Gardener program at the Calgary Zoo from 1999 to 2007 and taught hands-on pruning courses for the Calgary Horticultural Society and community associations around Calgary. Now in Saskatoon, Robin has been an instructor for Master Gardeners, for Hort. Week at the University of Saskatchewan, and presents tree care workshops for Lee Valley Tools and other associations around Saskatoon.

Tree Tidbits:

There are numerous benefits to planting trees both economic and spiritual.

  • A deciduous tree planted on the south side of a house on the prairies shades the house and keeps it cool in the summer. In the winter the leaves have fallen and the house can get as much sun as possible.
  • Less electricity is used to power air conditioners in the summer on houses that are shaded by trees. Shade trees can cool a house by up to 8-10 degrees Celsius in the summer.
  • Less natural gas is used in the winter to heat acreage homes when the home is surrounded by a thick shelterbelt of trees.
  • Trees sequester carbon from the atmosphere. Planting trees lessens your carbon footprint and helps reduce global warming.
  • Trees and shrubs filter water, cool neighborhoods, reduce erosion, harbor wildlife, and block wind.
  • Trees absorb air pollutants like ozone, carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide and then give off oxygen. One tree produces about 260 pounds of oxygen each year!
