Give and Take


About Give and Take Tree Service

Our goal is to ensure that our staff is safe, trees are well cared for, and our clients are completely satisfied with the services we provide.

We offer a wide variety of services to residential and commercial clients throughout the Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver areas.

Give and Take Tree Service was founded in 2013 by Matt Dunstan and currently has two teams of professional arborists passionate about healthy trees.

What's with the Palm Tree?

We're BC-based, so a palm tree may look a little out ofplace.


We have rebranded, but our trucks still show the old logo. So you might wonder, why did we originally choose a palm tree since we're BC-based? That's a little out of place. Well, there is a short story behind it.

While travelling, we learned of Belize's Give and Take Palm tree (Chrysophila Argentea). Its fronds are used to make brooms, but the tree is covered in large thorns that can be quite painful if touched. However, the tree also provides the antidote to the pain it inflicts.

The Give and Take Palm exemplifies all trees, and we've built our business using the same philosophy, which is why we chose this Palm tree as our logo and how it influenced our name.

More recently, we found a designer who created a logo with a tree which signifies life. We loved the look of it and rebranded to this new logo. But you may still see the original logo on our trucks. We may, over time, update the trucks, or we may not. Currently, it is a reminder of our humble beginnings and the life and business that the Give and Take Palm tree inspired.


About Matt Dunstan

Matt Dunstan, an ISA Certified Arborist, has an affinity for trees which began at a young age, climbing trees in his backyard. Now, Matt climbs trees for a living. Matt worked for 10 years in the arborist industry training under a Professional Arborist before obtaining his own ISA Certification in 2011.

Matt’s wife, Meagan, started out by playing an integral role in the day-to-day operations of the business. Meagan has had to let much of that go to also take care of their growing family, but her heart and soul are still very much involved with the family business. They have four children, Elijah, Brooklyn, James and Levy.

Tree stewardship is a passion for both Matt and Meagan. It shows in the way they and their staff care for trees and serve their customers. Matt enjoys educating people about healthy tree care and working closely with his customers to ensure that Canada's trees last for generations.
