About Us - Twelve Oaks Tree Service - Toronto


A tree is a piece of nature. Magnificent and beautiful to gaze at, sadly we do not get to see the inner workings as the roots grow and nurture the tree. To be a healthy tree, it must have deep roots to become strong and develop into the mature fruitful masterpiece that it was created to be.

Twelve Oaks Tree Services is much like a tree. A story about a passion, and how a family could work as a team to help it flourish into a maturing business and vocation. Wes was lucky enough to watch as he nurtured his son Justin into a tree lover like himself. These deep family roots have allowed Twelves Oaks to be an arborist service like no other, wholesome and genuine tree care from our family to yours.

Wes studied Business Administration and Forestry Management at Oklahoma State University in the early 80's. This is where his love for nature and business grew into a lifelong passion.

By the mid 80's Wes packed up his things and moved to Canada. He has been working in the tree and forestry industry in northern Ontario since 1985, and he shows no sign of stopping. Today Wes Franklin is the owner and operator of Twelve Oaks Tree Service Inc.

Justin Franklin, the eldest son of Wes is now following in his father's footsteps and is on his way to being a certified arborist climber. This father and son duo is a force to be reckoned with. Both of these nature lovers are not only passionate about the environment, but passionate about doing things right. This is why when you get a job done by Twelve Oaks you will be dealing directly with Justin or Wes from start to finish.
