About Us

Michael and I started Australian Arbor Care in 2008. We decided early on that we wanted to be a respected tree business in Brisbane known for the quality of our work.

 

Michael had seen the best and worst of the industry having worked for several other tree businesses in Brisbane.

 

At the time we had a Nissan Patrol 4×4 and a 6×8 trailer. We hunted jobs and managed to win a few. Both having to work other jobs, we would book in work for Saturday mornings.

 

After around 6 months of doing this we decided that the next logical move was to purchase a truck and chipper but there was no way we could afford both. I said “well we can’t drive a chipper around” and so we bought our truck.

We were able to take on bigger jobs and found we were picking up more work.

 

In 2009 we made the scary move of Michael moving away from paid employment and focusing on building our business. Sometimes we would only have 1 day of work and Michael did some contract climbing for other tree companies to keep us going.

 

The time had come to do some paid advertising. We tried the local paper but it was expensive and we weren’t getting any calls. We then joined onto some lead generation sites and things really took off.

 

Michael needed a hand now. I was still working part time and doing my best to answer enquiries and set up quotes and bookings between working.

 

We put on a young local lad who was interested in learning about Aboricultue and how to climb trees. He eventually became our apprentice.

We have built a great reputation now and are constantly refining our processes to ensure quality work and a safe environment for our clients and staff. We hope to continue servicing our amazing existing clients and find new ones throughout the coming years.

 

It’s now 2018 and still every time the phone rings with someone wanting a quote or a making a booking it’s still a thrill.

 

We work really hard and everything we do is for the satisfaction of our clients, the reputation of our business and the for benefit of our family.
