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.
