  • Brisbane Tree Care For Residents

FAQ’s: Arborist Brisbane

  • What is the difference between a tree arborist and a tree lopper?

    Although they may superficially appear to offer the same service, the quality of work offered by a tree lopper is extremely different from that of a tree arborist.

    Tree lopping involves indiscriminately chopping off tree branches for immediate aesthetic improvement, without regard for the long-term impact on the tree’s health. Tree lopping can actually weaken and stress a tree, leaving it vulnerable to pest disease.

    In contrast, tree services performed by an arborist are guaranteed to properly maintain the health and appearance of your tree. An arborist — educated in the science of arboriculture — is qualified and trained to make a well-considered assessment and changes that will preserve the tree’s health and vitality. They are fully insured and often reputable members of organisations such as Arboriculture Australia (AA), Queensland Arboricultural Association (QAA) and Landscape Queensland.

    If you care for the health of your garden and your property, it is a wise investment to seek out the expertise of an arborist, who can take care of the long-term health of your landscaping.

  • How do I find a qualified Brisbane arborist?

    Hiring a reputable and qualified Brisbane arborist is the best way to ensure your trees’ health and protect your property from damage. Having said that, it’s important to seek a certified Brisbane tree arborist with a wealth of experience and strong customer testimonials.

Client Testimonials

“Please thank the crews that came to cut the tree and grind the stump. A real professional job and they have left the garden and garage clean and tidy.

Thanks again!”

Mark, November 2020

“I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to the guys who removed the bougainvillea trees from my house in Eatons Hill. Not only did they do a superb job but they were very polite to my wife, given the trying circumstances they were under while removing the trees. From the very beginning, of the quotation phase to the completion of the job, I have been very pleased. It’s not very often that you come across a company everyone has the same level of service.”

— Sean Kays

“Hi. Just an email to say thank you so much for taking the tree down yesterday! They did such a good job of cleaning up after themselves! Thanks so much.”

— Di

“Looking out at our back garden tonight reminded me that we have not thanked you and your men for a great job.  We are so pleased with the professional way your men did their work and the garden looks so much improved.  Thank you very much”.

— Graham

“Folks, very impressed with the efficiency and thoroughness of the team today. Thanks.”

 — Peter

“Just wanting to let you know that the guys turned up this morning right on time and did a great job, it actually surprised me how quickly they were able to get everything done. They were very professional and the job they did looks really good.

I will definitely not hesitate to recommend you guys in the future.”

— Aaron 

“I just wanted to send a note of thanks to Peter and the team. I have just inspected the tree at Barina and want to compliment you all. The balance and beauty of the tree has been maintained and in my view this marks the professional quality of your work. Many thanks.”

— Alison

“Your team successfully removed the Silky Oak on Wednesday. Richard and I were very impressed at the efficiency and pleasant attitude of the team that carried out the tree removal.”

— Elspeth

“Just a short note to thank you for coming on site and to the guys who attended today. They were most professional and the morning went smoothly and all areas cleaned perfectly before they left.”

— Tracey 

“Your team did a wonderful job when they did their stump grinding. They were courteous and left my property in amazing condition. The tree crew that had been there prior were also wonderful. I was in retail and have won many awards for customer service, so I know when it’s good… and your guys were great!”

— Kerry

“I would like to take this time to thank the team of guys that were here yesterday to carry out the work at the complex.

I found them to be extremely professional and friendly and the job carried out was of a very high standard. As you can understand that I was always apprehensive about this work being carried out in regard to damage to paintwork etc, but I had no reason to be concerned. The guys were extremely professional and understanding and not a tree was touched without my okay. Their regard to safety was also of a high standard and working on a residential complex with people movement at all times was of concern to me but the guys always had an eye on the public areas and my residents.

Congratulations on employing such a professional team”

—  Garry

“My wife and I were really pleased with the work Arbor Operations had done around the house and appreciated the effort in cleaning up afterwards. Thank you.”

— Craig
