who has studied and been trained in the cultivation and care of trees and shrubs, including tree surgery (pruning and safe removal), the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of tree diseases.
Arborists are also trained and qualified in the operation of chainsaws, machinery and safe climbing techniques and are skilled at cutting trees at heights above ground level.
An arborist can efficiently assess the condition of trees checking their health and stability and offer solutions for the long-term care and cost effective maintenance of the tree.
Trees are previous and a necessity to the environment to provide a habitat for the wildlife and the quality of our lives, so it's crucial we protect trees. Well maintained trees help produce oxygen, provide shade which in turn helps keep temperatures down, help reduce noise and pollution levels and naturally make our environment aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
An arborist will provide safe work sites including trained ground's person during all works, allocate and mark safe zones around all work areas with a dedicated drop zone for tree debris, erection of any road signage required and safe work zones allocated for any machinery operation.
Be aware of:
Any person that door-knocks telling you your tree needs to be removed
Make sure they are certified and trained in this industry
Do not "lop" or "top" trees, this will in fact harm your tree and may fail in a storm
Ask if they are members of the Queensland Arboriculture Association
Ask if they have insurance
Things to remember:
You may need your local Council's approval before you heavily prune or remove any tree
Certain trees are protected
Only appoint a certified arborist
Prepare your trees before storm season
Incorrect pruning or "lopping" of trees will require more frequent trimming and maintenance, therefore increasing the frequency of visits by your tree lopper and therefore costing you more money
Highly recommend Michael & his team for any tree trimming & removal. What a professional & precise job he did under difficult circumstances & the cost of our job was really affordable too!

After being referred by a friend, Michael and his team removed 6 palm trees from our yard. They did an excellent job, were quick, friendly and left the yard spotless. We were very happy with the result and would highly recommend Michael and his team to anyone else who needs trees removed.

Highly recommended. Michael and team just removed a large tree in a fairly difficult spot in back corner of our yard in Taringa - fences and trees below to contend with. All done quickly and exactly as we wanted. Prompt and well-organised.

Michael and his team did a very professional job removing 2 trees from our garden in West End. Michael's reversing skills with a mulcher are amazing!

Michael and his team carried out a big operation on our 100 year old mango tree. Our garden beneath was left perfectly unaffected and tons of tree cuttings removed down a difficult site. The property was left in great order. We would highly recommend Michael's Tree Services.

We have used Michael for a number of years and wouldn't consider using anyone else. He obviously likes trees and doesn't want to rip everything out and he will advise you on how much pruning is necessary. His support staff are good communicators, there is no damage to the site and it is always left clean. And watching him up a tree is great entertainment!
