Tasmania is home to some of the most beautiful trees in the world. In addition to its dense rainforests, the Huon Pine Trees of Western Tasmania are the oldest trees in Australia and some of the oldest living organisms on the planet. The stunning natural environment is unsurprising considering Tasmanians breathe the world’s cleanest air.
That’s why Tasmanians have come to expect the highest quality professional care for their trees. Preserving and protecting Tasmanian trees is a priority for all of our Arborists. Part of maintaining a healthy tree population includes cutting down and removing trees that have become dangerous through age, disease or damage. Our experts can help you to identify the trees that pose a threat to you and the community. Removing hazardous trees is not only essential for ensuring your safety, but it creates space for new saplings to grow.
