Welcome to Total Tree Care: A family-owned business with over two decades of experience in the field.
Our trustworthy services and exemplary staff have helped some of Melbourne’s most reputable community councils, insurance agencies and local schools with their tree care needs—and our results speak for themselves. Whether you’re part of a broader organisation in the market for arborist consultation or are simply a private resident looking for guidance concerning your trees, we can provide advice that’s tailored to your unique situation.
Our number one priority has always been maintaining the safety of your property and the health of your trees, and our well-trained staff offers exceptional service, unmatched by any other arborist company in Melbourne.
Our suite of services covers…
When it comes to arboricultural assistance, you should always work with a trusted partner you can rely on every day, throughout the year. Melbourne’s volatile “four-seasons in-a-day” meteorological cycle never lets up—and you can’t afford to wait weeks or months to give your trees the total care they require. That’s where we come in.
Our assessments come with absolutely no obligation. We can thoroughly inspect your trees and property before taking any course of action. When the time is right, we’ll proceed with pruning, tree removal, disease treatments and more, depending on what your landscape needs.
Our qualified, Level-5 arborists will provide independent evaluations of your property, and our professional consultants can help you work proactively to improve the beauty of your land and sustain the health of your trees.
Before a new project can begin or existing grounds can be developed, you’ll need to file a report made by a qualified arborist. Following an onsite inspection by one of our certified professionals, we will prepare the necessary reports and help you file them with the appropriate community agency—and we handle everything from pre-development vegetation to tree risk assessments.
All our services are also fully licensed and thoroughly secure.
Total Tree Care works to exceed industry standards for safety and environmental care. Our company is a member—in good standing—of both the ASSA (Advanced Safety Systems Australia) and the VTIO (Victorian Tree Industry Organisation). Our staff is likewise dedicated to meeting the requirements of OHS Policies and Procedures, and we collectively hold ourselves to the highest levels of safety and service. All tree-pruning jobs meet the exacting specifications of the Australian standards for “pruning of amenity trees” (4373-2007). In addition, our insurance carrier guarantees a liability policy for up to $20 million—an essential protection for our customers and our community.

The price varies depending on the work performed. An easy way to ascertain the cost is to schedule a complimentary onsite visit with one of our qualified arborists. This type of assessment can provide an honest evaluation of your grounds and help you determine the best course of action when it comes to your trees.
As humans, we depend on greenery. At Total Tree Care, we never advocate tree removal if we believe pruning will both preserve the health of the tree and prove less costly to the property owner. Our staff knows how beneficial trees can be in terms of property valuations, and we will always take such considerations into account…unlike some of our competitors. Many tree removers will simply uproot a tree without thinking twice.
It’s a question of certification and training. All of Total Tree Care’s climbing arborists in Melbourne must maintain a certification level of 3 or better, which encompasses their continuing education. Final tree work recommendations from our company are made by an arborist in Melbourne with a Level 5 certification who will then oversee the work in progress.
Certainly. Total Tree Care has been in operation for over 20 years. We’ve got a long list of public and private clients in the community. Ask us about some of our recent jobs and we’ll be happy to tell you more!
As mentioned above, our insurance policy covers public liability up to $20 million. All of our certificates are available on the OHS & Insurance page (click the link at the top right hand corner for more information).
We understand the importance of preserving the property that surrounds your trees and we therefore do our best to ensure that our treatments have a minimal impact on your outdoor environment.
Our services are available across Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. If you’re located in the southeastern suburbs of Melbourne, we can generally provide you with a quotation within one business day. We also have clients in other areas of Victoria and New South Wales.
We just want to let you know how happy we are with the job you did on our Willow Myrtle. We feel much safer now that you pruned back those heavy branches over the house and the cable system you put in gives us extra confidence. Now we can sleep at night! The tree also looks a much better shape too. Thanks for giving us the right advice; we hated the thought of losing the tree but were concerned about it’s safety. Now our problems are solved. Thanks a lot.

Just a short note to thank you for the most professional work you and your team have done. To be frank, I had been given a cheaper quote than yours, but I gave you the work because others just fell trees but I believe you really do care about my trees. I shall definitely recommend you to my friends. Wishing you all the best with your business.
Thanks for providing us with a quote to remove our Gum Tree from rear decking on Friday. I’ve had 2 other quotes since and have to comment on the professionalism that set you apart from the others. We would like to proceed asap.
I’ve used other tree companies in the past and were not happy with the way they just trampled the rest of my garden to get the trees down and the ones they pruned were just butchered. With Total Tree Care, it was so different… your guys did an excellent job and I can see they know what they are doing when it comes to pruning trees properly. I was so happy I told all my friends in the office the next day! I will definitely be getting you back again. Thanks so much.
Thanks for removing our big gum tree, we found you all very professional.
