Professional Arborist Services Available in Melbourne & Victoria

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 feedback speaks for itself.

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. In fact, if we don’t think your tree needs removing, we won’t recommend it.

Fully Licenced and Insured

All our services are also fully licensed and we routinely work 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 difference between a qualified and an unqualified arborist

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. Qualified professional arborists are sometimes called ‘tree surgeons’ also.

Areas We Service

Our services are available across Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. If you’re located in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, we can generally provide you with a quote within one business day. We also have clients in other areas of Victoria and New South Wales.

Quick List of Popular Services

Tree Assessments

Our complimentary assessments come with no obligations. We always recommend your first step to involve a thorough inspection of 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.

Arboricultural Consulting and Arborist Reports

Our qualified, Level-5 arborists will provide independent evaluations of your property, and our professional consultants can help you work proactively for compliance purposes.

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 arborist reports and help you file them with the appropriate community agency—and we handle everything from pre-development vegetation to tree risk assessments.

Tree Removal or lopping and avoiding property damage

We understand the importance of preserving the property that surrounds your trees during a tree removal process and we therefore do our best to ensure that our treatments have a minimal impact on your outdoor environment.
