Our Social Responsibility
At Brisbane Tree Experts, we are: Socially responsible, Environmentally friendly and Community focused. Itâ€™s fitting that we are in the tree care business because weâ€™ve really â€˜grownâ€™ with the community; and not just the Brisbane community, but the greater community as well.
We have always been socially responsible, with some of our initiatives being in place since our business started. Brisbane Tree Experts are recognised as industry leaders in this regard, having won the inaugural Queensland Arboricultural Association ‘Sustainability Award 2012’.
Paperless Quoting System
To minimise paper wastage we complete all tree service quoting on an iPad, and we email the quote directly to you. If you don’t have a computer, no worries, in these cases we will print the quote and post to your address. We are extremely proud of our paperless quoting system!
We ‘Adopt’ a Tree For You at the End of Your Tree Care Job
At the completion of our tree care service we purchase a tree for you in one of Australia’s revegetation plantations. You can follow its progress over the years! It’s a small way to say thank you, while also supporting the ‘greening’ our beautiful country.
Wildlife Regulation and Rescue Mandate
In many cases, we deliver tree care services in order to protect people’s homes. In doing so, we are possibly disrupting or removing the homes of our Australian wildlife. To minimise the effects on these animals, we arrange for certain animals such as nesting birds to be rescued and relocated. If there is a koala in your tree, we are legally required to stand down and we will return to complete the tree work the following day (because Koalas do not stay in the same tree overnight). Any tree service company who works on a tree with a koala in it will be heavily fined.
100% Vegetation Recycling
All trees are recycled in one form or another. All chips are sent to a wood mill where they are made into other products. All large tree parts are sent to hammer mills where they are made into timber products.
We Strictly Adhere to the Australian and International Pruning Standards
Reckless, needless or incorrect pruning leads to the unnecessary destruction of trees, as well as contributing to potentially hazardous situations. We always follow the strict pruning standards AS 4373-2007 for the Pruning of amenity trees. This Australian Standard® was prepared by Committee EV-018, Arboriculture.
We Support the Community through Charity Events
If you are interested, we’ll provide you with information about Movember and Breast Cancer Awareness.
Trees are our past, present and our future. Â They keep us alive as well as being aesthetically pleasing. Â We are proud to take part in National Tree Day , which is a fantastic initiative to encourage people to plant native trees and plants. Check out the latest photos in our gallery.
Movember is a fantastic charity that raises money and awareness for prostate cancer. Â Each year some of our male staff grow their â€˜moâ€™sâ€™ to raise much-needed cash for this worthwhile charity.
