Where to find the good ones
There are many tools you can use to find an arborist, but the best place these days is online. You could look in the local paper, but the odds of getting a good tradesmen at the right price is diminished as you have no way of seeing any reviews or how they present the face of their company (their website) online.
I would start with a Google search and first try to find a review website for local arborists. Yellow pages is a good place to start as they generally have most businesses listed and they allow customers to give reviews.
Something to take into consideration when searching for a Melbourne arborist is whether or not they are actually qualified. It would seem like a given, but the tree lopping industry is not actually regulate by the Australian federal or state government.
This basically means anyone with a chainsaw can call themselves a tree expert and advertise in the local paper, create a website and begin doing tree work. It’s happening more often than you think and with disastrous results in some cases.
Make sure you are aware of who you are hiring and make sure they have all the correct paperwork before you hire them. Just like you would not hire a non-qualified plumber or electrician, I don’t recommend hiring an arborist who is not qualified.
Ask for these three things
Below have outlined a list of things and paperwork you need to ask for when selecting a tree company to carry out arbor works on your property.
Anyone with the qualification will have this paperwork on hand and be happy to provide it.
Certificate or diploma in Arboriculture
The most basic training is a Certificate II in Arboriculture and is required for them to be onsite and working. It is preferred that the Climber has a minimum of Cert. III in Arboriculture.
After that you have a Diploma which is the highest grade of arborist. They are capable of carrying out arborist reports on trees around Melbourne.
Public liability insurance
This should actually be provide without you even asking for it. Most legitimate companies will do this as we all know the industry is full of underqualified and underinsured cowboys.
Here is an example of a company with all their paperwork in place. You can click on the links to view their paperwork in full.
This insurance will cover the company and yourself if any damage to property or persons happens while they are on your property. This is not actually their insurance policy but yours.
The industry standard is 10 million public liability insurance, but 5 million will also suffice in most cases.
Minimum 5 years’ experience
This you can check yourself by going to ABN Lookup which is a government run site that allows you to put a company name or ABN number and see some details about the company.
Firstly if they are who they say they are and secondly how long they have been in operation. 5 years in business would be a bare minimum for larger tree removal jobs in Melbourne, but can be a little less if it’s just a small prune or stump removal job.
How we can help

How we can help save you a tonne of money
The biggest factor when it comes to saving money on tree removal or pruning is getting the right company to quote your job. What do I mean by the right company?
Basically one that is not going to rip you off. You see, the price of a tree removal is very discretionary. One arborist might see a $1,500 job, the other might see a $2,200 removal job. Both will do it exactly the same, but one probably has bigger overheads than the other.

Over the last 4 year we have been through many arborist who have read well online and in their reviews, but have performed poorly with our review system. The one that counts is the one that saves you money and secures you the best job possible.
It’s all well and good to read a few good reviews online, but these days they are so easy to fake.
You would not buy a house without using a middleman like a real estate agent, so why risk the safety of your home and your family on a substandard contractor.
It would be great if we lived in a world where finding a good tradesmen was as easy as selecting the first one you came across in the local paper.
The fact of the matter is there are so many people out there just in it for a quick buck, that you really need to do your homework to make sure you are going to get the job done right.
Although there are some scammers looking for a free ride, there is a great community of arborist who are proud of their business and their industry. They will bend over backwards to make sure they give you the best service, advise and value for money.
