Check the contractor's qualifications
A professional contractor holds the right qualifications and demonstrates they have the knowledge, skills and experience to carry out works without damaging property or injuring people.
Tree work contractors usually have at least one person within the business who holds a:
- Certificate II in Arboriculture (horticulture) to carry out the work at the ground level
- Certificate III in Arboriculture (horticulture) to supervise tree climbing activities.
If you require a tree assessment, your local council, TAA or AA can help you engage an arborist who holds a Diploma of Arboriculture and can provide a written report.
