The idea of Arborists Replanting started when Zac and Tarryn moved from busy Melbourne to a small beach town, Kiama, New South Wales.
Zac had worked for the past 12 years as a qualified arborist, subcontracting to other companies. Although he loved being an arborist, he didn’t like working for companies that removed big healthy trees for superficial reasons, so he started his own tree company, Kiama Tree Care.
With Kiama Tree Care taking off, it was then, Tarryn thought it would be a great idea if Zac planted a tree for every removal he did. Not only would it be a great way to advertise his new company but he would be able to give trees back to the environment.
Zac loved the idea but he wanted to take it a step further. He wanted every arborist to get involved and donate trees. This idea lit a flame in Tarryn, and Arborists Replanting came to life.
Arborists Replanting is catered to arborists. They aren’t you’re usual tree planting business. They ensure all of the trees donated are planted in areas that arborists have access to in the future. Bringing more work to arborists in Australia.
We like them big!
Which is why We only offer 4ft + Trees.
We have chosen to only offer 4ft – 6ft + trees after planting a mixture of sapling/tubestock and larger trees we found that many of the saplings didn’t survive or had barely grown versus the 4ft + trees which had grown substantially and were healthy. Therefore, it costs more to purchase a tree from us, than other generic tree donating companies because our trees are 5x taller. We prefer larger trees because the larger the tree, the more benefits it has to the environment.
Our Mission & Approach
We have two missions at Arborists Replanting:
The first is to improve our environment and combat climate change by giving the trees back to the Urban Forest.
We believe removing trees should be a last resort for arborists. Retaining existing trees is the best thing for the environment because the larger the tree the more benefits it provides. But, when a tree needs to be removed, we want to help arborists put them back!
The second is to help arborists:
- Create more work: by planting these trees in areas that arborists can access in the future. Most tree planting programs plant their trees in National Parks/Forests or council land. We make sure these trees are donated to schools, retirement villages and any Australian who wants a free tree in their garden. PLUS, arborists companies that donate trees, are 90% more likely to win quotes.
- Peace of mind: We know arborists are just trying to keep their customers happy but sometimes it takes a toll doing big tree removals. We give arborists an easy way to give back to the environment and feel good about it.
