“He that plants trees, loves others besides himself” – Thomas Fuller

Max Tree Services are Melbourne’s premier tree treatment and removal specialists. And while chopping down trees is a necessary part of the business, it’s their passion for conservation and rehabilitation that makes them stand taller than the rest

What makes Max Tree Services different from other tree loppers in Melbourne?

Max and his team of green thumbs and hearts live by three rules when it comes to providing their service to you:

What’s best for the health of the tree?

What’s best for the health of the surrounding garden?

What details do you need to make an informed decision?

Max’s philosophy is simple. He’ll give you the most honest advice, so you get the best result for your garden. Sometimes this means starting reparation work to fix the soil, or nothing will grow strong and healthy. Sometimes it means trying to improve the health of the tree, with removal as a last resort. Whatever the situation, you’ll be provided with a detailed quote that outlines the services required.

Max can quote the following:

How can tree loppers promote rehabilitation and conservation?

Cutting down trees is a necessary part of Max Tree Services, but it’s not their favourite part. They’d much prefer to be creating ecosystems than tearing them down. Often, they’ll turn up to properties where the trees are dead or diseased and are now a hazard. Sometimes trees need to be lopped for other safety reasons, including creating firebreaks for the summer season. Sometimes it’s just that the wrong tree was planted in the wrong place and now needs to be removed.

Whatever the reason, for every tree that is removed, Max offers a more suitable replacement to be planted on your property. They offer a one for one replacement from their own native stock, grafted and cultivated by Max.

This isn’t just about being a nice guy. It’s about preserving the industry and creating a sustainable future. By offering a suitable replacement, it helps protect the habitat of native fauna, encourages greater natural growth and increases soil stability. Max also includes a free maintenance plan to check on the growth of the replanted trees.

The health and quality of the soil is such an important part of healthy tree development. It’s why Max Tree Services offer a soil assessment as part of their rehabilitation packages. Without decent soil, any trees planted will struggle to grow into healthy, mature specimens. Soil conditioning returns the soil to its optimal health by activating dormant bacteria. This creates a greater chance of long-term success.

Soil health is the key reason that Max Tree Services only use bio-oil for their chainsaws and equipment. Bio-oil prevents the contamination of soil, plants, waterways and skin.

When the team from Max’s have finished on your property, it’s left so you would never know they were there. All pools are covered so they don’t get filled with leaf litter, mulch and debris. All rubbish is cleared, and Max’s is a smoke-free environment, so there are no annoying cigarette butts being stamped out and left in the ground.

Max Tree Services are your tree lopping experts

Not only experts at removing trees and plants from your property, Max looks to make sure you have all the information you need to get the best advice. Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions to help you get started.

How do I get a quote?

All quotes are completed electronically. Using the latest technology, they record tree location, tree health, photos and other details onto their system. No mud maps on a scrap of paper here! The technology allows Max to keep a highly accurate record of works on your property as well as a detailed history and maintenance program for the health of each tree.

What are your payment terms?

Max Tree Services accepts payment either over the phone or electronically on-site.

What safety equipment do you use?

Safety is paramount on any site and the team at Max’s complies with current safety standards for equipment and PPE. This includes clothing and footwear, head, ear and eye protection, safety harnesses and spotters.

Can you help me with my permits?

Each council requires different applications and permits to remove significant trees. It’s essential that your arborist or tree lopper is familiar with the differences for each council, as well as the expected waiting times to receive the permits. Max Tree Services will take responsibility for all your planning permits with council from start to finish.

What insurance do you have?

Max Tree Services is fully insured to the value of $10M with unlimited height restrictions. You can rest assured your most valuable assets are protected from unexpected events.

Max Tree Services gives back to the community

Blessed with a healthy and happy family, Max Tree Services is a generous supporter of the Make A Wish foundation. A percentage of each job is donated to this not for profit organisation that provides seriously-ill children between the ages of 5-18 with opportunities for hope, joy and resilience to keep fighting.

  • Max was one of the first to reply to my enquiry, he attended the property and discussed what we needed. He was courteous, organised and committed and he and his team provided an excellent service in removing 10 huge cypress trees without a problem in minimal time. He also surprisingly took the time and effort to meet and discuss the removal with the neighbours at the back. I will be engaging him for landscaping services as well.
