Max Tree Services Melbourne

Meet the team that do more than remove trees

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.  The second-best time is now.” – Chinese proverb

Who are Max Tree Services?

Based in the leafy Melbourne suburb of Ferntree Gully, Max Tree Services is the passion project and family business created by Max Osman and his wife Emma. A life-long lover of the outdoors, Max began his tree services business in 2015 to provide a sustainable future for himself, his family and the natural environment he lives in.

An advocate for rehabilitation and conservation, Max Tree Services have the vision to provide a greener, healthier environment for their children and their children’s, children. Having worked in the industry for over 10 years, Max is continually learning and studying the latest advances in horticultural best practice. This continued education has seen Max’s business develop from tree removals to complete tree and soil services. It provides him with greater knowledge to deliver the best advice to his clients.

Max continues to grow his team by employing residents to Ferntree Gully and its surrounding suburbs and engaging with qualified tree specialists from Melbourne. His team on the ground take pride in their local area knowledge as they continue to develop their skill base working with more experienced professionals. Servicing the greater suburbs of Melbourne, Max Tree Services cover a wide variety of areas including:

Ferntree Gully










How are Max Tree Services different from other companies?

Whenever Max starts working with a new customer, there are two questions he always asks:

  • “What do you want the overall result to be?”
  • “What’s the best solution for the natural environment?”

Client’s will often call to have a tree removed because they think it’s the easiest or only solution. But after meeting the owner and inspecting the site, this isn’t always the case. Often, there are options that haven’t been considered and rather than go for the quick and easy solution, Max will talk you through what you can do successfully.

It’s through these conversations that Max Tree Services has quickly established themselves as a company that is:

HONEST: Max Tree Services are looking to establish long-term relationships with their clients. They’re not looking to take your money and chop. The best way to do this by being completely honest with you about your garden needs, how best to deliver it, and what the total price will be. There are no secrets when it comes to working with Max and his team. There are no hidden costs in the quotes. What you see is exactly what you get.

PROFESSIONAL: The team at Max Tree Services pride themselves on their level of professionalism. They’re aware that they’re entering your personal space and they treat the site with respect. There’s no smoking or swearing on the job. The clean-up isn’t finished until you’re happy with how it looks. They care greatly that you’re satisfied with the job they’ve done and work hard to make it happen.

EXPERIENCED: Anyone can pick up a chainsaw and advertise themselves as a tree removal company in Melbourne. But there’s more to taking down trees than just dropping them. You want someone who understands how to keep the tree healthy if it’s only a limb being removed. You want someone who understands how it will fall to protect the rest of the vegetation. But most importantly, you want someone who understands what the impact will be on the rest of the garden and provide options to improve conditions and outlook. As a qualified horticulturist who has been working in the industry for over 10 years, Max provides this to his clients.

COMMUNITY-MINDED: Max Tree Services recognises the importance of giving back to the community that you’re a part of. From creating job opportunities to train local residents, to sponsoring local events or sports teams, or donating to the Make A Wish Foundation, being active within the community is high on Max’s list of priorities. This sense of community means that Max’s clients know he’s there for the long-haul, not just a summer season.

FAMILY DRIVEN: Whether it’s the one at home or the business one they’re creating, family is one of the drivers for Max and his team. With a young family to support and by employing team members with similar family values, it reinforces the need to create an environment that can be appreciated for future generations. With similar goals to create a sustainable industry, the team work hard to first cause no harm, but also to repair any damage that may have been done in the past.

Don’t just take our word for it

  • Stephanie Horgen

    We highly recommend Max Tree Services.
    Max, Emma and their team were very professional. From the initial assessment of the work to be done to the completion within the agreed time frame, they were very friendly and courteous. Our garden was left clean and tidy after the extensive work: removing a large tree, removing the stump and trimming additional tree branches.

  • Kate

    Max's team was awesome, they were very quick and did an awesome job. Max was also great. He was really helpful and made sure everything ran as smooth as possible. I definitely recommend Max's tree services

    Max's Green Tree service recently removed 6 dead trees from my property. I was very happy with the degree of expertise and professionalism showed as well as the fact that he was a very nice person to deal with. The cost was amazingly reasonable and I would not hesitate to recommend his business.

  • Werner R

    Max gave me a fair and competitive quote.
    Cheaper than most but as good as Tree fellers I had working for me in the past. His team started as promised and did an efficient and clean job.
    Can recommend Max Services and would use them again next time.

  • Helen

    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.
