Tree Care Machinery Pty. Ltd. (TCM) has been servicing the South Australian tree care industry for over 30 years, providing a range of machinery and arborist equipment to make the care of trees more efficient and profitable.
The scope of our service ranges from initial recommendations, sale of machines and spare parts through delivery, training, service and rebuilding when required by safety legislation. We are the authorised South Australian dealer for Bandit wood chippers & stump grinders, Avant mini loaders, Hydralada EWP’s, Husqvarna outdoor products and a wide range of climbing and rigging equipment.
Tree Care Machinery also has an online store, bringing the very latest equipment from around the world to arborists, tree contractors and councils across Australia. Every item we sell has been trialled by our consulting arborists to ensure it complies with Australian Standards and is appropriate for Australian conditions. Our importing arm Bushwood Equipment Sales Pty. Ltd. (BES) continues to search for products that meet our quality standards and provide ‘value for money’ for our customers.
Several years ago TCM started hiring out machinery to a few customers when their machines or trucks were in for repair. We soon realised that this was a service the industry desired for many reasons, so we have now created Tree Care Hire Pt. Ltd. (TCH) which provides a range of speciality machines specifically for those in the tree care industry. Customers can hire a machine when:
- Their machine is being serviced or repaired
- They need a bigger machine than they own for a particular job
- They need a smaller machine than they own for a particular job
- They have a dangerous job that requires specialised machinery
- They need extra plant to keep up with an increased workload
The service has been well supported and we are very pleased that we have been able to provide the industry with a value added service that also makes our business more profitable.
Becoming involved in hire also highlighted to us the need for workers in the tree care industry to become trained. Through our training company Bushwood Training Academy Pty. Ltd. (BTA), we now offer specialised training for all workers in the Arboriculture industry. We are pleased to be working closely with Arboriculture Australia to help develop a new training package which more accurately reflects current methodology used in the industry.
As Arboriculture Australia continues to implement positive change in the tree care industry, Tree Care Machinery and its subsidiaries are proud to be involved in making Arboriculture a safer and more respected industry.
