Welcome to Arboriculture Australia™

Arboriculture Australia™ is the peak national body for professional tree workers, arborists, tree managers, urban forestry workers and utility vegetation managers across Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. Arboriculture Australia works in partnership with the various State and Territory industry bodies to improve our industry and promote the value of trees.

The organisation shares a global responsibility to raising the public awareness of the importance of trees in our society. Arboriculture Australia™ is the organiser of world class events such as the Branched Out climbing competition, the annual national conference and a range of other training workshops and industry networking events.
