Our People

A key contributor to our success is our people. They include more than 800 full-time equivalent team members, and scores of small business owners and their employees who sub-contract to Active Tree Services. Many of these people have developed long and successful careers as the company has expanded and gained a presence in all states and territories.

Our Values

With an overarching belief in the safety of employees and clients, Active utilises a behaviours model, that says as a company we will: Commit to achieving higher output – Consider, involve and develop our people – Actively manage our own and our customers’ risks to lowest practical level – Promote and encourage learning – Always provide value.

Our Community

As part of its commitment to the broader community, Active Tree Services supports a number of charities and not-for-profit organisations, that can be viewed here. Employees are encouraged to nominate organisations for inclusion as part of the Active Tree Services community engagement program, which they can do by contacting us.

Our Standards

Active Tree Services works to the highest quality, safety and environmental standards. We recognise that in addition to meeting and exceeding client expectations, we must also meet the expectations of local communities.

As part of our commitment to quality and the environment, Active Tree Services is serious about good arboriculture practices, and will always prune for the best health of the tree, whatever the circumstance.

Our History

Active Tree Services was founded in 1974 by Mark Willcocks to service residential customers in northern Sydney. Four years later, he began managing trees for Sydney councils.

By concentrating on client-focused service delivery, Mark grew the business and in 1979 he signed the company’s first contract with the NSW transmission corporation, Pacific Power (now TransGrid), to control vegetation under power lines.

Our Future

Active Tree Services is committed to maintaining its position as Australia’s leading vegetation management service.  As our relationships with customers mature, we continue to look for opportunities to develop more collaborative ways of working.

We constantly strive to minimise our impact on the environment, and to build an environmentally sustainable business.
