The Tree Contractors Association of Australia’s mission is to promote professional tree services with Safety, Experience and Trust.



Our aim is to improve and develop best practices and standards in the Arboricultural Industry to enable sustainable management.

Our objective is to protect the safety and health of people and the integrity of the tree industry by the development of an industry license.


To be a TCAA Licensed Arborist, you must:

• Be Fully Insured
• Be Experienced and Trained
• Be Annually Audited
• Adhere to Safework and TCAA Code of Practice

A TCAA licensed arborist has a higher standard of knowledge and experience.

This has been implemented to assist the clients in making the right decision when selecting a suitably qualified arborist and tree company.
