During the early 1990’s a deluge of severe weather events, resulted in significant increase in the demand for tree contractors.  Consequently, unscrupulous workers began operating to take advantage of insurance companies and home owners.

By 1993, a group of professional arborists created an inclusive and regulated nationwide association of stakeholders and allied professionals. The TCAA established a single-point of contact for insurance companies and the general public and regulated tree contractors to have minimum requirements regarding standards and licensing.

From these humble beginnings, the TCAA established a reliable national supplier of qualified tree contractors with safety, experience and trust as their core foundation.

Partnerships – NSW Code of Practice

The TCAA has been instrumental in collaborating and developing the NSW Safe Work Code of Practice, with a focus on safety, which is the strictest standard for tree work in Australia. The TCAA are continually establishing best practice and benchmarks for contractors and the arboricultural industry.


The TCAA  facilitate community relationships and educate the general public about industry regulation and the risks of hiring an unqualified tree contractor.

The TCAA work closely with tertiary education and peak industry organisations to develop educational materials which address the learning needs of tree contractors. The TCAA works closely with Skills Impact in the development of new training packages for the industry. The TCAA promotes the tree industry to government, relevant stakeholders and the general public
