Without a doubt, Bunya trees are the most fascinating tree of our Sunshine Coast area. Not only have they provided a rich source of food to people for tens of thousands of years, they have also been the basis of important rituals. While many Bunya trees have been cleared in the last few decades for their timber, it is promising to see a resurgence in their popularity. Many councils now actively maintain and protect them.

It's very rewarding when clients ask us to make and install nesting boxes. Tom made these boxes from hollow logs and hung them in some tall gum trees. If you live on the Sunshine Coast, and are interested in creating habitat trees in your garden for native wildlife, contact us. We are more than happy to help make the coast more wildlife friendly and sustainable. We are not just about tree care or tree lopping, but we are also passionate about looking after the habitat of native wildlife.
This is the best time of year to prepare for the upcoming storm season. Don't wait until trees become dangerous. Be proactive and have them pruned selectively. Have rotting branches, deadwood or overhanging branches removed before the Sunshine Coast storms roll in.
We came across this amazing ants nets in an old Banksia tree in the Noosa National Park. It is always amazing to encounter native wildlife on the Sunshine Coast. Even the smallest creatures! As a Sunshine coast arborist service, we always do our best to avoid disturbing native wildlife. This can involve arranging for wildlife catchers to relocate nests. Or waiting until it is no longer nesting season, and wildlife has moved on. It is a privilege to work on trees in the Sunshine Coast, and we do our best to respect the native inhabitants.
This beautiful flowing Banksia is an iconic Native Tree on the Sunshine Coast. You know your on the Sunshine Coast when you see this beautiful native plant growing among coastal heath. It flowers in winter and has foliage all year round. We love admiring our unique native trees on the Sunshine Coast. Tree appreciation is one of the best parts of being an arborist on the Sunshine Coast.
We spotted this amazing native olive tree (Olea Paniculata) on a bush walk today. It is a really nice native to have around the yard. And up the top lived a family of staghorns and Orchids. The Sunshine Coast has such a diverse range of native trees. From the incredibly unique and world famous heath bushlands around Coolum, to the lush forests of the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
An awesome thing about being an arborist is that you see the landscape in a new way. from the same angle as a bird or possum. I love working in Sunshine Coast trees because it is always a beautiful view.
It's a nice time of year to spot the flowering Autumn trees and shrubs like the Harpin Banksia (banksia Spinulosa var. collina). The Sunshine Coast has an awesome display of flowing natives.
