About Us

Bohmer’s (a climbing name given to Director and Chief Arborist Clive Woodnutt which means ‘Man of the Trees’) Tree Care is an innovative and award-winning, locally owned family business with over 30 years international arboriculture experience.

We pride ourselves on providing clients with modern, professional and safe arboriculture services to the highest of industry standards and we are recognised and respected for our expertise and approach to every job we carry out.

One of our primary goals is to perform our services in an eco-friendly manner and reduce our clients’ environmental footprint. In fact, we are anti-lopping and removing a tree is actually the last resort for us – we’d much rather educate people about why they should preserve these big beauties.

As a green ‘enviro-aware’ business, we strive to protect, preserve and conserve the environment.

Environmental preservation and safety are two of our core values and we make a point of incorporating them into our service standards and work practices.

Bohmer’s employ only experienced and qualified arborists and all works are carried out in accordance with Australian Standards.

We are located in Wollongong within the Illawarra enabling us to service all areas within the Illawarra Southern Sydney, Southern Highlands and the South Coast.

Supporting Charity

Bohmer’s are proud to support a range of community projects such as the award-winning NSW/QLD charity Need a Feed. We are passionate about ‘giving back to the community who supports us’ and donate money plus donate all profits from our mulch to this well deserving organisation, which assists feed people in need.

Our Approach

One of our main objectives is to be eco-friendly and reduce our client’s environmental footprint. We try to minimize disturbances to wildlife and their habitat and recycle as much waste as possible – plus ‘upcycle’ the wood for further use. As a green business, we strive to protect, preserve and conserve our environment.

Our knowledge of tree biology enables us to minimise the stresses placed on trees whilst we work on them. We aim to retain, treat and maintain trees wherever possible, however if removal is required we will advise options for replanting.

Wherever possible we encourage the use of recycled material that arises from the work. Logs can be cut for firewood and mulch can be directly onto your garden beds (using our state-of-the-art chipper) to improve soil, particularly  around the base of the trees where it can act as a fertilizer and reduce soil compaction.

We also donate wood to various local men’s sheds for ‘upcycling’ into beautiful hand carved items or local school and community garden projects.

We do not hack or lop trees as this is considered unacceptable pruning practice – all our works are carried out in accordance with The Australian Standard 4373-2007 Pruning of Amenity Trees.

Environment

Our main objective is to be eco-friendly and reduce our client’s environmental footprint. We try to minimize disturbances to wildlife and their habitat and recycle as much waste as possible. As a green business, we strive at protecting, preserving and conserving the environment.

Our knowledge of tree biology enables us to minimise the stresses placed on trees whilst we work on them. We aim to retain, treat and maintain trees wherever possible, however if removal is required we will advise options for replanting.

Wherever possible we encourage the use of recycled material that arises from the work. Logs can be cut for firewood and mulch can be prepared to ameliorate soil, especially around the base of the trees where it can act as a fertilizer and reduce soil compaction.

We use an eco-friendly state-of-the-art chipper which enables us to easily access and direct mulch onto properties and uses tracks which minimises impact to the environment.

We also use vegetable oil in our chainsaw operations which minimises the environmental impact on local waterways.

We identify native fauna issues and habitats prior to commencing works and work to protect tree wildlife.

We also remove debris and rubbish from all our work sites – and have a strong reputation for leaving properties in excellent condition.

Testimonials

Our work with Bohmer’s Tree Care, with Clive, Natasha and their team, has been an amazing community networking addition to our award winning school garden.

We were thrilled when Clive and his team arrived with free mulch and interesting logs to add to our indigenous garden. As soon as Clive drove away there were kids playing on and over them all! They look so great in our new learnscape area and their kindness and generosity have been much appreciated.

That was beyond our expectations in terms of cost savings and the speed with which we accomplished our goal of completing our project. Thanks for keeping an eye out for us! Great job!
