“Don’t Harm the Palm!”

Here is some free advice from CanYa's best arborist!

Stephen Tobin is one of CanYa’s arborists – or in more common terms a ‘tree surgeon‘. ┬áHe manages, maintains and cares for trees. Stephen is pretty handy around the garden, and along with tree-whispering can help with:

  • Weeding
  • Hedge trimming
  • Lawn mowing
  • Gutter clearing

As our provider of the week, we checked in with Stephen to get his top arborist/gardening tips.

CanYa’s Provider of the Week: Stephen Tobin

1. Don’t harm the palm

Stephen has been in the tree game for going on four years. One of the more memorable jobs – or challenges – as it turned out, was convincing a client to keep a neglected old palm tree. Originally he was called in to pull out the tree, but after a bit of┬áback and forth Stephen managed to┬áget her to agree to rejuvenating it instead. After some TLC, the tree stands tall and proud as the main feature of the garden. Working with what you’ve got often has stunning results. In the mood for more old trees? Check them out here.

2. Keep the customer happy

In his time as a service provider, the most important service Stephen offers is satisfaction. Stephen says he isn’t happy with his work, until the customer is.┬áHe does this by carefully consulting with his customers before, during and after the work is completed. He is happy to tweak and fix his work until the desired look is achieved. This of course includes making sure the site is spick and span before he leaves. Big tick!

3. License to arbor

What do you get when you add height, power tools and all sorts of weather conditions? A OH&S nightmare! But don’t worry, Stephen comes fully prepared for the dangers of his work, and has all the right tickets. Including:

  • Heavy Vehicle license
  • Work safely at heights card
  • License to perform high risk work
  • License to operate and maintain a chainsaw
  • White card
