Positive Google Reviews

Leon and the team at Stump’d Tree Services are renowned for being customer-centric.

Qualified and Insured

An arborist in Canberra needs to be qualified and fully insured. The owner of Stump’d Tree Services, Leon Ciura, is a qualified arborist who trained at the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT).

In-depth Knowledge and Experience

A good arborist in Canberra will understand the local flora, geography, and weather conditions (particularly wind patterns), as well as have the ability to identify dangerous trees, termite infestations, and various tree diseases. Leon and the team at Stump’d Tree Services are highly familiar with Canberra’s native tree species, wind patterns, and unique urban terrain.

The Correct Equipment

A professional arborist in Canberra requires access to quality cutting equipment, safety harnesses, personal protective equipment (PPE), a wood chipper, a stump grinder, and an elevated work platform (EWP) – not to mention a suitable vehicle.
