why choose us?
Assured Tree Care is owned and operated by Russell Shepherd who has over 18 years experience in the tree industry. He is a diploma qualified arborist and is passionate about all things trees. His knowledge extends from teaching aboriculture at the TAFE level, his vast climbing background and industry experience. He is also Vice President of the Victorian Tree industry Organisation (VTIO). Our motto is to ‘promote longevity among trees’ and we also have a strong focus on plant health. You can learn more about this over at our plant health page.
Assured Tree Care was recently named Leader Community Newspapers Tradie of the Quarter. Watch the video below:
“Work with arborists to keep your trees beautiful, healthy and hazard free.“
At Assured Tree Care we take pride in giving our clients the best level of professional Arboricultural services to meet their needs. We have a holistic approach to the value and care of trees, and their addition to the landscape.
We are committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy workplace for all, working within the guidelines of OH&S legislation. This partnered with the highest quality workmanship and a professional dedicated team, our clients can rest assured they are in good hands.
Russell’s insights into modern arboriculture has led him to become an active committee member of the Victorian Tree Industry Organisation (VTIO) as well as Assured Tree Care being a sponsor. He also has an Arboriculture Australia Membership and recently has a place on the National Arboriculture Industry Education Panel working with AgriFood Skills Australia.
Being part of the VTIO also allowed us the opportunity in 2016 to volunteer our time to assist in works to save the endangered Swift
Parrot in Tasmania. We were part of a large group who helped install new nesting boxes and carve out hollows to create habitats for these birds.
This commitment to conservation is something we are proud to be involved in and look forward to working on other similar work in the future.

We also have a strong commitment to the ongoing training of our staff through trade demonstrations, on and off the job training, and association with local TAFE institutions. Our staff are encouraged to undertake courses periodically to ensure new skills are developed to ensure Assured Tree Care is at the forefront of arboriculture.
