As a planned city, trees are central to the character and formation of the nation’s capital. Trees line the lake, bike paths and streets throughout the city, bringing the natural aesthetic of the land to the forefront. As a result, Canberrans have grown to love and appreciate their trees. Protecting and preserving healthy trees is a priority, while assessing and removing unhealthy trees is understood to be an equally important part of the lifecycle of the ecosystem.
This is why Jim’s Trees has become the most trusted name in the tree service industry in Canberra. We care about your trees as much as you do; we’ll go the extra mile to make sure your trees and home are treated with the highest quality care and professional attention.

Canberra trees are resilient and adaptable due to the ever-changing weather and increasing effects of climate change. With an annual average of 100 days of frost, 108 days of rain and 7.6 hours of daily sunshine, Canberra has a particularly diverse climate.
Recent reports commissioned by the ACT Government have revealed the need to increase the city’s tree canopy coverage due to the rise in temperatures from climate change. For this reason, it’s more important than ever to practice responsible tree ownership and be conscious about preserving the health of our tree population.
