About Us

Horticulturist / Arborist

Hi my name is Craig, thanks for taking a look at my website. As the proud owner of 2nd Generation trees I would like to introduce myself and give you some more information on my family owned and operated business in Adelaide.

After 21 years in local government as a Horticulturist/Arborist I felt the time was right to take my experience and passion for trees into my own business. I am extremely passionate about the health of our trees and keeping them safe so I provide a comprehensive all round professional tree service.

I have over 20 years hands on experience as an Adelaide Arborist in a broad range of activities including Tree assessment and inspections, tree removal, formative tree pruning, pruning in close proximity to power lines, young tree selection and advanced/mature tree planting and significant/regulated tree legislation and management. As former team leader of the Tree Unit at the City of Burnside I was privileged enough to work with some of Adelaide’s biggest, best and oldest remnant trees and instigate Veteran Tree management.


To compliment my many years of hands on experience I also hold a Diploma in Arboriculture, Cert III in Horticulture and Cert II in Electrotechnology and hold all the appropriate licenses related to this industry.

Our staff are qualified and trained in Arboriculture, safe work practices and chainsaw use and hold all appropriate equipment and safety qualifications.


Safety is our number one priority and is never compromised. We strive to be the best we can be and deliver the best service possible, constantly continuing to improve. Implementing Safe Operating Procedures, Standard Work Methods and Risk assessments helps us in achieving our success.


We have full public liability insurance of $20,000,000 and are more than happy to produce copies of all our documentation before work commences.


At 2nd Generation Trees we are committed to conduct the most professional job possible that is of a high quality standard and affordable.  At every job our aim is to exceed our clients expectations with prompt, courteous and professional conduct whilst ensuring your vegetation and property are well cared for and left in a tidier condition than when we arrived. As the owner I still do a lot of the work myself to ensure that you get what you have asked for.

When you invite somebody to come into your home and give some advice, all you want is knowledge and trust. With a trusted position in local authority as my background I pride myself in offering this service.
