Trees today is a dedicated tree transplanting company that has been buying selling and moving trees for 25 years
My name is Stuart Courteny and I am the founder of Trees Today, I have worked in the landscaping and earthmoving industry for over 30 years.
Trees today offers a rare service… a combination of my 25 years of experience, with a hands on professional approach to the delicate process of transplanting and transporting mature trees from one location to another with minimal stress
Trees today was born out of another business, Australian landscapes & earthworks that I started in the early 90s.
Having prior experience transplanting trees on landscaping projects and having the equipment, I started transplanting trees for landscapers and developers, this rapidly developed into the main stay of the business’s and in 1999 trees today was founded.
At that time the demand for people wanting to purchase mature palms was at its peak, then the trend swung towards architectural specimen trees.
This was on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland so native coastal pandanus trees were in high demand as were frangipani trees. Especially the ever green Singapore frangipani and at one point they made up around 90% of our sales. I collected hundreds of beautiful frangipani specimens up to 5 meters in height and width from all corners of Queensland.
These trees can now be seen in public places like the emporium in Brisbane, the Tennyson tennis centre in Brisbane, the Hasting St refurbishment Noosa Heads and many other developments and private homes through out SE Queensland and beyond.
As well as buying and selling specimen trees, the transplanting service is now becoming the main focus for the business, this now sees us traveling to projects across Australia.
