About Tree Care PTA

Welcome to Tree Care PTA

Get To Know Us

Zero Tree Felling, A Tree Fellow and Urban Tree Care merged in 1997 as Tree Care Pta, combining their arboricultural knowledge to give our customers professional service and advice. The company was established in 1997 by Ernst Grobbelaar.

Being a ISA member and QTRA accredited company, we implemented training programs for all our employees. Our business ethos is to provide customers with arboricultural, entomological and experience based knowledge, backed with the lightest footprint approach and sensible solutions for their requirements.

From the beginning, it was based on the promise of providing superior quality tree care to the Pretoria area and providing opportunities for employees to develop their skills in tree care through continuing education and training. We are a growing company providing up to date training and technology to all our employees.

This ensures that the tree care service we provide to our clients will be of the highest quality.

We hold insurance and cover for Public liability through Mutual and Federal for an amount, up to R1 500 000. All our employees are registered on an annual basis with the Compensation Commissioner.
