The Company

Though our company's origins date back to the early '80s, Trees South Africa has really begun leading the market in more recent years. Perhaps it's due to a decision we took in 2004 that saw us focus on the production and relocation of large trees. Maybe it's that our commitment to research and advanced techniques has never faltered. We think it's because, in our industry, experience develops at the speed trees grow.

We are members of The Cape Green Forum, the Institute for Landscape Architecture in South Africa (ILASA), The South African Landscapers Institute (SALI) and the International Society for Arboriculture (ISA) whose authoritative standards we strictly adhere to.

Our wholesale nurseries are the benchmark in production of large, container-grown indigenous and exotic trees ranging from 2.5 to 15m in height. We expertly relocate, rescue and store large trees and, with our dedicated team, we ensure they flourish.

All these values and attention to detail have been instilled by owner and founder, Dag Willems. A professional forest ecologist and arborist (BSc Forestry US) with nearly 3 decades of experience, Dag's skill and understanding are unparalleled. He has been the regional manager of indigenous forests for the Western Cape Department of Forestry and co-author of multiple internationally published scientific papers on indigenous forests and sustainable timber harvesting.

While Trees South Africa is less focused on trees in their natural habitat and more on ornamental trees in, often times, the most unnatural of urban and semi-urban environments, science will always be in our roots. In fact, Dag continues to consult to organisations including the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Cape Town City Council, and various universities.

Passion, patience and professionalism are qualities you'll find in everyone who works at Trees South Africa. Our experience and high standard of work has ensured a phenomenal success rate. And, with our extensively experienced Arboriculture Consulting Professionals you can truly sit back in the care of mature tree experts.
