About Us

Habi-Tec is a South East Queensland based, family owned and operated Arboricultural and Consultancy firm. We are dedicated to researching and improving wildlife habitat quality and health and diversity in urban and natural areas.

Habi-Tec was launched in 2013 as the first specialised artisan habitat tree company in the region.

Drawing upon many years of professional experience within the Australian and British arboriculture, urban forestry and tree service industries – Habi-Tec owner Steve Collom and his likeminded team, have combined their passion for trees and wildlife with their expertise as professional tree climbers and consultants.

Habi-Tec have created, improved, and activated hundreds of tree hollows throughout the wider Gold Coast City region, and further developed tree hollows and improved habitat sites for Queensland National Parks, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Local State Governments, green groups, developers, project managers and private stakeholders.

Today, Habi-Tec is proud to be the region’s industry leader
in ethical tree pruning, artificial tree hollow creation, natural
nest box construction, veteran tree care and tree habitat
management and consultancy.


Habi-Tec is fully committed to practicing and promoting best practices in everything we do. Our team are passionate about the environment and the wildlife we share it with. This is just one of the reasons why we refuse to compromise on our
high ethical standards. It’s who we are and what we believe sets us apart from others.

Habi-Tec spend time with all of their clients in order to gain a full understanding of their requirements to make a detailed evaluation to secure the best outcome for all parties involved.

We take the time to recycle as much timber as possible, whether it’s given to the local wood turning club, wildlife carers for the animal enclosures or to local arts and craft producers.

Habi-Tec only use environmentally friendly oils that have been awarded the German ‘Blue Angel’ ecology mark and the European Eco-Label.
