The QAA Register of Approved Contractors & Consultants is proudly supported by our Industry Support Partner Fitzpatrick & Co Insurance.

The production of this register is in direct response to increasing demand from the public, and from local and state government for assistance in locating Qualified Arborists: anyone can advertise as an Arborist, or buy a chainsaw, and it is very difficult for a layperson to assess the claims of a contractor that they do not know. 

To be included in this register each company must comply with the QAA’s Criteria List. It should be noted however, that the QAA has not assessed the quality of work carried out by those included, and makes no claims on their behalf, other than that they have met the following criteria.
