Urban Forestry and Arboriculture

Cities across the globe are expanding rapidly, with increasing pressure on green spaces and trees, and negative impacts on liveability and well-being. Abiotic and biotic tree disorders, driven by a changing climate and increasing trade, are causing greater stress on trees. It is therefore of utmost importance that we develop tools that enable cost-effective, rapid, and sustainable management of urban forests.

Over the past decade ArborCarbon has been engaged by some of the world’s most liveable cities to improve their urban forest and tree management using innovative and effective methods.

Urban Vegetation Monitoring

World leaders in this field, ArborCarbon has now delivered on numerous projects for local and state government agencies across the globe to enable successful design and implementation of Urban Forest and Greening Plans. Unlike other companies, ArborCarbon has developed sensors such as the ArborCam, acquisition methods, processing techniques, along with field-based monitoring methods, that enable concurrent and precise measurement of the cover, condition and surface temperature of vegetation.

We specialise in the development and implementation of quantitative measures of tree health for precise monitoring, enabling early and effective management.


Arboriculture and Urban Forest Science includes the proper selection, planting and care of trees. We specialize in the diagnosis of tree health disorders, selection of trees for unique urban spaces, and sustainable tree care management. We have been engaged by landscape designers to select trees for high-profile award-winning landscapes, and implement programs for the management of tree health.

We are qualified in both TRAQ and QTRA to ensure risk assessment based on robust methods. We pride ourselves on bringing a truly scientific approach to arboriculture. We are independent consultants with no affiliation with tree pruning or removal companies.
