“Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary regularly uses the services of Habi-Tec to maintain, preserve and enhance mature trees within the park. Steve and his team have always delivered high quality work and we highly recommend their services. They are passionate about creating and preserving wildlife habitat and this shows in the quality of workmanship they provide.”






“We received Council approval to remove 5 dangerous Eucalypt species for safety reasons.
Rather than completely removing all the trees we engaged Habi-Tec to reduce the canopies back to a safe level to stop the risk of limb failure and form 4 habitat stags with 6 carved hollows creating valuable breeding space  for the animals that depend on tree hollows for shelter.
Steve discovered a tree on our property already housed a colony of microbats nesting within a natural cavity.  He conserved this tree without disturbance to the microbats whilst making it safe for us home-owners below.
The team was very prompt with meeting onsite, arranging a quote, helpful with all my questions and very quick to complete the job to an exceptionally high standard. I was impressed with their accuracy and the care they took not to damage the remaining vegetation below.
Thank you so much for your great work, we will be recommending you to everyone.  We would love more people to become aware of the importance of habitat trees as part of our ecosystem.  Its clear that Steve and the whole team at Habi-Tec are passionate about regenerating lost habitat and we are very pleased to have been made aware of this creative and practical solution to provide more habitat for our native species.”




“Thanks to Steve and Ashley at Habi-Tec for creating a wonderful habitat in a tree which we previously would of had fully removed until we discovered the amazing work you guys are able to do in assisting our precious wildlife.”



“The City of Gold Coast has engaged Habi-Tec to activate, promote, manage and create wildlife habitat within its mature tree population, wi th great success. As a pilot programme to promote local biodiversity and responsibly manage the cities green assets, the City of Gold Coast is proud to be associated with Habi-Tec.”





I am completely inspired by Steve and his arborist team @habitec_arb. They create artificial hollows to replicate natural habitats, housing native birds and animals. They passionately challenge unethical processes commonly used within the industry. A true example of wildlife warriors. This is where I source the wood for my succulent planters. Rather than put beautiful pieces of white mahogany, bloodwood, ironbark and jacaranda through the chipper, he gives it to me to make karasuccs




“Steve and his team have created a huge range of hollows in our tree and already we have seen an increase in the wildlife actively using the three. Very professional service and a great alternative to completely removing the tree.”

“Our habitat stag is magnificent. Your crew did an amazing job – such a nice bunch – and they really went the extra mile or two to achieve a brilliant outcome. We are very impressed. Please thank them again.

Thanks so much for your great service.”





“We had a large gum that was dead after being struck by lightening. We looked around for arborists who would be able to help us shorten the height but preserve it for animals to use. This seemed impossible until I met Steve. Steve and his team did an awesome job of putting 5 hollows into the tree which are attracting lorikeets a week later. They also did a great job cleaning the area and other parts of our acreage as well. Thanks for great service. Would highly recommend and would be happy to use again.”
