    When knowledge and experience count.

    Citywide’s Tree Services team work across an incredibly diverse range of Australian landscapes. From world heritage listed gardens to the salt scrub of sandy foreshores: our people have an unparalleled knowledge of plant types and modern maintenance techniques. That knowledge, skill and experience was tested on the largest municipal tree mapping and planting project in New South Wales.

    Making the customer dollar go further.

    Sourcing plants from an established network of quality commercial nurseries across Australia, Citywide is one of Australia’s largest purchasers of trees with significant buying power. Our horticulturalists match type of tree to the most appropriate provider and then purchase according to cost and tree quality. Our customers enjoy better quality trees (Citywide demands the best selection), better prices for trees and better level of knowledge as a result of specialised briefings by suppliers.

    Catering to the diverse requirements of Sydney, Citywide’s arborists undertook a comprehensive procurement exercise, selecting plants from 2m to 7m tall across native, exotic and palm species.

    Advanced mapping, management and maintenance.

    The most important outcome of Citywide’s service provision to the City of Sydney has been the dramatic increase in the health of the city’s trees as a direct result of the advanced auditing and management systems the company has put in place. Prior to the contract of Citywide’s services there was no accurate database recording location and health of trees. Now Citywide’s TRAX system records a range of tree data and drives programmed maintenance. Priority is given to urgent tasks without a reduction in maintenance levels and performance is audited on a monthly cycle.

    A computerised asset management and scheduled maintenance system, Citywide TRAX is transforming the business of local government in Australia. Offering unparalleled control and visibility of works to its customers, TRAX also enables Citywide to optimise service delivery by accurately deploying specialists, prioritising works, recording visual data and producing comprehensive reports.
