Tree Removal & Stump Grinding in Geebung QLD!
As arborists, we at Arborclimb Brisbane love fun facts about trees. While many suburbs in Queensland are well-stocked in the tree and nature departments, very few are actually named after trees. Located in northern Brisbane, Geebung is named after the Persoonia tree. Also nicknamed “The Australian Christmas Tree,” the Persoonia tree is large and bushy. Unlike other trees that have defined branches and leaves, the Persoonia tree looks like a bush on top of a long tree trunk. The reason why Geebung and the Persoonia tree are connected is because of the Dharug language. The Darug people are indigenous Australians and they called the Persoonia tree “Geebung.” As you may guess- or know already from living there- Geebung is filled with Persoonia trees.
As far as tree fun facts go, the story of Geebung is by far one of our favourites. While the history of how Geebung was named is quite interesting, Geebung itself is a fascinating town. In fact, it has its own set of non tree-related fun facts! First off, It is the site of a train station that gives residents access to several different train lines. Second, it is home to several family-friendly attractions including a skate park. Lastly, a new 50-million-year-old species was discovered in Geebung just six years ago! If you are looking for an intriguing place to live, Geebung is worth looking into. While Geebung is truly interesting, this isn’t always for the best reasons.
Like many Australian suburbs, Geebung is filled with trees. In the case of Geebung, it is home to more Persoonia trees than anything else. Unfortunately, tree type does not matter when it comes to pesky trees. While trees are essential to life on earth, as they give out oxygen, the saying “too much of a good thing” rings true here. Our first priority at Arborclimb Brisbane is to keep trees healthy. However, we sometimes get there too late. If a disease has taken over a tree, tree removal is the best option. On the other hand, trees that may be “shedding” too much or losing branches might just be in need of some TLC in the form of tree pruning or trimming. As skilled arborists, we evaluate each tree on a case-by-case basis and even provide official arborist reports to help you better understand the state of your tree.
Each and every employee at Arborclimb Brisbane is a qualified, experienced, and insured arborist. We only hire the best of the best.

Don’t hesitate to reach out for any tree-related questions or concerns.
