Back in the day

Growing up in the bush meant that Gary Dickie spent a lot of time outdoors and climbing trees. While becoming an arborist might seem like a strange choice for someone who’s passionate about the natural environment, it’s important to remember that the job is just as much about caring for trees and optimising their growth in urban areas, as it is removing those that pose a risk to people or are in poor health.

Together with his wife, Judy, Gary built on his reputation of hard work, reliability and great communication to bring Dickie’s Tree Service to where it is today – one of WA’s oldest and most established tree surgeon companies. Their son, Cameron, is also a key member of the team, and while the company has expanded to employ over 40 team members, Dickie’s Tree Service continues to be family-owned and operated, and their values remain the same.


In addition to Gary’s extensive experience, Dickie’s Tree Service has many long-term employees who have enhanced their own skills through Gary’s knowledge.

    Katie, South Perth

    ‘We are thrilled with the results and all the neighbours around us we were impressed too. A few of them were out and about that morning and came to visit our backyard to see the great results. Could you please pass on our thanks to everyone and also to Gary Dickie for coming out to do the quote, late one evening.’


    ‘They got it spot on and did a great job in a timely manner but the main thing for me is other than the trees looking different you could not tell somebody had been in there as the area was nice and clean. I also got feedback from my landscape contractor this morning who complimented their work, once again thank you!!’

    Fabian Edwards

    ‘Thanks for the wonderful job Dickies Trees did in the removal of our trees. Fantastic service from beginning to end. From the first phone call, to the guys being on site, you have been friendly, professional, thorough and helpful.’

    Liz H

    ‘Thank you so much for the job you did at my house this week. I’m sorry the tree was not climbable and I should have called earlier. I am so impressed that you felled it with perfect precision in the backyard. With huge appreciation for your skilled work. Big respect. And as always you do a great job cleaning up debris afterwards.’


    ‘Just want to say thanks for the Dickies team…They did a fantastic job. When almost finished I asked them to cut back a hibiscus a bit more and they did without complaining. But best of all, when Lucky the 5-year-old mental kelpie cross that lives here got out and ran across the road, Aaron followed him so that when I got there with lead I was able to catch him. Beyond the call of duty. Well done Dickies for your terrific staff. Many thanks, see you next year.’

    Michele K, Nedlands
