Whatever the project, if your tree needs us, we will be there.
At King Landscapes, we relish the chance to provide professional tree services to our commercial clients. We love the diversity that comes with commercial tree work; from rooftop palm cleaning, to animal enclosures at wildlife sanctuaries, there is never a dull moment!
In this blog, we are going to talk about three somewhat different, commercial jobs which may help to inspire you when it comes to your next project.
Iconic Surfers Paradise Canary Island Date Palm Transplant Project
Surfers Paradise has been known for many years for it’s Canary Island Date Palms. These iconic palm trees even made up the Surfers Paradise logo back in the late 1990s. The Surfers palms are as much a part of the Surfers spirit as Cavill Mall or Surfers Paradise Beach.
In 2013 we were privileged to work as part of the Gold Coast Light Rail Project to make sure these spectacular palms were cared for during the Gold Coast Light Rail build process. It was decided that the best course of action to allow full access to the site, was to remove the trees and replant them once the tram lines and stations were built.
The process of removing these 20-metre tall giants was planned meticulously by our team. Our team of Qualified Arborists were able to use their experience and professional skills to determine the best methods for the successful transplant of the trees.
The trees were then stored on-site at our tree farm in Mudgeeraba for several months before being painstakingly replanted. These palms are now enjoying a second life in their iconic location.
Top Golf Tree Supply
Top Golf is the newest theme park experience on the Gold Coast, combining a golf driving range with a bar and food service. This style of venue is unique in Australia but very popular in other parts of the world.
The project managers of the Top Golf Development contacted our team to assist with the choice, supply, delivery and planting of a variety of different trees and shrubs. Our team used a combination of Cuban Royal Palms, Pandanus, Little Gems and Eumundi Palms to give the site a distinct “Florida” feel. The use of established trees in this setting also made the new build appear more established.
Emporium Hotel Borer Eradication and Palm Cleaning
Working at the top of the 21st-floor roof garden at the Emporium Hotel in Southbank was absolutely a high light for our team (excuse the pun!). It is a good thing that our crew are not afraid of heights as the Canary Island Date Palms that are located on the top of the Emporium Hotel stretch way into the skyline.
For this project, our team needed to diagnose and treat borers that had taken up residence in these spectacular statement palms. Professional vegetation management is a core component of what we do as arboricultural professionals. We were able to clean the palms so that they once again looked as spectacular as they could, whilst eliminating borers from the trees.
Managing vegetation and providing appropriate cleaning and maintenance of established trees is essential for the protection of the asset. Our services include ongoing maintenance, to ensure that borers are kept at bay and trees not only look great but are healthy as well.

We pride ourselves on being able to provide a wide range of tree services to our commercial clients. Experience tells us that commercial projects can be rather unusual! Feel free to talk to us about what your project may need, no matter how left of centre.
