About us

Welcome to the story behind Proleaf! We’ll try not to blabber on too much about who we are, how we started and what we do. For those of you that are interested in knowing a bit more about us, here goes nothing.

Proleaf, as it is today, was founded in late 2018 by our leader in battle, David Gerhardsen. Dave (pictured) had the vision to own and operate a professional stump grinding service covering all of metropolitan Melbourne and that he did! We now service many domestic and commercial clients across the city including local authorities, schools, contractors and of course homeowners.

You may be wondering, where are we based? We operate out of our depot in Pascoe Vale and travel across the city day to day. We are a local business, run by a local team (although Dave is a Pom!). We work with many other local businesses including property developers, real estate agents, tree services and more.

Dave has a long history of experience in the tree industry in the private sector and the public domain. This experience has been crucial to us as a company in providing a great service, implementing our safety protocols and operating at a high level. We are innovative in how we work and safety is a big focus for us.

We have a well looked after fleet of machinery that can remove any tree stump, in any situation. We pride ourselves on achieving the desired outcomes for our clients. In fact, we love a challenge! Not only do we provide stump removal in Melbourne, but we also carry out stump poisoning and root pruning too.

Our team are fully qualified and experienced, they also are a friendly bunch too! We really believe that to have a great company, you have to have great people and that we do. Our team provides a great service from the first phone call or email, through to the job completion.

Dave aims to continue to build long-standing relationships and to push Proleaf into the future as an expert stump removal company. We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, helping in the community and being the best company we can!
