Tree Care and Landscaping Services


The tree care and landscaping services industry in South Africa comprises a small, well-organised formalised sector and a larger fragmented informal garden services sector. The performance of the landscaping industry is affected by economic conditions and closely aligned to the performance of the property industry, and both the economy and property fundamentals remain weak. The invasion of shothole borer beetles in Gauteng, which is killing trees, has, however, led to uncharacteristic growth in the tree care sector. Drought conditions and runaway fires have increased the need for the eradication of woody alien invasive species which are water hungry and produce intense heat in a runaway fire.


New Opportunities


Drought conditions and insect invasions have opened up opportunities for the industry. These include an increase in water-wise gardens and new irrigation products for water saving. Biodiversity gardens for insect conservation are an important development in the industry, particularly with the decrease in bee populations. The increase in incidence of fires has led to “firescaping” innovation to prevent the spread of fires.
