Heritage Tree Care Introduces a Resident Artist


We are delighted to welcome the extremely talented and versatile Mark Makhoul to the Heritage Tree Care Team as our resident artist.  Mark can be found at our Sumner Park based depot creating original masterpieces made from all types of recycled wood and other sustainable materials.

As an environmentally friendly and sustainability driven company, we aim to recycle 100% of our waste products.   All waste products are reused and repurposed, from Aged Forest Mulch for mulching garden beds, wooden stakes for planting, planks for fence posts or furniture to firewood and pizza wood. Collaborating with a well -known, talented Queensland artist  is an exciting addition to our sustainability projects and our ongoing endeavor to become a completely ‘green’ company.

A Wide Variety of Original and Inspiring Products

Local Queensland artist Mark is working his magic by making a variety of custom-made products for both inside and outside use.  All products and art are custom made such as totem poles, sculptures, wall art, musical instruments, benches, tables, clocks and so much more. Creative Mark can work to scope or can come up with original and imaginative ideas to fulfill a detailed or loose brief.  The artwork is all individually commissioned meaning that after the lucky customers will receive a piece that is handcrafted, original  and unique.

Mark works closely with customers to design the art including the pattern required and material used.  After designing the artwork, Mark utilizes a variety of wood types that are milled from logs using a state-of-the-art Lucas Mill. The Lucas Mill ensures that the wood is undamaged when cut and then it is beautifully slabbed and therefore easy to work with.  Depending on the product and design, Mark will then draw by hand the required picture or pattern onto the wood.  The picture is then carved into the wood, using Mark’s considerable skills and eye for detail.  Once it is carved to the artist’s satisfaction, it is then painted with a special varnish in order to seal the wood so that it will remain in excellent condition in all weathers and elements.
