Joel Leaney

Proprietor of Touch Wood Tree Services Gold Coast

Originally from Cairns, Joel learnt to climb in the trees on the Atherton Tablelands at just 19 years of age. Having been referred to as a “human spiderman” by a local newspaper he could be seen working with powerline companies to clear branches from lines and working for private tree lopping businesses.

Joel relocated to the Gold Coast and worked as a subcontractor for many years and for various tree removal businesses, before branching out on his own to start Touch Wood Trees.

With the help of our experienced ground staff, Joel and the boys take enormous pride in their work, always ensuring they communicate with the customer prior to and on the day of the job and that they leave the job site often tidier than before they started!

In his spare time, he has competed in the National Pole climbing competition several years running and has also competed in the QLD tree climbing championships where he walked away with 1st in the speed climb and Rookie of the year! When he is not swinging high in the trees he enjoys spending time with his two young sons.

We have used Touch Wood on numerous occasions. They are exceptional in their work and fantastic to deal with. Very professional and do an amazing job. Highly recommended.
