Eastern Tree Service (ETS) started in Victoria in 1981 as a specialist service to cut trees around power lines. In the late 1990s, the company expanded to Queensland, then in the new millennium to Tasmania, New South Wales and Western Australia. With 95 per cent of its jobs coming from big power utility companies, ETS often sends members of its 1000-strong crew to the most far-flung corners of Australia.
