Residential & commercial tree care services
Let our professional and experienced Arborists do it for you
If your trees are too big
No problem, we can reduce the height or spread of your trees. By using arboricultural techniques to reduce trees properly we will maintain the trees structural integrity and form and reduce the amount of future pruning required.
If your section looks messy & your trees block out too much light
Form pruning, thinning or a good trim and tidy of your trees and shrubs may be just what is need. Form pruning your trees will remove dead, diseased, or dangerous branches, improve structure, enhance vigour, and maintain safety. Thinning your trees will highlight the branch structure and allow in more light.
If you think your tree is dangerous
There are a number defects that will make your tree more likely to fail or shed branches. These include re-growth from topping, broken or partially attached branches, open cavities, dead or dying branches, decay in old wounds, a change in soil grade or level, or other construction activity.
If you are concerned about the health or safety of your tree contact us now for a free Arborist visit to assess your tree.
If you want to prune your protected tree
If your tree is a Notable tree depending on the situation resource consent may be required.
If your tree is protected through subdivision resource consent is not required for pruning maintenance, however the Council requires the pruning to be carried out by a suitably qualified and experienced arborist.
We are one of the Christchurch City Council approved contractors for consented pruning or removal work and are happy to advise on what may be required for your situation.
If you want your garden to have the “wow” factor
We can advise how to add charm and character to your garden plants. For example removing the lower branches of a shrub or tree creates light and space for under planting and can also reveal attractive bark or branch structure or we can create focal points in your garden by thinning to add character and grace to a formless tree or shrub.

If you want to protect the trees on your construction site
Unfortunately the processes involved with construction can be deadly to nearby trees. Usually the trees won’t die immediately but will decline over several years. Some of the main ways trees are damaged during construction include physical injury to the trunk or crown, cutting of roots, soil compaction, smothering roots and exposure to elements.
The good news is that it is possible to preserve trees on building sites if the right measures are taken. We can assist you during the planning stage of your development, help you decide which trees can be saved and can work with your builder to protect the trees throughout each construction phase.
If you want new trees planted
We are happy to advise on the trees that would be best for your property. We can provide a planting plan and supply and plant the trees for you.
