From left to right we have - Nic, a former DOC weed control officer. He’s used to dealing with things on a per hectare basis, so your job won’t trouble him in the slightest. Nic has a semi autonomous role dealing with all things ground level whilst also bringing job management skills.

Tom an established climbing arborist, very tall so He’s almost half way up when He starts.

And Zane, Mr reliable and hugely capable.

These work supervising foreman are always ready to listen to clients and adjust and help where the work scope and budget allow which consistently wins us happy clients. They are ably assisted by skilled, energetic and helpful staff in training.


In the machinery roll call we have a Bandit XP12, a 14.5x17 inch American chipper known to be the most productive and reliable in this size. -Towed by a custom built Isuzu 5tonne tip truck with an alloy chip bin for weight reduction.

Then the extremely useful 9m3 custom tip trailer, with drop down sides and a load platform as well as brakes to both axles and load equalising suspension for safety

A 70 series Toyota Land Cruiser. The last word in small vehicle towing capacity, ability and reliability. Keeping up with heavy load removal out of Auckland’s steep tight driveways.

And Nics versatile van, giving us economy of operation on all those small jobs as well as the big nasty overgrown lawns.
