Matching the right trees and shrubs for the site to ensure that you get the best result for your investment. In Wellington, wind tends to severely limit the variety of trees and shrubs that can be planted on some sites, and we can advise what will be the best for your location.
Supply and Planting
We can supply nearly any species, size or grade of tree or shrub to meet your requirements. We will also plant, secure and establish your desired plants whether it is one individual tree or a whole garden that you require. We provide plants for wind shelter, privacy screening, colour in winter, shade in summer and instant gardens wherever you wish. We also install manual or automatic watering systems to ensure that you can maintain the trees and shrubs you have invested in.
Pruning maintains the health and vitality of your trees and shrubs throughout their life cycle and this is our primary concern – the health of your trees.
Trees growing in an urban setting present unique management concerns as we have a natural entity growing in an unnatural situation and we therefore have to use unnatural means to control its growth.
People do not have tree problems, trees have people problems
This is where we can help. By advocating for your trees we can ensure that you can co-exist together, whether you need more light, a better view or a nice spreading tree to sit under in the summer we can ensure that whatever is done will not harm your trees and shrubs giving you the result you desire.
The services that we provide during the life of your tree include:
- Rose and fruit pruning
- Form pruning

Tree Risk Assesment
Trees are an important part of the urban and rural environment. They provide many benefits to individuals and communities, some financial, some aesthetic and others esoteric.
Trees always pose a potential risk of causing injury, damage or disruption but that does not mean that we should condemn them all, just to remove that potential. Tree owners have a duty of care to ensure that the potential risk does not become unacceptable and while it is not possible to eliminate all risk associated with trees, it is possible to assess those risks and manage them at a reasonable and acceptable level.
Tree risk assessment involves us in identifying targets likely to be impacted by a failed tree or tree components, assessing the likelihood of failure and the potential consequences, determining the level of risk and, and providing mitigation options.
We will provide you, the tree owner, with this information to enable you to make an informed decision about what action to take, if any, to reduce the potential risk to an acceptable level.
Call us today if you have concerns about your trees and let us supply you with a science based assessment of your trees and the potential risk they may pose to you or your environment.
