Pruning and Possible Tree Removal

Posted 2 days ago

Hello, We recently moved into a house in Ngaio. We are hoping to have an arborist to complete the following: 1. We live on a north-facing hillside and looking to get a bit more sun to the house.

We are hoping to obtain an arborist to help reach this goal. We have budgeted for about 1 to 2 days of time, so we may look a...

Tree Topping and Ground Cover Clearing

Posted 1 day ago

I would like to top some overgrown griselinea (about 3-4m high) and a small pohutukawa (about 3m high) on a bank at the back of my property in Three Kings. The trees are growing on a downward sloping bank to the boundary which also needs clearing of weeds and other ground cover. I'd imagine a pole pruner would be a good tool for the job as ladder access won't be that straight forward. The property is tenanted but access is easy. I'd like all the debris to be removed and then weed mat pegged d...
