We pride ourselves on providing our clients with sound advice based on modern arboriculture and horticultural practices, whilst delivering our service in a stated time frame.
We keep our clients well informed of progress before and during projects and provide work at reasonable cost without compromising quality or safety.
We strive to build long-term partnerships with all our clients. Over the years the company has played a role in introducing innovative solutions that have improved operating and quality standards for our clients.
For example IT development, Mobile Training Units, specialised plant, work methods,management structures and codes of practice. These attributes are evident within our long and successful partnerships with clients such as Energex in Australia and Auckland City Council in New Zealand.
With over 30 years of experience working for a wide range of clients across New Zealand and Australia we have developed the required skills and knowledge to provide a world-class tree maintenance team. Our experience of working in two of the largest spreading Australasian urban populations, Brisbane and Auckland City provides us with the expertise to help deal with the unique challenges of the urban forest.
We have a plant health care division in Brisbane, which specialises with exgrounds planting and transplanting on high profile projects. We have planted over nine thousand trees in Auckland City over the last 9 years. They have been planted in high-density business districts through to residential and commercial suburbs. Planting and establishing trees in high-density urban environments require sound planning and good management system.
We have had considerable experience in Tree pest and disease management having carried out the original eradication program for Dutch elm disease in Auckland New Zealand on behalf of the then Ministry of Forestry. We carried out a complete survey of the elm tree population in the greater Auckland region and handled the eradication of all the infected elm trees.
We also were involved in the ground spraying for Tussock Moth and Painted Apple Moth when they were identified in the Auckland region. Every disease or pest is different but the logistics for managing containment or eradication are similar and we have had that experience which is extremely beneficial should future events arise. We have a Plant health team that is based in Brisbane and they are highly qualified. They are also currently involved in plant health care projects and training in Singapore.
Utility arboriculture is a specialised field of work that requires additional training and skills over and above normal arboriculture. We have those skills and the required equipment and operating procedures to carry out this work safely and to a high quality. Treescape has been involved in Utility Arboriculture for more than 20 years and pride ourselves on our ability to achieve the requirements of the Utility providers and keep th ebest interests and health of the affected trees in mind.
Treescape prides itself on carrying out its business in a professional manner and actively encourages staff to undertake further tertiary educational programs.Many of our staff have advanced qualifications in their chosen field be it arboriculture, horticultural or in business management.
