Sadly we had a very large Totora, about 120 years old, that died and needed removal. Unfortunately with very restricted access no ability to use any machinery.
Gareth assessed the job, provided a really comprehensive written plan, and with some superb skills Gareth and Joe got the tree down. Even better everything else is still standing. Highly recommend Arbortechnix
I made contact with Gareth via Builderscrack. He came to our home and provided a detailed quote of the work to be done. He gave me confidence that he new what he was doing and had a lot of experience. We accepted his quote after a small price negotiation. We did have to wait a while, but eventually a couple of guys turned up and did a great job of cutting a good third off our very large Gladitsia tree. They retained a good shape overall.
I would suggest a tarp being laid over the driveway for protection and ease of cleanup. Overall a great job, so would recommend.
Very professional comprehensive quote and documentation. Excellent job removing 2 large trees in a tricky situation with surrounding trees and garden structures. On site staff very competent and helpful. No surrounding damage and everything cleaned up. Excellent value.Would recommend highly
"I am very happy with the work performed by ArborTechniX. I have an outdoor mini golf course in Onehunga, and it has been a real problem trying to keep the trees in check. ArborTechniX went that extra mile to ensure that the job did not damage my putting greens, including a lot of major pruning and removal of 4 large trees (a big ask as the greens are close to the trees), performed additional jobs that were not part of the original brief, worked quickly, (minimal downtime to my business) completed the job beyond my expectations and cleaned up afterwards. very happy to recommend to anyone looking for someone that will take a bit of extra care to ensure that it looks right."
Great Job
Every aspect of the job completed by Gareth and his team was well done. I had a comprehensive list of work for him to complete including tree and stump removal to thinning and shaping established trees on our property. Gareth listened carefully to what I wanted, responded promptly to my request for quote and presented detailed paperwork. We organised a date to complete the job and he kept in touch as to his arrival time. Gareth supervised the young men working with him and consulted with me when he thought that changes might improve the outcome. He and the team left the garden looking fantastic.

I recommend ArborTechniX unreservedly and will certainly use them again in the future.
Awesome Service.
ArborTechniX were recommended to us by another arborist who said Gareth had a reputation of taking on challenging jobs and had excellent technical ability to carry out the work. And this proved to be the case with a macrocarpa removal situated very close to our house.
Throughout the site visit and consultation you can tell Gareth knows what he is talking about, and this gives you confidence in his ability. He then provides a comprehensively detailed quote that outlines all work to be carried out, I have never before received such a quality brief from previous arborist companies used.
The ArborTechniX guys worked in a very efficient manner with great care and precision , didn't shy away when faced with also having to remove a thorny bougainvillea infestation up in the tree canopy, cut firewood rings and placed in the designated location, and did a good job cleaning up on completion.
Don't bother getting several quotes from various arborist companies, get hold of ArborTechniX and they will carry out your work efficiently and at a reasonable price.
Thanks Gareth and team. You did a fantastic job - you are truly professional in the way you deal with plants and tress. Thanks for leaving things so tidy too.
Mark Mitchell
Gareth and his team did some work on a very old fruit tree we had and we are very happy with the work, as a result we will hopefully have this tree for many years yet. Gareth is very knowledgeable and performed a very thorough on site assessment before doing the work. The work was carried out within the time frame indicated and our yard was left very tidy. Thank you again.
Thomas - Barfoots Takapuna
We have used Gareth many times in the past two years. He is by far the most thorough tradesman we use in terms of safety and job outlines. This is especially helpful when communicating to both our tenants and owners alike. He is extremely prompt with service, work completion and invoicing. We fully recommend using Gareth for any tree work needed.
Ian Watt
Excellent job done thanks Gareth.
Very efficient service and well explained and documented in your brief. Your knowledge of plants and tree specimens involved and the best recommended treatment of each was excellent. Thank you and we will definitely utilise your services again.
I recommend ArborTechnix for a 5 simple reasons.
1) your phone calls/ texts or emails are returned promptly 2) when an agreed day and time for a quote was decided upon Gareth was there. I appreciate a trades person who actually arrives. When asked for two separate quotes there was no problem and when opting for the lesser job to be done there was no issue. 3) on the agreed day scheduled for the work he and his team arrived when they said they would. The ArborTechnix guys were friendly, cheerful and did a great job. 4) everything done was within the quote given 5) guys that are brave enough to safely clamber up monstrous trees while brandishing chainsaws and dropping huge branches while cracking jokes and NOT destroying your property in the process deserve their own TV show. Ice Road Truckers, whatever.
Job Well Done
Gareth cut down a tree in our back yard. It was in a difficult position and he was able to remove the fence, clean fell the tree and replace the fence. He advised us on how to mill the trunk and helped cut the rest up into firewood. He is very reliable, and provides good advice, cleaned up the job well and came back later to stump grind.
Great Job
Gareth & Sam did a great job of removing multiple trees from my property. They were fast, tidy & details both in the quote and the explanation of the work to be done. Thanks very much!
Mark Fryer
Gareth's team did a very nice job of trimming a too-vigorous titoki and magnolia. This is the second job they've done for me, and both times I've been particularly impressed with how clean the site was when they were finished.
Excellent job thanks Gareth.
Claire Johnstone-Thomas
Outstanding job!
Gareth did an amazing job removing a giant Pheonix Palm that was growing in the middle of a protected Pohutukawa.
He took on a tree that most companies had said was out of their skill set and completed it with perfect results.
Very professional, provided a detailed quote and delivered an excellent result on budget.
Proved to be a great show with Gareth standing at the top of the giant tree and hanging from a 55 ton crane!! Would highly recommend this business to anyone.
David Knight

Good job well done. Would recommend.

Removal of two large trees and stumps
I have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to anyone who may be considering any form of tree work.
Your level of service and professional skills were of a high standard.
Your patience during the "negotiations" between neighbours was really appreciated.
Great job Thanks!
The quote and explanation of the work to be done was fast and so much more detailed than other companies.
Then the job itself was done fast and exactly as specified....
So thanks very much!

Quick response to intial contact with clear & precise details of work required on trees in section.
Gareth made the whole process easy to follow, took all the hassle out of what

Sarah Dickson
Easy to deal with
Gareth was quick getting back to me when I first contacted him, in fact was the only company that actually got back to me!
We had three trees cut down, work was completed quickly and the guys very professional.
They were late showing up due to some equipment issues, but Gareth gave us a call to advise this so we were kept in the loop.
Would definitely recommend.
Great job
Had a liquidambar removed and a silver dollar gum trimmed.
Great work and easy to deal with.
Good value for money.
Thanks Gareth and your professional hardworking team!
Kaaren S
Quick, clean and fuss-free

Wonderful service and great advice
John B
No dramas, hassles and fast service
Thanks Gareth and your team. Great job and would use your services again.
All in one - great service
Gareth and his team just did a fantastic job of tidying up my property. 1x Hedge removal, 2x hedge trim, stump grinding, a pile of wood whip and a thorough clean up of the site before they left.
Nice guys, a professional hard working team, great value for money.
Arbortechnix - Prompt and Professional with No Hassles!
Arbortechnix provided a competitive quote for perimeter tree clearing on my property and Gareth and his team were able to complete the job before other companies even returned my calls. The work on my property was completed with care and the section was left in a tidy state.
They accommodated last minute changes in instructions without batting an eyelid: one side of firewood and a few more trees coming right up!
Don’t waste your time ringing around for quotes – these guys will have your job done and dusted before you know it.
Gareth Vaughn
Gareth and his team did a great, professional job of removing a large totara between our place and our neighbour's.
We especially appreciate the patience he showed following a couple of false starts as we negotiated with the neighbours.
Sunshine is now flooding our property.
All up a great result.
Camellia & magnolia reshape, bamboo downsize & guava removal
Very happy with the work done to re-shape our existing trees & tackle the bamboo. Lovely job, very neat and cost effective
Small Job - Fast and Easy
I cannot say enough about the professionalism and prompt service of ArborTechnix. Our job was almost too small for them but never mind! Gareth gave us a quote the same day and our fallen-tree cleared was away before 0830 the next morning. Price was competitive and service was outstanding. Would definitely call on Gareth and his team again.
Mark Fryer
Reduction of titoki and magnolia
After surveying the trees, Gareth helped decide whether removal or reduction was the best course of action.
He provided a detailed quote for the work, and was very good about keeping in touch when there were some unexpected delays.
Once he began, the work was completed very quickly, and the site was left clean and tidy -- all for a very reasonable price.
Gareth and his team have just removed 3 large palms from our property and they have done an excellent job.
They are very professional and it was great watching as they dropped these trees exactly into a defined area, they sure know what they are doing!!
Job was completed to our satisfaction, on time and communication was excellent.
I would recommend Gareth and team to anyone requiring a professional, hassle free experience in removing any trees.
