Thinning & Pruning Services Canterbury Region

Trees and shrubs are fantastic things to have in our landscape. They provide many benefits such as shade, structure and street appeal. But over time they can block the view, block the winter sunshine or simply spread into neighbouring properties.

The good news is this doesn’t mean you have to remove the tree or shrub. Thinning and pruning can restore most unruly greenery back to their former glory. Fruit trees, deciduous trees, New Zealand native trees, shrubs or exotics, no matter what the variety, they can all benefit from thinning and pruning.

Our qualified arborists can resolve many problems with our expert pruning. Whether we need to prune out deadwood, thin out trees and shrubs to let in more light, our arborists can do it all. We’ll also attend to any wood that has disease because it’s important to prevent its spread.
