Tree consultancy

Having problems with your neighbours’ trees? Worried about your new development?

We can provide expert advice on the best pruning solutions for you and your neighbour to help ensure both parties are happy.

We will undertake visual tree assessments and risk assessments detailing the state of the tree and the best maintenance options. Our reports can be used in the Environmental Impact Assessments of any resource consent applications, helping to streamline the process.

We are well adept at considering the legal implications of any works or in providing expert evidence in court.

Our professional assessments are also used by utility providers, property developers and landscape architects – particularly for treasured protected or landscape trees, where additional care is necessary.

We can make recommendations for individual trees in backyards, or for larger commercial areas, such as parking areas, hospitals and schools, where the health and safety of trees is paramount.


“During our work with the team at Nelson Tree Specialists, I have found them to be friendly, prompt and willing to accommodate our requirements.

They communicate well and provide a high level of professionalism in their on-site works assistance, visual tree assessments and documentation, including requirements for Resource Management applications.

With their assistance we have been able to meet our build commitments and I have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Protected Trees
Our region is abundant with beautiful, protected trees, so it’s important we work with residents and Council to help ensure they receive the best quality care and maintenance.

Nelson Tree Specialists are approved contractors to both Nelson City and Tasman District Councils.

If you have queries regarding a protected or landscape tree on your property, please contact us.
