The Specimen Tree Company was established in 1987 by Gordon Ikin, our Managing Director, to share his passion for trees. This passion is still at the heart of our company today and it is demonstrated everyday by our experienced, qualified and dedicated staff. Trees are not just a part of our business, they are our business.
We provide a complete and holistic tree service from the birth of a tree (Nursery), through to a tree’s removal due to its old age and declining condition (Pruning and Surgery). We can guide your project through the planning stages and the granting of Resource Consent, undertake the tree removals required, provide on-site monitoring during construction, undertake plant supply and planting, and provide after-care maintenance to ensure tree establishment.
Our clients include residential property owners, landscape architects, landscape contractors, city councils, property developers, construction companies, golf courses, institutions and schools.
We primarily undertake pruning/surgery and landscaping/transplanting projects throughout an area from the north Waikato to the Bay of Islands.
Within the greater Auckland region we undertake delivery of trees from our nursery on our own trucks. Outside this area we can arrange delivery with other horticultural carriers to most locations nationwide.
Health and Safety
We maintain a rigorous Health and Safety system that is dynamic in nature, and regularly reviewed and updated.
Public Liability Insurance
We currently carry NZD$10 million of Public Liability Insurance cover.
