My love for trees began early in life always spending time in them, climbing to the highest branches and making forts. Most of my working life has been in and around trees, and I came to Arboriculture from a background in Viticulture Horticulture and Civiculture with a lot of the skills transfered.

I was trained by Simon Palmer, Professional Arboriculture whom took me under his wing and being a small business was able to personally mentor me in every step of my apprenticeship one on one. His skills and attention to detail has made him one of Wellingtons top arborists and I was lucky to learn from him and have his support to then step into my own business Elite Arboriculture.

For many years I served the Wellington region with a steady flow of work built on word of mouth and repeat clients many of whom have become dear friends. I subsequently moved up to Kapiti coast to be closer to family and are passionate about the trees and tree pruning practices in and around my community.

I’m continualy fasinated by what I learn about trees and feel lucky to get to spend most of my time with them. My aim is to provide you with a service that is affordable quick and professional using the best tools, skills and machinery in the industry with the extra care taken in and around your garden and to enjoy my time doing what I love. I hope to meet you and your trees sometime soon.


This is the process of taking down medium to large trees and using specialised equipment to work within the tree, and sometimes employing rigging equipment to lower the branches to the ground.

Pruning and Trimming

This is a science as well as an art form and involves a deep understanding of tree biology, recognizing plant flaws and skillfully eliminating or minimizing defects without hindering the tree’s growth or causing irreparable damages.

Felling & Stump Grinding

Whether a tree is dead, sick or unwanted, it should be removed by an expert. We use the safest practices and cutting-edge equipment to effectively remove even the most difficult of trees with minimal intrusion to the property owner. 

Jade has done a beautiful job of tidying up our very neglected totara. Now we have beautiful trees and a beautiful view through them! Excellent, knowledgeable service.

Jade loves trees, and it shows in his work. He just turned our neglected pohutukawa tree into a beautiful speciman tree. He trimed and mulched his way through our front yard and it now looks amazing! Great to work with, quick, tidy, and goes above and beyound. We highly recommend him for any tree work.

Some pines left behind by a felling crew in close proximity to power lines proved a worthy challenge this day we managed to dismantle 8 in a row leaving the wood in situ.
