Feedback from Clients

“From my first call to completion of our mammoth job we were super impressed. Rob came to site quoted within the day, signed off, lead times given, turns up on time and completed within the day along with a follow up call to ensure I was 100% happy. The site was left clean and tidy. Highly recommend his team!!”

“Rob did a fantastic job for us. Very quick and a great tidy up afterwards. Highly recommended.”

David Picketts - Waipu

“Rob did a fantastic job, exactly as agreed and as we live in Auckland - Rob sent photos of what he had done, very professional! His cleanup was excellent as well. In the past other contractors had left a mess and often not completed the job as agreed which was frustrating, especially when you don't live locally. Rob is also a very nice guy, you can trust him to do the job as agreed and to a high standard!”

“Rob did an amazing job trimming our 50 metre hedge and it now looks incredible. He exceeded our expectations with his attention to detail.
I would highly recommend Waipu Tree Care and will be using Rob again.”

Chris Jack - Waipu

“Rob has attended our property twice now and always does wonderful work. Most trees haven’t been attended to for years, and he does the most excellent job of getting them back in shape (and height!). We can’t recommend Rob highly enough. He’s prompt, professional, and very pleasant to have on the property. We’ve arranged for Rob to come back and do further work for us. Thanks a lot Rob – you are always a pleasure to deal with.”


“We highly recommend Rob Dawson from Waipu Tree Care. Rob is a fully qualified expert arborist, he understands the bylaws well around tree sculpturing, thinning, removal and pruning. 
Rob gave us advice on how best to enhance our view legally without harming the overall canopy and refining the shape of our trees letting in sunlight and improving our view. We were impressed that Rob was punctual and stuck to his quote, he was also very approachable and communication was excellent.
The job was very high and difficult, there were flower gardens and plants which he and his coworker Nick manoeuvred around not damaging anything. Our property was left In excellent order with a bonus of a big pile of mulch.
I would thoroughly recommend anyone wanting a professional and expert job done well at a reasonable price. 
Thank you so much to you and Nick for a job well done. We were very impressed.”

“Rob Dawson from Waipu Tree Care came highly recommended from a local landscaper and friend . We engaged Rob for a days work on our property and we were very impressed. Rob cut a large griselinia hedge & pruned the citrus & native trees on our property. Many of the native trees are 30 years old & tall so we needed an expert arborist to do the work. Rob collected the cuttings into piles then went around with his mobile chipper and chipped it up and spread it back onto the garden. His mobile chipper made short work of the cuttings and added mulch to our garden. 
Rob was on time and professional.  He is a expert arborist. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.”

A & M Robinson - Waipu

“We found Rob Dawson of ''Waipu Tree Care'' by Google search, looking for a local Arborist  in the Ruakaka area. I asked him to come over our lifestyle block and give us a quote on various trees that were in bad shape, overgrown. I liked his attitude right away as he seemed to be very sympathetic towards the welfare of the trees . Nonetheless he assessed the trees and gave us a  fare quote.

He got the job, came at the arranged time of 8am sharp and, without wasting any time got on with the job, The Oak tree, The Redwood and the Norfolk pine were all very tall. He has a very good ability to climb trees to the top and works his way down in a very calm and almost noiseless way with the latest tools available.He did a great job .The trees all look much nicer and healthy then before. We will be using Rob again in the near future. I have no hesitation in recommending Rob for his workmanship and vast knowledge as an Arborist.”

“Dealing with contractors is not always easy, but with Waipu Tree Care it was a breeze. They were professional and efficient and did a great job at a price we were happy with. I'd have no problem recommending them to anyone.”

Adam Fricker - Ruakaka

“Rob did an excellent job trimming our overgrown 60m long griselinia hedge. The end result has made a huge difference to the appearance of our property. Communication great from initial contact to completion of work and all foliage and branches taken away.”

J Robertson - Mata 

“We got Waipu Tree Care to come and do some work on our property after a letter drop at our house the work was done professionally and they followed all the Health and Safety rules relating to heights and their knowledge of what to prune and what not to was excellent .

We were impressed with the work done and no mess left on the property after they had finished.”

Bill and Christine Banford - Langs Beach

“After being disappointed with “No Show” aborists several times, it was refreshing to receive a prompt response from Rob (Waipu Tree Care). He was punctual when arriving to access our Flame tree requirements. He conveyed an appreciation of our need while at the same time planning the future well-being of the tree. He gave us a price and followed this up with a written quote stating anticipated start and completion time. We accepted the price, set a date and Rob kept his word. He turned up on the day and completed the tree grooming with suggestions for future maintenance. Included was a no charge followup inspection once the tree was in full leaf. The final effect was what we desired, the Flame tree looks healthy and continues to be an asset to our home.

Thanks Rob.”

John and Lynette Mellsop - Waipu Cove

“Rob provides a really professional service, our trees were in much need of trimming and Rob did an amazing job.  He is obviously a well qualified and experienced arborist and even took the time to clean up all the mess.

We will definitely be using his services again and totally recommend him to others.”
