Alba Tree Services


Tree Planting

Get It Right First Time

Trees are an ideal way of adding foliage and greenery to our gardens, streets and open areas. Alba Tree Services Ltd. offer a comprehensive service for tree planting whether it be a single specimen, groups, or a whole woodland. We can create a planting proposal that covers which trees to use, sizes, planting methods, costings, and after care regimes, including all the appropriate plans and drawings if required. 

Planting a tree is not quite as simple as digging a hole and sticking a tree in it, there are many factors to consider such as;

  • Species selection - mature size, climate tolerance, water demand, native/exotic
  • Planting location - underground & overhead services, buildings and foundations
  • Maintenance costs - future maintenance high or low
  • When to plant - what is the best time of year to plant?
  • Soil type - this can affect individual tree growth and/or fruit production
  • After care - ensuring that your plant gets the best possible start and you're not wasting money

Real Client Testimonials

  • We Employed Mik After Some Recent Storm Damage On Our Property. He arrived promptly and quickly assessed the situation. Everything was cleared up and taken away without any hassle. We were really happy with the professional service and will definitely use Alba Tree Services again.

  • Mik, Just A Quick Email to let you know that both Di & I really appreciate the great job you did on our trees, it is very refreshing to meet someone who really does measure up!

    Frank - Christchurch
  • Two weeks ago I had Alba Tree Services prune our oak tree back from our house to allow more light in. I would highly recommend Alba Tree Services for their expert knowledge & prompt service. I found Michael a real pleasure to deal with, he was very thorough in explaining the job process with me, assuring me that pruning was the correct decision for my tree.

    Claire Parsons - Christchurch
  • Absolutely thrilled with the professional way in which our very large oak tree was felled. Mik was amazing. Cheapest quote of 6 quotes obtained. Being given the option of having some of our timber milled was a great option, not provided by any other arborists contacted. We would highly recommend Alba Tree Services. Prompt service and no damage. Result is spectacular.

    Sue & Dave Vincent - Hornby
  • Our beloved 130 y/o protected Oak tree at Kate Sheppard House split out and came crashing down. After phoning around - Mik at Alb Tree Services was first to respond and on-site within 15 mins
    the next day Mik and his team efficiently took down the remainder of the tree without causing any further damage to the surrounding trees/plants.
    I have not the slightest hesitation in recommending Alba Tree Services to anyone who needs the very best advice backed up by effective practical ability
