Trim, cut, remove and mulch.

Whether it's a dead branch or a bothersome stump, we're able to reduce and mulch the result, turning the problem plant into a soft, reusable material to fill any hole in your garden (or you can use your mulch as compost). The end product is a flat, even surface that can be relain with lawn, concrete or patio.

We can grind down 100mm below ground level, giving you the same flat surface appeal as no stump at all.

Transplant, cut, chop and chip.

We're also available to take your trees and branches and turn them into firewood, or wood chippings, that we can either dispose of for you or bag for you to take home.

If you prefer to take your tree/bush with you, we can transplant your plants from your existing property to the new one, ensuring that all root systems are fully maintained. 

Because when it comes to your plants, the choice is entirely yours.

"Thanks Bryce and the team. Excellent job, we had some large, tricky trees for removal and they handled it like extreme professionals and we were amazed how easy they pulled it off. Thanks again, highly recommended."

Steve Z.

"I bought a house on the Cashmere Hills that included a huge, unsafe poplar tree right next to our bedroom window. I engaged Bryce and his team to perform a complete removal and the job went off without a hitch. With the help of a 60T crane the tree was gone in a day and the site was left as hoped. This wasn't an easy job and much could have gone wrong but the team acted safely and professionally. We now have so much more light coming into our house and many of our neighbours are enjoying a much better view of the city. I have no hesitation at recommending Bryce and his team."

Jason Pegley

"Bryce and the team at Pro Arb are the only services we trust when it comes to our trees and hedges. The reason is, they are not just skilled with safely using a chainsaw, chipper and the like, but they understand and appreciate trees. This means that they give advice on the best time and best methods to undertake your project and they won't advocate the cutting down of a beautiful tree for no good reason. They always do a good job, leave things tidy and charge fairly. They are also happy to do the trickier jobs that others will not, because with their equipment and abseiling skills, they can tackle anything. I have used them for different projects in the last year and already have them booked in for the next one."

“We used Bryce and his team to remove some gum trees out the front of our house. They carried out the job in a safe, quick and efficient manner. They cleaned up all the mess and left the wood ringed all ready for me to split up and dry for next winter. Highly recommend their services. Cheers guys.” 

Ed Curry

“I used Pro Arb Canterbury Ltd twice recently to remove two large hedges, stumps and rubbish. Communication to arrange the jobs was efficient and prompt. Work carried out was of a high standard and very quick. Pro Arb had all the gear and machinery necessary to undertake the work. The team were friendly and efficient. Clean up after the job was great. Price for the work was very acceptable. Thoroughly recommend for any work.” 

John Rawson

“Bryce and his team did an amazing efficient job removing two trees for us. They were always friendly and professional. As well as being safe around our young children they were also careful with the surrounding property and made removing a tree near a powerline and the house look easy. We would definitely recommend them.”

Grind or remove?

If you're dealing with a pesky tree in the way, here's what you need to know to make a decision;

Stump grinding.

  • Great option for residential and commercial properties.
  • Generally faster, cheaper and more affordable.
  • Less damaging to the surrounding property.
  • Can still pave over the stump.
  • Does the same job as stump removal. 
  • The stump will often die anyway.

Stump removal.

  • Removes stump rot and/or termites permanently. 
  • Ensures against underground root systems.
  • Allows you to plant dew trees nearby.
  • Easier to mow and manage surrounding grass.
  • Can be more destructive than stump grinding.
  • Not often needed.

Bryce is an experienced operator with strong emphasis on safety. The latest job involved the removal of two large trees but was completed in short order and the team did a great cleanup to finish everything off.
I have no problem in recommending Bryce and the Pro Arb team and will be using them again in the future."

Chris Jones

We used ProArb to prune a very old maple tree. It needed careful pruning and we found ProArb to be very professional, friendly and most of all knew exactly how to prune our tree with care. We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone seeking a good arborist."
