Arborist Tauranga


Alex did a great job of pruning my avocado trees. He also attended to my ornamental shrubs and trees while on the property. He is a knowledgeable, conscientious and pleasant young man to work with.

I have used Alex on several occasions now. He is an extremely knowledgeable arborist and offers a very professional service. He has kept me well informed when it has come to each job and finishes the job properly when it comes to cleaning the site. I would definitely use him every time and would recommend him to others.

I recently had a very large tree removed and selected Alex and his staff to complete the tasks. His pricing is very sharp he is prompt to reply to messages and we were able to quickly set a date. On the day Alex and his staff were amazing. They are highly professional very careful and safe and what they do. They cleared up all the mess. You could hardly see where this huge tree had been felled. I wanted the word for firewood so Alex very kindly chopped into pieces big enough for us to lift on the trailer. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone needing any work done on their trees. And to top it off he’s just the most light for young man.

Alex was great overall. From the moment I enquired about a quote, he was efficient with his communication and arranged to come and do the quote and completed it within a few days of my enquiry. The quote was fair and reasonable and provided in writing via email after Alex visited and saw the trees for himself.

After I decided that I was goinh to have Alex in to do the job, he booked me in and did it in a timely manner, still only about a week out from the initial enquiry.

The job was completed to a high standard, all debris was removed and my yard was left in a clean state with no wood or chunks lying around.

I would highly recommend Alex and Better Trees BOP, as a reputable, efficient arborist. If the trees get out of control again, I will be using thier services again. Thanks, Isaac Jakobs of Greerton.

Thank you Alex for pruning our very high Palm Trees (scary!) and for being very careful with the fledgling birds high up in the nests. Definitely use you again.

Alex has done two jobs for us now. Both times he’s exceeded our expectations and done more than was asked. He is friendly and accommodating and his pricing is very reasonable. We would use him again in future and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for an arborist.

Alex from Better Trees pruned the large tree in our front yard. First with his 6 metre pole saw. Then with incredible agility, a climbing harness and chainsaw. He removed the dead wood and branches that were overhanging the carport, maintaining the overall shape of the top canopy. We are very pleased with the result and the professional manner in which Alex did the work. Alex is passionate about trees and nature generally. I can wholeheartedly recommend ‘Better Trees’ for sorting those problem trees.

Today we experienced excellent service from this company. We contacted several tree felling companies who made appointments to come assess the tree and did not turn up or bother to let us know. In stark contrast Alex from Better Trees Bay of Plenty arrived on time gave us various options regarding mulch etc, gave us a prompt quote. We in fact had to postpone the work day, even that was not a problem. Alex, Paris and Gee arrived on time, and even cut up a tree we had already felled and mulched the rest for us at no extra cost. They offered to mulch into a trailer for us and dump it closer to our gardens, They were polite, hard working and went the extra mile. We will definately be using their services in the future. Could not recommend them more highly.

Many thanks Alex for a tricky tree removal job expertly done.
I greatly appreciate the care you took to preserve the surrounding trees, the tidy state you left the site when finished and your willingness to do “extras”.
I’ll certainly have you back when needed.

Excellent team for residential work. Alex removed tree, reduced tree and shaped many others. He did exactly as was asked and provided advice also.

Alex is a true professoinal with a friendly and helpful manner. He exhibits knowlege and skills which immediately become obvious once he has started the work and is well equipped with all the tools and machinery. His pricing was very fair, I would have him back in a flash if the need arises again.

Thanks Alex, you and your team did a fantastic job today felling those big trees. I finally have some much needed sunshine on my property. Great communication, easy to engage with and incredibly efficient and respectful.

Sarah Revell
Professional and friendly local arborist. He pruned an overgrown plum tree in mum’s garden that she couldn’t take care of any longer. She was really happy with the care and thought involved and it has produced more plums than ever before. Can’t wait til they fully ripen. Thank you Alex!

Alex and Paris showed on time on a Saturday morning, put in a very full 7 hours of hard work and left the place clean and tidy. Very happy with them, their work and the bill.

Thanks to Alex, Wayne and Daniel for a great, professional job felling our cherry tree that was becoming too large and dangerous. Sad to see it go. And also to the team for pruning several other trees on our section and cleaning up so well afterwards. Alex split some branches for firewood for us and also liaised with Josh Wright who took three large pieces of the tree for milling. They even made the stump into a kids table with steps cut in for the grandkids to climb it! We are so glad we found Alex and his crew.
