Treescape is a vibrant and growing company with a can do attitude. We provide tailored environmental and arboricultural solutions throughout New Zealand and Australia. Looking after our people and our environment matters to us.
Treescape Ltd was formed in 1981 by Ed Chignell and Brandon Whiddett, who had a goal to deliver tailored tree services that consistently exceeded customer’s expectations. The company started with little more than a VW Beetle and a couple of chainsaws; today, Treescape’s service range has significantly expanded and diversified, with depots located throughout New Zealand and Australia, employing over 500 staff.
Treescape are proud to encourage the development and promotion of talented staff into more senior roles within the business. There is ample choice for working locations and in developing specialist skills in a wide variety of areas. As a result, employee retention is high, especially as staff start moving up the ladder.

How Treescape’s Depots and Business Units Work:
Each depot in New Zealand is managed by a Business Manager, whose job it is to oversee the work that is carried out in their region. Each depot may have multiple areas of specialty arborist work that is carried out from the one location, and each of these specialty areas are called Business Units. The type of work carried out by business units in each region depends largely on the contract requirements in that area, and the commercial and private requirements of the community.
This structure allows Treescape to deliver the greatest service efficiency to our clients, and to ensure field staff are appropriately qualified and experienced for the job at hand. It also enables field staff to choose their area of expertise, and in turn receive the appropriate support and training from their regional manager.
