tree doctors

LIVING PLANET TREE DOCTIORS are members of the New Zealand Arboricultural Association. Our team scale trees with unsurmountable energy and joy. We are qualified arborists, skilled at felling the largest of Pinus radiata, Eucalyptus and Macrocarpa trees here in Wellington. We will also happily reduce both large and small ornamental trees beautifully. Our certified arborists complete a wide range of pruning: thinning, dead-wooding and crown reduction on any sized tree or shrub. And, of course we have all the toys to trim hedges, both large and small.

landscape design and development

LIVING PLANET LANDSCAPE DESIGNERS and DEVELOPERS provide essential landscape services. We will draw up detailed plans and planting schedules of specific landscape sites and projects and then construct and plant out sites according to those plans - We happily work to other designers' plans as well and in many instances are able to develop small projects without the need for drawn plans at all. We are a team of expert designers, masons, carpenters and plantsmen. We are focussed to produce top quality, unique projects, completing all carpentry and other hard landscaping work with joyful ease. We have an addiction both for native as well as exotic plants. Watch our magic turn your landscape into a fully functional and inspiring place to live and relax.
