People Career Hero Image

In 1981 Treescape was created with little more than a Volkswagen Beetle and a couple of chainsaws; today, Treescape employs over 600 people throughout Australasia. Today, Treescape is a fast growing and diverse company, with multiple locations in both New Zealand and Australia.

Treescape's founding partners, Ed Chignell and Brandon Whiddett, set out to deliver a tailored tree service that consistently exceeded their customer’s expectations. Today, Treescape’s range of services has grown, expanded and diversified significantly. 

Treescape Australia opened it's doors in 2006, servicing significant contracts in Queensland and New South Wales. 

Treescape proudly encourages the development and promotion of our talented staff into more senior roles within the business. As qualified arboriculture consultants and specialists in green asset management, there is ample choice for new employee working locations and the ability to develop specialist skills in a wide variety of areas. Treescape employee retention is high, especially as staff start moving up the career ladder.

Treescape often celebrates the success of its employees who compete at annual Arboricultural Association Climbing Competitions in New Zealand and Australia, where staff regularly secure first and second place titles. Many more employee achievements are recognised and celebrated regularly and are announced through our Out On A Limb newsletter

New Zealand's Support Office - Treescape's Business Hub

Treescape's main Support Office is located in Otahuhu, Auckland, New Zealand. The Otahuhu depot houses many administrative and management functions, including staff training and competency, fleet and plant management, safety and wellbeing, finance, accounts and IT, and much more. Otahuhu is also home to Treescape’s fabrication workshop, where new plant and equipment is designed and built.

Australia's Support Office 

Treescape Australia's Support Office is located in Wacol, Brisbane, Australia. The Wacol depot is the port of call for   administrative and management functions, and like the Otahuhu depot, has many crews operating out of this location. Wacol also has an onsite fabrication workshop, where new plant and equipment is designed and built.

How Treescape's Depots Work Together

Each Treescape depot is lead by a regional manager, whose job it is to oversee the work that is carried out in their district, or under their key contracts (which could cover vast areas). Each depot may deliver multiple services relating to green asset management, carried out from the one location.

Managers often work together to ensure the best solution is created for our clients, which often involves working together to create a unique solution, bringing together the expertise and equipment from a variety of locations. 

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.
