Who we are

Launched in 2003

Roberts Tree Surgeons Ltd is the result of a life-long passion for trees and bucket loads of hard graft by one Paul Roberts. As a company we take pride in being community minded and wherever we can, we make efforts to lessen our environmental impact.

We are fully insured

Our Health and Safety Processes are thorough. We are currently preferred contractors to the company contracted by Gisborne District Council for maintenance of both reserves and street trees in the Gisborne region.
