While there are many Auckland arborists whom you may consider for your specific tree removal job, there are many things you should be aware of. Many factors may determine which arborist in Auckland you should hire but experience, equipment and a broad portfolio must always be considered. 

Does your arborist carry public liability insurance? Has your arborist been operating for decades at a high level of customer quality? These are the kinds of questions you need to ask when exploring your options. 

This blog will take you through the ins and outs of what makes the best arborist in Auckland. As a proud Kiwi-owned and operating arborist who has been in business for over twenty years, A1 Sure Services knows a thing or two about delivering exceptional tree service results for happy customers. 

Let’s begin the journey of finding the best arborist in Auckland! 

Qualifications and Certifications:

Is Your Auckland Arborist Qualified and Certified?

As Kiwis, we always assume that most jobs can be DIY or approach tree maintenance with a “she’ll be right” attitude. While this is definitely applicable to many aspects of life, tree care and arborist services are best left to the professionals. 

At A1 Sure Services, we can promise you that all of our team have the relevant qualifications and certifications to carry out high-quality tree services on your private or commercial properties. Whether it’s one tree removed or a hectare of trees removed, rest assured that A1 Sure Services brings the qualifications to tackle any job effectively. 

Is Your Auckland Arborist Insured?

Aside from safety, this is the main reason why we do not promote a DIY approach to tree removal or arborist services. Insurance is a must-have for any arborist you approach, as this will give you the peace of mind of knowing that if the worst happens, you’re still covered. The last thing you want to be dealing with is destroyed property which you are liable to pay for. 

A1 Sure Services can be your go-to insured arborist to assist with whatever tree-related task you need to be carried out on your property. We carry a public liability cover of up to $2,000,000 to give all of our customers the comfort of knowing that we have a safety net in the highly unlikely event something goes pear-shaped.
