Chris McNamara from Tree Magicians did a great job at my Hataitai property, trimming overgrown trees on difficult terrain. He provided great advice, a prompt and friendly service at sharp pricing. I’d recommend you have Chris provide a quote for your next tree trimming project. Many thanks Chris.

We would have no hesitation in recommending chris of Tree Magicians. He was thoroughly professional and consulted us throughout the tree trimming/topping process which was reassuring. We are extremely happy with our trees now because they look fab!!.
