The team put in an amazing effort today, I am really impressed- and with the cost too! Please thank the team again from me- I did express appreciation earlier, but it’s worth repeating. I’ve had a few arborists in over the years and without a doubt your team is by far the most professional, friendly and hard working- I’ll definitely recommend you to anyone who asks.

Symbiosis responded to the urgency of the job – very greatful for that. The guys were competent, efficient and did a great job at a very competitive price.

Many thanks for such a great job. We were very impressed by your team – professional, considerate and very skilled. We have passed your card to friends who will need some tree work in the coming months.

Greg & Kate Healey

We went up to our bach today and we are delighted with the job you and your team have done. Many thanks. It was great to have some more sunshine into the back of the property.

Liz & Ross Jewell

Thanks so much for the very professional and efficient job of pruning our massive avocado tree.

It is amazing what you have both done. It’s great. We are very grateful, and for your clean up job and leaving the avocados.

The Pines Golf Club contracted Symbiosis to cut down and clean up two large macrocarpa trees. They were situated in a position which called for skilled felling as no damage to greens or tees was paramount. This work was carried out promptly and with a high degree of efficiency. We could not be more pleased with the results as the site was left clean and undamaged at a price we could afford. We have no hesitation in recommending Symbiosis as reliable and trustworthy contractors.

We were delighted with the work & the fact that the property was always left in a clean and tidy state at the end of each day. We were particularly impressed that the pine trees were felled, moved and extracted exactly as requested, with no damage to the surrounding young native trees & have no hesitation in recommending Symbiosis Tree Services.

I am very happy with the work that was done for me by Darren from “Symbiosis”

He is a rare bred, ie he turns up when he says he’s going to, is tidy in his workmanship, and communicates throughout the process. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wanting a quality job done.

We most highly recommend Darren and his Symbiosis Tree Services colleagues.  Their work on the trees and plants in our dense bush section over three hot days was simply outstanding.

Darren’s approach was professional, skilled, considered and responsive.  His charges honest and competitive.

We will certainly have no hesitation in seeking his tree services when we need them in the future.

Clive and Ann

We definitely recommend Darren for any tree work. He is punctual, obliging and is an excellent communicator.  Once he had completed the job he left the property tidier than he found it!

Sue & Garth

Thank you for the prompt quote and work completion at our property at McLeod Bay in March. It was a pleasure to find that after one on-site meeting, you were able to complete the work to the standard expected. We were delighted with your workmanship and ultimately the outcome.

It is also good that you are able to do a fixed price quote. (Without this we would not have felt confident to go ahead with such an extensive plan.)

Dear Darren

Thank you for organising a great clean up of my garden.  You must feel very proud of your team  – Cam and Toby did a very quick and efficient job.  I would recommend their work to everyone!
Thanks again for a lovely clean job.

I do need to say that Darren and his team were a pleasure to deal with.  The ‘boys’ on the day were courteous, fast and careful and checked with us before each aspect of the job. I also appreciate the deduction for the work around the barbecue that we decided to do ourselves. We are very happy with the outcome.

Kamo Wildlife Sanctuary has no hesitation in recommending Symbiosis Tree Services. They are very reliable, safe and flexible. We are not an “ordinary” place of work and they were great. They were committed to getting our work done and stuck to our timelines and any other requirements. We will have them back again for our annual “tree check” without a doubt.

Neil and I want to thank the team at Symbiosis Tree Services for the great job they did at our property. The driveway looks so much better and the other trees on the section are looking  great  after their tidy up. Well done!
