Our vision

At Tree King our vision is simple; to be the best at what we do.
We are a team of passionate professionals working hard to revolutionise the New Zealand tree services industry through innovation, quality workmanship and value for money. We’re not cowboys trying to make a quick buck. Our clear direction, dedicated team and first-rate service have seen the company rapidly outgrow and outperform many of its competitors.

Great results guaranteed

We pride ourselves on quality, safety, environment and customer focus. Tree King is small enough to provide a very personalised service yet big enough to tackle large jobs safely and efficiently. We take the time to listen to what you’re trying to accomplish and then devise a realistic plan of action to achieve the best results possible. We are so sure you will like the results that we guarantee all work will be carried out to your complete satisfaction!

Looking back

Tree King was founded in 2010 when two already well-established firms Treeline and Stumpmaster merged. Current owner, Luke Cabrol had previously been employed as operations manager and lead climber for four years, before becoming the proud owner in December 2016. Luke’s vision is for Tree King to continue to offer unrivalled professional services in all areas of arboriculture including tree surgery, site clearance and stump grinding.

The right people for the job

At Tree King finding the right people is a very high priority. We have a strong emphasis on training and development and have developed some excellent tree workers. We take pride in our work and strive to give our customers the best possible experience. All our work is in accordance with the latest arboricultural standards.

Our team

Here at Tree King we know how important people are to an organisation. We’ve worked hard to put together a dedicated team of professionals with varied skill sets and qualifications. Our staff undergo frequent training to ensure constant development and high levels of competence in all areas of their jobs.

Luke Cabrol


Hailing from the UK, Luke’s first job in arboriculture allowed him to gain valuable and transferable skills for both small and large scale projects. Once fully qualified he was quickly promoted to foreman and managed both domestic and commercial projects.
Luke came to New Zealand in 2008. During his initial four years with Tree King he conducted staff training and business development. Luke also gained his NZQA National Certificate in Arboriculture (Level 4 – Advanced) as well as furthering his knowledge of the New Zealand arboricultural industry.
Luke is the proud owner of two successful arboriculture companies in Auckland, Arbcon Ltd and Tree King.

Tree King holds independently audited certification in Safety, Environmental and Quality standards. We are committed to maintaining the highest performance in all parts of our operation with a focus on continuous  improvement in our business systems.

Happy Clients

We have been working with Tree King for the last five years.  During this time we have found them efficient, co-operative and very safety conscience during any tree removal.  They are polite and professional to deal with.  We thoroughly recommend Tree King and its staff for a great job well done.
