Arbor Culture NZ Ltd are a family-run tree-surgery team who are residential specialists.

The company was founded in 2002, and has been servicing the Western BOP ever since. Husband & Wife team Willy & Jade Smith took over Arbor Culture in early 2019, bringing fresh energy and a wealth of experience. They remain based in Katikati.

Willy has been employed in the arboriculture industry for more than 18 years. He’s a fully-qualified Arborist, and has worked on all manner of jobs; from confined, high-risk fellings that were adjacent to buildings; up to large-scale, ‘old-man tree’ pruning tasks. Willy has seen almost everything.


We have a great little tipper truck and a 6” mulcher that fulfills most of our needs. Chainsaws, ropes and tackle make up the difference! On the occasion that our clients want something out of our reach, we’re well connected in the industry and can arrange extra equipment.
