New Plymouth is a small city with a temperate climate situated at the foot of a very dominant volcano on the far west corner of the North Island of New Zealand. The city services and extremely economically potent agricultural sector and mining sector, and as the hub for a number of towns that ring the mountain.
The city has a very green appearance, as successive councils have managed to retain a large amount of native forestry within the city boundary, and have also been diligent about planting trees throughout the city and on the environs. There are a lot of beautiful native and exotic trees in and around New Plymouth, and these all need to be maintained, especially after a severe storm which generally occurs at least once per year.
The city is well served by the arborist sector, and any homeowner, business owner, Council or farmer can find a suitable arborist for their particular problem simply by searching online for arborist New Plymouth. While there are some arborists who specialise in certain sectors such as commercial forestry, most of the arborist listed will work for residential, commercial, farming and Forestry groups.
The arborist is by definition the highly specialised trade, where the arborist needs a very good understanding of the types of trees they are looking after and how best to prune and manage them. They also need a very good understanding and be qualified for full safety operation given that they are dealing with a lot of dangerous situations in their job and dealing with a dangerous machine, the chainsaw. The arborist needs to be fit and strong and comfortable with working at heights hanging from a rope up a tree and they need to be very confident and proficient in the operation of their chainsaw.
The real differentiation between different arborist companies is really around the skill level of the staff and how productive they can be while being 100 safe. The productivity difference between a highly productive team and an average team can be vast. And the very best teams can operate at least twice as efficiently as the rest. This means that the very best teams can quote considerably lower for any work, plus can command a higher hourly rate than other companies for the work.
The absolute key for a professional and very efficient arborist company is to have highly skilled and qualified staff particularly in the areas of operating a chainsaw, tree climbing and the operation of the tree grabbing digger. A second major requirement is to simply have very good equipment and machinery that basically never breaks down. While the good equipment and machinery can simply be purchased, the high quality staff need to be attracted, trained and retained.
There is always a battle for very good stuff between the various arborist companies, but the very best companies also have a very intensive an integrated training and qualification program. The reason for this is very simple, and it is that their entire business future depends on their stuff.
