Nelson Tree Specialists


This week marks the 8-year anniversary for local arboriculture business, Nelson Tree Specialists.
Founded by Louise and Richard Walsh, this young and dynamic couple have worked tirelessly to grow, prune and shape Nelson Tree Specialist’s radiant reputation over the last eight years.

Their love of trees and arboriculture is palpable and it’s this intrinsic passion that has helped the business blossom since its establishment.

Qualified, Experienced & Really Nice Blokes

Many people know Nelson Tree Specialists for their work during the Easter 2014 Nelson Storm, and in particular the monumental Collingwood Street tree; which left a devastating impact for the home owners in its wake. There’s no job (or tree) too big (or small) for this experienced bunch.

Richard has over 18-years experience in tree care, both in the UK as well as New Zealand, and has recruited people who fit with their people-focussed values.
“It’s not just about doing a good job – it’s how you do it. Integrity, respect and trust are integral to our business philosophy. People often comment on what a nice bunch of blokes the boys are and I think that’s because we all genuinely love what we do,” explains Richard.  

Daniel Fisk is one of these people. After completing his apprenticeship under Richard and gaining his qualification in arboriculture, Daniel has developed his expertise and now specialises in large, challenging tree-fells and reductions.
Joshua Dell is another valued team member, who qualified through esteemed arborist training provider, Arbortrim Australia, and worked in Melbourne for several years before establishing his roots with Nelson Tree Specialists. Joshua is a highly skilled arborist specialising in confined space, dead or dangerous tree removals and formative pruning.  Nelson Tree Specialists offer services for all things tree-related, from tree removals, reductions, shaping, pruning and planting to tree consultancy and advice, which is perfect to mitigate any risks with trees involving other parties (such as neighbours), when building or extending, or when dealing with large heritage trees.

Trees are a Property Asset

Trees can add a lot of value to a property – even more so when they are properly maintained by a professional. Nelson Tree Specialists can not only help you to maintain healthy, beautiful trees, the knowledge they provide is invaluable. They can assess all trees on your property so you are aware of any potential risks, as well as the most affordable solutions for you.
