New Zealanders can expect to see Treescape® vehicles out and about during lockdown – but only to carry out essential services.
“We are a supplier to lifeline utilities and need to support those who deliver our country’s electricity, gas, water, wastewater, telecommunications, road and rail infrastructure by maintaining and protecting their infrastructure when it comes to vegetation,” says Treescape® CEO James Fletcher.
All other non-essential work, including commercial and residential jobs, have ceased until the Government signals the end of the lockdown period.
Fletcher says, “We are mindful of our obligations to the country to maintain our infrastructure but will do so in a way that does not put our people or the public at risk.”
Treescape® has implemented a detailed Pandemic and Business Continuity Plan. Where possible, staff are working from home and those still involved in essential services are operating under strict social distancing, PPE and hygiene guidelines.
“If you see our team out and about carrying out these essential services, feel free to smile and wave at them but please don’t approach them as we are committed to health and safety and following the 2m social distancing rule set out by Government.”
Treescape® provides arboricultural consultancy services for development sites including residential, commercial, industrial, health, education and community developments.
Founded in 1981, Treescape® was created with little more than a Volkswagen Beetle and a couple of chainsaws to remove or prune trees and trim hedges. Today, Treescape® employs over 600 people throughout Australasia. As certified tree arborists and environmental consultants, our goal is to lead the way in Green Asset Management throughout New Zealand and Australia.
