About Us

Who are we?

Auckland Tree Masters is owned and operated by Matt Baird.

Matt has 15 years experience as an arborist. Prior to owning Auckland Tree Masters he had an arborist business in Australia for 4 years where he specialised in difficult access areas climbing trees no one else wanted to. He also has worked for a number of orchards and also New Zealand Rose Company. So while Auckland Tree Masters can safely remove large difficult trees, they also have a great deal of experience with finer garden work such as rose pruning.

Auckland Tree Masters offer pensioner discounts and would be happy to give a free quote, advice or an arborist’s report with prompt, professional and friendly service.

What makes us different?

  1. Sick of tradespeople that don’t phone you back? We know how frustrating it can be waiting around wondering if you’ll hear back from someone. Our guarantee: Phone us for a quote on (0800) 426 791 and we’ll call you back by 10am tomorrow (at the very latest) or you get $150 off your quote. (Monday to Friday)
  2. We make a point of leaving your grounds as tidy as when we arrived. When we remove a tree, we remove all branch chippings and leaf blow all other waste from paths etc. Some customers even say their grounds are tidier than when we arrived!
  3. Auckland Tree Masters has $5,000,000 public liability insurance unlike many other arborists who may only have $1,000,000. Which, with the price of housing today just isn’t enough insurance coverage. Not that we’ve ever had to make a claim due to our stringent safety policies and practices.
  4. Aboriculture is more than just a business to owner Matt Baird. He is passionate about plants both big and small and spends his spare time in his own large garden and orchard. So you can be confident he will treat your garden with the same care and respect he does his own.
  5. We also give pensioner discounts as a way of saying thank you to an important part of our community.

What do our clients say?

“I highly recommend Auckland Tree Masters to any potential clients. Matt is a highly skilled individual and a true professional which clearly shows in his work. My willow resembled a manicured bonzi tree once he had finished with it. Not only was the quality of the work outstanding the tree’s were felled and chipped in such a fast and efficient manner I was blown away. Matt went the extra mile which is a rear find this day and age. If your looking for all these qualities stated above in a arborist then Matt is your man.” – Steve Turner

“We would just to like to thank you for your continued support of our services. Your donation of extensive amounts of timber suitable for firewood processing has been hugely beneficial to us. As you are aware our service employs men with an intellectual disability and every little bit helps to keep our service running. We have really appreciated your support in the past and look forward to this continuing in the future.” – Maureen White – Matea Trust

“We would thoroughly recommend Matt of Auckland Tree Masters. He stands out from the rest with his professionalism, manners, efficiency and skills. We had our concerns regarding a large cedar on our property we wanted felled. He took the job on with care and skill; the tree was downed in a flash, and he did an excellent job of cleaning up afterwards. Thanks Matt!” – Shelly Draga

I have used Auckland Tree Masters services several times and I’ve always been impressed with the result and the price. The first time was to do major tree work as the property I bought had very big trees that meant my house got very little sun. The difference was amazing. Since then i have gotten them back to do yearly maintenance pruning, partly to maintain my sea views, and partly to keep my trees and shrubs looking good. I was extremely happy with the way they cleaned up after themselves – you could hardly tell they had been there and done so much – they even blew the sawdust out of my guttering! So thorough – I’ve recommended them to my friends as well.

Had three competitive quotes to prune large trees but chose Auckland Tree Masters because I was impressed by the free information on their website plus Matt’s obvious knowledge and passion for his work. Efficient service and clean up thanks – have recommended to neighbours.

I had a tree blow down on my house due to high winds at about 1:30am. and having tried a number of other arborists in the vicinity and being turned down. I managed to come across Auckland Tree Masters, Who was only to happy to come out and cut it up to make my house and yard safe until morning. He came back in the morning. He chipped the small wood and left the big wood cut into rings for firewood, and left the job finished up beautifully. A+++ awesome Job thanks for getting out in the middle of the night Matt. Much appreciated.
