About Us

Marc Doyle began his tree surgery in 1984 establishing his business by his own name. 25 Years of a great reputation transformed Marc Doyle Treework into a brand when the company changed hands.

My name is Chris Corfe and I became the new owner and operator of Marc Doyle Treework when I returned from the UK in 2009.

I had worked with Marc years before, while studying (National Certificate in Arboriculture) at WINTEC, in Hamilton. The knowledge and experience Marc shared was invaluable. After qualifying I spent time contracting and managing an arboricultural team in England. The exposure to large, technical jobs built on my experience even further, that when I returned to New Zealand in 2009 I was ready to take on the business. Having previously worked for Marc, I was lucky to have already met so many of the regular customers but it was vital that I made the transition seamless, by retaining and building the high level of quality his customers were used to.

My staff share the same enthusiasm and fascination for trees, and are fantastic to work with. I support any opportunity for self-development because we are all driven by the qualifications and skills we have acquired. Recently we have found many exciting opportunities for change. We are progressing with new ideas, improved equipment and technology to deliver an experience, as well as great service to our customers.

  • I had been asking my husband for months to do something about our overgrown garden. I came home one day and the difference was startling. I had to check to see where the trees had been as there was no mess, just light and space. Thank you so much for a fantastic job and for such a reasonable price.

  • The lads from Marc Doyle Treework knew what they were doing and got the job done quickly and safely, and even complimented my wife's coffee! Good job!

  • Thank you for the very professional job you did in removing the two large trees from the property adjoining our apartment. The work was done in an efficient and timely manner with minimum disruption to the residents using the driveway. I would certainly recommend your company to my friends and associates.
