Mindful Arboriculture

Valuing and integrating the following attributes in all we do


Chris Corfe

Managing Director

NCA Level 4 Arb/Hort, City and Guilds UK Arboricultural Diploma Level 2, Member NZAA

I worked with Marc Doyle in 2007, while studying 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 for two years. The exposure to large, technical jobs built on my experience even further. When I returned to New Zealand in 2009 I bought the business off Marc. I was lucky to have already met so many of the regular clients but it was vital that I made the transition seamless, by retaining and building the high level of quality his customers were used to.

Our team 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 growth. We are progressing with new ideas, improved equipment, technology and processes to deliver an experience, as well as great service to our clients.

In my time spent away from Marc Doyle Treework I enjoy: 
Rock climbing, mountain biking, skiing, guitar, and clay-bird shooting.

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don't know about?
I can do an amazing Donald Duck impression.

I worked for Marc Doyle Treework in 2010 while studying my Level 4 Certificate then moved to Tauranga, where my wife is from, for the birth of our daughter.

I worked for Arborcare in Tauranga for 6 years before moving back to the Waikato in 2017 to take up a management position here at Marc Doyle Treework.

Linda Dreadon


NZ Certificate in Horticulture Level 4 (Arboriculture)

I am a kiwi girl with a background in dairy farming and sales. Studying Level 3 Arboriculture at Wintec in 2017, along with Environmental Studies through the Open Polytechnic 2017/18 is a challenge that I am glad I took on. This commitment has led me to work with the awesome team at Marc Doyle Treework where I am now completing NZC Arboriculture (Level 4) through Primary ITO from July 2019

I love that my job gets me outside every day, and that no two days are the same. I am excited to learn more about tree care and maintenance from the Marc Doyle crew.

Wade Black


Level 3 Certificate in Arboriculture (in progress)

I've had seven years experience in the industry. Four years as a groundsman and three years climbing as an arborist where all my training has been on the job.

I became and arborist because I wanted a challenge and I'm an adrenaline seeker. 

Away from work I love spending time with my daughter, skateboarding, and fishing. I also love sports.

I'm a Hamiltonian born and raised. Although I ventured to the U.K for a GAP year working in an outdoor activity centre and traveled a bit through Europe, I know my roots will always be in the Waikato. 

I'm proud to be using my skills and education to help grow and develop a local business, whose focus is not only on looking after the natural environment but is also committed to it's staff, their development and their safety. All while contributing to the local economy. 

I have been with the team at Marc Doyle Treework since July 2018 being the face/voice of the company as the first point of contact while creating the Office Manager/Administrator role. In between the day-to-day admin I have been developing systems to streamline the business for growth. I have just recently started a family of my own and am learning to juggle working full-time while being a mum.
