  2. Hi there, I'm going out to New Zealand from the UK around September time for a month or so to see some family and was wondering if it was possible to find some work whilst i'm there to see whether I would like to potentially work out there for a longer period of time. I have 4 and a half years experience. My qualifications are; Level 2&3 Arb. Chainsaw maintenance and crosscutting. Felling. Aerial rescue. Chainsaw from rope and harness. Rigging. Aerial pruning. Felling large trees. Stump grinding. I have a few more additional ones also. Hope someone can help! Thanks Adam.
  3. Hi guys, I'm currently looking to relocate to NZ with the wife and kids and looking for advice regarding visas i.e. does anyone know if treescape pay all the fees or do I need to go through a immigration expert first? Also has anyone done this route? Or have any contacts that either have done or companies that sponsor guys? Cheers
  4. Planning ahead a little i know but... I'm heading to New Zealand in the New year and just starting to piece things together, decided i want to base around in or Queenstown as i'm well into my mountain biking and the riding scene there is huge. Has anybody who has made the trip in the past have any advice for me? Also what is demand like over there for our industry? I have 4 years climbing experience for my dads business and helped him manage it also, (pricing, dealing with customers, maintaining equipment,etc,etc). Decided if i don't do it now why i've no commitments then i'll only regret in the future. Cheers!
  5. I'm moving to New Zealand to Nelson this month for at least a year, maybe more depending on what happens. I'm hoping to carry on as a self-employed climber and my cousin(a forester) want help setting up an arb team, but I imagine work will be very slow there too begin with. Does anyone have any idea of the best way to get climbing kit over(harness,helmet,boots,rope,lanyard,krabs and pulleys etc) without paying tons for an additional heavy bag in hold luggage I was thinking posting might be cheaper than a per KG airline fee but I don't know if I'd have to pay an import tax on it? Also looking for advice on travel and Personal accident insurance if anyone has any recommendations that would be hugely appreciated! If anyone has any recommendations for a good NZ tree ID book and P+D book that would also be a great help! Also with banking do I need to open an account in NZ or will my UK internet banking be alright? What tax might I need to pay if I'm only there for a year? And will NZ sim cards work in any UK phone? Thanks in advance!!!
  6. Recently landed in New Zealand and working in Auckland. Absolutly loving it!

  9. So moving to work in New Zealand has been a daunting but simple process and well worth it! As expected there are epic landscapes everywhere here. I've got a few small tips for anyone looking to do so to make it a bit easier: To work you need a bank account and IRD number: I opened an account at kiwi bank which is really straight forward and most of it can be done online. You need an ID and proof of address. If you're staying with friends or family you need them to give you signed a letter stating you live there with a utility bill with their address on. IRD offshore or non-resident application form. You'll need your UTR (unique taxpayers reference) number from the UK and your ID. You can complete the IRD form at the bank when you go in to open the account. They had a good look at my kit on the way in but it was all fine and worth the hours cleaning. Make sure you get rid of any signs of sawdust and anything which could be a tiny seed. I put my ropes etc in a bag on a cool wash and cleaned all krabs etc thoroughly. Tree kit is very expensive here up to 2x the price (regardless of the exchange rate) so unless you are going to be employed I'd recommend bringing pulleys karabiners and rope with you or get a friend to post stuff as a gift to avoid customs costs. Tree kit here can be bought at http://treetools.co.nz/ or https://www.metrogreen.co.nz/ I haven't found any other good sites yet. The food here is 3x the price unless you go hunting and fishing which is free! So be prepared for that. Rent is also pricey but I'm in Nelson which is apparently a sort-after location you can check prices on www.trademe.co.nz which is like ebay/gumtree with things, jobs and vehicles. I've found some small tree ID books that are OK for a quick reference but nothing comprehensive like the UKs Collins Tree ID book. I'm keeping an eye out. There's no need for insurance whilst working for another company. You are covered by ACC and the reciprocal agreement. https://www.health.govt.nz/new-zealand-health-system/eligibility-publicly-funded-health-services/reciprocal-health-agreements Vodaphone is the main service provider on the south island and you can buy a sim card and plan at the airport upon arrival.
  10. I have been living and working in Auckland for 8 months now and my working holiday is due to expire in late January next year and i have the option to extend my visa for another year and wanting to move out of auckland to a different part of new zealand to spend my second year. I will be traveling for the next 3 months down to places like wellington , nelson , queens town,Christchurch etc for the rest of my current visa duration and thinking of while i'm down in those areas to contact some tree companies to enquire about any work that will be available come next January when i will have my second visa granted so i can re-locate and start work straight away in my desired area. not particulary fussy about what area i will move to just aslong as there is work there available but preferably somewhere in the south-island however ive heard work down there is more scare down there and not alot of companies so was thinking maybe the capital city wellington. if any body who can give me any help or if theres anyone currently in NZ who knows of any vaccanies anywhere other than Auckland then if you could let me know then it would be much appreciated. Cheers Joe.

  13. Hi all, Looking for some good advice in getting forestry/ground work in New Zealand starting around September if possible? Not fussy about where I'm based as I've been before to play rugby and it's all good! Currently work for a firewood firm at supervisor level of which I do all the felling myself so I'm very used to hard work. Looking into forwarding/harvester but training costs are astronomical in the UK! Got my CS30,31,32,38, UA1 and emergency first aid. Will hopefully have UA2.1 & 5, CS39, pruning and chipper tickets by September (money permitting!) Would it be best to sort a job first or just go out with a visa? Any work/visa advice no matter how big or small would be really useful. Cheers

  16. Hi Everyone, I’m looking for some help in changing my career and hopefully becoming an avid member of this forum. I’m currently 24 and based in the west midlands, I’m looking to become a qualified Arborist with the intention of moving to New Zealand within the next 2 years. I have no previous experience in the industry. I’d like to hear your guys advice on the below if possible? • Do UK tickets mean anything in NZ? I have asked this question to potential employers abroad • Is it worthwhile me training in the UK or should I just start fresh in NZ? • I was thinking of doing the Proclimber course but due to the financial commitment I need to be sure of its benefit to me now and for when I move • Do you feel that the course would be a good method for me to enter the trade • What could I do within the UK to increase my employability in the industry in NZ and for my time working here in the UK? This is not just a whim for me, I’m really dedicated on changing my career to something that I love and I’m willing to invest and do what it takes. I’m just looking for some input from people in the know. Any help is really appreciated, Luke

  19. Hi I'm a New Zealand arborist moving to the UK very shortly and am looking for some insight into the crossover of qualifications. Are there any Kiwis on here that have worked in the UK , or any Brits that have worked in NZ? I currently have the Otago Polytech Level 4 Arboriculture Certificate. Many of the jobs I have looked at in England say you need the NPTC Units CS30, 31, 38 and 39. Does anyone know what these are and if my qualifications are equivalent? Any piece of info would be helpful
