The Team

The Team

At Tree King we know how important people are to an organisation.

We’ve worked hard to put together a dedicated team of professionals with varied skill sets and qualifications. Our staff undergo frequent training to ensure constant development and high levels of competence in all areas of their jobs.

Luke Cabrol

Luke Cabrol

National Certificate in Arboriculture (Level 4 – Advanced)


Hailing from the UK, Luke’s first job in arboriculture allowed him to gain valuable and transferable skills for both small and large scale projects. Once fully qualified he was quickly promoted to foreman and managed both domestic and commercial projects.

Luke came to New Zealand in 2008. During his initial four years with Tree King he conducted staff training and business development. He also gained his National Certificate in Arboriculture (Level 4 – Advanced) and furthered his knowledge of the New Zealand arboricultural industry.

Luke is the proud owner of two successful Auckland-based arboriculture companies: Arbcon Ltd and Tree King.

“We have been working with Tree King for the last five years.  During this time we have found them efficient, co-operative and very safety conscience during any tree removal.  They are polite and professional to deal with.  We thoroughly recommend Tree King and its staff for a great job well done.”
