Mike Power has always had a love of trees ...now it's his business.
Tell us about your background?
I spent almost five years training with Asplundh, in Auckland City contract zone A022, east of the motorway down to Otahuhu. I worked in the Auckland Domain, Parnell Rose Gardens, and all the other parks and street trees including 18 months on the insulated bucket truck for Vector assets.
I launched and ran my own company…it went like a rocket and my business partner’s wife wanted it for themselves. It’s still running. I next ran my own plumbing business for several years. My latest business Growth Maintenance has been servicing clients for two years.
What services can you provide?

You mention a maintenance schedule. Can you elaborate?
GM designs and provides regular maintenance programmes for properties. This involves designing and implementing economic maintenance with intervals to economically maintain a property’s trees and hedges to current or improved standards.
How do you price jobs?
