McDonnell's Tree Trim Ltd.

McDonnell’s Tree Trim has been around for over 30 years. What started out with Jonno McDonnell, his Echo chainsaw and fuel cans stuck in the back seat of the Hillman Hunter, has evolved into a well-established, organised shelter belt maintenance company with years of experience behind us.

Early in the history books Jonno bought Mainpowers old Bedford bucket truck and took the boys, and various others out to help top shelter belts, fell trees and clear power lines. Always wanting to get a lot done in a hurry, it wasn’t long before he wanted some sort of machine to get those tree lines knocked into shape a better way. A tree trimming machine was built up on a Ford County. Slashers and saws, flails and multi saw heads all came and went through various trials and errors.

Now, the current McDonnell’s, Ashton, Suzanne, Gareth, and their team carry on the job with the 3 truck based tree trimmers and the benefit of hard-won know-how gained over all those years. We pride ourselves on the variety of jobs we handle, the terrain we can access, and the repeat work that keeps us busy year on year.

Our Hurunui Based truck-based hedge cutting machines have the stability & versatility to provide the best quality tree trimming. They have huge work rates and out on the farm typically power through 2 to 3 times the volume of work compared to tractor or digger based units. Each machine has both a saw & flail cutter on board. The saw can reduce the mess and is safer around your home while the flail cutter provides crisper, cleaner finishes, and minimizes horrible-looking hang-ups. 

The flail is super fast and in the hands of our talented operators the debris can still be kept nice & tidy. The machines can tuck in tight for cutting down laneways or reach out meters over obstacles and up high to the tallest regularly maintained shelterbelts. We’re all about the perfect balance between efficiency, good-looking finishes, and tidy debris left behind us.
