Lyall Jemmett is a man who knows all about trees and tree care. A qualified arborist, Lyall returned home to Ashburton nine years ago and started Four Seasons Treecare, which is now a team of five qualified and trained specialists who work throughout Mid Canterbury. Although much of his work is shaping and pruning trees and stump removal, Lyall says that one of his more unusual jobs was dangling high above Lyttleton in a crane topping trees that impeded views of the harbour. He's very proud of the work he does maintaining many turn-of-the-century old established trees in the district. "It's a real privilege working in the domain and at historic homesteads and high country stations and to think that I'm helping to preserve these trees for the next hundred years."ï¿½ With his state-of-the-art equipment, Lyall and his team are available for private and commercial work, big and small, and are always happy to provide good advice on everything from planting to mulching, tree removal and more.
