COVID-19 Update – Treetech provides essential services to roading, housing and utilities
Treetech, an industry leader in urban forest management, will be clearly visible during the COVID-19 lockdown period as it continues to provide essential and emergency services throughout Canterbury.
“We are an essential services supplier to roading, housing and utility companies.” Said Chris Walsh, Managing Director of Treetech. “We will be working very closely with utility companies to ensure power is available at all times by minimizing the risk of outages caused by vegetation.”
Treetech remains available for emergency call outs. All other non-essential work, including commercial and residential projects, have ceased until the Government signals the end of the enforced isolation period.
“Above all else, our team is our priority” said Walsh. “We have worked tirelessly in the run up to the COVID-19 lockdown to ensure the process and procedures we have in place do not put our employees or the public at risk.”
The processes outlined in Treetech’s emergency response plan clearly define hygiene guidelines, social distancing and use of personal protective equipment for crews. The remainder of Treetech’s team are working from home, in isolation, in accordance with the Government’s level-4 contingency plan.
“If you see our teams out and about working on local infrastructure give them a wave as they are going the extra mile for all of us” said Walsh. “Please don’t approach them simply keep your distance. Your support will help them through the day, which in turn helps all of us stay safe, warm and with Netflix.”
