How we started
Director of OrangOtang Tree Trimmers, Regan Davies, moved up to Mangawhai in his late teens after spending numerous summer holidays in Mangawhai with his family and friends.
Regan spent his youth working hard doing lawn mowing rounds, and providing garden supplies, his passion has always been with the tree industry.
In 2001 Regan ventured out and bought his first chipper and ute and created “Regan’s Tree Work” where he looked after Mangawhai locals and smaller out of town work. In 2008 he bought Orang-Otang Tree Trimmers from Warkworth and merged the two companies. This gave Regan the opportunity to branch out and expand his business and cater for a wider field of the tree work industry.
Regan’s passion for trees and his determination has helped him grow and manage his business into a successful company with a renowned reputation for highly skilled workmanship and excellent customer service.
Into the Future
With the continued growth of the company along with the highly skilled team Orang-Otang Tree Trimmers has expanded further North with two branches now, one based in Mangawhai and one based in Kerikeri. Orang-Otang now services from North Auckland to Cape Reinga and employees over 16 people. The team consists of qualified and experienced arborists, digger operators, tree fellers, chainsaw operators, groundsmen, apprentices in training and an office and management team. The Orang-Otang team are dedicated, professional, passionate about trees and plants and are highly skilled in their field.

There are also several chippers ranging in size to allow chipping of just about anything.
The company’s extensive Health and Safety Management System and continued team training and professional development gives our team the first-hand knowledge and tools needed in this very dangerous and busy industry.
It is fair to say that Regan Davies is a strong inspirational man driven by success and a passion for the industry.
