“GPFS (General and Protection Forestry Services) have been doing contract pest plant work for myself (the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council) for over fifteen years. I came to GPFS because they are a small local company who live and play in Hawke’s Bay, who have taken ownership and pride in the areas they work in. I’m very happy with the standard of work that GPFS has provided the HBRC over this time, in what can be a difficult physical environment, as well as the high safety standards set by Kevin and Belinda Humphreys and their sub-contractors.

They’re happy to take on any job, big or small, and always seem to have access to the skills and equipment to ensure these tasks are performed to a high standard in an efficient way.
I fully intend to use GPFS in the foreseeable future.”

“I have been working with the Humphreys family for close to 30 years now, firstly with Clive and Ellen and more recently with Kevin and Belinda. They have helped me with general forestry work ranging from planting, releasing, pruning and thinning through to fire fighting, fencing, pest control and weed spraying.

I have found them to be hard and honest workers, sincere and reliable. I have especially enjoyed their whole family approach to the work as this resonates with our own approach to work. I have no problem recommending them to prospective clients and have pleasure in directly employing them myself when project managing work for my own forestry clients.”



“I have had the services of GPFS for Approx 10 yrs. They have supplied me with skilled personnel & great health & safety standards. The trust covers such jobs as drainage under scrubbing planting ultra high pruning Plus thinning. The trust looks forward to continuing this relationship with GPFS for many years to come.”
