WE'VE GROWN FROM HUMBLE ROOTS
High Country Contracting is an established pest management company with over a decade of industry experience. With offices in South Canterbury and Otago, we have the capabilities and expertise to service the entire South Island on all sizes of control operations.
Drawn together through a passion and a love of the outdoors, our aim is to protect New Zealand’s primary industries from a range of introduced pests and diseases while also working to regenerate our native flora and fauna.
With an experienced management structure and ever growing team of skilled employees, supplemented with well qualified and dedicated subcontractors, we are confident of managing any sized project.
In an industry often known for ‘slap-dash’ operators, we will plan, execute and manage every aspect from start to finish whilst keeping you informed every step of the way. This includes extensive follow up communication to ensure we have met your requirements.
We aim to provide a professional, innovative and fresh approach to the delivery of pest plant control (including large scale wilding conifers), possum and predator control, and feral pig & deer surveys across a range of landscapes in the South Island.
Health and Safety practices and the protection of native flora and fauna are our priority in all operations we undertake.
