one of New Zealand's leading chemical applicators

Since Cambrilea was founded in Waikato in 1997, the quality of our work allowed Cambrilea Weed Spraying Services Limited to grow into one of the largest registered weed spraying contractors in New Zealand.

The company bears the name of the town where it was founded (Cambridge) and our founder, Charlie Lea.

Charlie is supported by a highly qualified team. This includes his wife, Helen, who holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree and has worked as head landscape architect for Hamilton City Council for many years. Her expertise is especially valuable for Cambrilea’s riparian planting and releasing service.


Everyone on our team is GROWSAFE ® accredited and approved handlers. We hold first aid Site Safe and Level 1 Traffic Controller Certificates.

Cambrilea already has hundreds of satisfied clients, ranging from agriculture, regional councils, quarries, utility companies, ecological sanctuaries and reserves.

We look forward to be of service to you too!
