Customer Testimonials

“Brilliant. Rescued us from a fallen tree situation. Very professional service. I can sleep easy now my garden is safe and the neighbours' cars no longer at risk. Cannot recommend enough. Would definitely use again." - customer in Ware, Hertfordshire

“Steve was great, he cut back the conifers all the way down our drive and took away all the cuttings, you wouldn't have known it was done that day! The tops were evened out nicely too. Would recommend.” - customer in Chelmsford, Essex

“Steve was a really nice guy who was friendly and approachable. His work was professional, he did everything we asked for and to a high standard. I can not recommend him highly enough.” - customer in Braintree, Essex

“Great work on the fruit trees in my back garden which were starting to look very overgrown and messy. Price was also extremely reasonable. Also did a great job of the hedges. I’m very happy with my new garden!” - customer in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire

“I've had other traders do work on the tree, but I would regard Steven as the best one. He kept to his quote. He is a tree worker that took care not to damage the tree nor damage anything in the surroundings. He demonstrated great technical skills and did a professional job. I wouldn't go to anybody else.” - customer in Ware, Hertfordshire
