Reviews

I found Craig by chance when I saw him doing some work on my neighbour's tree so I walked over and kindly asked him for a quote to remove 4 elm trees that was in front of my house. He spoke to me in a friendly and professional manner and his quote was very reasonable. He turned up on time with his colleague and did a fantastic job. I was very impressed how they cleaned everything up afterwards and not making a single mess. I would definitely recommend Craig to anyone who wants tree surgery services in the local area, and I would definitely use Craig again.

-Matthews Electrical

It's rare to find a tradesperson who turns up when expected. Craig was on time on both occasions he was due. He and Phil clearly carried out the work professionally and safely, in difficult circumstances removing two 50 foot trees in an awkward position. after completion, they cleaned up, leaving everything as tidy as they found it. Start to finish professional service. Thank you. highly recommended.

-Paul Clarke

Fantastic job! Craig was very efficient, removing a fir tree from our garden that had got out of hand. The whole area was left very tidy and with the stump also removed I can start redesigning and planting very soon. It was a good job well done and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. Thank you Craig.

-Kay Hancock

From beginning to end Craig was absolutely brilliant. He came out to give me a quote at exactly date and time he said he would and again on the day of work. I had a silver birch that was over 30 years old very tall and in a confined area plus with school access to contend with, also had very large bramble bush removed and another small tree which the silver birch had hidden underneath! Craig and his workmate completely removed everything in the time frame they said. Throughout all very polite friendly team excellent job I am so pleased that I hired them. Job well done thank you!

-Caz G

Very personable and helpful! Fantastic work carried out, removing a large, dead Willow Tree, plus trimming large Laurel trees. All work completed efficiently, safely and with care throughout - very professional. Both sites left tidy on departure. I would recommend Craig and his team and I look forward to contacting him again in the future!

-Emma Bruce

Craig and Ryan removed boughs from 2 large trees overhanging our garden. They were brilliant. They were professional, very tidy and listened to our request and understood our expectations of what we wanted removed. I would recommend them to anyone needing tree surgery. Thanks Craig & Ryan for giving us light again in our house.
