Tree removal, tree and bush trimming.
Absolutely outstanding in every respect! Jim came round quickly to give a quote and agree a date for the work to be carried out. As it happened we needed him sooner than expected to remove a tree that was pushing a wall over, so he fitted us in between other jobs and saved the day. The remainder of the work was carried out sooner than expected to a very high standard. Extremely satisfied with the friendly, expert and tidy service we have received. Very highly recommended.
