  • Reduce large ash tree by 25% and take away branches and leaves

    10Verified Review

    An excellent professional company .After contacting check a trade Wayne came and gave a quote the next day which was acceptable.As the tree was in a conservation area all the paperwork and application was made to the council for the work to take place. Due to frequent bad weather we were kept fully informed when the work took place. 3 men came who were friendly and polite and the work was completed in a timely manner and the area left clean and tidy even clearing up the leaves that had fallen weeks ago.They are a credit to the company and couldn't recommend them more .

  • Major renovation and trimming of all trees in the garden

    10Verified Review

    The About Trees team were knowledgeable and helpful, explaining clearly why one kind of tree surgery was appropriate for one tree and another for another. We're very pleased with the overall result - the trees have retained their beautiful shapes but are lighter and look healthy and elegant.
