  • Small tree removal and pruning job

    10Verified Review

    We were so impressed with Sean and his team, great communications arranging the work, professional, courteous team who removed our small apple tree from our garden and pruned back another tree, removed everything through our basement windows which I know is a bit of a pain and did a great job tidying up after themselves as well. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very patient with our lunatic puppy jumping all over the place as well! Many thanks Sean and team, will absolutely recommend and save your number for the future.
