  • Stump grinding a few different stumps sizes

    10Verified Review

    David was communicative. He and his team were mindful and considerate of the surrounding area and neighbour's garden and removed everything as agreed. Where they couldn't grind it out, they managed to cut it out by hand which I was happy with. They left the place nice and tidy too. Very pleased. Would recommended.

  • Conifer width reduction and appearance improvement

    10Verified Review

    David and his well equipped team arrived bang on time and did a superb job in side trimming and redefining a group of conifers which had become unsightly. D.R.Tree Services is a professional firm offering good value and which I am happy to recommend.

  • Large Tree Removal

    10Verified Review

    Highly recommend D.R. Tree Services. More than happy with their work. They removed 4 trees, one of them being a large Conifer that was in a confined space. All trees were removed carefully and they also did a great tidy up. Good communication, punctual, reliable, attentive, courteous and friendly (the last three also being commented on by our neighbours). Thank you!

  • Reducing large tree

    10Verified Review

    David and Stuart did a fantastic job in reducing my large ash tree in my back garden. They took great care, working in a limited space, having to remove debris through both my and my neighbours gardens, and leaving the whole site completely tidy. Thoroughly professional , courteous and friendly throughout. Highly recommended.
