Felled one huge sycamore and halved the size of three others.

Verified Review

Absolutely fantastic job! Arrived on Monday with 3 solid days of felling and pruning. There must have been 5 tonnes of lumber on the floor when completed - all managed with care to protect our garden. Worked flat out for 3 days - very happy to recommend Martin to anyone needing a tree surgeon - a true professional.

Remove large sycamore and 3 other trees that had grown too large, shaping the remaining spruce.

Verified Review

Martin and his team were extremely professional in tackling this tricky job. The two gardens were surrounded by telephone wires. He used climbing ropes /safery gear and dismantled the trees methodically. All waste was chipped and tree stumps removed as instructed. The job took a little longer than anticipated but quote remained the same. After the job was completed they tidied up the area and you would never have known they were there. If you want a professional outfit then id highly recommend them.

Removal of conifer trees

Hired Martin to remove several conifer trees from the front garden. He told me exactly what he was going to do, and how long it would take. He gave me a written quote so I knew how much it would cost, and that's how much I paid. No hidden costs. When it came to clearing up he went above and beyond. He did a great job and I can't recommend him highly enough.
