Cut the top of a very high hedge and remove broken branch high up in a Silver Birch

Verified Review

Gavin and his team cut parts of a very tall leylandii hedge that I had been unable to reach and had become overgrown. They did an excellent professional job, cleared up all debris and now the whole hedge looks really good. A Silver Birch branch (at a fair height) damaged in high winds and left dangling was also removed with a tidy cut back the main trunk of the tree. Very satisfied with the work undertaken and was a pleasure to do business with.

Cutting back a big Protected Oak Tree

Verified Review

I Can't recommend GSH enough. Gavin took care of the planning applications with the council then came around with his team to cut back and shape a massive unruly Oak. They were Professional, efficient, and friendly. They cleared away all the waste from the tree. We are very happy with the results and will no doubt have them back in the future 10/10.
