  • Hedge trimming and removal of old trees

    10Verified Review

    J L Tree Care is our go to company for hedge and tree maintenance. They provide professional advice, are polite, arrive on time, work efficiently and clean up afterwards. They did a wonderful job removing an old overgrown hedge that needed to be replaced. The equipment they brought to do the work was well looked after and in pristine condition. Recommended.

    10Verified Review

    We have used Josh and his team on a number of occasions and wouldn’t use anyone else. The service is always excellent and it is a pleasure to deal with Josh. He is knowledgeable, communicative and has never let us down. Would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending their services.

  • Crown lift and deadwood an oak tree

    10Verified Review

    Great work from Josh and his team. They were on site on time, worked quickly and tidied everything up afterwards. Can't fault the quality of the service, they even removed a few low branches on another tree completely free of charge. I would definitely use J L Tree Care again.

    The guys did an amazing job of taking down a difficult dead birth tree. They were extra considerate to limit any damage to the garden. The pruning of the Cherry was superb. They were immaculate in their tidiness and cleaning up. Courteous and polite and updated me regulalry. I would highly recommend.

  • Annual pruning of fruit tree, reducing height and reshaping

    10Verified Review

    We have used the services of JL Treecare twice now - and will continue to do so. Been really impressed with the prompt, friendly and professional service, from initial contact/quote, to the work undertaken and the professional opinion/specialist advice when sought. JL Treecare are sound pair of hands, very fairly priced and we cannot fault the workmanship. They are reliable, turn up when they say they will and don’t leave a mess. Our fruit tree is only an annual job but peace of mind to have a reliable trade to call when we need them.

J.L Tree Care is a small company operating for over 7 years with a fine reputation and many returning customers!
Josh Laurence trained at Sparsholt College, he and his team use their wide range of arboriculture skills and experience to carry out each job professionally, no matter how large or small. ‘They treat your garden as if it were their own, leaving everything neat and tidy, and they are a pleasure to have around being honest, friendly and reliable.’ 

Josh carries out a free initial visit to assess your trees and hedges and to give you a clearly explained quotation. Having obtained a wealth of experience and knowledge of local trees, he will give you expert advice and even apply for TPO permissions for you from your local Council, saving you the stress and confusion of those forms!

All work is carried out safely using specialist equipment that is well maintained and fully insured and, of course, only qualified climbers and operatives use wood chippers and chainsaws! Logs and timber can be left on site for your own use or green waste can be removed and disposed of legally with a waste carrier's license.
