  • Tree removals

    10Verified Review

    Damian was the 1st to respond to my initial enquiry and came back with the best quote. Work completed in less than an hour and also trimmed off a bush which wasn't included in the original quote. Cannot fault anything and would highly recommend

  • Cut and dispose of chestnut tree

    0Verified Review

    Damian came out gave us a quote which was on par with another company, having read reviews we decided to go with his co. The Outside Life. However, having paid Damian the full which I was reluctant to do, Damian has not removed the trunk and left me with a 20ft tree trunk stuck in the garden and stated the job was a bigger job than he thought. Unfortunately I have received no correspondence from Damian with a view to reimbursing some of the money in order to have the trunk cut down by another company. Will now be pursuing small claims.

  • Conifer trees/shrubs re-shaped

    10Verified Review

    Very impressed with the workmanship, levels of tidiness and quick responses via email . We found Damien to be reasonably priced and he did a professional job with our conifer trees and re-shaped a border of shrubs. Very pleased and will definitely use again .

  • Had a 40 foot tree, needing removal

    10Verified Review

    I had a 40 tree which I needed to have cut down, during the recent high winds I was sure this tree would come down at some point. I come on check a trade and searched for help. I had 4 people message me and all 4 come around and gave a quote. Damian come round, had a look and gave me the quote the same day and was able to start work the following week. His communication was great, he was by far the best price and was happy to cut the trunk into logs for me. Brilliant service, polite, friendly, tidy, 100% recommend and would use again

  • Tree removal

    10Verified Review

    Highly recommend! Damian was very helpful talking through the options we had with a neglected tree that was destroyed by ivy. We chose to have it removed and Damian and his team were efficient, courteous when navigating our shared garden access path, tidied up perfectly, and it was a great value. We are very pleased with the work carried out and would use them again in the future.
