A commonly asked question is…

“How can I find a trusted Tree Surgeon?”

If you have a tree that requires attention and wish to engage a tree surgeon, we would advise asking friends and family to see if anyone has had any work carried out  recently and enquire if the work was satisfactory. 

Much of our work is from repeat clients and through customer recommendation.

However, other points to note are: 

  • A large advert does not mean a better service.
  • Request and compare local companies for relative quotes.
  • Ensure your tree surgeon has full Public Liability Insurance.
  • Ask to see previous work. A good tree surgeon will be happy to provide details.

Remember the contractor will only be on your property for a short time; you will need to check your trees every day.
