I have something in the region of 70 leylandii trees forming a huge, thick hedge round my house - they've been there since the early 80s, cut out so much light and space. Ben and his team did a wonderful job of removing the whole lot of them, disposed of everything, and left the site very clean and tidy. The neighours are absolutely delighted, and so am I. A lot of work at a very reasonable price.

R. Smith

Ben and team did a brilliant job cutting down a large eucalyptus tree for us. Very professional, thorough and tidy, highly recommend.

R Stewart

Ben and his team raised the canopy on two large Oak trees. I am very happy with the result. I would use them again without hesitation and would certainly recommend them.
