SAYING ABOUT TREE KING

"We were given a quote quickly after I made the initial enquiry with Tree Kings. The guys turned up on time, pruned our trees well and removed all foliage. I’m very happy with the outcome and would recommend"

"I found John and his staff very efficient and pleasant to deal with. They arrived on time and completed the cutting of my tree's ,which were very tall and surrounded three quarters of my quite large section. Plus they chopped them all up and took them away. I also found that the cost was less than another contactor had quoted me. I definitely wound recommend Tree King."

"Seemed like a good company so bought some mulch. Best thing was the communication which was superb. Got back to my enquiry promptly and kept me in the loop with regards to delivery times. This they did on time with little fuss. If I am able to get more mulch I will certainly use Tree King again."

"We had previously used Tree King and found their service very satisfactory so again asked Luke for a quote which he promptly provided but advised that it could be six weeks before the job could be done. However a cancellation allowed the job to be fitted in yesterday. John's team turned up on time and quickly got underway. They again did a fantastic job completely to our satisfaction."

"We have used Tree King for trimming and maintaining our gardens large collection of small and large oak, olives, titokis and other trees for several years. They are always 100% wonderful at their work, delightful and skilled arborists, who not only always do a perfect job, but also spend lots of time checking we are happy and do a fantastic clean up afterwards. I can totally recommend Tree King, always a pleasure to deal with, and very efficient too."

"In today's climate of everyone wanting trees cut down, we were told of an eight-week turnaround, however, the team were able to fit us in to do most of the job. The stump grinding was left until after the long weekend. Andrew turned up today, to complete the job. All in all, a very competent team and a job very well done! Cheers Stephen"
