I am extremely pleased with the work done and wouldn’t hesitate to seek your firm to carry out any further work in the future if required”

Mr Mortensen

The guys worked tremendously hard yesterday in lousy weather to complete the tree work, not leaving the site until 7.30pm and with the Foreman Will quite exceptional in terms of leadership, commitment and effort.  We are pleased with the outcome and look forward to planting more suitable shrubs and trees in lieu of the conifers that were previously situated behind the property.

Mr Milton

Dear Bruce, Now that the work is completed may I say how pleased my in-laws are with the result which has certainly met expectations and will definately be a great asset to them. The work was carried out in a thoroughly professional and friendly manner and I would ask that you pass on our thanks to all those involved.
With kind regards

Thank you so much for the truly excellent job you did for us. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark and his team (and the dog) it was a pleasure to have them on site.
Please come and follow up thereby insuring a truly fantastic garden.

G & C Edwards

Dear Mr. Smith
Thankyou for a grand job and sending such pleasant workmen.
Yours Truly,

J Charman Sindle

Dear Mr Smith,
Just to mention that, overall, we are very pleased with the end result and feel that your team did an excellent job inb particulartly tring conditions following the “wet” start on Monday. Special mention should be made of Mike who did a first class job on the “paving” front, not only on the patio but on the new path from front to back., Ben, for his standard of “carpentry” on the new gate and erection of the new fence and finally Joe who soldiered on with the “planting” of the shrubs (over 60) on the second day in appauling weather. We look forward now to seeing the various shrubs “mature” in the coming years with a variety of colour to admire. We shall probably invite Kieron back later on in the year to do some pruning.
Once again many thanks for a job well done by your team.
Yours Sincerely,

M & S Copleston

Dear Bruce,
Bill says he will do the photos when the beds are planted up and again next year when hopefully the garden will be in full bloom. We most certainly will recommend your services as we are very pleased, most particularly in the way you have dealt with any problems.
So thanks once again,

B & J Abbott

Dear Bruce,
A few words of appreciation. Thankyou for estimating the work as requested…..Am delighted!
Your woodsmen worked so efficiently and speedily yesterday, heeding every hazard (plant pots and corners), cleared up so well and asking my preference where necessary. During my absence in the afternoon ‘stump grinder’ worked wonders.
So much lighter and more spacious, shall ask your assistance when needed and certainly recommend.
Thanks to you all, including lovely Mitzi.
Very sincerely,

S. Mitchell

Dear Sir,
I am enclosing a cheque valued £…. in settlement of your invoice.
Thankyou for your attention to this matter and the exemplary way in which it was carried out.
Yours faithfully,


Dear Bruce,
Enclosed is the cheque for £…. in final settlement for the tree work performed as per your quotation of 20th October.
Although having our trees pruned, especially the beech, has been traumatic it has been considerably eased by having the work so well performed by you and your team.
We have been extremely impressed by all aspects of the service you provide from organization, attitude and of course skill levels.
We shall certainly be happy to recommend you and your excellent team.
Best wishes, yours sincerely,

Dr B & S Lonergan

Dear Bruce,
A very belated thanks to your team, Will, Kit, Luke and the other lad who’s name escapes me, who did a truly professional job at 8 Brook Lane. They worked like trojans and did such a proffesional job – nothing was too much trouble for them. My neighbours and I were very impressed with the high level of care.
You must rightly be very proud of the first class service you give.
Best wishes,

J Ashmore
