Excellent customer service and delivery
Customer Service
Originally contacted ETS because another arborist recommended to me was hard to pin down in terms of getting a quote and likely start date for the work we needed doing to remove a grey willow and prune another large willow in the rear communal garden at our tenement. From the get go the admin support from Vikki was superb and it was this, along with my experience during the initial site visit to assess the work, that convinced me to use Edinburgh Tree Surgeons - despite them being almost twice the price of the sole trader I was originally going to employ. I was not disappointed. On the day Harry the main tree surgeon not only worked his professional magic on the trees but happily answered any concerns I had and helped clear the very congested communal corridor through to the rear garden to facilitate the clear up operation at the end of the work. A calm, professional and positive presence. The tidy up at the end was excellent too.

Prompt, efficient and friendly service.

The guys made a huge difference to my garden cutting back the neighbour's leylandii to the boundary and removing a couple of my trees. It was all done in a morning and everything was left shipshape. At my request they left the chipped branches in a neat pile on the driveway and these are being used as an excellent mulch around the garden. A pleasure to employ.

Fast, friendly, professional and very knowledgeable
Customer Service
Excellent job -- fast, efficient, friendly, professional and very knowledgeable! We have an evergreen tree in our small backyard that was previously looming over our patio and our neighbour's garden. We didn't want to remove it, just cut it back quite significantly. I contacted Edinburgh Tree Surgeons and heard back from them very quickly, I believe the same day. They knew exactly what kind of tree it was and provided me with options for how to move forward, either pruning or taking it out. They provided a quote and scheduled the tree trim right away -- I only had to wait a week or so. I was very impressed that they also provided an educational video so that I could learn about how tree pruning works and how to preserve the health of the tree. They clearly know exactly what they're doing and how to do it well! The team that came was quick and cleaned up all of the pruned material. Our tree is now a lovely rounded shape and fits into our backyard more naturally. I would definitely recommend working with them and the next time I need a tree trimmed, I know who to go to first.

efficient - helpful advice and then work carried out as planned
Customer Service
Edinburgh Tree Surgeons came promptly, following initial enquiry, and advised on the safety and desirability of pruning i) a large silver birch tree - seems safe enough and no need to prune, (assessment included climbing to 10-15 ft up the tree to check forks in the trunk) ii) a cypress - agreed to reduce top, and advised on how it would be likely to develop after, iii) a snake bark maple - agreed to reduce canopy The quote came promptly and was accepted and work was done efficiently and tidily within a week of enquiry. All cuttings were removed and the pavement was swept after. The invoice (as expected) was received and paid promptly.

Knowledgeable and reliable
Customer Service
The team were punctual, efficient, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. They removed an old tree, including stump grinding, trimmed and shaped others, and dealt with the council no TPO paperwork. They also planted two new trees. The garden was left neat and tidy, with all debris removed. The attention to detail was impressive, eg shaping a large acer almost twig by twig, and taking time to make sure the new trees were straight, mulched and in exactly the right place.

Tree prunning
Customer Service
This is the second time I have used Edinburgh Tree Surgeons. Both times they have done a brilliant job. This job was to re polard a Tulip tree . They arrived on time and the site was cleared very well. The cost was comparabe to other reputable tree surgoens and I would not hesitate in recommending them or to use them again.

Great work and fast
Customer Service
Edinburgh Tree Surgeons did a fantastic job removing several trees and bushes from my back garden and laying turf to replace them. The garden was very overgrown and Alan was very helpful with planning the work. Alan’s team completed the work within 4 hours and did a great job, I was very impressed how friendly and knowledgeable they were and the end result was just as I’d hoped. Big thanks to the whole team!

Highly professional, reliable team with excellent standard of work
Alan and his team removed a very tall, awkwardly placed self-seeded ash tree from our tenement back green which was growing extremely close to another property. Alan was incredibly helpful, patient and tolerant through the time it took us to get consent from all concerned. Communication was excellent throughout, the cost very fair and the whole team were highly professional, friendly and efficient. The site was left clear, with all felled material removed swiftly. Carrying out tree work in an enclosed Edinburgh tenement back green, with very limited access and parking available, presents additional challenges -but Alan and team took these on cheerfully and did a really great job.
