Although I'd had a cheaper quote elsewhere I had no hesitation in using Alan and his team, his quote was still competitive. His knowledge of tree and plant types was clear and he provided helpful guidance in what I was trying to achieve. The job of removing several trees was completed professionally and all stumps ground away. Other overgrown shrubs were either removed or reduced as agreed. My garden was left clear and tidy afterwards. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to anyone else who needs garden or tree work done.

Alan and the guys were great. They made a really nice job of pruning back our overgrown shrubbery and tidying up the garden. They had a good eye and were happy to make suggestions, which were well received. They also made a nice job of trimming back a couple of trees whilst maintaining a nice shape. All done with the minimum of fuss and mess - I would definitely use these guys again.

Phoned and agreed a date and time for the work. The team arrived promptly and, after some discussion about how drastically to prune one of the trees they worked well and swiftly. The work was completed in the estimated time and debris, including leaves was cleared and removed. They were very cheerful and friendly and we are (again) pleased with the results. We would certainly recommend them.

We have 2 lovely large trees in our garden which were encroaching on the house and required pruning and reducing in size whilst at the same time retaining a natural shape. At both the quotation and work stages, Alan and his team were extremely attentive to our requirements and gave very sound advice about the available options. Whilst naturally apprehensive at first, we should not have worried as Edinburgh Tree Surgeons were extremely professional, worked together as a team during the significant pruning activity and delivered an outcome that far exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend their services.

This is the second time I have used this team, and over the two jobs I've had a tree cut down, other trees cut back, ivy removed and shrubs pruned. The guys are professional, friendly, easy to deal with, do an excellent job, for a fair price and clean up after themselves - what more could you want?!

Alan and his team were professional and polite and carried out the work involved really quickly. They also tidied up after themselves really well. Our garden has been transformed after having the trees pruned, and the out of control ivy now looks much better! They were also able to advise on care of the ivy and what needed to be done going forward. I was very impressed and will definitely use them again.

Absolutely over the moon with how easy Alan made the whole process of getting a tree felled. I had encountered many issues due to tree being between phone cables with many companies not willing to undertake work. So appreciative that this company undertook this work considering how tricky this was. Very reasonable cost as well. Would Highly recommend Alan and his team

They worked incredibly hard for me and now it is in shape for me to enjoy keeping it controlled and got lots of tips from them what to plant and how to progress. Thanks

Edinburgh Gardeners/Edinburgh Tree Surgeons/Alan Dewar. The job: reduce height of two pine trees, fell a Spruce tree. Alan Dewar visited and we agreed what would be done, when, and the price. He (with a helper) came and did the job efficiently, cleared all debris, and were helpful in brining logs into house. Came a day earlier than planned, not quite so convenient for me, but sensible in view of very bad weather forecast.

Garden Maintenance Service. Alan responded to my enquiry promptly and provided some helpful advice and a reasonable quote. The work was carried out within a week of my initial email which was fantastic. I found them to be highly knowledgeable, professional, friendly and accommodating. I needed a hedge severely cut back. As well as this they also pruned back 2 other shrubs which had been affected. I am absolutely delighted with the quality of work carried out and all the debris was removed. I hope to use the company again and would not hesitate to recommend them.

Had a large sycamore tree in the back garden that had become overgrown and neglected for many years, this was becoming a potential risk to the building. Alan turned up for a quote on time and gave great advice on what his team could accomplish safely and with minimum impact to the trees health. On the day of the job, Alan and his team turned up promptly and set up their safety equipment. The tree was beautifully trimmed back to a healthy shape and condition, with nothing large or structural removed from the tree. All this was achieved with some impressive working at height skill and harness work. All trimmings were collected and removed from location. One really professional touch was the use of a camera and tripod to capture before, during and after pictures of the tree. Very happy with all aspects of the job and will be passing on their business card to friends and family.

As a keen gardener, I use Alan for bigger jobs that I cannot manage myself, he has been helping me for over eight years and I couldn't be happier. He has done many various jobs for me and I would without a shadow of a doubt recommend him to anyone because he is just so brilliant, really reliable and trustworthy. Him and his team of workers are all extremely professional and efficient, and they are such good value for money for the high standard of quality provided. What impresses me is how the calibre of people all have knowledgable backgrounds in horticulture, so they are certainly the best people for the job. Alan is absolutely terrific, I really can't emphasise how lucky I am to have him - he is so flexible, communicative and prompt to help sort out any issues I may have. Edinburgh Gardeners are definitely traders you can trust.
