Tree maintenance on a cherry and plum tree in West London. This is the 3rd/4th time Forbes Tree care have visited and as usual they've done an excellent job. Friendly, efficient and very carefully removed the tree waste through the house (not an easy job). Thanks to Ishea, Patrick and Sean. See you next time Andrew

2 chaps arrived on time bit early actually, they went over the quote with us to make sure it what we wanted, every thing was correct. They sorted out how to get equipment into garden as it was very awkward, kept us updated all the time then got on with cutting the trees. They were polite an careful when entering our property even took boots off when came through. When they finished they checked it was to our satisfaction, which it was, very happy with the job. Then they cleaned everything up. Very pleased

I have used them 2 or 3 times and am always more than happy with their work. They previously removed a dead tree as well as sourcing and planting a well-grown replacement, all with access only through the house. Very efficient, friendly and knowledgeable.

Excellent experience. I got a quote quickly, it was very competitive. A date was arranged for the two day job. The men turned up on time and completed the job in the timescale that was quoted. Everything was cleaned up afterwards. The team were professional and very helpful. I was delighted with the outcome and would highly recommend.

We had to cut down and remove a tall overgrown tree with deep roots, and branches hanging over the next door’s garden. Also, large branches of our plum tree needed cutting back to bring light and sunlight back into our garden. When visiting, Sean gave us good advice and quoted quickly for the task. On the day, his team arrived on time, courteous, very friendly and organised. They worked safely, efficiently to agreed budget. They left our property clean – including our neighbour’s. We are very happy with Forbes Tree's work and will use Sean and his team again. Highly recommended!

I recently had to have my large plum treee cut back as it was over hanging the garden fence and the previous next door neighbour, who had no issue with the tree and actually enjoyed it, sold up and it was bought by someone who was less of a fan. This mature tree was one of the reasons bought the property 10 years ago, so a big reduction was a sad day for me... But forbes tree care made it as painless as possible. They were warm friendly and sympathetique. They provided excellent advice and took great care of the tree and of my home in removing the debris. Once they had finished the tree looked less destroyed than I had imagined and I'm sure after a couple of years it's new lopsidedness will become a feature. They worked quickly and efficiently, even in the rain and came in on budget. This is not the first time I have used forbes tree care and always go to them first whenever I have any tree surgery needs. Whilst I value the tree I also value the relationship with my neighbour, however misguided their views on trees might be. I was pleased to be able to reach out to a company that I trusted who could safe guard my tree.

Sean, Alex and their team of tree surgeons were fantastic! Very experienced, knowledgeable, professional, polite, helpful and took extreme care during the pollarding of very large trees located in a difficult position on my property. Sean organised prior access to the rear property that adjoined mine and during the tree cutting and felling process, the team worked on both sides to ensure that work was carried out to a very high standard with complete health and safety protocols in place. They also did a great job in trimming large branches of a two large evergreen trees along with clearing overgrown ground cover in my garden. At the end of the works, the garden was left free of tree debris and in a tidy state. They were punctual and kept to the scheduled dates as per our agreement and were very competitively priced when compared to other companies. Overall, Forbes Tree Care were an excellent choice and I’m very happy with their service. I will unhesitatingly use them again for any tree works and recommend them very highly. Thank you Sean & Alex for a great job!

Tree Pruning

Expert job of pruning and shaping trees in a dense urban environment, shaping them well and carrying out the work without damage to fences, glass house or other property. The team arrived promptly and were well organised. They provided protections and left everything neat and tidy. Their arboriculturalists are experts on the trees they prune and freely offered advice about maintenance. All of them were very friendly and appeared to enjoy their work. They carried out the work and invoiced exactly in accordance with the quotation they gave. I shall not hesitate to ask them to return and prune when the trees need it again in about 4 years time.

I have used Forbes on a couple of occasions now and have found them to be polite, friendly, very knowledgeable and they always leave things nice and tidy. The first time I used Forbes was to prune a huge plum tree and they were really great. There was an issue with my garage door and they helped me resolve that before they left which I much appreciated. This time they removed the above tree for me and were very helpful about the type of tree I could replace it with and exactly where I should plant it. Overall I have found all of the people that have come to my house to be really great and I would definitely always use them in the future for any tree work.

Have used the services of Forbes for several years to carry out annual tree and bush pruning. Also this year to dig out unwanted plants. Their teams are courteous, efficient and responsive to working jointly throughout the work. They are also particular in clearing away the cut foliage at the end of the job. Have no hesitation in recommending Forbes for this type of garden work.
