My wife and I had two trees which were getting too big for their boots and were also a bit tangled. To make things worse they were between a garden fence and a fishpond which gave difficult access. After having visits from four companies we chose Sean's Forbes Treecare. Sean told us they were quite busy and couldn't do the job straight away. (I like to deal with companies who 'have a lot on'). As the trees had taken 15 years to grow to their size I considered a little longer wouldn't matter. Sean sent two men who made easy work of it. They covered the large-ish pond with a tarp to stop sawdust, etc, getting to our many fish. They were obviously top professionals. They were most considerate and helpful throughout and did a pretty thorough clean-up job. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.

So we got Sean from Forbes Tree Care on recommendation from a friend. On first meeting, he was very knowledgeable and amenable. We explained what we wanted doing. He said he would get back to us with a quote in a couple of days which he duly did with a date to start work. About a week later I got a text saying they had a cancellation could they start tomorrow. Which was fine with me. On the agreed date his workers turned up on time and were very pleasant and knowledgeable. After they started I got a further text from Sean saying they could complete the whole job in one day brilliant. I got home from work and everything was done and they had left the job site spotless. I have already recommended them to both my neighbours. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone

We had work done on our 60/70ft lime tree, reduction in branches and some height taken off. The team were professional and very tidy. The garden was tidier than when they arrived! They were friendly and went through the procedure on the day to make sure that they were doing the right thing. They put protective sheets down in the house and took down pictures off the wall just incase. This is the best price I have ever been quoted for tree work and have paid much more elsewhere. I would highly recommend them, and I will definitely be using them again.

Forbes were recommended to us. Do not use cheap alternatives. Organised efficient service - taking down two trees, reducing size of 3 others, all roots removed. Could not be more pleased with the work. Considering it is December you would not know that several workmen/women had been in our garden. Real care taken, all rubbish removed. Cleared everything away. Would recommend and definitely use again. Very pleased we found this company.

Forbes worked on a large lime tree I had in my backgarden stealing all my sunlight. I contacted Sean back in summer and we agreed to address it once winter hit. My house has been recently refurbished and the team did an excellent job of minimising mess which is no easy task when you are getting rid of a 15 meter tree through the front door. Friendly, efficient and professional I just cant fault them! Thanks team!

I can't recommend Sean and Forbes Treecare enough. They came highly recommended by my neighbours and they didn't disappoint. They were full of good advice, gave a fair quote and super organised. I couldn't have asked for a nicer team who came to attend our tree. They were quick and efficient, and there was no mess left behind. Very impressed overall. I will certainly be using them again.

Forbes Tree Care felled a dead tree, tidied up an overgrown elder and took height off some overgrown shrubs. The team arrived on time and confirmed the details of the job. They explained what they would do in detail. They introduced themselves to the neighbours to make people feel comfortable with them on the borders. Whilst they were with me, they also helped dig up an old stump and move some garden furniture. After the job, they cleaned up so you couldn’t tell they’d been. The stand out part of their service was the friendliness of the team. I really enjoyed having them in the garden for a few hours. I can’t wait for the trees to get overgrown again so that they can come back over! Would definitely recommend.

We are a block of flats in Barnet, and needed 10 large trees on our premises (oaks, horse chestnuts etc.) professionally lopped. Difficulties included many trees being on a main road and having a bus stop / busy pavement under some of the trees. Sean's initial visit was a big seller - intelligent, knowledgeable, plenty of advice given - but best of all, an obvious confidence that the job could be done. The Quote was complete, well laid out & reasonable (next to lowest of 4 suppliers we selected). The work was scheduled for, and completed in, a two day window. Sean and his 7 companions were here by 8.15 each morning for a prompt start. And they completed the job on time despite some appalling conditions - sporadic heavy rain and 30-40 mph winds - not good when you're at the top of a tree higher than a three story house. The interface with the general public on the pavement / at the bus stop was handled well, with safety always in mind. The clean away after the job was very thorough. We were very happy with the work done & would happily recommend Forbes Treecare to others - indeed, we have just done so!
