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.

Big job - Expertly completed!

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!

Properly explained process during visit for estimate. Exceptional tree cutter and first rate work carried out by him and his two team companions. Strong protective sheeting laid out in the house. Care was taken moving through the narrow hallway with large amounts of cuttings, and clearing up the garden. Excellent work.

A pleasant team of tree surgeons who arrived promptly to trim two trees and remove ivy. The work was carried out to a professional standard with safety harnesses etc. worn. Branches were taken away and the place left tidy. The agreed schedule and budget was kept.

Sean came round to quote a couple of times as we were being indecisive. He was the only quote we got that was comfortable with grinding out stumps and getting machine through our narrow, long flat. His quote was fair and he did the planning application for us, as we live in a conservation area. He was knowledgeable regarding the local council and impressive. On the day, his team arrived on time and were organised, professional and careful, led by Patrick. They were positive and seemed confident. We have a long, narrow hallway and they had to remove three trees from our garden including grinding out the stumps, and remove all waste through the front door. I was amazed how well they protected our newly refurbished flat (new wooden floors, kitchen and completely renovated) with ease. No damage done. All done in one day and payment terms reasonable. I would recommend this company to anyone. We have had a lot of work done in our home and this lot compare favourably!

We first secured Sean's help with hedges and a pear tree in the garden 8 years ago. He was then a one-man band. Since then he has returned nearly every year to tend the pear tree and a few other trees in our garden. He now has a thriving business and we are pleased his hard work and his love of trees has worked out so successfully. His advice is always reliable. We trust him and his team absolutely and have no hesitation is recommending him.

The Forbes Treecare team came and removed a selection of tricky plants from my house - ivy climbers and sharp spikey plants. Sean quoted quickly and efficiently for the task - and the guys came and dispatched the work super-efficinetly, cleanly, and were a pleasure to have working at the house. 100% recommended - a cracking job well done.

The team did a fantastic job on our front trees. They had checked with local council planning and reviewed and advised this in line with our thoughts on how to thin our trees. Really helpful advice on maintenance going forward, they were professional with expert knowledge on caring for trees. Couldn't fault them and they left our property clean of any debris. We are really happy with the work, we would use them again and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them for anyone looking for tree care work.
