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!

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!
