An olive tree, a couple of feet tall when planted, had grown over three storeys high and was in need of a haircut and pruning. We saw a Forbes Treecare team working nearby and checked the excellent Which? Trusted Trader for information and reviews about the company. A reasonable quote was given after an inspection of the tree and the company undertook to obtain council permission for the work. On the day, two employees turned up at the time stipulated, explained what they were going to do and made sure we were happy. The work was carried out efficiently and neatly. The level of knowledge from the team leader was impressive. We received excellent service from Forbes Treecare and would heartily recommend the company.

We needed to have two sycamore trees felled as these were restricting the light to neighbouring gardens and in danger of undermining garden walls. A three man team undertook the work and completed the job in 2 to 3 hours. The trees were fully shredded on site and the area surrounding the work fully cleared of debris. The stumps were treated to prevent regrowth. The team were extremely competent and polite and the cost of the service lower than we expected having tried to estimate the cost using online sources. I thoroughly recommend Forbes Treecare.

I called Forbes Treecare , among others to get a quote for removal of a Sycamore tree causing cracks to front of our house. Sean attended and provided a written quote swiftly. Works were arranged for a couple of weeks later, at my convenience and Sean and his team arrived promptly and carried out the tree removal efficiently and properly. All tree debris was removed and the area was left clean and tidy. A hassle free transaction, I would have no hesitation in recommending Forbes Treecare to anyone and would use them again for any further works needed without hesitation.

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.
