About

Trees benefit from regular care to ensure they remain healthy and safe. Neglected trees can be dangerous. Trees with dead, diseased, over-extended or defective branches often break and fall. Damaged trees or trees with dense crowns or shallow roots can blow over in high winds and cause serious damage. Trees often become too big and need to be reduced. They grow limbs that hang down over roads and driveways.

Our polite and friendly staff are trained to NPTC standard and are fully insured. We use modern and efficient low-emission chainsaws and environmentally friendly biodegradable chainsaw oil. All waste is recycled, branches are chipped and the woodchip is then distributed to allotments, schools and wildlife gardening centres around the city. Logs get split and dried for firewood - nothing is wasted. Sites are always left clean and tidy. Providing first class service and starting long-term working relationships are our main objectives.

If you need a tree surgeon give us a call. We’re ever so friendly.

This was the second time that I had used Green Planet for work. As before, the result was as I had expected. All requirements were met and everything was left clean and tidy. I am looking forward to more work in the Autumn. I can recommend this Company for work at any time. Their fees are very reasonable and true to the estimate.

Responsible Tree Care

I chose Green planet because of their positive approach to tree management. I required a crown reduction on our beautiful mature copper beech, and (sadly) our old rowan tree needed to be brought down to a safe height. Rich's cost assessment for this work was reasonable. It was carried out by two highly professional tree surgeons, with skill and consideration for the trees they worked on. I would highly recommend.

Emergency assessment of storm damage to protected tree
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Rich and his team have looked after the trees on the communal areas of our small estate of residences for several years. Many of our trees are magnificent old cedars, and all the trees have protection orders on them, so work must be done with great care. Following the recent storms, one of the cedars was damaged by the high winds, with several branches torn and blown down and one left hanging in the tree, just above a car parking area. Because of the health and safety risk, this caused, it was urgent for us to have an assessment of the safety of the hanging branch and have it removed. This week, and many times in the past following storm damage, Rich has gone out of his way to respond quickly, has seen to the tree damage, cleared up afterwards, and removed the health and safety risk to our residents. We cannot recommend Green Planet highly enough. Their knowledge and love of trees is astounding, and they have skillfully helped us maintain the shape and beauty of our trees. They now know our trees well and offer valuable guidance about work needed in the short and longer term, so we can plan and budget. Their work is undertaken on time and to budget, and their communication always friendly and efficient. It is a genuine pleasure to work with such professionals and to know we can completely trust their work.

Large Silver Birch significantly reduced in size, but shape maintained wonderfully
Customer Service
Quality
Value
The Silver Birch had grown in an "unruly" way, partially due to a poor crown reduction some years earlier, and it had become very large. We wanted the tree size noticeably reduced but were keen for it not to "look odd" after. Richard's advice was clear about what he considered could be done, and provided a written quotation very promptly. He called at the house again around the intended time with Paul, an Arborist on the team to review the tree and plan the work. They expressed concern that the sap was running very strongly and might stress the tree. It was agreed to delay the work from early March until August to protect the tree. The work started in August as planned and was undertaken with great skill. The volume of the tree was reduced without detriment to the shape, which was not only maintained but enhanced with Guy in the tree and Paul directing the cutting from the ground and clearing the debris. It was a big job, the work was completed in about 6 hours from start and the site left spotless. The whole team have a great understanding of and compassion for the trees, clearly enjoy their work, are concerned for the long term welfare and management of the trees and are able to communicate well with the customer. I have no hesitation in recommending Richard Price and the team for such work. It was completed on time, to cost and plan. Very professional outfit.

Ash Tree Removal

Richard and his team removed an extremely large Ash tree from our back garden, which had unfortunately become much too large and was crossing our borders, causing potential issues with neighbours. The work was completed on time and at the quoted price. Richard and his team were very polite and friendly, punctual, pleasant to have around with no bad language, loud radios and the like. Everything was left tidy, our fence and shed were not damaged and we were pleased with the job.

I have used this company once or twice a year since 2016, during which time they have carried general garden maintenance and tree work. A budget and time schedule was agreed. On this occasion the price was reduced on completion as it was finished in less time they programmed. They have always completed the works as agreed in a efficient and helpful manner.

Really couldn't have asked for more. We're so happy with the work we're booking them in to come regularly.

Really excellent job. The trees have been left with a lovely shape, and have been pruned back as we needed. One tree was over gravel which is a real pain to clear debris from but the team carefully laid out sheets to collect the debris to avoid leaves and branches falling onto the gravel. And they went above and beyond the job and cleared up fallen leaves and branches that I'd not been well enough to clear and were going to mulch into the gravel. I was really touched by this. Really couldn't have asked for more. We're so happy with the work we're booking them in to come regularly.

Outstanding cat rescue
When the fire service and RSPCA couldn’t help, in desperation I called Rich hoping he could help rescue my 6 month old kitten stuck for 7 hours 49ft up a tree in high winds. He said Paul could help if he was free. Pail called me within 10 minutes and arrived in 30 minutes. Less than 5 minutes later Bruce was safely back on firm ground with a new best friend in Paul. And outstanding service done completely as a goodwill gesture.

Removed two trees and trimmed a third, all in pretty foul weather in the aftermath of Storm Dennis. Despite that no mess! Happily very straightforward to deal with as a company as well.
