Tree Surgeon Recommended

I have used David for a tree removal job.

I got 3 quotes - he was competitively priced, took away all the wood and tidied up

I highly recommend him.

His number 07931 921691

Simon


One Not Recommended

I used someone else for another job, got his number from a card put through the door (family business, friendly etc)

He said that the chainsaw would be damaged and need replacing (40) and that it would be quite a job to kill the roots - he would have to put chainsaw in deep into the trunk (in fact it was a few inches).

I rashly agreed to his price. The job actually took 20 minutes - which means that his hourly rate is closer to that of a brain surgeon.

He didn't clear up at all - this was agreed, but I had got the impression the job would be a bit more involved.

The chainsaw clearly wasn't damaged as after he had a go at another tree and the cuts were clean.

Stupidly, I didn't get a receipt. Have asked for one, but no sign of it yet.

David got back to me with a quote after job was done and it was half the price!

My bad. Lesson learned.
