What Our Clients Say

Most reasonable quote

Debra - Elwood

"Paul and his team from Stumps and Trees recently did an outstanding job of pruning ten trees at my townhouse complex. Paul was extremely prompt in organising a most reasonable quote and his team of three arrived on time the next day. They demonstrated great communication skills in their liaison with both myself and other unit owners to satisfy our individual requirements. They worked quickly, efficiently and safely at all times and the property was left spotless upon completion of the job. Overall, the quality of the service provided is excellent and I cannot recommend this company more highly."

Professionalism, friendliness and care

Irene – Endevour Hills

"I am always amazed by Paul and his entire crew with their professionalism, friendliness and care. I have now required their services 3 times. Recently I had some storm damage from a large gum tree. One large limb was just hanging on and a danger to my neighbour. The guys removed the limb promptly, safely and with care. They also ensured all other trees were safe and then cleaned up. I would highly recommend Stumps and Trees for any works, big or small."

Extremely professional and polite

Kevin - Narre Warren North Primary School

"Stumps and Trees dealt with a challenging school site and cleaned up after they had finished. Will use them again for future works at the school. Highly recommended."

Amazing job

Wilma - Rowville

"Paul and his team did an amazing job for my heritage tree in the backyard. The team is really professional and efficient. That’s my second time using their service. The best part is, after they cut all the branches, they cleared everything, nothing left on the ground. Highly recommended!"

Never had a problem

Michael - Broom Real Estate

"These guys are true professionals. Turn up on time, do the job as agreed and leave without a spec of dust left behind. I have used them many times and never had a problem. Highly recommend."
