"Paul was great. Super friendly and helpful when he came to quote for my tree removal. Cheapest quote I received too. When it came to removing my tree and stump, they arrived on time and removed my huge tree quicker than I thought possible. So happy with the result - so much more space in my backyard and light through my windows! Thank you Stumps & Trees. Definitely recommend."

Nothing in our garden or the neighbours was damaged and everything was cleaned up as they went. Added bonus... we really enjoyed watching them tackle the tree... amazing expertise! 100% recommend!"
