For several years Nelson Tree Specialists Ltd have maintained native and exotic trees and shrubs in our mature two acre garden. They know our garden and we trust Richard to advise what needs to be removed, shaped and tidied so it continues to evolve and grow as a whole: they are not just “chop down tree merchants” they provide a service. The team are knowledgeable, highly skilled, operate with great care and clean up their mess; they are courteous, accommodating and are all round good blokes.

Your men have completed a well performed job that I would class as difficult, they were very professional, safety first, no damage to anything. I am so pleased with it, overall a first class result. Thank you so much.

We were most impressed with the enthusiasm and efficiency of Dan and Josh from Nelson Tree Specialists. They arrived on time, were very knowledgeable and did a great job. They left our trees and shrubs trimmed and tidy and we will definitely use their services again next year.
