Fantastic Company would use them again

We had Thom and Jake today to work on a super tall TPO black pine and 2 silver birch. They were absolutely wonderful human beings with immense skills in what they do. They completed the job in horrendous rain battling elements and gravity. In particular the job of trimming silver birch takes experience and judgement. They came down the trees soaked but all smiles, tidied up the garden to an immaculate standard. I would not hesitate recommending these guys anytime. More...

Very glad I found these guys - they are excellent. Greg and has team did a crown thin and lift for our willow. The job was done to a great standard, and his team were exceptionally helpful and communicative on the day. They did the job promptly and tidied up after themselves. Greg has been a great help giving advice on a number of occasions. Highly recommended. More...

Greg was very quick to respond to a request for a quote. His quote was very competitive. Communication was excellent. I had 5 large trees trimmed requiring 3 men first day, and 4 men 2nd day. I was really impressed with the young men's politeness and neatness. I thought that I'd have to clean up after them, but they cleaned up so well. At the end of each day Greg phoned to check everything was as I expected. That's pretty cool !!! I'd definitely recommend this company. More...

All i can say is excellent service from the start. I had to take down two large trees. After three quotes I went with Greg who was so much cheaper than the others. Work was completed the following week with two lovely chaps who worked so hard, Everything taken away and all mess cleared. Cant recommend this company enough and i wouldn't bother with quotes next time i would just go straight to this company .Jo More...

Greg and his team were excellent. Great response from my initial online enquiry, with prompt dates booked in the diary to come and quote and then do the work. The team were professional, friendly and competent, and I am delighted with the work they did. I will definitely contact Greg again next time I need tree work doing, and would definitely recommend.

Delighted with the work from Greg and his team. They are proper arborists – i.e. they know their trees and plants, they aren’t just guys with chainsaws. Right from the first visit (free of charge) to estimate the job, I learned a lot about the trees we have, which to prune, which to remove and why. We agreed the work and the price was very reasonable. On the day, they were on time and worked hard and got a lot done on a very cold day! They also went the extra mile – they returned another morning to finish grinding a stump that there hadn’t quite been time to finish. All in all: trustworthy service, high quality work, genuine expertise, faultless attitude – I highly recommend these guys. More...

Although we had to re-book the date, due to illness, Greg turned up promptly on Monday and took down our Cypress quickly, efficiently and with the minimum of mess. He did a very professional job and left our property spotless. We were very impressed, considering how little room he had to manoeuvre! Thanks again, Greg - highly recommended! More...

Greg and his team have done a great deal of work at our property since we arrived last June from the removal of large trees to pruning and reshaping existing trees. They also planted replacements for us in less than easy ground. This is no 'hack and run' operation they have extensive arboricultural knowledge and take care to advise the best way to deal with a wide variety of species and circumstances. We have no hesitation in recommending the Roots Team for any and every type of tree Surgery and tree Care. More...

Greg and his team came a removed a large Norway Maple today that had unfortunately died. I got two quotes for doing the job, and although the quote provided by The Roots Company was about £60 more than the other one, I was so impressed by the professionalism, knowledge and helpful advice I received from Greg, I gave the business to them. Having seen the end result, I know that I made the right decision. A large tree was removed by a team of 3 in just 7 hours, and the site was left clean and tidy. Thanks to everyone involved. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone look for a very professional company. More...

The Roots Company provided an exceptional level of service. They did everything they said they would, on time and to a very high standard. Greg took the time to understand the job and was therefore able to provide both very valuable advice and to complete the job on time and to budget. Other quotes had underestimated the work involved. Greg and his entire team of 7 were highly professional, very skilled and knowledgable and left everything spotless at the end of the works. I highly recommend them. More...

The Roots Company recently cut down an oak tree and poplar tree from our property. They did a brilliant job and cut up the trees into logs and stacked them tidily in the garden as requested. They were extremely efficient and friendly and we would happily employ them again and recommend them to others. More...

Greg and the team arrived promptly, cut down and dragged a 50 foot tree through my house then rode off into the autumn sunset leaving us brilliantly satisfied and with no more mess in the house than a few scuff marks. ..unavoidable considering the tiny space they had to work with.If you are in need of tree surgery we can wholeheartedly recommend The Roots Company and have already passed their number on to two other people in need of some tree TLC.Many thanksBeverley and Stewart More...

These guys removed 6 huge trees from my elderly Nan's back garden in knowle recently (one of which was close to falling due to the high winds).
VERY nice friendly guys, left the garden very clean afterwards (probably cleaner than when they arrived!). They even trimmed her Pear tree.!
Highly recommended!

We had an out of control horse chestnut tree at the end of the garden. The limbs spread over three gardens and an adjoining field. Greg organised access to the field with the owner, talked us carefully through the work, and then executed the work exactly as discussed. Greg was passionate about how the work was done and made sure no problems arose. Thank you to Greg and his amazing team for a perfect job. I would highly recommend this company to anyone without a second thought. More...

Having competitively quoted for the large Ash tree in our garden shared with some of our neighbors, Greg and his team from The Root Company set to work on the three-day job to reduce the load on two main limbs on this landmark tree in Shaftesbury, Dorset and to trim some hedge line and remove an old tree trunk.

Working in unison with the Planning consent for this Ash tree with a preservation order on, and the Surveyors report, they did as perfect job to satisfy all requirements, and leave the tree looking healthy and hopefully giving it a good chance of being around for many years to come. Not only have they done a professional job up and around the tree, but their coordination, communication and general friendliness made the job a pleasure to see.

I am extremely happy with their services and will certainly be using them again in the future, as well as recommending them to anyone who needs their services. A Job well done guys and a perfect example of a local trusted small business. Wayne Bale.

Greg discovered a huge cavity in the poplar he was asked to thin out for us. Eventually, the tree had to be reduced by half; but before doing this, Greg had gone to great lengths researching the options and consulting with experts and the council (all of whom he knew well). We were absolutely reassured that we had made the right decision. He then shaped what could be saved of the tree in such a balanced way that hardly anything could be noticed when the leaf returned this summer. We would not employ anybody else for our trees.

Q&A

I have a passion for woody plants, a love of the outdoors and a love for climbing trees. The bigger the better. Through my time on the Tree Team at Westonbirt Arboretum, I learned to appreciate the natural, untampered with form of tree species from all over the world. Understanding the natural form of a tree is imperative if you're going to work with each tree's individual charateristics when pruning. Bottom line, the staff of The Roots Company love working wth trees.

A wish to do things my own way and a long conversation one night with an old friend who had the vision and the acumen to push things forwards. He then became my business partner and The Roots Company was born.

Because we will care for your trees. We are professional, skilled, knowledgable, experienced and friendly. We will be prompt, upfront and efficient in all aspects of the work, from the initial quote to clearing up the last twig. It is essential to us that you are happy with our work.
