Contact us about our tree surgery services

Hello, and thank you for coming to our contact page.

Please be aware that there are longer than usual delays in responding to enquiries at the moment.

To arrange a free, no obligation quote by email, please complete the contact form below. I can help you get council permission if you need it. We are based in Hackney, and the majority of our work is within five miles. During busy periods, I may not be able to quote for work that is more than about five miles away. This is especially true of south and west London, where we don’t tend to get many enquiries.

You should get an automated reply by email within one hour acknowledging receipt of your completed contact form. If you don’t, and it’s not in your spam folder, then I haven’t received your completed form, so please try again. I aim to respond personally to all new enquiries within one week, but during busy periods it may take longer. This is because we have a rolling programme of work, and I work on every job from start to finish as well as handling all the business administration myself. So if you choose us, it’ll be the same person managing the whole process from start to finish, including leading in person the team that does the job itself.

We do have some flexibility, so if you have an urgent job, for example a dead or dangerous tree that needs dealing with, please let us know.

Payment: if you hire us for your tree work, payment on job completion is by bank transfer on receipt of our invoice. We do not accept cash payment.

Thank you. I look forward to meeting you and your tree.


I will only use your email address and any other details you submit here to organise your tree work, and will not pass them to anyone else, or send you unsolicited marketing. This website is as safe as they come: try clicking on the padlock sign at the start of the web address, top left in your browser.

Due to administrative constraints and for efficiency reasons, I exclusively use email for work. I’m a bit deaf (not work related), and do not advertise a work phone number. If you don’t hear from me, please check your spam folder, and then add my email address to your email address book, and/or ‘safe sender’ list.

We do not supply wood chip, mulch, logs, stumps, branches, or any other tree based material.

We like pruning trees, not removing them, unless they are dead or dangerous. If you would like me to quote to remove a tree, please let me know why, and attach a photo or two to your contact form showing the whole tree and any damage.


Coronavirus update

In line with Government advice, we are taking on all types of tree work, while following safety guidelines. This includes trying to stay 2m away from colleagues, customers and other members of their households, neighbours, and passersby.

Please assist us in minimising our interactions in person.

Using the form below, please give me as much detail as you can about what you would like to achieve from the work.

If you are happy for me to quote you an estimated price range based on photos (perhaps with a video clip), please choose that option below, and upload the files.

Otherwise, I will arrange a mutually convenient time to visit to inspect your tree(s) in person, usually by bicycle if you’re close enough to N16 8DH.

I will then email you the quote, which will clearly state the proposed work, along with all other details. Please ensure you read the whole thing and are happy with it.

If you accept the quote, when we come to do the work there should be little need for any further interaction.

We are largely self-sufficient on the job.

We will already have agreed the job specification, in the quote.

Thank you, but we do not require access to your electricity, or drinks.

As a significant part of the job involves walking between the tree and the van with equipment and cuttings, we do ask for your help in blocking a big parking space (one and a half spaces i.e. 7m) for us, and providing visitor parking vouchers if you’re in a controlled parking zone, potentially for two vehicles. These should be placed in a plastic bag for us at least 72 hours before we come to do the work. Alternatively, we can organise a parking suspension at additional cost.


If you can’t see a contact form below, please try updating your browser, or using a different browser.

Luke and his team were careful, polite and incredibly professional. I look forward to working with them again.

Luke and his team did a great job on a very large tree in my small garden. They sorted all the necessary permits and on... the day were punctual, friendly and surprisingly quiet. Access to the garden is only through the flat, so there was a lot of branches which had to be carried through to the street, which was all done with minimal mess and no damage to any of our walls. In fact, both garden and flat were tidier after they left than when they arrived!read more

I had a very tall eucalyptus tree fall in my garden. Luke and his colleague came along and expertly removed it. They... were professional, friendly and did a great job cleaning up the hallway that they carried the wood through, to the street. The communication from start to finish was clear, which always helps! Good value too. I thoroughly recommend more

Luke has done multiple jobs for us in front and back garden in Dalston involving tree reduction, wisteria and a vicious... kiftsgate rose. He was punctual, professional and did a superb job - all the plants look great and are thriving. He takes real care with wildlife and cleans up immaculately. Highly more

We only really got to enjoy the fruits of Luke's flawless work in Summer when our trees showed off their immaculate... shapes and bore more fruit than any previous year - just couldn't be happier with the service from start to finish!read more

Outstanding service: friendly, tidy, very professional, and all communications were prompt and helpful. I was under... time pressure to have the job done quickly and they got it done faster than any other business was able to offer. I would strongly recommend more
