While it may be possible in some circumstances to offer a rough estimate of the cost of tree surgery based on a photograph and a description of the access, it is generally necessary for our qualified tree surgeons to make a site visit, not only to view the tree and assess the access, but also to discuss the options open to you.

While it may be possible in some circumstances to offer a rough estimate of the cost of tree surgery based on a photograph and a description of the access, it is generally necessary for our qualified tree surgeons to make a site visit, not only to view the tree and assess the access, but also to discuss the options open to you.

However, if you have a tree that needs attention at the front of a property or if the tree is clearly visible from the road or an alley, it may be possible to offer a quote without making an appointment for a site visit and options can be discussed over the phone. Our aim is to make the process as hassle free for you as possible.

If you have a number of trees and need an expert opinion about the amount of work required or you are acting for a third party, then you may require a Tree Survey with Recommendations. We will be happy to provide you with a fixed cost quotation for this work. If you need a formal, written professional opinion that may, for instance be required by a Mortgage Lender, Insurance Company, Planning Consultant or Local Authority or any other professional body, then our highly qualified London-based tree surgeons will be happy to prepare a detailed survey with costings for you.

We do not impose a minimum charge, unlike other London tree surgeons, and we do not have an hourly rate, as each tree and site is assessed on an individual basis. Our assurance is that the work will be carried out by our qualified tree surgeons, to your satisfaction, for the cost quoted in advance.

We are always happy to offer free quotations and advice with, of course, no obligation. The cost quoted is always dependent on the size, situation and type of tree work required and includes disposal of the main pieces of wood and arisings – the smaller branches, leaves and general debris.

We aim to make any appointment necessary at your convenience and weekend appointments are certainly possible.
