Excellent service from Active Arborists - tree surgery and garden maintenance

I would thoroughly recommend the service provided by Reece Betts, tree surgeon - Active Arborists. I have a cottage in Suffolk which I rent out. I live in South Essex. Reece was able to conduct the initial survey for me of trees at my cottage and sent me through pictures and a written report. I decided to go ahead with his recommendations. He and his partner did the work last Saturday and I met him on site for the first time. He did an excellent job of reducing my trees and removing the waste. I now know my trees are safe in the event of a storm. The cost was extremely competitive. He was very reliable, doing what he said he was going to do at the time he said he was going to do it. Five stars!

Over the moon! Highly recommend

Couldn’t recommend enough! Was put in touch with Reece through a friend of mine who had some work done and they were over the moon with his work so I got in contact and have to say I’m feeling the same! Very professional young man who I will be calling to do some more work again and would recommend anyone needing work done to Reece. Trees were reduced and dealt with perfectly, couldn’t of asked for more!
