A job very well executed under difficult circumstances, location and weather-wise.

Many thanks indeed for the wonderful job you have done with my trees - I am so pleased. The Silver Birch has been reduced to a manageable size, the Ash removed and the Sycamore shaped beautifully. Sam and Ellis worked tirelessly yesterday to complete the job and succeeded in cutting a recalcitrant Ash stump to the ground!

Very good company.

We had a tree survey completed for school. We received a very good comprehensive report at a reasonable price. Good communication and service. Would definitely recommend and use again.

Tree surgery works

We have used WRC for the past two years to survey our site and carry out any remedial work. They have always provided an excellent service. They are very knowledgeable and thorough in their work and the communication throughout has been very efficient. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
