Very good service. I checked their insurance before the work commenced. They left the garden neat & tidy
Great to deal with quick to respond to a quote request with a sensible price, turned up on the day & time given worked hard throughout the day. Lovely team who we would highly recommend. Thank you for the work you have undertaken & working well with our neighbours.
Brilliant - really great work, done promptly, tidily and by very pleasant people. I would not hesitate to recommend.
Very fast and efficient service. We needed a tree cutting as it was blocking the light to our flat. It now is cut back to the threshold (as explained this is the most he was allowed to do by law). However, it has made a massive difference to the amount of light we receive into the flat.
Polite, prompt and professional. Always a pleasure to deal with someone honest and straightforward. Recommended.
Our old apple tree had sadly died, and Tim came round and safely cut it down, and cut it up into logs for us - as well as chopping some other logs into more manageable sizes for us too! A very friendly and professional service - thank you!
Tim made a great job taking down a big tree and trimming another couple of bad shaped. We'll call hom again for future works.
A complicated tree reduction carried out in a most professional manner. The whole area was carefully cleared afterwards. A most agreeable and helpful team who wasted no time whatsoever. I was totally satisfied with their work and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to others.
I contacted halfacre to see if they could remove 2 trees and about ten stumps - Tim came round to assess job for a quote, we then got a very reasonable quote and he came the following week with his team member - another Tim😀- the guys were so friendly and professional and did a fantastic job! We are definitely going to ask Tim to do more work for us - I highly recommend Halfacre Tree Services - very efficient, professional, and hardworking - and nice guys too!👍😎
Professional service. Great detail put into quote. Excellent value for money. Work was completed quickly and extremely tidily. Well done for working so hard in the extreme heat. No mess left at all. Lovely, friendly people. Tim is clearly extremely knowledgeable and skilled. Great advice given on other trees too. Lots of after care tips given via text to keep trees looking healthy. Would definitely recommend. Excellent all round.
Impressed with very efficient service, quick response and excellent communication throughout. Would thoroughly recommend.
Halfacre came out to remove 6 large overgrown untidy conifers from our front garden that were obstructing the pavement and also removed the stumps. Their quote was by far the cheapest that we had received in the area. Tim did a fantastic job, taking care to tidy up the garden afterwards and along the pavement. He even did some extra work while he was here at a very reasonable price on top of our original quote. The finished result is extremely neat and looks so much better. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Halfacre again!
True Caring Expertise and Excellent Service We needed 3 very large trees (with TPOs) to be trimmed and a medium-sized established garden with a wide variety of smaller trees, enormous hedges and shrubs to be returned to some form of control. Whilst the 3 large trees were used to a visit from a tree-surgeon every 4 or 5 years, the quality of attention had varied and we hadn’t previously found anyone who could combine the required knowledge and ability with the care and sensitivity we wanted. And then we found Halfacre … From his first visit to scope out the job and provide a quote, it was obvious that Tim truly cared about our trees and shrubs. He discussed the needs of each element in relation to our vision in such detail that we learned a lot about our own garden. The same care went into the timely submission of a quote including all the paperwork in connection with Tree Preservation Orders. Dates for the work over several days were planned well ahead and all arrangements on-site were handled smoothly and efficiently. Every member of the team was pleasure to deal with and they undertook the work exactly as agreed, with “walk arounds” before and after to confirm. As we expected, their interventions were always made ‘organically’ - respecting the needs and elegance of each tree or shrub and anticipating future growth. We’re now falling in love with our garden all over again: newly enthused to develop the plans and opportunities it offers whilst enjoying the beauty it gives today.
Professional, reliable and pleasant service provided
Tim is a one stop shop for tree removal, excellent service, excellent work and a very nice man to work with. All in all 5 stars
