Been using Andy and the team for 3 years. Great service as always. Would not hesitate to recommend. (Reviewed January 2019)
This work was carried out at a time convenient to Acorn, and was fitted in at a time when other small jobs for other clients could be undertaken..
This makes good business sense but leaves the customer with a lengthy wait.An indication that this could extend to over a month would have been welcome.
I have no complaint about the standard of work-it was very good. (Reviewed December 2018)
Friendly down to earth and understood what I needed. Very tidy and left the site clean. Gave a date of expected completion and stuck to it. (Reviewed December 2018)
Very friendly, professional service and would certainly recommend and use again. Very reasonable rates. (Reviewed November 2018)
Very happy every time we get these guys in - it's like the garden fairies come in and sort everything out how we want it and tidy it all up afterwards with no fuss or bother... (Reviewed November 2018)
Knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly. Ensured that all was done as requested and that I was happy with the job before leaving. They were also diligent in cleaning up on completion of the work. (Reviewed November 2018)
Acorn trimmed our magnolia tree. Very happy with the service. Expert advice. Polite and tidy and fairly priced. Will definitely use again. (Reviewed October 2018)
Andy and his team were very professional, polite and fast in their work. Despite the difficulties of having to completely remove 3 large trees that were partially hanging over several neighbouring gardens, they finished ahead of schedule and even offered to perform some other secondary prunings and trimmings around the garden free of charge to fill the remaining time. I can't recommend them highly enough and would gladly contact them again for any such further work in the future. (Reviewed October 2018)
The work was completed in a professional manner and the garden and surrounds were left tidier than before the work was carried out. (Reviewed September 2018)
Turned up bang on time, cut down trees and removed some shrubs really efficiently. Cleared up and left garden as if they had never been. Can't fault them. (Reviewed September 2018)
Very pleased with job done. Professional, thorough and left the site clean and tidy. (Reviewed September 2018)
Andy came round and priced up to tidy up our oak tree and prune our cherry tree. He came round while we were out he did a fantastic job and left our garden tidy and free of rubbish.
We would like to thank him for what he has done and would certainly recommend him to our friends & family. (Reviewed September 2018)
The company arrived when they said they would. They pruned 4 trees, two of which overhanging from adjacent gardens. They carried out the work in a very efficient and professional way. I was totally happy with what they did. (Reviewed September 2018)
Andy and his team of two did a great job lowering the silver birch in my garden. They were very diligent about safety and didn't rush the work. They took care to keep the shape of the tree and tidied up well at the end of the job. I have already recommended them to friends for the future. (Reviewed May 2018)
Andy came round twice so he could provide accurate quotes (we decided to have a second tree felled), we received written quotes via email promptly.
Andy and his colleagues arrived about 8am and got straight to work. They were all courteous & friendly (waving to our 2&1/2 year old who was fascinated by the work). They all worked really hard during a hot spell of weather.
Andy explained everything clearly, regarding what they were doing and when.
The following day Andy felled our holly tree in 5 minutes and finished off the willow tree. The garden was left tidier than it was before the work was started!
I think it is really god value for money considering Andy is up really high, using a chainsaw whilst attached to the very thing he is cutting down.
We would definitely recommend (Reviewed May 2018)
Turned up on time, were polite and professional, cleared up behind themselves, and also checked with neighbours's satisfaction with clear up. (Reviewed May 2018)

Trees very close to house, shed, conservatory and neighbour's house and garage. Difficult access to one tree through lean-to shed and conservatory. Trees felled cleanly with no damage to surrounding area or shrubs/plants. All waste removed cleanly despite the confined space needed to be carried through. Very impressed with work undertaken. (Reviewed February 2018)
Good communication from contractor with customer and his team. Kept fully informed during the works. Some of the tree work which included removal of a 30ft Acer and stump grinding, had to be undertaken in a very confined space to save a wall. Respectful of neighbours and their vehicles. Very tidy on completion. Advice given regarding replanting. Competitive quote . Happy with work and neighbours asking for quotes too. Thank you, especially for helping us make the right decision regarding removal of the tree. No hesitation recommending. (Reviewed February 2018)

We have used Acorn on several occasions; they are unfailingly prompt and polite when they arrive to do the work. They carry this out in a thoroughly safe and professional manner and afterwards every scrap of wood is removed down to the last twig, unless we have asked for the logs to be left. In addition their charges are very reasonable. Unhesitatingly recommended. (Reviewed January 2018)

The work was carried out quickly and efficiently and all debris was removed apart from a few logs which I requested to make a log pile fpr wildlife. Andy explained my options so that I understood the costs and what would be done and the work was completed as per the quote. My parents were also very pleased with a tree felling job done by Acorn Tree Specialists so I am happy to recommend them. (Reviewed December 2017)
Acorn Tree specialists have carried out tree and hedge work for me for several years.This has always been done to a high standard.Recomended (Reviewed December 2017)
Andy is superb, so courteous and nothing too much trouble. This is the second time he has rescued our cat from a tree (80ft), RSPCA would not help and cat had been there, bitterly cold. Andy is always reassuring, understands the predicament and managed to retrieve the cat within the hour, despite being a tough job. Superb business highly recommended. (Reviewed November 2017)

Excellent work. Andy called me to double check during the process what was needed to happen (I had been considering reshaping vs felling, and had opted for reshaping) and wanted to ensure I was confident with the choice I had made. The resulting work was better than I could have expected and the tree looks much better with the deadwood removed and height reduced. (Reviewed October 2017)

Andy Baverstock and his team carried out a challenging job in our garden with great professionalism and care. They felled and removed in excess of 20 Leylandii trees, each of which were close to the height of the house. In addition, they felled and removed two Eucalyptus trees that were nearly twice the height of the house, with one growing just a few metres away from the conservatory. Each tree was felled with the utmost care and precision to avoid any possible damage to the buildings. I would have no hesitation in recommending Acorn Tree Specialist Ltd to take care of your trees.
