Difficult job (tall tress and small drop zone) but the Gristman team did it really well. They were thorough and no problem to have around. I would use them again in an instance (Reviewed June 2021)

We use Gristman Tree Surgery for the all round knowledge and skill that every member of the company have from the ground up. Consistency in work and expertise means that we get the whole tree health management package when we use Rob and his team. (Reviewed September 2020)

(Reviewed September 2020)
This is one of several lots of works done by Gristman Tree Surgery Ltd. From discussing from what we required with Rob to the work being completed we were very impressed and would highly recommend them. The work was carried out in good time and the site was clear and very tidy on completion.
Many thanks for a great job. (Reviewed August 2020)
I have used Gristman for many years to trip the trees in my garden. His company delivers a high standard of service. In particular I insist on Robert Grist himself supervising the trimming of my weeping Silver Birch as there is no one else I would trust. (Reviewed June 2020)
Very pleased with Gristman Tree Surgery, quick and efficient job done, very tidy. Also carried out planting which we are very pleased with. Rob is very friendly and professional and easy to deal with. (Reviewed May 2020)
Mostly good. The initial booking took a while, but that was partly because our own calendar in January took some time to firm up. Unfortunately, the initial quote did not take account of the large size of the apple tree so the work took much longer than the two guys anticipated. In spite of this, Rob Grist kept the price as quoted. We appreciated this, so paid him more to compensate for the extra taken. (Reviewed February 2020)
Attended promptly for survey & gave written quote. Gave additional advice.
Team arrived on time & did work quickly & thoroughly, despite rain. Good attention to detail, cleared up before departing.
Value for money was excellent, better than some unqualified tree people who called giving only verbal quotes, which were higher.
We'll use Gristman again & recommend to others. (Reviewed December 2019)
Excellent, friendly and really professional. (Reviewed September 2019)
Used for tree stump grinding. Very quick turnaround on request, professional and friendly service, work done to specification. Would highly recommend. (Reviewed May 2019)
I have used Gristman many times now and they always deliver an excellent service and exhibit a good friendly attitude. (Reviewed July 2018)
Was very happy with the pruning work on the hedges and trees. There was a 4 month gap between quote and the work being done (this was planned) and so what needed to be done had also changed. There was no problem with this, and Gristman were happy to flex what they did. They got through an incredible amount of work quickly. One exceptional thing for me was that the garden was immaculate afterwards - they cleared up absolutely all the cuttings, and put back anything they had moved in order to do that job. (Reviewed July 2018)
Rob and his team are friendly and professional. Rob trimmed our Yew,Olive and Pleached Hornbeam into shape. The garden looks very smart now. I have had a number of people comment very positively. Better than anyone else we have used before. Thank you Rob.

Very efficient. Pleasant and Polite workers. Impeccable and meticulous clearing up.ze (Reviewed February 2017)
We are planning a extension to our house but the proximity of some trees covered by a tree protection order meant that we had to provide a report to show that there would be no impact. Rob worked with the arboriculturalist to define the scope investigation.
He used an airspade to excavate the area where the foundations would be to check for roots which would be damaged if foundations were dug.
Rob was very knowledgeable, understanding the reasons for doing the airspade excavation and what the planning office was likely to require.
He explained up front what he would be doing with the airspade and how messy it could be. He and his team did everything they could to minimise the mess and disruption.
He was very professional in all of his dealings with us, and I would not hesitate to recommend him (Reviewed January 2017)
Excellent service. Rob and his team were very careful and worked diligently to get the result I wanted on this large apple tree. (Reviewed December 2016)

I was delighted with the work which was completed and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone. They were hard working, courteous and very reliable. I was consulted at every stage and never pressured or made to feel concerned. (Reviewed November 2016)
I have used Robert Grist for a number of years and he continues to deliver an excellent quality of work on my trees. In particular he has personally maintained my weeping Silver Birch to a lovely shape. (Reviewed October 2016)
