Having used various tree surgeons in different properties over many years, I have no hesitation in saying that the Gristman team were exceptional. Clearly knew their trees, how best to treat them and how to manage them in a safe , efficient tidy manner. A first rate service from initial site inspection, to report advice, to completion of the works. (Reviewed February 2023)
Rob and his team did an excellent job supporting us in another application to prune TPO trees in our garden. This is the second time we've used them as they are so good. They handled the application to the planning authorities and negotiated with them on our behalf to reach a successful outcome. Their tree surgery work is excellent and we were once again impressed by the care and attention they took with the rest of our garden when undertaking the works. They did a great job clearing up too! I thoroughly recommend them. Rob's expert knowlege of trees and tree health is brilliant. (Reviewed January 2023)

Superb service from Rob and his team. From the quote to the work done and then follow up to make sure we were happy.

Excellent service. Very responsive to requested timing, friendly and onsite very responsive to any requests. I have no hesitation in recommending them highly. (Reviewed August 2022)
An outstanding service from a very well informed and knowledgeable team. The two guys who carried out the removal of four large fir trees, ground out the stumps and removed all rubbish were polite, efficient, quick and very tidy. They also managed, at the last minute, to trim my very high beech hedge and prune back an over growing tree. I could not recommend them highly enough. (Reviewed August 2022)
We used Gristman tree surgery to cut my mother in laws hedges this year as I can no longer cope with the job. She has 200 metres of mixed hedges up to 3 metres tall in places but generally two metres, The job was completed in one day with no disruption. The level of work is excellent. The hedge has not looked this good for many years. (Reviewed July 2022)
We have used Gristman for many many years as they are consistently professional and excellent at the work they do and the advice they provide.
They have provided a whole range of services to us over this time and they are polite and hard working at all times as well as tidying up after as well.
We have recommended them to anyone that asks and never had any bad feedback from any of them.
Their pricing is competitive as the work carried our is of such a high professional quality with due regard to health and safety throughout, as well.
I cannot recommend them highly enough. (Reviewed June 2022)

GREAT COMPANY TO DEAL WITH ALL VERY FRIENDLY.

(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.

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)
