I got my tree reduced has it been done well?

Recommended Posts

Hello I had a reduction job done by an arborist local to me. 


I thought in the end my tree looked strange and wasn't sure if the job was done well. 


Can others give me there thoughts?

There are two types of people; those that can extrapolate from incomplete data.





You are the latter.

No its very poor work, did you pick them on price alone?

What did you ask him to do?

I asked for a height reduction but thought it would have looked more shaped

How does this help her tree? 😂

57/8 year old ladies tend to have better grammar than the poster - I smell a rat here.
I think it’s a more-recently ‘educated’ arb looking to rip apart someone’s work (quite rightly, as it is terrible).

      Had some woodchips delivered. Lovely quality and for free. Was able to start my garden project. Am so pleased with the service that i have decided to give a tip for my next tip waste load.

      Excellent result last year. I was contacted by some tree surgeons through the site after about 6 months. They were thoughtful and helpfully left me with several piles of clean woodchip, which now helps suppress weeds under my trees. Great site. Thanks

      Extremely helpful and friendly main contact and the allotment was very easy to tip at. Much appreciated!

      Answered phone, dropped off within 10 mins. Access ok for transit but no bigger. 3.5m3 load. Spot on, saved me a trip to the yard.

      Brilliant! Had two loads delivered, spot on time, great bloke, would not even take a few Bob to cover his time and fuel, over the moon. I just have to cut and split 6 tonnes of logs now. I will have to buy the wife a new splitting axe for Christmas. 😁
