What our customers think...

We were extremely pleased with the work South Hams Arborists carried out for us. It was quite a tricky job being alongside a road but the job was carried out safely. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wants a professional job done.

Mr Bishop

I would like to thank you and your team for how brilliantly you dealt with the very complex fell of my Poplar. From our initial site visit for you to establish the feasibility and the cost of the job to the day of completion, you have been totally professional. You carried out everything we agreed and more, the site was left cleaned up so well, there was nothing that was too much bother, brilliant!

Mr Bennett

I employed Ben to cut down one large tree and trim back two others in my garden. This work was done skillfully and safely with very little mess. The logs were all cut up and stacked as required all for a very reasonable cost. I would recommend Ben to anybody else as they will get a job well done.

Mr Gartside

I am absolutely delighted with the work that Ben and his team did for me. The quote was really competitive, Ben was personable, polite and did an excellent job. The felling was carried out to a high standard on a difficult site, and everything was left tidy. Ben is brilliant, so look no further if you need any tree surgery work, because you won’t be disappointed. 

Mrs Boydell

Excellent customer service and a fab job completed. Great work and very professional.

Mrs Shepherd

Did a great job, quick and professional. Thanks to Ben and his team.

Mr Bostock
Aveton Gifford

Ben came in to do our hedges, he did a fantastic job, very neat and tidy. He was friendly and tidied up after himself. Happily recommend him to anyone else.

Mrs Pearson

Fantastic service. Ben was very polite, professional and did a brilliant job of cutting the tree. Any mess was cleared away too. I'd highly recommend Ben and the company.

North Hill, Bodmin

Many thanks for an excellent job - quick, efficient. I was amazed to see the logs all neatly stacked in the fuel store and no mess at all! I am so grateful and recommend highly.

Mrs B
South Milton

You know how pleased we are, but I neglected to thank you both specifically for taking such care to avoid any damage to my plants. I had realised that they would be in the firing line, so to speak and had accepted that collateral damage might well occur in the event. Thanks to your skill and care, not a leaf was been harmed! Thank you. It has been a real pleasure to use your services, and it goes without saying that we would unhesitatingly do so again.
