The lads provided a first class service in taking down our 45 yo Oak tree - that overhung the public path and road. Excellent expertise in carrying out a tricky operation. Cannot fault their level of workmanship and good old fashioned Devon honesty and humour. Great job. Would highly recommend these lads.

This company were prompt to review what we needed, attended the site to discuss what we had applied for consent to do and provided a reasonable price. It fell between prices offered by competitors. We will certainly ask them in future when we have other tree care needs.

I highly recommend A J Paine & Sons, they did a great job at my Dad's removing a large ash tree with die back which was overhanging the garden, and several other medium ash trees too, really thorough and knowledgeable, and nice to deal with.
