Both Leah in the office and Darren were a pleasure to deal with during the visit for the quote, and during the work – knowledgeable, thorough, efficient, discreet, and nothing was too much trouble even when I asked for one of the branches to be adjusted after he had already come down. Would highly recommend to others and will use Love Trees again!”

Mr Espley . Forest Hill. Ash tree reduction. December 2020

‘’I can highly recommend the professional team from Love Trees for anyone needing to take care of trees in their garden. They were able to help us out pruning the overgrown Tamarik – a job too small for tree surgeons and too big for usual gardeners to undertake. Love Trees team presently agreed to take care of it, providing me with good advice and efficient service. We would definitely ask them again next time, highly recommended.’’

Mrs Iwashita. Tree and shrub pruning. Peckham. October 2020

‘’Extremely happy with the service you all provided from the initial call, the appointment to review the works and then the completion.  The team turned up dead on time which was fantastic.

Time and consideration was taken in the needs of the large Oak, and the clearing up was through.

I’d happily use again and will in the New Year.  I’d recommend to anyone 100%’’

Ms McDermot. Penge. Crown lifting of a large oak tree and the pruning of other trees. October 2020

‘’This is the 2nd time we’ve used Love Trees and we’ll definitely use them again. Super efficient from start to finish – came out to scope the work, followed up quickly with the quote and all work completed as planned. The guys put out notices the day before to reserve parking space and notify our neighbours of scheduled work. We didn’t even need to ask this. Turned up on time, got on with the job despite the rain and cleaned up afterwards. Absolutely nothing i would change, reasonably priced and a great team. No hesitation in recommending them.’’

Also not to mention facilitating delivery of the woodchip cuttings to local neighbours responding kindly to enquires. All in all a great service & a great team.’’

Mr Codjoe.  Tree removal. Camberwell. June 2020

Ben Drummond. Stump removals. Crystal Palace. April 2020

‘’ Darren was a big help as parking and trying to save 3 spaces is difficult in this area, I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to do this and the work wouldn’t be carried out, so this was a big relief for me. The guys and blue were very polite, happy and friendly and helped me move some large pots out the way that I forgot to do.  The trees were cut down to my specification and everything was cleared away and left tidy. Great job done with no fuss and reasonably priced, would recommend this team and use them again.’’

Matt from Sydenham. Cherry tree reduction in January 2020

‘’Love Trees have been marvellous in their professional approach in fixing up the appointment, arranging necessary council permissions and of course in carrying out the pruning.  The delightful workmen turned up on time, worked quickly and efficiently, all debris was cleared and taken away and they left everything in a very tidy state.  Very happy all round and I would certainly use them again in the future and will recommend them to friends.’’

Hilary. Apple tree reduction in Lewisham. January 2020

”The team at Love Trees are brilliant. We have used them to prune our trees for many years and they have always been friendly and efficient in every aspect – from dealing with an enquiry to clearing away the branches and leaves and leaving the neat and site tidy – including our house, through which everything has to be carried! They are expert tree surgeons who know their craft and understand exactly how to work with nature.”

Simon & Simonne of Balham, SW London. December 2019

”Darren and his team were extremely professional and communicative, liaising with me and my neighbour about lifting the crown of a dense ash tree behind our houses. We now have so much more light and, most importantly, the tree is happy too – I highly recommend Love Trees!”

Miss Footman. Tree reductions. Crystal Palace. September 2019.

‘’ I work as a Property Manager for a local Estate Agents.
One of my Landlords suggested I use them for one of my managed properties as they had previously done work on the garden before.
The work has been carried out to a very high standard, in a solid time frame. The LL, the tenant and myself are very happy.
The price was also very competitive.
They will be my first port of call for similar works moving forward.’’

Mr Brewster. Sydenham Cherry tree reduction. September 2019

‘’The work was carried out very quickly, efficiently and too a high standard. The guys cleaned up all the debris and even cleaned our neighbours garden as some of the debris fell that side.’’

Mr Gateson . Tree Reduction and tree removal. Sydenham. August 2019

‘’ We have now been using Love Trees for five years and so have got to know Darren and the team quite well. Darren knows about trees, we have several species around our property which all need careful attention from time to time. We have no hesitation in phoning Darren to come along and give us his advice.

The work which has been undertaken has always improved the look of the trees and we have had no problems with promptness and clearing up.

Good luck in the future.’’

Paul. Tree removal and stump grinding. Beckenham. August 2019.

”Highly satisfactory, highly recommended – all work carried out with maximum efficiency and minimum  fuss. Darren and his Team are reliable, professional and trustworthy.”

Mr Wilkinson. Crystal Palace. Tree removal. July 2019

‘’The team were absolutely fantastic. Quick and smooth job, on time and cleared up all the debris afterwards, polite and courteous can’t recommend highly enough’’

Nicola. Tree Removal. Wandsworth. June 2019

”I have been working with Darren & team for a few years now and I would not go anywhere else.
Their work is efficient and clean, the company very approachable and they will even give you a few tips and suggestions, how to look after your garden.”
Martina. Tree removal. Crystal palace. June 2019

”We have used Love Trees at two different properties, each with several trees which needed pruning.  Darren was very sensible with his advice about what might be done.  One of the properties also has a large overgrown garden, which we’re not yet ready to have cleared.  Darren noticed this, but didn’t put us under pressure by trying to persuade us to have the lot done, limiting himself to cutting back the largest trees which was why we had called him in.  Having received an acceptable quote, a date was arranged, with Love Trees taking care of the local authority permission meanwhile; this was needed because both properties are in conservation areas.  On the day, Darren and his team turned up on time, and were very obliging, checking exactly which branches and smaller growths were to be cut back.  This was all done efficiently.  All the cuttings were cleared, chipped and taken away afterwards.”

Mr  Siederer. Tree and shrub Pruning. New Cross. November 2018 

”Many thanks to Darren and the other two very hard workers (whose names to my shame I don’t remember).   Years of neglect plus the very hot summer had contributed to the mess that the garden had become, plus our neighbour’s intention to take down his fence and cause even more havoc!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Love Trees, nice people, hard workers and they do a great job whether up trees or scrambling through overgrown shrubs – remove it, trim it, crown it, reduce it –  great work and all the trimmings etc. removed.”

Mrs Steele. Tree and Shrub pruning. Anerley. November 2018

”I would like to say how impressed I was with Darren and his team and the professionalism that has been shown at every stage of the works.

The courtesy call I received the day prior to Darren arriving to assess the job and again the day prior to the works commencing was a sign of the level of dedication and expertise to expect from Love Trees.

The work was carried out swiftly and expertly and my property and grounds, as well as the neighbouring gardens and the street to the front of my property were all left clean and tidy.

The cost for the works was very reasonable and the level of care and consideration given to my neighbours and their premises was unparalleled.

I have already spoken with Darren regarding his assistance in supplying and planting replacement shrubs and trees in spring and I look forward to working with him and the Love Trees team in the future.

I’m glad I no longer need to search for a reliable and cost effective arboriculturalist.”

Robin Irwin Brown. Tree and hedge reductions and pruning. Crystal Palace. October 2018

”Im very pleased with the work they did on my 6 trees. I have used them twice now & they had delivered a good service. I would definitely recommend them!”

Chariya. Tree Pollarding. Crystal Palace. October 2018

”I have used Darren a few times for dead tree removal, large conifer shaping and general shrub and hedge trimming. He’s reliable, thorough and neat and tidy plus he understands plants and trees in terms when to prune and how hard to prune etc. Thoroughly recommended.”

Martin. Tree Pruning. Beckham. September 2018

”Darren and his team delivered a 5 star professional service, they cut down two gigantic trees in my garden and left the site spotless tidy and clean for a very reasonable price (the best I could find). I highly recommend these guys.”

Pablo. Crystal Palace. Hedge removal. August 2018

”’I’m not sure that words can do justice to yesterday’s brilliant job. After years of inadequate pruning by other tree companies which always left the three large olive trees at the front of my property looking worse, not better … Darren and his team really delivered the goods! The olives were pruned to perfection and I could recommend the services of Love Trees more highly. From my very first email contact through to Darren’s attendance on the day, the experience has been efficient, friendly and highly professional. ”

Mr Bland. Olive Tree reductions. Fulham. July 2018 

‘’Darren’s knowledge immediately impressed us when he came to do a survey and Leah was bright and cheerful back in the office. We needed a large horse chestnut cutting back and removal of a wisteria stump. Everything went smoothly and the team worked really hard on the day, leaving everything tidy when they had finished. We were delighted with the results and feel we got great value in view of the amount of work (not to mention the skill/risk/equipment involved). We have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Simon. Sydenham. Tree reductions. May 2018. 

”Darren and his team came to carry out the felling of a massive mature poplar tree in my back garden. From the outset, they were polite, professional and always very tidy. Even the neighbours remarked about how friendly and knowledgeable they were. Despite challenging weather conditions, they finished the job and carved a wonderfully rustic bench out of the stump, which my kids love to play on. I would recommend them without hesitation any time”

Jill Thomas. Dangerous tree removal. Wandsworth. February 2018.

”This is the second time I’ve used Love Trees. On both occasions they were reliable and efficient. Couldn’t fault their standard of work. Will use again.”

Karen. Hedge and tree reductions and pruning. Surbiton. January 2018.

”The work was professional and thorough. I particularly appreciated the attention to keeping the house and garden clean, as all the waste had to come out through the house. The team were prompt, professional, and worked quickly.”

Mrs Brooks. Tree Reductions. Bromley. December 2017.

‘’This is a great company. The quote was in line with other firms and I chose them because of their customer reviews. The job (removal of a fairly large blue cedar including stump grinding) was booked in for a couple of weeks hence and was carried out carefully with no damage to surrounding trees and plants. It seemed, at first, expensive but when you deduct the VAT and bear in mind that there were three people working (Darren plus two assistants) and that it was energetic work and not without danger, that there was specialist equipment needed and, finally, factoring in the travelling time, I ended up thinking it was totally fair value. Good and helpful liaison with the office (Leah) also contributed to a very satisfactory experience and I would not hesitate to recommend them.’’

Anthony. Tree and stump removal. West Norwood. November 2017

‘’Many thanks for a job well done!’’
Mrs Harris. Crystal Palace. Tree Removal and tree reduction. October 2017

”Bennu Services Ltd/Love Trees representatives provided an excellent efficient service form commission to completion of the task we required.
Communication with the company was fast and easy, and their responses were timely and exceptionally efficient.
Operatives arrived on site on time, conducted the work required safely and efficiently, and the site was left clear and tidy.
We were very happy with the service provided and would be happy to re-engage them should we have any future requirements.”

Fulham Girls School. Fulham. October 2017

“Darren and his team were punctual, polite and extremely efficient, completing the work well within time and leaving the site immaculate.  I’d like to thank Darren and the team for showing great sensitivity when working in the burial ground, asking questions about the people buried here beforehand and taking great care around the mementos which visitors have left.  We were wanting to reuse all the material on site in order to create more artwork from timber and Darren listened carefully to what was needed and stored the wood safely in a corner of the garden.  His team also ensured all the chippings, which we’ll use to mulch the beds, were left tidily in two top soil bags.  In addition,  a large buddleia had blown over in the heavy rain a few days before and Darren and his team cleared this at no extra charge. The team were fantastic, professional and great value for money and I cannot recommend them enough.”

Helen. Bankside Open Spaces Trust. Southwark. Dead Tree Removal. July 2017

‘’I recently had an Elder flower and an Olive tree up crowned and pruned in Penge. Darren was there on time with a helper, together they made short work of pruning the trees and clearing the debris. The work Darren did created more light in my garden and most importantly he did it so well that one can’t tell the trees have been pruned, they look like nature has not been disturbed. This I think is a testament to great skill on Darren’s part. When necessary I will certainly use Love Tree again.’’

Christine. Penge. Tree reduction. June 2017

‘’ Many thanks, your guys were amazing so I’m very happy. They were very helpful and thoughtful and happy… v cool. ‘’

Mr Hickman. Deptford. Stump Removal. June 2017

”I have been using Love Tree’s to look after maintain and manage several large tree’s and hedges for several years now.
I have always found Darren and his team to be highly professional, diligent and trustworthy.
Darren is very easy to deal with, always keen to help, will work at solving any problems and never leave a job till its finished to your satisfaction.
Its great to be able to book Love Trees in to do a job in the knowledge that I can leave them to it and know its as good as done.
Highly recommended, I will be using them again no doubt.”

Mr Marr. West Norwood. Dangerous Tree Removal. June 2017

‘Darren and his team did a fantastic job of trimming our tree. They were thoroughly professional, turned up on time and left the place spotless. We can’t recommend them enough’.

Stanley. Penge. Hedge reduction. May 2017

‘’ we are absolutely delighted with the work that Love Trees  did.They were punctual, listened carefully to what we wanted, very tidy( no leaves or debris left at all ) and worked quickly and efficiently. Will be recommending Love Trees to our friends.’’

The Irvine family. Twickenham. Tree and vegetation reductions. May 2017

”Bennu Services Ltd AKA Love Trees is a great company who offered keen pricing to reduce to a stump the 30ft bay tree in the garden of our new home. Their friendly team turned up on time, worked quickly, safely & efficiently, and left the site tidy. They even did some extra work, unprompted, refusing the offer of further payment. Highly recommended.”

Jonny H. Crystal Palace. Tree removal. May 2017

”I would just like to thank you and the team for the work you have done. As I get older I’m finding that I can’t do many of the jobs I used to do myself but I’ve had trouble getting reliable and competent help. Despite it being a small job, Love Trees were totally professional from the initial phone call to completion and the work was done to my complete satisfaction.”

Mr Brooks. South East London. Tree removal. April 2017

”Everything went very well. I was going to book my dog into day care so she didn’t get in the way, but it was lucky that I didn’t because the guys were so quick removing the tree and its roots that they were finished before the time of the day care pick up!”

Anna. South Norwood. Tree and stump removal. April 2017

”Thank you Leah. The garden looks great. I really appreciated Darren being so flexible and doing more than we had originally discussed. He and his colleague were really helpful, as always, and gave really useful advice about how much to cut back the trees.”
Mrs Priddle. East Sheen. Tree reductions. March 2017

”We are very pleased with work carried out by Darren and his team.
We can’t believe what a difference it has made to our garden as our lime tree is so huge and imposing, causing the end of the garden to be in constant shade.
Darren has done such a great job so the garden now feels a lot more open and inviting letting in so much more light which is wonderful.
We would definitely recommend Love Trees as the whole process was completed from getting the quote to the work being carried out in the space of a week.”
Ms Mussard. Crystal Palace. Lime tree reduction. March 2017

‘’ We have used Love Trees several times for work on our trees and have always been very happy. They are great value, really helpful and do an excellent job. We will definitely use them again and would highly recommend. Their beautiful dog is an added bonus!’’

Mrs Mori, Hampstead, North West London. Tree Reductions. February 2017

‘’Just to say that I have had a quick glance at what has been done and your company has stuck to its usual high standard.  We don’t take this quality of work for granted, having previously had indifferent operatives on occasions.  The place looks tidy, for which we are grateful, and we look forward to hearing from you in a couple of months when the rest of the re-angling of the tree on the western boundary has to be undertaken.
With kind regards to you and your colleagues’’
Mr McLellan, Sydenham. Tree reductions, tree felling and stump removal. January 2017

“It was a pleasure working with Love Trees from start to finish. A very professional and efficient team, they gave me good advice on what was best for my garden. The work was also excellent with no mess. I was impressed! I highly recommend Love Tree for any gardens.”
Graziella Jeffery . Fulham, London. Tree Reduction and maintenance. December 2016.

‘’ Love Trees, have been looking after our trees and shrubs for quite a few years now and anyone who is looking for a good tree surgeon and especially for people who do love their trees, then this is the company for you.
They are very safety conscious, incredibly tidy and leave the gardens probably in a better state than they started.
They tackle the most awkward trees in very awkward positions and still manage to get an excellent result.
Their costs are very reasonable compared with many other companies and our company and personally highly recommend them.’’
T.D.Wingham & Co.Limited, Bromley. Tree Removal. December 2016

 ”Darren and his team did a great job on our garden. We had several overgrown trees which they reshaped and crown-lifted. The work was done really sensitively, with an eye to the overall look of the garden and ensuring our privacy was maintained. They also left the garden tidier than when they arrived!”
Mr Canterbury. Upper Norwood. Crown lifting and dead wooding. November 2016.

Rhiannon.  Croydon. November 2015

‘We were delighted with the work which Darren & Colleague (sorry I didn’t get his name) did for us. A long day in the garden removing self-seeded seedlings and lopping branches from an outsize pear tree. They removed and disposed of masses of 1 metre thick ivy on the concrete fence whilst preserving the roses. In addition Darren gave advice on sustainable planting of replacement trees more suited to a suburban garden, and growing the ivy back in a manageable way.. Highly Recommended.’
Val & Derek Lamb – Norbury. October 2015

‘Darren has done work for me on several occasions and I find it to be exemplary.  First time was to clear my top garden of several very old and wild trees resulting now, several years later with the garden I always hoped to have.  He once saved my kitten from the top of the highest tree it could find to climb in the woods.  He came when I couldn’t get anyone else to help!
Recent visits have been cosmetic, giving serious haircuts to my oak tree which tries it’s best to touch the sky.
Work is always done as specified and all areas have been left in the most tidy fashion.
He is very knowledgeable and a thoroughly nice man to deal with.
I have recommended him several times to neighbours and will continue to do so.’
Janet Price – Bromley. October 2015

Leo Russell, Brixton. September 2015

Jan Doole, Balham. September 2015

‘Many thanks for your prompt service, greatly appreciated. Lovely job done by your team.’
Rosalind. Property Manager Richmond. August 2015

‘Extremely pleased with the work so thank you very much. Will definitely recommend you to friends etc.’
Chris Sherran. Bickley. July 2015

‘HIRE THEM. Mind you, the muscles, jawline, and tattoos make Darren almost scary butch.  But just get him talking about vegetation…  PUSSYCAT.

He and his mate showed up today at the promised time and rapidly, efficiently, and cleanly dismantled a bay tree, mattocking and grinding out its stump,  that had got well too large for the back garden.  It’s gone, we’re delighted (albeit a bit regretful, it wasn’t the tree’s fault that we wanted the sun it had been appropriating, and it was a lovely specimen), and we don’t have a bad thing to say about Darren & Co.

Not only that, they tidied away some volunteer trees in the front garden for another few quid — so they’re flexible and helpful along with all the other good things I already noted.
Did I mention HIRE THEM?’
Alex. East Dulwich. – June 2015

The whole experience from asking for a quote, meeting Darren, the speed and clarity of the quote, the communication, the cutting, the clearing up and the way the job was done overall, was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone and it was a pleasure to give you  the work. Thank you to all concerned.’
Mike. Kent July 2014

‘The work done was very professional and I had absolute confidence in the tree surgeon and this  is why I have engaged him to do the tree pruning for the last 5 years. Both he and his assistant were extremely tidy both in the garden and the house, as all the felled wood and cuttings had to be taken through the house.’
Denise. Wandsworth-  January 2014

‘Very pleased with Darren’s work following the loss of two large trees to storms. Darren’s disposal of the lumber included preparation of firewood for us and he left some beautifully cut planks which we can now readily use. He left the site clean and tidy and we were able to make all arrangements very easily with Leah.’
Richard. Lewisham November 2013

‘I was very pleased with the work undertaken yesterday. It was a first class job, with the men working tirelessly. Also, thank you for all your help with arranging the quotations and the booking etc.’

‘Please thank the team for the works they did yesterday in our rear garden. They did a marvelous job we are very pleased with the results!’
Richard. Bromley. April 2013

” We are very pleased and the boys, they are great.  Don’t know their names but the guy with the gold tooth was an absolute star up the big tree all day yesterday in all that terrible weather trying to make it look something and not drop anything through the greenhouse.
I think Darren can be very proud of them, good manners, tidy and nice to boot..”
Kate. Croydon. November 2012

” As manager of 2 rather large properties in the Blackheath area, it is important to keep them maintained to a high standard all of the time.
This is were a team of professional trades come into play and help me achieve this.
One of these is Love Trees and without these fantastic people our gardens would be wild to say the least.
We have used these guys for over 6 years and their attention to detail along with arriving on time to site and doing a fantastic job with such skill and organisation is topped by Darren’s wonderful personality and respect for people’s property and surroundings.

Darren has a truly great team behind him, and this starts with Leah in the office whom without doubt has the most beautiful and professional way when dealing with clients.

I could go on but if you want to know more about this great organisation then pick up the phone and find out for yourselves.

A very happy property manager.”
Diana.  Lewisham. September 2012

” Thank Darren for a good job and hope all goes well for his operation”

“I am delighted with the work, it has been completed to the very highest standard. I would be very grateful if you could put a note to do an annual check and carry out any required work for me.
Kind Regards.”
Elmhurst School, Croydon. August 2011 

“We are extremely pleased with the work done, it has transformed the garden.  Darren has thinned out the remaining trees, bringing with it light, without destroying our privacy.  I didn’t expect them to clean and clear-up quite as diligently as they did for the money.
Best of luck.”
Carley Hasam. July 2011

“We were absolutely delighted with the work carried out on our bay tree yesterday.  Really it has made such a difference to our garden.  I have to say we were amazed at how immaculate the garden was left so please do extend a huge thank you to your team – not a single leaf was left on the lawn and our rather delicate acer plants directly under the bay were completely untouched which can’t have been easy!
Thank you again.”
Best regards,
Lucy Farrely. May 2011

“Prestigious trees did a fabulous and very efficient job of completely removing a very large leylandii and 2 large plum trees. In addition the team also trimmed back and shaped our neighbours hedge.  All of this was done in less than a day and it was like they were never there as the stumps were ground and they took all of the cuttings and waste with them.

The team was also very good as keeping in contact to let us know exactly when to expect them.  The cost of the service was very reasonable and in line with other quotes we received.

I would fully recommend Darren and the team.”
John Holmes. March 2011

Many thanks for your skillful work. We are very pleased with the shape of the  tree!
