I’ve had issues with an oak tree for some time, and have had various tree surgeons assess it, but most were either unsure how to tackle its removal or their prices were exceptionally high. After speaking to Kanye, he promptly arranged a site visit, and worked out a plan of action on how to remove it. I would totally recommend him to anyone looking for a professional arborist.
Kanye has been attending to my hedges and tree felling needs for some time now.
He is reliable, trustworthy, and takes great pride in everything he does. His knowledge is also vast.
I can honestly say it is a pleasure to have him working for me. 10/10 from me!!
