Positive customer references from Our Local Expert: 


Mrs Terris from Exeter , September 6, 2019

I was looking for someone to do my trees as they'd got a bit out of hand. He came and looked at them, gave me the quote, and I was happy to go ahead. I was well pleased. He trimmed and thinned two trees. He was very, very good - and cleaned everything up afterwards.

That little book's ever so good - thank you for doing it!


Andrew S from Whimple , March 6, 2019

Highly recommend Jon and his standard of work. He is an extremely polite and vastly capable individual. Punctual, excellent communication throughout the job, superb level of work ethic and also very reasonable cost wise. Jon left the gardens and access routes absolutely immaculate before departure. Really was a pleasure to deal with. Many thanks

Georgina from Exminster , September 29, 2015

Would have no hesitation in recommending Jon to anyone. He cut down three trees in my garden today. Turned up on time, got the job done in half a day and left the garden tidy.

Mark Sellings from Exeter , May 8, 2015

Jon did a great job of cutting down a large Beech tree and clearing up a load of extra garden waste for me at the same time - Jon is professional, reliable, courteous and I thoroughly recommend him.

Ian Woodley from Whipton Exeter , March 30, 2015

Jon came today to cut back my hedge. 30 ft of privet hedge and 30 ft Laylandii. All overgrown and something I have been putting off for ages. Jon arrived on time and reduced it all to a tidy manageable size in no time. He cleared it all away including my neighbours side. Very pleasant guy great at his job I would recommend him to anyone needing their trees and hedges sorting out.

Ricarda Schmidt from Exeter , March 26, 2015

I asked Jon for advice on a large eucalyptus tree which had started to lean dangerously towards some garages. Jon applied to the council for me for permission to fell/prune the tree. Once permission was granted, Jon quickly agreed on a date with me, and did the tree felling very carefully, but speedily. He left the site as I would have hoped to find it. He was a pleasure to deal with at all times, and his rates are very reasonable. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Marion Craven from Exeter , March 26, 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed Jon working in my garden, clearing a very large area of old, very overgrown Cornus bushes & willow trees. He worked really hard the whole day & did an excellent job. A lovely chap, I would highly recommend him & look forward to using him for more tree work in the future

Teresa from Exeter , March 15, 2015

Jon removed a large fir tree for us and cut back the overgrown hedges.
Jon is polite and friendly he gave us a detailed quote and carried out everything
With care and consideration and swiftly transformed our overgrown space despite a wet cold day. He completed the work and cleaned up the area after showing good customer care hard to find these days, I would have no hesitation in recommending Jon and would use him again.

Catherine Coe from Exeter , March 11, 2015

Jon did a great job of clearing some trees, hedging and a mass of brambles for us.
He was reliable and knowledgeable, showing up when he said he would and working hard. He had information and advice for us and also took care of the restrictions involved in us living in a conservation area; contacting the council on our behalf to get the required permission.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jon for any jobs involving trees and hedging.

Diana from Exeter , November 4, 2014

We are very happy to recommend Briscoe Tree Care. The company responded quickly and efficiently to our initial enquiry. The quote for the work was reasonable. On the agreed date the company arrived promptly, and undertook the work well. We were consulted at every stage and were very pleased with the work undertaken. As a result we arranged for further work to be undertaken later in the year. Again a very prompt and good service was provided. We will be using the firm again in the future.

Claire from West Hill , October 22, 2014

I would highly recommend Briscoe Tree Care. John made light work of cutting a large amount of untidy hedging. The hedges now look lovely. John is super efficient and cleared away all the cuttings, leaving my garden much tidier. Very happy with his service.

Paul Newbery from Exeter , August 6, 2014

Jon arrived as arranged. He was polite but friendly and professional. He reduced 50m of very overgrown hedge and left everything clean and tidy. I would happily recommend him.

Nicholas from Exeter , June 30, 2014

Professional and friendly .. very happy with the work..would recommend to any one needing any tree work

Andrea Griffiths from West Hill/Ottery St Mary , March 20, 2014

When we moved in just before Christmas we were outfaced by the amount of work involved in tidying up the overgrown margins of our quite large garden. I chose John because I liked the comments that had been posted and he exceeded his recommendations, being very cheerful, friendly and willing, He worked extremely hard, cutting back overgrown hedges and removing three very large conifers which were blocking a lot of light. He cleared away all the considerable debris from this work and has made a huge difference to the appearance and attractiveness of the garden.

david hayes from Topsham, Exeter , January 21, 2014

John arrived when he said he would with all the necessary equipment and he worked continuously at my house until the job was completed. He completed the job according to my wishes after an outline discussion. He took away all the debris and the site was left clean and tidy. The garden is small and crowded and he was very careful to ensure nothing was damaged. As I am a fit pensioner it was very helpful that I was able to assist him for an agreed reduction in the overall price, though the work was heavy and not for the faint hearted - I needed a long nap after he left! He was a competent, hardworking and cheerful professional, a pleasure to do business with.

Joan Holton from Exeter , October 11, 2013

Extremely professional, always walks the job first to confirm the work required. Leaves the site clean and tidy takes away all the fellings. Arrives at the specified time and is always very cheerful. I have used this service 3 times now and have a regular booking as I have always been very satisfied with the work done.

Richard Tyrer from Exerer , August 7, 2013

John provided a first class, professional service. He was prompt, polite, extremely efficient and tidy and very competitively priced. I have already requested that he return to quote for additional work. It is not very often that you are offered such good customer service. I would thoroughly recommend him.

Darren Soanes from Exeter , May 7, 2013

Jon did an excellent job reducing the height of two trees in our garden. The price paid was reasonable and the site left tidy afterwards. I would use him again.

Andrew Rose-Price from Pennsylvania, Exeter , April 5, 2012

Thank you.

Gillian W from Exeter , August 16, 2011

I needed some largish shrubs removing with stump grinding and an overhanging tree pruning and a friend recommended Jon. He had cut back a large hedge for them. He was friendly, efficient, clean and tidy. Excellent customer service - he came at times of my choosing to fit in with my work. He mainly advertised tree work but was happy to take out my shrubs.
