I have been using CMS Tree Services for a number of years. Chris is always very professional and very conscientious. He does an excellent job and always clears up afterwards. I highly recommend CMS Tree Services.

Chris was excellent. He called and came when he promised. His work was quick and neat and tidy and he avoided damage to adjacent phone lines. Price was spot on. Highly recommended.

I have bought logs to season your own from CMS for a number of years now and been really pleased with the quality of the logs provided. They are good value. I recently ordered another load for next winter and Chris delivered them 2 days later - a prompt and excellent service. Highly recommend.

Andrew Priory


CMS cut back unruly leylandii and yew and trimmed some larger storm damaged branches. All trimmings and wood were removed and the garden left tidier than when they started. Would definitely recommend.

Highly professional approach from start to finish. Very tidy job done. 100% satisfied.

Fiona Bowley


CMS and Chris did a great job removing some trees from the front of our house so we could enjoy a view once again. He was also good at advising what should be done about our back garden and removed a yew tree that was becoming too big. Good communication throughout and would recommend.

Christopher Tune


Did a great job, neat and tidy, easy to get in touch with and communicated through whole process.

What a superb company CMS Tree Services are. Simply reliable, friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, prompt, caring when tidying up all at a reasonable price. I wouldn't use any one else for my garden.

Mike Calvert


I have used CMS Tree Services a number of times. Chris is very reliable and always does an excellent job. I would not hesitate to recommend CMS Tree Services.

Christopher Collett


As always, Chris made an excellent job of the Tree Pruning. Before starting, we discussed how we wanted the trees to look and he gave advice on what was needed to be done to achieve this.
He left the garden tidy, with all prunings shredded and removed when finished.

Judith Blades


Chris and team removed a large conifer from our rear boundary last week and reduced a lilac and a flowering cherry at the front. They came on time, did what they said, consulted us every step of the way and advised us too to get the best outcome for our garden. They cleared up brilliantly and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. We're having them back to do more work for us in the New Year. Thanks for a job well done!

Jennifer Bell


Chris has done a few jobs for us over several years. He is friendly, professional, keeps excellent communications, and does an amazing job. The most recent work CMS did for us involved clearing a very mature thicket that had once been shrubs, but had become small trees, and clearing a rather large acuba (sp?) and a big ivy bush. Also removing an out-of-control dogwood patch that was about 3 metre diameter. Then the biggest job, which was to take down a very old and large alder that had poor accessibility, and was all but overhanging the slate roof of a big workshop building (eek!) They finished off by grinding back all the stumps so that all areas can go back to grass or be replanted next year. We are beyond impressed with the standard of work. As ever professional, safe, and well under control, with some hefty lumber being brought down from a height, and manoeuvred out through a narrow path. Everything left completely clean and tidy. I don't think we'd ever consider using anyone else for this sort of work - has to be as good as it gets!

As always excellent work carried out by Chris (CMS Tree services). Have used many times and would thoroughly recommend him.

Mary Wooltorton


Chris provided a very competitive quote for felling of a pine tree. He was punctual professional and very competent arborist . I was very impressed with the cleaning up after the tree had been felled. I would definitely recommend.

Hilary Griffiths


This is the third piece of work Chris has done for us and we’d have no hesitation in asking him back again. He is very knowledgeable, always reliable, does an excellent job and leaves everything very neat and tidy.

Excellent service. Chris came out to assess the job required, offered good advice and a good quote. I got a date secured quickly and the work was done quickly and effectively. The neighbours also commented what a great job they did cleaning up after themselves, not just my property, but the street. Would not hesitate to use again or recommend to others.
**EDIT** Was so pleased with the first job, I had Chris back again today to do more work. Wouldn't consider anyone else for the job. Great guy, fantastic efficient job. Nothing too much trouble. Highly rated.



Chris has just completed a big job for us, removing 30 big conifer hedge plants and 5 large conifer trees, including removal from site and stump grinding. He and his team did a really excellent and professional job - they were really pleasant to have around, hard-working and left the site properly finished and really tidy. Would highly recommend.

David Padmore


Chris responded to my enquiry in a very prompt manner and the work was subsequently carried out efficiently and effectively. An absolute pleasure to deal with this company and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to others.

I needed help with a very large shrub, as it was beginning to knock coping stones off my neighbour's wall. Not only did Chris contact me in a timely manner, but he then came and quoted for the job the next day, and within 2 days he was back and the thug of a shrub was long gone. He was very pleasant, thoroughly professional, cleaned up all the mess and gave me advice about my wall. He is a gentleman and his prices were good. It was a pleasure to meet someone who does a good job and isn't interested in "ripping off" his clientele. I would not hesitate to use Chris's services again if I needed them. Thank you



Many Thanks to Chris and his team who were helpful and informative when looking at the project and carried it out exactly as quoted keeping us updated with photos at all stages, highly recommended

Paul Spencer


Chris was 5 star, both him and his dad were friendly, committed and very professional. They had done all the checks on the tree previous to removal and once on the job he was so efficient, using all correct safety equipment and very conscious of the neighbours. He also did a very clean job at tidying with no mess. Thank you

Katie Smith


Chris gave us a competitive quote. He and his guys started the job on time to remove four large trees and crownlift nine others. All very professional throughout. Very, very tidy when left. Would definitely recommend CMS Tree Services – will not disappoint.

Castle Court


Very impressed with CMS Tree Services. Turned up on time, did a very professional job taking out a hedge around my garden and Ivy, Jasmine bushes. Stumps grinded. Tidied up after and would definitely recommend them.Very reasonably priced too. Good job done.

Sophia Moxom


I hired CMS Tree Services to carry out work to two trees next to my property that were touching the windows. This was a great decision and I will tell you why.

As we are in a conservation area permission had to be sought from the council, CMS Tree Services submitted the request on my behalf along with supporting photographic evidence taken when they came to quote.

The permission was given by the council some weeks later without any trouble and then a date was arranged with CMS Tree Services for the works to be carried out.

On the day I found Chris and his colleague to work extremely carefully going to great lengths to ensure the results were as expected - and they are!

The trees are now well away from the house giving me assurance the roots will also be kept back. The bedrooms have more light and the trees we love look great.

A lapsed privet hedge covering the garage was also heavily pruned back and the overall price was competitive with the invoice arriving promptly. I would use CMS Tree Services again and not hesitate to highly recommend them to others.

James Barber

We are really happy with your work. You left the garden very tidy after removal of 3 huge conifers and we hardly knew you were here. Thank you. We will recommend you to others and will come back to you when we figure out what further work we want doing on our other trees.

We have now extended our driveway as planned. For 18 years the tree you felled and ground the stump out prevented us from doing this and now we are really happy we have been able to widen our drive.

Thanks for a job well done

Sheila & Keith


Thank you so much for removing the conifer from our garden. I was very impressed with how you achieved that and I will not hesitate to ask you again if I need more removals in the future.

Freda Hanson


No hesitation in recommending CMS tree service... removed some conifers and ground out stumps and tidied hedge.... very very tidy job. Competitive price. Turned up on time. What more can I say... very impressed!

Bruce Webber


Thank you for the great job. Looks totally different now. We will be looking to get you back next month to take out the trees in the back garden if that’s okay.
Thanks again for the great service



Quick service, excellent communication throughout. Brilliant tidy job.

Laura Hartley


Chris and his colleague came recently to work on our overgrown and untidy hedges. They trimmed thick evergreen hedges, reduced other hedge and removed and ground stumps from a further evergreen hedge.

Their work was excellent. The hedges look beautifully neat. All waste was removed, and they were extremely tidy. Chris had to return a few weeks later to complete the job, as nesting birds were present in one area. Their pricing was also competitive.

Since my garden tidy by Chris, my father has also used him to remove a large evergreen tree, and was equally pleased with the service. No complaints at all.

John Ingham


We used CMS to remove some hedging and a rouge tree from our boundary that was causing a bit of damage to our wall. They are very pleasant to deal with and did a fantastic job.

After completing the work they left our garden looking very tidy. Would certainly recommend, especially if you want the job done right first time.

John Slater


After a long journey I came home to find the hedge at the front of my home looking neat, tidy and beautiful. A fabulous job indeed. Thank you.

Leila Neve


Very professional and tidy workers. They removed our unruly conifers and a couple of tired, old trees in very difficult conditions. To say our garden is waterlogged is an under statement. It is completely boggy with surface water flooding. They kept smiling and would not give up. Highly recommended.

Hilary Gough


Fantastic service, very friendly , professional and great value for money. Chris really knows his stuff and is very competent...highly recommended..!!!!

Nige Mcquilton


Chris runs a professional outfit and is very reliable, very conscientious and always does a top job, highly recommended.

Excellent service. Five stars.

Susan Pearson


For the work you carried out on the church yard, the work you did enhanced the area of land and lots of comments have been made by villagers how much better it looks. Thank you once again for all your help and advice.
