Friends of Carlisle Park in Richmond

The Friends have been seeking ways to enhance the tree stock in Carlisle Park and thanks to the kindness of Gristwood and Toms [the Arboricultural Specialists contracted by the London Borough of Richmond] we have been given a number of Silver Birch Trees to complete a Birch grove within Carlisle Park. Although there are some further costs that we are seeking help for, this is a substantial gift to park goers and users for which we are exceptionally grateful.

Thank you Gristwood and Toms!

Private Resident – Mr and Mrs Merriman

We have used Gristwood and Toms over a number of years and have received excellent service.  The staff are very professional and have an empathetic  and careful approach to the environment when carrying out assessments and work.  In particular, we have had two occasions where the work has been very difficult; Read More

Please pass on my thanks and appreciation to the team that carried out the tree work at Pennington earlier this week. The tenant contacted me today to say thank you as he is really happy regarding the outcome of the work.

Private Resident, Birmingham – Mr Maher

I have just spoken with someone from Gristwood and Toms about my sick tree – a flowering cherry.  Thank you so much for your most helpful response.  Your patience and knowledge is very much appreciated.

Private Resident, Nottingham – Mr Ainley

I would like to pass on my praise regarding the thoughtfulness and good manners of the Gristwood and Toms team.  I know they have to fit in around parked vehicles etc but the care and consideration that they show whilst carrying out their work is worthy of comment.

English Heritage – London and West Midlands Landscape Manager

Gristwood and Toms did a brilliant job yesterday.  It was very tricky because of the position of the Poplar, plus the complication of an adjacent listed tree, but they felled it to precisely the right position.  All was finsihed in two and a half hours, with clearing done to a very high standard.

I witnessed a Gristwood and Toms team doing a tree felling in Woodside Avenue in Chislehurst, Kent.  I have to say that they were very professional, swift, efficient and extremely tidy. Great job well done.

Private Resident, Southsea – Miss Hanley

Thank you for the amazing difference the tree surgery has made to Marine Court.  Instead of being dull and gloomy, it is now so bright and light.  It’s been wonderful to see the Isle of Wight clearly, it has been obscured for about 12 years!  I can’t say thank you enough!

Metropolitan Police

Thanks to Callum and Michael who came out to attend to a huge old tree which had fallen and taken out several cars in the process, blocking the road totally.  They worked tirelessly to remove the tree, several residents commented on how hard they were working. Read More

Squirrels Nursery and Ludwick Nursery School

A big thank you from all the children at Squirrels Nursery and Ludwick Nursery School for your kindness and helpfulness when delivering the tree to our garden.  Kit and Mick went above and beyond our expectations.

Alexandra Infant School, Beckenham

Thank you so much for all the logs and wood chip you brought to our school.  We are really excited about using them in our new garden.  We hope you will visit us again if you have any more logs for us to play with.

Private Resident, Hertfordshire – Mr Birdsall

Your team took real care pruning our trees. They spent considerable time standing back looking at the trees and and undertaking a final prune to ‘get them just right.’ We will be recommending Gristwood and Toms to everyone we know.
