Tracy Bache from Exmouth , July 26, 2018
Have used Free Range Forestry for years and always very pleased with the work they do. Very friendly and professional tree surgeons. Would highly recommend to anyone!
Elliot Bates from SIDBURY , May 22, 2018
Paddy, Rich and team recently carried out some pruning of a London plane tree, overgrown bay tree and some privet hedge and we were delighted with their work. The experience from start to finish was top notch - a prompt response to our initial request, a quick and reasonable quote and excellent job on the day....really friendly and polite guys who did a neat job and great clear up afterwards. Would have no hesitation in recommending them. Cheers guys!
D. Waldock from Honiton , April 10, 2018

service. Highly recommended.
David Bartram from Bishopsteignton , March 15, 2018
The whole process with Free Range Forestry has been excellent from start to finish. From the initial consultation and quotation to the removal of the diseased tree and the tidy up afterwards. Everything was made easy and we were kept informed all the way. Rich, Paddy and the team worked quickly and safely and despite the awful weather, left the garden spotless. Highly recommended.
Dr Gyan Fernando from Exeter , January 15, 2018
An excellent job from Paddy and his crew. From the moment we called him to the moment he finished the job we had absolutely no hassle. Having got Council permission to prune the trees, Paddy arrived on time on the appointed day. A very good job was done and they left the garden neater than it was originally. Highly recommended.
Mrs Irene Jennings from Sidbury , January 15, 2018
It was a delight to have such a professional team to undertake the work. Would have no hesitation in highly recommending them.
Roger Hunt from Sidmouth , January 8, 2018
A very professional job. Work carried out by a friendly team who completed the job quickly
and left the site clean. Thank you.
Emily Davey from Exeter , December 20, 2017
Used these guys twice now. They do a great job and highly recommend them.
M Edwards from Honiton , November 17, 2017
Paddy & Rich carried out a long list of tree reduction, shrub pruning and hedge trimming work in my garden this autumn. I was absolutely delighted with the results - they were thorough, professional, knowledgeable, polite, tidy and competitively priced. What more could one possibly expect!
Lin Ashby from Woodbury , November 5, 2017
Again delighted with the excellent work of Paddy & the team.
Professional job done with efficiency & courtesy and the garden left immaculate .
Already booking them for next year.
S Crispin from Torquay , August 19, 2017
Quote was spot on with some other quotes but chose this company because the personnel are polite and of neat appearance.
Impressed with work done which was removal of large and out of control shrub and hard cutting back of conifers. All dealt with efficiently and left tidy.
Ian Pusey from Exmouth , May 9, 2017
One of the best laid out estimates I have seen, with an equally clear invoice at the end of the job. Free Range were excellent: a very careful, neat job with detailed preparation, including customer involvement, and a very tidy clear up at the end. Thoroughly recommended!
P. Kempson from Bovey Tracey , April 15, 2017
I can confidently recommend Free Range Forestry. The work they undertook to reduce the height of an oak and elm tree was carried out to a professional standard and the area left clean and tidy.
Sandra Porter from Clyst St Mary , March 31, 2017
Very good service from experts who were happy to tailor the job to my requirements. They worked quickly and cleared up afterwards.
Would not hesitate to recommend and use again myself.
S Hackney from Otterton , March 24, 2017
Excellent service from start to finish, from the initial quote, dealing with planning permission, & then the work completed to a very high standard & the site left clean & tidy. The team were very effficient & soon completed the work - & all with a smile! A very good.job well done & to a high professional standard. I'm happy to recommend them,

Patrick Dillon from Exeter , February 27, 2017
Very professional and skilled work by a friendly and considerate team. Fairly and competitively priced. Very highly recommended.
Robinson from Exmouth , January 16, 2017
We were very pleased with the work done by the Free Range Forestry team on our awkward garden hedge (11/01/17). The job was completed in a very efficient and tidy manner. We have already booked them again!
Karen Joy from Kenton , December 17, 2016
We were very impressed with these chaps from beginning to end. All initial enquiries were promptly answered and, after a site visit, a very reasonable quote obtained. The work involved removing a number of leylandii and the planting of 25 new trees. It was carried out quickly, efficiently and everything was left perfectly clean and tidy, even our neighbours commented on the work. We would highly recommend this friendly and professional team.
Petrie Murchison from Exeter , December 11, 2016
Everything about this job went smoothly. My initial email was responded to immediately; the garden was visited the next day; I was sent a quote for the work which was very reasonable; and once accepted given a date within a short timescale.
On the day itself I wanted to make some changes to which Paddy and Rich accommodated in every possible way.
The garden and 'side passage' which was used to access the garden were left immaculate.
A highly professional, skilled, kind and friendly pair of tree surgeons who I would highly recommend.
J Betney from Exeter , November 28, 2016
On both occasions that I have used Free Range Forestry I have been delighted with the results. Dates and times are kept to plan, the guys give good advice as to the work required and they clearly know their trees. The results have been excellent and all is left tidy. I would certainly recommend them and have done so
kim baker from Budleigh Salterton , November 25, 2016
Removed two trees, great job, tidy, professional. Thanks alot
Sandra porter from Clyst st. Mary , November 24, 2016
Excellent job. Quick, professional, knowledgeable. Helpful and accommodating. Cleared up well.
Robin Fuller from Sidmouth , September 24, 2016
We had very old apple tree which split and dropped a very large branch in strong winds. It needed removing. We couldn't be there when the team turned up. They did exactly as we had asked, removing everything and grinding out the stump. We were very pleased with the job the guys did. Apart from the obvious gap where once there was a broken apple tree, you'd hardly know they'd been. We will use them again.
Ann Deem from Ebford , September 23, 2016
Not the easiest of tasks. A very tall row of Leylandii which had been neglected for many years with a long drop to a stream on one side and poor access. Paddy and Rich did an amazing job, and paid a lot of attention to levelling the top of the hedge to get everything just right.. All debris removed and chipped for me to compost and use later. Extremely professional, knowledgeable, tidy and polite workers and a pleasure to meet. I can't recommend them highly enough.
Gill Macphail from Exeter , September 16, 2016
I recently chose Free Range Forestry to carry out some tree work in my garden because of the good reviews on Our Local Expert. I wasn't disappointed and I'll definitely use them again. Excellent service.
Amanda Wilcock from Sidmouth , September 11, 2016
Excellent! We were apprehensive, but complete garden clearance went without a hitch. The Free Range Forrestry team completed the work so efficiently and neatly, with much less noise than we'd anticipated from our experiences of other tree work carried out in the neighbourhood. I can't recommend this firm highly enough, and will certainly employ them for maintenance work to our trees in the future.
R Hanvey from Topsham, Exeter , August 16, 2016
I strongly recommend Free Range Forestry. They were very friendly and efficient and listened to our requirements and questions. They gave clear advice on what should be done to our tree, why and when. They clearly know much about trees and respect and value them and can reconcile this with the needs of homeowners. They cleared up thoroughly.
David from Exeter , July 7, 2016
Paddy and his business partner were brilliant. 60 pounds cheaper than the next quote. Turned up when they said they would. They trimmed my well over growen laurel hedge in double quick time and now it looks perfect. Well done guys
Julie Screech from Pinhoe, Exeter , June 30, 2016
They did a wonderful job. The work was excellent, they were sensitive to the trees, lovely guys, and the price was reasonable for what they did.
Karen Burns from Exeter , June 24, 2016
Another great job thank you. Very professional and reliable. Highly recommended.
John Twigg from Woodbury , April 23, 2016
What a good service performed by a friendly and efficient team. We got exactly what we asked for and once they had left we found the garden to very neat and tidy.
We will certainly use this firm again
Phil from Morchard Bishop , March 24, 2016
Paddy dealt with everything promptly, professionally & skilfully. He handled the listed building/conservation area planning application knowledgably and fast. Then did a good, neat job, even leaving the garden tidier than it had been before. And all at a fair price.
Sue Nickels from EXETER , February 27, 2016
I was most impressed by the helpful, courteous and professional manner of the Free Range Forestry staff and very pleased with the work they carried out in my garden. I had a number of trees needing trimming plus 2 to be cut down completely, and this was done to my satisfaction and all the cuttings cleared away and my garden left tidy. I would certainly recommend this business and will use it again.
Brian Mather from Lympstone , February 5, 2016
Free range forestry is a local tree surgery company. They give free quotations and arrived on the date specified at the time specified and did a wonderful job very clearly knowledgeable about the trees and give sound advice. The work was carried out carefully and the clearing up afterwards was amazing. I could not recommend them more highly.
I decided to choose them because of the recommendation and observation from our neighbour.
Graham & Sheila Gerdes from Woodbury Salterton , January 8, 2016
We were very pleased with the highly professional, hardworking and good-humoured team who did a first class job in spite of the awful weather. We would be pleased to use their services again and have no hesitation in recommending Free Range Forestry to others.
Jo Lovejoy from Woodbury, nr Exeter , November 8, 2015
Very professional, excellent service from quotation through to carrying out the work and cleaning up afterwards. Would highly recommend.
Paul Douglas from Exmouth , October 4, 2015
I needed a tree taken down which was situated in a difficult position.The service I received was prompt, and thorough. The job was undertaken efficiently and was reasonably priced.
Free Range Forestry have undertaken previous work for me and on both occasions I have received an excellent and helpful service.
Rachel born from Exeter , September 9, 2015
What a fantastic company, chose them on their previous excellent ratings and were so glad I did so. We had 9 70ft Norway spruce trees, they had them all down in a day, stumps ground out the next day and left the site cleaner then when they arrived. If you are looking to have any garden work undertaken do not look any where else, cannot rate them highly enough, great job Paddy, Rich and team, will not hesitate to use you in the future.
Iain from Exeter , September 8, 2015
An excellent company and very competent.
I can throughly recommend using them.
W Passmore from Ottery St Mary , August 15, 2015
I have used this company a number of times now and would be very reluctant to use anyone else. Their response to enquiries is faster than any others, their climbing and felling skills amazing and they are great at clearing up afterwards.
Earlier this week they excelled themselves by grinding out a massive tree stump, taking some awkward branches off two tall oak trees and delivering some very good seasoned logs and all this whilst a big storm was in progress!
Mrs Davis from Exmouth , August 14, 2015
First class work, done carefully and expertly. Coming back in Autumn to prune a very treasured silver birch.
Lindsay Barker from Exeter , July 31, 2015
Excellent professional service, highly recommended
Tim Worfolk from Topsham , July 31, 2015
Norway spruce felled and removed: lovely job - fast, efficient and tidy.
Barbara Slee from Exeter , July 27, 2015
Paddy did an excellent job pruning a huge tree and at a very competitive price. He was polite, friendly and left the garden immaculate. I would definitely use free range forestry again and can not recommend them enough.
Cristina Orchard from Exeter , June 29, 2015
Another great job removing a large spruce from our back garden thanks
Paddy and team. We've used Free Range Forestry three or four times now always happy with their work. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.
C Laird from Exeter , June 28, 2015
I have used Free Range Forestry on several occasions both for hedge cutting and trimming a protected tree.
They sorted the necessary permission needed for the tree and did an excellent job. At all times they have been very helpful with advice and with carrying out the work and have always cleared the site after them. I can highly recommend them and will use them again in the future.
Christine Collins from Ottery St Mary, Devon , June 12, 2015
We found the work of Free Range Forestry to be of the highest standard. They were punctual, fast and efficient and helpful. They left the site clean and tidy upon completion. We would not hesitate in recommending FRF and would certainly use them again.
Colin Simpson from Exeter , June 12, 2015
Free Range Forestry completed the work as agreed on time and at at a reasonable price.
I would certainly employ them in the future and would recommend them.
