XL Tree Specialists

  • Plant 8 Cypress Trees

    Harry and/or Simon come for the quote or first onsite visit. They then schedule others to work on the project. This is a neutral review (at best) as the two young guys that came to work were pleasant to speak with. But - they completely filled my green bin with soil! Who does that? XL say they collect all waste generated, but they didn't. So be warned and check your bins before they leave! When I found out I texted, whatsapped and emailed them to fix the error. They collected the soil at the end of the day. My neighbour also complained to me that the guys on the day kept speeding down the road... Finally, compared to other companies, XL tend to be on the pricier side. In summary, I would not work with them again.
