Cannot believe the amazing job Craig, Josh and their team did on our enormously challenging job this week. Craig hired a huge Crane and negotiated a very tight driveway to pluck the tree out in pieces, with great skill and effort - leaving our garden and infrastructure intact. Thank you so much to all involved for your professionalism, effort and skill. Highly recommend!!
