Peter Morley from Taunton , November 7, 2018
Storm Callum blew one of our trees on to our neighbours annexe which didn’t please him too much. I contacted Sean that evening and he turned up at 8.00 am the next morning and had the problem sorted in short time. Excellent response. Excellent service. Excellent professional job. Thank you very much.
Jeannie from Honiton , August 1, 2018
The standard of work was first class. It was a pleasure to have such dedicated and respectful young men arrive each morning with smiles on their faces, clearly focused on getting the job done. At times, the heat was extreme but that didn't deter them from doing an excellent job. I have no hesitation in recommending them for any fencing project.
David Miller from West Hill , March 21, 2018
Four words:- professional good natured experts!
Sue Fox from Axmouth , March 2, 2018
Very pleased with work done to reduce the height of conifers. Very tidy workers and were very careful with not treading on plants! Left site clean and tidy.
Fiona Turner from Woodbury |Salterton , January 11, 2018
I can highly recommend Shaun and his team. Efficient, polite, skilled and hard working. They get the job done. Properly.
A Clarke from Sidmouth , December 2, 2017
Overall, I can't speak highly enough about the service provided by Sean and his team. Excellent quality work, with nothing being too much trouble. Very safety conscious in the approach to the work and safe-guarding the property and public highway. Extremely friendly and polite, with absolutely no mess. Back office support was also excellent and responsive.
D. Yard from Honiton , October 24, 2017
Great team.
Very high standard for tree work and ground work.
Highly recommended
Paul Pendray from OTTERY ST. MARY , September 20, 2017
Excellent service and a great job done. Extremely tidy work. No mess at all. I would definitely recommend Tip Top trees. 5 stars!
Wendy Bishop from Honiton , September 13, 2017
Tip Top Trees provided an excellent service to my parents over many years as they were unable to maintain their own garden. Lawn cutting, pollarding and pruning were carried out to a high standard. Sean also replaced a side gate to the property. I would certainly recommend Tip Top Trees.
Mr Thomas from Honiton , September 4, 2017
I was very pleased with the service from Tip Top Trees. From the initial survey, application on our behalf to the council and the actual works carried out.

I would not hesitate to use them again in the future or recommend them to others.
A D Hughes from Honiton , July 30, 2017
They arrived on time, completed the work expertly, were friendly and left the site clean and tidy on completion
Graham Wathall from Sidmouth , July 25, 2017
When we moved in to our older bungalow in January the garden had been sorely neglected so decided to unleash the Tip Top Team and what a difference!
Twenty years of neglect cannot be rectified in a few weeks but now it does look like a garden! Tip Top are efficient, personable and very tidy and I would, based on my own experience, have no hesitation in recommending them.
P Blenkin from Sidmouth , June 13, 2017
Sean and the team did a good job of reducing the height of some bay trees and managed to satisfy 3 disparate parties.
Graham Wathall from Sidmouth , May 6, 2017
Just excellent service and very nice people. Sean and his team made a fabulous job of cutting back a huge Laurel hedge that had been badly maintained for many years. We will get Sean to help us again soon.
Sheila Budd from Honiton , April 23, 2017
A knowledgeable and experienced tree surgeon, Sean managed an excellent team of guys who fulfilled all promised with expert competence. We are pleased with the changes they achieved in just two days with garden trees and shrubs which satisfied all our wishes. Such an improved. Many thanks for your care and thoroughness, especially with the roots removal.
Beale from Honiton , February 10, 2017
Mr Kelly was appointed yesterday to prune apple and holly trees. He was excellent throughout. Turned up on time and got started straight away. Vehicles and equipment was clean and well maintained. He and his assistant Luke worked quickly and efficiently and were cheerful even though it was a very cold day. Every scrap of debris was removed including some other bits that I had cut earlier. A thoroughly professional job from start to finish and I will be having them again.
Judith Farrimond-Sheddon from Colyton , January 16, 2017
I would recommend Tip Top Trees to anyone and if I ever require the services of a tree surgeon again I would definitely use Tip Top Trees. Shaun came to assess the 2 trees we needed taking down, was very knowledgeable and helpful and provided us with a written quotation for the work. On the day of the job Shaun and his team arrived promptly, worked efficiently, all the while remaining cheerful and friendly and putting up with our mad border collie trying to entice them to throw his ball! At the end of the day, job done they left our garden and drive tidier than when they arrived...couldn't recommend them highly enough.
Steve Jackson from Honiton , December 15, 2016
A competitive quote for work just completed to high standard of satisfaction.
Other points:
Maintaining a dialogue with as to progress and on-going satisfaction.
Site was left clean and tidy,
Big smiles even when it poured with rain

Well done Sean, Brian & Luke.

I am very happy to recommend you
Matthew Wright from Seaton , November 4, 2016
Excellent - highly recommended. I had a large oak tree lowered at mum's house. The quote struck me as fair - I did not seek other quotes as Sean inspired confidence from the start. He has great pride in his work; it was clear that the job would be done well and with the welfare and appearance of the tree fully considered. Tip Top were able to fit the timing to suit me (I had to travel to mum's to be there at the time). The job was completed expertly - indeed exactly as Sean had explained when quoting. Thank you!
R & C Bacon from Honiton , October 18, 2016
Sean and his men are a real team, consequently they work fast and efficiently. Their skill is impressive and Sean's quick comprehension of the problems combine to make an outstanding group of professionals. Our large, lightening struck tree, growing on a boundary near a livestock yard and a listed building was not a challenge for them and at the end of the day no one would have guessed such a tree had just been taken down. Fast, clean, professional, we would strongly recommend Tip Top Trees.
Bruce Donnelly from Sidmouth , April 5, 2016
Tip top trees have completed a variety of different works on our property. They always arrived on time, and the jobs were completed on time and as advertised. The site was always left clean and tidy at the end of the job.

I strongly recommend Sean and his team for any projects in your garden etc.

We will definitely use them again.
Vanessa Godfrey from Honiton , November 22, 2015
Another excellent job - year after year, by Tip Top Trees on my large holly tree that grows in a confined site in a residential area.

A tree that could easily become a nuisance in its location but with Tip Top Trees careful trimming and shaping instead provides protection from the weather and shelter and food for a variety of birds.

Kirsty scully from Honiton , October 5, 2015
Would highly recommend Sean and his team - professional, well mannered and extremely tidy. Fair price for excellent work.
Nick Gardner from Newton Poppleford, Sidmouth , May 26, 2015
Excellent work again from Sean and Co. Cleared many old, dead and gale damaged willow trees. A tidy, quick and professional job. Highly recommended. I now have a view of the Devonshire hills!
John HIcks from Honiton , April 10, 2015
The job Shaun Kelly, ably assisted by Luke & Will, has completed for me today is to remove an existing lawn and replace with layers of hardcore/chippings. Good start by turning up on the promised day and then doing the job as agreed in a very competent manner, always cheerful and even leaving the place tidier than before ! One soon learns that keeping a supply of tea/coffee on tap is the secret, plus the occasional treat of doughnuts (but do ignore their pleas for bacon sandwiches ....... )
Would recommend to anyone for landscaping and tree work.
Beryl Archer from Honiton , March 21, 2015
Delighted with the helpful service I received. Clean, tidy hardworking and efficient. Thank you.
Stephen Mallon from Honiton , March 15, 2015
Tip Top Trees came this week to tend to our overgrown apple Trees and Holly. We were very pleased with their professional service. They were prompt, polite, efficient and left no mess behind.
I would highly recommend Tip Top Trees to anyone who needs tree work.
Rating 10 out of 10
Christine Mills from Kilmington , March 2, 2015
They were polite, offered valuable advice, were efficient, tidy, very reasonably priced and the results of their work were very pleasing. Highly recommended.
Russ Connors from Honiton , December 29, 2014
Fast, efficient and friendly.
John Bennett from Colyford, Colyton , December 6, 2014
Sean Kelly trading as Tip Top Trees prepared and submitted an application to EDDC for tree works to eleven trees covered by preservation orders. Following approval, he supervised the works which were carried out fully in accordance with the description of works covered in the application. He liaised with all effected neighbours for access as necessary for the works, which were carried out with the minimum of disruption or inconvenience. The end result was extremely pleasing as the trees are on prominent view throughout the village. Altogether a most satisfactory outcome.
Vanessa Godfrey from Honiton , October 21, 2014
A TipTop Job from Tip Top Trees. Mr Kelly has the ability to 'See' how a tree should look in its setting. This enables him and his efficient workmates to change a scruffy tree into an elegant addition to the garden. Unlike many workers he always leaves the site in a tidy condition. V.Godfrey
Sebastian & Sofia from Sidmouth , October 20, 2014
This cheerful, friendly and knowledgeable company have made two installations in our garden, both of a very high standard and finish. We have no hesitation in recommending Tip Top Trees.
Pete and Kay Bishop from Seaton , September 14, 2014
This company undertook extensive tree and shrub reduction and pruning in our garden last week. We were very impressed at the care they took, their knowledge, friendliness and the very tidy condition they left the garden in on completion. We would recommend them to anyone looking for professional tree and garden services.
angela kulukundis from Seaton , August 19, 2014
Immaculate service. I am especially impressed that they tidy up and take all debris away
Camilla Todd from Exmouth , July 21, 2014
Sadly (due to our own circumstances) we weren't able to go beyond the quote stage, but Tip Top were professional and friendly throughout. They responded fast, worked late hours to get a comprehensive quote together in a hurry, and were clearly enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
Ken manley from Sidmouth , June 6, 2014
John from Sidmouth from Sidmouth , April 14, 2014
Tip Top Trees recently pruned several large trees and removed tree stumps for us. They provided an excellent service, highly professional with good advice throughout. I would certainly recommend them for all tree work. In addition, they are going to rebuild a garden hut for us and do other garden works. A good company.
John Brewitt from Honiton Devon , December 19, 2013
Tip Top Trees & General Gardening Services are as the name imply's absolutely TIP TOP in all aspects of the work they carry out. They have just supplied and erected 11 panels of fencing and all the necessary posts boards and so forth to do the work to our complete satisfaction. This was a difficult project due to a hedge which could not be moved. We have no hesitation in recommending Tip Top.
Janet Stansfield from Axmouth , September 25, 2013
We have employed Tip Top Trees twice in the past 12 months to clear the overgrown garden and perimeter of our new build plot in Axmouth. Sean and his team completed both jobs with enthusiasm and professionalism and with every regard for safety for both his team and users of the nearby road. Sean's arboreal knowledge was very reassuring and we will continue to use Tip Top Trees for any future tree maintenance work.
Tony & Wendy from Honiton , July 2, 2012
We had a dark, water-logged area at the bottom of our sloping garden. Sean and the team have transformed this into a delightful decked suntrap which has become a focal point of the garden. They have also replaced 65ft of fencing, which did present some problems, but their expertise and knowledge overcame these to give us an excellent finished job. They are a pleasure to have on site, being punctual, tidy and excellent workers using the best quality materials in an extremely professional manner. We would certainly recommend them.
G+J C from Higher Metcombe , April 5, 2011
For removing branches from a tree. Tip Top Trees were knowledgeable, experienced, careful, and thoroughly professional, and offered useful suggestions to deal with a protected tree. The work was carried out efficiently and the site was kept clean at all times. They were all very personable and I will definitely use them again for other garden work.
johnf from budleigh , December 13, 2010
Just had two large trees trimmed and pollarded. A very well executed and professional job by Sean and his team. Came on the day arranged, on time and did the work for the quoted price. I will use them again. Very happy to recommend the company
Dianne P, Feniton , September 9, 2009
I have had several jobs done over the past 8/9 yrs, trees removed, topped, managed also a lawn layed and fencing work done. The quality of the work is high and professionaly carried out, an excellent standard of work.
