We are in a privileged position with our duel trained staff who also carry PTS and Coss qualifications meaning we are ideally placed for all types of UA work. We are looking at expanding into this sector as our relationship with the primary contractors grows, this will mean our investment into training and Utility vehicles will also grow.

SGL pruned our prize copper beech in our back garden - beautiful. They were professional, helpful and cleaned up well leaving the garden spotless. Very happy and will be using them again.

A residential client

Wonderful service, highly recommended. SGL Forestry were recommended to me as efficient & trustworthy when I needed 2 trees removed from my mother’s garden. Two polite & hardworking men made short work of the two trees - one of which was HUGE! I didn’t want it all removed as I wanted the wood for my own fire, so I asked them to leave it in the garden. When I returned there were two large, neat piles of big & small branches that had been cut into manageable chunks, stacked neatly out of the way where they could season without being obstructive. More than I was expecting, very helpful. Garden looked great. A very fair price, a very professional & tidy job, & nice people too. Thank you SGL services!
