“The whole road around where I live in Dublin has been admiring the lovely professional job Fintan Fawsitt and his team have done on the historic Tilia tree in our front garden. Older than the house, which is mid 19th century, this large-leaved flowering lime had grown so tall its head seemed to touch the sky. During the first serious autumn storm this year, a vicious gust of wind brought down one of its largest boughs, which covered the entire public footpath. A fortnight later, a second big bough broke off, sailed up in the air and blew sideways, to land in the neighbouring garden, also filling it completely. In neither case was damage done to people or property but something had to be done.
When Fintan came to assess the job, I realised from the sensitive way he talked about the tree that my ancient Tilia was in safe, skilled and respectful hands. It was not going to end up looking like a scalded hedgehog when new growth started, as many of the butchered and beheaded trees around here already do from bad pruning jobs. Instead, it once again has poise and elegance and a fine balance. Removing a thorny rambling rose called ‘Belvedere’, which had climbed 25ft or more into the tree’s canopy and swayed alarmingly in high winds, was not a problem to them. He also gave a graceful new shape to our old London plane tree, whose branches were sweeping down too low over the public footpath.
Fintan Fawsitt’s expertise was awesome. When he was working to reduce the height of the tree, he moved fearlessly among top boughs so that it seemed he was skywalking, every bit as lithe and graceful as a warrior in Ang Lee’s marvellous film, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Only this was in real time and much more nerve-racking to watch. Back on firm ground, he had us stand back and take a good look, as the painter does a canvas and the sculptor a block of stone. The garden is now filled with light instead of foreboding.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Fintan Fawsitt and his team of eco warriors. They are all gentlemen and completely reliable. Skilled workers all, I was impressed by how super-careful they were of other garden plants, the opposite of big booted builders who simply do not see plants, no matter how many times you point them out. Finally, they left us a neat pile of fresh logs, ready for storing and drying. Thank you very much for doing such a great job.”

“Fintan and his crew were so easy to have around. They came. Did the job without any fuss. And tidied up after themselves! The tree in question was a big Magna Carpa and awkwardly sited at the corner of a small garden, just inside the boundary, and both households were involved. I was concerned at times when I saw them swinging from what looked like thin branches but realised safety was their no.1 principal. Both households were really pleased with the job and now enjoy looking at the sky.”Roisin Hutchins – Shankhill
“We have been using Fintan and his team for the last 7 years and they always do a great job on our trees. They are very professional and I was glad to see that they are equally safety conscious. They left the area in which they were working in excellent condition”
Paul O Sullivan- Foxrock
“The garden and neighbours garden was left cleaner than when the job started. Really professional crew and job done on two out of control sycamore trees. Tricky job with a neighbours glass house and shed directly under trees. Can’t recommend the guys enough.”
Brian Minogue – Killester
“Fintan arrived promptly, did everything he quoted for, and left with job well done.
I have no hesitation in recommending him to other people.
I had a huge lime tree to be chopped down and wood managed for our wood burning stove. His quotation was competitive.”
Mary Gardiner – Delgany
“I had the pleasure of using treeworks today to remove some pine trees out my back. They were in and out in no time… My garden is cleaner now then it was before they started… So professional, lovely lads. Highly recommend them.”
Michelle Rice – Dundrum
“Fintan did a fabulous job and were so clean and tidy. I didn’t recognise my garden when they had finished. Treeworks are an amazing Company. Called out to give a quote yesterday and arrived to do the job the following morning. I would highly recommend this company. So professional and called when they said they would. Will definitely be using their services again.”
Jenny Jones – Blackrock
“The guys did an excellent job. A very professional, friendly and helpful crew. We got a huge tree removed from my back garden by Fintan. I have a mid terrace house in D7 and the tree was close to the house, shed and my neighbours too. Also at a reasonable price.(having priced around ).I would highly recommend treeworks.”

It’s great to see the light of day again thanks to Fintan and his band of merry men.
They worked well as a team with great enthusiasm , operated in a very safe manner and were chain-saw lightning.
Fintan and his team were brought in to inspect the threat of Armillaria mellea [honey-fungus],to remove a 40 ft. dying cypress, to prune diseased and damaged apple trees , to remove an overgrown 30 ft. sycamore and to top and prune very overgrown Leylandii.
They carried out all this work in a very professional, safe way.
The cuttings were shredded and the large tree trunks were cut up into logs and stored and stacked in a dry area.
It was all well worth getting done.
The garden was left spic and span.
A big thanks to all.
