"Michael and his team have been looking after the trees in our garden, fields and woodland for many years – but last week’s work was the biggest challenge so far. A magnificent Cupressus macrocarpa, some 20 metres or more high, four metres around its base, overlooking ponds and close to the house, was showing perilous signs of decay. Michael, Ben and Simon set to and piece by piece brought it down with no damage at all to the species rhododendrons below it, let alone to the buildings and ponds. The skill and expertise they showed (as well as the magnificent woodstack of split timber for our wood-burning stove) almost compensated for the loss of a much-loved tree. And though it may seem a small thing, each evening the site was completely tidied up with no restrictions in access for us, or mess to be trailed into the house. As ever, a truly professional job."

"Thanks Michael for yet another brilliant job in artistically reducing the crown of our largest oak tree. Your skills at cutting back to allow a new attractive tree shape to emerge are second to none.

All your work is carried out efficiently, on time, and with our garden left neat and tidy. We will continue to strongly recommend you and your team to any of our friends who need tree work done."

Judy and Roy Richardson


"Michael Salvage has been looking after our trees, shrubs and hedges for many years. During this time Michael has worked on various properties we have owned or been involved with. All of which have had various and different requirements and challenges to overcome, from complete tree & stump removal to heavy pruning and hedge cutting, to coppicing, pollarding and topping. No job has been too big (or too small for that matter), for Michael to overcome.

Michael uses the very best quality equipment, which is always extremely well maintained and working practises, I believe, are second to none in terms of experience, ability, and most importantly, safety. Specifically the safety of himself and his team coupled with that of his clients and their property.

Michael and his team are courteous, hard working, very efficient and extremely skilled in their work. Simply put, I would not trust my garden, property and Tree Surgery to anyone else."

"We have used the services of Michael Salvage for over 20 years to look after the many hundreds of trees on our East Sussex Park Home Estate.

I can thoroughly recommend his work to anyone in need of a professional tree surgeon."
