Richard Hawkins Tree Services

“The Landpower team always goes above and beyond”

Hawkins Tree Services have been operating out of Sherborne for seven years; with a four-strong team specialising in arborism and fencing. The company use Landpower’s full range of services; visiting the shop for arborist equipment, the hiring and purchasing of machinery and rely on the team for servicing and repairs.

Owner, Richard Hawkins, tells us why he chose Landpower as a supplier and why he will continue to use their services:

“The tree industry is a very tight knit community. When I was looking for a company to hire a chipping machine from, Landpower were recommended to me by a number of my contacts. I heard nothing but good things and so it was an obvious choice.

“We were happy with their competitive prices, but what sets Landpower apart is the fantastic customer service – they really do go out of their way and nothing is ever a problem. I can call Amanda at any time and she will make sure that we have what we need, when we need it – even if it’s the end of the day or weekends. It’s a very personal and prompt service.

“The shop, near Templecombe in Somerset, is great – I like to be able to see things in the flesh, so having a specialist centre so close to us is ideal. There isn’t anything else like it nearby and if we are really pushed for time they have an extensive online shop.

“We initially used Landpower to hire a chipping machine, but have since purchased a machine from them, as well as chainsaws. We use the service and repairs team to make sure that our machinery is in good working order, as this is integral to our business. We also regularly purchase smaller equipment, such as boots, clothing, accessories and parts, which we can pick up from the store or are delivered straight to us.

“I would definitely recommend Landpower – they are spot on and have exceeded all expectations!”
