John Baker, from Somerset firm Treecare Specialists, has been an arborist and tree surgeon for the last 30 or so years, and now also passes on his extensive knowledge through teaching at a local college. So it’s fair to say that he knows a thing or two about trees, and more precisely the best equipment needed to keep them in tip top condition. When he lost all his equipment to a fire at his workshop, he turned to fellow Somerset firm Landpower to restock a lot of his arborist equipment and has not looked back since.
John tells us why he rates Landpower over and above other dealers of arboricultural equipment:
“I first came across Landpower when visiting an arboricultural show four or five years ago and couldn’t believe my luck when it turned out they were practically on my doorstep. My workshop had burned down following a fire at a nearby farm, so had to replace nearly all my equipment. It was great the Amanda could supply most of the equipment I needed, from ropes and harnesses to chainsaw files and hand saws.
Since then I have been very impressed with the prompt and reliable service Amanda Tribe offers. Whatever I need, all I have to do is give Amanda a call and she will let me know how long it will take to be ordered and within a day or two it’s there for me to come and pick up.
I have used Landpower to service my Timberwolf chipper too, and no matter when you call they can always squeeze you in so that you don’t have to let down your clients. And if ever I have a query about the account, Amanda will quickly sort the matter out without undue fuss.
I’ve been let down by other dealers saying they stock an item on their website and then when it comes to making an order it is either not available or it is going to take a further few days or sometimes even weeks before it is actually in stock. Without fail, you can rely on Landpower to deliver on what you need, when you need it. I have recommended them to other tree companies as a professional service at a fair price. I also enjoy the fact they are based in Yenston and I like supporting other local businesses.”
