Testimonial: Having used Tree Hugger & Sons on a number of occasions to rectify tree issues, we have no hesitation to recommend them to anyone who is looking for an amazing service. What makes the service so good is not only the jargon free, and honest discussions about the issues, but the fact that they are brilliant at what they do, are considerate to the property they are working at, do the job quickly, and leave the finished job in an immaculate condition. Their work was so good at properties we manage, that I employed their services at my house to tackle a couple of willow trees, and everyone that has seen them has commented on how nice they look. Don’t bother shopping around and wasting your time, head straight for the best, and give Tree Hugger & Sons a call.

There’s really nothing to beat a British summer. A cloudless blue sky, a gentle breeze and my sun lounger in the garden. My bikini is finally getting to see the light of day, and I’m working very hard on my tan. Oh yes. I’ve waited long enough for this. And the heat-wave has come at the most perfect time. You see, I’m treating myself to a little staycation at home, away from the daily grind of work. It feels so good to be sat out here on the patio; so liberating to recline in next to nothing with my feet up, a dark, smooth and steamy coffee in my hand and a little bit of Fifty Shades on my tablet. A girl has to pamper herself, does she not? There are only a few items I need to make my holiday perfect – namely my hunks from Treehugger & Son. My bushes are due for a trim – in fact I’d love to see them nicely clipped for the remainder of the summer. A neat bush is a happy bush – I’ve always stayed true to that particular maxim. Mmm. Now that’s really got me thinking. Those boys at Treehugger & Son… working up a sweat in my garden… it’s almost too good to be true. And if I don’t get in quickly, it most likely will be. You see, these arborists are the toast of Derbyshire when it comes to residential tree work, and they really earn that reputation. They know how to leave even the trickiest of bushes trimmed to perfection – something to be really proud of and for all the neighbours to look at in wonder. The more I look around my garden, the more I realise that I could do with a little more expert assistance from the adorable Derbyshire arborists. I need to plan ahead to get my garden ready for the autumn – and by that I mean that my borders need a little work, the weeds need spraying and I think that things would look much better after some deadwooding and pruning courtesy of Drew and his team. Mmm… just thinking about all that ripe, juicy and fulsome fruit that I can enjoy once they’ve got their hands on my trees gets me really excited. In fact I won’t delay any longer. I need my boys, and I need them now. Seeing as how I have my slinky tablet to hand, I can quickly let my long fingers glide across the screen and get in touch with them via Twitter @TreeHugga. In fact, my friend Daniella has also seen how satisfied the boys leave me whenever they come over. She has a bush that needs their attention too – but she’s not on Twitter. She much prefers Facebook – but that’s ok, as they have a page there too, You can find them at www.facebook.com/TreeHuggerTreeServices - and I just know Daniella will love having them round to do their stuff. It’s so easy. It’s a good thing too, as I’d forgotten their phone number. Oh but… silly me. You see, I’m relaxing and unwinding while listening to my favourite local station, Amber Sound FM. They don’t just play good music – no. They also carry adverts for some great local firms – and that includes my dear arborists. In fact, I’ll make sure that the radio is on when they come round to trim my bushes. There’s nothing finer than watching a bunch of hunks working up a sweat to a good rhythm in the sunshine… gosh, do excuse me. I have some serious Tweeting to do… Until the next time… Love, Julie xxx http://www.tree-hugger.co.uk/blog/ What an amazing week here and the sun is shining. #JuliesDiary Part 2 is here, what do you think? http://www.tree-hugger.co.uk/julies-diary-part-2/ ulies Diary is live, read our blog here http://www.tree-hugger.co.uk/introduction/ please leave us a comment, be honest, tell us what you think #smiles Drew. p.s good luck to all entering #sbs tonight Exciting week ahead, full week of marketing, launch of new website, Julie's Diary blogg, eshots, banner campaign, front pages in local rags, drive by's, leaflet drops, New accreditation, and even a plane trailing a banner, all exciting stuff :) www.tree-hugger.co.uk ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Really exciting week here at @TreeHugga, we are sold out on our #avyoursayLIVE this Monday 8th April and the team http://www.avyoursay.biz/team.asp have a special menu for the local biz to enjoy.

MY BUSINESS TIPS

With a bucket and spade you have two options, dig a trench or build a castle. Look after your trees, give them a hug! Obtain regular feedback from your clients, use their testimonials within your marketing, on your website, social media, blogs and adverts. Go to your local radio stations, get to know the DJ\'s and interact with them through their online chat boxes to reach their entire audience but do this regular. :) Step back every day and view your business from a customers perspective, action what you see as if you where the customer.
