Anthony Martin, Tree Surgeon


Anthony is an excellent tree surgeon and has removed (or made safe) a number of trees from Greenfields. We thoroughly recommend him.

Anthony even came out one day to rescue Fintan's camera drone following a mishap (read crash) with a very tall Ash Tree as can be seen in the above photograph.
