We are a family business that has been established since 1998. Our aim is to provide professional tree care at competitive prices.

We offer free advice and written quotations.

We will call and advise on any tree-related matter, from a single fruit tree or hedge to the largest garden or grounds. We complete a variety of different works for businesses as well as domestics and can undertake Tree Surveys if required. 

Techniques and timing when pruning trees or trimming hedges can be critical to success - our experience and thoughtfulness will help you avoid any disasters. We deal with preservation orders from start to finish to eradicate any unnecessary time and stress for the customer and ensure that our team in the office deals with the customer personally from start to finish.  

Ray Brown runs Trim a Tree and is an expert arborist with a vast knowledge of the industry and over the past 18 years he has successfully developed the business and established an excellent reputation. Ray oversees Trim a Tree and ensures the sufficient operation of the business out in the field with ongoing training and assessments for all the Tree Surgeons and firewood team. Oliver is our fully qualified Tree Surveyor ensuring all free quotations are explained thoroughly to our customers and we pride ourselves on the ensuring the finished result is exactly what the customer wanted. 

Trim A Tree prides itself on customer care as well as quality of work. We offer recommendation schemes along with Loyalty card schemes for our firewood. Communication is the key in the industry and that is something we pride ourselves on. We offer lower rates for older people and are happy to try and match any other written quote that you may have received. 

We also offer the sale of our firewood in a variety of different bags including bulk bags, barrow bags and net bags, as well as coal, kindling and briquettes We deliver the firewood in our Hiab lorry and ensure that we can drop the bag to an area of your choice. We offer a stacking service as well. Our Loyalty Scheme that we offer for our firewood is a great scheme to be involved with as when you purchase 5 bags you get one FREE.
