Previous Happy Customers Said:

“We rang many tree surgeons in the Bolton area and only Elm House Tree Services got back in touch, so we took a bit of a gamble. However well worth it. Wish we’d used them years ago. They arrived on site at 7.30am and got on with the job (making a lovely neat job of a laurel hedge, thinning a tree of overgrown wisteria (by hand at height) and general cutting back. The garden was left spotlessly clean and tidy. Highly recommended. Friendly and polite. Will be having them back for sure.” Richard & Jo Catterall (TrustPilot)

If you choose to get in contact with us we will need to quote for your job as we need to look at how big the job is to prune, grind or remove.  We have to look at things like where the hedge or tree is and look to see if there are any buildings around that may cause problems in gaining access, or other plants that are nearby which we will have to protect in the process of doing the job.  We will also assess how easily our equipment will be able to gain access to the site – we generally look at things such as thin alleyways, walls in the way and any other issues that could be an issue getting in and out of the job.
