They came to give a quote on the day and time agreed. The price was if anything a bit less than I was expecting. One of their teams was available straight away, as they had to abandon a job because the tree involved contained nesting birds, They came round and removed a tall willow quickly and without fuss, and tidied up afterwards. The two workers were pleasant and professional.

I have been using them for several years for annual garden maintenance and can highly recommend them.

Reduction of two very large to low stumps
Customer Service
Quality

From my first contact call with Collette in the office , I can only say that this company were completely professional. The job required two very large yew trees, as tall as the house, to be reduced to stumps. Room to lower the branches and trunks was at a premium and one tree overhung a porch/conservatory. The task was performed with exceptional competence and to my mind entirely safely. Having completed the job, the area was completely cleaned of any chippings etc. I had full confidence in them from the moment that they arrived and have absolutely no hesitation in stating that they would be my first contact for further work and that I would highly recommend them.

Highly recommend ACME ARB They came out to quote for work to be completed at 2 different sites. The quotes were very competitive compared to others we received. The work completed was done to a very high standard & both sites were left spotless. We had large hedges, bushes & a very large Ivy cut back & problem trees poisoned. The men that came out also offered advice about other trees & plants that I had asked about. They were also very friendly & polite.

What a brilliant company. Removed 4 silver birches and one rather large Ash tree. Friendly, courteous, and very professional. Just to watch them operate was an education.

I had a silver birch at the end of the drive that needed removing. I was mesmerised at how efficient and polite the two chaps were. They were methodical in their approach and when I came out to talk to them, they stopped work immediately and listened to what I had to say. At the end of the day they tidied up and were even going down the street 'hoovering' up any debris. Unfortunately, their grinder broke trying to grind out a very large stump in an awkward position but they soon returned to complete the job. Communication with the office was brilliant. I must say I was very impressed with the overall service from this company. You do not often get this kind of service these days. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending their services.

Acme Arb have been excellent to deal with from start to finish. We had a very large conifer in the garden which was taken down in around four hours. They took great care removing the tree so as to keep any damage to surrounding plants to an absolute minimum. They did a great job removing all the waste material - there was hardly any evidence that a large tree had been felled! Overall, a very professional and courteous service and at a very competitive price too. I would have no hesitation in using their services again and recommending to family and friends.

Great communication with Collette throughout. Queries answered quickly and politely. We had challenges with access to the back garden but Geoff visited and put our minds at rest that the job could be completed. The guys arrived on time on the agreed day and did a fantastic job of removing 3 leylandii hedges (one particularly overgrown) and cleaned up afterwards leaving no mess. And all carried out within current social distancing guidelines. Highly recommended.

From the response to the initial query for a quote through to completion of work, Acme have excelled in their professionalism and communication. Acme showed remarkable patience with working with a third party and kept us fully informed throughout. The work itself on removing two incredibly large poplar trees with exceptionally difficult access was bang on schedule and carried out with no fuss whatsoever. And the clean up! Wow!! My neighbour (who was not the third party btw!) was super pleased with the resulting benefits to her garden. Were they the cheapest quote? No. Their quote was the most honest, professionally presented and detailed quote and delivered to the penny. No hesitation in recommending or re using Acme Arb.

Employed acme over two days to heavily prune some large sycamore trees. A team of three one day and four the next. All extremely helpful, courteous yet friendly. Did exactly as specified in a very professional and expeditious way. Probably the most impressive aspect was that despite generating lots of unavoidable mess they left the site cleaner and more tidy than it was before they arrived! First time I have used this company but I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to friends. Keith Povey

I used Acme to remove a tree from outside my property. They came and checked out the tree first before providing a quote and were quick to note the problems I was having with it. They were friendly and knew what they were talking about. They were available within a week of me instructing them and turned up promptly. They were really efficient and very thorough, cleaning up and removing all mess. Everything was carried out very professionally. They were very easy to work with from start to finish. All I had to worry about was what to do with the space where the tree used to be! Many thanks. Happy to recommend.

The team turned up on time, introduced themselves and confirmed what work was to be carried out. Despite appalling weather, they had removed the tree and ground down the stump by mid-afternoon, clearing up as they went. A great result - thank you to everyone at Acme Arb.

A team of three took down a large London Plane tree that had been planted far too close to our house. They managed to extricate the many telephone wires from the upper branches without any damage and brought the whole thing down within hours. They cleared all the debris and sawdust from my and my neighbours' properties, leaving just a stump cut off at ground level. Highly recommended.
