GraftinGardeners are serious about protecting the environment and always try their best to have as little impact as possible, on surrounding areas, wildlife and their habitats, while carrying out our works.
We think it’s important to minimise disturbance on habitats and keeping the wildlife populations balanced, by creating mulch or log piles. Our chainsaw equipment uses biodegradable oil, which is a step towards a cleaner environment.
We always practice the best pruning procedures by following the guidelines set out in the British Standards (BS 3998), ensuring trees are kept in good health and appearance.
Environmental Considerations and Habitats
There are laws in place for the protection of nesting birds/eggs and bats. We make sure there are no birds nesting in trees or hedges, before we prune or remove them. We sometimes use traditional sawing methods with hand tools, reducing noise pollution.
GraftinGardeners always abide to the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and follows the guidelines in the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (CRoW).
How we Process Waste
As part of our environmental policy, nearly all of our green waste is recycled. The wood chippings/mulch are used in allotments and gardens, as well as being dumped recycling centres. The logs are either sent to recycling centres or kept, and split to make firewood.
If appropriate for the customer (in woody areas), we will leave a practical amount of waste onsite, for use in mulch or log piles. This is one way we encourage wildlife and reduce the impact we leave on the area.
Waste Disposal and Carriers Licensed
All team members are fully licensed to carry and dispose of all green waste material. You can find our certificates below.
Sometime in the near future, we hope to convert all of our trucks, chippers and equipment, to run on bio-diesel fuel. We also aim to plant a new tree for every one taken down, or at least 100 per year.

Very happy to recommend these guys. They cut our tree back 5 years ago and I had no hesitation digging out the invoice and calling them again.

Great professional team. They came to reduce a pear tree in the garden and did a very good job. They knew what to cut or not cut for the tree to recover from the trauma of the reduction.
The guys at GraftinGardeners came to our property to remove some ivy that had grown up the side of our house and... partially over the roof over the course of a few years. They were punctual and polite did a really good job at getting all of the ivy removed. We would use them again for any other jobs we might have!read more

I needed an emergency tree removal ( next day service) . Graftin Gardeners provided an excellent service and the three... has been removed within few hours. What is equally important is that they have charged me a standard market rate for the service. I have called few other companies and they all tried to charge much more ( special rates, emergency rates etc). Great service and honest people. Thank youread more

I was truly bowled over by their work. I cannot thank them enough for saving my large, ancient and much-loved cooking... apple tree which had uprooted and fallen. The fact they then spent much time clearing up all the considerable foliage and leaves so meticulously was the icing on the cake. Not only that, incredibly nice and friendly people too. Five stars all the way!read more

This is the third year we've used GraftinGardeners and they're by far the best tree surgeons we've employed.

We were delighted with the work carried out by the guys from Graftingardeners. The tree at the front is pruned and... beautifully shaped and the conifers look so much better now they have been reduced. They worked really hard on a drizzly morning and provided an excellent service. Thank you!read more

We were really impressed with Graftin Gardeners. They were friendly, professional and efficient. They were the only... tree surgeons we contacted who actually came by to assess our front garden and provide an accurate quote. They took the time to explain areas of concern which was really useful. We booked them in to do our front garden the next week and they got it all done in only two hours. We were really pleased with the results (see photos). We'd definitely recommend them and will use them again.read more
