“Acer Tree Surgeons were friendly, professional, and went the extra mile to give a fantastic service. Not only that, but they were very competitive on price and one of the best value quotes we received. We’d fully recommend Nick and his team to anyone requiring tree work!”

“I am writing to thank you for the recent work you did for us, felling and removing the large trees
at the rear of my garden.
I was impressed at all times by the professional and responsible approach to the work, both initially
for the quote, and whilst it was being carried out. I am delighted with the difference it has made
to our property, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to others.”
Beth Fenton, Trowbridge
