The Tree People is a family run business that was set up in 1991. Over the years we have built a loyal client base thanks to our commitment to 100% customer satisfaction. We achieve this by providing professional, efficient and courteous services.

We offer a wide range of highly effective services undertaken by members of our fully trained and qualified team.

Our extensive experience and excellent knowledge in the field of tree surgery makes us a great choice for many clients. We serve Bedford, Milton Keynes, Sandy, Flitwick and The North Bedfordshire area.

We carry out 24/7 emergency work during storms to remove fallen or damaged trees.

Tree reduction, also known as crown reduction, is a tree pruning service people use to reduce the overall size of the canopy of a tree. There are a number of reasons why an individual may wish to do this, such as permitting more light to reach a property, or to stop the branches from becoming entangled in overhead cables.

Tree reduction is an environmentally friendly alternative to having the tree completely removed, and is one of the most popular services we offer.

Tree felling is the process of removing a tree by climbing and dismantling the tree. This service involves cutting the tree at specific points and using modern lowering systems such as ropes, pulley’s and bollards to bring limbs down in a safe controlled manner. Tree felling is a common practice employed by loggers and tree surgeons across the world.

The Tree People are happy to offer our effective and efficient stump grinding service that can completely destroy and remove any tree stumps found on your property. Our friendly and professional team of tree surgeons are able to undertake tree stump grinding projects of all sizes, no matter how big or small the stump is.

We are covered with a 10 Million Pounds Public Liability Insurance for your own peace of mind.

Excellent Tree Surgeons

Malcolm and his team have been pruning our trees/shrubs for over 15 years. They have removed several large trees and grinded the stumps. Some of our trees had TPO's and Malcom contacted the council on our behalf to obtain permission for work to be carried out.
They are always happy to take on any job whatever the size or however difficult 😃
They work in a very efficient manor and ensure all debris is carefully removed and the garden is left as though they were never there.
Price is always competitive. We wouldn't use another tree surgeon. Thanks

Very Satisfied Customer

Malcolm submitted a fair price for removing a tree and heavy pruning on two mature apple trees.
He and his colleague Dale turned up when agreed and did a very professional and efficient job for the quoted price. They made a point of clearing up after they finished work leaving my garden as tidy as it was before their visit. A very friendly and courteous team.
Would not hesitate in recommending them for similar work.

Great service

The Tree People provided a very prompt and efficient service in removing some trees and shrubs from my garden. Communication from the outset was good and the work was scheduled in quickly. Following this they ensured that all debris was cleared away and the garden left tidy. Great service!

Excellent and would recommend this company to family and friends with no hesitation.

Prompt, efficient, professional and reliable service. Staff approachable and responded positively to any suggestions. Quality of work was excellent and the job was finished in the quoted time. The price was reasonable for the work and time undertaken. We were well pleased with both. Clearing up was excellent especially as the daylight was fading. Malcolm said that he would come back if in the daylight more clearing up needed to be done. We could not fault anything. Every consideration was given to our needs.
