Gristwood and Toms is a privately owned, full service arboricultural company. Quite simply, if it’s anything to do with trees from pruning & felling to planning applications & tree safety reports – we can handle it.
With a proud 40+ years heritage (and because people really like working with us) we have grown into one of the largest tree contractors in the UK. We cover most of England from 8 regional depots dotted across the country and directly employ over 175 staff, from Apprentices to Registered Consultants.
Our existing customers like the ‘one-stop-shop’ approach for everything tree related, (we keep things simple). They trust us – we’re straight talking and we ‘do the right thing’ and they value the financial savings and long-term value we help generate.
