I have been extremely impressed by the standard of work and service by Greater Manchester TreeStation. Their willingness to meet my access & time constraints and their professional advice has been invaluable since we began working together in 2010. They have been flexible and accommodating around access restrictions and changes to delivery methods as the building works were completed. Fuel has been high quality, competitively priced, and delivered on demand with no delays or issues. Greater Manchester TreeStation always exercised great care in carrying out deliveries, both in relation to the biomass stores, and more importantly, to staff and pupils using the site. I have no problem in recommending the TreeStation to others.
Firewood (logs and kindling)
We regularly use Treestation now for firewood. Prompt free delivery, great wood competitively priced which is stacked for us and great service generally. We would recommend you to anyone. We have shares in your company anyway as you work in a sustainable way with a strong commitment to your local community and to the environment. A really interesting company. Thank you!
I’ve been ordering logs and kindling from TreeStation for a few years now. The quality and price are good, as are the eco credentials, so I keep coming back. What makes a big difference though is the helpful and friendly customer service from Hannah and her team. I’m a happy customer.
I am really pleased with the handmade log shed, it looks good in its final position – thankyou to the team.
Thanks for sorting my delivery, arrived nice and early on delivery morning. Thanks a lot for the excellent service!
Thanks for the firewood – very pleased with the service and delivery!
Thanks for the firewood delivery today. Very happy with the logs and grateful for the good service.
I can really recommend the TreeStation. I have been buying firewood from them for several years and am very happy with the service and the price. The TreeStation have a strong environmental ethos and when I buy wood from them or have treework done I can be certain that I am supporting a responsible and green business.
After having our wood burner installed we had difficulty finding good quality dry wood. We were given the details of TreeStation by a local installer about 3 years ago and have used Phil and his team ever since. I have found them to be reliable, easy to deal with and competitively priced. I would recommend them.
We had two wood burning stoves installed in 2012 and we have been using firewood supplied by Manchester TreeStation throughout the colder months ever since. We have had a choice of well seasoned and dry hard and soft woods both of which have burned very well, and prices are very competitive for both. Also, I feel it is a real bonus to do business with an ethical supplier with such a strong commitment to its community and with genuine care for the environment. To anyone looking for a regular firewood supplier in Manchester I would definitely recommend you try TreeStation, but also find out a little bit about what makes them tick.
I’ve been very pleased with the quality of your fuel over the past couple of years. Finding a reliable supplier was difficult at first, as some suppliers sent wood of uneven quality, but yours has been of excellent quality, reasonably priced and delivered on time. I look forward to my next delivery.
We are a small business based in Macclesfield specialising in handmade one off pieces of furniture. We also produce a range of cheese boards, wine racks and bowls. We strive to use the best timber we possible can. This is where Tree Station comes in! They always seem to everything I could ever want and more (and I often come away with more than I went to get!) The range of planked rough sawn wood is brilliant. Traceability of our wood is also very important. How many places can you go to and find out exactly where the tree grew and was felled and for what reason? At less than 18 miles away for us it is great to use such a fantastic knowledgeable local supplier. I will be using Tree Station for many years to come!
The TreeStation provides me with a lot of my timber for projects. They have a fantastic selection of hard and softwoods, and expertise to back it up. They help me to keep my environmental footprint small by buying local and avoiding importing.
I first spotted Treestation from the train and thought: what a great woodyard! Soon I was involved and I have bought well-seasoned local ash, elm, beech and sycamore for my furniture designs. I’m pleased to be using characterful timber that otherwise might go to waste – it fits my design philosophy of getting more from a tree in a sustainable way, minimising transport and fossil fuel use.
The Shake a Hula company makes hula hoops from natural materials at events and festivals. We use the TreeStation coppice wood to build our hoops: we have been able to discuss our requirements and we were supplied on time every time, which is critical for our events. We also bought kilned timber to build our festival tent structure and our steam box, which we were able to pick to our precise specifications. If you want something unusual rather than ‘off the shelf’ then the TreeStation is the place!
We are an event and festival company delivering wood related creative workshops to schools, community groups and festivals. To cover the wide variety of activities we offer to our clients, we use kiln dried wood, coppice wood, green wood, air dried wood, planked timber, and timber in the round supplied by the TreeStation. Nowhere else have we found all of this from one local sustainable source. We are very happy with the quality of the TreeStation’s products as well as their excellent customer service and flexibility.
We have been working with the TreeStation/Ecos since 2005, and as our needs have grown so too have the quality of service we are offered. We mainly make hard wood chopping boards, and the designs are very specific, and require a particular quality of wood, the TreeStation offers us a unique service allowing us to dictate the milling of the wood to our requirements. We have seen huge advances in sales over the past few years, and this has affected the quantity of the wood we need, TreeStation has met that demand with what appears to be no effort. We have just secured a contract with John Lewis, and again the changes in our requirements have been met with no resistance. Alongside our boards we create work in a vast variety of commissions, from yurts, to raised beds and decks, and to hand crafted cafe furniture and garden benches. Every time TreeStation has worked alongside us, and provided a bespoke timber preparation process/service allowing us to create the style and individual work we produce. We will continue to use the TreeStation, and advise anyone working in the wood industry to try them.
Mantree Designs makes bespoke and one off items of hard wood furniture, only made with locally grown sustainable timber, and influenced by the ideals of Japanese design and making. I have worked with Phil for over 10 years, and the product and service I receive is second to none, nowhere else can I select my boards so specifically, allowing me to get the true potential from each piece of wood, knowing that all my wood is from the local area, and even down to the specific location of the tree, has become essential to the way I operate and interact with my material, and indeed with my customers.
I design and make individual items of furniture in Chorlton. With thirty years experience in woodworking I have encountered a range of timbers with varying quality and the timber provided by TreeStation has a particular richness, beauty and individuality that is not matched by large scale producers. Given the choice and availability I would source all of my timber from Phil at the TreeStation. My products are supplied almost exclusively to local customers, which is an important principle for my business, alongside environmental sustainability. In my opinion timber which is grown and processed locally surpasses any of the current industry standards (FSC etc). For these reasons it is important that the materials I use are sourced locally and sustainably, and the TreeStation is an ideal supplier.
Thanks for providing the good quality wood, it is a pleasure to work with nice materials and deal with knowledgeable people who share my passion for trees and their qualities. I’ll be back to see you soon.
The TreeStation have provided us with loads of gorgeous woodchip for our Learning & Demonstration Garden. The landscaping chip supplied has been excellent quality, delivered extremely efficiently and has made a real positive difference to the look and feel of our garden. We look forward to continuing to work with the TreeStation going forward.

Fantastic job pruning overgrown tree in our garden – just as I’d asked for, very professional, arrived on time, very neat job and took everything away.
Very professional service, from the initial contact to the actual removal of a rather large conifer tree. The men were clean, tidy and extremely quick.
The job was completed to a high standard and the tree surgeons were very courteous. The garden was left neat and tidy.
Just want to say thank you for all the hard work the two tree station guys have done in our garden. They worked so hard all day, they were polite and friendly and their knowledge and information of trees was amazing. They worked with passion and precision and with a true love for insect and wildlife. Absolutely brilliant day with these guys, can’t praise them high enough would recommend them to everyone with a garden! Thank you so much.
I’d like to thank the guys again for a swift and very professional job. I’d definitely recommend you.
Thanks to you and your team for doing the work so promptly.
I would like to reiterate how impressed I was with your services and the professionalism of all your team.
Moved to a new house in the garden was a huge Willow tree needing some TLC. I called TreeStation and Paul arrived to offer his advice. Once the price was agreed, the team arrived pollarded the tree, cut down another one that was dying and removed the remains of an Apple tree. The work was efficient, courteous and was done with minimum disruption. The added bonus of the local community and ethical status of TreeStation means we have no hesitation in recommending them.
Thanks to your team for doing such a lovely job.
I’m really pleased with the work – thought your guys did such a good job.
We were really pleased with the excellent service we received from TreeStation. Paul came to review our vastly overgrown garden bushes the day after we asked for a quotation and we received a reasonable quote for the work the following day. Bill & Danny arrived on time the next day and completed the work by late afternoon, leaving us with a transformed and tidy back garden – both were professional and courteous, working hard, safely, and with obvious knowledge about their work, leaving us very satisfied with the job they did. Thanks!
Thank you for the excellent job done on my laurel trees: worth every penny because the thinning and trimming have been done sympathetically to the shape of the trees and my needs of the trees. You are all so tidy, I wouldn’t have known you had been there except that I could see what a great job had been done.
Thank you, I am very happy with my tree now and you did a fantastic job, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you! A wonderful, professional job.
We first contacted The Tree Station for a quote for some tree work in our garden back in October 2014, they have been very helpful advising us on our options without any pressure. After making our decision we contacted them again a couple of weeks ago and they arranged to come and do the work very promptly. The work was carried out in a very professional manner over two days and I felt fully involved at every stage. The team were polite, courteous and caring and cleared up completely each day. They worked hard both days to ensure it was all done and even took some cuttings of a favourite shrub for me. I would highly recommend them and look forward to working with them again in the future.
Firstly I’d like to thank you for the initial visit to look at the trees. You were exceptionally knowledgeable, informative and concerned I was both happy with your suggestions and also the welfare of the trees – which was very important to me. We discussed how they would be reduced/thinned, keeping the shape, privacy and preserving the trees too. I had one other quote where their sole aim appeared to be to ‘chop the lot down’ of which at the time I was speechless! Needless to say, your approach was refreshing and inspired confidence in me you would do a great job. Your team were fantastic – professional, friendly, knew their stuff and did an amazing job. I discovered Tree Station by accident online and am amazed such a fantastic operation is just around the corner in Openshaw. To have a local business so committed to sustainability and the environment is admirable. I’ll be recommending you wholeheartedly – fantastic job at a good price. Many thanks again.
Just to say thanks to the guys who pollarded the sycamore for me, they’ve done a great job and left everywhere really clean and tidy. They worked really hard, were fast and efficient and stacked up all the wood for me.
Really pleased with your work (have tweeted about it today!) nice people and a very tidy job!
Just a little note to say that the lads you asked to do our job were an absolute credit to you! They worked like Trojans throughout the day despite the temperature. Polite, well mannered lads too! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
I was very pleased with the recent work TreeStation did for me. The guys who came were excellent, very pleasant to deal with, very careful, helpful, obviously very competent, did a wonderful job and left everything in very good order. I also greatly appreciated that you came to give the estimate when you said you would and that the work was done as planned and on time.
The work completed by Nick and his team was excellent and I have and will continue to recommend the professional job carried out at our property recently.
Thanks again for a great job I will recommend you in the future.
I have found dealing with you and your company, a very good experience. You and your technicians, have been very professional in all aspects and I will be updating the Which Local online page to reflect this. Not to mention recommending you to any friends and colleagues.
Many thanks to the team for their professional work – I wouldn’t hesitate to use your company again should any further works be required.
I engaged the team from Greater Manchester TreeStation to remove two very large poplars from my garden. From quotation to completion, the team were extremely knowledgeable, courteous, reliable, incredibly hard working and carried out the work to an exemplary standard. The site was left impeccably clean and tidy. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Thank you to your team for doing a great job and being very very tidy!
I can really recommend the TreeStation. I needed to have a dead tree taken down in my garden and TreeStation have done a fantastic job. They were quick and efficient, and importantly for me took great care not to damage my plants. They sawed the wood into fire lengths and neatly stacked it on my wood pile. Tree Station have a strong environmental ethos and when I buy wood from them or have tree work done I can be certain that I am supporting a responsible and green business.
We’re very pleased with the finished job and the guys were brilliant – very professional, courteous and looked after the property. We shall recommend you to any who need such work.
I wanted to thank your team for their excellent work today. They were fast, efficient, highly skilled, tidy and very conscious of community / neighbours. A very pleasant experience from the consultation stage through to completion of the project.
The Ecos team did what they said, when they said they would and cleared up neatly too. Great communication, good work. Trees looking content despite a long overdue session of trimming and pruning; customer looking happy.
Every time we use Ecos they are efficient and know what they are doing. They have a love for trees and so always do their best to preserve where they can and offer good sound advice at all times. All the mess and debris is cleared away and they are very courteous too. I value their opinion as I have a lot of trees in my small garden and want to see them flourish. Ecos have helped sustain them well. Thank you Ecos – I would recommend them to everyone
As a recent customer I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ecos. I can truly say that it was a pleasurable experience from start to finish. The fully detailed quote for the works was quickly received and exact, communications were very friendly and all emails were quickly responded to. I was extremely happy with the work performed, the main work was to a crown lift and thin a large overgrown Lime tree, which now looks amazing and is a real asset to the street. Other trees were felled exactly as agreed, with the remains chipped and neatly bagged for future use in the garden. I was very happy with the care taken during the work, given the close proximity of the numerous trees to both my house and my garden wall. My garden was fully cleared of all debris and was left spotless, and if it wasn’t for the vast transformation there was no sign that any work had taken place! Many thanks once again!
I was very happy with the work your team did – I was totally impressed by them all and I could not believe just how tidy they kept and then left the garden and outside of the house – it was hard to believe a huge tree had been felled and shredded as they left no evidence.. I was really happy with them all and would like to hire them again to teach my kids how to tidy their rooms. Thank you so much again for a great job – will highly recommend you and your company to anyone I know in need of tree surgery or wood!

I would like to say thank you very much to the TreeStation for the tree/vegetation clearance on site prior to our construction works. Phil was very swift with his response to our quotation request, start times & supplied all the relevant documentation required to carry out the works on site. He kept us fully informed of his progress each day & carried out the works in the time required & to a high standard. I would highly recommend Greater Manchester Tree Station as they were very professional in their approach & execution of the works, with a high level of customer service providing an excellent all-round package. Peter Lothian on behalf of McArdle Sport Tec Ltd
Treestation help us to maintain a large amount of trees which we have in our school grounds. Their service helps us to sustain a beautiful site in which to educate our children about the great outdoors.
The quotation we have just received from the TreeStation is very competitive, and we know from past experience that their tree surgery services are very professional and effective.
Ecos delivered an amazingly prompt and professional service. Ward & Wagster Tree Services will definitely be using them again. Ecos allowed us to concentrate on the finer details of our customers requirements. Without a doubt we would recommend using them.
As a small tree surgery firm Alderwood Tree Care has sometimes employed TreeStation in order to assist us in fulfilling larger contracts which we have occasionally taken on. We have mainly used them for timber extraction, and have on occasion needed their expertise in the dismantling and processing of large trees, using machinery that smaller tree surgery firms like our own do not possess. Over the years we have found TreeStation to be very competitive on a price basis and have appreciated the flexible approach they have had to our requirements. The teams we have worked with have all been very friendly and have approached each task with safety being their number one concern. Having a working relationship with Phil we’ve seen how successfully he has grown his business over the last few years and have been impressed with his ethical attitude towards the industry. We wish Phil and his team all the best in the future, would not hesitate to use his services again and would happily recommend him others.
We have had the pleasure in working with Phil Benn and Ecos over the last five years for tree work carried out on residential and commercial developments. We have always been impressed with their knowledge and professionalism, their attention to detail and commitment to Health and Safety best practice. The execution of their work on site has always been efficient, professional and of the highest order. They are our preferred contractor whom we have recommended in the past and will continue to.
