About Steve

Steve Owner of Cutting Edge Tree Care

Hello and thank you for visiting our website. My name is Steve I am the owner and manager of Cutting Edge Tree Care. Let me tell you a little about myself.

At the age of 24, I made a career change and began a journey into tree surgery work. My granddad had been a gardener at Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire, before becoming a self employed gardener, and I think some of his green fingers passed to me. Initially, I started working as a groundsman under the guidance of an established and highly regarded tree surgery company in Cheshire. That experience imparted a true appreciation, skill, and enthusiasm for tree surgery that has stayed with me. That was some 20 years ago, longer than I care to remember.

With plenty of hard work and enthusiasm, my role with that tree surgery company soon progressed from groundsman to trainee tree climber, gaining my qualifications and more valuable experience, skills, and knowledge along the way.

By 2008, I had become a very capable and highly regarded tree surgeon in my own right, and I made the decision to begin climbing independently for other tree companies whilst setting up my own tree surgery company in Macclesfield, Cutting Edge Tree Care, which is now in its 15th year.

I am extremely proud of the excellent reputation we have gained, both in the private and commercial sectors, and my belief is still the same toady as it was when starting Cutting Edge Tree Care – to offer the best possible tree surgery services to our customers. From our knowledge and experience and unrivalled skill in tree surgery work, to offering valuable advise along the way, with a friendly, professional, personal, and reliable approach to our work, all of these points are as important to me as they are to you, our customer, and I pride myself on offering all of this as Cutting Edge Tree Care.

Finally, and most importantly, your satisfaction with your trees after we leave, whether that’s with a complex crown reduction and leaving the tree looking as good as it can, or a section fell where nothing is left, your reaction should be the same – “My garden or business look great and everything has been left immaculate with minimal disruption”.

Many thanks for reading about me and my journey as a tree surgeon in Macclesfield. I hope it has given you a brief insight into our tree surgery company and the great service we provide.

Hi Steve, Many thanks yet again for a superb job. We have been more than happy to pass you on to our family and friends. We shall be giving you a ring when our trees require further attention.

Bernard and Kath, Tytherington, Macclesfield

Steve thank you once again for all your hard work sorting out our trees. It is wonderful to actually have someone as good and efficient as you are to help us. As usual you arrived punctually, did exactly as we asked and tidied up afterwards. Thank you again.

Christine, Alderly Edge

Have since used Cutting Edge Tree Care twice again on the large conifer hedges at our house In Mobberley. What can I say brilliant job again.

Sue and John, Romiley

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Steve and Cutting Edge for the work completed on our garden. Having 2 trees completely removed and a further 2 trees cut back has brought in much more sunlight and has transformed our garden into a much lighter space. Extra garden waste was cleared and everything was left in a very clean and tidy manner. A very professional job completed in a surprisingly quick time, I can certainly give Cutting Edge Tree Care a glowing recommendation!

Gareth, Chisworth, Glossop

Thank you Steve for your quick and professional response to the removal of a large dead and dangerous tree at our angling club. I would recommend Cutting Edge Tree Care to anyone.

James, Cheadle, Cheshire

To Steve and Cutting Edge Tree Care Macclesfield. Just a quick note say many thanks for the swift response to my call for help. You and your company provided a first rate job cutting back our tree lined borders and removing all the debris. Very quick, very professional and at a good price too! I will have no problem using your company when the need arises again.

Andrew Hardy (Sales Manager) Lookers, Stockport

Dear Steve, Thank you for all your help applying for permission to prune the trees in my garden which have preservation orders on them. I am very pleased with the way you have pruned the trees – it has given the garden and house much more light. Kind regards.

M. Eden, Mobberley

We used Cutting Edge Tree Care Macclesfield after they were recommended to me by one of my clients. We had a large sycamore tree over hanging kennels and exercise area that was in poor health and a nuisance. We were really impressed with the service Steve provided from checking for a tree preservation order to the skilful way in which the tree was climbed and taken down. Especially as the tree was over lots of obstacles (fences / buildings etc) all sustained zero damage. At the end off the work the areas were cleared and tidied really well and they cut and moved all timber ready for us to use on our fire. Great job will continue to recommend to my clients, friends and family.

Sue (Director), Chadkirk Boarding Kennels, Romiley

Just wanted to say that we have used Steve from Cutting Edge Macclesfield on behalf of our clients on several occasions over the last 12 months and what a fantastic service they have provided. Really nice to have contractors that keep to arranged appointments and carry out all work required with minimum fuss and maximum quality. We have also had great feedback from landlords and tenants themselves. Many thanks again Steve and we look forward to using you again soon.
