  • People, planet and pocket-friendly power? Aspen is the answer says GT Trees

    Cleaner, greener and lower maintenance costs. Those were the main reasons Greg Tucker of GT Trees made the switch to Aspen Fuel and, five years on, he’s still shouting about these benefits and many others he’s found using the Alkylate fuel in his independent gardening and landscaping business. In an era when many professionals may feel the pressure to invest in electric tools, Greg cites how he and his customers value that Aspen improves conditions for people and the planet while reducing the amount of functional equipment resigned to the shed or scrapyard. 


    Greg has worked within the arb sector for 18 years, recently changing direction towards more artistic projects – hedge work, topiary, shrubs and small tree reduction. For this, he relies on the performance of his fleet of hand tools – mostly powered by Aspen 2-stroke Alkylate petrol. “My journey into using Aspen is pretty common… I’d heard of it, gave it a try and I’ve been using it ever since” he explains. “My maintenance costs have reduced, and from the operator perspective, the headaches, congestion and other health implications typically associated with being in close proximity to petrol-powered equipment has been all-but eliminated.” 


    “Like most, I have explored electric tools but found they just didn’t cut it – literally! Battery life was not practical and, ultimately, the kit we already have does exactly the job we need it to. Through using Aspen, we can do our bit to be kinder to ourselves and the environment, and not be throwing away serviceable equipment.” 


    Aspen 2 is a pre-mixed 2-stroke Alkylate petrol, free from ethanol, benzene and many of the other hazardous hydrocarbons typically found in unleaded from the pump. This means that Aspen burns cleaner, reducing harmful emissions and providing reliable engine performance.


    “We use roughly 25 litres a month, which we order through our local distributor, and find that the increase in the price is offset by the reduction in expensive repair bills we’ve had.” Greg continues, “You know what you’re going to get – you’re not going to get halfway through a job and run out of juice! Customers also recognise the red Aspen cans and are completely sold as soon as I reel off all of the benefits it has. I can’t recommend it enough!”
