We have multiple tall oak trees on our property, with two trees with major branches overhanging the roof of our house.  One of the trees, a twin oak has one-half of the tree precariously leaning towards the house.  As a precautionary measure against possible wind damage to the house, we wanted these trees pruned to eliminate the overhanging branches and address the leaning twin oak tree.  Contacting Bartlett Tree Experts resulted in a meeting at our property with their local Arborist Matt.  I was impressed with his in-depth general knowledge of trees and the reasoning behind how to properly approach the surgical branch pruning that would not adversely affect the continued growth and life of the trees.  While I had a preconception of the tree work that I wanted performed, from listening and considering his recommendations based on his education and experience, we were able to agree on what the most appropriate extent of pruning to be to provide us with peace of mind, while maintaining tree health.  Within one week they prepared and sent me their cost quote to perform this work which was fair and reasonable.  I did find that I had to repeatedly contact them to schedule a day that I would be home to observe the work, which was done within a two-week period from the original meeting.  Under Matt's supervision, the two workers, using a cherry-picker bucket truck parked in our driveway, were able to perform most of the trimming and pruning work.  For limbs out of its reach one worker expertly climbed up into the upper canopy of the black oak tree to surgically remove the remaining branches.  Throughout this process, they took great care to lower the large cut branches to the ground avoiding any contact with our cedar shingle roof.  They ground mulched and carted away all of the cut branches and used power blowers, to clean up all of the remaining debris from the terrace, walkways and driveway.  As agreed, they also installed a new stainless-steel bolt & cable connection linking the two twin oak trees together, thus providing additional reinforcing strength against wind-driven tree swaying and bending.  Ultimately, I believe that Bartlett Tree Experts did an excellent tree pruning job for fair price and with my persistent follow-up calls, on a calendar schedule that met my desired time frame.  Therefore, I can highly recommend them for this type of work.

I highly recommend this company. They are professional, quick & they clean up everything. I found the pricing to be extremely fair. The arborist who provided the estimate was very knowledgeable and personable.  We will use them in the future, for sure. More...

Having a few oak trees that started looking sick, I contacted Bartlett Tree Experts and arborist Ryan Cuccia sampled the tree and identified measures to combat pests and nourishment. Ryan also identified other areas of concern including severe overgrowth of kudzu. Ryan developer a treatment plan, offered several affordable options and also revisited the trees to ensure the work was satisfactory. He continued to call and keep me abreast to all areas of options and the final desired outcome. Thus Ryan's team performed strenuous work in cutting down massive piles of brush and at least 8 dead trees (killed by the kudzu). Bartley's mulched you all the debris and their work was top notch!I will be using Bartlett again in the future, especially this spring, and highly recommend the company, including Ryan as your tree and landscape expert.  And this company actually shows up and follows up to give you quotes as opposed to the various other heavily advertised companies I've attempted to use in the Calvert County/Southern Maryland area. Best of all, was a pleasure working with Ryan and Bartlett's pricing was comparable and better than two companies that actually showed up for price quotes. You will not be disappointed using Ryan and Barlett. More...

PERFECT!If there is a better rating, they should be there!Excellent workmanship, and a team event with their work. From start to cleanup! Extremely safety minded and finish work is amazing. They did 160 ft. of arborvitaes, topping 6 ft. off the top and shearing all sides. Clean up was excellent. After they were done and before they left, we walked the work to make sure they did as the contract stated!Two days after finishing their work, they called to ensure I was satisfied with the work.I certainly was very satisfied.Jack Girnus More...

Thank you Barlett Tree and James Riddle! We have a large, corner lot with multiple mature trees and a professionally landscaped yard in both front and back.  We take extreme pride in assuring our property always looks top notch. James met with us and knew about each tree, best time to trim them and gave us a bid which we thought was reasonable. They put us on the calendar for three weeks out (but came the next week as one tree had to be cut back to the Walnut Creek standards as a couple branches had grown to the sidewalk). Today they showed up as promised, 4-5 different men on site! Very organized, some did the trimming while others assisted in picking up the trimmings and removing them. Our home was left spotless, the trees were perfectly trimmed, thinned out and shaped. I am a local realtor and will recommend them to all of my clients and anyone I know! Top notch company, very professional. More...

All of our dealings with Trent Skaar and Bartlett Trees have been outstanding.  Trent is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with.  The two gentlemen who came to do the work were exactly that, gentlemen.  They introduced themselves, talked about the plan, did outstanding work and ensured everything was clean and tidy before they left.  They reviewed the work with us after they were done to ensure we were happy and satisfied, which we were.  When we received the bill we were quite surprised at how reasonable the price was.  It wasn't nearly as much as we expected it to be.  All in all were were extremely satisfied with the process, start to finish and are happy to now be on their yearly program.

I highly recommend Bartlett Tree Experts. From the estimate to completion, they were timely and efficient, a pleasure to work with. My trees were pruned artfully, not butchered as a previous company had done. We had one tree removed from storm damage and the crew took it down successfully, cleaned up and removed all debris. They will be back in September to do some more work on our property. More...

I would give more stars if I could! I am a property manager for a large HOA and have had the pleasure to work with Joe Bartl. He has provided the most comprehensive proposals of any arborist that I have worked with. It is clear what each tree needs and why, there are no unnecessary extras, and bids are price competitive. He has accommodated and worked around complex requests and schedules. He spent extraordinary effort getting city and encroachment permits to remove a very large tree, and worked with a couple of bee keepers to find the best solution to save a large hive. His focus is on the client and tree health. I can trust him to be responsive, professional, not overcharge or add extra work, and because of that he will have my continued business. More...

Josh Lehmann is great!   He's very knowledgeable and offers excellent input and advice on the proper care of your trees and shrubs.  The team recently performed a small job trimming the evergreen hedge on the property line between my house and my neighbors.   They did a very nice job and were courteous, taking the time to talk with me and my neighbor about what was being done and how we might take additional steps in the future to bring the overall height of the hedge down to a more manageable level.   Their pricing is a bit on the high side - especially for smaller jobs due to the minimum charge for bringing a crew on site.  However, they are definitely expert arborists!    I would highly recommend!

This tree service is really wonderful!  Just had them out to trim two large trees on our property, and four young men spent four solid hours on them!  They moved all of the pots and other things that were in their way, carefully put everything back when they were finished, cleaned up even leaves on the ground that were already there, and the trees look wonderful!  In addition, they were careful about letting our desert tortoises and box turtles through the gates.  I can't praise them highly enough....will definitely use Bartlett again!

Chris is an expert coordinator who handled my job at Bartlett. The team removed a medium size (~30 ft tall) ash tree in my back yard with minimum disturbance and great efficiency. The team was willing to work around the script a little bit to perform stump grinding the way I wanted.Reading the other reviews on HomeStars, I was hesitant, however, I was very pleasantly surprised with how smoothly things went. The price was quite competitive and the service timely, without surprises and frankly, quite good. I am glad that I chose to go with Bartlett in the end. More...

We live in Westbury and during the Sunday, April 7th storm our 60 year old Hackberry split in two and on to our roof. I emailed Erik at Bartlett Tree Experts that day to see if they had availability early the next week. Erik emailed and came out that same day as the storm (which was a day they weren't even open). Erik took pictures and give us a quote on the Hackberry tree and a Water Oak limb that fell on our neighbors roof. His team came out on Tuesday (2 days later), completed the project, and everyone was extremely professional. Notably, because they were so expeditious, we were able to get the damage in our roof repaired the same week we had a tree come through the roof. We have used 4 different arborist and this company is by far the most professional, knowledgeable, and empathetic. Further, you can tell when they come out that the love what they do! Highly recommended! More...

Bartlett Tree Experts did a fabulous job of removing a giant Eucalyptus tree that had died and was immediately adjacent to our home.  Kevin who supervised the removal has 19 years of experience and his expertise was clearly evident during the process.  His partners, Sam and Emelio, also were first rate.  Together they were an excellent team.  They took great care not to damage our home or any of our plantings.  Their versatility in climbing and operating a scissor lift was astounding.  We're so lucky to have Bartlett available here in Tucson and Oro Valley.

I have to say I'm really happy with Bartlett tree. I was having a major issue with my Maple due to a bad frost last winter. They came out and fed it a few times and trimmed off the dead branches, saving a decent amount of the tree. I was really happy with how it was trimmed and the fact that I didn't have to replace it. I also had the company trim a lot of the older trees along with my beautiful ancient willow in my back yard. They took great care in trimming all of the older dead branches. She looks better than ever and is thriving! If you're looking for professional and knowledgeable arborists, check out Bartlett tree co in Barrington. Paul Schmeltzer, one of the specially trained arborists, will come out and take as much time as needed to go over all of your questions and put together a plan that works for you. He is quick to respond with any questions, should you email him. I'd also like to say, the girls answering the phones Amanda and Anne rock! They will help you with any questions you have and go out of their way to get you set up with scheduling. I will definitely continue to rely on Bartlett to take care of my trees. More...

From chatting with Brad at the home show, booking appointments thru Kris and getting the job done by Ian, Harry and Martinez our experience with Bartlett tree experts couldn't have gone better. We had 3 quotes and true to our practice we went with the middle of the road price/company and gut feeling of 'this one's right'.  Ian Harry and Martinez worked quickly, safely and left no clues that they were even there except for our now 'trimmed up" and 'cabled' sugar maples ( 2 huge  and old) and arborvitaes (that when we had snow) hung over our power line to the house. A follow up call questioning our satisfaction the next day wrapped it all up in a perfectly beautiful customer service (a rare experience) bow.Fives stars is not enough! More...

Great service, wonderful communication and reasonable prices! They are low-pressure and didn't try to oversell me.Very professional experience.

We weren't going to have our trees trimmed this year, but Mother Nature had her own plans; the big snow storm in February caused a lot of large, broken limps on several of our trees that needed to be removed.  Jordan Harris from Bartlett came to give an estimate - Jordan was very thorough in evaluating our situation and provided us with a written proposal that same afternoon.  Given the size of the work to be done, we thought it was a fair estimate.  The work was scheduled for two days, and the crews did a professional job on all of our trees, but especially while removing three very large oak limbs from over our roof.  From start to finish their attitude was fantastic, and they were careful not to damage the perennials that are just now starting to poke above ground, and the clean-up afterwards was better than we expected.  A big shout-out to Denny, Caleb, Gavin and Ryan for all of your hard work!  We will definitely be calling Bartlett for additional work in the future.

Not exactly cheap but reasonable. Very professional. They are also very fair in that they do not try to talk you into doing things that are not really necessary. We wanted trees and branches cut that might damage our house during the next storm. This is exactly what they did and nothing more. More...

We have worked with Bartlett Tree Experts on several occasions and they do a great job.  On the first visit, they promptly cleared a tree that was blocking our driveway.   On this most recent visit, Adam worked with me to design the scope of the project, was knowledgeable on the specifics of each tree, and gave me a firm estimate.  The team on the job was skilled and experienced, plus courteous, punctual and tidy!  Our stone pine now looks like a work of art.  Thanks.

Bartlett out-bid two other companies to work on my two front yard split-trunk 85' Deodar Cedars.  This week's heavy wet snows tested the quality of their work.    Trees branches fell all over Seattle on cars, sidewalks and houses.  I just lost one small branch with no damage caused. I've been meaning to YELP Bartlett for a month now -- the bucket truck crew they sent out was super friendly, competent and methodical in safety.  I was very impressed.  Pleased customer.  More work coming.

Love this company. Always very professional and incredibly helpful when it comes to anything tree related. Will always recommend this company to others. Definitely give them a call ESPECIALLY if your trees/hedges are taller than 15ft tall as most regular gardening companies require special permits and equipment at this point and Bartlett Tree Experts have just that!

After getting several quotes to remove a remote backyard large WR cedar, we chose Bartlett Tree Service as the winner -- and we were not disappointed.  This elimination outcome was based on the fairness, transparency and professionalism of Nathan (arborist & estimator).The scheduled work took place on one of Victoria's wettest days (Dec 11) and the crew proved to be exemplary in carrying out their tasks.  Along with no complaining, each crew member was polite and considerate.Any extraneous mess was promptly swept clean and this job was completed surprisingly quick and on time.Without hesitation we will both recommend to others, and use their services again should the need arise.  [This review was voluntary and not a solicitation from Bartletts] More...

Trees are very important to me and my family. When we built our home some 43+ years ago, we chose a lot with ancient oaks and maples. These massive trees give us wonderful shade and are a delight for us to look out and see. We have been lucky to have Bartlett Tree Experts as our official arborists for a period of time and I can not find enough words to detail how pleased we are with their service. The crews are well trained and every thing they do begins with safety issues. From hard hats to safety glasses these men understand how critical safety is. I was impressed with the depth of knowledge the crewmen had as they approached problems on our tree covered lot. What was amazing was one could not easily see the areas that were trimmed during the structural trim. It all came together professionally and seamlessly. The on site arborist, Skeet, has many years of experience and it really shows when a tree saving plan is drawn up by him. With his talent and experience working in tandem with his seasoned crew I as a homeowner really benefitted. Did I tell you that our oak trees have been estimated to be about 400 yrs old. I do trust these treasured trees to Skeet and his professional judgement. I felt lucky that Bartlett has this knowledgeable, talented man on their service team. You will receive great value in your selection of Bartlett Tree Experts. More...

I wrote a review yesterday and it seems I was mistaken and could have gotten out of my driveway.  It was very deceiving from my kitchen window, so I apologize for being unfair about this. They were trying to make sure no driveways were blocked, but it was difficult in our cul-de-sac. They did a great job removing the trees and our neighbor was very satisfied with their service.  They were unable to park in back and had to hand carry everything from back to front manually and were parked the only way they could as there was no back gate for them to use.

I'm really surprised by the low reviews, too. Bartlett Tree Experts has done work for my condo association in San Francisco for many years, pruning a large tree in front of our building. Unlike other services, Bartlett always did a nice job and never butchered the tree. The city now takes care of the street trees; otherwise, we'd be hiring them forever. Michael Moore from Bartlett helped me with a tree replacement for our garden. He carefully researched the best type, given the soil we have, and came up with a lovely suggestion. The tree he found for me is perfect. His crew planted the tree and it's thriving. He gave me lots of good advice about watering and general care for not only this tree but for the garden. Their work was nicely done and the crew polite and professional. More...

I'm really surprised at the low reviews. I have always had excellent service from Bartlett.  Most recently, I needed to have 5 street trees in front of a condo building trimmed back.  They were blocking light and hanging low over the sidewalk. Bartlett came out very shortly after we called for an appointment.  Their quote came in as the middle of three quotes, so we went with them.  They arrived on time and did a phenomenal job of pruning the trees. Whereas some people make a tree look like it got a crew cut, Bartlett's work was so amazing that if you hadn't seen the trees the day before, you would not have been able to tell that they had been pruned.  They retained their amazing shape, they were balanced, and you couldn't really notice where branches/leaves were removed.  They kept measuring things to make sure that the tree was selectively pruned, and were sure to work in a way that kept the tree healthy. They really know their stuff!  Work was completed on-time and the work site nicely cleaned up afterwards. I would absolutely use them again. More...

I heard back from Bartlett - from someone I trust.I was told that they had addresses my complaint (read main review).So, in fairness - - -= = = =I have used Bartlett for years and they are head-and-shoulders above the rest. They have dealt with (sometimes difficult) pruning, storm damages but most of all - they rescued three beautiful hawthorn trees that got severely infected by a fungus - which had already killed other hawthorns on my street.It took almost two years of diligence on Bartlett's part - but the trees are back to full bloom and full health.I would not hesitate to use Bartlett for any service they provide.

Cory Fitzpatrick is an ISA certified arborist, an ATCIA certified tree safety professional and the manager of Bartlett Tree Experts in Kenmore, WA. He identified "at risk" trees and his company has cared for our "urban forest" yard for the past three years.To maintain safety to the house and property, some tall firs needed to be removed. A few other trees were treated to maintain optimal health. Recently, Cory's company did a huge pruning job (tall laurels, etc.) and, under Cory's direction, his crew removed the "at risk" branches that were hanging over the side yard. Since we began working with Cory, every single job has been done with the utmost care. Also, Cory will not remove or touch a tree if it does not need any work. Over time, he has earned our trust because he is highly knowledgable, professional and genuinely cares about the the ongoing heath of the trees and plants in our yard. More...

This is my second time using Bartlett and I've had very good luck with them.  Nate came out and assessed my situation (30 foot tree limb had fallen and taken out s smaller dogwood under it) and had a crew out the next morning.  They worked hard and were done and cleaned up after an hour or so.  I obtained several quotes and Bartlett offered the best price with the quickest turnaround time.  I'm going to use them for my other tree needs from this point on.

Just had two of my Bradford Pear Trees pruned by Bartlett and I can't be more satisfied with the work they performed! They did an excellent job on keeping the natural look of the trees and you couldn't tell they were even here after they were done. They did an excellent job cleaning up. It was a crew of 3 guys and two trucks. Took them roughly three hours to complete the job. Bradford Pears are notorious for splitting and they gave good advise on future maintenance to help prevent the trees from splitting. Highly, highly recommend Bartlett! More...

We've been using Bartlett Tree Experts for several years for regular tree care. We have a row of cherry trees along the street sides of our corner lot. Cherries do have limited lives and can be a little high maintenance. Ours had borers and a virus. Bartlettt gave us an estimate for remediation and annual (biannual? I forget) service. They scheduled us promptly after we selected them from several bids. Since then, when they come to spray, they always knock on the door to let us know they are there and remind us of what they will do. They clean up after themselves including limb drop and frankly do some cleaning up after us. *grin* They mark the property for chemical applications.One tree in the middle of the yard (a pink cherry as opposed to the white cherries along the street) was in bad shape. Bartlett told us its days were numbered. They did their best and we got two more years of beautiful blooms before the knock on the door that this year was the year. We had plenty of time to consider our options. Bartlett removed the rapidly declining tree and ground out the stump before putting in the dogwood we requested. They also moved the bed line in to balance the much smaller tree.Our cherry trees look great and the new dogwood is filling in nicely.They've done a few odds and ends for us (storm damage and such, some pre-emptive limbing). We've been very happy with their services. I don't give out five star reviews very often. It's like pulling teeth. Bartlett Tree Experts deserve the recognition. More...

With a sick red oak, a cherry shading my neighbors roof, a black jack scraping our roof, and three dead bushes, we were in dire need of some work. Requested quotes from several companies and Bartlett immediately responded and were 1ST in getting us a quote and providing a certified arborist to tend to the sickened oak. Work scheduled and completed less than two weeks after estimate. This also included treatment to the trunk of the red oak. Workers were uniformed, professional and wore all the proper personal protection equipment. Crew was large enough to have safety paramount. The last thing you want is to have someone hurt in this dangerous profession. Very pleased with the outcome, it's up to the tree gods if the red oak responds to treatment and recovery. Planning to have their arborist making annual check-ups for the oak. More...

Bartlett is the very best. We've used them at least twice, and the last time they came the day before the high winds hit.

As always, when they my yard was cleaner that it was before they came. More...

I'm so surprised to read the previous reviews about Bartlett. Maybe happy people don't write reviews? My experience with them was excellent. I got an appointment quickly; Bob the arborist showed up on time and was informative and honest (and he has a great sense of humor!). He told me I didn't have to cut down a tree I was concerned about; instead, he recommended trimming and feeding. He recommended a different plan for each specific tree - and shared the reasons for each treatment. He even gave me advice on how I could feed my own palm trees to help them grow. Bob emailed me a detailed proposal by the end of the day. Once the crews showed up to do the work, they worked HARD and were respectful of us and our property, cleaning up after every tree was trimmed/treated. Bob showed up each day before his crew arrived, to review the work previously done and make sure we were satisfied. When I added additional, smaller jobs during our walk-throughs, Bob was amenable and accommodating. It has been three months since Bartlett was here...my trees are happy, green and thriving. I recommend them highly. More...

We had a big job to trim trees and to prepare our trees and their roots for a large house being built right behind our home. Erik (one of Bartlett's arborists) came out to visit with us and spent time discussing each tree and what should be done. His quote was reasonable and the work was done by a knowledgable, dependable and professional crew. They finished early so the bill was adjusted. Erik visited on the day of the tree trimming to make sure that the crew understood what needed to be done for each tree. In addition to trimming, we arranged for fertilizing all of our trees and insect spraying for a tree and shrub with a history of insect damage. We were very impressed by Erik's expertise, his relationship with our tree trimming crew, and the quality of the trimming and clean-up after the job was completed. More...

We've hired Bartlett to do tree work for us in Hershey twice now and their work has been superlative. Mark Wheeler and arborists Chris and Ethan restored two old overgrown magnolias beautifully, removed major limbs from ancient tulip trees and restored two old cherries to their natural beautiful shapes. They also shaped two newer trees getting them off to a good start. The team was courteous, communicative, hard working. They left our place cleaner than when they arrived. We felt the charge was very reasonable and their expertise unquestionable. They truly made our property more attractive. And we've scheduled them to come back in the fall. Can't recommend them highly enough. More...

Very professional tree inspection & diagnosis of our sick pine tree.  They took samples, sent them to a lab, and came back with a treatment plan 8-10 days later.  Time will tell whether the treatments will cure the tree, but I wish I consulted with them last year when I first noticed the ailment.  Good company if you're looking for real arborists vs. someone with a saw and some questionable trimming experience.

I had spoken to Chris Howell from Bartlett Tree Services about taking care of some trees at the house I recently purchased. I had 2 trees in the front shaped and thinned. There was another small tree in front that had been breaking so they removed it. During the process, Chris checked with me to ask if I was happy with the work that was being done.  I mentioned a couple spots I wanted addressed and they were taken care of.In the backyard, I had a very big palm tree removed.  They did a great job. And there was another tree - also a huge tree - which had developed two trunks off of the main one. One side was curling downward which could have had future problems, especially if it got weakened or was hit by lightening, so they trimmed that side and cabled it to the other side to give it strength. Then they came back and ground down the stumps from the trees that were removed. Everyone who worked on the trees was very professional, efficient and cleaned up beautifully. Chris communicated with me continually before, during and after the job to make certain everything was to my liking. Tammie in the office called me afterward to ask if I was happy with the work. I would highly recommend Bartlett Tree Services if you have any tree issues you need to have remedied. I am very happy with the job they did at my house!! More...

With this last Nor'easter, a very tall pine tree fell on our house. Bartlett came out that day to give us an estimate, and 2 days later the tree was removed and the roof tarped. Workers were professional and friendly. They cleaned up when done. Would definitely recommend! More...

I called Batlett Tree Service when we had a bad storm and a River Birch we had planted the previous year, was pulled partially out of the ground.  My husband wanted to take it down but I really wanted to save it.  Bartlett came out and said the tree could be saved with the proper treatment.  They had Bobby, a Plant Health Technician come out within a week or two and he treated the tree. By the time Spring came,  the tree was thriving again despite part of the roots being exposed and losing one of the main branch tops.  I was so grateful that the tree was saved and straightened back out; you'd never know it was damaged.In addition, Bobby treated our Camelia's for T-scale and they have improved tremendously. The company is very good at reminding you when your next treatments are due.  They also came out just to see how well the trees were doing.  They have wonderful customer service and everyone from the representatives to the techs are very professional, couteous, friendly and on time.  I would highly recommend Bartlett Tree Experts!

Fabulous service - from the original person (Wesley) who came to bid the job, to the office personnel, to the workmen - wonderful, friendly, cordial and conscientious service.  Had three big trees trimmed today.  Phenomenal job!  Workmen (Ryan and Peter) were punctual, pleasant, and cleaned up all mess created with the pruning.  They were here about 5 hours for this BIG job.  While they were here, the arborist representative (Wesley) stopped by to make sure everything was going smoothly.  I've used other tree companies over the past 10 years.  This one beats them all in terms of responsiveness, plus the job they did was great.  Kudos!  Got the name of this company from a friend, and have now recommended this company to another friend who will be utilizing their services this next month.

Bartlett tree is a fabulous company to work with. I spoke to two other large "tree" companies and they paled in comparison to Bartlett. Michael, Bartlett's aborist has incredible knowledge and cares deeply about trees and satisfying clients.  The workers are neat and clean as well as knowledgeable. The office staff as well as Michael  communicates very well.  I would not use any other company. More...

Michael at Bartlett Tree Experts has been looking after the health of our large and small trees for years. He is knowledgeable, professional and kind.  On Monday, a very old, beautiful 28" diameter tree came crashing down on our home. Two large limbs came through the roof into the kitchen where I was standing mere feet away. The rest of the tree was resting on the roof and surrounding the house. My first call was to my husband, the second was to Michael at Bartlett. Michael was at my house within 15 MINUTES! He assessed the situation, determined that it was not due to rot or pests, but roots had been damaged when we had done some construction and the town had required a trench some 15 years before. So the whole tree came out of the ground. Michael told me he would have a crane and a crew at my house by 2:00 (it was now 10:00). Well, everybody was here at least 2 hours earlier than he estimated! They went right to work, got the tree off the house, out of the kitchen without damaging anything else (which was a miracle), cleaned up all the debris outside so nary a stray stick was left on the lawn! DONE by or before 5:00. AND they tarped my roof! I was astounded how quickly they had this giant mess cleaned up.They trim trees, fertilize, diagnose, take down dead trees, every sort of care to trees. But! They also were at the ready when I needed them most. If I could post a picture, I would because that would say it all. But I don't think there is a way to do that here. BARTLETT IS NOTHING SHORT OF FABULOUS. More...

We've been with this company for years. Our trees are healthy and thriving because of their attentive service. Adam is awesome. He's professional, extremely knowledgeable and just a pleasure to deal with. We really trust his recommendations. When, at the last minute, we needed an evaluation of redwood trees surrounding a house we were thinking of buying he showed up quickly and gave us good advice. The service people who come are courteous and leave the yard very clean. I recommend this company all the time. More...

We didn't end up using Bartlett, however I am very happy with their customer service and will consider them in the future. Bartlett made it very easy and quick to get someone out, as they have arborists who work in specific territories around the metro area. When Mike came out, he was very upfront and honest about how challenging our very dead tree would be to get out given access to its location and its fragility. He presented a couple of possible options that he felt comfortable with, and also recommended another company that might also be able to do the work at a more affordable cost and with a higher tolerance for risk. He was also very responsive to follow up after coming out and in the process of determining whether Ultimately we ended up hiring the other company to do the work, but I was very impressed with Bartlett's approach and honesty. Kudos for excellent customer service! More...

As a commercial property manager, I've used many tree trimming services over the years. Using an arborist like Bartlett Tree Experts was a completely improved experience. First, I received a detailed proposal that not only gave me a tree count and trimming cost, it also created a budget plan with timing aimed at keeping the trees trimmed and fertilized at optimal times over the next year. The trimming was promptly scheduled, the work took place as scheduled, and the trees look great. No "who-ville" or lollipop trees here! More...

Bartlett returned today to finish removing my Modesto Ash in my front yard.  The two guys, Alberto and Jaime were awesome.  They spent several minutes analyzing the tree on their approach to decapitate it and then went straight to work dropping the Ash to it's knees. They cleaned up as if they weren't even here.  They even placed large rubber mates on my lawn and planned each and every branch drop to land on the mates, thus not damaging my lawn.  PS, they hit the mates every time.. not bad I say with 14" limbs that weigh hundreds of pounds. Need tree service, look no further, Bartlett are the ones... Thanks again... Jesse Asis. More...

Called Bartlett Tree Experts on behalf of my elderly parents.  They had two 35+ year evergreen trees that were damaging the rear of the house.  Brad B. was very professional.  He visited the house, advised my parents he was there and would be in the yard, etc.  Received a written quote for the removal, which included removing the stumps and all debris.  Bartlett called for the JULIE locate in the same week the trees were scheduled to come down.  Crew came mid-day and both trees were taken down, stumps removed, pinecones raked, etc.  Very, very pleased with the professionalism, service and courtesy from everyone at Bartlett!

We will continue to call upon Bartlett and recommend them to our friends and family. More...

We have had Bartlett come out a few times to remove a single tree.  We did a larger project, in which they removed a dead tree, removed a very large branch on an oak tree, and trimmed about 15 additional trees.  All of the trees are on a very steep hill.  Billy, the crew manager, was polite, friendly and professional.  His crew was the same.  They were very hard-working and did an excellent job.  On the trees that they trimmed, they checked in with me several times to make sure they were trimming the right amount, and not taking off too much.When they were nearly finished, I asked them to trim a few additional branches on a hickory tree that was about half way down the hill.  They were tired, but graciously did as I asked.They did excellent work, and the hill looks beautiful.  We will definitely hire them again.  We give them our highest recommendation!

I had an excellent experience with Bartlett Tree Experts. Scheduling a time for the arborist to come out and evaluate the trees I needed trimmed was very easy. Joe P. was on time, friendly, and promptly sent a detailed estimate via email. I felt very comfortable they would do the job right and help my trees be more healthy vs. others I received estimates from. I was able to book the tree trimming over email - they showed up on time, were very careful around our belongings and power lines, cleaned up, and performed their work safely and efficiently. I highly recommend giving them a call! More...

We had a storm damaged tree that needed to come down, as well as another 2 trees that were dying or at risk of coming down. We also got them to prune some of our other trees to give our yard a bit more light. Nicholas worked extremely hard to get the necessary permits as well as negotiating with BC Hydro to come and turn off the power. His crews were quick and efficient and extremely neat and tidy. They were also extremely pleasant and helpful. During the series of 3 storms in mid-October 2016, it was such a relief to know that those trees were no longer in danger of falling on our house or our neighbours' property. I highly, highly recommend this company. More...

During a bad storm a 45ft hickory had crashed through my roof, wedging itself between rafters and giving me an unanticipated new skylight and water feature. Bartlett removed the monster tree safely and without any additional damage [no small feat...lots of power lines and a very, very difficult terrain, where they could not use their typical equipment]. They were polite, efficient, focused, and communicative and they left the site clean. They managed the extracted tree exactly as stated, cutting the hickory into pieces I can later use for art projects and placing the wood where I had requested. They did a great job. More...

It's always difficult when you lose a tree,  but the team at Barlett made it pretty painless. We had a very large pine near our house that had to be removed manually. They came when they said they would, and Daryl and Eddie could not have been better. They were efficient, polite and really took the extra steps to protect the plantings in my garden. In very close quarters they removed the tree and ony one leaf on my Hosta was harmed.... and this was a very very tall pine tree with lots of limbs. I would not hesitate to give them a perfect rating. More...

We just had Bartlett Tree service of Essex, Ct  remove five very large oak trees from our property in Deep River. I called the office and got a return call from Dan right away. He came out within a couple of days and gave me a price proposal.  They started the job within a week and did a fantastic job. My home is nicely landscaped and although they needed a large bucket truck and a 90 foot crane to complete the job, they were very carefull of the lawn, shrubs, plantings and the driveway. The job was difficult to say the least but was completed in two days. Every bit of debris was picked up and removed each day and they left the grounds spotless. They all worked very hard all day but were also very safety conscious. They also ground down the stumps and removed the sawdust.      In summary I do not think that you could find a more professional courteous service and also at a good price.... More...

I don't know what makes a 5 star Tree Service Provider.....Let me just say....I think this is it...My wife met Erik The Arborist from Bartlett at the Houston Home Show and she asked him to come over and look at our 3 mature oak trees and 2 very tall pine trees. These trees have not been trimmed in over 8 years.Anyway......Erik came over and gave us an estimate. It wasn't the cheapest nor the most expensive. It was in the middle of the pack. The reason we chose Bartlett was because of Erik. His analysis confirmed the other two bidders opinions of our trees. Plus he was so knowledgeable and friendly. He taught us a few things we didn't know about trees.....(nice)So we moved forward and scheduled the service. The workers arrived on time and each one introduced themselves to me. They were all garbed in safety gear and were very pleasant. They got right to work and were so quiet I hardly noticed them.... 8 hours later, I realized they were gone. I went out and wow...just wow..the trees look great and there is so much more light in the yards.....That night I got an email from our next door neighbor. She wanted to comment on the Tree Team....She said she was so impressed at how they left her yard in better condition than before they started work. She thanked us for selecting such a professional Tree Company. I then went outside and look where they had been working and dang if she wasn't right....The yard WAS clean....So 5 stars it is....Thanks to the great people who came over and worked so hard and conscientiously and thanks to Erik...

I could write a book on this company's excellence!!   To begin with, their prices blew our other estimates out of the water , and were kind enough to discount us because our neighbors were already using their larger equipment and trucks.  They have a team including actual arborists! As a scientist myself I can't stress enough how important it is to know not only how to take a tree down, but how to help a tree thrive. Bartlett came to my home and assessed every tree on my property detailing what would and wouldn't happen to each over the years. It was like a free lifetime quote of tree maintenance that will save me a ton in the long run.  Sounds expensive right? Wrong! There were trees I wanted to take down because they looked worrisome, but I was told we're not. What more can you ask for from a business than this kind of honesty? Other tree companies would have taken my money gladly to take down the trees Bartlett said weren't an issue.    I'm thankful for their honesty and look forward to using them for years to come. Thanks Alan! More...

We recently had to take down a tree on a property.  Though we were sad to see the tree go, we were completely impressed with the Bartlett crew.  They were skilled, careful, friendly, courteous, and efficient, and showed great teamwork.  Not one of them was idle for a minute; as soon as one finished one part of the job, he smoothly moved in to help with another part.  They did a great clean-up and were a pleasure to work with.  Looking at another review, I will say that we have had a little trouble sometimes making contact.  Email seems to work best.

Bartlett has the best team of employees. Hard working experts, their attention to detail is unmatched. Had the third of three thirty foot pine trees removed today and stump ground below grade. From the start of the job, always on time, their attention to safety, their own and that of my home and property, was quite evident. They left the area spotless and rock ground cover in perfect condition. You'd never know there was a tree here just a few hours ago. Yes, they may cost a little more, but the peace of mind and quality is well worth it.  I can just see another tree removal company dropping the tree onto my house, fence or through a window--but I'm confident of a job well done with Bartlett knowing they take every precaution and more.  Each individual represents in word and action true customer service.  Thanks so much!

After much research, I interviewed Bartlett Tree Service, the Sonoma office, to trim and prune several large oak trees on my property in Kenwood. Scott Carothers was the Arborist and point person with Ramon (foreman),Anthony (climber) and Kenny (ground man) doing the work. Prior to Bartlett, I interviewed several other companies, large and small, due to the cost of the job. To put is simply, the team I dealt with at Bartlett was professional, totally focused on customer satisfaction and knew what they were doing. After our first meeting, Scott emailed a copy of their insurance coverage. This is absolutely essential if you are going to have men climbing in trees on your property unless you enjoy litigation in the case of an accidental fall. I can strongly recommend this company.

Bartlett Tree Experts are terrific! and their rep Kevin Kenney is fabulous to work with.As chair of our 200 Block E.78th St. Assn. in New York City, I called Kevin summer of 2015 to assess the damage that several severe winters had done to our street trees. He walked the block pointing out what needed to be done - no charge. Early 2016, he sent a very reasonable proposal for an early summer pruning and fertilization.The crew arrived as scheduled - even early, a rarity in the City - closed off the street and not only did a thorough and highly professional job of pruning the trees but were extraordinarily considerate of the residents and pedestrians. Bartlett's the best!Cynthia M. More...

Bartlett Tree Experts just removed a large holly tree a tight space in our property and I could not have been happier with the work they did. Their estimate service was prompt and thorough and they worked with my schedule. Other companies saw the tree and either stopped responding to my calls or padded the quote to discourage the business but Bartlett didn't shy away from the job. When they came out, the men were quick, professional, and friendly. I cannot overstate how pleased I was with their clean up either. We had requested that clean up be added to our bill and we certainly got our money's worth. I didn't see a single tiny branch from the tree anywhere on the property. This tree was such a nuisance that I was convinced removing it was going to be a headache but it was so painless and I am ECSTATIC. Great job!!! More...

Before you read too much, I am rating this on the professionalism & response I received from James's quote, not the service for, I did not use them.   James was personable, knowledgeable & responsive.  He took time to discuss each of my trees and options.  Pointing things out using his green laser made it easy for us to see what part of the treat he was talking about.  He left letting me know he would email me a quote which, I received two days later.  The quote being higher than I expected; I emailed asking what could be done to still get my trees completed at a lower cost.  He responded the following day giving me options which did impact the price but just not enough for my budget.  I hope to use them in the future.

Wow! I can't describe how impressed I am with Bartlett Tree. We live in the hills of Lafayette had a bunch of "tree experts" coming by giving us their business cards and telling us they "Will give us a great deal. " We have so many trees in our yard that needed help, we decided to call a legitimate arborist. WOW! I'm glad we did.Tony (from Bartlett) came by and did a walk around. For the most part, he recommended leaving a lot of the trees alone. The ones he recommended work on needed complex assistance. One of which was a dead Poplar tree. Tony recommended getting a lift to remove the tree for safety purposes.The crew showed up exactly on time. You can tell right away, these are highly trained tree experts. They know what they're doing. The professionalism was amazing. Here's the best part: Bartlett's quote was right on par with the 'walk around tree hackers' in our area. So this means, for the same price, we got a certified and honest arborist's recommendations, highly trained professionals, top notch equipment, and special attention to safety. It was a no brainer!Bartlett rocks. More...

We had two major branches of a beautiful oak tree give way out of the blue (on a warm, sunny summer day). One branch fell on the house, the other on our neighbor's powerlines. Sean was out within about an hour or so to secure the tree, and his crew came the next day to remove the tree since it realistically couldn't be saved. Barlett's crews are always very professional and nice  to boot (losing the tree was like, well, losing a leafy member of our family). They left the yard cleaner than it was before the tree collapsed! There are cheaper tree services out there, but we'll go with Barlett's every time. More...

We have a mammoth 200+ year-old Hemlock tree with a split at the crotch that needed emergency repair. The crew was scheduled to do the job almost immediately after the initial consult. While it saved us a bit of money, it turned out that one brace support and cable wasn't sufficient, as we were still nervous whenever the wind blew. The creaking was kind of scary! We called Rick, the rep, and he came out to take a second look. We worked together and agreed on a fair price to add an additional two rods to secure the torn area. While it took the crew a little while to come back to finish the job (much of this was due to inclement weather), once the work was completed, we were really pleased. The crack in the middle that was once alarmingly apparent is now almost seamlessly non-existent. Super nice crew with agile men willing to risk their lives in order to save the life of our beautiful old tree! More...

I'm writing this review as the neighbor of someone who had a large, massive tree removed by Bartlett Tree Experts.   The tree was 105 years old and had been infected with ash borer.  But when I say this tree was huge, I mean it was really huge.  The three men working, Juvencio, Jose and Zack worked their butts off in terrible heat and humidity to break this tree down and haul it away.  They never stopped working except for a lunch break.  As a neighbor, knowing this massive tree was being cut down and the close proximity to my own house, I was very, very nervous.  These guys did a phenomenal job.  By the end of the day, each day, you didn't even know a tree that size was being removed.  There was no sawdust anywhere; no damage to my home or the owner of the tree's home; no mess left behind; no inconvenience.  Just fantastic.  If I ever could suggest a tree removal service, this would be it and I would ask specifically for these three guys.  They did an outstanding job and so much so, that I asked for their names just so I could write this review.   I highly, highly recommend them.  Awesome work and great service from this crew.

Great Service.  We worked with Robert Barber who was knowledgeable, and worked with us to get everything done at a reasonable price.  Thanks!

We had 2 trees pruned by Bartlett in late February 2015. This is the second time we've used them, and they were excellent both times. They are extremely knowledgeable and professional. The certified arborist always does the consultation and quotation, and advises us on what the maximum pruning can be to preserve the look and health of the trees. They won't do a "hack job" just because you might want one! The crew who did the work were very respectful, hardworking and QUIET! Hardly any power tools, and they didn't damage any surrounding plants, etc. The cleanup was excellent, and they even chipped a bunch of other garden clippings I had, no charge! I would highly recommend this company if you love your trees and want to maintain them in the best possible way. More...

Barlett Tree Experts came out today to cut down a healthy tree on my property and remove a tree on my neighbours property that was partially dead. The two gentlemen that showed up were very curteous and arrived at the scheduled time. They promptly went to work and in a timely manner completed their tasks. They were very friendly politely answered all my questions and once the task of bring down the trees was completed they tidied up the work area and left it so you could barely tell they had been there. Well done, I was quite pleased, in fact so much so that not only would I recommend them to a friend I would definitely recommend them to family. Satisfied with the work and the cost was reasonable. Thanks Darren, you have an excellent crew. More...

We have been battling black spot fungus on our live oaks for years. I spent a fortune on spraying. I finally had enough with the service and called Bartlett. They told me to call them as soon as the leave started to appear in the spring. They came immediately and sprayed twice. Turns out the spraying only works on new soft leaves. The other service had been spraying too late and it wasn't doing any good. Now the trees are spot free and healthy looking for the first time in years. Bartlett Tree Experts is the only service anyone in Austin should call regarding their trees. They know what they are doing. More...

I have a one-acre lot with a number of trees, mostly clustered in and around the front yard. I'm sure that before they reached their mature height they were perfectly spaced, but now (as the second owner of the house) I find them blocking sunlight to the flower beds and lawn below and obscuring the view to my home. I called three companies to walk the property with me and prepare quotes. One never responded to my online inquiry or phone call; one finally put me in touch with the proper person by forwarding my call to his voice mail after 3 separate calls; and Bartlett promptly set up an appointment that fit in with my schedule. Brian from the Baltimore office came out to take a look around. In the way of history, several years ago I contracted with a company specifically to thin crowns by 20-30% and to raise the canopy to increase sunlight. The company came recommended by a friend whom I thought understood some of the basics of gardening. As it turns out, a bunch a guys arrived in a couple of pickups and a shredder machine; many were clearly overweight, older, and out of shape. I specifically directed them not to simply top off trees, but to prune them appropriately, and went inside to work. When I came out, I was not pleased. Some trees had been topped off; none were properly thinned, and needless to say I learned my lesson about using "tree care specialists" who were not certified Arborists.Back to Barlett. I explained my objectives and concerns to Brian who listened carefully, then described his plan which included the removal of a tree that was close to the house; I hadn't considered that possibility. He also identified a few issues with some of my plants and recommended a treatment (e.g., a holly that was infested with mites under the surface of the branches). He has a very well-rounded understanding of all things plants. I appreciated his advice and took it (and the holly is really flourishing now!)  Brian's plan did not include up-selling or talking me into things that were not needed. His plan was focused on the objectives I had described. He pointed out some issues with other trees that I had not noticed; in most cases recommending a wait-and-see approach before doing anything like spraying, and in one case recommending that broken branches due to a storm be removed from a large fir tree in the side yard. I felt like I was getting a very comprehensive assessment. The Bartlett team arrived on time, and the 5 man crew were dressed appropriately (company tee-shirts, heavy canvas pants, boots) which was not my experience in the earlier situation described above. They were polite and the entire operation appeared to be a well-oiled machine - taking down two trees, thinning crowns and raising canopies on 6 other mature trees including a mature pin oak, and grinding one stump. There was no goofing off and the team finished in one day. They were polite and very hard-working climbing to the tops of trees and not taking short-cuts. They seemed to use their safety equipment very well (climbing rigs, hearing protection, hard hats and so forth.) They carefully cleaned up all debris and removed it. I'd also like to point out that their equipment has treads which really helps to minimize damage to lawns since their weight is more fully distributed. They had a grinder, a machine to carry branches in a large bunch, and one other which I can't seem to recall at the moment. Can I tell that equipment traversed my yard? Yes, of course I can. But it will bounce back in a day or two and in fact looked very good this morning, less than 24 hours after the work was completed.I'll use Bartlett in the future, as I have another area behind my house that needs attention. But, since my daughter is getting married early next year, I thought I'd save some cash and defer that work for now. Get your quotes from other companies, but be sure to include this company in your decision. They may not the least expensive, but they offer a great value in my opinion. More...

Marc Bruno of Bartlett Waltham got caught in the crossfire between my backyard neighbor and myself and handled himself with good grace.  He was patient, honest, and thoughtful in answering my questions regarding my concerns about the  results of his evaluation of two trees on our shared property line.  Although I have not used Bartlett for tree service, I give Marc Bruno five stars for his people skills.

Having Bartlett Tree Experts come to your urban garden is almost as cool as having Spidar Man visit your back yard! On January 31st I moved into a new co-op and have had a constant flow of workmen, "handymen", and other so-called "professionals" in and out of my apartment. By far, the most (only?) responsible, prompt, REALLY-KNOW-WHAT-THEY-ARE-DOING professionals has been Bartlett Tree Experts. A friend who works at the Bronx Botanical Gardens referred me to Bartlett last summer when I was first looking at this apartment. She said they were THE "go-to" tree experts used by the Botanical Gardens as well as most other major NYC parks, university grounds, etc.  I called and was contacted promptly by Mr. Charles King. I explained my concerns about the apartment I was considering (aging trees in the back yard, dead limbs, light concerns, maintenance issues). He offered to come to the apartment and look at the trees. No charge. Just to give me an opinion.  He gave me and the seller's' real estate broker an eye-opening and jaw-dropping explanation of what the issues were andwhat could be done. He was amazingly informative. I am sure this realtor will never ever ever sell an apartment in NYC that has trees without remembering Mr. King and the education he gave her. In any event, I bought the apartment in January and needed the tree work done ASAP in the dead of winter because there were imminent  liability issues (when I moved in I saw a big branch detatched from a tree and about to fall on a neighbor's property). I called Mr. King, he remembered me/my apartment and said he could get it taken care of 2 days later. AND NOW STARTS SPIDAR MAN... Bartlett Tree Experts show up and completely cover my (newly refinished) floors. Three guys. They start tossing long ropes up into the trees (there own web, of sorts). Pulling themselves up on pulleys or otherwise. They are 5 stories off the ground, throwing ropes around branches, cutting the branches, catching them just as they fall to the ground. They were obviously having a goodtime because all my neighbors were hanging out of their windows watching them and cheering them on. Nicest guys. They obviously love their work. They said they even go to tree trimming competitions around the country. Who knew there was such a thing. Absolutely talented guys. THEY REMOVED APPROX EIGHT HUGE PLASTIC CONTAINERS (EACH ABOUT FOUR FEET HIGH) of cut up tree branches and dirt and snow and ice from my garden (which had a foot of snow and ice). I DID NOT EVEN HAVE TO SWEEP MY FLOOR! They were so perfect in removing everything without any dirt, water, etc. Because it was winter and snow, Mr. King had the workers come back today and remove the twigs that they could not remove until now due to the spring rain. I wish the rest of the country ran businesses this way! More...

Five is not enough stars!  Super professional and skilled, and truly a pleasure to do business with.  These are not just guys with chainsaws. ..they are true experts who know their stuff and genuinely love trees.   We had an overgrown and mal-formed pear tree in danger of falling on our house.  They listened carefully to our concerns and created a plan that focused not only on protecting the house but on saving the tree and making sure it grows properly in the future.   They showed up with a cherry-picker and a wood-shredder, made hanging precariously from a tree with a chainsaw look easy, cleaned up everything thoroughly after they were done, and even honored our request to keep some of the wood, stacking it neatly into split-able sizes.  And they did it all with a smile.  A million thanks to Marty (our original assessor) and to Victor and the two other guys whose names I wish I had gotten (the team that did the work.)  They were all top notch.  Thank you!!   Thank you!!

After several unsuccessful attempts to hire another tree service this year (actually two other tree services) to remove a dangerously dead tree from my property, I remembered that Bartlett Tree Service had come to the rescue years ago when a tree fell on my house during a snow storm.  Sure enough I called and they came through again.  The person on the phone was extremely helpful and polite.  I received an email with a detailed quote on the day I was told someone would be looking at my tree.  Scheduling the removal of this tree was easily done and they accomplished the work today as promised.  I would highly recommend using this service above any of the others that came up when I was looking online for help with this issue.

We had a non-native Red Oak that started sapping like crazy, and the bees were swarming over it. We had 1 of their certified Arborhists out to take a look at it. He was able to arrive within 2 days of contacting them & immediately identified the culprit - the dreaded Ambrosia Bark Beetle, and recommended treatment for it. Their treatment guy arrived 2 days later and sprayed the tree with the right professional grade pesticide. Was a great learning experience for us & they provided us the proper information for future maintenance of our old beautiful tree - which would have  been a disaster had we lost the old girl. Will definitely use them in the future. Reasonably priced and fair. More...

Not sure what we would have done without Bartlett. The couple hundred year old oak tree in our front yard fell on our house in the middle of the night. Bartlett was there first thing in the morning making things happen. From working with our insurance company, the city of Novato, the bee expert and so much more. They were so sensitive to what our family went through. They even spent the time to cut some pieces for us to keep for memories. Once everything was done, there wasn't a stick or a leaf left on the ground. They were so professional and efficient. Thank you Bartlett!! More...

Simply outstanding!  Jay Johns (a licensed arborist) and his crew do an awesome job and are extremely professional.  They have done several very big jobs for us and they have the expertise, the man power, and correct equipment to do the job quickly, safely, and perfectly every time.  I can not say enough good things about this company and it's crew.Just today we had a major oak tree come down in our yard blocking our lane.  They were there within 30 minutes of our call with a crew of three men with three trucks, bob cat, grinder, trucks, etc. to get the job done.  The cleared the giant oak tree, trimmed surrounding trees, and then raked the entire yard of every branch and stick before they left.You get what you pay for and this company does the most professional job in the area.  From big jobs to small jobs.  I highly recommend them.

Bartlett Tree Service was recommended to me by my neighbor and they were great.The best part...I could communicate with them. ..they spoke English. Jesse and his crew did a great job cleaning up after last weeks heavy wind storm, which downed a lot of tree limbs around our area. Besides cleaning up all of the blown down limbs, they also did a great job cleaning out some dead oak limbs, raising the canopy of some limbs that makes it easier for me to mow around the trees now. The three man crew were professional, polite and left my yard in great shape. They also raked up the leaf litter around the trees they worked on.I am extremely happy with the service.  Call and ask for Andrew Anstrom, who is one of the Arborist representatives. Andrew knows what he is doing and his crews were very good as well. Bottom line ...I got more than I expected and that is always a good thing. More...

They did an excellent job, were courteous in the process, and left the job site clean. We are very satisfied. More...

Bartlett responded promptly to evaluate the problems with my trees, ranging from a pecan to a citrus, to a faltering but cherished ironwood. Not only did they accurately assess the problems, they had crew out within the week to deal with the issues. I received a clear and useful explanation of the purpose of the work to be done. Within a week, I can see results in all my trees. I heartily recommend them to anyone who wants their plantings knowledgeably cared for. I can't speak to price, but I thought the charges were entirely reasonable. More...

Bartlett was recommended to us for tree service by family members that used them.  After receiving a quote from them, I looked on Yelp and was not excited about choosing their service.   I contacted another company for a quote and debated between the two.  We eventually decided to go with Bartlett.  I am extremely satisfied with the results.  The guys showed up on time and were very efficient while working.  They even hung  a tree swing for us.  I had to leave before the project was completed and when I returned, my house looked much better than it did when I left.  Everything was cleaned up and removed.  I absolutely recommend Bartlett Tree Experts.

Bartlett has done great maintenance work on our trees for many years now including pruning back tall trees and bracing a pear tree in our front yard.  We have always been very happy with the work they do. Unfortunately Mother Nature had other plans for our backyard paradise and subsequently iced over and toppled five 20 foot tall trees on our property (fortunately not on our house thanks to an extra sturdy swing set). We called Bartlett and they were out there the following day and removed the trees. They did such a great job cleaning up all of the debris and did a wonderful job. Hopefully this is the last time I need to have trees removed from my yard but if I do I know who I will call! More...

I was on the phone with my 83-year-old mother tonight, and she lives in the Tucson area.  She was raving (in the awesome sense) about the Bartlett Tree company, and how great they've been for her.  Sitting in front of my computer at the time, I googled Bartlett Tree company in Tucson, and saw this one very negative review.  The vast difference in what my mother was saying as I was reading this negative review has caused me to write this review.  She hired them within the last year to re-do some trees and plants in her garden, and she was Tremendously Happy.  (I had told her that she needed an arborist, not just someone who would trim her trees, because whomever she had earlier did a terrible job.)  She had googled "arborist" in the Tucson area, and found Bartlett, and is beyond happy with their service.  She recently had someone from Bartlett come back out to look at a tree that they had planted and it was growing extremely well.  There was some sort of offshoot on the tree (sorry, can't think of what it's called), but it was like a whole new trunk growing up.  The Bartlett Tree rep went out to his truck, go a tool, and took the offshoot off, and wouldn't accept any payment.  He simply said, Just call us next spring and we'll come back out.  My mother couldn't be happier, and when I saw her garden last month, I was beyond pleased at how well it looked compared to the pre-Bartlett days.  So please understand that there are those who are not satisfied, and there are those who are.  And my mother is one who raves over how well she's been treated by Bartlett.  Thanks for your time.  I just want to be fair and give praise when praise is due.  Oh, and my mother is not one to spend money in a crazy way.  She watches her money carefully.  She felt they gave a great value for whatever she was charged.

After last year's derecho storm, I noticed that the leaves on several branches of a large oak in front of my home were wilting.  Not a good sign.  I waited until this spring to see whether they would revive.  They didn't.It's a beautiful tree, so I called Bartlett Tree Experts, a firm with certified arborists, so see what the problem was .. And to let me know whether it could be saved.  Gary came a few days later.  He examined the tree and agreed that the tree had been stressed by the derecho.  But he discovered that the underlying clause was a tree disease.  He told me that he thought that here was a 40% chance of saving it.  That would involve trimming the dead Branches, applying medicine to the trunk, and fertilizing it in the Fall to give it strength.  The price was not cheap, but I thought it was worth it to save the tree.  While Gary was here, I had him inspect a few more other trees on my property.  There were two adjacent trees which had grown together at the base -- Gary said that Sooner or later they ought to be bound together for safety.  A clump of birches close to my house -- he said that they were far from growing to their full height;  they ought to be bound together and a growth inhibitor applied.  I decided that I would see how well they did the job at hand before I ordered more work.  We set 8:30 this morning for starting the heavy work on the oak.Several days ago, a man dropped by to treat the disease on the oak.  He struck me as being very bright -- he was polite and articulate, something I like.This morning the crew arrived at exactly 8:30, ready to work.  These guys were no "chainsaw jockeys".  They were professionals, smart, polite, and VERY hard working.  We are in the midst of a heat wave, with "feels like" temperatures over 100.  They brought a cherry picker truck, since the oak is over 100' tall.  As they set up, a small amount of oil spilled on my driveway.  They immediately set about cleaning it up, and Gary came with some additional stuff to clean it up, adding his apologies to the crews.  He said that if the stain remained in a few days, the company would bring some power washing equipment to clean it up.The crew worked until about 3:00.  It was obviously dangerous work -- the cherry picket would only go so high, so one man had to climb up in the tree to get the upper branches.  I talked to the crew chief, and he said that the company has a strong culture of safety.The crew did more than was in the contract.  The contract said that they would remove and branches more than 4" in diameter, but they got smaller stuff when it was within their reach.At the end of the job, they got rid of all the branches and debris, and did an excellent job of cleaning up "the site".  I had expected that this sort of a job might have left some plants and shrubs the worse for wear, but that did not happen.Oh, and the oil spot -- turns out they use vegetable oil in their chain saws.  It's not going to be a problem.They did everything they said they would do, and they did it very, very well.  I expect to be using their services in the future More...

My yard has many older trees in it that had been left for years on their own. They have been allowed to get so overgrown that they were starting to choke each other. Bartlet came in, pruned and shaped the trees and restored them. I was very impressed with the job they did and the condition that they left my yard in. The trees grew out beautifully and my yard looks great. They will be back in for annual maintenance and my neighbour is probably going to have them come and do their yard as well.

We hired Bartlett to provide pruning services to 4 trees on our property, a couple of which had been brutalized by another supposedly very reputable company a couple of years ago. We love our trees, and want to enhance and preserve them, not have them chopped away at to fit an ugly and artificial ideal.
So, we contacted Bartlett, and had Darren Silcox come out (rep for Maple Ridge area) to do the assessment. He was prompt, personable, and very knowledgeable, being a certified arborist. He made reasonable recommendations, listening and responding to my questions, and very quickly provided a reasonable quote.
Getting the work scheduled was a little bit of a runaround, as Darren went away on vacation for a while in the interim, which I didn't know.
Anyway, he finally got back to me about the best time to come, and the crew turned up promptly. I really liked that Darren was there to walk the crew through the job, making sure they understood the work. Once that was done, he left, and Dennis and Tim (?) took over. What terrific guys! Due to our previous bad experience with a different company, I watched them the entire time, to make sure what they were doing was what I and Darren had discussed. They were so careful and precise, and asked me a few questions as small decisions came up. Dennis especially was a real tree pro, with all the correct rigging and safety gear, and tree knowledge. He was SO meticulous. They then cleaned up the whole site, and left no damage at all to all my plants. Plus, as an added bonus, they weren't power-tool happy, and used them only as needed at the minimum volume. The trees look great, and they have put them back on the road to health and beauty. Thanks guys! You've restored my faith.

I had a back yard worth of branches that needed chipping, after I pruned a bunch of trees myself. It was a pile of about 1800 cu ft worth of branches stacked loosely. A Bartlett employee came to give me a quote for it. He was very pleasant and did not pressure me at all (ie, he did not come with his chipper ready to go, wanting me to let him do it right away, or something like that).I later decided to go with Bartlett and they came a few days later to chip the branches. They removed every single branch and twig, cleaned the yard very well, and afterwards it didn't even look like any branches had been in the yard. The clean-up job was amazing.Although this was a very simple job, I will most likely use them for future tree work, big or small. More...

I'm surprised by these negative reviews.  We had a large 40 foot Elmtree that almost split in half on a Sunday durng a storm here in Austin.  A very large branch was hanging precariously over the neighbors house. Bartlett came out immediately in the middle of the day Sunday and assembled a very very professional crew. They removed the dangerous limb. And returned 10 days later after attaining a permit from city to remove the remaining tree which had a large amount of rot within its core. They performed all of the services at very reasonable price and in the most professional manner I have ever seen a tree company work. We lived in central Austin for over eight years now. I've worked with several tree companies in this by far was the most professional tree service with quality employees that I have ever worked with.  Steve Kinslow was their certified arborist that supervised the project. He was exceptional as was their entire staff.  Thank you Bartlett tree service!!! More...

Bartlett came to our house in San Francisco where we had a huge tree blocking the entrance to our driveway.  We had three other arborist come by and do an estimate, which were all higher than Barlett.  The other companies also said it was going to take a couple of weeks to come back out, assess again and then cut down the tree. Bartlett's representative, Juan, saw the tree, gave us a fair price and was able to come back within a few days to get the job done! They cleared out all remnants of the tree and even helped till the soil for our next planting. Could not be happier with their professional operation, not to mention the cost which was cheaper than the others. Thank you, Bartlett! More...

I hired Bartlett Tree Experts twice, once for the pruning of several trees and again for a tree removal. Both times they first sent an experienced arborist for an initial assessment; someone who clearly knows the needs of different tree species very well. After that they sent multiple guys to do the actual work, which was completed efficiently and very cleanly. They're very professional from beginning to end, starting with an initial proposal that they mail/email to you (so you know exactly what you're getting) and a final invoice that's also mailed so you pay only after you're satisfied with the job. I'm very pleased with their service and have already hired them again to plant a few new trees. More...

I needed to have 3 very large maple trees topped/pruned in my back yard. The trees we getting dangerous and close to my house. I had a few quotes done by other companies but Bartlett came across very professional. I dealt with a licensed representitive and all the work was performed as quoted. The crew that showed up was professional & safety was their top priority. My trees now look great! Thanks for an easy decision! More...

We had a tree in the front yard leaning over onto our roof and got this company to shift it back into place. Although result aren't immediate, I'm glad they were able to pull it back so that it's not over the gutters. As a bonus, they helped prune the tree a bit! More...

I hired this company when I had an old alder tree that I thought needed to be cut down. These guys determined that it was still safe if it got trimmed. Glad to keep the tree and am very satisfied with this company! Will be recommending them to friends. More...

Bartlett's did a fantastic job of pruning my pine tree, which included raising the skirt, thinning the branches and reducing the overall height to ensure healthy growth. They also showed that safety is a priority over work, appropriately postponing additional pruning until BC Hydro could remove branches that were too close to the power lines. More...

We have a huge hedge bordering 3 property lines. In order to trim it they had to bring in the bucket. They did a beautiful job, cleaned up everything and did not harm any of my garden plants. When I asked about a couple of branches on our cherry tree, they trimmed them out without charge.The arbourist is very knowledgeable and the technicians really know their jobs. I was very pleased with the thinning they did on my large cedar tree as well as the trimming to keep it within our boundaries. I like the fact that they do not encourage tree topping which is detrimental to the overall health of the tree. More...

Bartlett Tree Experts has done work on several properties on my street, the most recent being the removal of my 50' pine.  For this most recent job it was very important that it be done without incident as the tree was also over three other properties/houses .This job and all other work was done safely and as scheduled for a reasonable price.  Also, the communication was great and they helped me get the removal permit from the city.  Very good clean-up on my and the other surrounding properties.  I wish all the work I had done around my house went as smoothly as this and I would recommend Bartlett Tree Experts very highly.

We have used several different arborists, and Bartlett is the only one that has done exactly what we requested consistently.  We have Mike Greene as our arborist, and he is remarkably knowledgeable and easy to work with.  He walks the property with me and gives me an accurate estimate, and then comes on the day of the work and walks the property with me and the lead worker (usually Juan, who is the best pruner especially for tall trees that I have ever seen) so that we all are on the same page.  Mike of course leaves to get other jobs started and do other estimates, but when he leaves there is never anything unsettled.  I always stay home on the day they come so that they can ask me questions if necessary, which they always do if they are the least bit uncertain about what was to be done.  They have me come out and review some of the larger trees before they finish to see if there is anything more I want done, trimming very specifically to whatever I want.  They always earn a tip from me!!!  I was surprised to read the other negative review from Mill Valley, but perhaps that is a different arborist and team, not the crew from the Smith Ranch Road office.

We have been using Bartlett Tree Experts for several years. We could not be more pleased with their service. Our property has numerous trees of different varieties and Juan Ochoa, our arborist, has done an amazing job taking care of them. What  we love about Juan and his team is that he is always trying to save us money. Too often I suggest pruning, treatments, etc. and Juan is always the first to tell me when I don't actually need a particular service. I wish that every person who worked on our home showed the same integrity. Not only is Juan concerned with the health of our trees but he always appears interested and concerned in the general health of our entire garden. Each time we have had a crew out for a job they have been absolute professionals. The job is always done right the first time and they are meticulous about cleaning up which I appreciate. More...

First task of a landscaping project was to make sure the trees (maples, cedars, laurels) were in good health and then remove dead branches, reduce the crown heights, prune back the branches. The service was excellent and professional. They removed all debris and this included raking the site around the trees and path along which they dragged the branches. The manager was on hand at the start to make sure that the men understood what was required. At first I thought it was a little expensive but the trees look noticeably better. Like leaving the salon with an excellent hair cut. Not to short, well balanced etc... I will definitely use them again for general tree upkeep. More...

I left getting my Dogwood and dwarf apple trees sprayed until a little late in the spring. Bartlett used a weaker solution of the oil and assured me it that the "scab" being sprayed for wouldn't develope on the trees. It's August and it hasn't and, the trees look beautiful. I have in past years paid about 20% less but dormate oil is messy and these technicians do not overspray onto your sidewalks or structures, and that is worth the extra cost. More...

Terrific.  We got quotes form 5 firms and theirs was very competitive.  Their attention to service, attitude, service and clean up were great.  They were straightforward about what was and wasn't really necessary.  Highly recommended. More...

We have used Bartlett services on our heavily treed lot in Mill Valley for something like 20 years plus.   We have from time to time used other services, and some are quite satisfactory.   But with the onset of sudden oak disease and the need for caterpillar control, special fertilizing, etc. we have depended more on Bartlett for the last 5 or more years, in applications to add longevity to our native oaks.   Yes, the company's services are not inexpensive.    Yes, one can get more aggressive pricing from local firms that do not carry a large national firm's operating and research overhead.    But Bartlett has never let us down, or let us feel that the company would not stand behind the work we pay for -- and I much prefer using firms for dangerous tree service that are professional, adequately insured, and reliable.    If you have disease or pest control problems with your tree cover, Bartlett can bring to bear a first-rate research and application team with experience on a nationwide basis.    Finally, Bartlett is fortunate to have here in our own San Rafael office people who are qualified, thoughtful, and diligent.    As long as we can afford the services, we'll probably consider Bartlett for most of our needs.

We've been using Bartlett for the past 5 years and we couldn't be happier with the work and services they provide. We originally called Bartlett to look at a sick citrus tree that we didn't want to lose and when Bill came out he was able to diagnose our trees problem and set up a program which included treatments, fertilization and pruning and this tree has come back amazingly. They are a great company and provide excellent service we definately woud recommend using them your trees will thank you! More...

I had a great experience with Bartlett.  My father had always used them and when the time came to spruce up the property last year, I found them very easy to work with.  The Bartlett crew was patient and agreeable the entire time, stopping their work while I hemmed and hawed about branch height and how any cutting would affect the view.  The office staff was very nice when I called about splitting the bill with a neighbor.  Their response was prompt and the math was accurate.  Art was great, very down to earth and hard working.  I highly recommend them.

I needed some branches trimmed away from the house and called the same company my neighbour used. When the gentleman arrived to provide the quote, he also identified one large branch that was bound to break off if not cut back. Those two tasks combined came out to be less expensive than what we'd envisioned. They said they'd come about 2 weeks later, but it took them 3 weeks. Otherwise, all the work was done as expected.

After many years pruning trees and hedges on our property myself, my back told me it was time to hand off most of the job. After experimenting with various firms (trying desperately to avoid the "Me Too" tree hackers), I decided to get Bartlett a try as my girlfriend who works for Burnaby indicated that it was that municipality's choice for doing major tree work. Bartlett are arborists, therefore they have proper training in how to trim and cut back trees in order to promote healthy growth (rather than creating a huge mess or leaving you with ugly stumps!). Their estimator came out (for free) and spent time with me while I talked about my philosophies in how I wanted the trees and hedges on my property to be maintained, and how selectively pruning trees to maintain certain boundaries was as much an art as it was a learned skill. I was also concerned that their should be careful of the various perennial plantings that were near the various trees and hedges they were to work on (meaning, don't crush or mangle them!). I was very pleased with the crew that came, they expertly worked on the various trees and shrubs, and the ground person did a very good job cleaning up as they went. They even came with a lift-truck in order to get at some hedges that were in an awkward position, but available from the street edge. Although they are not as inexpensive as some of the smaller one-man firms that run around dealing for cash jobs (that, no surprise, end up looking horrible and leave you with clean-up and collateral damage) you are getting excellent value for your money. Oh yeah, and they don't expect payment until the customer is happy with the job - which means an invoice in the mail for you, and if there are any problems, call them and they will deal with it before you pay. Outstanding. More...

a colleague recently asked if I knew of any good tree trimming services in the SF Bay Area. My wife and I have used Bartlett for the last 3 years, and they do solid work, though they are a little expensive.
