Great job pruning my Pin Oak and a very nice job with the clean up.
Allen H., Columbus, OH

I am very happy with the service and the pruning. After watching the operation, I understand why your costs are higher than the guys that knock on the door asking to trim my trees. I knew I wanted professionals to remove those large branches especially those that went over my neighbor’s new fence and over my roof. And those oak trees are quite large.
Peggy M., Columbus, OH

Todd did an awesome job pruning today. He took care of everything we talked about. He was very professional and efficient.

Mary R., Gahanna, OH

Bartlett was very helpful in giving me some advice about mulch around the trees and cutting problem limbs. They will be back to spray the Hemlocks in the back. I was very pleased.
Pam P., Columbus, OH

Very pleased with the results of the pruning but was sad to see the one tree go. The crew really watched out for each other so no one got hurt. We do not give out compliments very often but did to all of you. You all were very respectful of our property.
Steve H., Gahanna, OH

Called to complain, when Jason and Mac left there was nothing to do. You guys were wonderful, friendly, and professional. I was overly impressed with the safety precautions that you took while in the tree. Thank you for cleaning up the gravel and debris left behind by the curb restoration that was done recently. If ever you need a recommendation please give out my phone number.
Greg S., Pickerington, OH

Crew was very professional and everything was done to my satisfaction. Will reach out in the Spring for work in the back yard for additional pruning and maybe some removals.
Bill R., Dublin, OH

The crew was way above my expectations. They were excellent and my trees look great. They put down mats to protect my lawn, as it had rained the day before. Clean up was terrific. Very pleased with all the safety precautions they took. They were very polite and answered all our questions. At first I thought you were a little high on price, but now I feel I have gotten my money worth and more.
Sharon S., Columbus, OH

Todd did a great job with pruning the Cherry. Nick did great with the stump removal.
Linda W., Columbus, OH

Very happy with the result of the pruning. Will definitely reach out to Bartlett for any futures needs we may have.
Ron C., Pickerington, OH

I was thrilled to pull up today and see your guys here. Eric, Malcolm, and Todd were awesome, all the way around. They even dug up and moved my flowers. I could not believe they would take a few minutes to do that for me without me even asking them. They were polite, friendly, courteous, and wanted to make sure I was happy with everything. They are fantastic representatives of Bartlett.
Angie P., Hilliard, OH

The way the crew pruned my tree gave me beautiful views of my gardens and actually makes my house look better and bigger. I was just amazed at how they managed to get around in the tree. I also learned a lot, like how a beetle is spreading disease in the Oak trees. I am going to share what I have learned with my garden club and most definitely promote Bartlett Tree Experts.
Paula H., Worthington, OH

Maple tree looks great. The pruning work was exactly what we had hoped for.
Tim B., Columbus, OH

Very happy that the tree is gone and did not fall on my house.
Chadd H., Canal Winchester, OH

I want to commend Dan McCarthy, who gave us an estimate last Friday for some tree work. We have dealt with Dan several times, he is always courteous, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. But on Friday he exceeded our expectations. He arrived just as it began to rain heavily, and he walked through our back yard looking at the work we wanted to have done, getting soaked despite his umbrella, and remaining cheerful throughout.
Pat R., Columbus, OH

Pruning completed, I did not even know anyone was there the clean up was so good.
John H., Columbus, OH

Pruning was spectacular, I am very fastidious but could not stop with one compliment after another. Could not be happier even the neighbors are saying thank you.
Karen M., Dublin, OH

Pruning results looks great. I am very happy you did not take out too much.
Barbara O., Dublin, OH

The crew always does a good job pruning and definitely clean up after themselves. Dan is very knowledgeable and is always very responsive to our needs.
John M., Columbus, OH

Everything looks beautiful. I left and he had completed pruning the first tree and it looked wonderful, so I knew all the rest would too. He was a very nice man.

I was impressed with Brian and his professional manner. I look forward to receiving his proposal concerning work for my newly purchased property.

Great job with pruning and tree removal. Very professional and respectful. Everything was all that we hoped for and more. Will definitely recommend Bartlett.
Dan F., Columbus, OH

Nick was very patient, courteous, and available to us before the pruning that was performed. Wishing Nick all the best in your company, you have a good employee there. We also think Katy is an invaluable member of your team. She is kind, sharp, interested, and professional. It was Eric's amazing initial presentation about our condo community's white pines, his obvious love for trees, and excellent follow-up that secured you our business. He too is a fine representative of Bartlett.
Judy S., Columbus, OH

The Ash Tree that was pruned looks so much better. The crew did a great job and I will continue to use Bartlett.
Don R., Columbus, OH

Nicholas was very helpful. I will continue tree treatments and landscape advice. Already recommended Nick to the neighbor across the street.
Tom D., Dublin, OH

The pruning results look really good and remarkably very little disturbance with all the rain and it being so muddy.
Jane B., Columbus, OH

The crew did a fabulous job pruning and cabling our tree. I saw them raking the twigs from the river birch, this will surly make the start of mowing season easier on our mower. I was also glad that it took me a while to spot the cable.
Melanie R., Columbus, OH

Am tickled that you were able to come out so quickly. Jason and his crew did a great job. Really enjoyed working with Dan and will continue to use Bartlett for all future tree needs.

As the Grounds Supervisor for a Community College within an Urban setting, it is important to have a resource such as Bartlett Tree Experts available to us. With numerous trees within all stages of growth on our campus, safety, plant health, and curb appeal are all a continuous priority for our students, staff, and guests. Our Arborist Representative team of Eric Brownlee and Dan McCarthy, have a great understanding of our demographics, budgets, and funding processes. They are prompt in executing our requests for proposals and scheduling the work once a PO is issued, and they take the necessary amount of time needed to ensure expectations are being delivered once the crew is onsite.
Mark D., Grounds Supervisor for Columbus State Community College, Columbus, OH

The crew of three men arrived on time and immediately set up street cones and "work ahead" signs on our street. The foreman and I made a preliminary walk around our property going over each item on the work order. Each crew member was outfitted with all necessary safety equipment: helmets, safety glasses, ear protection, etc. The company had contacted utilities in advance so that gas lines, etc. had already been marked. This crew worked diligently the entire day with only a short lunch break. The foreman was especially skillful in working high up in the mature trees so that it was not necessary to drive the big "cherry picker" truck onto our property. At the end of the day, all our pruned trees were free of dead, diseased, and broken branches. Each tree had an excellent appearance and our home was free of dangerous overhanging branches. We highly recommend Bartlett Tree Experts…their company name matches their performance! Mary Jane E., Upper Arlington, OH

I went with Bartlett tree service because of their highly rated reviews on Angie's list. I called Bartlett and wanted first to get an estimate and I wanted to be at home the day of the estimate. Dan did respond to my voice mail in a timely fashion and quickly worked out a schedule to make sure I would be home the day of the estimate. Dan's estimate was very detailed and itemized, which I appreciated from a tree service in knowing exactly what they were going to do and how much each item would cost. The estimate was not the cheapest, but with the large trees on my property, I decided to go with Bartlett because they had the manpower, large equipment, experience, and knowledge to do the job that I wanted. Their employees were very kind and considerate of my property and did a nice job in cleaning up afterwards. To my surprise, they also brought in their machine to grind up my stump the same day. Roger R., Columbus, OH

Dan McCarthy is the ultimate professional--always on time, knowledgeable, principled, courteous, and communicates clearly and timely. Heather can be trusted to handle questions and billing issues the right way, the first time; and she always represents Bartlett professionally. Jason, Todd, and Rich are courteous ("yes, ma'am"), friendly, and work steadily and safely, leaving the work site spotless. Mike, whom I met for the first time recently, was also very polite, considerate, and completed the work he did in a professional manner. This entire crew has worked on our property over the last 10-15 years and I would not trust anyone else to do the work they do. Linda A., New Albany, OH
