Prepare trees for spring

After winter ends, your trees and shrubs will be working hard to establish spring growth. A soil test in early spring can help determine the precise nutrients needed for that growth, yielding a fuller canopy and vibrant, healthy foliage.

Schedule A Soil Test

Do not shake limbs to try to remove snow or ice

When you find your trees are bending or drooping as a result of ice or snow accumulation, your first instinct is probably to shake the branches or knock the weight off with a broom or something similar. This may cause worse damage or actually cause the branch to snap off. Stop right there! Please click on the link below for more winter weather tree tips.

Winter Weather Tips

It’s time to prune your trees and shrubs!

Autumn and winter are a great time to prune. When conducted during these seasons, pruning will often result in a vigorous burst of growth in spring. Find out why tree and shrub pruning is so important.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Friendly, professional crew. Always a pleasure to work with. Been a long time client, for one reason, you guys are the PRO's.
Pat F., Grand Rapids, MI

I wanted to thank you for bringing our blossoming Cherry tree back to life. We had you here to trim our other trees but when you saw the Cherry tree had a leaf blight, you recommended we treat them. The tree has had this for so long that I just thought the current condition was natural. What a difference, the tree did not drop its leaves early, it has many more cherries which the birds love, and it looks great. It was one of my favorite trees before and now it is even better.
Brenda S., Caledonia, MI

Everyone I had contact with was professional, very nice, and helpful. I would certainly recommend you to anyone I know who needs tree service. We were completely satisfied with the service. I think the tree will look so much better next summer.

Keith Hogan was outstanding, his explanation was very clear and direct, and even with a late add on the job was excellent. The administrative staff was highly courteous and helpful in contacting me regarding scheduling. The crew who worked with my spouse while I was at work were simply outstanding.

Scott Van Wyk is a good guy to work with, prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. I was not home to watch the crew trim my Pear tree and remove some limbs, but I'm very impressed with the results.

Brian always does a great job as our arborist, the work crew also did a fine job.

Brian is wonderful to deal with, he knows our yard and trees, is always very helpful. All the people associated with Bartlett are so nice and do an excellent job.
Margaret B., Grand Rapids, MI

Love Brian Hiemstra! Been working with him for years: courteous, knowledgeable, great sense of humor.
Marnie, Grand Rapids, MI

I had contracted for our larger trees to be fertilized, but started rethinking my decision and spoke with your service provider when he arrived. He confirmed that it would be a good idea to also fertilize some of our smaller, decorative trees. Consequently, he took care of that while he was here. I assured him I understood that there will be an additional charge, but I was most appreciative of him doing the work while he was already here. Thanks for instilling "common sense" service with your providers!
Ed & Sue, Ada, MI

For the two years I have worked with Bartlett, I have been impressed with their friendly attitude and their responsiveness to questions.
Margaret I., Ada, MI

I was impressed by the tree crew that did the work at my house. When they were done it was like they were never there! They were very courteous and swift.
Linda D., Grand Rapids, MI

The tree trimming was done perfectly and cleaned up without a stick left on the ground. Great work.
Karen B., Grand Rapids, MI

Wonderful staff--always professional, courteous, and efficient!
Tony F., Grand Rapids, MI

Wonderful staff, always professional, courteous, and efficient!
Tony F., Grand Rapids, MI

Scott Van Wyk and his crew are super, and a pleasure to work with. With big trees, there are always things to be done, and I believe big trees must be maintained, at least as a safety issue. I am very glad Scott and your company are there for me.
Pete W., Grand Rapids, MI

We were very pleased with Brian's initial consultation. He was knowledgeable, and his recommendations clearly took into account the health and well-being of the trees. The three people who did the work were efficient, courteous, and helpful.
John M., Grand Rapids, MI

Brian is always professional and is a knowledgeable consultant that I trust is giving me good advice.
James K., Ada, MI

I love working with Keith Hogan. He is professional, polite, and has a friendly personality. I trust his knowledge and expertise.
Lindy, Grand Rapids, MI

The Arborist that came to estimate the work, Ryan Bose, was clearly very knowledgeable. I very much appreciated his assessment of the health of our tree. The crewmember that did the field work was very careful, professional; and thorough. The fellow (Andrew) that did the liquid fertilizer application this morning (10/17) was also very careful, professional, and thorough. In general I was very pleased with all aspects of the work performed at our residence.
Bruce, Grand Rapids, MI

Brian has been wonderfully attentive to our very mature elm tree. We have appreciated his recommendations over many years. The crew who did the trimming/thinning last week was great, too. The tree looks rejuvenated!
Bill S., Grand Rapids, MI

Can't thank you enough...great job, so cleaned up that no one would know you were here!
Roger, Grand Rapids

Your tree removal crew was great! I could not be happier with the job they did and the cleanup after.
Bill A., Grand Rapids, MI

The after service cleanup was fantastic. I had zero work to do afterward. I am feeling much better about going into the winter season, knowing my tree is stronger to withstand the snow.
Susan R., Kentwood, MI

Your crew did a wonderful job protecting the windows on the nearby houses. I was impressed to hear that you put up wood to prevent window breakage from flying wood chips.
Pat B., Grand Rapids, MI

It was fun to watch how the guys work. Worked very carefully and safely. Cleaned up beautifully. Kristin, Grand Rapids, MI

Brian is super courteous and knowledgeable. I especially appreciate the care and consideration that went into the assessment. Laura, Grand Rapids, MI

Your company did a fantastic job removing all of our trees even though the harsh weather made the job brutal. It is definitely worth the higher price to get a professional company to do the work. Mike (along with Ryan) and his team were very professional in their work, communication with us, and protecting the neighbors yard from damage! If you ever need a recommendation about your company, please let me know. Robert R., Grand Rapids, MI

You are the most professional group I have ever worked with -- the entire Bartlett team are outstanding! Jim S., Grand Rapids, MI

As always, my representative Brian McKenzie was great answering all my questions and dealing with my many mind changes. I was not home when the crew did the work, but couldn't even tell they had been there except for the missing branches they were to cut. They always do a really good job. They work very safely which is important to me. Lynn F., Grand Rapids, MI

Bartlett is very easy to work with. You took time to make sure the details of the job were worked out before you ever came out to the house. Brian is great to work with and the crew that came to the house took time again to make sure we knew what was happening and answer any questions. We would never worry about Bartlett doing work at our home, the project will be done right. The company's follow through is great! Margo Z., Comstock Park, MI

Brian was fabulous. He explained things very well, answered all questions, and gave us realistic options for our tree. Nate showed up first the day of and was just wonderful. Again, very nice and explained, asked questions, and really made us feel involved in the process. The other gentleman that was with Nate was equally as good and professional. The free consult was great. Gave us a 'feel' for the company and made us feel comfortable in the decision we had to make. And we had others give consults - they made us feel like there were no options and we needed to make a decision NOW. You guys are great! Tricia R., Wyoming, MI

Good communications and follow-up from beginning to end. Staff was up front about what would be required for tree removal and chipping, so there was no great surprise when they had to drive the truck and chipper across my lawn. However, they were very careful to minimize the impact to the lawn, and did a great job overall. Tom L., Grand Rapids, MI

All were knowledgeable and very personable. The trees are improving and would also want to thank you if they could speak. Thanks for a good job. Bill J., Alto, MI

Ryan and the trimmers who came to our home were knowledgeable, thoughtful, and patient. Also, they were willing to help us know more about our trees and how to keep trees healthy. A very useful and satisfactory experience. Jim H., Norton Shores, MI

We have worked with Brian McKenzie for many years and have always found him to be very professional and knowledgeable. He listens to our concerns and his suggestions and tips have always been helpful. Whether it has been a few small trees or very large trees, the crew members have been diligent about their work and left the job sites in good condition. The office personnel are courteous, professional, and a pleasure to work with. Tom G., Rockford, MI

I really appreciate Scott. He is always helpful and supportive. He is very knowledgeable on a wide range of issues relating to trees. The crews that spray and trim are also excellent. Robert P., Grand Rapids, MI

We have been extremely pleased with your wonderful service. Everyone we have dealt with has been so helpful, professional, and prompt. Extremely impressed with your level of service. Thank you so much. Brian D., Grand Rapids, MI

I have recommended your services to others on our neighborhood Google site. I really appreciate all of the good service we have had over the years -- Thank you! Rick H., Grand Rapids, MI

I would love to refer your company to anyone I may know who is needing an expert. Ryan exceeded our expectations with his attention to detail and compassion for our trees. It is comforting to know that they are in good hands because some of them have very strong sentimental value that cannot be replaced. Theresa W., Grand Rapids, MI

The guys did a fabulous job. The tree looks great and they left the yard looking even better than when they started. I am telling everyone to use Bartlett if they want a great job done. Donna, Grand Rapids, MI

Your team did a fantastic job on our sycamore. I appreciate that they let my neighbor know what they were doing as well. Someone asked me, "Bartlett? Are they very expensive?" I said, "They're not cheap, but they are the best and I wouldn't use anyone else even if they were less expensive," When my children are sick I get them the best care possible, don't even think about the cost. Same with my trees. Thank you. Susan W., Grand Rapids, MI

The guys that decorated our tree were incredible. They were very courteous, neat, decorated the tree and ran the cords like they would do for their own home. I cannot say enough about the staff that were at our home, this is rare in the service industry. I would recommend you to anyone in need of tree care. Gerri N., Grand Rapids, MI

I have dealt with Bartlett for many years based upon a recommendation I received from our landscape designer. Since that decision I have not been disappointed with any facet of their services. All of their representatives from office staff and sales through service personnel have been cordial and above all, professional. Their tag line, “Safety, Above All Else”, is not just lip service, but rather practiced to a very high level. We have had several complicated tree situations which required specialized equipment and protocol. All have been handled with the utmost of care. I trust our arborist needs to no one else. Scott S., Grand Rapids, MI

I can only say that the Bartlett people I've dealt with have all been polite and efficient. I look forward to working with you in the future and I would definitely recommend your company. I would like to mention that I have spoken to a woman in the office who was so helpful. I thought I hadn't been billed for something and she checked it out immediately. I loved the guys who climbed the TALL pines and trimmed them. Last of all, thank you for your attentiveness. I've been very pleased with your service. Tell your boss I recommend that you all get big raises! Nancy M., Fennville, MI
