Reducing Failures and Defects

Managing trees to reduce the likelihood of failures does not begin when a tree grows old; structural pruning of young trees provides a strong framework that will resist stress from storms later in the life of the tree. By providing direction to young trees, many defects can be prevented that require premature removal or more extensive treatment later in the plant's life.

It's Almost Time to Treat for Apple Scab

Apple scab is caused by the fungus Venturia inaequalis which infects leaves, petioles, and fruit of its host. Initial symptoms appear as olive-green, sooty spots on leaf blades and petioles on young, developing foliage. Click below to schedule an appointment today with your local arborist.

What Our Customers Are Saying

The Bartlett staff is and continues to be very well informed and shares knowledge with our homeowners. Exceptional and professional service.
Deb S., Edina, MN

Nate was prompt, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. The rest of the crew were courteous and provided me just the right amount of information before and after the job. They took care of a difficult job very quickly, and left the yard spotless.
Sharon A., Plymouth, MN

We continue to be extremely impressed by Jon Heaton's deep knowledge, attention to detail, readiness to answer questions, and thoughtful approach. He is the best of the three or four Bartlett arborists with whom we have worked over the years. The tree removal crew directed by Nels carefully executed a tricky removal and left our property cleaner than when I do yard work.
Bradley C., Burnsville, MN

Very friendly and accommodating.
Gerry B., Bloomington, MN

Michael is always very helpful.
Pamela V., Minneapolis, MN

I always get good advice, and then I receive excellent service when the work is done.
Leslie H., Wayzata, MN

My service representative is wonderful.
Hannelore B., Edina, MN

The crew was great. They did a fantastic job especially regarding cleaning up the site.
Kathleen S., Minneapolis, MN

Michael was terrific in making recommendations that were in the interest of the health of the tree and the aesthetics of the site. He was also generous with his time when I wanted to talk through a modification in our original plan. Very open and timely in his responses. A terrific success.
Martha and John C., Minneapolis, MN

Everyone was courteous and they did a wonderful job. Thank you all.
Gloria W., Edina, MN

We appreciate Erik Paulsen's expert opinion about our trees.
Angela L., Edina, MN

Mike Van Dyken is fabulous. He is very well educated in his field and is such a nice person to work with. The crew has worked beyond expectation. The tree pruning and shrubs have never looked finer. I am so pleased with the work done so far. I used to use another tree service, they were not at all reliable and did not perform the work as expected. So, I am grateful to have found Bartlett.
Lauren B., Eagan, MN

Wonderfully cooperative and talented staff.
Carol L., Plymouth, MN

Michael has been great, he arrived shortly after the crew, provided clear instructions, and ensured that I understood what and how everything would work that day. The crew was conscientious and focused. They put plywood over my bay windows to avoid any damage and placed safety cones everywhere to alert people. They were also acutely sensitive to anyone approaching the house, shutting off chainsaws and stopping the cherry-picker. They could not have been more courteous when speaking with me and they were very thorough in removing debris. I have had Bartlett perform major tree work three times in the last year or so and each time I have been extremely satisfied with the work. These are people who genuinely love trees and it shows.
John R., Minnenapolis, MN

We enjoy working with you Mike. We appreciate your explanations for the work that needs to be done for our trees.
Barb E., Minnenapolis, MN

Assessment of needs was very thorough. Crew was not rushed and very friendly.
Mary M., Bloomington, MN

I have had many contacts with various members of their staff both in person and over the phone. They are all very knowledgeable about the task. No inquiry is too simple.
Carol M., St Paul, MN

I had a positive experience with Bartlett and will most likely use your service in the future. Thank you for doing a great job.
Gloria W., Edina, MN

The level of professionalism was astounding.

Sarah S., Mendota Heigts, MN

Erik has been great to work with. He helped us out by taking down a tree that was in a tough spot, and the semi-annual nutrient treatments have made our two Pines look great.
Andrew D., Edina, MN

Our arborist, Nate is excellent.
Steve and Twyla M., Mpls, MN

Joe M., St Paul, MN

Nate does a great job, always so friendly, helpful and patient with all my questions. He is wonderful to work with.
Diane M., Champlin, MN

The staff at Bartlett is always courteous and knowledgeable. I especially appreciate working with Jonathan Heaton in the Minnetonka office. He is knowledgeable, responsive, and always makes sure the jobs on my property are done correctly. He is a big reason that I continue to work with Bartlett to help maintain my trees and shrubs.
Nancy S., St Paul, MN

Everyone was great and easy to get a hold of if there were questions. One stump to be ground down was missed, it was under ground cover. When we called it was taken care of immediately.
Mary Jo G., Plymouth, MN

Jon Heaton provides exceptional service. He is thoughtful, attentive, and quick to respond.
Bradley C., Burnsville, MN

Always pleased to work with Erik. His suggestions to treat for apple scab has significantly increased the beauty of the bloom and general health. Bartlett is efficient to their scheduling and considerate reminders before any treatments.
Tom and Vicki R., Eden Prairie, MN

Great value for the quality service provided. The Flowering Crabs look fantastic.
Robert P., Minnetonka, MN

Everyone I have dealt with at Bartlett has been very professional and courteous. I always get a quick response. The team that was here doing the tree trimming were awesome. They made several treks through very deep snow between the trees and my house to get my opinion and make sure I was happy with how things looked before they left.
Denise W., Lakeville, MN

I trust Nate's advice, recommendations, and professionalism. I know his crew will be careful of my property and get the job done completely and correctly. They always do a great job of cleaning up the yard afterward. I trust that Nate is not recommending unnecessary work also.
Shawn C., Plymouth, MN

Very pleased with the work the Bartlett crew provides. I also noticed the crew checked other trees on my lot. One tree had a broken branch from the wind this past fall and it was removed. Thank you.
Trudy R., Minnetonka, MN

The crew did an excellent job grinding out the stump.They went much further in providing service, they cut away additional turf around the stump. After leveling off the area where the stump was ground they raked and sprinkled grass seed, more service than one would expect.
Rich P. , Plymouth, MN

The staff was unbelievable. Nate was fantastic to deal with as we kept tweaking what we wanted. The crew doing the work was unreal. If we had not been at the house watching them we would have never known they were here. The lawn was perfect when they left and the grindings from the stump were left in the stump space.
Jesse L., Maple Grove, MN

The Bartlett staff is always polite, professional, knowledgeable, and does the right thing for the customer.
Vicki K., Minnetonka, MN

Your crew is terrific. They are professionals that know what they are doing and it speaks volumes that the same individual that trimmed our trees two years ago is still with you. He remembered the maple tree out back and what the long-term plan was to trim it. Thanks very much.
Mike B. , Eden Prairie, MN

Erik is always very responsive and follows up on site with the crew.,
Liz T., Chanhassen, MN

Bill Masterman has been our arborist for many years and I feel confident in his expertise. When I talk to him, he instantly knows my property and its foliage, which adds a level of trust I have in his work.
Susan B., St. Louis Park MN

Bill Masterman is a delight to work with. He arrives on time, knows what he is doing, and talks in language which is easy to understand. The crew that trimmed our tree could not have been better. Tree trimming is a messy job, but they cleaned up as best as possible once the work was done.
Becky N., Minneapolis MN

Bartlett is always professional and finishes the project on time as promised.
Mark S., Bloomington MN

I have found all the Bartlett staff very courteous and helpful at all times. It has been a pleasure working with all of them and I know I speak for many others that live here. Nate is always willing to go out of his way for me and respond to my calls quickly which I also appreciate.
Karen G. , Plymouth MN

The guys were very courteous and knocked on my door when the work was finished to make sure I was happy with everything.
Bev S., Tonka Bay MN

The crew was courteous to our neighbors. They needed to be on their property to work on our tree. They informed them of what they needed to do and cleaned up their space afterward.
Kris W., Edina MN

All were fantastic and so professional.
Sue Ann P., Mound MN

My trees look beautiful. The trimming of the trees opened up the yard so much that there is more sunlight. I wished I had requested the trimming earlier in the season. Great job!
Trudy R., Minnetonka MN

Very knowledgeable. Rather than sell, they seem to have a true concern to have my trees be the best they can be. We have one tree that we thought could never be saved. Not out of the woods yet but it is coming back. The city arborist even thinks the same. Thank you Bartlett!
David M. , Mahtomedi MN

Great job trimming our front yard trees, removal, etc. The crew huddled before starting our project, so the entire crew was on the same page as our quote/request. The staff was professional and everything we communicated for our quote was completed. Very satisfied! We previously had used a tree trimmer who was knocking on doors in our neighborhood for business. The quality of work was night and day difference from him and Bartlett! Thanks guys. Mike H., Plymouth, MN

The crew was very helpful and courteous. Bill is always most informative. Thanks your great service. Dennis & Nancy M., Bloomington, MN

Erik is always prompt with communications, accommodating, and dependable. Ann D., Minnetonka, MN

A pleasure to conduct business with such knowledgeable staff. Sandy M., Corcoran, MN

The team onsite was very professional, safety-aware, and skilled in the removal of my large willow tree. Jeremy J., Plymouth, MN

They are professional, very responsive to my needs, but not "pushy." Your guys are good. Bill L., Edina, MN

Mark and the crew were very professional, courteous, and responsive to our needs and preferences. I was particularly impressed that the crew members repeatedly checked to ensure the job was being done to our satisfaction. Leland C., Minneapolis, MN

Your organization did a great job at walking me through our yard, pointing out trees needing pruning, and what would be pruned. Once your crew was on-site, the work was done quickly and the clean-up was first rate. Thank you for the excellent service. Peter S., Eden Prairie, MN

Love them all!!! Great service. Bill came out on a Sunday to assess the situation and had a crew here on Tuesday. They were flexible with the stump removal, allowing me time to remove some plants around the tree. The first thing the crew chief said to me was that he was sorry for my loss. That was very nice. Meredith L., Minneapolis, MN
