What Our Customers Are Saying
Working with Greg Portzline was outstanding. He is such a professional and was so helpful. He answered phone calls and accommodated our needs. We look forward to continuing a yearly program with Bartlett in keeping our property well maintained.
Kathy S. , Baldwinsville, NY
Always nice to deal with Rich, Matt, and the crew. Rich is always conscious of my budget limits and makes improvements within those limits. Matt with his crew have made my Magnolias the envy of neighbors. He has taken a Weeping Cherry and made a beautiful “real” tree.
Elizabeth C., Liverpool, NY
The Arborist Rep. was very thorough and helpful. Provided insight into some additional work that was worthwhile doing at the same time. Did not have an opportunity to meet any other crewmembers as we were away on the day this work was done.
JIm W. , Camillus, NY
Everyone I came in contact with was kind and professional. The quote was completed quickly and included options with no pressure at all. The administrative staff followed up on the notice of when the work would be done and the work was done beautifully and on time. I was not home when the work was done but was so happy with the results. I will definitely be calling on the Bartlett crew again.
Patti N., Baldwisnville, NY
Staff and representative were courteous, friendly, professional, competent, and efficient. They were also punctual. We are very pleased.
Joyce F., Baldwinsville, NY
I have dealt with Steven Blair on several occasions, and each time I felt he listened to me and what I had to say. I feel he takes a real interest in his clients. This is so important to me.
Debra T. , New Hartford, NY
Mike Gorham is a great help when called upon for advice. I enjoy our visits and appreciate his recommendations.
Tim C. , Marietta, NY
Caring, sincere, thorough, and pleasant.
Louise W. , Brewerton, NY
Very professional and polite. All our concerns were addressed with patience and knowledge. We will definitely have them take care of our trees in the future.
Donald D., Auburn, NY
We were very pleased with Kasey and the two gentlemen who did the actual pruning. Kasey answered all our questions in regards to the work to be done. He gave us pointers on the correct planting of a tree Hydrangea we recently acquired. The men also were helpful in guiding us to make good decisions when it came to the actual pruning.
Joyce S., Cazenovia, NY
Kasey and all the staff have been very professional and respond quickly to all questions and requests. The crew members do a great job and I am always confident in their work. In addition, they appear to follow all safety procedures, which is very important to us.
Craig M., Manlius, NY
Greg has been extremely helpful in the identification and correction of many landscape issues on our property. Greg readily provides information or uses Bartlett technical services to identify problems.
Mary Kay P., Oswego, NY
Your experience and competence shows. You made the process smooth. The three man crew were courteous, efficient, and left the place spotless. Great work.
Ken K., Auburn, NY
Rich is an excellent source of information and I very much like working with him.
Diane M., North Syracuse, NY
The work by the tree trimming crew was excellent. They allowed me the time to make some suggestions on some of the cuts. I appreciate Mike's expertise in providing guidance regarding the work that could be done and his third party perspective on how we could stabilize our mature Maple trees to extend their life rather than the only other option to cut them down.
Bobbie S., Marcellus, NY
Mike did a great job of explaining what was to be done and why it was necessary. I can say that the work was done as promised, on time, neatly, and courteously. The head man of the crew touched base with me each day to let me know what he was going to be doing and being sure he had answered any questions I might have. I have already given referrals to Bartlett Tree experts of people I know who may need work. Thank you for service done as promised, that seems to be rare these days. I would be happy to be used as a reference if you ever need it.
Deborah G., Auburn, NY
I have used Bartlett for years and I have been very satisfied. I have learned a great deal from Jason, the Bartlett Arborist. I see no reason to find another company for tree service.
Theresa S., Syracuse, NY
Mike Gorham does and excellent job. He makes good recommendations and is a pleasure to work with.
Daid W., Auburn, NY
We feel comfortable in calling our Bartlett Arborist Representative, Kasey, whenever we have a question. We trust the crew members who come and maintain the trees on our property.
John R., East Syracuse, NY
Rich Croft, my representative, has helped me with several issues and concerns on my property over the years. He has always been informative, conscientious, and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him and Bartlett to anyone with issues or concerns on their property.
Elaine S. , Liverpool, NY
Bartlett has done work for us several times and in every instance we have been impressed with their responsiveness and the quality of their work. Mike is extremely knowledgable, friendly, and professional. He explains his recommendations clearly and just loves talking about trees. We have used them for elective pruning of a few large Maples close to the house. Then we had to call them on a rather urgent basis when an early, wet snowstorm overloaded a Bradford Pear and split it down the middle, with the split trunk landing against our roof. They were very responsive and took care of the situation quickly. Most recently we have had them remove three large dead Pine trees. Access was tricky but they pulled the job off expertly with minimal impact on the surrounding landscape. We have found the work crews to be very competent and well trained. Their clean up after the job was meticulous. We feel very comfortable in recommending them highly.
Joseph M. , Skaneateles, NY
I am always very pleased by the expertise of the representatives who come to my house. They are personable, friendly, and helpful as well.
Marilyn S., Syracuse, NY
I was in a panic when I called because the tree that needed to be taken down was leaning on my neighbor's fence. The person who answered my call was very patient with me which was much appreciated. Two people I work with have also used Bartlett services.
Michele J., Syracuse, NY
Richard is always helpful when determining what needs to be done each year. It is a pleasure working with him. He also has the respect of his crew who work very hard at their jobs and leave the place like they were never here. That is why I use Bartlett every year.
Sandra G., Liverpool, NY
The consulting arborist provided a great deal of valuable input about the tree in question, as well as suggestions for management of the several Ash trees on the property. The crew that worked on the trees was agile, accurate, and frankly amazing. A very positive experience from the initial consultation right through to the actual work on our trees. Grateful to now know who to call for ongoing care of our trees.
Ken R. , Whitesboro, NY
I have been using Bartlett for a number of years. I get sound advice from a knowledgeable arborist. The crew members performing the work do their jobs well.
David S., Liverpool, NY
Steve was very informative and helpful. He explained exactly what was to to be done and why it needed to be done.
Greg H., Utica, NY
I am very pleased with Gregg our representative. He has been very thorough, professional, and very pleasant to work with it. Chris was the tech who fertilized our trees last week and was very courteous, professional, and attentive.
Jeanne G., Baldwisnville, NY
Steve Blair, who has been managing and supervising our trees for more than ten years does a fantastic job. The Bartlett crew is always friendly and efficient.
Richard W., Utica, NY
We would like to thank Bartlett for all their help during such a time of distress. Greg came to our home after three huge pine trees came down in our yard during the wind storm, calmed our fears, and restored our yard. It was a wonderful experience under the circumstances. We defiantly wiil recommend your company.
Sandy L., Syracuse, NY
Everyone is knowledgeable and skilled at what they do. You can guarantee that the job will be done well every time. I would recommend Bartlett to anyone.
Stan M., Syracuse, NY
We have had Steven Blair and the Bartlett Staff help us twice now to maintain two very beautiful, large trees on our property that we have owned sine 1992. Each time Steven Blair came we had concerns about our trees, and he gave such helpful information for us to make informed decisions about keeping them. They provide comfort and shade in summer and are really part of our 'home' and the feel of it. When we moved to this neighborhood, the first thing I loved were all the trees. We appreciate their professional work style, their timely replies, and explicit information and pricing choices. My neighbor said 'it was amazing' to watch their skill as they worked in one of our trees recently. I feel safer that we have taken care of our property with the guidance of such wise and nice people!
Allsion L., East Syracuse, NY
We just wanted to take a moment to thank Jason for advice on the removal of our giant Maple tree. The crew that cut down the tree did a wonderful job and were so pleasant to work with, they did just an amazing and precise job. It kept us and the neighbors entertained for most of the day. The young man who removed the stump also was great. Not that I expected anything less from Bartlett. Thank you again for all the consideration you have shown to us. Now we just have to ‘baby’ the Red Maple in the front yard.
Dick V., Syracuse, NY
Richard Croft was very knowledgeable on trees and informed me four trees treated for insect control were not Ash trees. This was key in getting money spent returned. Crew assigned to my project were great. Kept me informed of the progress and the total site was left very clean. Great job to all of the Bartlett Team.
Lester R. , Liverpool, NY
We have used Bartlett for many years. Tom Mullarney has been extremely helpful in maintaining our trees and plants. Your crews are always well trained and leave the yard clean when they have finished the job. We have recommended your firm to others.
Susan C., Manlius, NY
Mike Gorham is a wealth of information and graciously took the time to educate me about the Myriad trees and shrubs on my property. His recommendations have saved several of my aging trees and insect-infested shrubs. All the trees and shrubs on my property now not only look significantly better, but they are thriving. Every crew member has been courteous, knowledgeable, and completed the work professionally and in a timely manner. They even cut and stacked wood from trees that they trimmed. I am looking forward to working with the Bartlett Tree staff in the future. I know that my landscaping is in the best of care with them and thriving for years to come.
Bonnie D., Skaneateles, NY
We have had nothing but excellent service with your entire staff. Richard always responds quickly when we have any concerns. The crew that does the work are very polite and neat. They always cleanup completely when they are finished. I would always call Bartlett whenever we need something done.
Linda C., Liverpool, NY
Everyone I have had contact with, especially Jason Pieklik, has been prompt and courteous. I feel that Jason has given me good advice over the years and I appreciate his interest in making my property attractive. Work crews have always been polite, careful, and efficient. It's always a pleasure to have Bartlett employees working at my home.
Emily H., Syracuse, NY
Tom Mullarney is very knowledgeable, professional, and easy to work with. We had crews at our house on two separate occasions and all crew members did a great job. Very pleased with the work.

Marilyn S., Syracse, NY
Jason and his crews have been extremely helpful to us over the years, this year in particular. We sustained storm damage from heavy wet snows in March, needed two huge trees removed, and root spading of another for the installation of a new driveway in the spring. Today they were here for the annual trimming maintenance of a couple of trees. We truly appreciate them and all they do for us.

Michael S., Clay, NY
Jason has been great to work with and it is nice to know we have someone to rely on for our tree care. The crew did an especially good job of trimming the Hawthorne that had been damaged by the heavy wet snow storm. Jason warned us that it was going to look like a Charley Brown tree for a while, but it actually turned out a lot better than that.
Barbara B., Syracuse, NY
Rich is very knowledgable and professional. The crew members were curtious and hard working..

Now that the job has been completed, we would absolutely pass on those recommendations to others, you have made our property healthier, safer, and more beautiful. Thank you!

Extremely professional job from the start of the estimation process to completion of the work and billing.

I would hire Bartlett again without hesitation.
Robert B., Baldwinsville, NY
We love Tom for his expertise, good nature, and seemingly endless patience to address our seemingly endless questions about trees.

Great job pruning the European birch.
Patrick D., Manlius, NY
I have been so pleased with my relationship with Bartlett Tree Experts.
I have dealt with Jason Pieklik for a number of years and so appreciate his professionalism--his knowledge, his ability to assess the situation and give me good advice, to help me make decisions, to show that he cares about giving the best service and to see that I am happy with it.
Then, two more of your employees came to complete the tree work. Again, they were so knowledgeable, efficient, personable and from their expertise in dealing with this work, again helped me in making some decisions.
I think Bartlett Tree Experts is fortunate to have such excellence representing it and I am fortunate to have experienced this service. I certainly will continue using this service and will recommend your company to others. Thank you.
