What Our Customers Are Saying
Mr. Bill Truscott and Mr. Ronnie Kolwalski have been our arborists, and I cannot say enough positive about both of these gentlemen. Both men have worked very hard to save our trees, and I am most grateful for that fact. The young men who have been to our home to treat the trees have been very kind and perform their their jobs with perfection. There is no fooling around with these men, they do their job well, clean up, and move out. I am very impressed and pleased with Bartlett's service, and dedication to their passion.

The crew came this morning to clean up the big blue spruce. They did a wonderful job! The one gentleman said that he would write up the report with some recommendations that you would go over with us.They all said that the tree looked good! One of the crew even said that he not only remembered working on the tree before but also remembered my Dad.
Georgia H., Newark Delaware
I'm sure you are busy after the ice storm last week that took down so many trees. I just wanted to thank you for the great work by your crew a couple of weeks ago. The storm did no damage to the tree that had stood for 25 years because of you guys.
Ted B., Elkton MD
Bill was very informative on my tree needs and with answering all of my questions.

Have always been very satisfied with the jobs. Arborists are quite knowledgeable and I always learn from them. My trees have always returned to their healthy condition after treatments.
Donna H., Wilmington DE
The technician who serviced our property was extremely courteous, informative, and friendly. It was clear that he appreciated the opportunity to serve us and we, in turn, appreciated him. Wouldn't consider any other company to serve our tree needs.
Rick L., Wilmington, DE
Unfortunately, I have had another company service us, It was a terrible mistake in every way. With Bill Truscott being my"go to" person, this part of my life is a joy. His patience and throughness is greatly appreciated, as well as his many tips on how to make things last longer. Your crews are always quiet and very respectful. Both are great for business!!
Marilyn S., Wilmington, DE
The pruning that was completed yesterday on the arborvitae is perfect. The cherry tree was opened up to create better air circulation without changing the appearance, great job.
Carol M., Wilmington, DE
I always appreciate Mark's advice. The crew did a great job cleaning up, I can't wait to see the results of the pruning in the spring.
Jennifer L., Wilmington, Delaware
Staff was on time, courteous, knowledgeable, efficient, professional, and communicated very well.
Nicholas P., Wilmington, DE
I found the staff courteous, attentive, patient, and helpful!
Mark S., Wilmington, DE
The recent tree work by your guys was completed very much to our satisfaction. Dave and Matt are very professional and did an excellent job. They communicate very well and clean up everything. Thanks for the good work. The trees look very nice - amazing to me how good the white birch and red maple look after a serious haircut.
Bob B., Newark, DE
Bill did an excellent job of making sure that I understood his recommendations before agreeing to the work to be done. Also, he made sure I was up to date on when the crew would be here due to bad weather conditions. Dave and Gary did an excellent job of checking with me to make sure I agreed with the work to be done and they did a great job overall. Matt and Mark were each here for only one day, but did great work while they were here. In general, your crew did an outstanding job - courteous, professional, and helpful in every way.
Barbara H., Wilmington, DE
This is a first class operation! I am more than happy with the excellent professional, polite service I have been receiving&and my trees like it, too!
Susan S., Wilmington, DE
Your Bartlett team was superb! Peter Kingshill, who heads the Wilmington, Delaware office, was excellent in responding to our request to have our two Magnolia Grand De Flores pruned. He then walked through the woods and found several other things that required attention from exposing two root crowns, other major punning for the health of the trees, and trussing one tree near Dolphins Run with a fork in the trunk for the sake of safety.
The Bartlett crew of Dave Kowalski, Dave Cain, and Mark Ware were most professional and expert in what they did. The Magnolias now each look elegant with Dave's master pruning. With all the work I have done with DuPont, I was really impressed with their safety measures. For example, every time a truck was re-positioned, the wheels were chocked.
The equipment they used was first rate. And I was fascinated by the slingshot and climbing motor which took Dave up into a tree to reach what needed to be pruned so that it could be done in a way that the lawn was not hurt by having to bring a large bucket truck onto it.
Cal and Anne W., Wilmington, DE
Mark always responds promptly to our questions with expertise and good advice. The work is always excellent, and I would recommend them to anyone who needs tree work.
Brett L., Wilmington, DE
Mark Tabibian and the crew who came to our house could not have been more helpful and their proactive approach is reassuring. Although it has little to do with their effectiveness or skill, the crew most recently as well as those who have come in the past seem remarkably cheerful and happy to be doing their jobs. Unusual today.
Andrew E., Wilmington, DE
These people are highly professional! They do an excellent job and they do it in a way that distinguishes them from any other service I have used. They are kind, cheerful, and responsive!
Susan S., Wilmington, DE
Just a quick note to let you know what a great job your crew did on 3/13/15 in trimming my trees, as well as the best clean-up we have ever had. I interacted quickly with the work crew and their respect was outstanding, and special mention for the leader of the crew who intelligently explained what had been done. Beginning with you who clearly presented a thorough plan with realistic prices, I am left with beautiful grounds and a seemingly reliable future with Bartlett Tree Experts. Thanks for stopping back in the afternoon to oversee what had been done and please pass this e-mail of appreciation to your supervisor.
Marilyn S., Newark, DE
All of your staff are very courteous and a pleasure to deal with. We are happy to be one of your customers.
Merritt H., Newark, DE
Mark is very knowledgeable and always responds promptly whenever we have a tree problem. The crew who did tree work for us were very efficient and considerate. They tried to minimize the damage to our yard while taking down a huge tree. We have worked with Mark and his crew for many years and have always been pleased with their work.
Shirley F., Wilmington, DE
Mark is the best! I've been a very satisfied customer for over 20 years. He always answers even my stupidest questions with patience and humor. Lynn M., Wilmington, DE
Pete Kingshill is wonderful to work with. The guys who did the work were courteous and efficient. Peggy S., Wilmington, DE
Arrived at the time expected. Everyone was polite. A walk through occurred before the job was started and after completed. Wendy K., Wilmington, DE
The crew were super in their thoroughness in the tree and on the ground. No dead pieces have fallen from the tree in subsequent wind events. I was impressed by their safety measures and with the efficiency with which they went about setting up for the work.The crew chief and ground guy responded cordially and informatively to all of my questions. I didn't have occasion to speak with the 3rd member. Roland R., Wilmington, DE
The garden committee is very pleased with the work completed at the front today. The trees look great and the crew was extremely professional. Both Jen and I were impressed. We feel the neighborhood looks even more beautiful after the work completed today. Thank you. Kim, Whitaker Woods
Three cheers and a standing ovation to you! On behalf of the Ag Day Team, thank you so much for returning to Ag Day and sharing your knowledge and skills of tree care and proper climbing. It's always great to have you as a part of Ag Day, and we really appreciate your preparation, commitment, and excitement that you bring to the event. It was a pleasure working with you, and I sincerely hope that you enjoyed your time with us and will come back again next year. Again, a hearty thank you again for making Ag Day an incredible experience for everyone. Maya and the Ag Day Planning Team
Pete Kingshill is a wonderful partner of ours, both for the Alapocas Maintenance Association in our Wilmington neighborhood as well as for my personal tree needs. Someone who is very responsive, consistently follows through, and is just down right a very nice individual. His customer service skills are outstanding. Susan F., Wilmington, DE
Ronnie Kowalski could not have been more pleasant to work with. He was professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly. I felt confident he provided the right information regarding what would be best for my trees. The technician that applied the boost treatment was efficient, friendly, and competent. Bartlett staff provide a very positive experience for this worried homeowner. Thank you. Marie D., Wilmington DE
Your men did an absolutely perfect pruning of my trees and bushes yesterday. They never looked better. By the way, I think the headgear the men had on was impressive. Excellent protection all around. Ina C., Newark, DE
Pete and the crew were consummate professionals. My spouse is a DuPont scientist and as most people know, DuPont is extremely concerned with safety first and foremost. As soon as the gentlemen arrived and we saw all the safety gear, we knew we definitely made the right choice. Alina S., Wilmington, DE
They completed the work planned for that day efficiently and quickly, showing that they know their business. Peggy G., Wilmington, DE
Fantastic customer service. Always prompt and courteous with detailed understandable explanations for recommended actions. The two-man crew who just pruned my birch tree was extremely neat, clean, and efficient with the work. Have relied on my friendly Bartlett rep for almost 20 years. Jim M., Wilmington, DE
Job was cutting down two large tree with limp overhanging the roof. The crew did a careful job and protected my house and the septic system next to the trees. Second time I've used Bartlett for a difficult job and will use again. Mark Tabibian ensured the right crew was surveyed and the right crew and equipment picked for the job. Lewis W., Wilmington, DE
My Bartlett Rep. Mark Tibbian is great! He returns calls promptly, comes out to the property to discuss work to be done, and is very knowledgeable about the trees and shrubs in our area. Makes good suggestions, but does not "over reach" in what needs to be done. Crews are good and follow through with work to be done. Mary L., Wilmington, DE
Mark Tabibian is the best. He is the #1 arborist in Delaware. Christoper L., Wilmington, DE
Working with Ronnie was great - professional and very informative. I was at work when the tree removal crew came, but my neighbors said they were great. I met the man doing the stump removal and he was very courteous and handled the audience of several fascinated neighbors with grace! Nikki M., Wilmington, DE
The professional service began with the evaluation and estimate and concluded when the job was completed. All representatives and crew members were totally professional, friendly, and courteous. Robert C., Wilmington, DE
Very friendly, courteous, and informative! Troy H., Wilmington, DE
Pete and his crew, Andrew and Edward, did an outstanding job! I could not be more pleased. I'm very impressed with your company and will recommend you highly to everyone I know. Amy D., Wilmington, DE
I would like to tell you how pleased I am with the job you did for me August 10th. I had to take the day off from work and scheduled Delmarva Power to shut off the power. It would have been an extreme inconvenience to me if we had to reschedule it. Edward and Andrew were extremely professional and did a fantastic job in the rain. They took great care to protect my grass and also did a thorough job cleaning up. They deserve a large bonus! I was also very pleased with your frequent contact and e-mails. Thank you again. You will get a lot more business from me and my neighbors. It's rare to find such quality service. Please pass this on to Andrew and Edward's supervisors. Amy D., Wilmington, DE
The crew did an excellent job in removing the large elm that overhung part of my house. Absolutely no damage to anything and a very thorough cleanup job. Damage to the lawn from the heavy equipment that was necessary to do the job was also minimal. Just need to have the large stump removed (scheduled for later) to complete the job so I can do some lawn renovation. Overall, very happy with the truly professional service provided at all levels, from estimate to removal. Robert C., Elkton, MD
I was very impressed on the tree work that the Bartlett Team did on the tree in front of our house. They were there two times, first taking down a fallen large branch and the second time cleaning up extra wood on the rest of the tree and installing a wire to make sure that no other branches would break off. They were very professional, safe in what they did, and cleaned up so well one would never know they had been working in the area. Thank You Bartlett! Bruce D., Newark, DE
On behalf of everyone on the Ag Day team, I just wanted to thank you and everyone that helped out with the tree climbing demonstration. It was a great addition to the exhibitors and demonstrations we normally have and turned out really well! I worked at the entertainment stage all throughout Ag Day and had people asking me during the day when and where the tree climbing was, so based on that I could tell people were interested.
The demonstrators were very knowledgeable and friendly, adding exactly to the type of atmosphere we want at Ag Day. I know for a fact we are interested in having you return next year and do a similar demonstration. We were all extremely pleased with the result and if there are any ways to improve for next year, we on the Ag Day committee are willing to help with those changes. So again, thank you for making Ag Day 2012 such a hit and hope you can be apart of Ag Day 2013! Thanks again!! Jessica Nimmerichter,
2012 Ag Day Entertainment and Education Committee
I received outstanding service from Mark, Gary, Matt, Mike, and Andrew. Mark followed up on our year-earlier discussion at just the right time. He impressed me as very knowledgeable and honest, thus making me feel comfortable in moving ahead with extensive tree removal work without taking time to get other quotes. He worked closely with the other crew members. I was particularly impressed with the safety check he went through with the crew before work started, and how seriously the crew took this. Gary's skill, strength, and agility were amazing to me. He took down a hemlock and two cedars - all 60+ years old, very large, planted within inches of my house, and with branches overhanging the house - without once touching the house. He took down a huge gum tree - base diameter 3+ feet - growing between and over power lines, hollies, and a prized Japanese maple, without damaging any of them. He worked very quickly and efficiently, thus allowing Mark to reduce the charges from previously-quoted prices in some instances. Matt seemed to be always in the right place at the right time with the right equipment to assist Gary. Andrew and Mike were skillful in operating the Bobcat. All three worked hard, steadily, and fast. All the crew members were courteous and friendly. It was a pleasure to deal with them. Don K., Wilmington, DE
I just wanted to let you know that the job Dave Cain and Todd Kilgoe did on our property turned out very well. They were very professional and the yard looks great after their work. Rick J., Newark, DE
Very knowledgeable and professional. Not pushy! Viola M., Newark, DE
Fantastic work! Thank you!! Connie T., Newark, DE
Excellent job! On time as promised and did a great job! Burton P., Wilmington, DE
Everything is always great when Bartlett takes care of it! We love that everyone is so organized and efficient. Robert P., Wilmington, DE
GREAT JOB! Very Courteous and attentive! Julie O., Newark, DE
Crew reported damage and brought a replacement part!! Damage was very minor (old deck falling apart). Very polite. They even followed up prior to the service being done and afterwords. Regina T., Newark, DE
Bartlett has always provided good service and is why we have been a customer for 30 years. Pete Kingshill is very knowledgeable and in planning what we need to do to keep our trees looking great.
Robert W., Wilmington, DE
I thought the fellows worked smart and hard. I was very, very pleased. Dave Cain is a charmer, just easy to talk to. The the "climber" impressed the heck out of me too. Barbara G., Newark, DE
We just wanted to pass our thanks along to you and the crew. We are very happy with the job. Things look fantastic for the maples and birch trees now. Again, just wanted to make sure the thanks was passed along to all involved. Dave and Cindy R., Avondale, PA
Pete, Just wanted to let you know that Dave and Todd did an excellent job on trimming and thinning out the four trees you and I discussed and looked at. The holly looks very nice with a more uniform shape and the side cut back from the road doesn't look bad and will fill out in time. The cleaning up of the dead branches in the cryptomeria really improves the looks of that tree. Dave and Todd were very professional and communicated what was needed very well. I appreciate the job Bartlett did. Robert B., Newark,DE
