What Our Customers Are Saying
Ryan was friendly and knowledgeable. He provided clear and good advice. His team carried out the job exactly as agreed and cleared up completely after themselves.
Guy B., Charlottesville, VA
The members of The Madison Garden Club owe a great debt of gratitude to you for the very fine Tree Pruning Demonstration and morning of work donated to us. It was a very hot Wednesday, and we were not sure how it would go due to the heat. But, at the end of the morning, all of us felt that we had indeed experienced a high-level tree pruning class, where we learned by watching and helping to make decisions about growth of branches that would be removed from the Flowering Crabapple Tree in the garden at Madison County High School. I have checked the tree this week, and it seems quite happy with reduced size. At the end of the day, one of our members said, “I thought I knew something about pruning, and what I learned was that most of what I thought I knew was wrong." Another member who has worked in the tree and plant business for many years, stated that she could not believe that you would be so generous with your time and skills that will benefit us so much. We have never had the level of educational experience that Mr. Walker provided and at no cost to us. To have the grinding of the large quantity of branches and their removal from the school grounds so promptly was an extra special benefit to us. As President of the Madison Garden Club, I am personally grateful to you for the very professional introduction of yourself, explaining the way that you came to be in the business of caring for trees, and the well-illustrated equipment along with explanation of why and when each is used was most beneficial. The safety rules and explanation of importance of always having safety the number one priority when doing this kind of work should never be omitted from such a demonstration. I am also personally pleased to have been able to introduce you to some of our garden club members, as you have been our go to person for tree care on our home property for several years. It is my hope that some Madison Garden Club members will contact you whenever they have a need of expert tree care.

We are always happy to see a Bartlett service man.

Everyone is always patient in answering my many questions.
Virginia M., Charlottesville, VA
Thank you for Bartlett’s immediate response to our downed Elm limb on Monday. We appreciated your inspection visit, especially when I went out to clip some Hellebores seed pods, I was amazed at how careful your folks were to minimize further damage even to many small or recently planted items. We are very grateful for all of the work.
Bobbi and Lewis B. , Charlottesville, VA
James was very helpful and took plenty of time to decide with us what should be done. The crew was courteous, knowledgeable, and left the site very clean.
Ginny Z., Charlottesville, VA
Dealing with Bart has always been a pleasure. He is so knowledgeable and great to work with. Crew members were efficient and so neat.
Stew T., Waynesboro, VA
I was pleased with Bart's intel of what needed to be done to our tree to solve the issue. All executed with appropriate pruning while leaving the shape and integrity of our tree. I look forward to having Bart back in the spring to take another look at our Japanese Maple's growth and success.
Tim P., Harrisonburg, VA
We had a huge Dawn Redwood that we loved but the roots were destroying our yard and starting to buckle our sidewalk. We contacted several companies regarding removal of the tree and grounding out the stump. Bartlett responded quickly and had the best price. They showed up on the date and time that they were supposed to and did a fabulous job. The young men that ground out the surface roots went beyond what we had expected. They were courteous and did an awesome job. We definitely recommend Bartlett and should the need arise will most assuredly use their services.
Anne G., Charlottesville, VA
The guys finished yesterday and as always they did an excellent job with a tough project. Thank you for responding so quickly, I will try to give you more than a 24 hour notice. Look forward to working together again in 2019.
Lester W., Charlottesville, VA
So impressed with this company and all of the people we interacted with. Michael was extremely knowledgeable, honest, thorough, and professional. He diagnosed our fungal problem before the samples were taken for analysis, and was correct in his initial assessment regarding our laurels. Will be using Bartlett again in the future.
Carol D., Earlysville, VA
I appreciated the man who sprayed and knocked on my door to let me know he was here. I had a couple of questions, all of which he answered.
Elaine O., Charlottesville, VA
We are very happy to have Dylan Kerl as our representative. He is punctual, polite, and knowledgeable. We hope to continue to do business with Bartlett because of him.
Joe & Susan S., Lexington, VA
It is always a pleasure to work with Michael Abbott. I was concerned about how many plants might be harmed given the location of the work, I was amazed at how very well all of them came through the day. I have always been impressed by how thorough the cleanup is.
Edith M., Charlottesville, VA

Cannot recommend Bartlett enough. They always do stellar work and so friendly. Guy just came back out to cut up the tree they felled and offered to give us free firewood off his truck.
Jenee L., Ruckersville, VA
The analysis, the work done, your crew, and the follow-up has been very satisfactory. Thanks for the good job.
Marilynne E., Stanardsville, VA
Bartlett could not be more professional, knowledgeable, and friendly.
Libby W., Charlottesville, VA
Very knowledgeable and professional. Trees look great.
Rae S., Charlottesville, VA
I showed the crew man a broken limb on a young maple, just to ask his advice. He immediately turned his attention to the limb, went to his truck for a pole saw, and removed the broken limb as well as trimming some leafy overgrowth that was weighing down other branches. He cleaned it all up, wow, all that and polite too.
Kelly K., Charlottesville, VA
If you want a job done right, these are the men to ask for.
Joan R., Charlottesville, VA
James Walker is a delight to work with. Always responsive, thoughtful about his recommendations, and respectful of my budget.
Robert A., Charlottesville, VA
Michael always goes above and beyond and his knowledge is without equal. Ray is such a nice man. He made sure he knew where every boxwood was and was unflustered by the difficult job at hand on such a hot day. Hats off to them both.
Fran B., Charlottesville, VA
Excellent, courteous, friendly, professional, extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful, and they point out places of concern. We enjoy having Bartlett to call on and depend on for spot on work.
Christine R., Charlottesville, VA
Everyone who I have dealt with at Bartlett is absolutely first-rate. Jason and his crew were extremely courteous and did excellent work, and Bart is great to work with. This is my second experience with Bartlett, and I will definitely be back.
Chris C., Waynesboro, VA
Your crew did a terrific job of taking care of our trees. They were friendly and supportive of our needs.
I was concerned, in advance, about the work and actually hoped my beau would be the one home. However, I was home and I couldn't be happier that it worked out that way. The crew spoke with me about the plans for the day, our concerns, and requests. Throughout the day, they treated our property and questions with the utmost professionalism. They exhibited great care in accessing the trees. It was evident that the crew was knowledgeable, and cared about their work. I am sure we care about our landscape as some people care about their pets. It couldn't have been easy for your crew to meet our expectations but they exceeded them.
N. P., Charlottesville, VA
We are extremely pleased with the work and cleanup your crew did in our yard and would recommend your company to anyone.
G. C., Charlottesville, VA
I always recommend Ryan and Bartlett Tree Experts to my friends and neighbors.
C. M., Charlottesville, VA
I always enjoy talking to Michael Abbott about the tree work we need done. He is very knowledgeable and very helpful in setting priorities and planning for future work.
J.F., Charlottesville, VA
Michael Abbott and his crew were very professional and courteous. Upon arrival at my house all of the crew came to the front door and introduced themselves. This level of professionalism is uncommon and much-appreciated!
K. P., Ivy, VA
I was pleased by how they were able to get to the back of our house in their truck with essentially no damage, for how they cleaned up afterwards, and for their keeping to the appointment time.
S. S., Charlottesville, VA
Bart McDowell and crew did an outstanding job. He has been helping me with my Bradford Pear trees for a number of years and we have not lost a limb during any snow or wind storms since. The crew comes in, does their job well, and leaves no mess behind. Thank you for the level of professionalism that Bartlett Tree Experts offers.
M. C., Stuarts Draft, VA
Great staff. I had been with an individual tree man, thinking that Bartlett would be more expensive. Boy, was I ever wrong. Thanks for great work at a reasonable price, done quickly and efficiently.
F. W., Charlottesville, VA
Great staff. I had been with an individual tree man, thinking that Bartlett would be more expensive. Boy, was I ever wrong, wrong, wrong. Thanks for great work at a reasonable price, done quickly and efficiently.
F.W., Charlottesville, VA
Just want to drop you a note to say that your crew did a fantastic job on Monday. I was left with the hunch that they must have been boy scouts in their younger days as they left our property cleaner than they found it. I specifically want to acknowledge Dylan's involvement. In addition to providing this professional service, it seemed his ultimate goal was to see that I was satisfied with their work. He answered any questions willingly and offered to show me any work they had finished. He trimmed some small branches that I had neglected to mention to you. He found a creative solution to burying the rod by the poplar tree so that one would not even know the ground had been touched. Employees like Dylan are few and far between. SP, Charlottesville, VA
I was impressed by the professionalism of the entire Bartlett crew. They were friendly and courteous, safety-conscious, and completed the job to our complete satisfaction. We had both a tree-climbing team and a bucket truck team. Each team of two had an experienced and less experienced worker teamed together. The more mature workers took their mentorship role very seriously, especially the one guiding a less experienced tree climber. He was focused on his task, despite the audience of my young children peering through the windows at him. A great coach, he was informative, encouraging, and unhurried in his task on teaching the skills needed to safely complete the job. I am very impressed with your company and will be using it again. Thank you. SZ, Crozet, VA
We absolutely continue to be completely satisfied with the services provided by Bartlett. Not only the expert quality of the workmanship and care taken, but the virtually immediate response to our needs. We have unfortunately experienced fallen trees - numerous times - due to storms. Bartlett has been so accommodating in sending our work crews at off hours to clean debris off our home and property. We have nothing but praise and satisfaction for the work, service, and relationship with Bartlett. Michael Abbott is a gem to work with as have been previous reps. The workers are so "good" at what they do -- thank you and "bravo!!!" Mr & Mrs. T., Charlottesville, VA
Your team was exceptionally polite, efficient, and professional. We are very pleased with the work they did. Thank you so much. Michelle F., Charlottesville, VA
They were all terrific! The work crew was highly skilled, courteous and did a great job. Having Ryan come out to "check up" on things was an added bonus. We continue to be VERY impressed with the work Bartlett does. Thanks. Ron B. Charlottesville, VA
As always, we were VERY impressed with the work done on Dec. 14th. The crew that did the work was friendly, polite, and very professional. Appreciated Ryan coming out to "check up" on things as well. On a scale of 1 - 10, the work done was a 18!! Many thanks! R.B., Charlottesville, VA
I am a maintenance gardener and use Bartlett on all my properties. I LOOOOOVE the Bartlett crew. They have responded to emergencies promptly, even on a Sunday (that was Ryan Wilkins); the work done has been very professional and they always do a nice job leaving everything neat and tidy; they are polite and courteous and very responsive to the clients' needs; they always remember to be careful when spraying so as to not endanger my clients' children and pets; and they take very good care of the plants. I feel very comfortable recommending them to my clients. At first I always made sure I was onsite when they worked but have come to realize that I don't need to be there because they are so professional, careful, and considerate.
Thank you for creating such a good company and for having reasonable rates. It is such a comfort to me to have Bartlett do the IPM and tree work at my properties. Also, I just love your NC staff and always enjoy seeing them at the fall workshop you provide for us for FREE. Thank you for being so generous. V.C., Charlottesville, VA
The trees and shrubs that were tended to in our yard look fabulous! Many thanks to you and your team for doing such an excellent job. Michelle M., Charlottesville, VA
I just want to say how pleased I am with the team that took down the five dead trees in my yard. Not only were they professional they were also fun. As they probably told you, the tree on the right front was cracked up high so they had to bring it down whole instead of cutting by chunks. They told me they may accidentally take out one of my Butterfly bushes, but they were able to bring that big tree down between two Butterfly bushes that were probably about 2-3 feet apart. Very impressive. They also did a wonderful job of keeping the grass in good shape. You can hardly tell they were here. Again, thanks to a wonderful team for a job well done. Lisa F., Charlottesville, VA
I want to let you know that the guys that came to our house last Friday for the tree/shrub work were superb!! Nice guys, conscientious, and considerate! I was amazed to see that tree disappear without mess or fuss. And they did it all in the pouring rain. We are very pleased with the results – exactly what we wanted.
Thank you for a job well done. I will call on Bartlett in the future I’m sure. BJM, Charlottesville, VA
