Chase Giebner and his crews have been great. Chase is knowledgeable and shares that in a meaningful and helpful way. We are very glad to have professional advice to care for our trees because we value them so much. We will continue to regularly use Chase to help us manage our trees and keep them healthy.

James is a great arborist and I have enjoyed working with him through the years. He has helped me enact and, most importantly, keep to a scheduled care plan for my property. Work is scheduled for the entire year and I do not need to constantly follow up to make sure Bartlett delivers. Without James' direction and Bartlett's care, my mature trees and shrubs would be in a sorry shape.
Neil P., Charlottesville, VA

Very pleased with the professionalism and courtesy of the crew as well as the expert assessment and advice from the arborist representative, who provided a clear, written cost estimate in advance and at a good price. Fast and efficient work.

All of the Bartlett staff that have worked around my house have been exceptional in every aspect of their designated roles.

Ryan and the Bartlett crew are amazing. On time, thorough, and safety conscious. Meetings to discuss jobs are informative and professional.

Extremely satisfied with Bartlett and probably will be calling them in for any work in the future.
Pamela K., Keene, VA

Chase made it super easy for me in explaining the service being done and in getting a crew to my home in a very short amount of time. The two men who did the tree work were competent and courteous. I cannot say enough good things about the job they did. Both the administrative crew and the men doing the tree work were fantastic.
Gary M., Orange, VA

The guys in the field were great. James was very helpful and knows his job very well. Really appreciate him talking all phases of treatment with me.
Paul N., North Garden, VA

All staff I interacted with were extremely professional and knowledgeable. You have a good training program and are hiring good people. Chase has done a good job with follow up and answering technical questions. Pricing is on the high side of the market, however, you back it up with equipment, service, and quality.
Daniel N., Earlysville, VA

Dylan Kerl and his crew were professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. The crew that comes here every few months to spray our Fruit and Dogwood trees are very polite and do their job without a lot of disturbance. We highly recommend them. We had a very good experience with Bartlett. They addressed the issues we had with our mature trees and took care of the problems.
Anna M., Amherst, VA

Always professional. Always respectful. The job is done right every time. Could not be more pleased with the quality of the service.
Edgar M., Harrisonburg, VA

I am grateful to Bart for his expert assessment of a beautiful Maple tree in my yard that needed help and the steps he recommended to preserve it. I trust the scientific approach of Bartlett and will certainly rely on them in the future for the health of my trees.
Karen W., Staunton, VA

We had the pleasure of working with James Walker. He quickly responded to my email request for help and took the initiative to visit our property that very day. Our overly stressed tree was treated the following day. The gentleman on the crew very kindly called my husband to let him know they were headed our way and even checked the basement to see that no overflow of water had entered our old foundation.
JR. S., Buckingham, VA

My initial contact with Chase Giebner, was immediately positive. He was personable and knowledgeable as we toured the property and discussed what needed to be done, help for two large Colorado Spruce trees, a dying Crabapple tree that needed to come down, a bagworm problem with our scores of Arborvitae in three locations, and a massive Sycamore with twin trunks that towers over the house. Shortly after our meeting, Chase emailed me with a course of action, and then set up a schedule for everything. The work was done by three of your crew, and they were equally courteous and efficient. Andrew handled the spraying of the Colorado Spruce for needle cast, as well as the bagworm spraying of all those Arborvitae. He also treated the soil around the two spruce trees based on an analysis of a soil sample that Chase collected on his first visit. Jake and Ian took down the Crabapple and left barely a twig. They also installed the recommended cable tying the twin trunks of the Sycamore together for stability.
James H., Reva, VA

Chase Giebner has done an excellent job for us. He has been a tremendous help with saving our Ash trees.
Bruce G., Greenwood, VA

Mr. Walker stays in touch. He diagnosed the problem with our tree immediately, arranged for treatment, and the whole experience was seamless.
Jon G., Esmont, VA

The crew was exceptionally polite and courteous. I was so impressed with how clean they left the site when they were finished. I have already bragged about them to several of my friends and recommended them to to a couple of colleagues.
Cheryl S., Fishersville, VA

Your folks are always prompt, efficient, courteous, and a pleasure to deal with.
Duncan C., Keswick, VA

Chase is professional, experienced, and who we trust for our tree and bushes care. The crew members alway clean up debris prior to leaving. We highly recommended.
Sarah L., Crozet, VA

Chase is friendly and knowledgeable arborist. Excellent customer service.
Mike S., Earlysville, VA

Ryan Wilkins is a trusted advisor in helping us maintain the health and appearance of the trees and plants on our property. Every person we deal with at Bartlett is professional and courteous. From the office to the people on the truck doing the fertilizer application everyone is top notch. This is the first year we have used the high pressure fertilizer process on all plants on our property. The results on our trees in only one year are very noticeable and we are excited to see how the balance of our plants respond. I am sure we will not be disappointed.
Mike S., Zion Crossroads, VA

Jack W., Scottsville, VA

Communication is always timely and work done when and promised.
Maggie S., Charlottesville, VA

Very professional and very nice to talk to as well. Acted according to the virus regulations regarding their safety and our safety. Communicated by phone which was great. One tree is looking much better. The other one has new growth, but unsure about it. Have felt the spraying has helped and I would recommend your company.

Entire experience outstanding. Dylan was courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. Crew was great.

Peggy B., Nellysford, VA

I have a great relationship with my arborist representative, Michael Abbott, and always look forward to working with him and your qualified and friendly staff. The trust I have in them is so very valuable as we care for our "pet" trees.
Edith M., Charlotteville, 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.
M. G. C., Madison, VA

Team did a terrific job. The place was a jungle, and they did so well. So happy to see Ray, he was proactive about drenching. Now everything looks so much better.
Jerrie S., Wintergreen, VA

The guys were excellent. They could not have been better.
Kip H., Dyke, 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

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.
