Joel was very helpful in pointing out areas that needed pruning. The two workers who performed the pruning arrived on time were polite and showed me their work before they left. Bartlett's quote was the highest of three I obtained. One quote was a third of Bartlett's and too good to be true. I am happy with the value I received from Bartlett.

I was very pleased. Bartlett was able to schedule the work on my time line. Ashley and your crew showed up on time and was extremely courteous and respectful to us and our property. The work was completed very well and your crew worked with me and accomplished the contracted work in compliance with my on site requests. Overall a great experience.

The staff was amazing and the work was done to perfection. I am recommending you to a friend, but I know she does not want her name given out. They were prompt and professional. I had been putting off having my huge Fig pruned, but called Bartlett on the recommendation of Homestead Gardens. I was nervous, watched them for around three minutes, realized they knew what they were doing, and went on about my daily business. It is wonderful to know of a company who does hand pruning. Chris Larkin is a joy to work with.
