What Our Customers Are Saying

Always great service. Very appreciative of Forest Bowen and the Bartlett team. Forest's advice has always been great. The clean up has been excellent including on an overgrown abandoned back yard . We also have a small tree that self-seeded, Forest said the shallow roots might be disrupting the brick driveway. All the same, since we wanted to keep the trees for shade, he and his crew has taken excellent care of it over several years.

It was appreciated and great that (1) Bartlett did not need to be reminded we wanted the Fall fertilization, and (2) the way the job Bartlett was coming to do was facilitated for your crew person and for me because he took the time to call to inform me of his coming. It was a thumbs up experience all the way around. Thank you.

We are relatively new to using Bartlett Tree Service, only two years so far. But, so far, we are quite happy with this partnership in caring for our trees. Our current representative, Dylan Belcher, is very responsive to our questions. Sometimes answers are a bit delayed, but we know he will get them to us. The crew members have also been terrific, hardworking, and pleasant. One man (Oscar, was especially good he was in charge of cabling a large River Birch to prevent possible wind damage to the house. He did a great job and was clearly both knowledgable about, and appreciative of trees. All in all, we feel we are in good hands and look forward to our continued association.

Michael Liebfreid is exceptional, he has come out for tree work before. Each time he has been knowledgeable, professional, and honest about the requested work and necessary work. He is responsive and quickly schedules appointments. In each job we had contracted through Bartlett the completed job was excellent and on time. Additionally, the crew thoroughly cleaned up any debris, and the surrounding lawn was not damaged nor disturbed. The knowledge about the trees and the care for the surrounding area is a reason why we use Bartlett. There are other bargain tree companies but we have seen the damage and debris they have left behind in other yards.

My neighbor across the street has been singing your praises for years. She also noticed my Oak out front was in trouble and I am so glad she recommended you to me.

Kevin Clair was knowledgeable and friendly. He came highly recommended from Dave Stadler at Stadler Nurseries. Kevin took the time to walk our property, address serious issues and offer advice on how to best care for our many large hardwood trees. I greatly appreciate him traveling from another Bartlett office to visit our property. The crew was friendly and got the job done in a timely manner. I will certainly continue to use Bartlett and recommend them to friends.
