Nick Scarletta was extremely responsive. He came out the day I made the call, to look at the very large tree limb that had fallen part way from the top of the tree. I was concerned it would continue to fall and damage our house and driveway. Nick was able to have the crew come a few days later, keeping me informed there would be a delay because of his trucks was out of service. Excellent service.

Jim H., Gaiyhersburg, MD

Mike has consistently been quick to respond. We have appreciated his guidance and recommendations over the last several years. With the recent storm damage in our area caused by 90 mph winds. Our family truly feels that our trees survived due to your recommendations and implementation from the crew. Trees all around the neighborhood were damaged or fell and caused damaged while ours did no. I have recommended Mike and Bartlett Tree Service to several people in the past few weeks because our trees are evidence of the benefits. The cost has always been reasonable.

I just wanted you and your company to know that we were quite pleased with the professionalism and knowledge that Mr. Bowen provided in diagnosing our Magnolia tree. We were very happy to hear that the tree is indeed still very healthy despite the attack it suffered last year due to our neighbor butchering the branches Despite it all, our tree has been evaluated and is healthy. Meeting and chatting with Mr. Bowen made our day happier …Indeed.
Katherine B., Giathersburg, MD

The arborist, Forest Bowen, was very helpful when he came to consult on the job treating Crepe Myrtles for scale insects. Sam Fisher who came to do the treatment was efficient and very personable. Bartlett’s price for this job seemed reasonable, and much lower than another estimate I had.

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.

I will certainly continue to use Bartlett and recommend them to friends.
