What Our Customers Are Saying

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.

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.

Bartlett's staff, from my initial visit and tree assessment with Joel, to the guys who came out to do the job, were professional, prompt, and friendly, The Dogwood in my front yard was handled with care, trimmed perfectly, and when they left, there was never any indication that they had even been there. They had cleaned up every branch and twig from my yard. If anyone is looking to have their trees spruced up for a very reasonable price, I highly recommend Bartlett.

Bartlett staff informed me of their arrival and explained to me what they were going to do. Once they were finished, they explained what they did and answered any questions I had. They cleared away all the debris so well it is difficult to tell any work was done.

Your company (Joel Spano), was the first to respond, and I gave the business to him. Joel is very knowledgeable, and I appreciated his advice about my trees.

I felt assured about my three Dogwoods following my first meeting with Chris Larkin even before the pruning of the dead branches was done. I was so sure that my beautiful Pink Dogwoods would die, however Chris was very relaxed and confident and put me at ease. The team that came out to do the pruning was punctual, courteous, and very polite. They did an outstanding job and completed all of the work that they were scheduled to do and cleaned up all the debris satisfactorily before leaving. My interactions with the office staff were always pleasant and helpful. Some more work is scheduled for the Spring in order for my Dogwoods to return to their healthy state but right now they look great.

The crew who came out to do the work were exceptional. They went above and beyond to clear everything including roots from some bushes and small trees out of the area, and left everything neat and clean. I was so impressed with their work, especially since I had asked to have a few additional tasks added a couple of days before they arrived. They took care of it all, and left the areas where things were removed ready for planting. I could not ask for better.

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 thought for sure I was facing the sad decision of having them removed and can't thank you enough for saving my three huge old Arborvitae - their "hair cut" was perfect - even with all the ice this year not a single branch dropped.

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.

Carolyn S., Suitland, MD

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.
