Very friendly and well informed, gave us great advice in preventative care of our landscaping. Ryan gave us a very thoughtful evaluation of the condition of our trees and plants and provided some long-term advice that we really appreciated. Likewise, your staff members who came out to admitted treatments to our boxwoods took the time to show us the problem and describe how the treatment worked and recommended some follow up actions to keep the plants healthy.

Riley was very helpful with suggestions if needed, and took clear notes of what we wanted done. The crew that showed up were also very clear in what needed to be done in advance, and offered small suggestions for the job. Did a great job on the trimming we requested, and clean up was great. The back yard grass was not even affected much by the machines and work, which is fantastic.

Kevin Clair, our arborist, was there prior to crew starting on the pruning, he went over in detail what pruning was needed, and how we wanted the firewood sized pieces to be left for us. The crew members were very friendly, knowledgeable, and did a great job of prep and cleanup to all areas where pruning was done. From the initial visit by Kevin to review all of our tree health and the recommendations for this season's pruning for scheduling to completion of work, this was a top notch job, we are very happy with the work and results.

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