What Our Customers Are Saying

Everyone I interacted with was excellent, informed, efficient, and courteous. Riley Smith has been an excellent Arborist Representative. The tree trimming crew was outstanding. They did a beautiful job on a large mature Maple tree. Some of my neighbors use less experienced, lower-priced services that have seriously damaged their mature trees. I appreciate that the service Bartlett has provided at my property for over ten years has been consistently outstanding. My trees are in good conditions as a result.

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.

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.

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.

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