Riley was super communicative, helpful, and accommodating. We were an hour away when we heard from Riley that our car, in the driveway, was in the way of work, and could we move it. While it was tricky for us to make it back, Riley was super helpful communicating with the crew about whether they could work around it or even come back another day to finish the work. We were able to come back, and the crew was already doing an awesome job working around the tree. Great, highly professional service. Our yard feels so much more open, and the trees look clean and healthy.

Carlos S., Capitol Heights, MD

This is our first experience with Bartlett Tree Service. We are fully satisfied that we have engaged the right firm to help us work to ensure the health of our large, forty year old Maple tree in our back yard. Joel was the first Bartlett person to come to our home. We appreciated his willingness to address our many questions throughout our garden areas and, particularly, to describe for us his proposed program to help our tree thrive. The next person to come was the Bartlett tech who injected fertilizer into the entire area defined by the drip line, other than that area covered by pavers forming our patio. It became clear immediately why the Bartlett treatment could not practically be done by a home owner. The third presence by Bartlett was the pruning crew led by Roberto. Roberto was able to explain to us exactly what he and his crew would do and he took into consideration our preferences at each turn. As Roberto said, his objective was to do the pruning in such a way that the tree benefited and that we could not see any negative consequence of the choice of cuts. We were most impressed by the knowledge and capability of each Bartlett employee to communicate well with us.

Lloyd S., Fort Washington, MD

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.
Gail R., Greenbelt, MD

Kevin and his crew have been consistent and professional in caring for the older trees on our property. We trust them.

This was our second experience with Bartlett and it was outstanding. Everyone we encountered was professional, polite, and made sure no extraneous damage happened. Michael Leibfred was wonderful, he assessed the job and provided us with a fast, detailed estimate. The crew was awesome, no cars were damaged, and the debris was cleaned up. We had two large trees taken down and left it immaculate. We will use Bartlett for any further tree maintenance, and continually recommend them to others.

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.
Vicki B., Seabrook, MD

Riley Smith was very courteous and spent time discussing our concerns and providing helpful advice on going management of several of our plantings. Staff doing the work were very accommodating and easy to work with.

Great job. We will have you guys back out to deal with the Elms soon. Thanks for the great work and extra clean job site. I was a little nervous about the recently seeded grass under the two trees, but the guys treaded softly and there was no damage to the young grass at all.

Michael Leibfreid has a nice personality and gave me helpful information. It is obvious that he is well educated in this field. I met and watched a crew member treat two trees. He is also a nice and professional guy who did a thorough job. When appropriate, I will not hesitate to refer Michael and your company.
John G, Jessup, MD

I was extremely pleased with the Representative and the crewmembers. The crewmembers went above and beyond. Their work was outstanding. My neighbors on both sides of my townhome were also impressed and I provided Bartlett Tree Experts information to them. Thank you for a job well done.
Teri K., Laurel ,MD

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.

Chris Larkin was great, truly knowledgeable, and answered all of my many questions. The crew that came out really seemed to enjoy their job. They were efficient, worked well together, and were highly skilled. They even worked around a vehicle that could not be moved.
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.
