Identifying hazardous tree conditions

When there is a hanging branch or crack in a tree, it's easy to see that a problem exists. However, some issues are more difficult to detect. Simple solutions can make a big difference. Pruning can lessen branch weight and wind resistance. Cables and brace rods can also be effective in helping to limit branch movement and protect trees.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I called upon the experts to trim and prune my trees. They exceeded my expectations from setting up the appointment to completion.
Larry S., Houston, TX

Joe and his crew were absolutely outstanding. Joe was knowledgeable and answered all of our questions with great patience. His work crew was courteous, and they managed the job from start to finish with great expertise and care. I was particularly impressed with the coordination between the office and work crew. We live in a world today where customer service does not seem to exist anymore. You schedule people to do a job, and end up having to chase them down to actually show up or even call you back. Bartlett Tree Experts were extremely proactive in their phone calls, emails, job quotes, and overall responsiveness. They listened to our concerns, and took note of our vacation schedule so they could work around it. The office called the day before they came, showed up on time, did a great job, and cleaned up thoroughly afterwards. The work crew was particularly polite and explained the watering schedule required. I cannot begin to say how impressed I was by this company and staff. I will definitely recommend Bartlett Tree Experts to friends and family. I called several tree companies prior to selecting Bartlett. A few never showed up or even called us back. Some just seemed to lack the knowledge and expertise about what was required to take care of out tree issues. We could not be happier with the highly professional and attentive service we received.
Wendy M., Houston, TX

Best tree trimming experience ever on our property. Gene is a real pro, and the crew was extremely conscientious.
Sis J., Houston, TX

I have enjoyed working with Gene Basler whose recommendations have greatly improved the health and appearance of my trees.
John C., Houston, TX

Erik Belcher and his staff have provided outstanding service to our property over the years. Thank you.
Michael B., Houston, TX

Gene is the best and the crew members were polite, informative, and did a great job.
Katie H., Houston, TX

Erik is professional, friendly, and ready to answer all my questions. Crew arrived on time and carried out work systematically and tidied up at end of day. Crew adhered very well, to Erik’s instructions regarding the extent and scope of trimming needed. Pleased with the end result and confident that choosing Bartlett’s expertise and reputation over the hundreds of other area tree services will pay off in the long term health of our trees.
Maria K., Houston, TX

Joseph McMaster was an honest and informative arborist. The service worker was patient and consistent in doing the root collar removal. Care was taken to clean up debris and mulch carefully was put around the trees. I would highly recommend this service.
Debbie R., Cypress, TX

Gene Basler is always informative and professional, he knows trees and we would not use any other provider. The staff, Pat and Trish, are always accommodating when trying to schedule service and answer questions.
Robin C., Houston, TX

Joe was great to work with, explained the problem with our Magnolia, also the danger of some branches on another tree. All the crew members who came to the house were extremely professional and friendly.
Cindy L., Houston, TX

I was very appreciative of the prompt response. Our tree was very old and huge, and it covered the entire street when it fell. The crew came out right away and cleared the street. The arborist was empathetic, professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable. The crew worked extremely hard and was accommodating of all our needs.
Eileen M., Houston, TX

We had a big job to trim trees and to prepare our trees and their roots for a large house being built right behind our home. Erik came out to visit with us and spent time discussing each tree and what should be done. His quote was reasonable and the work was done by a knowledgable, dependable, and professional crew. They finished early so the bill was adjusted. Erik visited on the day of the tree trimming to make sure that the crew understood what needed to be done. In addition to trimming, we arranged for fertilizing and insect spraying. We were very impressed by Erik's expertise, his relationship with our tree trimming crew, and the quality of the trimming and clean-up after the job was completed.
Fran M., Houston, TX

Joe was responsive, professional, and knowledgeable on all facets of my project. He impressed me with the level of diligence and care in scoping and overseeing the project. Because of the platinum service level Joe provided I have already recommended him and Bartlett to my builder for his other new builds and will recommend Joe and Bartlett for any other tree services needed by family, friends, and colleagues.
Sheila K., Houston, TX

Bartlett takes great care of our trees. The crews who have provided treatment are courteous, knowledgeable, and very clean.
Catherine G., Houston, TX

For many years we had recurring issues with black mold on my Japanese Blueberry, since we have been using Bartlett Tree Experts the mold is now controlled. After an unfortunate and mysterious trimming our Magnolia trees went into massive shock. Bartlett has cared for the trees for the past two years and they are now regrowing beautifully. The staff takes time to discuss details of treatment plans and recommendations. They are professional and reliable and provide excellent services.
Doris J., Houston, TX

Joe Parrott was extremely friendly and helpful when deciding to remove a dying Bradford Pear from our front yard. Removal was quick and easy, and I will definitely use Bartlett for any future removals or trimming.
Chris G., Houston, TX

My wife met Erik at the Houston Home Show and she asked him to come over and look at our three mature oak trees and two tall pine trees. These trees have not been trimmed in over eight years. Erik came over and gave us an estimate. It was not the cheapest nor the most expensive. The reason we chose Bartlett was because of Erik. His analysis confirmed the other two bidders opinions of our trees, plus he was knowledgeable and friendly. The workers arrived on time and each one introduced themselves. They were all garbed in safety gear and were very pleasant. They got right to work and were so quiet I hardly noticed them. That night I got an email from our neighbor. She wanted to comment on the crew. She said she was impressed at how they left her yard. She thanked us for selecting such a professional company. I then went outside and looked where they had been working and dang if she was not right.
Drew and Lynn G., Houston, TX

Erik Belcher is great in so many ways and fast to respond even on weekends. Danny, Cruz, and Efrain were also great. They made sure I was aware that the turbine on my roof was off (tree branch got it). Just hard working very nice and polite men. I am never afraid to leave my property solely in their hands.
Deryl S., Sugar Land

I find that Joe Keefe is courteous and willing to discuss any issues I have about growing things on my property. He has been helpful in making recommendations and referring businesses for other issues on my property. I trust Joe to help me keep the place well cared for. Vivian W., Houston, TX

Gene Basler has been so helpful and fun to work with. We have relied on his expertise in choosing the appropriate location of their planting. We have been extremely pleased with the results. We also appreciate his follow up. In other words, he didn't just sell us the trees and disappear. Thank you! Gina C., Houston, TX

Jake was very helpful in advising what needed to be done immediately and what could be scheduled at a later date. He was there with the crew to ensure the work was done exactly as we had agreed. R.S., 77079

Gene is always helpful and a pleasure to work with; the work crew did its usual fine job. S.K., 77036

On behalf of the Facility and Plant Management department of DePelchin Children's Center, we want to express our deepest appreciation for your hard work during our recent Day of Caring/Volunteer Project activities. Your untiring energy and labor made this even a successful experience. You were very supportive and readily available for our last minute changes. It is and continues to be a real pleasure working with you and such a helpful committed group of professionals. We are appreciative of all your help. Without you, we could not have done it. Thank you once again for a great job. Chad H., Houston, TX

Thank you for your assistance with our tree removal. Your staff were very professional & courteous. Margaret B., Houston, TX

Please accept our sincere appreciation for lending support to the Facility and Plant Management Department. I am very satisfied with your research and your suggestions. It was a pleasure to have you and the Bartlett crew present on-site this Friday during the tree dedication ceremony, and I was content to see you take the initiative to remain on standby and ready to step into unforeseen difficulties. Your team did an excellent job. Thank you for being responsive to our needs and providing our maintenance department with excellent service and assistance. Sincerely, CH
