What Our Customers Are Saying
From the first consultation to the last service, Mr. Riddle has been courteous, friendly, and very knowledgeable. We will definitely reach out for future service needs. The crew members were methodical and careful not to damage other things in our backyard. They took extra time to ensure that there were no debris left. When they were done, they did not just drive away but rather spent a few more minutes explaining what they had accomplished. What great service. Thank you Mr. Riddle and his very professional and friendly crew for their help with our service needs. We will definitely be reaching out for future needs and refer our friends and family. Stay safe and healthy.

They were not the lowest bidder, but the work they did, and the care they exercised, was exemplary. I have never seen a crew work so closely and carefully together so the final product was so well coordinated. The crew was refreshed on what to cut and how to cut by the arborist who arrived before work began and painstakingly pointed out the key cuts to be made for each tree, and then the crew discussed his recommendations and made suggestions. My guess is that if I was comparing their work to another firm, they would have taken at least several hours more to complete the job because of all the planning, reviewing progress, and making adjustments to achieve the desired result. This company is good and I will surely use them again.

Wesley was very helpful in providing advice and coordinating our extensive tree service. Wesley was very knowledgeable and provided a detailed service plan. The other crew members were professional, followed safety protocols, and were polite. We appreciated that they delivered our chips and logs to our farm property and left our home property clean and neat after their work.

Although I had other comparable estimates, I choose Bartlett because of Wesley Des Roches, the arborist representative. He came when scheduled, was personable and informative. He took the time to explain what the crew would be doing and why and then was at my home early on the scheduled day to talk with them. The crew also worked hard, cleaned up beautifully, and finished in a timely manner. The trees were trimmed professionally and I feel safer with the thinning of he branches and with less weight on them.
Katie, W., Concord CA

The crew were very respectful of my property. I forgot to move some empty planters so one of them did it and put them back in the correct order. They also informed me when they would be done. My other neighbor was so impressed he told his parents about the service, while the neighbor immediately next to me used your services and seems happy. Wes is truly dedicated to his work and cares. While showing him the work I needed done he stopped at a sick tree, I had no idea anything was wrong with the tree. I learn something from him every time he visits.
Amanda L., San Leandro, CA
I very much appreciate the communication and perseverance during the pandemic caused interruptions. The tree removal process was interrupted a number of times due to restrictions by government agencies. James Riddle was very good at keeping us informed about changes to project timing.
Dave W., Walnut Creek
Out of curiosity I looked it up in my records and discovered that Bartlett has been taking care of my Modesto Ash tree since 1997. There is a wonderful consistency with the excellent service I have received through the years. Nicki is always pleasant with answering the phone and taking my payment. Wesley is always prompt when coming to look at the tree, discussing with me what needs to be done and giving me an estimate. I can only commend Bartlett for having such an outstanding crew leader as Ryan Lee. He has been the lead with pruning my tree for the last several years and is always courteous not only to me, but to the other members of the crew. He has a wonderful eye for exactly what needs to be pruned to maintain the tree's beauty and integrity. It always amazes me how the crew can do the pruning without damaging any of the plants under the tree and my yard is always spotless when the job is finished. I look forward to working with everyone again next year.

Bartlett was the last of the four companies we had out for an estimate and James Riddle was who came out from your company. We wanted an estimate for pruning our nine Queen Palms and having another removed. After meeting with the other companies my husband had made a comment to me about buying a laser pointer so that I could use it next time to point at which fronds I wanted removed and trimmed. If they had one to use, It would have taken less time out in the sun with them. Not only was James pleasant and informative, he knew how we wanted the fronds trimmed and which ones removed because the first thing he did was pull out his laser pointer. Most importantly, I wanted a lift used to trim the fronds instead of using spikes to climb the palms. The crew members Ryan and Alberto were very cordial and communicated with us to insure that the job was being done as we wished. I requested that James come out to oversee the job and he did at the beginning as he said he would. We are absolutely pleased with the job and highly recommend them.

Fabulous service, from Wesley, who came to bid on the job, to the office personnel, to the workmen. Wonderful, friendly, cordial and conscientious service. Had three big trees trimmed today. Workmen were punctual, pleasant, and cleaned up all the mess created by the pruning. They were here about five hours for this big job. While they were here Wesley stopped by to make sure everything was going smoothly. I have used other tree companies over the past ten years. This one beats them all in terms of responsiveness, plus the job they did was great. Got the name of this company from a friend, and have now recommended this company to another friend who will be utilizing their service this next month.

James Riddle was exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful in his proposal; and the tree they "cleaned up' looks great. It makes the whole South side of the house look more attractive.
I've already passed your name off to my brother and sister-in-law.

Nicky, thanks for putting us in Tony's hands, and ditto Tony for bringing in James. It was great to finally meet him. He quoted a very reasonable price, explained the removal step by step, and not long after, Ryan and Joe showed up and put those steps to a beautifully choreographed dance. They work so well together; a regular well-oiled machine. All of your guys are great. They are super safety conscious which is so important, and they do an excellent job every time. As always, the area was left much cleaner than when they arrived.
