What Our Customers Are Saying About James Riddle

All were very professional. James was excellent in walking our ground and identifying what needed to be done. He also guided our ideas of trimming, some of which would have been left untouched. The work crew was focused on the work and diligent cleaning up. We have used Bartlett before and neighbors have used Bartlett after seeing your work at our house on a previous trimming here.
Jon, B., Danville, CA

James Riddle is very responsive and has a great understanding and knowledge of trees and how they complement each other. He is sensitive to my needs if there happens to be budgetary limitation.
Mark D., Danville, CA

Thank you Barlett Tree and James Riddle. We have a large, corner lot with multiple mature trees and a professionally landscaped yard in both front and back. We take extreme pride in assuring our property always looks top notch. James met with us and knew about each tree, best time to trim them, and gave us a bid which we thought was reasonable. They put us on the calendar for three weeks out but came the next week as one tree had to be cut back to the Walnut Creek standards as a couple branches had grown to the sidewalk. Today they showed up as promised, four different men on site. Very organized, some did the trimming while others assisted in picking up the trimmings and removing them. Our home was left spotless, the trees were perfectly trimmed, thinned out, and shaped. I am a local realtor and will recommend them to all of my clients and anyone I know. Top notch company, very professional.
Mark L., Walnut Creek, CA

Everything went well with our tree service. Thanks for giving us a fair price with great service. I will keep you in mind for the future.
Pat D. , Walnut Creek, CA

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.

Carol K., Walnut Creek, CA

Everyone was just great to work with. Was amazed at how clean our property was after the crew finished trimming several trees. They did a very professional job. Have been using your company for many years.
Ruth G., Danville CA

I have worked with James on several jobs for the Town of Danville and he has always been courteous and responsive to my needs. This most recent job required traffic control along with interaction with the public. During my times on the job site, I observed James and the crew being attentive to the public's needs as well as looking out for all of our safety while the work was being performed.
Jed, J. , Town of Danville, CA

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.
Ray B., Pacheco, CA

James Riddle is very knowledgable about trees. His guidance was invaluable to someone on a budget but also committed to the trees health. He was able to help prioritize my needs and develop a list of next steps. He is very personable and was proactive in resolving potential property line issues to my satisfaction.
Bonny G., Walnut Creek

James and the crew were punctual and professional. We will definitely call on them again.
Mark, P., San Ramon

James Riddle, our Bartlett arborist has been amazing. We called him at 8:30am on a stormy Sunday to report our large old Modesto Ash had fallen. He was at our house within 30 minutes. They secured the tree, as it was leaning against another large tree, and were back at 7:45 am Monday morning to begin the removal. They finished by noon on Tuesday, and were an amazing crew! I will definitely recommend Bartlett to family and friends when they are in need. Thank you.
Carol K., Walnut Creek

James was knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt. Would absolutely recommend him and his crew!
Linda W., Walnut Creek CA

The Bartett staff were very professional and the crew was very knowledgeable and informative about their assigned job. The crew were friendly, approachable , and open to my questions and willingly answered them when asked. They were very professional and highly competent with their work. We were very pleased to see such professionalism and communication amongst the crew and our arborist representative. James Riddle, our representative made my decision to hire your company very easy . James was very receptive to my requests and his professional approach to what was needed for our property was comforting and not over whelming ( as a first time home owner and new to the whole concept of owning trees, it can be overwhelming and confusing). James was very communicative about what the job entailed and what I can do and also be aware of for the future. Bartlett was highly recommended to me by a friend and I have to say I will and already have passed on your companies name and also James name. I will need Bartlett Tree Experts help in the future and will not hesitate to hire your company again. Thanks for a great job!
Kim L., Walnut Creek, CA

Entire crew was helpful, respectful, and courteous. Using Bartlett for another property as well.
