What Our Customers Are Saying
Greg Portzline, my Bartlett Arborist Representative, and his entire crew and staff did an outstanding job in addressing the tree needs on my new property in Northern New York. I look forward to working with Bartlett Tree Experts again in the future.
Jeremy S., Wellesley Island, NY
Mark Kicher is a pleasure to work with. He listens and understands how I want things done and schedules work accordingly. He makes the contract understandable for the client as well as the crew. The crew does a really good job. They are careful and methodical. They do not try to rush through things. They have the uncanny ability to trim trees, removing a lot of material, without having the trees look like they were trimmed. All associated with Bartlett are true professionals.

Mark was so helpful and friendly when he came out to look at my Blue Spruce trees late last fall. Knows his stuff and I felt very comfortable asking questions and setting up the appointment for spraying this spring. Know they will take care of my trees so I do not have to worry. Big shoutout to the gentleman who came and sprayed to remind us about keeping the dogs inside while he was spraying in case there was any drift. Did not even think about that.
Laurie E., Saquoit, NY

Chris, who sprayed our Peach tree, was knowledgeable and courteous. I appreciated his sense of humor. My first impression of Bartlett was with Rich. In addition to comments and advice about my Peach tree, we walked the property and discussed other possible projects. He was a wealth of information and was in love with my trees. A great experience, and I will have him back for further advice.

Jason is a wonderful representative of your company. He responded immediately to an emergency situation of a tree through our roof. He was very kind to us and offered suggestions on how to proceed. The crew came out that afternoon to remove it. The crew was very friendly and seemed to be happy employees although they were working late on New Year's Eve. The site was immaculate when they left, all stumps hauled away and branches ground up. We were very pleased and would call on them again in the future. Highly recommend.
Jean C., Jamesville, NY
Mark was professional and courteous in inspecting my Senior Norway Maples. They needed a lot of trimming as well as cabling to give many more years of life. He was committed to saving these trees. Crew boss Brian and crew Kelly and Gary were professional, very knowledgeable, and caring about the work they do. The professionalism of the arborists was comforting to me. I grew up with these trees. When the crew showed up for the job they admired the old Norway Maples and gave them the T.L.C. they needed. Makes me feel good inside. Thank you so much.

The workers who came were courteous to my questions and discussions of the work to be done. They worked diligently, answered any questions I had, and cleaned up afterwards. They did an excellent job.

The Bartlett rep was very helpful and we accepted her advice. The lead crew- member was outstanding and supervised his men very well. He himself did the tree-climbing and was careful and confident. He also helped later on the ground to keep things going alone and was busy. He gave a fine example to his crew. Thank You. With my yard there is no hope of using a truck to access needs. Bartlett has the ability to "just do it the old-fashioned way" - thank you!

Carol R., Skaneateles, NY
I am very happy with the service we have been provided by our representative, Greg Portzline. He arrived on time, was thorough and honest with us. He knew exactly what was wrong with our Colorado Blue Spruce trees and did not mince words. He did not offer us false hopes that they would spring back to life after a year. It could take up to five to see results. He knows his stuff and was professional and courteous. I felt comfortable with him and his assessment of our situation. Bartlett has an excellent reputation which is why we went with them. My little sister in Rome, NY uses them also and loves them. Please keep doing what you are doing because it works. You are heads and tails above the competition. Class act.
Steve B., Warners, NY

The crew that worked on the trees was agile, accurate, and frankly amazing. A very positive experience from the initial consultation right through to the actual work on our trees. Grateful to now know who to call for ongoing care of our trees.
