“Grelen Tree Care was a good cultural fit for us because of their focus on species-specific, quality tree and shrub care,” said Bartlett Vice President Alan Jones.
Rob Mathes, Managing Partner of Grelen Tree Care and a former Bartlett employee, said the acquisition allows Bartlett to expand its services in the Central Virginia area, providing much-needed professional tree and shrub care services in the region.
