Bartlett Tree Experts Expands in Maryland with Acquisition of Stansbury Tree Service

The Acquisition Widens Bartlett’s Scientific Tree Care Coverage

March 16, 2023 – Westminster, MD. – Bartlett Tree Experts, founded by Francis A. Bartlett in 1907 and the world’s leading scientific tree and shrub care company, is pleased to announce it has acquired Stansbury Tree Service in northern Maryland.

Since 1996, Stansbury Tree Service has provided quality residential and commercial tree and shrub care throughout Maryland. Owner operator Patrick Stansbury worked for Bartlett Tree Experts early in his career and credits Bartlett with teaching him species-specific pruning techniques and about the importance of plant health care to ensure optimal growing conditions of trees and shrubs in the landscape. Impressed with Bartlett’s commitment to safety, science, technology and customer service, he joins Bartlett along with his wife, Dixie, daughter Paige, and son Patrick, a climber.

“We chose Bartlett Tree Experts because I felt they could best care for our clients’ trees and shrubs as we have for the last 26 years. Bartlett has a proven plant health care program which is vital to the care and health of trees and shrubs,” Patrick Stansbury said.

The Stansbury family members, among 20 Stansbury employees making the move, say they appreciate that Bartlett is a family business, like their own, with the global resources and unmatched support of the Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories for the benefit of clients. They are excited to join the existing team at Bartlett’s Baltimore office; and about the career development and training opportunities that will be available for their arborists with the larger company.

“We are thrilled to welcome back Patrick Stansbury and his talented team of arborists to Bartlett Tree Experts. Growth through acquisition continues to be a strong path forward for us. Adding resources in the Baltimore area assists us in providing a full range of scientific tree and shrub care services for our customers to maintain healthy, beautiful landscapes,” Jim Ingram, President and Chief Operating Officer of Bartlett Tree Experts said.

“Stansbury has become a premium company in Baltimore, and that success made them an attractive company for Bartlett Tree Experts to bring onboard. Our team in the Baltimore office is excited to grow with their new colleagues and expand their service capabilities,” said John Smithmyer, Vice President of Bartlett’s Mid-Atlantic Division.

The acquisition was completed on February 24th.
