Domestic and International Growth Priority for Bartlett

To further it’s growth both in the U.S. and abroad, Bartlett Tree Experts has completed the acquisition of the business operations of a total of six tree care companies in early 2005. What began nearly 100 years ago as a regional tree care company serving the eastern U.S. has now expanded into an international organization, with over 90 offices worldwide.

The acquired companies cover a variety of geographies and are all highly respected in the regions they serve. They are Jordan Tree Care in North Carolina, Bailey Tree Service in Connecticut, Arbor Care in California, Arbour Care in Canada and Branchline Tree Solutions and Four Seasons Tree Care in Great Britain.

“We are always looking for ways to grow our business and better serve customers,” said Greg Daniels, president of Bartlett Tree Experts. “In terms of acquisitions, we look for companies that have similar values to ours and are dedicated to preserving trees and shrubs. A number of companies like this became available in late 2004 and early 2005, which afforded us the opportunity to welcome some world-class tree care providers into our company while expanding our customer base.”

Bartlett is in the process of integrating these companies into its organization and is working hard to provide a smooth transition for customers. “We are committed to providing only the best scientific tree care to customers,” continued Daniels. “By combining the local expertise of the acquired companies with Bartlett’s global resources, customers truly get the best of both worlds.”
