Bartlett Tree Experts Adds New Office and US Expansion

August 3, 2006 – Stamford, Conn. – As Bartlett Tree Experts nears its 100th anniversary, the company is also nearing another milestone – 100 office locations in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain and Ireland. With the addition of an office in Accokeek, Maryland, Bartlett now has well over 90 locations and is continually looking for new growth opportunities.

The Accokeek office opened earlier this year as a result of the acquisition of Moran’s Tree Service. Two other acquisitions in 2006, Shamrock Tree Service in Delaware and Northwood Tree Care in New York, also aided Bartlett’s expansion in existing operating areas.

“As we approach our 100th anniversary year, I’m proud of how far this company has come and excited about what the future holds,” said Robert A. Bartlett, Jr., Chairman of Bartlett Tree Experts. “Our continued growth demonstrates our commitment to this company, its employees, and to the arboricultural industry as a whole.”

Bartlett conducts thorough evaluations to ensure each company it acquires shares their mission of protecting trees and shrubs in our environment. Over the coming months, Bartlett will be working to integrate the acquired companies and provide a seamless transition for customers.
