Bartlett Helps Wow Homeowner on TLC’s “While You Were Out”
Jan. 4, 2005 – Annapolis, Md. – The task at hand was to surprise one lucky Annapolis, MD homeowner with a new backyard treehouse and the hit TLC television series, “While You Were Out” was about to make it happen. But to take this plan from design to reality, they needed to call in the experts – Bartlett Tree Experts that is.
With certified arborists based locally in their Annapolis office, Bartlett Tree Experts has extensive knowledge of the Chesapeake Bay area plant life. Backed by this expertise, Bartlett was ready to help make a backyard tree fit for a truly amazing treehouse.
“At Bartlett, safety is of the utmost importance and the ‘While You Were Out’ team felt the same way about this project,” said Paul Foster, Local Manager and Bartlett Arborist Representative. “By completing a thorough evaluation of the tree and consulting with designers and architects, we were able to help ‘While You Were Out’ build a treehouse that is structurally sound and fun. The homeowners are very pleased with the results and are already enjoying the new addition to their yard!”
Under Paul’s supervision, climbers from Bartlett also provided basic pruning services for the tree. Paul, a member and former president of the Maryland Arborist Association, has been helping Maryland residents care for their trees and shrubs for over 30 years. His appearance on the show first aired January 15.
