Adam was a great introduction to the company.

Outstanding service from beginning to end. Telephone receptionist was very professional, courteous, friendly, and helpful. Adam was very professional and knowledgeable about our tree problem. The application of insecticide was quickly scheduled and completed for the large Ash tree and Ilex bushes.

I highly recommend Bartlett Tree Service to all.

Adam was very knowledgeable when he came to diagnose the damage to our shrubs and discuss pruning our trees. He explained what was causing the damage and how best to treat it. We were impressed that the treatment was redone without our request because of rain that fell about an hour after the treatment was completed.

Adam understood our needs and financial limitations. He came up with a workable, fair price for the work we needed. The crew that did the job was outstanding. Very personable, willing to answer questions, and really worked hard to get the job done. They left the job site neat and clean. Very professional and skilled from the Arborist to the entire crew. I hope we never need a cleanup of this nature in the future, but if we do we will be calling Bartlett.

Adam Braaten provides a great introduction to your company. He was very interested in helping me decide what needed doing and how they would go about doing the work. He has a confident and professional manner that I immediately respected. His quoted job price was reasonable. Ms. Cundiff was pleasant and informative. Both of these people represent your company very well. Nate provides a great service to Bartlett. Observation of how the work was being done reflected the obvious training of each man. They all knew what they were doing. Each one of the four men did his job efficiently and in a very safe manner. Job safety is important to your company. It was a pleasure for me to watch your men work. I will recommend Bartlett to anyone.

Adam Braaten has been a wonderful consultant over the years. He always patiently explains in a clear and concise manner issues with my landscape as well as providing advice on solutions. Most recently, I sent pictures of a magnolia bush problem on my property in Gore, Virginia which Adam quickly recognized as scale insect infestation. He also sent me the phone number of Bartlett which services the Winchester area. I contacted them, their arborist came out that same morning, and treatment has been arranged, all as a result of Adam's diagnosis and timely response. Adam has been invaluable to me as I am originally from Nebraska and am unfamiliar with many Virginia flora and associated issues. Bartlett crew members who do the spraying and tree work are always great. They efficiently do the contracted jobs and clean up thoroughly afterward. The administrative staff is very pleasant as well.
C.W., Salem, VA
Adam Braaten was very helpful in addressing my concerns. The crew was on time and efficient. The dogwood looks more like a tree. Nandina looks so much better.

It is very easy to put trust in the spraying work that is implemented because he is careful with materials, safety, and is orderly in his approach.

Adam was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He listened to what we wanted and gave suggestions that enabled us to decide the best course to take for the tree work we desired. The work crew was very courteous and answered all questions when they were here. I was impressed by their attention to detail and the clean up after they were finished. They made sure I was satisfied before they departed.
