I can not say enough wonderful words about this company and the staff. I have been through hell with my very large property with all four hundred ficus trees and several other tree types all having issues of different types. Ficus trees losing their leaves and dying from the tops, the Elm had mushrooms growing all over it and was not in good condition, and the Palms were doing something called "crowning." Everything was brown and dying. I had a very expensive landscaping company who did all the initial planting and work two years ago, how could everything be dying already. They had no idea what was going on with anything and had no help for me. They told me to find an arborist. I hired an arborist and paid a chunk of change for him to come do some work, and all he did was spray for white fly which was not the cause of any of the issues in the end. Once I hired Bartlett they confirmed the issues. The Ficus trees were planted to deeply and needed to be aerated. They were struggling to get oxygen and thrive. Every tree needed aeration and time to breathe. The fake grass around the Elm needed to be ripped out so the tree above could get the nutrients it needed and the oxygen it needed to breathe. Finally real answers. They did the work plus fertilization and vitamins were added after the aeration was done and in just weeks the Ficus trees are all blooming new leaves and looking lush again. This company is the real deal. They care, they know plants and trees, and they will help you find answers and fix the problems. I will use them forever. Plus they have the nicest staff ever. Andrew is absolutely the best.

We had a fallen tree that was rather precarious and needed to be removed immediately. Some of the other companies we called were very flakey with communications. Andrew came by for the estimate that afternoon. He was patient with all our questions, and very knowledgeable. They worked with us on pricing. We decided to remove the debris ourselves, over time, since it was only one tree, to keep the price down. Jeff came by the next morning to remove the tree. He was also very patient with our questions, and very knowledgeable. He did a great job, and a great cleanup. We will be using them again to take care of the rest of our property.

I was very pleased with the crew that was here working on my tree. I really appreciated Andrew coming by, and talking to me, also giving the crew direction.
Nancy B., Pacific Palisades, CA
The job was left neat and clean. Staff was friendly, efficient, and helpful. We were treated courteously. We would recommend Bartlett to our friends.
Kathleen H., Granada Hills, CA
We are using Bartlett because we are customers of Mellinger Tree Service and we really like dealing with Andrew Shiavone. He is knowledgeable and is always at the job site. The job came in on time, they were so efficient, and they kept the yard very clean at the end of every day.
