What Our Customers Are Saying About Bart McDowell
You definitely get what you pay for with Bartlett. From the first consultation through to the crew's departure when the job was done, everything was thoroughly professional. The crew was personable and efficient, they trimmed the large Oak tree both effectively and aesthetically. They cleaned up so thoroughly that my neighbors commented that you could not even tell they had been here. Thank you for your terrific job.
Paul H., Staunton, VA

Cliff G., Staunton, VA
It was the perfect day, weather-wise, to trim trees and shrubs.The crew did a terrific job
Experienced, professional crew. Did expert trimming the tree with wires running through it. They were careful, cautioned us to be careful and not come outside. Cleaned up the yard well. The representative has worked with us before and we would choose no other company to work with. He was professional, carefully determined the cost of the job, and made certain that was understood.
Excellent job all around.
Phillip R., Harrisonburg, VA

Excellent service from beginning to completion. These are very skilled people who know how to keep our trees healthy. Looking forward to a continued relationship.
Ann M., Staunton, VA
I really appreciate Bart McDowell's expertise and his promptness in assessing my tree situations. He is always courteous and knowledgeable.
Melode D., Harrisonburg, VA
Bart went the extra mile to schedule when it suited me and made an honest evaluation of the potential outcome. This particular service treating Hornbeam trees was straightforward but presented a potential hazard to nearby vegetation. Keith explained what he needed to do to minimize the hazard. Could not have been nicer.
For this type of service, Bartlett is among the most expensive companies in the area. So why use them, Responsiveness, Honesty, Knowledge, and professional execution.
Jack C., Staunton, VA
Always a great appointment with Bart. Knows so much. Sees so much.

Everyone was professional, courteous, and helpful in setting up and completing the tree work. The crew worked hard and was very efficient in completing the job on a timely basis as specified by the owner.
Ken H., Staunton, VA
The crew was very professional, courteous, walked around the property to confirm the work to be done, and responded to questions, did the work without damaging surrounding trees and shrubs, cleaned up the yard. Simply a great job all around. I was very appreciative of the safety precautions they took, which was in start contrast to that of companies that service our neighbors.

Steven S., Weyers Cave, VA
We were extremely happy with the job you did for us. The crew were very friendly and efficient. We will definitely use you again when the need arises. Also, Bart was very knowledgeable, efficient, and personable.
Susan B., Swoope, VA
Everyone I spoke with before, during, and after the job was great. Q2, Was the job site left neat and clean. I answered no as that is true for now. The ground became Very soft and muddy as the day grew warmer and the ground thawed even walking became a bit difficult, so moving the logs with the small Bobcat would have done great damage to the yard. The crew expressed the concerns to me, and plan to return once the ground dries and freezes again to deal with the rest of the clean up at that time. We definitely appreciated the care expressed with the job at hand, as I feel sure others would not have paid attention to the circumstances. I would have proceeded to clear the site despite causing serious harm to the surface in order to finish the task on that day ... rather than plan to return later and finish the task whenever Mother Nature turns the yard dry and hard enough to do so without tearing it up.
Ron R., Staunton, VA
All around great job. Crew were friendly and listened to what I had to say. Clean up was thorough.
James M., Harrisonburg, VA
They are always friendly and professional.
Terry L., Harrisonburg, VA
Very professional and very nice to talk to as well. Acted according to the virus regulations regarding their safety and our safety. Communicated by phone which was great. One tree is looking much better. The other one has new growth, but unsure about it. Have felt the spraying has helped and I would recommend your company.
Jerry W., Bridgewater, VA
Perfect 10! They did everything they were asked to do. I could not tell whether they had been there by the high level of cleanliness. Bartlett employees must be screened for their ability in customer relations! The crew hit the ground running as soon as they arrived and were attentive and polite. Overall, I enjoy having them around. The level of confidence we have in Bartlett is beyond any other. Also, I would like to note that their research and outreach is much appreciated."
Stew T., Waynesboro, VA
Great job, thanks for taking care of my special needs.
Kirk B., Lyndhurst, VA
Bart and Bartlett provide quality service that keeps me as a customer.
Ned K., Harrisonburg, VA
I was fortunate to find out about Bart McDowell last spring from a local landscape designer, and was surprised he would come out to our property and offer his expert advice for free. His crew then did some major work on large trees surrounding our home, and the difference has been amazing. We have lived here for over 25 years, and never had any tree work done before. I wish we had known about Bart and your services when we first moved in and began planting trees. We would have avoided quite a few mistakes.
Tom and Carol B., Fairfield, VA
The crew was nice, professional, and did what they had to do safely. Will recommend your company if anyone asks.
J. M., Luray, VA
