What Our Customers Are Saying About Bobby Nance
I am very satisfied with all aspects of my experience with Bartlett.
Jay S., Norfolk, VA
Impeccable service and utmost professionalism. Two overgrown Crape Myrtle trees were cut back which now gives such a clean look to the front landscape. Not only did Bartlett clear the large amount of debris, but our yard and beds never looked so immaculate. Perfection at an affordable price.
Dan D., Chesapeake, VA
Bobby introduced me to Chris and Ross who did most of the trimming and clean up and they all did a great job. I appreciate the expertise and care taken with our trees.
John H., Suffolk, VA
Mr. Nance is very thorough and knowledgeable. He is punctual. His proposal was detailed, explained all tasks and provided separate quotes for a couple of options I wanted to consider. The crew completed the work within the promised schedule. They were well equipped and knowledgeable. Care was taken to use safety equipment and procedures. Their tools were quiet battery powered type. I was very pleased with their work.
Steve E., Suffolk, VA
We appreciate your superb work ethic and professionalism. Very happy with all of your services. Merry Christmas to all of you.
Julia Siik, Norfolk, VA
Bobby Nance, as well as his staff who came to take care of our tree, were a pleasure to work with. They listened and responded to our requests in a very professional manner. Our tree looks wonderful. They are clearly knowledgeable and experienced in their field. Thank you Bartlett.
Paula O'Conner, Norfolk, VA
My tree looks lovely and I hope it comes back healthier than you found it. I am sorry I let it go so long without a good trim. I appreciate the on site visit and appreciate the assurance that it will come back healthy and full. I look forward to that. Very happy with customer service, the crew were courteous and well mannered. They did a magnificent job of cleaning the yard and also left the street as if a wood chipper had never been there. I checked the street after they left and not one speck of sawdust was found. The debris was placed on the curb very neatly I will certainly recommend your services to anyone looking for quality work at a fair price. Thank you so much for taking the time to come out here in person to discuss what I wanted and what you could provide. I am very happy with the looks of my tree and my neighbors are happy they can see the lake and sky.
Dorothy A., Portsmouth, VA
Bobby was great. Very helpful, knowledgeable, and pleasant. I appreciated him sharing his expertise with no pressure to do any services. I would highly recommend him to others, in fact, already have done so.
Jamie Old, Suffolk, VA
Bob Nance was very friendly, easy to communicate with, and knowledgeable. He took his time evaluating our old tree leaning over the lake and determined it was healthy and worthy of removing the decay at the top. The service was later performed by two young gentlemen, again very cordial and knowledgeable, who climbed the tree using a series of rope supports to safely manage their way through the upper branches to position themselves to safely do the surgery. A job well planned and executed.
Kenneth M, Suffolk, VA
Bobby was so awesome for going above and beyond, to get the lost mulch chips to us, even delivering them at six AM. You are all wonderful. Thanks for taking care of us and our trees.
Victoria T., Chesapeake, VA
Bobby Nance called me on Tuesday October 6th to let me know that he would send a crew out to my house on Wednesday October 7th to prune and trim my shrubs. Bobby told me around 1pm, but the guys showed up around 11:30. Their names are Jake and Chris. They pruned and trimmed the shrubs and cleaned up the debris to my liking. I am very satisfied with their work. The shrubs now look the way they did when Bobby himself used to trim them. Not only did Jake and Chris professionally trim the shrubs, but they were also pleasant, courteous, and talkative, during the visit. That goes a long way in my book. In short, I am happy with the trimming and pruning work as well as Jake’s and Chris's professionalism. I will continue to use Bartlett for my landscaping and maintenance needs.
Michael K., Portsmouth, VA

The knowledge of Bobby Nance and DW has been impressive. I am looking for results from the first application, but in the meantime,I could not be happier.
Terri W., Norfolk, VA
At the time of stay-at-home orders due to the coronavirus, not only do we have to care for our own health and well being, but for our outdoor environment. We put our trust in Bartlett to care for that which we ourselves cannot care for at this time. Guided by Bobby Nance, a crew converged on our property and addressed the problem of a major overhanging tree limb, which in any given storm could take out our entire backyard. Each of the men on the ground was responsible for managing his individual rope and the climber perched high above, worked his chainsaw. As the hours passed, the branch was carefully brought to the ground. The job was completed. The yard appeared untouched. Thank you to all the men and women in the communities who brave the services which we ourselves cannot perform.
Charles and Susan K., Portsmouth, VA
We are very appreciative of all the work Bartlett Tree Experts performed for us. We especially want to thank Bobby Nance for his expert advice and for his team's expert work on our property.

I switched from ALM to Bartlett Tree service because of Bobby Nance. I consider him more of a friend than a vendor. Looking forward to putting in three new trees in the weeks to come.
