What Our Customers Are Saying About Brad Buker

We called Brad as we had an emergency with a tree that was the centerpiece of our property. The tree had started to split apart and we needed an expert to see what could be done to save it. Immediately Brad came out and viewed what was happening. He was extremely knowledgeable in recommending the options available to us for saving our tree. Next his crew came out and before they started working, introduced themselves to us, and explained in detail the tasks they were going to accomplish towards saving our tree. They performed spectacularly even though the weather was not cooperating, it was raining, windy, it was miserable. Through all of this they never stopped working and when they were finished, we were very pleased with their high quality of workmanship. I would recommend Bartlett for their quality workmanship. They are a great team of people with outstanding customer service.

Brad Buker is great. When I have a problem he is right there. I recently had a limb come down. He was out the next day to check it out. He arranged for the guys to come out on Wednesday to cut it up. I had a neighbor who had a similar problem and I referred Brad to her.

Liz G., Schaumburg, IL

Robert M., Hoffman Estates, IL

Brad has been a good communicator and adjusted the crew to our needs as requested for this season's pruning of our fruit orchard. We are grateful for the relationship and for the good work with Bartlett at the Midwest Companies and properties.
Christa O., Maple Park, IL

From chatting with Brad at the home show, booking appointments thru Kris, and getting the job done by Ian, Harry, and Martinez our experience with Bartlett Tree Experts could not have gone better. We had three quotes and true to our practice we went with the middle of the road price and gut feeling of 'this one's right'. Ian Harry and Martinez worked quickly, safely, and left no clues that they were even here except for our now 'trimmed up" and 'cabled' Sugar Maples and Arborvitaes. A follow up call questioning our satisfaction the next day wrapped it all up in a perfectly beautiful customer service bow. Fives stars is not enough.
Bernadette R., DeKalb, IL

Brad and the crew were very nice, informative, and professional from start to finish. They did a wonderful job pruning our trees and they look fantastic. I highly recommend them.
Marita K., St. Charles, IL

Bartlett Tree Experts have removed fallen trees, pruned, and cabled trees in our yard. Brad B. has been responsive and very professional. He is also quite knowledgeable. The crew was polite and hardworking. We plan to continue to use their services.
Kristin B., Bartlett, IL

The first crew that came out implemented safety zones around all their work areas . To watch them perform their task was like watching a conductor conduct a symphony. The three main crew moved as one without any wasted steps. They were all courteous and friendly.
Scott C., Sleepy Hollow, IL

Everybody I have had contact with has been wonderful. Even the job I had done on my personal property.

The crew was awesome. They were efficient and hard working. They did an excellent job in removing damaged branches and trimming up the tree.

Susan H., St. Charles, IL

Called Bartlett Tree Experts on behalf of my elderly parents. They had two evergreen trees that were damaging the rear of the house. Brad B. was very professional. He visited the house, advised my parents he was there and would be in the yard. Received a written quote for the removal, which included removing the stumps and all debris. Crew came mid-day and both trees were taken down, stumps removed, pinecones raked. Very, very pleased with the professionalism, service, and courtesy from everyone at Bartlett.
Kittie K., Streamwood IL

Your crew came out yesterday and did a great job pruning our maple tree. They did everything per the specs in your proposal. They got out all the dead wood without drastically altering the shape of the tree. Talking with them I found out that prior to coming to our house they were at the house of my friend in Streamwood, whom I referred to you after the storm two weeks ago. Based on the work your guys did, I will definitely recommend Bartlett to anyone else I know who needs to have tree work done.
Ken V., Schaumburg, IL

Brad was very helpful as well as knowledgeable. When trimming my birch tree, the crew even hung my birdhouse better than it was before. The entire experience was great. Thanks for a job well done.
Linda W., St. Charles, IL

Brad is a knowledgeable, pleasant, caring, and professional. He respects your intelligence and shares what you need to know. We will definitely use Bartlett again and know that we will receive fair prices and excellent service. The lady on the phone, and the men who came to do the work are caring, well trained, knowledgeable people with excellent communication skills. There are no other tree companies like this one.
