What Our Customers Are Saying About Brian Barbre
The team that removed the tree from my roof was excellent.They worked quickly and professionally, leaving the area clean and tidy. I would never use any other company after this, my third interaction with tree removal by Bartlett. The arborist was great in contacting me right away late on a Tuesday evening; he came by on Wednesday to look at the downed tree on my roof and sent a proposal that evening. On Friday morning the crew was here at 8:00 a.m. and the tree was taken care of with no problem--Brian's assessment of the work needed was exactly right.
Rosemary B., Fredericksburg, VA
Brian has addressed and taken care of all my concerns regarding the treatment of the trees on my property. I have had a couple companies come out to do trimming and they did more damage than good. I am in good hands now.

Linda S., Fredericksburg, VA
I worked with your company and Brian over a number of years. Always courteous and got the job done in a reasonable timeframe. Left the area clean. More importantly removed the trees safely without damaging the surrounding areas. We have had some challenging issues. I have had them trim a few trees and they were careful to improve the shape and maintain the structure of the tree. The crew you sent over were courteous, worked hard, cleaned the area, and were very skilled. Really pleased with the effort.
Mark M., Fredericksburg, VA

Keith Y., Stafford, VA
From my initial contact with your office and other communications with your staff, everyone treated me with respect and courtesy. I was truly relieved when I found your company and even more excited that Brian Barbre was the Arborist assigned to my service request. During my discussions with him he demonstrated absolute care and concern for the tree in question. My son also joined in the discussion and Brian answered his many questions. Thank you Brian for listening. I feel confident in how he is handling my case and it is quite apparent he is very knowledgable in his field. All in all everything is going smoothly and I hope my tree recovers from the infection.

Margaret W., Fredericksburg, VA
I appreciated Brian stopping by to check my Service Berry and even doing a bit of pruning to prevent a branch from scraping across the screen of our bedroom window. As always, excellent service.
Ruth B., Fredericksburg, VA
Brian was great to work with.
Bill L., Fredericksburg, VA
The arborist was prompt in his arrival and very knowledgable about the downed tree and the possible causes for its fall. Everything about his demeanor was professional and positive. He was very willing to have the tree cleared away as soon as possible. The removal crew came at the time scheduled and went to work right away. They were courteous and professional in completing their work. They worked steadily and cleared the downed tree and all the debris. They left the sight free of every broken twig and leaf and even neatly stacked the deck boards which had been broken by the tree's fall. I could not have been more pleased with the work. I will definitely call Bartlett soon to schedule the removal of other potentially hazardous trees in our yard.
Rosemary B., Fredericksburg, VA
Brian Barbre has been great to work with. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging. He answers all of our questions and never makes us feel rushed through the appointment or the process for the work involved. The crews who have been sent out to our home always make quick work of the jobs we have hired them for. They leave the yard clean that you almost wonder if they were ever here. It has been a pleasure working with professionals who really know what they are talking about and get the job done thoroughly.

Donna N., Fredericksburg, VA
Brian Barbre was top notch. He was knowledgeable, affable, and exuded confidence in the projects to be completed through the winter and spring. The crew removing our tree were consummate professionals their uniforms very neat, equipment well cared for, and vehicles clean as compared to the fly-by-night tree service companies that come to our door. The crew removed a very large Beech tree in our pool enclosure expeditiously with no collateral damage. They took care to minimize their presence on the property, and after they departed, you would not know that they had been on the property at all. I am looking forward to continuing our business relationship into the future.
Ted D., Stafford, VA

Angela M., Fredericksburg, VA
Extremely professional, knowledgeable, and a helpful arborist and team. There was never any reluctance to answer any of my many questions. Arborist and team were beyond courteous, thorough, and organized. It was a pleasure working with them. Work was accomplished efficiently and carefully including cleanup. Very happy with the results.
Janet W., Fredericksburg, VA
Brian was a fantastic first impression. We had other companies survey our property and make recommendations for which trees and for what reasons to prune, many of which seemed unnecessary. Brian, on the other hand, was thoughtful and explained the necessity of all particular pruning decisions. The crew who did the work were personable and professional and left the property looking fantastic.
Heidi D., Fredericksburg, VA
Brian Barbre arrived exactly on time and provided an estimate for soil service and pruning. He inspected the trees on the rest of the property. He gave some advice on how to monitor one other currently healthy tree that could be problematic in the future due to its proximity to the house. I was at work when the crew arrived for both the soil service and pruning, but they did a nice job and left the property in good shape. It is hard to tell whether the soil service will help the tree in the long run but the service we received seems to have been sound.
Melissa A., Stafford, VA
The staff did a fabulous job. It was so refreshing to have an entire staff of professionals servicing our trees. Brian responded immediately to our needs and his recommendations were right on point. Thank you to the entire Bartlett staff for providing the kind of services we need to maintain and improve our yard. We greatly appreciate you all.
