We were very pleased with Brian's initial consultation. He was knowledgeable, and his recommendations clearly took into account the health and well-being of the trees. The three people who did the work were efficient, courteous, and helpful.
John M., Grand Rapids, MI

Brian has been wonderfully attentive to our very mature elm tree. We have appreciated his recommendations over many years. The crew who did the trimming/thinning last week was great, too. The tree looks rejuvenated!
Bill S., Grand Rapids, MI

It was fun to watch how the guys work. Worked very carefully and safely. Cleaned up beautifully. Kristin, Grand Rapids, MI

Bartlett is very easy to work with. You took time to make sure the details of the job were worked out before you ever came out to the house. Brian is great to work with and the crew that came to the house took time again to make sure we knew what was happening and answer any questions. We would never worry about Bartlett doing work at our home, the project will be done right. The company's follow through is great! Margo Z., Comstock Park, MI

Brian was fabulous. He explained things very well, answered all questions, and gave us realistic options for our tree. Nate showed up first the day of and was just wonderful. Again, very nice and explained, asked questions, and really made us feel involved in the process. The other gentleman that was with Nate was equally as good and professional. The free consult was great. Gave us a 'feel' for the company and made us feel comfortable in the decision we had to make. And we had others give consults - they made us feel like there were no options and we needed to make a decision NOW. You guys are great! Tricia R., Wyoming, MI
