What Our Customers Are Saying About Brian Pickett
So professional. Brian is so knowledgeable and could have told me my trees needed removal or more trimming. He only suggested a few limbs trimmed to make the tree more stable. Quality service. This company is so superior to others. They know trees.
Terry G., Knoxville, TN
The arborists were very helpful during the initial meeting. We walked around the yard to assess what needed to be done. They were able to stagger into different time frames when the various jobs could be completed. The two men that came out to do the work were very polite and accommodating, did a great job, and completely cleaned up all the debris before they left. We will definitely use them again.
Linda H., Knoxville, TN
Our experience with everyone we interacted with was excellent. Our arborist, Brian, was friendly, courteous, and prompt. He explained our situation and helped us get testing to understand better the condition of our tree.
Alice C., Lenoir City, TN
Bartlett worked with us on our two Pin Oak trees and did a fantastic job pruning and shaping them. The arborist was professional, knowledgeable, and helpful in suggestions on what to do with the Oaks and other trees in our yard. He prepared a detailed estimate within minutes and gave us plenty of options for getting things done within our budget. The Bartlett Team that pruned the trees was courteous, efficient, and thorough. We are very pleased with their service and look forward to working with them to maintain the health of our trees. Thanks for a great job.

This year marks my 30th anniversary of being a Bartlett Tree Experts customer- a very satisfied customer. From my first representative in 1988, Frank McKeever in Raleigh, North Carolina to my current rep., Brian Pickett, here in Salem, Oregon the service, professionalism, and courtesy have always been superb over the years and across the miles…consistently top-quality! If you don’t have Bartlett helping you maintain your property, you’re not realizing the maximum value, beauty and safety of your investment! These folks are simply THE best!...in the field, the lab, and in the offices.
