More about Christopher Larkin

The wooded hillsides of a dairy farm in northeast Iowa provided my first experiences in land conservation and forest management. The local 4-H program gave me the knowledge and skills necessary for success at Iowa State. I earned a BS degrees in Forest Management and Education. Summer internships with the Waterloo Iowa Forestry Department and the Iowa Extension Education Service added to my commitment to provide the best advice for the care of the urban landscape. In 1987, I moved to Maryland, started my career with Bartlett Tree Experts as a ground man and within three years I was a foreman and began using my knowledge to advice clients on care for their landscape. Professional skills development continues through numerous industry educational seminars. I currently have certifications as a Maryland Licensed Tree Expert, ISA Certified Arborist and Maryland and District of Columbia Certified Pesticide Applicator. The most enjoyable part of my day is meeting with my clients to assist them in making decisions for the health, safety, and care of their landscape.

Everyone was very professional and helpful in addressing our questions and concerns about the trees, and providing advice about how much should be cut off so that they are not damaged. This is our third time using the company to trim and cut our trees and each time we were pleased with the work and the way they cleaned up when the job was completed. Thank you.

We had an unusual situation with our tree. As the tree crew made their first cut into the trunk of the tree, after all the limbs had been removed, they discovered a large hive of honey bees. They stopped work at that point for that day. I was able to contact the local beekeepers association and with the help of the tree crew putting a covering over the open trunk and making the next cut further down below the hive, many of the bees were saved and relocated.

Chris Larkin was fabulous in explaining what needed to be done for my holly trees. The "tree guys" were very professional and did amazing work the pruning trees. Not one holly leaf was left for me to clean up. I will definitely use your company again if I need additional work. Thank you.
