Steve W., Adamstown, MD
Dan was awesome. He came to address a splitting issue with our Red Maple tree and quickly assessed that it probably could be saved, it is a memorial tree, with proper stabilization methods to help the tree heal. He also assessed two other trees which required attention to bring them back to a healthy condition. The crew and Dan did an outstanding job and we are very pleased.
Roy S., Frederick, MD
When our large Elm split in a severe windstorm, Dan Yates got his men to the site that evening to stabilize the tree, then a crew the next day to take it down. Saved our electric line and sunroom roof.
Virginia B., Frederick, MD
A great experience started with Dan Yates. As we walked our property and discussed what we were experiencing, his professional expertise provided us with remedies, reactive, and preventative. The recommendations would ensure our trees and gardens were treated properly for growth and disease. The timely response for a winter cut back occurred within a week of Dans on site visit. The crew was wonderful to work with. The follow-up by Jill reflected Bartlett's desire for personal customer service.
Ed and Margaret C., Frederick, MD
The crew that was sent to my house to do the work were wonderful and as usual, did a great job. They even brought up my empty garbage can that was on the curb for pickup to the house. What service. Dan, my Bartlett Arborist, is very knowledgeable and helpful. I always enjoy talking to him.
Sandy M., Middletown, MD
Dan Yates has always been very professional and thorough in his assessment of our property's needs. He saved my Japanese Maple that was badly damaged during one of our worst snow storms. I really appreciate that he takes his time discussing any concerns I have. The experiences I have had with any of his staff has always been great. I find his quotes for taking care of our trees during the seasons fairly priced. We have many trees and shrubs that need attention throughout the year to remain healthy. Dan will call and make an appointment to come and check on their condition a few times a year. He watches out for his customers.
Pat F., Adamstown, MD
Dan was great, professional, and interested in preserving my interests and investment.

Dan Yates has been my only Arborist for years. He is knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. The crew that came out to clean up some large limbs from a recent storm were top notch. They rigged down the large pieces to help prevent further damage to our property. Excellent clean up.
Scott B., Adamstown, MD
Dan and his crew were awesome. Complete professionals and knew exactly what they were doing. Great safety standards as well.
Abby S., New Market, MD
Dan and your crew is just finishing up, they did a beautiful job. I could not believe how much was taken away from each tree but it was done so well aesthetically it looks very natural. They were also polite, skilled, and left the place immaculate.

Dan Yates was extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and very helpful. The work done by the three crew members was extraordinary. I was very impressed by their skill.

Jim A., Middletown, MD
I love that Dan's technicians always check in with me the evening before the service.
Amy D., Ijamsville, MD
Dan and his crew are a treasure. I met him after getting less than wonderful tree work done by another company. We are now confirmed Bartlett customers. We like things done right. Crew consults with me as the job progresses about how severe to prune.
Ginny B., Frederick, MD
The men who came out were so nice. They each talked to me and let me ask all my silly senior questions. The trees looked so proud and happy after their sprucing up. Dan, you are a wonderful person to work with from the customers side as well as the employee side.
Kathy S., Frederick, MD
The crew members were wonderful, very professional, polite, and did a wonderful job. They left the work site better than they found it in terms of sweeping up. I always enjoy talking with Dan Yates. I have used other tree companies but they come no where near your standards. I have and will continue to recommend your company to my friends and neighbors.
Sandy M., Middletown, MD
Dan's depth of knowledge was truly impressive. He took his time telling us what could be done to take care of our trees. he even mentioned a few things that should be done by us. When does anyone give you information to help you that does not directly profit them? We are looking forward to our trees thriving with the help of Dan and the Bartlett staff.

Dan Yates was outstanding when providing an estimate. Patiently answered all our questions. It was almost like a miniature class in botany. Very interesting. Probably the only time I've actually had "fun" when getting a work estimate for the house. Tim S., Burkittsville, MD

Dan Yates is very knowledgeable and we trust his judgment/recommendations. Doug & Cheryl S., Hagerstown, MD
Bartlett staff was knowledgeable and friendly. During the estimate, Dan gave me tips about other shrubs in our yard. I took his advice to apply Bayer Advanced Tree & Shrub treatment to our azaleas and they have begun to perk up just as he said they would. The Bartlett staff who did the work were courteous and efficient. They took the time to explain exactly what they would do to each tree on the property. They did a lot of work all over the yard. When I arrived home, the trees looked great and there was no sign of debris in the yard. Maura L., Frederick, MD
