What Our Customers Are Saying About Daniel Howland
Entire crew was terrific. Daniel Howland was everything you would want in a service provider. I heartily recommend Bartlett to any homeowner who wants to have superlative care provided to their plants and trees.
Alan B., Seattle, WA
Consider me a big fan of Bartlett Tree. The quote was thorough and accurate. The two arborists and the assistant were very respectful of my yard, I apologize for the dog poop. But really the best thing was the quality of the pruning. Very thoughtful, pragmatic, and smart. Excellent work on the Perotia, coral bark. Thanks to the crew who worked on my twenty trees. I prize my collection of trees and have seen a fair number of shoddy workmanship. But this crew really knew what they were doing and how best to do it.
Marlese K., Seattle, WA
Everyone was wonderful to work with. I was amazed at their skill in removing even the highest damaged branches. They were incredibly pleasant and respectful to me and my property taking great care to protect foliage under the areas they were working on and cleaning up everything so well. They also cut off a tall thin branch of another tree and carted it off which was not on the plan but much appreciated.
Extremely skillful and a true pleasure to work with. Highly recommend Bartlett.
Ellen K., Seattle, WA
Everyone with whom I interacted at Bartlett was highly responsive, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. The quote for the work was provided quickly and with a clear breakdown of costs. When the crew assigned to my job was running late, I was immediately notified. Another crew was able to step in and arrive right on time. I would recommend Bartlett highly, and will definitely use their services in future.
Tonia S., Seattle, WA
Every step of the way, from the estimate to the completion of the work, the Bartlett employees were outstanding as professionals. I could not be happier with the job they did.
Deborah W., Seattle, WA
We will continue to call on you for pruning services. Could not be happier. One of our neighbors commented how careful your crew was with parking your trucks. A challenging situation because of other construction work, trucks on the street. We are also very impressed with the professionalism of your office, confirming follow up, paperwork.
Keri C., Seattle, WA
The representative was very easy to communicate with and sought our input after the work was done to ensure that it was completed to our satisfaction with each step of the project. The crew was very professional and efficient. They did a final check with us on the work before doing the clean up, which was outstanding. The crew dealt with great professionalism with adversarial weather earlier on and followed their safety rules before resuming the work. They were also very compliant with COVID precautions.
Stuart W., Seattle, WA
We have had Daniel provide quotes on a few projects.he has always been professional, quick to provide follow-up or respond, and explains everything easily so we non-arborists can understand and make the best decisions. He is great.
Gina C., Seattle, WA
Everyone was so professional and nice. All my questions were answered. Recommendations about future work and upkeep were explained well. Although the work on my trees was not an emergency, I appreciate how quickly the crew was able to come out to do the job. I appreciate how careful everyone was about the surrounding landscape. I was in awe of the woman who backed the cherry picker into my driveway. That was a first. Great entertainment for the little kids next door.
Janis A., Seattle, WA
The initial arborist visit was cordial and very informative. Together we decided on the best work plan. The pruning crew was prompt, expert, and friendly. In addition to the basic work, they gladly agreed to make several needed pruning cuts on other than the main tree for which I had asked their help. Afterward, they shoveled me out a tarp's worth of chips, all I have room for at a time, and offered to bring me more when they are in the neighborhood. A week or two later, their tree health specialist arrived to fertilize our Hemlock with injections of a slow release, high nitrogen liquid. He advised me on methods of watering the tree during our driest months. The tree is now looking forward to a happier life. The total work was relatively simple but will make a big difference on this small property. I have asked our condominium association board to retain Bartlett as our vendor for all future tree questions and work on this property.
Janet H., Seattle, WA
Daniel was very professional in consulting with me to set up the pruning and cabling of my eighty year old Grand Fir. A joy to work with someone so professional and knowledgeable. From first contact to final inspection all the interactions with him, the main office, and the work crew were excellent. The work was done promptly and above my expectations. The crew obviously knew what they were doing, and it was a fun experience to watch such expert arborists at work. They were respectful of my next-door neighbors properties. Everything was completely cleaned up after the work was completed. I recommend them without reservations.
Aaron B., Seattle, WA
We really appreciated the professional work all of your staff and crew. They were punctual, which seems to be increasingly rare, and very safety focused. We were pleased that they had and used all of their safety equipment. They were very careful of all of our plants, deck, and house. They also explained all of the work that they were doing.
Don L., Seattle, WA
The Bartlett crew did a great job. The workers were prompt, efficient, and courteous. They were knowledgeable about tree structure and growth patterns and they did a nice job trimming them away from the house. The crew worked collegially together making the process a pleasant experience for everyone. They used appropriate climbing gear and trimming equipment carefully and safely. I will certainly request more work by Bartlett as the need arises. Thanks for your good work.
Meredith O., Seattle, WA
Wonderful staff and service from beginning to end. The staff was very courteous and knowledgable and checked in repeatedly to be sure I was happy with the work. Would not hesitate to recommend Bartlett to everyone I know.
Nancy M., Seattle, WA
All staff were knowledgeable and timely with information and direction. Daniel was thorough and listened carefully to my requests and issues when he evaluated my trees for developing the estimate. The crew came on time, kept me informed, communicated when needed, and thoroughly cleaned up. At the end of the job they checked with me that everything looked as expected and addressed my extra questions. I was using Bartlett for the first time. My previous company went out of business and sold their client list to Bartlett with a recommendation that similar services and quality would be provided. I agree with an absolutely unqualified yes.
Carol Sue I., Seattle, WA
I appreciate Daniel's prompt response to my request to revisit job site and take care of our third Pear tree.
Amy C., Seattle, WA
Daniel Howland is very knowledgable and personable. We felt that he gave us good advice about pruning and conveyed accurate instructions to his staff. We were very pleased with the work done by Danny, William, and Austin. They climbed and pruned our tall trees skillfully and seemed to operate with good safety standards. I was especially impressed because I felt that Daniel and the workers appreciate the forest and have a mindset to keep trees healthy.
Carolyn C., Seattle, WA
Daniel Howland gave me expert advise and communication. Both Eric and William were highly professional and completed the job on schedule and within budget. I appreciate their thorough cleanup of my yard and I would definitely hire Bartlett again.
Susan T., Seattle, WA
Daniel was knowledgeable about tree health and quick in understanding my personal expectations regarding the entire property. The crew that came our were hard working, competent, respectful, and a pleasure.
Shannon D., Seattle, WA
Very professional ,values customer’s concerns, and give valuable options.
Aurora M., Seattle, WA
I wish to let Bartlett know how happy I am with the work that was done yesterday. I have been a bit concerned about having anyone prune my trees. Daniel Howland has been professional in his dealings and showing up when he schedules and sending me the paperwork. Travis was a master at manipulating the bucket up through the branches. He did a fine job of removing dangling branches and taking care of where they fell. They made this first job of tree care a pleasant affair.
Carol W., Lake Forest Park, WA
The staff was very knowledgeable and professional. Thank you for an amazing job. My trees are very happy.
Lynn D., Everett, WA
From initial estimate to job completion, everyone was attentive and focused on the needs of the customer. Well done.
