Gale N., Vancouver, BC
Our arborist for the last two years has been Donovan Neelin and we have found him to be very courteous, accommodating, and easy to work with. Josh, Steve, and Alec did a great job pruning all the shrubs in our front yard while Gareth was doing the difficult job of pruning our side of our neighbors's very large Holly hedge. They did a fabulous job and the hedge has never looked better, especially the job they did lowering the top.
Bartlett Tree Experts can be very proud of these crew member. All very polite, friendly, and accommodating.

Megan B., Surrey, BC
This was not an easy decision for me. Donovan really set the tone for making this successful. I felt he could be trusted from the start. Everyone was so understanding. I think the service was amazing. I will be recommending your tree service to all of my clients and friends. Thank you for taking such good care.
Suzanne M., Richmond, BC
One of my friends gave me Bartlett's name. They had a large tree taken out of their yard and the crew left the yard in a very clean manner. I was impressed with Donovan coming around and looking at the job that should be done. The branches were dropping cones and needles onto my car and cost me several hundred dollars to repair the sunroof. Since the job, there are hardly any needles. The crew was prompt, friendly, and very professional. I will pass on your company name to anyone I know who needs assistance.
Norman M., Delta, BC
We appreciate the excellent service Donovan Neelin provided in the past three years, he pays attention to our requests, did a good job, communicate well with us through emails or phone calls, he is sincere and very professional. We also want to thank Anna from the office, she is always cheerful and welcoming.
Ferly T., Vancouver, BC
Donovan provided an excellent quote for the work to be completed. He was extremely polite and efficient with answering my questions and concerns. I definitely would recommend Donovan in the future.
Sylvia J., Richmond, BC
Always great service from Donovan and the crew. I would not go any place else.
Maggie C., Delta, BC
Donovan helped us visualize how our Tulip tree would look after trimming. A great job. We will contact Bartlett for future trimming requirements.
Fred H., Richmond, BC
Donovan, Josh, and Riley were great. They took the time to prune the smaller branches with hand shears as opposed to previous companies that would just slash away with a chain saw. I am very pleased and would like Bartlett to schedule pollarding my two Plane trees each fall from now on.
Richard M., Richmond, BC
Donovan is an excellent representative. He listens well and is very friendly to talk to. The crew members did a great job. Even though it was raining they were cheerful.
Betty W., Ladner, BC
Thank for your quick response to a very worrying situation for me. I knew the Cherry tree was in a very vulnerable state should heavy winds come along. Not only would I have lost a very lovely tree, but it could have caused significant damage to the house. You have taken that worry away.
Marilyn J., Delta, BC
I really appreciated the effort put in to saving the tree rather than just cutting it down. Also, Donovan was great.
John U., Delta, BC
Donovan Neelin is knowledgeable and professional. Good advice given for our hedges and Apple tree issues. The crew that did our garden were a great team. I would highly recommend Bartlett. Friendly group of people, especially Anna who works in the office, her cheerful voice brightens the day.

The work was good and Donovan and the crew were friendly and professional.

The crew arrived on time. They were well-equipped, and worked with careful communication and safety protocols. They respected the property and plants. This company merits strong recommendation.
