They simply do not make them like Doug anymore. It is hard to find good, reliable help nowadays from someone you can trust. He was responsive, communicative, and assessed my tree damage relatively quickly and provided a variety of solutions. I will absolutely be using Bartlett moving forward for all of my tree care needs. Thank you.
Phil H., Eatontown, NJ

Doug is a brilliant diagnostician and eloquent professor. Should have a You Tube outlet for his insightful thinking. He leads a phenomenal crew of artful hard workers and astute analysts. Was blessed to have this extraordinary group in my trees and on the ground.
Harry L., Rumson, NJ

Doug is a professional. He provided any info we requested. I was HOA president two years ago when we brought in Bartlett about the Ash borers and I know our community has been very happy with all of Bartlett services. The crew were very proficient in what they were doing - it is a great job. Bartlett gives you the whole picture when they approach any job. When we had them in for the Ash borer problem, Doug presented background of the insect, how we could protect our trees, and how we should go forward with our trees that were infected.
Barbara R., Manasquan, NJ

Though it took over three months before we were able to finalize a schedule, the job was well done and the crew was courteous. I recommended Bartlett to my other neighbor next door.

David M., Little Silver, NJ

Bartlett Tree Service has done a number of tree pruning and tree removal projects on my property for the past few years. I hired them to save some beautiful Arborvitaes that had beetles, they maintain my Box Woods annually, all timely and according to agreed upon contract. Doug Kniss makes himself available whenever I call, and is always quick to come by and check out something that I may think be troubling my landscape. They send an expert, professional crew all the time who work quickly, safely and well together. A few of the guys have been on the same team for a few years so that makes you feel comfortable there will be no accidents and they work so good together. They show up on time, complete the job well, being courteous and professional the whole time. They leave the property clean and always check to be sure before they leave that the job is done satisfactorily. I HIGHLY recommend Bartlett Tree Service of RED BANK, NJ for all your landscape needs and ask for Doug Kniss, he's the BEST. Iwill have him and his crew back year after year.

Doug is extremely knowledgeable and willing to listen to the client’s ideas or concerns for her property. The friendly, experienced crew worked very hard and with great care on the trees and shrubs. I highly recommend Bartlett to all who value their trees and shrubs. I will put you on speed dial for the next time I need your services.
Patricia T., Matawan, NJ

Doug was on time and not only looked at the Dogwood trees, my reason for calling, but the whole property. He told me Bill was a superb pruner, and he was. After the Dogwoods, he pruned all the Hydrangeas. He also did some tying up with the Arborvitae at the rear. I am very satisfied with the service, and wish I had known about the company last April when the heavy snowstorm broke the Dogwoods. But now I do, It was a neighbor on Forrest Ave. who told me about your company, quite by chance. I am grateful.
Vera S., Fair Haven, NJ

Douglas and the crew were courteous and professional. It is clear they are committed to tree health and saving them to any extent possible.
Susan M., Red Bank, NJ

All left with a new understanding of current threats and best care practices.
Mary J., Ocean, NJ

Doug Kniss has maintained our property for almost a decade. His knowledge and insights are always exact. He goes above and beyond what is required and has always been there for storm emergencies. Our trees are very old and Doug has kept them healthy so our property and in fact Rumson Rd are a testament to his commitment to the finest service. We highly recommend Bartlett because of Doug and his team and would never use any other company.
