What Our Customers Are Saying About D.W. Coble
My new Arborist is great. He took the time to answer questions and understand my concerns and goals for my trees and other plants. My desire to have plants that will thrive and provide color and beauty throughout the year. I so appreciated his interest and knowledge.

To be fair your staff has been nothing but customer service oriented and charitable. I note that as your are servicing Hero Kids Foundation 501(c)3 here in Suffolk, Virginia. As such your staff takes the time to help us understand what we have, how to grow it from helping them to live, to being sustainable for the community we serve, to be able to come out and pick fruit from the trees. If I was to note, anything, they could do better, spend more time at Hero Kids Foundation. Mr. Coble is exceptional and takes the time to teach this old knuckle dragging Pollock to be a better steward to our Orchards. He has also taken personal time to come out and help Hero Kids Foundation and anytime he can assist he notes it is due to the company he works for wanting to impact the community and do so with groups and nonprofits that focus on just that. Mr. Cobb is an impressive young man with an excellent energy to serve.

D.W .is the perfect blend of a personable yet technically strong Arborist Representative.
Robert M., Suffolk, VA
The crew did everything they could to be respectful of the plantings in my yard. There was damage to some of the plants, but no more than is to be expected from having large limbs removed from above a perennial border. All were respectful, courteous, and efficient. Even removed bags of other plant material I had in the yard while they were at it.
Vickie R., Norfolk, VA
Your team at Bartlett is extraordinary. Very customer focused. We are glad to have you as our tree service company and our arborist. Very pleased with service, quality of your people and overall product. Thank you.
Jeff Y., Suffolk, VA
The person who recently came out we did not know. However, we were very happy talking with him about a problem tree. He seems very knowledgeable just like all the arborists who treated our Japanese Maples. Our current arborist D. W. Cobble is very knowledgeable and goes beyond our expectations to determine potential problems.
Harriet Dunlap, Portsmouth, VA
Absolutely top notch. I can not think of anything that would have made my experience with Bartlett and with Arborist, D.W, any better. All aspects of my encounter with both your office staff and with D.W. were wonderful. I very much appreciated the time D.W. took to explain the issues with my Arborvitae and how the problems were being addressed. I learned a lot and I very much enjoyed the conversation with D.W. I will not hesitate to recommend Bartlett to others.
