More about Gavin Thomas

Originally from England, Gavin moved with his family to central New Jersey at age ten. In 2012, he graduated from Eckerd College with a B.A. in Sociology and Political Science. His time at university cultivated a deep-seeded appreciation for nature, and once graduated, Gavin dove headfirst into the green industry, working for various agriculture and landscaping organizations.

After accomplishing his lifelong dream of hiking the Appalachian Trail, Gavin was enamored of a life spent underneath the tree canopy and decided to pursue a career in arboriculture, which led him to join Bartlett Tree Experts. He quickly became an expert Climber, and held roles as Aerial lift Operator, and Plant Health Care Specialist prior to becoming an Arborist Representative.

Gavin is an ISA Certified Arborist and a Pennsylvania certified Pesticide Applicator.

In his free time, Gavin can be found strumming his guitar on the porch, pondering his next hiking adventure, or tending to his vegetable garden. He and his wife, Emma, hope to instill their love of trees, dirt, and the outdoors in their young daughter.

Lauren L., Lansdowne, PA

Gavin Thomas, along with crew members, Paul and Chip, made the entire experience worthwhile. They were informative, pleasant, courteous, and professional. Many thanks for all that you do.
Denise S., Upper Darby, PA

Gavin is a great representative. He is very responsive whenever I have a question, answering promptly and pleasantly. He also anticipates concerns. For example, just this week, he called to let me know that my next door neighbor wanted to cut back some branches of one of my trees because they were hanging over our fence onto their property. Gavin identified two specific cuts that would address their issue but would not harm my tree. He realized that I might be worried about the tree and called in advance to explain the plan and to answer any concerns. That kind of service is very professional and very appreciated.
Catherine M., Philadelphia, PA

My backyard was cleaner after the tree service was performed. Bartlett has been my "go to" company for all of my tree and shrub work.
Jim S., Philadelphia, PA

All of the staff were friendly and did the job well. Explained everything that was necessary.
Carolyn K., Drexel Hill, PA

They were very efficient and quiet. I barely noticed them there and suddenly the tree was pruned, and the space cleaned. They are the people I trust with the care of my trees.
Mathilde P., Philadelphia, PA

Very courteous and professional. Thanks.
John O., Lansdowne, PA

I can not think of any way you can improve on these very skilled technicians. I can suggest that you pay them more. This did not come up in conversation, but it is my personal opinion that they deserve a high level of compensation. Your staff is obviously very well trained, and have great knowledge of trees, and how to take good care of them. I always feel confident that my tree technicians will do an outstanding job. And I am always right.
Mary Lou R., Springfield, PA

Gavin Thomas came back after the pruning to explain what they did and why it was different than my expectations. He was clear and convincing. Thank you. Our small property has four trees, and all are doing well with Bartlett care.
Nancy S., Philadelphia, PA

Very knowledgeable and flexible to our needs.
Heather R., Glenside, PA

I really appreciated the check in when they arrived to talk through the work plan and checking in when they were leaving for the day. The communication was great. Also, they did a great job cleaning up, lots of little branches and bark was all picked up and yard left better than when they started. I will definitely look to Bartlett for future needs and would definitely recommend to neighbors.
Kevin H., Springfield, PA

Gavin was great. He contacted me to see if I was satisfied and came to my home to understand my concerns. He did the additional trimming himself, leaving me a totally satisfied customer. I will call you again for any tree care.
Ilene C., Havertown, PA

All good. Very polite and willing to engage.
Stella T., Havertown, PA

All went well through the process of planning and implementation. No need to change anything.

You guys are gentle on the trees. This is meant in a good way.
Ted S., Broomall, PA

The only word I can use is OUTSTANDING. I especially like them keeping me informed and also answering any questions I have and if they do not know they research it and get back to me.
Michael D., Springfield, PA

The arborist went out of his way to provide an estimate, despite recovering from COVID-19. His crew members did a beautiful job. They were complete professionals. They put safety first in protecting the area. They cleaned up all the debris as if no tree work was even done. In addition, Gavin went out of his way to meet my deadline, despite the five days of rain during the prior week. This was excellent customer service from start to finish.
Kathryn N., Havertown, PA
