What Our Customers Are Saying About Greg Portzline

The experience has been positive thus far. When posed with a potential issue with our Cherry Trees, I called Bartlett and they were able to response quickly to determine the issue. At the same visit a treatment plan was developed and has been started. The staff was friendly and responsive to our needs. The crew member who performed the tree treatment wore all the necessary safety equipment and posted the area as expected. Great job.
Don N., Baldwinsville, NY

Great job and great work. Very professional and worked efficiently. Great job would highly recommend.

Trish L., Camillus, NY

My service was done sooner than expected and the result was more than I expected. Our arborist was very pleasant and understanding, he explained everything in complete detail to me and worked with me to come up with a plan. The crew was absolutely amazing, they were kind, polite, and did the most amazing job, there was not a twig or leaf left in my yard. I could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you for making this process so easy. Very grateful you were able to save our trees. We look forward to having you back in the future.
Sarah G., Camillus, NY

Technician friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable.
Donna M., Oswego, NY

Your crews are very professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Always a professional job from Bartlett Tree.
Kevin F., Camillus, NY

We have been in a relationship with Bartlett for years. They are experts in tree management and care. We have had various projects done by them, always professionally and courteously. Greg Portzline , our Bartlett representative, is a thoughtful and competent leader of the team. He is extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. The crew members are all intelligent, considerate, and skilled in working with our trees. They are the best. I really can not say enough about how thankful we are that we called Bartlett the first time. Since then, as our yard has aged, we have seen them every year to treat our Ashes, remove trees, and fertilize. Last year we had the crew raise the canopy of some of our trees. They did an excellent job and now our formerly muddy lawn is flourishing in the light. Everyone associated with Bartlett has been very competent and a pleasure to work with. We trust them to do what needs to be done and do it very well.
Elizabeth C., Fulton, NY

Excellent effort to get trees treated due to the constant change in weather. Team persevered. Thank you.

Bartlett Representative, Gregg, was extremely kind to drop by my residence after meeting him at a nearby appointment at a friends place of business by chance.

The crew was phenomenal. Although we are satisfied overall, we do have one branch on our front Oak tree that I would love to have nipped away from the house a touch more. I did not mention it sooner, because it is minor and I thought we could do ourselves, but it is slightly out of reach. I would appreciate any assistance with this if possible. Thank you.

This was our second experience with Bartlett Tree Experts. We had a lot of limbs down in our back yard after the line of severe storms blew thru in October. The cable that they installed last probably save our house from being damaged as it prevented the tree from splitting and falling on the house. The clean up of the limbs and branches was done quickly and completely. Bartlett Tree experts is highly recommended by us.
Robert S., Camillus, NY

We live in a 1970's era development with lots of wonderful older trees. Our goal was to maintain and care for what was already here as best we could. Greg was very professional, and knowledgeable. He thoroughly accessed the trees and shrubs on our property as well as our concerns with them. Greg developed a plan for how to best care for what we have and promote their continued longevity through treating, trimming, pruning, and cabling as to complete removal. The crew that performed the work did a great job. They left the area spotless. Interaction with the office staff at Bartlett was easy and efficient . All in All a very pleasant experience working with this company.

Anthony B., Liverpool, NY

I am very happy with the service we have been provided by our representative, Greg Portzline. He arrived on time, was thorough and honest with us. He knew exactly what was wrong with our Colorado Blue Spruce trees and did not mince words. He did not offer us false hopes that they would spring back to life after a year. It could take up to five to see results. He knows his stuff and was professional and courteous. I felt comfortable with him and his assessment of our situation. Bartlett has an excellent reputation which is why we went with them. My little sister in Rome, NY uses them also and loves them. Please keep doing what you are doing because it works. You are heads and tails above the competition. Class act.
