Outstanding team that worked with great focus, organized, and coordinated with one another. I was really impressed with their team focus and customer friendly approach. I strongly recommend the Bartlett tree team for their home improvement and maintenance.
Nathan N., San Antonio, TX

I appreciate your professional staff. I do not have to worry about the quality of the work or the attention to detail.
Steve H., San Antonio, TX

Everyone I have dealt with at Bartlett Tree Experts has been friendly, professional, and customer focused. Every question I asked was answered promptly and I have no complaints at all.
Randy W., San Antonio, TX

We can maintain our yard and trees at a certain level of care, but we rely on Bartlett for important work in maintenance, restoration, and health. Our arborist, Jacob West, is a great help. Our "warrior" crew of Chris and Richard are our favorites. They are professional and creative in tree shaping and salvation. We have years of drought, ice storms, and no real soil. Our Texas yard needs Bartlett Tree Experts annually.
Julie W., Spring Branch, TX

I found the crew attentive, professional, and seemed genuinely happy to be doing their job well.
Jo Anne S., San Antonio, TX

I am trusting Bartlett Tree Services with the care and feeding of the tremendous, large, old Oak trees on our property. The trees are in good hands. Thank you.

Denise W., San Antonio, TX

Nineteen years ago I bought some amazing trees and my houses came with them. For that entire time Bartlett, Jacob West, and the San Antonio crew have done amazing work caring for them for me. I cannot imagine that there is anyone better when it comes to caring for my trees.
Terry M., San Antonio, TX

Chris and his crew of two men arrived, well equipped for the work of removing our very sad Loquat tree, deteriorating in the front yard. They were courteous and worked quickly, finishing the job in just an hour. They carried off the remains off the tree and swept up afterward. The stump of the tree was left as I wanted it, low to the ground. Speaking with Chris for a few moments afterward, I was happy to learn that he had been with the company for ten years and that the employees were treated well, which is also reflected in the quality of the work. I would be happy to recommend the company to friends and neighbors.

Because I bought my tree and the house came with it seventeen years ago. Bartlett Tree Experts and Jacob have been the only business and person I have trusted with it.

Amazing.
