James Riddle is very knowledgable about trees. His guidance was invaluable to someone on a budget but also committed to the trees health. He was able to help prioritize my needs and develop a list of next steps. He is very personable and was proactive in resolving potential property line issues to my satisfaction.

Mark, P., San Ramon
James Riddle, our Bartlett arborist has been amazing. We called him at 8:30am on a stormy Sunday to report our large old Modesto Ash had fallen. He was at our house within 30 minutes. They secured the tree, as it was leaning against another large tree, and were back at 7:45 am Monday morning to begin the removal. They finished by noon on Tuesday, and were an amazing crew! I will definitely recommend Bartlett to family and friends when they are in need. Thank you.
Carol K., Walnut Creek
James was knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt. Would absolutely recommend him and his crew!
Linda W., Walnut Creek CA
The Bartett staff were very professional and the crew was very knowledgeable and informative about their assigned job. The crew were friendly, approachable , and open to my questions and willingly answered them when asked. They were very professional and highly competent with their work. We were very pleased to see such professionalism and communication amongst the crew and our arborist representative. James Riddle, our representative made my decision to hire your company very easy . James was very receptive to my requests and his professional approach to what was needed for our property was comforting and not over whelming ( as a first time home owner and new to the whole concept of owning trees, it can be overwhelming and confusing). James was very communicative about what the job entailed and what I can do and also be aware of for the future. Bartlett was highly recommended to me by a friend and I have to say I will and already have passed on your companies name and also James name. I will need Bartlett Tree Experts help in the future and will not hesitate to hire your company again. Thanks for a great job!
