More about Joe Harris
Joe grew up in Charlotte, Michigan, as a second-generation arborist. He spent his weekends and summers climbing trees and splitting wood. If he wasn’t at work with his father he would keep himself busy hiking, hunting or fishing.
It was in Joe’s childhood that his passion for the outdoors developed. In 2004, drawn to the warm weather, Joe found himself in San Marcos, Texas. He became intrigued with the inner workings of the arboricultural industry.
Joe studied business at Texas State University. He joined Bartlett while he was there. Joe gained experience working five years in the field as a crew leader and as an arborist climber. Recently, Joe made the transition to Arborist Representative.
An ISA Certified Arborist and a Certified Tree Care Safety Professional, Joe holds a commercial pesticide applicator license with the Texas Department of Agriculture.
Joe is a husband and father to his son and rescue dog, Duke. He and his family enjoy spending their time on the San Marcos River kayaking, fishing, and hiking. They also enjoy a good farmer’s market or a stroll around the local nurseries.
What Our Customers Are Saying About Joe Harris
Joe as well as the crew that worked on the trees were all great. Very professional and very impressive. The trees look a lot better than I thought they would based on the damage and I am very pleased with the results. The tree crew was fantastic and I can not say enough good things about them.
Casey C., Austin, TX
We have used Bartlett for almost a quarter of a century. They protect over a hundred trees at our farm. Joe Harris, our Arborist Representative, began working with us as a crew member. He is thoughtful, responsive, and a problem solver. John who does our spraying and fertilization helped us solve a problem we had with the treatment of our Italian Cypress trees. He is excellent as well. We have been so happy with Bartlett that we asked them to handle tree issues for our two children in Austin.
Roger W., Blanco, TX
Jo Harris did a great job coming out to my home quickly, talking in length about my options, and being supportive and communicative throughout the process. When it comes to trees, there is a lot I do not know and it was nice to have a professional and expert that told me exactly what needed to be done without trying to pressure me to upsell, or do extra treatments that were not necessary.
Aaron S., Austin, TX
First class professionals. Jo and his crew are prompt, experienced, courteous, and true professionals.

Jo was very knowledgeable regarding Live Oaks and whether treatment would help. He recommended a reasonable program and did not try to over sell us. John was very thorough and treated every flagged tree.
Paul J., Dripping Springs, TX
Jo has been a very professional and responsive employee, and has completed a number of jobs at my home on the Blanco near Fischer, TX clearing around large Oaks cutting a massive limb from a large Pecan on the river bottom; planting six 40-gallon young Bald Cypress along the river, and most recently coming to the rescue of my beloved old Oak tree that shades my deck. As I live in Houston, he has been willing to accommodate me with scheduling my presence for the work. I appreciate the special efforts.
Susan W., Blanco, TX
I can not say enough good things about Jo, the arborist and the tree trimming crew. My family loves trees. Jo was patient and knowledgeable when answering our questions. After conversations, Jo recommended a plan to care for our trees and we moved forward. The crew that implemented the plan was fantastic. They were incredibly respectful, tidy, and professional. I highly recommend Bartlett and will use them again in the future.

Since joining Bartlett Tree Experts, Jo Harris has been a great representative. He pro-actively follows up and provides expert guidance on the most effective care of my trees. As a repeat customer, I have had some of the same crew members come on multiple occasions, it is consistent and they know the history and status of my trees.

Both Jo and the crew were courteous , friendly, and knowledgeable. They took the time to answer my questions about the process and Oak Wilt, in general. I do appreciate that everyone practiced proper COVID 19 protocol.
Mark S., Wimberley, TX
The entire Bartlett staff was wonderful. Our arborist representative, Jo Harris, was extremely helpful with his consultation. The staff members who trimmed the trees were very courteous and explained the entire process to us. Before they vacated the property, they made sure we were satisfied with every aspect of the job. The office staff was extremely pleasant. I paid my bill in person and was treated extremely well. Thanks to all. Great experience.
Rick M., Wimberley, TX
Joe and Sam were incredible. They were communicative, helpful, and informative. I have given your information to many of my neighbors for prophylactic treatment of their trees. It is obvious that Bartlett is not only an upstanding company but also cares greatly for the trees you work with.
Pail S., Austin, TX
Jo Harris is great to work with. I have had multiple opportunities to have him come for something related to my trees and he provides sound advise, an estimate, and prompt scheduling. I may not be a big customer but have been loyal to Bartlett for over twenty years. I would not consider having any one else work on my trees.
Marinell B., Austin, TX
