What could Bartlett have done to make the experience better?Nothing, your guys were wonderful. They came to our need on a Saturday afternoon with smiles on their faces and got down to business. Crew leader stopped by first, with his family in tow to check out our needs. He took his family home and returned to help the others. Very dedicated to his job and to the company. John Wayne followed up the following week to check out other concern we had about a large tree in the front yard. That work will be performed by your company shortly. Thank you for your wonderful service. All of the guys were wonderful, especially the tree climber. Best of the best. We used John Wayne years ago and the service now is just as good if not better.

Everyone was outstanding. Exhibited professionalism beyond reproach. We had a fairly complex removal. It was a ballet in motion. Deliberate, flawless, and executed to perfection. Very impressive. We had high expectations for High Country/Bartlett and they delivered. Would highly recommend John Wayne and his team.
David S., Brevard, NC

Just a quick note to comment on the work that your crew accomplished this afternoon. Clearly the situation posed by the removal of the tree that fell was a technical challenge. All of the neighbors who observed the remediation work were impressed by the professionalism of your crew, their courage, their creativity, and their ingenuity. The crew accomplished their mission with expediency and care. But it was more than that. It was a job that was extremely well done. Our complements to you and your crew. You and your staff are a valued resource in the community.
Ken K., Brevard. NC

I very much appreciate how my job was handled. John Wayne discussed what and how things were going to be done and was here when the crew arrived to start the work. The entire crew was very professional and courteous throughout the day, even when it rained on them. This crew was a great improvement over a crew that came to work here two years ago. I appreciate the care they took with my property.
Suzanne J., Brevard, NC

John Wayne continues his amazing reputation from his original business High Country. His crew members are incredible, talented, and obviously skillfully trained. His equipment is in top condition. I could not be happier with the work they perform. Anytime locals happen to be in a conversation about needing tree work done, John's name will come up. There are lots of "2 men and a chainsaw" businesses in this area and I am convinced that High Country and now Bartlett stand as the gold standard.
Kerry W., Brevard. NC

Excellent work completed by your crew. Adam executed leadership and professionalism!
Linda W., Brevard, NC

Thank you so much for the work recently completed at PFES. Removal of the dead trees around our playground was a much needed improvement. Your company was very professional and courteous while on our campus. Because of your generosity and care, our school is a safer and better place to be. How wonderful it is to have the support of people like you in our school community.
Tonya T., Pisgah Forest, NC

I was delighted with the professional and courteous treatment that the staff showed me and my property. The service they provide is worth the price.
