The experience is top notch.

There is nothing that could have been done better. The crew was top notch and got all the pruning done quickly and cleaned up thoroughly. Everyone involved was friendly and professional. The crew was very focused on safety.
Camaron, Hudsonville, MI
Everyone always very friendly, courteous, and above all, professional. Last assignment was a tricky tree removal. Tree was located between house and garage near an ornamental tree that had to be protected. Crane was used and struts had to be placed very carefully near garage and another mature tree while avoiding damage to surrounding shrubs. Placement was accomplished with perfection, mere inches from plantings and a garden statue. Well done. Removal of tree and stump done - no complaints.
Mark, South Haven, MI
No issues, just waiting until spring to appreciate the results of the trimming. Our arborist was courteous. I did a walk around with the team leader who listened and answered questions. The team was knowledgeable of what the arborist’s report indicated. All went well as it was my first experience with trimming in the winter. They finished just as the snow started.
Karen , South Haven, MI
I was impressed by the work done by the crew who did the root invigoration. They were efficient and professional-and it is hard work.

Mike S., South Haven, MI
Kevin is amazing. I thought I was going to have to cut down my two trees and he brought them back to life. We are so thankful for him. A tree is a small thing, but our family spends hours under that tree. Thanks for going above and beyond.

Sally B., Grandville, MI
I was gone on vacation while Bartlett came and trimmed our trees. When I arrived home, the trees looked great, and everything was very cleaned up. Great job.
Ryan D., Hudsonville, MI
I did not see any issues, so I felt the experience was well handled and professionally managed. Kevin Nietering had alerted me to the long delay prior to work being done, so I appreciated that, and I did not need to inquire to be informed that work was being completed. So, that was well done. Also, when a small issue arose regarding the work, the crew leader informed me of the situation, and it was resolved quickly.
My experience with the arborist, crew members, and the quality of work reinforced why I am pleased to continue working with Bartlett going forward.
Matthew D., Jenison, MI
Richard K., Zeeland, MI
Your crew was efficient and very polite. Your representative was very nice and helpful. Although bamboo is not in the realm of tree service he gave me a tip on helping to get rid of it, or at least slow the spread for which I am grateful. When I need tree service in the future I will not hesitate to call Bartlett. I definitely will refer Bartlett to friends and family.
