Kris McDonald was very knowledgeable and professional and helped us a lot in determining what to do with our trees. The crews that did the work were courteous, skilled, did an excellent job on the trees and cleaned up very well after the tree trimming. I would certainly recommend Bartlett Tree Experts to anyone looking for a professional and knowledgeable tree consultancy company.

I can not say enough about Kristopher McDonald and his crew. Kris arrived within twenty-four hours when I had concerns about one of my trees. He was extremely knowledgeable and identified the issue quickly and went over my options. Unfortunately, the best thing was to have the tree removed. The tree had significance to me and I was notably upset and both Kris and the removal crew were very compassionate and caring. The guys on the removal crew even helped me gather up a few nice leaves and seed pods to keep and press. I really can not say enough about how knowledgeable, efficient, and compassionate they were. Thank you for the great service you provide.

Fabulous work, took the time to explain what work needed to be done on our Cedar Hedges. Came as arranged, spent the time as was agreed, cleaned up after themselves. Nothing but great things to say about Kris and his team. I would not hesitate to recommend.

Professional, knowledgeable, respectful, and very pleased with all. Was actually ashamed of neglected yard, not an issue with Bartlett Tree Experts. From initial call to quote from Kris, crew was on site within two days, very impressed with difference. I have curbside appeal now and have repeatedly recommended Bartlett Tree Experts to other community members. Thank you all for taking care of this burden.
R. R., West Kelowna, BC
Kris McDonald and his crew are very friendly, easy to talk to, very obliging, and very appreciative of the work. I really appreciate Kris's visit to the sight each spring to discuss what needs to be done, the reason for it, and the plan ahead. I find him to be one of the best arborist that I have experienced with Bartlett Tree Experts. He is very approachable and with his knowledge, I feel confident that the work is done right. The crew I have had the past few years have been very obliging. The crew member who does most of the tree work seems very knowledgeable. The crew in general are very dependable and enjoyable to have perform the work for me.
J. R., Kelowna, BC

Everyone I dealt with from office staff, tree removal crew, and stump removal crew were a pleasure to deal with and professional to boot. Job well done.
Keith M., Kelowna, BC
The office staff were great when I initially called to set up an appointment. Kris was excellent as well in setting up a date and sending me the contract and estimate. My family and I were not home when the spraying was done, but they did an excellent job.
Alexander L., Kelowna, BC
Very happy with the whole experience and great price too. We did not actually meet Kristopher or the crew as most of the correspondence was by email. This worked great for us and was extremely convenient. A quick email and phone call and the scope of work was sorted out and completed.
Andrew P., Kelowna, BC
I was very pleased with Kris McDonald's evaluation for the job to be done. The crew went beyond what was expected in an efficient and tidy manner completing the job required. I have secured Bartlett Services for next year for spraying and needed care for my Cherry and Peach trees. I will highly recommend their services to friends.
Tara I., West Kelowna, BC
Quote for work that needed to be done arrived promptly after our consultation with arborist. The quote was presented clearly and completely. The crew arrived on time and ready to go on the appointed day. The crew was courteous and respectful. They had a system that was efficient and effective. Before leaving, the lead man went over all of the work completed with us. We were pleased and will use Bartlett again.
Greg S., Kelowna, BC
Great job by everyone. Our trees are looking awesome.
B. W., West Kelowna, BC
Just wanted to give a huge round of applause and gratitude to Kris and his crew. Not only did they come in and carefully and quickly take down three trees in our yard but they left no mess behind. That is what we expect, but here is the best part, the human connection, and welcoming attitudes they all had to include My son in their day. He is a young man with a few challenges but they allowed him to be a part of the manly removal process. He used his gift of a Bartlett water bottle and sat on a rock at a safe distance and watched all day. From the bottom of this mamas heart, thank you.
