What Our Customers Are Saying About Luke Veenstra
Representative was efficient, friendly, and we were surprised at the price, which we thought was very reasonable for the amount of work that was to be done. We did not have to wait very long after the quote to have the work begin. The crew members were polite,,very hard workers and willing to make some changes when asked. This is the second time we have hired Bartlett to cut our trees and I am sure we will probably have them back in another couple of years. We are very satisfied with using this company and would recommend them to others.

Everyone we met and spoke to were friendly, courteous, and professional. I felt like we were in good hands every step of the way.
The services provided were done in just a few hours and the crew left the area tidier than it was before they arrived. They did everything they could to prevent further damage to our shed and house they were removing a tree that fell and communicated with us throughout the process. We were really impressed with the service and would absolutely use Bartlett again. They were friendly and professional every step of the way from scheduling a free assessment to the crew coming in to do the job. They took pains to prevent further damage to our property from a fallen tree issue. Cleaned up the area afterward, did the job surprisingly fast, and followed all Covid precautions. We felt like we were in good hands every step of the way and would use their services again in a heartbeat.

It was a pleasure meeting and working with Kris. We booked an appointment with Bartlett Tree Experts, because we wanted advice on the health of our trees and whether any trees were at risk of falling. Kris was the perfect person to help us with this. He is very knowledgeable and professional which made us feel confident with his recommendations. The young men that arrived at our house to do the work were very professional and efficient. They did an amazing job of cleaning up and even did a little extra. We had a small pile of thick branches sitting against the fence in our yard. The branches were too thick for us to put into the green bin, so we have been trying to figure out what to do with them. On his own initiative, Luke asked me if I would like them to throw them into the shredder while they were here. It was such a thoughtful thing to do and indicative of his attention to detail. For the big tree in the backyard, they took off all the lower branches and then cut the whole thing down. It landed perfectly in our backyard. It was quite interesting to watch. Removing these trees is not something that my husband could have managed on his own, especially in such a timely manner and without resulting in an incredibly sore back for weeks afterwards. It was a pleasure and stress free having professionals take care of it for us. When we need more work done, we will definitely be contacting you again. Thank you.
