Joe R., Summit, NJ

Everyone is knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Thank you.
Lynn O., New Providence, NJ

We could not manage without Matt Rodda and his crew. We maintain a friendly correspondence via text, email, and office staff, such as Wendy. Bartlett is worth the money. It is a big chunk of our budget, but children, if we had them, would be too. We prefer animals and plants and tend to our property and the garden we have developed with parental intensity. The health of the entire ecosystem of our small, but fertile plot, is founded upon the maintenance we receive from the Bartlett staff. And much appreciated is the time Matt Rodda spends with us during a site visit. His knowledge and genuine interest in horticulture is a pleasure to experience and learn from. Old trees are alive and well because of his attention. Plant diseases, when found, are dispatched asap. So, what more to be said or asked for?
William A., Springfield, NJ

Matt keeps our trees trimmed and healthy.
Kenneth E., New Providence, NJ

We have multiple Oak Trees on our property, with two trees with major branches overhanging the roof of our house. One of the trees, a Twin Oak has one-half of the tree precariously leaning towards the house. As a measure against possible wind damage to the house, we wanted these trees pruned to eliminate the overhanging branches and address the leaning twin oak tree. Contacting Bartlett Tree Experts resulted in a meeting at our property with their local Arborist. I was impressed with his in-depth general knowledge of trees and the reasoning behind how to properly approach the surgical branch pruning that would not adversely affect the continued growth and life of the trees. While I had a preconception of the tree work that I wanted performed, from listening and considering his recommendations based on his education and experience, we were able to agree on what the most appropriate extent of pruning to be to provide us with peace of mind, while maintaining tree health. Within one week they prepared and sent me their cost quote to perform this work which was fair and reasonable. I did find that I had to repeatedly contact them to schedule a day that I would be home to observe the work, which was done within a two-week period from the original meeting. Under Matt's supervision, the two workers, using a cherry-picker bucket truck parked in our driveway, were able to perform most of the trimming and pruning work. For limbs out of its reach one worker expertly climbed up into the upper canopy of the Black Oak Tree to surgically remove the remaining branches. Throughout this process, they took great care to lower the large cut branches to the ground avoiding any contact with our cedar shingle roof. They ground mulched and carted away all of the cut branches and used power blowers, to clean up all of the remaining debris from the terrace, walkways, and driveway. As agreed, they also installed a new stainless-steel bolt & cable connection linking the two Twin Oak trees together, thus providing additional reinforcing strength against wind driven, tree swaying, and bending. Ultimately, I believe that Bartlett Tree Experts did an excellent tree pruning job for fair price and with my persistent follow-up calls, on a calendar schedule that met my desired time frame. Therefore, I can highly recommend them for this type of work.

Matt was the key, although Bartlett’s pricing was higher overall, his tenacity and professional approach along with his knowledge and summarizations gave Bartlett the edge going forward. I have many trees that require maintenance from time to time. We are all pleased so far.
Dave S., Mountainside, NJ

Bartlett has been coming to our house for decades. We have great respect for Matt Rodda's knowledge, professionalism, and confidence. By now he is very familiar with our property, and we appreciate his suggestions. He is always prompt, reliable, and courteous. Likewise his impressive crew are always pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend Bartlett to anyone who is looking for a company to take care of their property. Whenever Bartlett works at our house we know the job will be done carefully, knowledgeably, and thoroughly. It says a lot about Bartlett as a employer that so many people remain with them for a long time. We could not be more satisfied with their work.

Matt Rodda and each of the gentlemen who have come out to fertilize, spray, and trim the trees/large bushes have been knowledgeable, very courteous, and wanted to please me, the customer. Very impressed with our first experience and now know why they came so highly recommended from the neighbors.
Susan O., Summit, NJ

Have been with Bartlett for quite awhile. At one point many years ago, I tried two other companies that folks had recommended. Awful! Bartlett might be a touch pricier, but not really when one factors in quality of work and rep's service. Amazing how un-knowledgable some of these other companies are. They're dangerous!
Ursala S., Summit, NJ

Matt's a consummate professional on whom we rely for straightforward advice. His crews are excellent and always professional and friendly. We're very pleased with Bartlett.
Rick K., Summit, NJ

Matt is not only my arborist, but also a friend that I have come to know through his exceptional people skills. Bartlett has always been there when I needed them, including the early Sunday morning when a 100' white pine fell on my house. The recent job was a big one, too. These guys not only covered my pool to keep wood chips out, but they skimmed the pool before they left! That's more than my own kids do! Superior service and attention to detail! Matt is the best!
Rex D., Summit, NJ

Matt Rodda knows my little piece of Summit, NJ and he knows his customer. Whenever I have called, he knows exactly which tree/shrub I'm discussing. He is superb at his job and highly respected in the city. Bartlett chose well. The Bartlett "public face" is professional, neat, clean, crisp, organized, and smart (just watch those men on the ropes in the trees). I'm a happy customer.
Joanne M., Summit, NJ

During the years we have known Matthew Rodda, he has been unfailingly helpful, trustworthy, prompt, and courteous. I would not hesitate to recommend him and the other crew members.
