What Our Customers Are Saying About Michael McGowan
Mike is very knowledgeable, honest, and a trained and licensed arborist. He does not try to talk you into anything that is not necessary. You might pay a little more than other tree companies, however, you are paying for the service and for the arborist certification and expert advice. Mike would not steer you wrong and your trees will be in good hands. I recommend Mike and Bartlett for your trees and property.

We are not ones to go overboard with comments, and often avoid surveys, but we were so very impressed with Mike and his crew this time that we wanted to respond. Mike, as always, is not only extremely professional, but knowledgeable, thorough, and trustworthy. He's great! We have come to rely on his advice and always go with his recommendations. Additionally, the crew of three men who carried out the work were simply amazing. They not only clearly knew what they were doing, but did the work with great courtesy and care. Because of Mike, and his crew, we intend to stay with Bartlett as long as we have trees and we thank you for providing such a great service.

Toby C., Scarsdale, NY
The receptionist was very helpful when I first called. I also appreciated that the first inspection of the ailing tree was not charged. It was helpful to have the arborist look at all the trees in the yard and make recommendations. The contract was quite detailed and, when approved, the work was done efficiently and expertly. I have only praise for the employees and the operation of Bartlett.

My arborist Mike McGowan is very responsive, comes over to the property promptly whenever I see a problem with my trees or shrubs, and devises an appropriate plan to treat issues as they arise. Mike and Celso, who treats my property, are pleasant, accommodating, and knowledgeable. If I feel something was not done properly, they respond quickly and redo or fix the problem. I would highly recommend them to others. Eric T., Scarsdale, NY
Mike McGowan is amazing to work with. Really appreciate his knowledge and excellent service. Daniel P., Scarsdale, NY
Have been a customer for many years and have always been satisfied. Mike McGowan has always been right there for both big and small jobs. Thank! Jean B., Scarsdale, NY
My arborist Mike McGowan is very responsive and helpful whenever we have a problem or concern. He and Celso, the person who does our treatments, are very professional. The pruning crew (we do not know them and were not at home to guide them) initially did not complete the job we needed done, and Mike saw to it that it was taken care of promptly and properly the following week. I would and do recommend Bartlett to others. Eric T., Scarsdale, NY
Mike McGowan is a knowledgeable man who always teaches me something about my plants and trees when we talk. But beyond that he is a kind person, a human being, and he cares about his work. It is so often that you find nowadays that people are rushed, they don't take the time to talk to customers in their business and there is very little to praise "out there". Also, the crew who worked on my property were so nice, easy to talk to, generous, offering to cut up a few stray branches that I was going to cut for firewood myself. Outstanding staff, all around.
