What Our Customers Are Saying About Michael Sanborn
This was my first experience seeing root exposure using high pressure air. The process is terrific at removing soil around the tree's root flare. I can not think of anything that would improve how this work was done. Vic was very courteous and professional. I learned a lot. Trees are important to me, so Bartlett will be my go-to specialists in the future. I am glad I decided to have this work done and will probably ask for more services in the future.
Malcolm P., Spokane, WA

Great people. Everyone has been terrific from Mike, to the crews, Shaylen, Tim, Harley, and the guy that comes around to spray. I forget his name but he was great too. And Philicia Green from the office is wonderful. Everyone is friendly, efficient, and seem very concerned for our best interest. Bartlett is a great company to work with and I would recommend them to everyone looking for meaningful tree care.

Michael was patient with my comings and goings over the tree removal. He was personable both in person and on the phone. The crew did an excellent job of saving a small and misplaced tree that had sentimental value. It was directly in front of the tree that needed to be removed and they took extra time to protect it. A great experience overall.

Mike Sanborn arrived when scheduled, listened thoughtfully to our comments and questions, and did not laugh when we did not know what kind of tree was in the front yard. He offered a good plan for the three trees at a price we could afford. Crew members did the actual tree pruning the following week. Both of them responded to a few additional questions and comments we had about how to make our trees the best they can be. We will contact Bartlett Tree Experts in the future.
