More about Michael Van Dyken
Michael’s interest in tree care was originally sparked as a youngster while watching a Bartlett Tree Experts crew work on his parents’ trees in Grand Rapids Michigan. Shortly after graduating from Calvin University with a degree in Biology, Michael started his own career with Bartlett. Prior to becoming a Bartlett Arborist Representative, Michael held the roles of Plant Health Care Specialist, Climbing Arborist, Crew Leader, and Regional Inventory Arborist. Gaining experience in a variety of these roles has helped Michael fully understand all facets of arboriculture.
He enjoys helping clients in Minneapolis, St Louis Park, and Golden Valley diagnose and treat their ailing trees and shrubs, as well as providing comprehensive pruning and treatment plans to maintain their landscapes.
Michael, his wife Sarah, and two sons Silas and Luke live in Savage. They enjoy spending time with friends and family. Weekends, they relax and volunteer at their church. They also like to check out local breweries and food trucks with friends.
What Our Customers Are Saying About Michael Van Dyken
I could not have been more pleased. Communication with Michael and his crew was knowledge, the professionalism of the crew just great.
Heidi E., Minneapolis, MN
Michael VanDyken was prompt in his reply to all inquiries we had. The crew arrived at the front side of the arrival window we were given, which was fantastic. The two member crew, were polite and made eye contact with us during conversation. The crew was extremely careful with our property and took several precautions to prevent damage. They wrapped our gate. Impressive. We are very pleased with the result and the care shown to our property and our neighbors property as well. The last tree company we hired caused damage in our yard and although they came back to survey the damage, they did not follow up to replace or compensate as promised. Our experience with Bartlett was completely different and we are very appreciative. Our neighbor is happy too. Thank you.
John and Karen S., Minneapolis, MN
Very satisfied with Bartlett. Have used your service for many years and have recommended you to many neighbors and friends. Michael Van Dyken Is really great to work with.
John and Kathleen C., Bloomington, MN
Mike has been so patient with my questions. I am trying to learn more about the process of treating Ash trees rather than just setting up appointments and paying bills. I always appreciate the opportunity to learn as a homeowner. Bartlett was recommended to me by a neighbor who had only good things to say, and I have had an equally good experience. Thank you for all the help.
Jane S., Bloomington, MN
Michael was terrific in making recommendations that were in the interest of the health of the tree and the aesthetics of the site. He was also generous with his time when I wanted to talk through a modification in our original plan. Very open and timely in his responses. A terrific success.
Martha and John C., Minneapolis, MN
Mike Van Dyken is fabulous. He is very well educated in his field and is such a nice person to work with. The crew has worked beyond expectation. The tree pruning and shrubs have never looked finer. I am so pleased with the work done so far. I used to use another tree service, they were not at all reliable and did not perform the work as expected. So, I am grateful to have found Bartlett.
Lauren B., Eagan, MN
Michael has been great, he arrived shortly after the crew, provided clear instructions, and ensured that I understood what and how everything would work that day. The crew was conscientious and focused. They put plywood over my bay windows to avoid any damage and placed safety cones everywhere to alert people. They were also acutely sensitive to anyone approaching the house, shutting off chainsaws and stopping the cherry-picker. They could not have been more courteous when speaking with me and they were very thorough in removing debris. I have had Bartlett perform major tree work three times in the last year or so and each time I have been extremely satisfied with the work. These are people who genuinely love trees and it shows.
John R., Minnenapolis, MN
We enjoy working with you Mike. We appreciate your explanations for the work that needs to be done for our trees.
Barb E., Minnenapolis, MN
