More about Nick Scaletta

Nick has always had a passion for trees and has been involved with tree care since college. Nick earned a Bachelor's of Science in Forestry from the Pennsylvania State University in 2005. During his college years, Nick made the decision to focus on caring for individual trees and their owners rather than managing entire forests. For this very reason, Nick was attracted to Bartlett's scientific approach to tree care; but that was put on hold. After college Nick was commissioned as an officer in the United States Army and served four years. Nick served his tour primarily in Germany with one deployment to Iraq. After his service, Nick rekindled his passion for tree care by joining Bartlett as a Plant Healthcare Specialist and Climber. Nick recently moved into the position of Arborist Representative where he delivers the best possible solution for tree care and insect and disease management to his clients. Nick is an ISA Certified Arborist, Certified Tree Safety Professional and licensed Maryland Tree Expert. Nick truly enjoys helping people care for their plants and watching his clients' landscapes thrive.

I was very impressed with the very professional approach to the work of the whole crew, they were also friendly. In the past, I only hired tree experts to prune two of my trees but Nick Scaletta looked at all the trees and shrubs in the yard and then explained to me what he was planning to do. He planned to prune all the trees and two of the bushes and recommended a soil treatment to suppress insects. The trees are blooming now and they look beautiful, they also look very healthy, the pruning was perfect.

Crew was excellent, knowledgeable, and professional. Nick is always great to work with and is knowledgeable about the trees and the property.
Elaine R., Chevy Chase, MD

The crew who came to the property were polite, respectful, and efficient in their work. I was very pleased with the work they did, and they tidied up thoroughly at the end.

Dialogue is on-going with regard to further work.

Great advice and service.
Barbara B., Washington, DC

We have been working with Bartlett for many years. Nick Scaletta our second arborist. You cannot imagine how much I appreciate working with Bartlett which is a company on which I have always been able to depend, one that runs a tight, professional ship, with all involved well-trained, courteous, and prompt. I feel protected from the storms with appropriate trimming and know Bartlett will be at hand when we have problems. Not only has the company taken care of trees and plants on our property they have provided us with additional help with our historic Cherry trees in Kenwood. Nick is a lovely young man who has always done a great job, is highly informed, and takes care of what is needed quickly.
Barbara R., Chevy Chase, MD

The machine operator was very courteous and accommodating. He tried to remove as much of the stump as possible with space limitations.

Nick is so great.

Nick Scaletta was prompt, efficient, and did everything he could to answer my many questions. He went out of his way to accommodate my scheduling issues. The crew, especially the crew leader, greeted me, introduced himself, and worked with me to get all the cars and people out of the way. Could not have asked for better service. Tree looks great. Same excellent service I have always had from Bartlett.
Bonnie L., Chevy Chase, MD

Nick Is great to work with. He is knowledgeable and takes account of client’s needs and concerns, including working around a difficult neighbor. Latest tech who did work on my property was excellent.

Nick Scaletta has been wonderful, easily available, and very reassuring. I also was very impressed with his crew foreman and was pleased with his work and his attention to my concerns. I have used Bartlett in the past and had two occasions when tree pruning was botched. I was very nervous about using Bartlett again but my neighbor highly recommended Nick and I am happy that I tried you again. Both Nick and Santos were very patient and attentive. I do hope that Santos will be coming back for scheduled service this winter.
Alice B., Chevy Chase, MD

I so appreciate the updates and information that are passed along to us. Nick Scaletta got back to me immediately about the boxwood blight issue and the treatment was applied within days. I do rely on Nick’s advice and he is always proactive and responsive.
Karen S., Washington, DC

Nick Scaletta was terrific. He took the time to explain everything. Responded very quickly to emails with my several questions. And was very nice. I was really impressed, In addition, the crew seemed very knowledgeable and efficient in working on the job. They seem to have done a great job trimming our large Pin Oak, which had a lot of dead branches, and unlike the previous company, they removed all the debris perfectly. All around, an excellent experience. I would recommend Bartlett to anyone needing tree service. Your responsiveness, from our first call onward, was really good. And your arborist clearly knew a lot more about our trees and their issues than any of the other folks I contacted.
Paula S., Chevy Chase, MD

Nick Scaletta is professional, informative, great people skills, and always on time.
Lynn D., Chevy Chase, MD

My experience with Nick was great, and the crew was absolutely fantastic.
Amy K., Chevy Chase, MD

Nick is the best, knowledgeable, friendly, thorough, and conscientious. Always follows through. Tree workers were polite and competent.
Larry O., Washington, DC

Nick has always been very friendly and responsive in terms of planning the work. Tyler and the other crew members are friendly and also hard working. They are willing to help me with shrub planting this summer even though I know they are not landscapers. I have had such a hard time finding someone to plant shrubs without a landscaping contract, so I decided I would rather have Bartlett do it since I trust them and have a relationship with them already. I would definitely recommend Bartlett, although I think everyone in Chevy Chase already uses them.
Jennifer S., Chevy Chase, MD

I can always rely on my arborist, Nick, and value his expertise and recommendations. Santos and his crew have been to our home several times and I can also rely on them as well to be courteous, professional, and attentive to my needs and issues. Tyler is the new member and always appreciate it when he calls to let me know that he is coming by. He also takes his time and is thorough at his job. My experience with Bartlett since Nick has come on board has only been positive.
Beth L., Washington, DC

Very nice and friendly staff, accommodated my schedule, worked efficiently, and answered all questions. Very pleased with my first experience with Bartlett.
Maria M., Washington, DC

Nick was always prompt, informative, and friendly. It was a pleasure to work with him.
Janice W., Washington, DC

I enjoy working with everyone at Bartlett. Nick is always on time for his consultations and provides advice and recommendations as needed. The crew that came to prune and clean up at my home were excellent, pointing out problems as seen. They projected such a positive attitude and enjoyment for what they were doing. I had worked with the lead guy, Jose, before when he pruned my Crape Myrtle.
Mary L., Washington, DC

Nick has always been helpful and available to answer questions and make recommendations on a variety of our trees.
Barbara B., Washington, DC

Nick Scaletta keeps better track of our trees than we do, thankfully. The crews that trim and fertilize are polite, friendly, and speak English well.
Larry O., Washington, DC

Nick Scaletta was very knowledgeable and responsive. It took no time to schedule the work and the crew members who pruned our myrtles were very polite and did a great job.

Bartlett is prompt, pleasant, and thorough and I was an "add-on" customer that day. I will never use anyone but Nick and his crew again.

Anne B., Washington, DC

Nick Scaletta is responsive, available, and always on the job to help us.
Fred P., Chevy Chase, MD

Mr. Scaletta has saved our holly trees, he was very flexible in scheduling the trimming of our oak during our half-year of thinking about it. The three man crew doing the trimming had Mr. Scaletta's instructions on what to trim and carried them out. They worked very efficiently and I was amazed at how much dead wood they found. The two working in the tree were incredible the way they worked at those heights. The man on the ground was kept busy gathering branches as they fell. Our yard was cleaner when they left than when they arrived. The price was competitive with another bid.
Larry O., Washington, DC

Nick is a pleasure to work with and the crew who did the pruning were polite accommodating, and very neat. The holly looks even better than I imagined it could and my yard was left immaculate. The neighbors have been commenting on the great job on.
Carin R., Washington, DC

Nick Scaletta clearly described the work that should be done and when. Earlier, his solution to the scale infestation saved our bushes. The work then, and on November 5, was carried out thoroughly and efficiently.
Ralph & Sandra M., Chevy Chase, MD

We thought Nick was terrific and appreciated his honesty about the outlook for our ailing tree. Would happily recommend him!
Renne B., Washington, DC

I work with Nick Scaletta on several properties I manage in Washington D.C. He and the crews never fail to be professional, courteous, transparent, flexible, and do their best to make sure every job is done right.
Mike A., Washington, D.C.

Nick Scaletta is a real pro and a pleasure to work with.
Charles K., Chevy Chase, MD

Nick was a pleasure to deal with he responded rapidly to all of my questions. He efficiently prepared an estimate for the project. The crew was incredible, efficient, polite, and hardworking. I was impressed that they all used the proper safety protection. I will not hesitate to use Bartlett for all my future needs.
Anne K., Chevy Chase, MD

Absolutely top notch in every respect. Really artistic and careful about the shapes and creating beautiful skeletons in the branches. Careful and safe even though it is pretty "hairy" doing what they do. Nick wrote a very thorough contract and was extremely knowledgeable from the get-go.
Jill L., Washington, D.C.

Both Nick and Harry are very professional, and communicate well about the issues we are working on; they are a pleasure to work with.
Peter D., Chevy Chase, MD

I have absolute confidence in Bartlett's assessment and suggested maintenance. Glad to know the Bradford's in such healthy shape. The kids will love playing outback under its shady goodness for years to come.
Matt A., Washington, D.C.

We have used Bartlett's services since we moved to Bethesda in the early 1980s. We really appreciate the knowledge, care, and courtesy Bartlett staff bring to the job. And, it's especially nice to know that in case of a serious event like a fallen tree, we are confident about who to call. Thank you to Frido Van Kesteren, Tim Zastrow, and now to Nick Scaletta.
Anna A., Chevy Chase, MD

Nick was great  very flexible in scheduling and rescheduling due to multiple weather delays; and very diplomatic and patient in dealing with my difficult neighbor whose agreement we needed to do work on her tree.
Christopher S., Washington, D.C.

I could not say enough good things about our arborist, Nick Scaletta. He was extremely professional, honest and helpful. I was very impressed by the quality of service. Thank you, Nick.
Brett D., Washington, D.C.

Excellent work beginning with Nick Scaletta and the crew who took care of the trees. Nick was especially considerate and helpful dealing with the neighbor and her tree overhanging our property.
Kathy S., Washington, D.C.

Nick gave us great options for how to prune our fruit trees and restore their health. He was really responsive, knowledgeable, and courteous. The crew that pruned our trees was careful and did a great job.
