What Our Customers Are Saying About Paul G. Foster
Bartlett Tree came through for the necessary work we needed done on our property, especially after the horrific storm last Friday, which we know has kept your crews busy.
Raul, Cristóbal and John were exceptional in accomplishing the not so easy tasks. Going up in trees that are close to 100' high is hard work anytime, little alone when the temperature is 90 degrees. That said, they planned, organized, and efficiently did the job, with safety always at the forefront, which everyone appreciates. And they finished earlier than expected, a real bonus.
My gratitude to you and those guys. For sure, Bartlett is the go to company when it comes to our trees, whether it be maintenance, fertilization, or advice.
Bob, Annapolis, MD
Wanted to let you know that Billy, Eduardo, and Joe did a wonderful job taking down all our dead limbs and trunks around our house, along our driveway and our fish pond. It was amazing watching them with the bucket truck and tree climbing to cut and drop branch after branch some over 20" diameter. With all the ice and snow and melting slop, they worked hard and long and did a great job of cleaning up all the twigs and debris.
Had a front row seat watching them do their magic. Looking forward to our spring treatments for Evergreen Bagworm and Hemlock Woolly Adelgid. Working hard to keep our trees and gardens look good and healthy.
Art and Evelyn L., Crownsville, MD
Paul Foster gave us great advice and prompt, helpful advice. Clear and thoughtful. The crew was courteous, understanding and very professional. We really appreciate all that they did to help make our property so improved. Thank you. Highly recommend their services.
Carlene W., Annapolis, MD
Paul Foster is the best. We feel so lucky to have him watching over our trees.
Jan S., Annapolis, MD
Paul Foster and the crew who were assigned to my job were very professional in their explanations, efficient in carrying out the task, thoughtful and caring about every part of the project. Small as this job was, they treated it with the importance I felt about my garden, showed respect for the space, adjusted to my preferences, had good ideas. They shared a bit of themselves, too laughter and stories as they worked efficiently and expertly.
Genevieve M., Annapolis, MD
Paul was very professional and easy to work with. He is knowledgeable and provided me with recommendations and options for managing the trees in my yard. The crew who did the work on my property was friendly, professional, and did a great job. They arrived when scheduled and left my property neat and cleaned up after they completed their work. All three team members were a pleasure to work with. I will continue to use Bartlett when I need arborist services in the future and am happy to recommend Bartlett to friends and family. I had trees removed and several which needed trimming. The yard looks great after Bartlett completed their work. Thank you for a job well done!

All crew members from Paul, to the fertilizer
guy, to the crew that removed the dead limb, and cleaned up the tree were professional and great to work with.
Donald T., Annapolis, MD
Very impressed with Paul Foster and the crew chief and crew members as well. Courteous, friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable.
Nancy L., Annapolis, MD
The entire experience with the Bartlett group was great. I was surprised at the quick response for an estimate and even more surprised that the work could be scheduled within one week. Raul and his crew were polite and conscientious regarding the safety measures. Raul explained to me why certain pruning cuts were being made which added to my comfort of the work being done. I will definitely contact Bartlett in the spring for more tree work.
Bernadette G., Annapolis, MD
You recently trimmed my Holly Tree in the front of my house and an Apple Tree in the back and I am thrilled. The Holly Tree looks like it was sculpted it is so perfect and the Apple Tree which I planted 50 yrs. ago myself you were able to save. Thank you so much for making me happy. Perfect Job.
Sandra M., Annapolis, MD
Wonderful crew. Hard working, friendly, and answered all our questions.
Richard L., Annapolis, MD
Paul and the crewmembers are kind, respectful, and know their craft very well. We had a large limb partially break from a tree. I left a message after business hours and received a call back the next morning. Paul, the arborist, came out for an estimate that day. The next day the crew was there to remove the limb. They did a great job with the removal being careful to keep the garden plantings and the fence from harm. The cleanup was so good that you could not even tell they were there.
Karen B., Annapolis, MD
Paul Foster has been my arborist for over twenty years. He is very knowledgeable. Always courteous, and gives sound and reasonable recommendations for taking care of my trees and shrubs. I have referred Paul to several neighbors and will continue to do so. Customer service and caring for my trees and shrubs is excellent. Paul Foster always gives me a good plan for my fairly large property. I depend on Bartlett Trees and their experts.
Elizabeth B., Gibson Island, MD
Always excellent and very service oriented with helpful information.
Robert B., Annapolis, MD
Paul has been a huge help dealing with a difficult Pear tree. We are lucky to have him.
Regina M., Annapolis, MD
I have always been very impressed with Bartlett. It is a little more expensive but you get what you pay for. Paul Foster is the best.
James G., Annapolis, MD
Your team did a fantastic job. We are very pleased with everything they did. John, Raul, and Christobal worked especially well together and completed everything that we discussed. I am grateful that they chipped the large branch that fell near the gate. We were also impressed how they used quiet electric trimmers, and only ran the chipper when most of the branches were down. Please pass on our sincere thanks for all the hard work they did today.
Lee and Judy J., Annapolis, MD
Highly impressed with Paul's professional expertise. The work crew was efficient and hard working while keeping me informed about what they were doing. They offered some practical maintenance advice. Yet, they carefully did not venture into giving advise best provided by an arborist. The trees look much better. I look forward to having the trees treated for fungus.
Elizabeth F., Annapolis, MD
Everyone was great.
Regina M., Annapolis, MD
Thank you for staying on top of our tree issues. The team did a fabulous job and the tree looks great.

Robert B., Annapolis, MD
I feel like the Bartlett arborists and I are part of the same team, keeping my bushes and trees healthy. I really value Paul Foster as my arborist. He listens to what I want in the yard, and has excellent suggestions. I was very impressed with how smoothly the last round of pruning went. Paul knew exactly what I wanted, conveyed that to his crew, and they did a wonderful job, especially the cleanup. My yard looks amazing. I am very glad to be a Bartlett customer and always recommend your services to others.
Lynda W., Severna Park, MD
Working with Bartlett is a pleasure. They are professional and knowledgeable. I so appreciate the advice from the arborist to keep our large "legacy" Oak trees living and thriving.
Paul S., Severna Park, MD
Paul Is excellent. Always reaching out to make sure his customers are satisfied. His knowledge and professionalism are truly appreciated.
Robert B. , Annapolis, MD
Really appreciate the focus on saving trees. Look forward to working with you again in September to fertilize our trees as discussed.
Adam K., Annapolis, MD
All of the people I deal with at Bartlett are profession and courteous.
Marsha W., Severna Park, MD
We are so appreciative of you getting the crew out here so quickly to take care of the downed tree. They were also able to remove all but one broken tree in the neighbor's yard which was great too. We will keep our fingers crossed in the "big blow" tonight with the tree that is still standing and look forward to the team coming back out for that one. You and the team are absolutely awesome. If you ever need us to be a recommendation for you or the company you can always count on us.
Robin G., Annapolis, MD
Bartlett employees are top of the line, they are professional and friendly. They walk you through everything they do and listen to feed back. They are thorough and efficient. When they leave, all that is left are beautiful results. Paul Foster has been my arborist for many years and I love working with him. He knows exactly what I want done and how I want it done. Over the years I have tried other companies and no one performs to the level of Bartlett. I would recommend them to anyone.
Diane E., Annapolis, MD
Paul Foster is the consummate professional! Very knowledgeable and always provides prompt response to questions and concerns. Readily available, he tends to any problems immediately! Can't say enough about him.
Leslie S., Annapolis, MD
Paul is a gem: Professional, friendly, obviously genuinely loves what he is doing and knows what he is doing. We trust him 100% and love that he 'gets' how much we love our trees. Knowing we can always call Paul and he responds immediately it wonderful! And the crew members were totally amazing&amazing watching them work! They were prompt, considerate, obviously knowledgeable. It was so much fun watching the teamwork and skills they exhibited! They left the yard neater/cleaner than they found it. They are amazing! We recommend Paul and Bartlett whenever we have the opportunity&thank you!
