He is knowledgeable in all areas, and takes the time to explain and answer my question. I am confident that Bartlett will always provide the best service which relieves me of the burden.
Patricia C., Branford, CT
Rich Sala has done work on our property several times over the years. He is professional, gives us a fair price, the final price is the same as the estimate, and he checks up to make sure the work has been done to our complete satisfaction. I like that he is very accommodating regarding the type of project we want to do ranging from full cut down with branch chipping and wood removal, to cut to four foot lengths and leave everything on property for customer to finish, where the Bartlett crew does all the hard and potentially dangerous work, and then we save money by doing the clean up work ourselves. The crew members are skilled, courteous, and professional. I highly recommend Rich Sala and his crew.
Dan W., North Branford, CT
Rich Sala is very knowledgeable, thoughtful, kind, and available. All the other members who have worked on our property are efficient, leave the property in good condition, and seem happy to answer our questions. I have been very happy with Bartlett over many years.
Karel K., New Haven, CT
Each year Rich Sala makes a home visit to discuss our service needs. My husband and I are appreciative of his time and professional expertise. We have been Bartlett customers since purchasing our home almost thirty years ago. Rich has been our Arborist Representative during the entire time and our property would not be as well-maintained without his oversight. It has been a pleasure working with him and we look forward to continuing our partnership.
