Richard was actually taking care of business at an adjacent neighbor’s home. It appeared that he was finishing up with a customer. I literally pulled my car over when I saw the logo on his vehicle. We chatted briefly about what I needed. He was most accommodating and agreed to stop right then and came and took a look at my situation. I found him to be efficient, professional, flexible, and accommodating.

Richard was so nice to work with planning what to plant and what to remove from my landscape. Bobby and Austin did a great job planting everything and removing the Hawthorn Tree and Thorn Bush. I would definitely chose Bartlett again for any landscaping projects.

The two fellows who trimmed my tree were professional, friendly, and helpful. I liked the result of my trees.
Tom B., Camby, IN  View all testimonials for Camby, IN

Our investment of thousands of dollars for forty Norway Spruce trees was in dire jeopardy due to inexperienced landscapers. In desperation, we called Bartlett Tree Experts to see if they could help save our trees. A thorough inspection was done by Mr. Barker, all questions were answered in detail, and advice was given based on his observations. We are first time customers and are very pleased with the service provided. Our advice is to contact Bartlett instead of hiring a landscaper. We would have saved three trees and our bad backs had we called them first.

I have been pleased with all interactions with Bartlett, from start to finish. They responded promptly to my initial request for an estimate. An appointment was made and the estimate was made in a timely fashion. All personnel were courteous, helpful, and prompt. There was good communication throughout and I was informed in advance when the pruning was scheduled. The pruners arrived and worked hard throughout the day. They did a thorough job and were pleasant to interact with. They clearly knew what they were doing. Our tree is very big and overhangs the house. All the trimming was completed with no damage to our house. There were many branches trimmed and the clean up was satisfactory.
