Both Mark and his crew have worked on my property since it’s inception, perhaps with different names, but the level of service has been exceptional. I plan to continue employing them, and you, even when confronted with neighbors who look at me because of your pricing, one does get what one pays for.

Rich Croft is a pleasure to work with. He always takes the time to explain what work he feels is necessary and why, makes sure I know when work is scheduled, and also follows up when work is completed to make sure I am satisfied. He has also stopped by on different occasions just to inspect the completed job himself. I would recommend Bartlett to anyone having issues with their trees or who just wants to make sure they maintain their health.

Found Rich Croft to be extremely knowledgeable and excellent at explaining what needed to be done and why. The crew that performed the tree trimming service was also excellent. They did a great job and cleaned up everything when they were done. Everyone was professional, courteous, and on time and they knew what they were doing. Their equipment and trucks all looked to be well maintained. My Japanese Maple looks great now that they have trimmed it properly and I will have them come back in the future to keep it looking great and healthy.
