What Our Customers Are Saying About Rick Towe
Rick is the best. He explains the condition of our trees and gives us options of what we can do. I really trust his guidance. The crew that came out were friendly, respectful, and professionals.
Elizabeth S., Cincinnati, OH
I worked with Jordan and most closely with Rick. Both were exceptional. They were prompt in their feedback, professional, and courteous. I was working on a short time frame for the quote and they made it work with my schedule. I live overseas so they worked with my tenant to coordinate the job site on the day of. They made sure to share photos of the finished work before I made the final payment. The experience ran smoothly. I do not work with many trades or vendors when managing our home that operate at this high of a level. I would recommend them to anyone.
Jenny E., Cincinnati, OH
We had a really good experience from the quote through job completion. Everyone was professional and took extra care to do a significant amount of work while protecting our newly installed fence. When we need to finish the tree and shrub removal in our front yard, we will definitely use Bartlett again.

Could not be happier with the high level of service, professionalism, and quality of work this team delivered. Would definitely use Bartlett again and highly recommend them to friends.
Tom S., Cincinnati, OH
Everyone with whom I had contact were courteous, professional, and stayed on task. I was impressed with the crew who showed up and how they rapidly positioned their vehicles and equipment and started their work. They seemed to handle everything in a safe and concise manner. Only my missing trees and some wood chips were any indication they had been there. Very happy with the whole experience including price.
Brenda B., Cincinnati, OH
Thrilled with the service we received. It turned out way better than I could have imagined. I will highly recommend Bartlett to friends and family in the future.
Sarah R., Cincinnati, OH
Have used multiple tree service company's over the years and by far Bartlett Tree Experts are the best. I will always use Bartlett in the future and will recommend them to anyone in the future.
Brian S, Cincinnati, OH
The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They do very good work and always leave the space looking cleaner than when they arrived.
Ryan S., Cincinnati, OH
Very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I was so pleased I had this done before there was an ice storm. I did not loose limbs like the rest of the neighborhood. Thank you for the great service.
Jane H., Fort Thomas, KY
I was impressed with the skill I saw in removing the one hundred fool tall Beech tree. The crew demonstrated their understanding of safety procedures. The crane operator was extremely skilled in working around a relatively tight area. The equipment has been properly maintained which is a sign of professionalism. The crew took the time to explain what they were doing and the timing. The arborist took the time to really examine my tree and although still alive and to an uninformed person, still looked healthy, was on a short time before it became high risk due to several lightning strikes. He was not trying to sell me, I will use your service again and recommend you to others.
Keith B., Cincinnati, OH
The crew were very personable and skilled at their jobs. I could not have asked for a better experience. Great company because of great people.
Dan C., Cincinnati, OH
I was very pleased with the work done by your company. They did a great job, they were very nice, and cleaned up the yard perfectly. I would recommend your company any time.
Judy D., Cincinnati, OH
Ricky is very professional and reassuring.
Lisa M., Cincinnati, OH
The technician that came to the property was a nice young man, new to your company. He is a Purdue Grad and seem to take his time to do the job properly. I hope my trees are not damaged by the Asian Borers.
Ken H., Cincinnati, OH
Thanks for the service recently provided. The removal of the dead tree in my back yard was not so notable however, the location was tricky. The crew had to use the neighbors driveway which was long and narrow with very little room for error. There was a rickety old wooden fence which had to be navigated and the truck had about six inches on both sides to get trough. Great job for the leader who drove the cherry picker through that gauntlet.
Russell B., Cincinnati, OH
I have never encountered such an easy process from beginning to end as I have with Bartlett. They were friendly, professional, and concerned about my problem. I had a quote in less than thirty minutes from my initial call and my tree problem was taken care of in less than twenty-four hours. The guys who took down my tree were awesome and worked tirelessly without complaint removing a tree in between two fences with little space to maneuver. They did a great job and left the place spic and span. I am extremely pleased with their service and will not hesitate to call them in the future for all my tree needs.
Nancy T., Cincinnati, OH
Rick Towe is very professional and a pleasure to work with.
Dean D., Cincinnati, OH
Bartlett was easy to work with, gave a fair price, and did great work. We had a tricky tree to get at, and Mark and Rego were very respectful of our property and our neighbors with amazingly no damage. They took the extra time and care to do the job correctly. Thank you Rick.
Jen R., Fort Thomas, KY
Great experience!.The team was great to work with, efficient, and very friendly. I have recommended the company to several others in my neighborhood and will definitely use them again.
Stephanie P., Cincinnati, OH
Your two man team was great. They did an awesome job on dropping the trees and cleaning up the brush. Both were very professional and respectful, could not ask for a better experience. Just waiting on the stump grinders to come out so we can finish the job. Even though Bartlett was having issues with equipment being down and juggling that between projects, your team had not let that impact the customer any. I commend the Bartlett team for that.
Adam H., Cincinnati, Oh
The trimmers were very nice and did an excellent job.
Jerry D., Cincinnati, OH
Just a note to thank the receptionist, Rick Towe, and the two crew members for giving me peace of mind concerning the pine tree trimming work I had done. I will absolutely use and recommend your services again.
Sandy L., Cincinnati, OH
Rick was knowledgeable about the fungus and offered an approach to save the tree.
