What Our Customers Are Saying About Scott Carothers
Very knowledgeable and friendly. Clean up was above and beyond my expectations. As there was many leaves down on the ground that they cleaned up in addition to their tree debris.
Mark K., Windsor, CA
Kim K., Sebastopol, CA
Thank you, Ray. Thank you, Scott.
Michael and Anne V., Rohnert Park, CA
We felt secure in the recommended plan Scott Carothers provided when he visited our property. We recently purchased our home and want to maintain the health of our Japanese Maples, Dogwoods, and flowering Cherry trees. We are looking forward to the nutritional maintenance plan for the Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Camellias as well as our trees. I have told neighbors about your excellent service, soil testing and maintenance plan.

Lois G., Glen Ellen, CA
Scott and his crew of workers were wonderful. Scott is incredibly knowledgeable and spent a lot of time considering what we needed. The crew worked around our schedule, being conscientious of noise while I work from home.
Ali M., Sonoma, CA
Scott Carothers was a pleasure to work with.
Arnold M., Glen Ellen, CA
Bartlett staff are very nice to work with. A few years ago my seven Pear trees around had a terrible case of fire blight. Scott and his crew treated them and now spray them annually. I am happy to say they are now looking very good.
Heather S., Healdsburg, CA
Scott Carothers has kept an eye on our trees for the last two properties we have owned. He has an eye for what is needed to keep all kinds of trees healthy, and what trees to plant in areas where we need one. When we need the advice of an arborist, he is at the top of our list.
Francine R., Santa Rosa, CA
Scott was able to come quickly after the tree branch fell on the top of our house. He gave me a quote and the branch was removed the next day.
Michael L., Sonoma, CA
Very creative trimming of shrubs and fruit trees.
Terry D., Petaluma, CA
Scott was recommended to us by someone we have a long friendship. We were so impressed with his professionalism and personal commitment to us and our project. One of the things he said was that he would treat this project as if it was at his own home. He expressed a clear understanding of our needs keeping the liability issue in the forefront while also maintaining a thoughtful perspective with regard to the aesthetics and health of the trees. We were also quite impressed with the management of his crew with regard to safety and communication. The overall experience was a pleasure with Scott and all of the workers.
Laura B., Santa Rosa, CA
We have had responsive service from Scott Carothers over a period of several months. Scott determined that additional follow-up testing of our Olive tree could provide additional diagnostic information and he performed additional tests. The additional tests identified the problem to be addressed. We depend on Bartlett to guide us in identifying issues that arise with the health of our trees. Bartlett is our source for the maintenance of our trees.
Ellen M., Cotati, CA
I really enjoyed working with Scott. I especially appreciated his taking the time at our initial meeting to walk through out property and advising me on what needed to be done to take care of all the diverse trees we have. The crew itself was very efficient and friendly as well. They also had a good idea for aesthetics when attending to our trees and bushes. I am looking forward to a long term relationship with Bartlett in the future care of our trees.
Robert B., Sebastopol, CA
My kitty, Porter, was stuck at the top of an eighty foot Redwood tree for the past two days. The guys at Bartlett just happened to be at a neighbors and were more than willing to help attempt a rescue. One of the crew members climbed all the way to the top with a carrier backpack on and a can of wet food in hand. Unfortunately, being so on edge, Porter jumped from the top of the tree, hitting a few branches on his way down and then bolted. Scott called me afterwards to check in and give me advice on potential injuries he had seen and it was so nice to see how caring he was. Porter ended up coming home shortly after and miraculously sustained no injuries. I am so grateful to this amazing crew. I am not sure what would have happened if we waited any longer. I felt they really did care about getting him home safely. Thank you for helping bring my kitty home. If anyone needs any tree trimming, I highly recommend Bartlett Tree Experts.
Mila O., Petaluma, CA
Scott Carothers does a great job.
Deidre H., Petaluma, CA
Scott Caruthers continues to do an outstanding job for Bartlett Tree Service. He is our go to person when we need tree trimming or fertilizer needs. Your yard crews have always been efficient and professional, this time is no different.
Dennis S. , Santa Rosa, CA
Scott was great. Took time to walk our property, hear our concerns , make suggestions, and bid the job professionally. Best tree work we have ever had done.
Vaughn M., Kenwood, CA

I am very pleased with the work at Sunny Slope Vineyard. My contact with Scott was great, his help and prompt response was very appreciated. He kept in contact and informed me of progress, I will call him for any tree work I need.
Etta A., Glen Ellen, CA
All of my experiences with Bartlett have been excellent.
David G., Santa Rosa, CA
It was a pleasure to work with Scott and a company which did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it, and have the crew do it in a very professional manner.
Mel F., Petaluma, CA
Scott Carothers is very knowledgable, professional, and helpful.
Joann F., Santa Rosa, CA
Scott Carothers was quite thorough with how the trees needed to be trimmed, although I was a bit lost on the professional wording he used. Ramon cleared that up when he came to do the job. What a change from the company I had do work on the same tree two years earlier. The guys really took pride in doing a good job, and going that extra mile. I will definitely call them again to do work on the other trees on the property.
Mark B., Sonoma County, CA
Scott was good to work with and had the crew complete the job fast and on time.
Greg F., Petaluma, CA
Everything was great, very professional and hard-working. Easy to talk and to ask questions.
Darcy M., Monte Rio, CA
I found the work that was completed on my property was great. I have no complaints.
Shelia H., Santa Rosa, CA
The Sonoma County Master Gardeners really enjoyed the pruning demonstration. We all learned a lot and appreciate your talk (at the Luther Burbank Center, Santa Rosa October 21, 2015).
Kate H., Santa Rosa, CA
Scott and his crew have always been very helpful and have always made it a point to get here as soon as possible when I have a problem.
Lanna C., Santa Rosa, CA
Scott Carothers is my Bartlett Arborist. He has worked with us for about three years and we are happy to have him "on the team" for us. He is knowledgeable, conscientious, and courteous, and I hope he can save our mimosa tree.
Mel D., Santa Rosa, CA
Good job, Scott! As far as I can see, I'm happy with the finished work.
Mike F., Petaluma, CA
Scott Carothers has been very helpful. We had several trees that seemed ill and he was able to diagnose and recommend treatment-- which his crew did.
Francine R., Santa Rosa, CA
Scott is great and the crews are always pleasant and courteous. I never worry about leaving them on our property alone!
Elsie R., Petaluma, CA
This is our second time using Bartlett. Everyone was very professional and pleasant to work with. My trees look great!
Bruce and Diane P., Santa Rosa, CA
Scott is very knowledgeable and very helpful along with the person who does the spraying. I would always always recommend them.
Lanna C., Santa Rosa, CA
Scott Carothers and his team are superlative. We had interviewed two other companies before selecting Bartlett. Scott's expertise and willingness to work within our budget were exemplary. We look forward to working with him again.
Tricia C., Healdsburg, CA
Scott made more than one trip to our property and offered recommendations before we ever hired him for a job. Once we decided to follow his recommendations, everything went as agreed. We gained confidence with each step, so a good relationship was established.
Daniel B., Petaluma, CA
William and Carol E., Santa Rosa, CA
Scott Carothers is our Bartlett Representative. We've worked with him for two seasons and expect to continue working with him in the future. He is professional and responsive and we appreciate his service.
Mel D., Santa Rosa, CA
Scott Carothers has been very helpful in explaining conditions of our trees and what needs to be done to keep them healthy. We're in sudden-oak-death area, and this has been a concern.
F. Rivers, Santa Rosa, CA
Scott did a great job coordinating the work and came by for a post-work inspection and called the crew back for a few minor things that were overlooked (that I would not have probably noticed anyway). Very pleased overall.
Bill, Petaluma, CA
Scott was very knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous. His crew were also courteous and efficient. I was very pleased with the work Scott and his team performed and will definitely use them again when needed.
