What Our Customers Are Saying About Scott Tapp
I was pleased with both Bartlett representatives who handled my request for service. Both were courteous and knowledgeable regarding the project. The arborist was quick to point out another problem regarding the tree that will require cabling to correct. The crew member was careful about spray drift to surrounding plants that may be harmful. I am pleased with the overall Bartlett service.
Steve V., Hamilton, NJ

Julie C., Princeton, NJ
My representative had a keen understanding of the concerns and issues threatening my garage. The crew who came to my house to prune were so friendly and kindly answered all questions I had regarding the work. Great experience all around.
Linda H., Pennington, NJ
Scott Tapp is terrific.
Anthony A., Pennington, NJ
incredibly helpful technician.
Amit B., Belle Mead, NJ
Jason is just great. He knows every one of my plants and their problems. Could not ask for more. Also it helps that he has serviced my garden for years and knows what is needed.
Judith S., Princeton, NJ
I was recommended to Scott Tapp and Bartlett by my landscape designer. My experience with Scott was very positive, he explained clearly and expertly what I may need without going above what was best for my trees and bushes. The crew of three who came to my place were exceptional and friendly. Daniel, the lead guy explained exactly what they were going to do and all three of them did an amazing job. They climbed the trees and cut down with a lot of care and thoughtfulness. The results are more than I expected, really well done and balanced. Some of my neighbors had their trees trimmed unthoughtfully by other tree companies and they look like they got chopped down by machines. Overall, I am very pleased by the professionalism, expertise, and friendliness of Scott, Dan, and the rest of the crew.
Yu O., Princeton Junction, NJ
I have been consistently impressed with the Bartlett representatives and crew members. They have all been courteous, professional, and responsive to my questions. My tree is thriving and I am a happy customer.
Janet S., Belle Mead, NJ
Scott is very knowledgeable about the state of my special but difficult tree and his timing for treatments is spot on. It is more than just a job to him. I have not found this to be true with previous companies.
June B., Trenton, NJ
Scott Tapp was helpful assessing our trees and discussing care options.

Anthony A., Pennington, NJ
When we do the walk and talk about my property, Scott makes me feel sure that I am doing what I need to do to have a healthy, safe, and beautiful environment. He is great at letting me know what I do not have to do. My landscaper recommended Scott and Bartlett, I trust her, and it has been such a great firm to work with. Wayne and Joe were the crew who came to do this particular work, and they were terrific. They explained exactly what they were going to do, and the work went smoothly. I could hear them discussing the health of one particular tree outside my office window, they were completely focused on the job. The property was left in perfect shape. Everyone, from Jackie in admin to the crew onsite was experienced, professional, and a pleasure to deal with. Bartlett is a firm that you can completely trust with your property. I love my landscaping, there are a lot of different issues that can impact mature trees, and I know I am doing what I can to make sure they stay healthy and safe as long as possible. It is a bonus that they are so easy and pleasant to work with. It is worth noting that this work was done during the quarantine. Before they came out to assess our property, I received a full briefing on what they were doing to ensure our mutual safety. Protection was handled both in a way that followed best practices, but also with care and a sense of humor, which was very welcome in a stressful time.

Anthony A., Pennington, NJ
My wife and I wanted to thank you and the excellent crew that came to our home early this morning for their good work in eliminating the hazards and clearing out as many of the downed branches as possible given that many were frozen into the snow and ice. We much appreciate your getting your folks out here so promptly and look forward to their return when the conditions permit.
Milford S., Lawrenceville, NJ
I had to leave the house today well before Jason and the crew finished their work and when I got back six hours later my first thought was: "This is exactly what I wanted, he read my mind." I realize that both of you helped get this job coordinated and accomplished and so I want to thank you for making it happen, and special thanks to Jason who did such a fabulous job.
Francesa C., Pennington, NJ
Scott provides us with good information and reasonable suggestions for care of our trees. Always a pleasure to consult with him.
Susan C., Princeton, NJ
The dead ash came down extremely smoothly and this is the very first time that my husband was able to watch the work in progress since he is now retired and home during the day. He asked me to make sure to tell you that Billy and the crew were an absolute pleasure to watch, highly professional, competent, and properly equipped. They made taking down this very large tree look easy, even though we know it was not. We have been clients for well over twenty years and my retired engineer husband has great respect for work done well.
Francesca C., Pennington, NJ
Jason and Beau were here on time, were very nice, and worked efficiently. The trees look great. They trimmed prudently, opened up the insides, and just generally made everything look better. I am really pleased and grateful.
Gail U., Princeton, NJ
Scott Tapp is outstanding.
Jane R., Lawrenceville, NJ
Scott really cares about our trees and it shows.
Keith S., Hightstown, NJ
The Bartlett crew that come to work at our home are the best. Scott is so knowledgeable and I look forward to asking him questions which he is always able to answer.
Barbara H. , Princeton, NJ
Bartlett is always professional. I can rely on them to do the right thing for my trees, pruning, fertilizing, or pest control. They are the best.

Doug S.., Belle Mead, NJ
Eric K., Pennington, NJ
Scott is incredibly helpful and I trust him to deal with problems with my trees.
Alfred B., Pennington, NJ
Nice guys, knew their stuff, Scott Tapp is a consummate professional.
Jonathan P., Hopewell, NJ
Jason Bond is excellent. He is always willing to take the time to explain to me what needs to be done and what he is doing. He does a wonderful job with each service. I miss Ryan, my original Arborist Representative, as he is the person who put into place my current contracts and he knew exactly what my goals are, but Scott Tapp has been very good in responding to my concerns since he took over my contracts. We had some initial scheduling mix-ups, but that has been resolved to my satisfaction. I appreciate Scott's immediate response to my inquiries.
Julianne I., Ewing, NJ
Very responsive, attentive, and knowledgeable.
