Tom and staff have been sooo nice. Our trees had not had professional care for over 30 thirty years. The crew was here for one and a half days. Went out to see what was happening several times. They laughed when I said they were my entertainment. Asked them questions about how they decided which branch to remove and they quickly told me the why. Other then the cuts on the trees, we would never had known they were here. Not a branch, twig, or leaf was left on the ground.

Tom Tyler shows a true knowledge of trees, he is truly trustworthy, he is reliable and gives you his time. It's hard to find good service from an indivisual who enjoys what he/she does, but is also very knowledgeable on that subject. We are so happy with his service. Additionally, the crew members that have been out to our house have been so polite, thorough, and reliable.

I have to tell you that your crew was amazing. The trees look so much better, and I could not believe how much dead wood was up there. Well worth the money for a professional job.
Robert B., Bloomingdale, IL
Tom Tyler has always been a reliable source for accurate information about our trees with reasonable recommendations to optimize their growth and health. While we haven't always done everything he recommended, we appreciated his low key approach to keeping in touch without being too pushy. When we have used Bartlett, we have been totally impressed with the skill and artistry of their crew.
Bartlett Tree really knows their stuff! You respect nature, trees, and the environment you also respect the properties you work on by leaving them better than when you arrived and you deal respectfully with your clients by communicating clearly and helpfully. We respect the individuals we have met who are employed by Bartlett Tree as well as the way you run your company.
Karen E., Naperville, IL

Bartlett arborists always explain the what and why of what they do, and what I need to do to enjoy healthy plants and trees. I get excellent results, and I have confidence in this company.
John B., Western Springs, IL
The gentleman that did our recent servicing identified an issue with the Oak tree in our backyard. He took a soil sample in order to identify the tree's issue, but some extra, more individualized treatment of the tree right then to jump start the tree's recovery. I so appreciate him initiating the treatment of our Oak. He couldn't have been more helpful.
Ann M., Burr Ridge, IL
I've always found our arborists to be knowledgeable and pleasant.
Nancy M., Hinsdale, IL

Julie M., Naperville, IL
We were very pleased with the service provided by Bartlett Tree Service. Tom Tyler inspected our property and prepared a proposal for everything we needed - even though we couldn't do all the services at once - we now have a checkoff list to help beautify our property. Cathy in the office was incredibly warm and helpful. She even called us back after the service to see how things went. It's hard to find that kind of service anymore. The crew that came to our house were so nice and courteous. The were also very helpful when we had some questions. We know we need other services this spring and will definitely be calling Bartlett Tree Service for other services.
Diane R., Downers Grove, IL
Tom and his crew are great! The tree men are very polite and accommodating.
Marie C., Oak Brook, IL
The crew did a superb job. The work was difficult as large branches needed to be trimmed over some power lines to a residence. They performed safely and without incident regarding the wires. Very professional and courteous. They also left the work site clean and neat. Good job!
Bill W., Naperville, IL
Your company took down a pine tree for me in the front of my townhouse. I must tell you how pleased I was with the expertise of the crew, the speed of the job, and the very thorough clean-up afterward.
