Wesley Rivers, Arborist Representative at Bartlett Tree Experts, works out of our Southlake, TX office.
More about Wesley Rivers
Growing up in West Tennessee, Wesley developed a love for the outdoors, especially by spending time in the woods.
Moving to Texas after high school opened some new doors as he began his journey towards arboriculture. He graduated in 2005 from Stephen F. Austin University with a Bachelor's Degree in Urban Forestry.
After graduation he spent three months as a Tree and Shrub Specialist at Trugreen before accepting a position as a Garden Manager and Plant Health Technician at Clint Horticulture.
Wesley acquired his ISA Certification in 2009 and became specialized in all facets of plant healthcare, and various technical pruning strategies. While this time was very valuable, he longed to return to tree work and joined Alpine Tree Service, as Director of Plant Health Care in 2014.
Wesley is proud to join Bartlett Tree Experts following the acquisition of Alpine and brings a positive attitude and desire to do only the very best tree work to his job every day.
What Our Customers Are Saying About Wesley Rivers
Everything was very professional and the crew did a great job.
Joanne I., Southlake, TX
Everybody was really great. The job was to remove a tree on top of a flagstone retaining wall. I wish somebody including myself had thought to put a bag of mulch or something on the top of the wall where the tree trunk would hit to avoid chipping the wall. Just an idea for future use.
Barbara N., Grapevine, TX
I have had experience with Arborists previously in owning fourteen homes and several commercial buildings. Mr Rivers exceeds all others I have know in knowledge, courtesy, and communication. Since our first contact we have recommended Bartlett and Wes Rivers. We know our son and our friend were very pleased with his service.
Frank Allen, Southlake, TX
Wes Rivers represents your company extremely well.
Mark Theilken, Southlake, TX
Wesley Rivers is one of the nicest and most professional person we have ever met. He is always upbeat, has a can do attitude, polite, and always ready to research and solve any problem we may be having. Additionally, the young man named James who comes out to spray is also very helpful, polite, and energetic. Oh, and the guys that do the pruning, they are very detailed and leave the property cleaner than they found it.
General Comments: We will stick with Bartlett/Alpine!
Robert and Cindy Hughes, Southlake, TX
Wesley Rivers is our arborist representative, and we could not be in better hands. For the last four years, he and his crew have consistently exceeded our expectations. From fertilization, to disease mitigation, to precision pruning, to cabling, to tree removal and cleanup—Wes and his guys (including Victor and James) have handled every job courteously, professionally, and with a laser focus on the long-term health and well-being of our trees and landscape. After having had multiple issues with a previous company, we could not be happier with Wes and his team. He is extremely knowledgeable. An expert problem solver. A straight shooter. And a class act. We could not recommend him more highly.
Dave and Suzie H., Colleyville, TX
Wes is great, really appreciate his advice and knowledge. The crew was outstanding. Removed two dead trees in a tight spot and left the place clean.
Joel Justiss, Colleyville, TX
Wes is very responsive and helpful. And I have spoken several times over the phone with Missy, she is also very customer focused and friendly. Good service, I can always count on you guys. Keep doing it.
Wade Hiney, Grapevine, TX
Comments about Arborist Representative: I respect Wesley Rivers’ assessments and suggestions
Greg Hidalgo, Grapevine, TX
Wesley has been excellent and is the reason why my ten tree investment has survived. He is an encyclopedia of knowledge and does not hesitate to draw on the knowledge of his peers. He was one of the very first to solve the Armored Scale Italian Cypress tree pandemic in our city. Truly expert service.
Don B., Colleyville, TX
Wesley has always been very helpful. James was extremely courteous and knowledgeable. I appreciate your service.
Gary S., Colleyville, TX
Very professional. Attentive to the homeowner's needs and requests. As of now, the job is still not complete, as we are still waiting on the stump grinding. Wes is keeping us informed as to when we might expect completion.
George C., Grapevine, TX
I respect Wesley Rivers. His assessments and suggestions are great.
Greg H., Grapevine, TX
Very respectful and timely with calls to let me know when he would be coming out. I did refer Bartlett to my business and you came out and looked at a tree for us.
Anne S., Keller, TX
Wes, James, and the crew are great. Wes is the reason we use Bartlett. He truly cares.
David B., Southlake, TX
Very good communication and service at our house through the years.
Robbie F., Grapevine, TX
I have worked with Wes before, he definitely knows what he is talking about. He is very knowledgeable, good service, very reliable, I trust them for all my tree service needs.
Wade H., Grapevine, TX
Wes is a very cordial teacher, who strives to be very informative without being didactic. We are fortunate that as an expert in his field he does not hide behind the technical side of his practice, rather he helps us to understand it. The fellow that did the application was also cordial and very accommodating and thorough.
Frank A., Southlake, TX
Wes is Fantastic. He came out to survey our needs. Showed up at my house with the crew. Reviewed everything with me and the crew. Returned later that morning to insure all was going well. The crew took extra care to prevent damage to my Japanese Maples. Cleaned up everything, even the pile of trash we did not get bagged before they arrived. Went above and beyond. Great service.
Joe and Debbie C., Grapevine, TX
We have been working with Wesley for years. He and his crew have treated us fairly and have always done a good job.
Bill D., Hurst, TX
Highest praise for Wes, Emilio, Abel, and Jose for their professionalism and skill.
Virginia L., Grapevine, TX
I have been working with Alpine since I moved to Southlake. They have always provided the service requested and the crews have also been the most courteous. I am glad to see with the transition to Bartlett, this has not changed. I have a great respect for Wes and his knowledge.
Kurt S., Southlake, TX
Everyone has been very helpful and knowledgeable about the pruning and treatments that have been recommended for our trees. We are confident that our trees are getting the very best care.
Robbie F., Grapevine, TX
Wes Rivers has always gone out of his way to help us understand what the issue is, what solutions are possible, what the pricing would be, and the timing. He also takes care to point out potential ramifications. He is a complete professional. James also is helpful, understanding, thorough, efficient and professional. He, too, takes time to explain what he is going to do, how long it will take, and what steps might be needed for follow-up.
Lee S., Colleyville, TX
Wesley Rivers was very informative about my tree problems. He made suggestions to correct the problem with the Crepe Myrtles and Live Oaks. He is extremely knowledgeable. I appreciate all his input. I have recommended him and your service to friends.
Sandy N., Grapevine, TX
We switched to Alpine/Bartlett from a competitor based primarily on the knowledge, expertise, and professionalism of our arborist, Wes Rivers. He is professional, friendly, very detailed in his approach, and exhibits a sense of urgency in responding to the needs of his customers. He also explains why he suggests the work that needs to be done. Missy was friendly and helpful and quick to set up appointment times. James has been outstanding at applying needed treatments and very communicative through the process. The crew that pruned our trees did a nice job and were thorough in their work and left no trace that they had been here. We are pleased we made the change and look forward to working with Alpine/Bartlett for many years to come.
Mike D., Grapevine, TX

Everyone is always wonderful.
Tom and Twyla O'K., Grapevine, TX
Just wanted to let you know you and your guys did a great job trimming the trees prior to all the storms. While we had a couple of green limbs fall from the top of the Elm that had already lost some limbs, near the drive way. We did not have any large dead limbs fall. Your guys got them all. The yard and the trees weathered the storms well with only small branches to pickup. Thanks for the great work.
John R., Southlake, TX
Wesley is great. He is knowledgeable and friendly. I have complete confidence in what he tells me.
