What Our Bowie, MD Customers Are Saying
We were very pleased with Bartlett Tree Experts. The team showed up on time. Chris Larkin was here for much of the time the team worked. Our tree is much safer and looks much better.
All were professional and obviously competent, beginning with our Arborist, Chris Larkin. We appreciated his oversight visit during the day of work to ensure things were going smoothly and to see if we had any questions. At the end of the job, the crew chief walked us around the property to show what had been done, and why. They said they would be here between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., and they were at our door at 8:28 a.m. Very pleased.
They removed a large Black Cherry tree with basal decay, removed one dead Elm tree, pruned a huge Black Cherry tree next to house (some of the crew said it might be one of the largest BC's in Maryland), and pruned a Pin Oak. They removed all wood and debris.
The crew was amazing. These trees were all near gardens, fences, houses, and a narrow but critical access road. Absolutely nothing was damaged during the work. A bucket truck was used and large trunk-sized branches were tied and lowered to the ground gently. A crane removed huge pieces of tree trunks. At one time, there were at least four large work trucks parked along side the road for this work, but the crew was careful to ensure that the road was always passable for car traffic while they were parked and working.
Two of the crew used ropes to climb into the large Black Cherry being trimmed. They made their way to the very tops and outreaches of this tree to do their work, and they too used ropes to gently lower larger pieces to the ground. Their work was so amazing that we brought chairs to the work site and watched in amazement nearly all day. We all took lots of pictures.
One aspect that I was very pleased to see is their use of personal safety equipment. The crew used ear, eye, and head protection at all times, and body and leg protection as well. From chatting with members of the crew, we learned they were all experienced in their trade. A supervisor with many years experience was always on site. In chatting with them, we learned that Bartlett is very safety cautious and has a routine for checking and replacing all equipment including the ropes used by the climbers. Every one of the crew were pleasant and professional.
After they left, there was very little evidence that they'd been here other than some sawdust around the trunk locations. There was no damage to the lawn and no dents or gulleys in the ground from falling branches due the manner in which they were removed. They raked up every twig in the yard and along the road where they had parked.
The only thing that could have been improved on slightly was office communication. We had also contracted to have some tree fertilization done and we were not sure when this was happening. Another employee came by about 10 days later and did that work, so all in all everything was done and we are very pleased.
