Brian Hiemstra has been our Bartlett Arborist since Bartlett began servicing our trees many years ago. He is great, kind, responsive, extremely knowledgeable, and knows our yard. We appreciate him and the service he provides very much.
Charles W.

Brian Hiemstra is the very best.
Kathy C.

I was concerned about the general health of my tree. Last summer during a wind event a large limb broke off and just missed my parked car. I wanted to save the tree if possible and Brian suggested trimming and taking some weight off the tree as a good option. After the work was completed the crew leader assured me that the tree was in good health. That gave me some peace of mind. Thanks Bartlett.
George R.

We are appreciative of the level of service and quality of the work. All the crews who have worked for us over the years are professional and talented. I like the way Scott looks out for us to anticipate issues in advance and keeps us updated on the progress of work. Would not use anyone else, regardless of the pricing. Have always felt the price paid was worth the service.
John I.

Great team and customer focused.
Steve H.

The Representative was informative on what would take place, he made sure things that I did not want broke did not get broken and he kept his crew on task while cutting limbs and instructing younger employees on how to do what they needed to do. I was very impressed by his professionalism. When we need another trim in the future, you will be our first call.
Tom A.

So happy to have your arborist come to check our tree. After the tornado that came through our neighborhood and damaged so many trees, everyone with a chain saw came through and offered to trim and clear out our trees. They did not appear too knowledgable and were clearly looking for a quick buck. We did not trust them with our trees.
Dave H.

Crew did an exceptional job with the pruning and removal of my trees. Cannot thank you enough. You have gained a customer for years to come.
T. J.

Brian takes great care of us. He even brings treats for our pet muskrat. Our West highland Terrier also likes Brian and she does bark at other tree service companies who approach our yard.
Ted E.

Brian did a fantastic job of identifying the right maintenance for our trees. The crew that came out was friendly, courteous, and highly efficient. The work was performed beyond our expectations.
Greg C.

Brian has been great, very knowledgeable, and helpful. Look forward to seeing the Maples on our property improve.
Nancy R.

Great service from Brian, he always explains things to me.
Connie M.

Scott VanWyk is very knowledgeable, helpful, and accommodating. I would recommend doing business with him.

Ashley B.

Brian’s support over the years is valued. He knows our property well and has helped significantly to keep our trees and bushes maintained optimally.
Tony F.

I told Brian on the phone how much I appreciated the good care his crew gave my dear and lovely trees. My backyard Maple had eight major limbs pruned and it helped the tree have the lift and new life needed.
Beth B.

My wife and I are recent homeowners with very little experience in maintaining a yard. The staff at Bartlett made matters very easy for us to get our yard into shape. We were very impressed with the quality of their work and sense of professionalism. We will definitely use their service in the future.
John M.

Andy is great. We know that you all have been busy this past year and the weather has often kept you from getting out in the field to complete jobs. That said, we have never felt neglected, when Andy and various crews have been at our home, everyone has taken care to protect our property and do a great job for our trees. Bottom line, our trees have never looked so good. As far as we are concerned, there is no higher praise.
Mary M.

Every single person I have ever worked with at Bartlett has been professional and courteous. I have complete confidence in their work. Scott Van Wyk has worked with me for years and I trust his knowledge and expertise.

Coral H.

Brian has always been very responsive to our requests especially this month during the ice storm. He came out immediately and accessed the damage and had a crew out here the next day. The crew did an exceptional job working in terrible conditions. I always recommend Bartlett.
Dave G.

Brian Hiemstra and his staff were great, responded very quickly after a wind storm to attend to the tree that crashed down on our property, despite many needs for similar help with downed trees and limbs across the community.

We will let you know our future needs once we finish assessing what is still damaged out there. Thanks again for sending a talented crew our way on such short notice. It was appreciated by all.
Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park

We highly recommend Bartlett Tree Experts.

Wonderful staff--always professional, courteous, and efficient!
Tony F.

Wonderful staff, always professional, courteous, and efficient!

Scott Van Wyk and his crew are super, and a pleasure to work with. With big trees, there are always things to be done, and I believe big trees must be maintained, at least as a safety issue. I am very glad Scott and your company are there for me.
Pete W.

We were very pleased with Brian's initial consultation. He was knowledgeable, and his recommendations clearly took into account the health and well-being of the trees. The three people who did the work were efficient, courteous, and helpful.
John M.

I love working with Keith Hogan. He is professional, polite, and has a friendly personality. I trust his knowledge and expertise.

The Arborist that came to estimate the work, Ryan Bose, was clearly very knowledgeable. I very much appreciated his assessment of the health of our tree. The crewmember that did the field work was very careful, professional; and thorough. The fellow (Andrew) that did the liquid fertilizer application this morning (10/17) was also very careful, professional, and thorough. In general I was very pleased with all aspects of the work performed at our residence.

Brian has been wonderfully attentive to our very mature elm tree. We have appreciated his recommendations over many years. The crew who did the trimming/thinning last week was great, too. The tree looks rejuvenated!
Bill S.

Your tree removal crew was great! I could not be happier with the job they did and the cleanup after.
Bill A.

Your crew did a wonderful job protecting the windows on the nearby houses. I was impressed to hear that you put up wood to prevent window breakage from flying wood chips.
Pat B.

It was fun to watch how the guys work. Worked very carefully and safely. Cleaned up beautifully.

Brian is super courteous and knowledgeable. I especially appreciate the care and consideration that went into the assessment.

Your company did a fantastic job removing all of our trees even though the harsh weather made the job brutal. It is definitely worth the higher price to get a professional company to do the work. Mike (along with Ryan) and his team were very professional in their work, communication with us, and protecting the neighbors yard from damage! If you ever need a recommendation about your company, please let me know.
Robert R.

You are the most professional group I have ever worked with -- the entire Bartlett team are outstanding!
Jim S.

As always, my representative Brian McKenzie was great answering all my questions and dealing with my many mind changes. I was not home when the crew did the work, but couldn't even tell they had been there except for the missing branches they were to cut. They always do a really good job. They work very safely which is important to me.
Lynn F.

Good communications and follow-up from beginning to end. Staff was up front about what would be required for tree removal and chipping, so there was no great surprise when they had to drive the truck and chipper across my lawn. However, they were very careful to minimize the impact to the lawn, and did a great job overall.
Tom L.

I really appreciate Scott. He is always helpful and supportive. He is very knowledgeable on a wide range of issues relating to trees. The crews that spray and trim are also excellent.
Robert P.

We have been extremely pleased with your wonderful service. Everyone we have dealt with has been so helpful, professional, and prompt. Extremely impressed with your level of service. Thank you so much.
Brian D.

I have recommended your services to others on our neighborhood Google site. I really appreciate all of the good service we have had over the years -- Thank you!
Rick H.

I would love to refer your company to anyone I may know who is needing an expert. Ryan exceeded our expectations with his attention to detail and compassion for our trees. It is comforting to know that they are in good hands because some of them have very strong sentimental value that cannot be replaced.
Theresa W.

The guys did a fabulous job. The tree looks great and they left the yard looking even better than when they started. I am telling everyone to use Bartlett if they want a great job done.

Your team did a fantastic job on our sycamore. I appreciate that they let my neighbor know what they were doing as well. Someone asked me, "Bartlett? Are they very expensive?" I said, "They're not cheap, but they are the best and I wouldn't use anyone else even if they were less expensive," When my children are sick I get them the best care possible, don't even think about the cost. Same with my trees. Thank you.
Susan W.

The guys that decorated our tree were incredible. They were very courteous, neat, decorated the tree and ran the cords like they would do for their own home. I cannot say enough about the staff that were at our home, this is rare in the service industry. I would recommend you to anyone in need of tree care.
Gerri N.

I have dealt with Bartlett for many years based upon a recommendation I received from our landscape designer. Since that decision I have not been disappointed with any facet of their services. All of their representatives from office staff and sales through service personnel have been cordial and above all, professional. Their tag line, “Safety, Above All Else”, is not just lip service, but rather practiced to a very high level. We have had several complicated tree situations which required specialized equipment and protocol. All have been handled with the utmost of care. I trust our arborist needs to no one else.
