Pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient.
Cynthia K., Philadelphia, PA
Very knowledgeable about choosing and treating our trees.
George E., Villanova, PA
When Barlett acquired Bill Johnston, I was concerned I would lose the close personal touch of the Johnston organization, and the neatness and politeness of his crews. I am glad you retained the Johnston employees, and I have seen no difference in the level of service. I trust Bill Johnston's advice and recommendations, and I am very glad I can still deal with him directly.
Lynn S., St. Davids, PA
We have been associated with Bill Johnston for many years, and have been extremely satisfied. He now represents the Bartlett company to the highest degree.
Philip P., Villanova, PA
Mark Shaw is a treasure. His knowledge is encyclopedic and his advice is always extremely helpful and appreciated.
Amos S., Merion Station, PA
Bill has cared for our trees for as long as we have owned our home. We are very grateful for his service, knowledge, and love of our property.
Keith S., Bryn Mawr, PA
I was not here for the actual day of service, but my husband related that the crew was very efficient and friendly. My interactions with John have been terrific. When he realized that his crew did not leave the mulch as was discussed in the proposal, he dropped off two bags of wood chips for me the next week. I would absolutely hire Bartlett again, and I'm hoping maybe to get some help figuring out what to plant in my yard moving forward.
Kristy S., Philadelphia, PA
Everyone we spoke with was professional, knowledgeable, and polite. Very happy with the whole experience.
Ellen R., Bala Cynwyd, PA
Bill has cared for our trees for as long as we have owned our property, we are grateful for his service, knowledge, and love of our property.
Keith S., Bryn Mawr, PA
I have confidence in John Studdy. I appreciate his professionalism and explanation of services needed. in the last two years when neighbors all around me had downed large limbs and trees from storms, I told John that I did not suffer a single loss.
Gary C., Bala Cynwyd, PA
We could not have been more pleased with the entire crew and the efforts they made to make the take down of this massive maple go smoothly. Mark's team is the best!
Kathy B., Gladwyne, PA

Paula K., Drexel Hill, PA
I am writing to express my sincere thanks for a job well done to Dave Miller and his crew. Dave and his crew arrived to our home exactly on time. His crew was polite, considerate, knowledgeable, and very professional. Our concerns were quickly addressed and our tree problem was resolved in a smooth and efficient manner with cleanliness in mind. In the future, we will be sure to recommend your company to our family and friends.
Carl & Laura A., Ardmore, PA
The guys did a tremendous job on Friday. They’re very professional, efficient, and speedy. We are impressed! Many thanks!
Julie B., Havertown, PA
Dealing with Bartlett was very easy from the start... from the initial call into the office, the quick response and getting the work done. Konstanze was a pleasure to work with. I was afraid they were going to have to take too much off of the London Plane tree and it would look funny but they did a great job. I was holding my breath when I saw everything they were taking off but couldn't be more pleased with the result.
Anita A., Conshohocken
Thank you for your email communications regarding removal of our tree in Havertown. It was helpful in the process of working this all out. I also would like to compliment Tom McCarthy for his professional service. He clearly explained the issues with our 100 year old tree which was damaged in a storm. He mapped out what would be needed to take it down and remove. Tom worked out the details and kept me informed along the way. He was sensitive to my concerns and found a way to get the job done safely to all (workers and property). It gave me and the neighbors great peace of mind especially since I was on vacation that week. This was a tree loved by the family. Tom understood that. My sister also lives in Havertown and is going to need some tree work done. She has already asked me how things went and asked for Tom's info. I will be sharing Bartlett Tree Experts and, in particular, Tom's name with the neighbors.
Mena D., Havertown, PA
After meeting with many Arborist and feeling confuse and frustrated, I met Konstanze. She was professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant. Konstanze thoroughly inspected my trees and landscape making suggestions and alternatives for safe care. She patiently explained in detail her recommendations for treatment and was open to questions and concerns. I want to commend Konstanze for a great job she is a wonderful ambassador of Bartlett.
Teresa M., Philadelphia, PA
A belated thank you for sending your crew out for storm cleanup and pruning on Wednesday afternoon. I am pleased with the results, especially the corrective pruning to the sloppy hacks to the Red Maple performed by Asplundh. The new look will take time to get used to but I trust the trees remain healthy enough for a good recovery. Thanks again for a clean, professional performance by the crew.
John M., Havertown, PA
I just wanted to thank you and your team for your effort yesterday. I appreciate the immediacy and seriousness with which you handled the situation. Everything with the insurance company has gone well and thankfully it appears the damage to the home was fairly minimal for such a large tree. We will send along payment for the job once the invoice is received and will certainly recommend your services to others.
Christian B., Havertown, PA
Bartlett did an absolutely beautiful job, it was amazing and I sincerely thank you. Joe, you have the patience of a saint, between all the kids, the parking, and the hard to reach areas you just went on doing your thing with a smile all the time. You are really a great person and extremely conscientious. Joe McGowan and Mark Shaw are the best advertisement for Bartlett, you are both so very wonderful and go out of your way for your customers. It is very much appreciated.
Sybil S., Merion Station, PA
Konstanze did a great job. We really appreciate having someone we could trust come and look over our property and give us an informed opinion about how we can best care for the dozen large trees we have in our yard. The technicians who came to do the treatments were also excellent.
Ami L., Oreland, PA
I could not be more pleased with Bartlett. Mark was out the same day I called; his crew was out the next day for the work. The men that came out were friendly, professional, and quick.
Vicky W., Merion Station, PA
My arborist is very knowledgeable and helpful, and the crew always works to my satisfaction.
Hedy C., Bala Cynwyd, PA
What a great guy! Mark is knowledgeable and not afraid to ask for "more expert" opinions when he feels it necessary; I find this trait to be a rare one in so-called "consultants", which, in fact, they are supposed to be. The implication is that the result is more important than the credit; a rare virtue.
Walter H., Merion, PA
This was the second time we contacted our arborist and both times his professionalism and courtesy were unparalleled.
Paola C., Philadelphia, PA
My arborist has my complete confidence in caring for our trees and respecting customers he serves.
Rose D., Ardmore, PA
Thanks so much for your knowledge, care, and concern for our trees!
Janet M., Wynnewood, PA
As always, very courteous and willing to address my concerns.
Gwen L., Bala Cynwyd, PA
Not sure where you find your employees, but wow! They were polite, professional, and engaging. I felt like I was talking to very well educated individuals who took the time to explain what and why they were doing each activity. Always a pleasure dealing with Bartlett.
Russell G., Haverford, PA
Mark Shaw continues to do an excellent and thorough job for us. He is a "hands-on" specialist with a very involved connection to his staff. I would happily recommend Bartlett to any of our friends.
Kathy B., Gladwyne, PA
We have always found the Bartlett staff members to be extremely competent and professional, especially Tom McCarthy, our arborist representative.
Michael K., Havertown, PA
Professional, knowledgeable, and courteous: that is how I would describe the Bartlett Arborist, Mark, and also his team.
Sonja C., Wynnewood, PA
The Barlett Staff (Steve Goin) were superb. Definitely an asset to Bartlett. They were professional, methodical, courteous, helpful, informative, and truly knowledgeable about the industry. Customer Satisfaction indeed! Cyd R., Philadelphia, PA
John handled the neighbors whose property the tree to be trimmed was on. Crew seemed to really like their job and each other. So they worked well together. Safely. Ellen W., Philadelphia, PA
Extremely pleased with all contacts with staff. Arborist Paul Schmeltzer took time to answer all questions and took detailed notes of required work. Crew that came arrived when they said they would, quickly went over plans, worked efficiently, and cleaned up afterwards. Extremely pleased with all aspects of work. Price seemed very fair. Would recommend to friends and neighbors. Edda K., Philadelphia, PA
Done well. Done safely. Thank you! Marcia J., Merion, PA
Representative and crew were top notch! Suzanne K., Springfield, PA
Great job - organized, well coordinated, worked well with outside party (PECO) regarding neighbor's electric. No hiccups. Perfect. Ron G., Ardmore, PA
Paul Schmeltzer was very pleasant to deal with and I felt very confident with his suggestions about what tree work needed to be done. I was very happy with the work that was done and I was also surprised with how reasonable the price was. It was a job well done and I would definitely recommend Bartlett to anyone I know who might need tree work done in the future. Anita A., Conshohocken, PA
The tulip poplar work looks very good. Your crew must spend more time cleaning up than they do climbing. Nice clean work site. Thanks. Dan L., Springfield, PA
Mark, and others, went above and beyond last winter when large branches fell across our driveway blocking access. Many other customers had problems too, but Mark solved ours right away because we needed to get a sick cat to our vet. That's service! Phil O., Narberth, PA
Tom was very helpful and professional with his advice. The technician who did the injection was also very professional and friendly. Rick S., Springfield, PA
I will recommend you highly! It was a pleasure working with you. Melissa S., Bryn Mawr, PA
Tom and the crew were very respectful and did a great job! Jane K., Havertown, PA
Tom is courteous and informative. If he could tell the future and know my tree will survive, he'd be Aces. Tom Z., Broomall, PA
Very pleased with Tom McCarthy's attention regarding our property! Edward B., Bryn Mawr, PA
The work on the trees looks wonderful! Needless to say, we were thrilled to see the limbs removed, the Japanese maple cleaned up, and the arborvitae removed. Thank you so much for your speedy and efficient service. We'd be happy to recommend your company to our friends and colleagues. Joan A., Havertown, PA
You are the finest tree service in the country and when I own a home again you for sure will be my first choice. Thank you for years of excellent service. Vickie M., Havertown, PA
Could not have been more pleased with all aspects of the work and the people. You understood my needs perfectly and delivered in a timely and effective manner. The workers were very professional&effective and efficient. Have already recommended you to all my neighbors and friends and will continue to do so! John N., Penn Valley, PA
Thank you and keep up the good work, Mark! Duncan C., Narberth, PA
Mark Shaw is excellent. I have probably switched to Bartlett solely because of him. Shelly P., Merion Station, PA
John Studdy is a super tree guy!
Kevin P., Philadelphia, PA
I have been meaning to e-mail you to tell you that we now have more evidence of what a wonderful job you and your crew did trimming our trees last season. When our neighbors recently hauled out all the branches that had been downed in their yards by the winter storms and put them curbside for collection, we were astounded at the size of the piles and the size of the limbs involved. They were huge and there were an incredible number of them. We had no branches at all that were larger than 3/4 of an inch in diameter, and had only about a half dozen of those. We snapped them up into smaller pieces, put them in our pile of kindling wood for our fireplaces, and that was that. We're very grateful to you for saving us a lot of hard labor and for saving our trees from damage. Janet S., Merion, PA
Mark Shaw got everything done in a timely fashion. Your workers were excellent. I was excited just watching them work, and am very pleased with the job. You have earned my loyal business. Thank you! Joel S., Merion Station, PA
The workers (Steve Goin and crew) were punctual, professional, and very courteous. I am very happy with the tree that was pruned (and so is my neighbor)! I would use Bartlett again if needed! Marsia C., Philadelphia PA
John Studdy has been wonderful. I was out of town during the ice storm and large tree limbs were down on my property. I sent John an e-mail and he took care of getting the limbs cleaned up within 24 hours. It gave me great peace of mind while I was away. Susan G., Bala Cynwyd PA
We have always been happy with all the Bartlett people we have dealt with over the years. Thank you! Ellen B., Lower Merion, PA
The job was done to my satisfaction and was left clean. I was treated courteously by the crew and I would recommend Bartlett to friends. B., Merion, PA
The job was done to my satisfaction and was left neat and clean. The crew treated me courteously and I would recommend Bartlett to my friends/family. Andrea W., Philadelphia, PA
Always attentive, accommodating, efficient, and expert! Andrea W, Philadelphia, PA
Love working with Bartlett! Thanks to John, another job well done. Elizabeth S., Drexel Hill, PA
Bartlett provides top-notch service. The 2 trees we had removed were huge, and all was done very quickly, professionally, and all was cleaned up within the same day. Also, the man who does our quarterly shrub treatments (Conrad) is great too; always willing to answer questions, and very professional and courteous. Our plantings have never looked better! Joyce K., Havertown, PA
Mark Shaw has always been most helpful and thoughtful in his recommendations. He pays attention to the ideas and wishes of his customers when counseling about tree and shrub care. It's a pleasure working with him. Nina M., Wynnewood, PA
John Studdy was patient and sensitive to the challenges posed by neighbors who disagreed with what to do about the trees that straddles property lines. With his help we reached a solution that satisfied everyone. His efforts preserved a wonderful tree, as well as, a measure of neighborly accord. MANY thanks. Mary S., Bala Cynwyd, PA
The folks were all pleasant and worked steadily and carefully. We look forward to your next visit! Fern C., Philadelphia, PA
Michael was very professional from my first contact with him. He followed through with the job. The crew came and they were very careful to take the large limb down without disturbing any of the other shrubs and structures on my property that were under the limb. Very happy with the service and people who did this job. Debbie C., Havertown, PA
I was very impressed with Mark Shaw's knowledge and obvious love for horticulture, and with the excellent job done by the work crew. They even cleaned up the twigs and branches that had fallen in the backyard earlier in the winter. I learned a lot from talking with Mark, and appreciated his insight. We expect to deal with him regularly in the future, and would welcome any suggestions from him for work that he might recommend. Amos S., Merion Station, PA
The staff were excellent. Bartlett services are and have been and this opinion has not changed over the years I have been using the service. John Studdy has been wonderful to work with and I will miss being in contact with him. Taking down this one huge tree from my small city yard posed a challenge which was well met. You can be sure that if I had a large property, Bartlett would still be on my phone list for services. Shirlee S., Philadelphia, PA
John Studdy did a fabulous job! The job was clean, and he was knowledgeable and professional. Thank you. Rebecca S., Bala Cynwyd, PA
I found everyone from Steve to the whole crew that pruned my trees to be very helpful and answered all the questions I had. They were very professional and I would recommend them. Joanne T., Philadelphia, PA
I appreciate the fact that your staff always checks in before and reports afterwards. Elizabeth M., Wynnewood, PA
Mark Shaw was both knowledgeable and helpful, as well as prompt, courteous, and reliable. I very much appreciated working with him. Thank you. Abby L., Ardmore, PA
Everyone that I have met from Bartlett is knowledgeable and super professional. I am so impressed with both the work performed and the customer service. Keep up the good work. Beth A., Wynnewood, PA
The young man who served our home was professional and friendly. He informed us about the services which he would provide. He was very competent. As always we were very happy with the service provided! Betty W., Philadelphia, PA
John was very helpful and knowledgeable. He also explained in way that I could understand, not being a tree expert myself. Everything was wonderful! I was thoroughly pleased and I appreciate your professionalism. The crew left the property in good condition and I was happy to return to my home to see how well the project went. Jeff W., Holmes, PA
I very much appreciated being walked around after the job was finished to have the precise work completed pointed out. An excellent "finish-up" to a fine job. Elizabeth M., Wynnewood, PA
Professional, knowledgeable, courteous, friendly. In today's society, it is comforting to recognize a company that is reputable and sincere in its mission.
Connie G., Drexel Hill, PA
Beautiful work product and absolutely professional. Deborah S., Merion Station, PA
