Winter Tree Inspection

Colder temperatures and shorter days are sure signs that winter will soon arrive and serve as a reminder that it's time for your trees and shrubs to have a winter check-up. Now is the time to identify structural defects, pest infestations, diseases or other problems before they can cause serious damage in the spring.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Thanks to a skilled Bartlett crew, our large backyard silver maple is finally clear of power lines and the neighbor's home, and all dead branches have been cleared out for Spring! We are very impressed by the thoroughness of Bartlett's work, and grateful to Erik Grossnickle for his help in coordinating the trimming appointment.
Dena D., Chicago, IL

Erik Grossnickle has always provided me with great service and a quick response. His knowledge has been extremely helpful on my sites and I enjoy working with him. His crews have been nothing but courteous and professional to work with over the years.
Don & Tonie Y., Chicago, IL

Bartlett Tree Experts were wonderful to work with, from start to finish. We scheduled a quote appointment with a courteous staff member, Kathy, and were greeted onsite by a very professional Arborist Representative, Erik, who paid attention to detail as we walked through the yard and followed up with a quote within a matter of an hour or two. They worked to accommodate our request for an ASAP trim, pulled all required permits free of charge, arrived on time, did a walk through with a knowledgeable crew, and consulted with me throughout the trimming when necessary. During our post-job walk through, the trimmers (arborist climbers) explained their work and made sure I was satisfied before they left (our yard in perfectly clean condition). The team takes the shape of the canopy, view from the house, and impact on the growth of the trees into consideration verses simply hacking away like other tree trimmers do. Bartlett Tree Experts take their work very seriously and we will continue to call upon them for future work!
Natalie S., Chicago, IL

Professional. Seamless. Positive. Bartlett Tree Experts were wonderful to work with, from start to finish.

Will and Natalie S., Chicago, IL

I'm writing this review as the neighbor of someone who had a large, massive tree removed by Bartlett Tree Experts. The tree was 105 years old and had been infected with ash borer. But when I say this tree was huge, I mean it was really huge. The three men working, Juvencio, Jose, and Zack, worked their butts off in terrible heat and humidity to break this tree down and haul it away. They never stopped working except for a lunch break. As a neighbor, knowing this massive tree was being cut down and the close proximity to my own house, I was very, very nervous. These guys did a phenomenal job. By the end of the day, each day, you didn't even know a tree that size was being removed. There was no sawdust anywhere; no damage to my home or the owner of the tree's home; no mess left behind; no inconvenience. Just fantastic. If I ever could suggest a tree removal service, this would be it and I would ask specifically for these three guys. They did an outstanding job and so much so, that I asked for their names just so I could write this review. I highly, highly recommend them. Awesome work and great service from this crew.
Jayne C., Chicago, IL

Erik continues to be one of Carl Sandburg Village's most trusted connections. His customer service skills are impeccable as is his response time. To say that he has been loyal to our 16-acre site would be an understatement. In the chaotic field of Property Management, Erik is one of the few contacts who makes my job an easier one. I am able to extend to him trust and in turn am rewarded by exemplary performance and follow up. Two thumbs up for Erik!
Steve H., Property Manager at Draper and Kramer, Chicago, IL

Erik Grossnickle did an amazing job. He is very knowledgeable and followed through with everything he said he was going to do. The two men who worked on our yard were methodical and did a great on the pruning. Thank you, Bartlett.
Karen and Robert F., Chicago, IL

I have worked with Erik on numerous projects over the past three years, and each time he has exceeded expectations. He is professional, reliable, intelligent, and most importantly, a good man. He may not be the cheapest to work with, but neither is my company. When you consider the overall value and service he provides, working with Erik is a no-brainer.
Matt D., Chicago, IL

Erik is very committed and dedicated to giving the best professional service to his clients. He truly loves his job and instills that enthusiasm in his crews and also his clients. He is truly a pleasure to work with.
Jim P., VP Maintenance, Chicago at Moore Landscapes, Inc., Chicago, IL

We had a small job, but Bartlett was great. They were flexible about rescheduling when we had a family emergency, their work was high quality, and they even pruned a few extra shrubs that weren't even in the scope (which just tells me that they take pride in their work and hate to see a poorly maintained garden)! We'd definitely hire Bartlett again for future work.
E. Ruhlin, Chicago, IL

Our patch of the urban forest, in the Wicker Park/Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago, has benefited greatly from our collaboration with Bartlett Tree Experts. It's hard for street trees to thrive; they're planted in too-small spaces, and need to survive damages inflicted by everything from dogs to car doors. The Wicker Park Bucktown Special Services Area hired Bartlett to complete an assessment of our street trees. The resulting inventory includes a detailed record for each tree. It provides a multi-year plan that addresses both necessary maintenance and accounts for special treatments as required. It also calculated the value for this resource. We also knew trees were important, both aesthetically and environmentally, but this inventory put a dollar value on it, which helps us in our advocacy work.

We are also extremely excited to be part of a research study that is evaluating a new fertilizing treatment, bio-char. This technique was used in pre-Columbian agriculture and is now part of a field evaluation in our tree pits. We owe this opportunity to arborist Erik Grossnickle, who has helped educate us on arboriculture, Bartlett Tree Experts are valuable partners. The Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce and Special Service Area (SSA) #33

The staff and the arborist representative are all very professional. Cathryn K., Chicago, IL

I was very impressed with every aspect of the job. Barbara K., Oak Park, IL

Knew what they were doing and very courteously and understanding of my problem with the tree. I appreciated the fast service and the price. Cherlyn P., Chicago, IL

I appreciate having the professionalism, skill, and courtesy of Bartlett's arborists and crews at my homes in Chicago and San Francisco. Lucky me…and my trees! Barbara T., Chicago, IL

Eric Grossnickle did an amazing job. He is very knowledgeable and followed through with everything he said he was going to do. The two men who worked on our yard were methodical and did a great on the pruning. Thank you, Bartlett. Karen and Robert F., Chicago, IL

Bartlett Tree Experts have helped the Lurie Garden achieve its sustainability goals through a comprehensive and effective Integrated Pest Management Program. Due to Bartlett's expert scouting, we have been able to treat all pest problems through beneficial insect releases and to keep the Lurie Garden pesticide free. Bartlett staff provides excellent and reliable service, which is crucial to keeping this public garden looking its best in all seasons.

We've enjoyed working with Erik Grossnickle, our Arborist Representative, on all services Bartlett offers including pruning, natural fertilization, and are amazed with the results from the root invigoration program. Bartlett's technical knowledge and research laboratory provide us with the best available resources for our trees and we would recommend them to any homeowner, landscape partner, or institutional property without reservation.
