What Our Customers Are Saying
Your team did a good job yesterday. I am very pleased with the pruning they did on the dogwood and flowering plum. They left the project completely cleaned up. In fact, the drive way looked better after than before they did the work.
S. W., Shoreline, WA
Office staff, representative, and crew were all awesome. This was a tough job to get right due to a contentious relationship between adjacent property owners. The crew focused on the job, performed well under the pressure, worked diligently, and safe. I can not say enough good things about how the four men performed.
B.G., Medina, WA
Everyone on all the crews I have met in the three years I have been working with Bartlett have been professional and personable. Cory and Robert answered all my questions and explained what they can do, set up a plan to get it done, and the job quotes are always detailed and thorough. Sandi has also been incredibly friendly and helpful in scheduling, answering questions, taking payments. I love working with everyone at Bartlett.
Melanie F., Edmonds, WA
I have enjoyed all my interactions with my arborist and whichever Bartlett crew handled my projects as well as with the administrative staff. I have found everyone to be courteous and punctual. Cory has always been willing to share his knowledge and has provided advice. The crews have always been efficient in completing their work while being respectful of my property, which I greatly appreciate.
Nancy G., Seattle, WA
Bartlett did a great job removing one of my trees and pruning two others. I left in the morning and when I returned, I would have had no idea that they had been there except that the job was done. The arborist was also very helpful, giving guidance, and information. I highly recommend their services.
Danae N., Seattle, WA
I was beyond happy with my interactions with Corey, Danny, and Travis. Corey got this together for us really efficiently, which was super helpful because I have limited ability to track stuff like this. Danny and Travis were a pleasure to meet. They were so kind to explain their work to my kids, who are their biggest fans.
Michi N., Seattle, WA
Sterling has been very knowledgeable and helpful. It is wonderful having access to an arborist.
Chris L., Kirkland, WA
The crew members, Martin and Daniel, were excellent. They gave informative information about the living trees and did a good job removing the trees that we slated for removal. The man who brought the large grinding machine was equally as proficient and nice. We have been telling our neighbors that we recommend Bartlett and our neighbor across the street has Bartlett on a schedule to maintain her old, huge maples.
Jay D., Shoreline, WA
Everyone I worked with in the Kenmore, WA office was friendly, timely, and professional. The work was well done. Our arborist and the office staff were extremely helpful. The technicians worked very efficiently and safely to get the job done. They left the work area clean and tidy.
Rich B., Kenmore, WA
The crew was professional, courteous, and responsive to questions and requests. Excellent service.
Colette M., Seattle, WA
Sterling was on time for the estimate and his crew was also on time, they were very courteous and respectful of our property and that of our neighbors. When I need more tree work done I hope we can get the same crew. My wife was impressed, now that is saying something.
Bruce A., Kirkland, WA
The two man crew that removed a large weeping birch were very careful and efficient. It clearly showed the bucket operator was skilled at moving the bucket and making precise cuts. Very nice work, done with care to protect adjacent property, and at a fair price.
Charles B., Kenmore, WA
Trever and Tighe were on time, listened, and responded to our plans for a new fence. They also corrected some tree work that had been poorly done a few months ago by other Bartlett workers. We were most happy with their work. Cory is easy to work with, personable, and represents your company well.
Karen, Seattle, WA
Thank you so much for all your work helping us get our trees and yard healthy and cleaned up. I so appreciated your professionalism and interest in helping us make the changes. You did a great job at providing me clear information, while still allowing me to make the decisions. I look forward to continuing to work together.
Blair, Seattle, WA
The crew members were very respectful and hard working. They had a very difficult situation to get there truck into my yard. The street is very narrow and had a lot of parked cars to make it very hard to get there truck onto my property.
Michael C., Seattle, WA
Everyone has been, professional, courteous, personable, and always ready to explain the work that is being done. This is the second time I have used Bartlett and I will continue to call when the need arises.
Pam L., Kenmore, WA
We have used Bartlett several times over the years, going back to when they were Four Seasons Tree Care. Always have done a good job, prompt, friendly, and always clean up well when done with the work.
C. S., Kenmore, WA
Dependable service I could rely on every time, whether it was tree removal or storm damaged tree debris.
John M., Bellevue, WA
Cory seemed to be extremely knowledgeable. I had questions for him and he never seemed rushed or irritated, and he was never pushy with what we should be doing about our trees. The same crew member has come out for six treatments over the last two years, I asked him a lot of questions as well, and he seemed very well informed. He was always conscientious about our dogs and the gate. I frequently encourage people to at least get a free consultation on their trees.
Karen O., Seattle, WA
Sterling's knowledge and expertise have made an incredible difference to the health of my trees. The difference is incredible. He is a joy to work with.
Barbara C., Bellevue, WA
Robert and his crew we so wonderful, they took time to explain the process and that he was training a new employee. Robert stayed to be sure everything was being done as planned. He also was helpful in showing the new employee how to make a "perfect" prune. Each person was so professional. Thank you Robert for a great first experience.
Tammy R., Snohomish, WA
The friendly and efficient service that Sandi provides is an important factor in my remaining with Bartlett. It really makes a difference to have Sandi there to inform and answer question.
Lisa K., Seattle, WA
We really appreciate the extra effort Cory and his team made to get our tree sprayed. Despite the fact that they already had a very tight schedule and the weather wasn’t being cooperative, they nevertheless managed to fit us in during an all-important window of time when the tree needed spraying. We continue to be impressed by the deep commitment and caring Cory and his team have for trees. They're the best!
Victoria S., Seattle, WA
I am confident that my trees are in very good hands. I am glad that I called on the Bartlett Tree Experts.
Slavie J., Mill Creek, WA
Cory, our main man, is the best, well informed, great communicator, and responsive. All of my contacts with Bartlett have been positive and I have recommended the company to several neighbors.
Cheryl R., Seattle, WA
It was a pleasure meeting Sterling, he did a great job describing the best way to prune our cherry tree. Any future work needed we will definitely contact Sterling. Our tree looks wonderful.
Rose B., Clyde Hill, WA
The staff was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and very organized. I have about 25 trees and I couldn't believe how efficient they were in pruning them. I will definitely continue with their services.
Amy V., Woodinville, WA
I wanted to let you know how happy I was with Bartlett and their work. Travis and Kyle were very careful to get exactly the look I wanted when they pruned my trees and bushes. I was really impressed with how willing they were to proceed carefully, to continue dialoguing with me, and to keep checking back until things were just right. Their love of trees really showed. They gave the job their all. I would be happy to have them come back in the future.
Victoria S., Seattle, WA
Very professional and friendly. Sterling addressed all our concerns.
Sophie and Michel L., Sammamish, WA
The arborist spent about one hour with me making recommendations about the proposed trimming of the trees and provided a good deal of information regarding tree care.
J. Van B., Normandy Park, WA
Your office staff is always quick to respond to my inquiries and provides great customer service. The service was scheduled for my dogwood tree but she was quick to add the lacebug treatment once it was apparent that this was needed. Thank You!!
C. B., Bellevue
Cory Fitzpatrick has been really great, informative, patient, thoughtful, and responsive to all our questions. We followed his recommendations and our tired hedge has never looked better. Excellent! Couldn't be better!
Jim M., Seattle, WA
Arborist Cory is always quick to respond to my questions about care and maintenance of my trees and landscape. I trust his advice and know that my yard is in good hands.
Carol N., Seattle, WA
Very professional and knowledgeable, they gave great advice on future projects we're considering. Will definitely call you guys again next year!
Joleen S., Kirkland, WA
Really appreciated how quickly Sterling responded when our large pine tree fell over blocking our driveway. He is professional, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. The worker who came out to do the removal did a good job and was also courteous and professional.
Gail A., Bothell
I have been very pleased with every encounter with every person from Bartlett. Sandi was very responsive and got an initial appointment quickly set up, als initiated a follow-up satisfaction-check call. Cory was thorough, courteous, and very helpful with recommendations during our yard walk-through as we determined what needed to be done immediately and a course of action to try to save a "sickly" section of the cedar hedge. I appreciate the way the estimate was written, each planting broken down to make it crystal clear what was going to be done and the cost. The crew arrived promptly and worked very hard, taking great care of all the other shrubs and working around my little challenge of a small koi pond feature backed up to that ginormous cedar hedge. I am very happy with the entire experience.
Melanie F., Edmonds, WA
Superior, across the board, from the first contact with the office to the very end of the project. The entire staff was prompt, knowledgeable, professional, and caring. They did a fantastic job. We couldn't be more thrilled.
Ann S., Seattle, WA
Everyone at Bartlett including receptionist Sandi, Arborist Cory, the guys working the chain saws, to the crew on the ground are courteous, professional, and respectful of our home and landscaping. We know we can trust and rely on them for excellent service.
Carol N., Seattle, WA
Cory Fitzpatrick was exceedingly courteous and helpful during our consultation, and then the three-person crew (the lead's name was Rob) who did the pruning work was also amazingly courteous and professional. We have had a lot of different people (contractors, roofing people, pest control, handymen, asbestos abatement, HVAC, etc.) come to our new house for various projects over the past couple of months and I can say that the folks from Bartlett were the best of all of them in terms of delivering on promises and doing quality work.
We look forward to working with Bartlett again. If the level of service stays this high, we will certainly be customers for years to come.
Kelly T., Seattle, WA
Wow, you have one of the finest collections of customer service-focused staff that I have ever met! Great assistance in evaluating my project, quick and timely scheduling of my work needed, and spot trimming and clean up. I would recommend your services to anyone! Friendly, efficient, and affordable. It doesn't get any better!
Phillip R., Seattle, WA
Bartlett Tree Service is an outstanding example of above and beyond customer service, customer satisfaction, and providing superior service with high professional and knowledgeable individuals who cares about you and your property and the service they provide. T. Baker, Bothell, WA
We really appreciate how focused, thoughtful, precise, and quality-minded Cory Fitzpatrick is. Outstanding! He really listens to our concerns. Yet we trust that his advice ultimately has our trees' best interests at heart. We are super happy to have this partnership with him in caring for our property. V. Scarlett, Seattle, WA
Went great from start to finish. Communication was great. Staff doing the tree work was very conscientious, courteous, skilled, and knew what they were doing. One of the trees was a very large Douglas Fir over the house, and I had great confidence in what they were doing. Price was reasonable. Will definitely use again. Plan to make them my go-to tree company from now on. C. Hsu, Mercer Island
I really appreciate Cory's help with our property. He is professional, honest, and extremely helpful! We have been exceptionally happy with every encounter and person we have communicated with! Fantastic company and I have passed this info along to landscape designer and neighbors! K. Evered, Seattle, WA
Cory and the two guys who did the root invigoration and trimming were helpful and answered all my questions. They were polite, performed the work in a timely fashion, and cleaned up afterwards. Cory did research on phytopthora and got back to me with the best treatment approach. Everyone I spoke with is professional and is sincere about helping my tree become healthier to fight off the phytopthora and bronze birch beetle. I've had bad experiences with other tree companies where they were just wanting work to trim trees and bushes regardless of the health of the trees. L. Strausz, Seattle, WA
Excellent all around; couldn't be more pleased. The firm that previously maintained the trees closed and I interviewed six firms before choosing Bartlett. I am very impressed by their professionalism, service, and fair price. Importantly, they have an office manager and their estimator answers e-mails promptly allowing firm communication. Their work was much better than their predecessor. I have extensive experience with trees, nonetheless they educated me on much I didn't know. I've recommended them to three people, two of whom have already used them and are very satisfied. R. Hyman, Seattle, WA
Staff member is really a nice guy who is knowledgeable, concerned about not only our tree, but the surrounding areas. Would welcome him to treat our tree at any time. J. Nelson, Kirkland, WA
Came out and surveyed/inspected several trees in need of trimming in our yard. Provided a detailed estimate for each tree. Ended up doing some heavy duty pruning on two very tall Douglas Firs on the property per our specifications. Cleanup and removal of debris. Excellent at every level. From making the appointment for an estimate, to having an expert walk the property talk to me about what I wanted, to scheduling the work, and rescheduling due to weather, to having the work done - I was happy at every point. Bartlett Tree Experts is very professional. I had met with other tree service providers prior to meeting with Bartlett, and each time, I felt like I was dealing with a salesperson not a tree expert who could best advise me on what to do with various issues we were having. The estimate Bartlett provided us with was very detailed and segmented out so that we could decide which services we were going to go with and which we might want to omit and complete at a different time. We scheduled work to be done on 2 of our 100+ foot Douglas firs and they did exactly as we discussed. They also checked in with me at several points for feedback, making sure not to cut too much. These guys are concerned about the health of the trees and aesthetics. They know what they're doing. Arrived on time, and left our yard in better shape than when they'd arrived. I will most certainly use them again. J Petrocelli, Kirkland, WA
Terrific. We got quotes from five firms and theirs was very competitive. Their attention to service, attitude, service and clean up were great. They were straightforward about what was and wasn't really necessary. Highly recommended. Ray B., Bellevue, WA
I am very pleased with the job two young guys did for me. They trimmed up a huge fir tree and were in no hurry. They asked me several times to step out onto the street to view the tree from a distance until we all thought it looked balanced and right. Great clean up job too. Karol F., Seattle, WA
Noticed the very top of one of our Douglas Fir trees was dying. Called one arborist who said we should cut it and the neighboring trees down. Contacted Bartlett who came out, took several samples of the dead area as well as of the soil and found they were not getting enough water. What a relief…as we love those trees. I will call them again as I think they love trees as much as I do. Daria S., Seattle, WA
This company has maintained the trees on our property for several years and we couldn't be more pleased. They provide an accurate written estimate and are very professional. We appreciate their knowledge of the type of trees we have and how to prune them to keep them healthy. The crew is polite, efficient and courteous. Judy G., Bellevue, WA
Bartlett Tree Experts accomplished the tree removal work I contracted in a safe, professional manner. The job consisted of removing four 20-foot ornamental hawthorn trees adjacent to a driveway and grinding the stumps; and a technically challenging drop of a 100+ foot tall rotten/dying maple located on a steep slope within 20 feet of my house. From initial contact with the local office, through job inspection and proposal, to executing the removals and cleanup, all the Bartlett staff were communicative, prompt, and professional. The price was fair, the work was completed safely and effectively, and I am very pleased with the outcome. I won't hesitate to use Bartlett Tree Experts again when I need tree service. Robert L., Mercer Island, WA
I have had several tree service companies over the years and this was, no question, the best ever. They topped and trimmed several trees, removed one completely, and pruned others. Everything was done to my satisfaction with the end results better than I expected. Several times during actual work the foreman would check with me to see if things were shaping up the way I wanted and if I wanted anything more. They cleaned up afterwards better than my regular yard service team! Jake, who did the estimate, was there at the start to ensure the crew and foreman knew exactly what was to be done. Everyone was courteous, pleasant, professional, and hardworking. The cost was competitive with other bids and very reasonable considering the work done. Couldn't be more pleased. Dobson, Kirkland, WA
We greatly appreciate Bartlett Tree Experts, as a knowledgeable, straightforward, and dependable company. Jake, a Master Arborist, came out and discussed our trees and the work which was needed. Jake was personable and informative in his evaluation. The estimate came back quickly and was very reasonable. The work was done by five men, all were helpful and courteous, supervised by Robert, an arborist. The entire experience was efficient, well done with safety standards in place, and care to fell the trees without damage to our property, or that of our neighbors. We had the wood removed and the stumps ground. The clean up was amazing and every aspect was done professionally. Due to the enormity of our job in our opinion, it was a relief to see everything handled with such expertise. The billing was also exactly as expected. Thanks to all the men involved. We will call upon you in the future. Fousek, Sammamish, WA
They did a great job trimming tree limbs and thinning out larger branches that were threatening my home. They ended up doing more than we estimated in the original quote and I think they did a fabulous job. They also gave us a neighbor discount for having work done at the same time as our neighbor. Pollack, Bothell WA
Bartlett takes care of a trio of aging trees in our yard; pruning, feeding, pest control, etc. This crew is great - they are true tree people and they care about the health and appearance of trees. They define "worth every penny." Schlosser, Redmond, WA
Great crew, from Sandi in the office to the arborists. Very courteous and professional. And always a job well done. Deb H., Seattle, WA
My trees have never looked better, I'll never use another service again. M. Klein, Seattle, WA
Everyone from the company that we have dealt with has been courteous, friendly, very informative, and helpful. Tamar, Bellevue, WA
Bartlett Tree Experts Seattle, although a smaller office, is very organized with an excellent training program. Employees have outstanding attitudes and superior safety culture. A good example of a Model Tree Company. I highly recommend them for continued TCIA Accreditation status. Randall J. McDonald CTSP – TCIA Accreditation Auditor PA-01
I was extremely impressed with our first service experience. The person at the office who I initially spoke with on the telephone was polite, informative, and helpful. The first appointment with Jake was as scheduled, professional, and informative. The crew came as agreed, did everything well, and all of the members of the crew were extremely courteous, professional, and polite. Based on our first service experience, I am impressed. I do want to mention again that the crew members were extremely professional, focused on their work, and thorough. Craig N, Seattle, WA
