Buried Root Collars

When walking around your property, be sure to check for buried root collars. A buried root collar can cause decay to the base of the tree and make it very unstable. Usually, if there is a buried root collar there is a girdling root which can also cause the roots to choke the tree's cambium layer making it so the tree cannot transport nutrients.

Healthy Soils = Healthy Plants (Fertilization News)

The key to keeping your landscape plants healthy is good soil. When it comes to sustainable treatments to improve your soil, Bartlett is the leader. We can work with you to adjust minor problems or provide large scale soil enrichment to improve the health of your landscape trees and shrubs.

Prepare trees for spring

After winter ends, your trees and shrubs will be working hard to establish spring growth. A soil test in early spring can help determine the precise nutrients needed for that growth, yielding a fuller canopy and vibrant, health foliage.

Winter Stresses on Trees and Shrubs

Heavy snow and ice, as well as frozen soil conditions, can damage cherished trees and shrubs in residential landscapes. Even areas without major snowfall experience high winds and huge fluctuations in temperatures during winter. But homeowners can lessen the adverse effects of winter weather with preventive maintenance.

Structural Pruning

Pruning trees when they are young will guide a strong form. Now is an ideal time to get started. When the leaves are all off, it is easier to see the branch structure of trees. If power companies cut your trees growing near power lines, keep in mind this can create a heavy-sided tree. Failure can result from poor pruning of these trees.

Mike Taylor and Jennifer are extremely courteous and professional. They provide detailed documentation for proposed work.

After completing their work, the crew cleans up so well that you can not tell that they were there, except for the fact that you can see the excellent job that they have done.
Wendy E., Hanover, PA

Extremely friendly and courteous.
Adrian S., York, PA

Bartlett did excellent work, I watched as they did it.
Bob W., York, PA

Mr. Johnson spoke at Gardenwise, and he presented a lot of information about trees and planting that helped me understand much more. Because of his knowledge, experience, and professionalism, we decided to engage Bartlett to prune our trees. Mr. Johnson asked us what we wanted to accomplish, then explained how it might be done. He presented ideas we had never considered, and it sounded good. When he brought the crew, he explained to them exactly what we wanted done, and which branches to cut. The crew did a wonderful job cutting, cleaning up, and explaining what they did. Happily, we actually have some sunlight in needed areas now. We have told people about our great experience with Mr. Johnson and Bartlett, and will be calling on them in the future.
Barbara F., York, PA

Chris and Ethan did a great job and I think the exercise was well worth it. They took care of a number of girdling roots.

Mark and the crew did a great job.

We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the job that Jeremy, Brian, and Mike did today. They worked so well as a team, carefully thinking through what needed to be done before acting to remove the large branch from the roof with no damage to the house. They did a phenomenal clean-up job and left us with a nice pile of tree chop and rows of firewood logs for our friend. Their professionalism and friendliness and your promptness in getting several drafts of the estimate to us ensures that we will recommend your company to friends who need tree work.
Dan M., New Providence, PA

Carl came yesterday and treated our tree. He was very courteous and friendly. Thanks again for the great service!

I have never written to a company about their service, but I have never been more impressed, Brandon and Ethan were so polite, thoughtful of us, and considerate of our property. For being so young, they were incredibly professional in all aspects of their work. I am sure you know already, they are an asset to your company and went above and beyond fulfilling the agreement and promises of our contract.
Dwight J., Dover, PA

Very professional and a pleasure to work with.
Bill K., York, PA

Erik Johnson was very thorough, explaining all that needed to be done. He also did not try to "sell" more than I could afford to have done. He gladly wrote up a second proposal that was more in line with my budget.
Elizabeth L., New Freedom, PA

Sitting on my deck this evening, I am enjoying the much improved view of our trees out front. Your crew did a very nice job.
Albert B., York, PA

Your knowledgeable staff is appreciated. Thank you.
Linda F., York, PA

I am writing to let you know about the recent experiences that we have had with your company. Twice in the last year-and-a-half, storm damage has resulted in the need to have trees and stumps removed from our property. The work that was done certainly met our expectations; however, the service of Mike Taylor exceeded them. In the most recent case, we had requested a very short time frame for having the work completed. We knew that it was unlikely, but because we had an upcoming family event planned at our home, we hoped for the best. Mike told us up front that he couldn't make any promises, but within a few days of his initial estimate, he called to let us know that he was able to accommodate our wishes. Even after our first scheduled appointment was washed out by rain, he made sure that the work was still done by our requested deadline, even getting ersonally involved with the completion of the work. He didn't have to. But he was compelled to do so anyway, and for that we are grateful. I can assure you that we have, and will continue to recommend your company. Richard T., Hanover, PA

You guys are great. I was really happy how your crew worked safely while aloft in the tree (harnesses, hard hats). Erik was a big help in determining how much we could cut from the tree so my house would not be in "danger" from falling branches and what not during storms - thanks! Lawrence B., Glen Rock, PA

Very professional and courteous. We could barely tell they were there when job was finished because of the way the cleaned up work area. Erik is a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely use your service again and recommend to our neighbors. Lisa B., York, PA

All three representatives were thorough and courteous. Erik, the Arborist, was especially responsive and kept me informed. Finally, I really appreciate Erik's suggested solution to the project, i.e, his design and specs were superior to my original design and specs. Sharon T., York, PA

Mike Taylor was very thorough in his assessment of the health of our trees and what was needed to improve them. He was here at the beginning of the job to ensure the crew understood everything that was to be done. The crew was very thorough and let me know what they were going to do. They checked with me before leaving to ensure the job was completed to my satisfaction. Ed P., Dauphin, PA

I would like to thank Erik Johnson for an outstanding job they did in my yard with cutting down my two trees. Erik was very professional from the very beginning and he was very knowledgeable showing me other things that I needed to do to care for my other trees. I'd never go with another company after dealing with Erik. Outstanding Customer Service! Thanks again Bartlett, glad to see you are hiring professionals to work for your company! Keep up that great work Erik! Shawn E., York, PA

Answered all questions. Good service. Ron B., Mechanicsburg, PA

He is wonderful,professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Helped with all issues. As long as Erik is handling things, all my future tree needs will be done by Bartlett Tree Experts. Doris K., York, PA

Mike Taylor was very professional in relating to us what the job involved and what his crews would do. Work crew did a very commendable job in trimming our large tree and cleaning up when finished. James D., Spring Grove, PA

Mike Taylor is outstanding. He has followed my tree issues from start to finish. He has follow up to make certain the trees are as safe and healthy as he and your crew can make them. I have total confidence in Mike's recommendations. Kudos to him! Linda F., Dillsburg, PA

Mr. Taylor was very professional and knowledgeable. Rose J., Dillsburg, PA

Erik Johnson is a competent, courteous young man and is a good representative for Bartlett Tree Experts. I’ve always been well satisfied with the services I have received from Bartlett. Joyce H., York PA

Just a short note to praise the efforts of your York PA team. Eric Johnson is professional, knows his field of work, and makes it his goal to leave the homeowner satisfied. It shows that he enjoys his work. His co-worker Carl will take time to answer my numerous questions while he is trimming, spraying, and feeding my trees. And the same courteous professionalism extends to the office staff as well. Thank you, Bartlett! Deborah H., York, PA

Very informative. Talked to me about the work before it was done, then reviewed it upon completion. George V., Mechanicsburg, PA

Terrific, nice guy, knows his stuff. Mike Taylor has handled at least four jobs for us now. Never had a complaint about him, his work or the crews that did the work. Fred B., Hanover, PA

Mike Taylor is always courteous, professional, and explains things very well. Judy H., Shiremanstown, PA

Everyone's very professional and does a terrific job. Mary C., Spring Grove, PA

We're very thankful you took care of our trees after the storm. Thank you so much for taking care of our trees since we weren't an established customer you could have easily said go to the bottom of the list! Sydney O., York, PA

Mike Taylor was very helpful in getting a crew here to clean up the mess that the storm left. The crew was very courteous and completed the job in a short amount of time. Thank you! Bob S., Hanover, PA

It was all done very good and all the men were very nice. Thank you! Don W., Hanover, PA

Mike Taylor is great and the workers did a wonderful job on the trees! I am very pleased. Jeff W., Mechanicsburg, PA

Our Arborist did an excellent job scoping the work and following up. The crew was early and finished the job in half the allotted time. As always, the job was flawless and clean-up was perfect. Another outstanding Bartlett project! Glenn W., Dover, PA

Trees were trimmed of dead wood and work done around the tree collars. They did a very good job and cleaned up very nicely. [Our arborist] was very good at explaining what was needed and the entire process. Would definitely use Bartlett again. Debbie P., York, PA
