Tick Management

Given the likelihood of encountering ticks, it is important to know that controlling tick populations in your landscape is possible. The first step is assessing your landscape for common habitats like wooded areas, leaf litter and ornamental beds. Based on the assessment, treatments can specifically target at-risk areas.

We love Kevin, he is wonderful, dedicated, and always gives us great advice about caring for our aging trees.
Shannon B., Silver Spring, MD

We have a very small yard around our row house, but we definitely have some trees that need Bartlett's care. So I am glad that the Bartlett crew was able to trim our trees, even though this is a very small project for them. I especially liked that they asked me if they should trim our Holly trees that hangs over our neighbors yard. Our neighbors were away, but I was able to reach them by phone, and got their permission. So I appreciate this opportunity to trim the Holly trees on both sides of our fence.

My neighbor across the street has been singing your praises for years. She also noticed my Oak out front was in trouble and I am so glad she recommended you to me. I thought for sure I was facing the sad decision of having them removed and can't thank you enough for saving my three huge old Arborvitae - their "hair cut" was perfect - even with all the ice this year not a single branch dropped.

The staff was amazing and the work was done to perfection. I am recommending you to a friend, but I know she does not want her name given out. They were prompt and professional. I had been putting off having my huge Fig pruned, but called Bartlett on the recommendation of Homestead Gardens. I was nervous, watched them for around three minutes, realized they knew what they were doing, and went on about my daily business. It is wonderful to know of a company who does hand pruning. Chris Larkin is a joy to work with.
