Summer Tree Threats

Summer is a time of high activity for pests as well as tree diseases caused by fungi and other organisms. Some problems may be simply aesthetic, while others can be a real threat to tree health and vitality. As such, it is important to have an arborist inspect your trees to determine the underlying cause.

Chris is always very professional. He also recognizes me as a client for many years. The three team crew was fantastic. I would like to extend my thanks to them for a job well done.
Carlos S., Capitol Heights, MD

This is our first experience with Bartlett Tree Service. We are fully satisfied that we have engaged the right firm to help us work to ensure the health of our large, forty year old Maple tree in our back yard. Joel was the first Bartlett person to come to our home. We appreciated his willingness to address our many questions throughout our garden areas and, particularly, to describe for us his proposed programme to help our tree thrive. The next person to come was the Bartlett tech who injected fertiliser into the entire area defined by the drip line, other than that area covered by pavers forming our patio. It became clear immediately why the Bartlett treatment could not practically be done by a home owner. The third presence by Bartlett was the pruning crew led by Roberto. Roberto was able to explain to us exactly what he and his crew would do and he took into consideration our preferences at each turn. As Roberto said, his objective was to do the pruning in such a way that the tree benefited and that we could not see any negative consequence of the choice of cuts. We were most impressed by the knowledge and capability of each Bartlett employee to communicate well with us.

Lloyd S., Fort Washington, MD

Respect and courtesy...two aspects of most modern businesses that are missing in their dealings with customers. However, Bartlett's staff and Mike Leibfreid, Bartlett's representative, were the epitome of both of these aspects. It was a pleasure meeting and working with such a fine staff. I will certainly be using their services again when the need arises. Thank you for all you did. Bartlett Tree Experts was recommended to me by another of their customers. The service, quality of work, and pricing were excellent. For me, it is always a sad time when a tree has to be removed and my feelings were treated with respect. I am grateful to everyone at Bartlett Tree Experts.

Every time I interact with someone from your company, I am impressed by how helpful and knowledgeable everyone is. Michael is always extremely patient answering questions and thorough in the way he assesses the trees. Your crew was extremely efficient also, and they got the job done without any issues. The area was spotless when they left and they were extremely nice snd pleasant. Thank you for a job well done.
Margaret B., Potomac, MD

The crew who came out to do the work were exceptional. They went above and beyond to clear everything including roots from some bushes and small trees out of the area, and left everything neat and clean. I was so impressed with their work, especially since I had asked to have a few additional tasks added a couple of days before they arrived. They took care of it all, and left the areas where things were removed ready for planting. I could not ask for better.
Gail R., Greenbelt, MD

This was our second experience with Bartlett and it was outstanding. Everyone we encountered was professional, polite, and made sure no extraneous damage happened. Michael Leibfred was wonderful, he assessed the job and provided us with a fast, detailed estimate. The crew was awesome, no cars were damaged, and the debris was cleaned up. We had two large trees taken down and left it immaculate. We will use Bartlett for any further tree maintenance, and continually recommend them to others.

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.
Vicki B., Seabrook, MD

Riley Smith was very courteous and spent time discussing our concerns and providing helpful advice on going management of several of our plantings. Staff doing the work were very accommodating and easy to work with.

Kevin Clair was knowledgeable and friendly. He came highly recommended from Dave Stadler at Stadler Nurseries. Kevin took the time to walk our property, address serious issues and offer advice on how to best care for our many large hardwood trees.

I will certainly continue to use Bartlett and recommend them to friends.

Carolyn S., Suitland, MD

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.
