Removal of Red Oak

Here's the crew hard at work doing a tree removal at our local shopping center.

Crabapple Decay

This crabapple tree is showing major decay at the root collar with decay traveling up the stem for several feet.

Identifying hazardous tree conditions

When there is a hanging branch or crack in a tree, it's easy to see that a problem exists. However, some issues are more difficult to detect. Simple solutions can make a big difference. Pruning can lessen branch weight and wind resistance. Cables and brace rods can also be effective in helping to limit branch movement and protect trees.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Wesley DesRoches always does a great job. This time around, I was not home to meet the crew.
Lisa, C., Concord, CA

Thank you Barlett Tree and James Riddle. We have a large, corner lot with multiple mature trees and a professionally landscaped yard in both front and back. We take extreme pride in assuring our property always looks top notch. James met with us and knew about each tree, best time to trim them, and gave us a bid which we thought was reasonable. They put us on the calendar for three weeks out but came the next week as one tree had to be cut back to the Walnut Creek standards as a couple branches had grown to the sidewalk. Today they showed up as promised, four different men on site. Very organized, some did the trimming while others assisted in picking up the trimmings and removing them. Our home was left spotless, the trees were perfectly trimmed, thinned out, and shaped. I am a local realtor and will recommend them to all of my clients and anyone I know. Top notch company, very professional.
Mark L., Walnut Creek, CA

Everything went well with our tree service. Thanks for giving us a fair price with great service. I will keep you in mind for the future.
Pat D. , Walnut Creek, CA

Thank you Nicky. I honestly do not know what I would do without you.
Jan B., Walnut Creek, CA

Bartlett was the last of the four companies we had out for an estimate and James Riddle was who came out from your company. We wanted an estimate for pruning our nine Queen Palms and having another removed. After meeting with the other companies my husband had made a comment to me about buying a laser pointer so that I could use it next time to point at which fronds I wanted removed and trimmed. If they had one to use, It would have taken less time out in the sun with them. Not only was James pleasant and informative, he knew how we wanted the fronds trimmed and which ones removed because the first thing he did was pull out his laser pointer. Most importantly, I wanted a lift used to trim the fronds instead of using spikes to climb the palms. The crew members Ryan and Alberto were very cordial and communicated with us to insure that the job was being done as we wished. I requested that James come out to oversee the job and he did at the beginning as he said he would. We are absolutely pleased with the job and highly recommend them.
Susan, H., Pleasanton, CA

Very knowledgeable and friendly crew. I really appreciate Bartlett's service approach which provides gratis evaluations and appraisals.
Vince, N., Danville, CA

Impressed by the arborist taking the time climbing up among our Oaks and giving suggestions. Crew who did the work seemed experienced and professional. Will definitely use them again.
Ty G., Oakland, CA

James was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to educate me regarding the trees on my property. The tree removal members were on time and polite and left my property tidy. I hired Bartlett based on a neighbors recommendation and would definitely hire them again.
Jacqueline C., Walnut Creek, CA

Wesley was very helpful on his visit and figured out what bugs were infecting our trees. Niki at the office has always been super helpful and cheery.

Work was performed well,and the property was treated with respect and left clean.

Everyone was great. James was extremely helpful in advising us and making sure we felt comfortable with the information provided. He even identified an area that needed attention which we had missed. Great job as far as we can tell.
Doug T., Danville, CA

The arborist and crew did a great job. They arrived in a timely fashion, listened to what my husband and I had to say, and did an excellent job on our two Oak Trees. We are very happy with the service we received.
Laurel C ., Clayton, CA

James was on-time, knowledgeable and did a great job. He removed all the cut branches and left the yard nice and clean.
Rachel K., Danville, CA

Mary G., Antioch, CA

I have already added your service and James' email to my contacts for any future needs. I will certainly refer friends and neighbors without reservation.
Ann B., Martinez, CA

Our young Crepe Myrtle trees were planted bare and stayed bare all winter. I was not sure if they would ever leaf. But after Bartlett's fertilisation, they immediately started to sprout leaves and quite quickly too. I am thrilled to see our little trees looking so healthy and having a great start. Thanks Bartlett.
Wilma D., Antioch, CA

Bartlett always shows up on time and finishes the job well. We really appreciate the expert advise of Arborist James Riddle.
Carol K., Walnut Creek, CA

Everyone was just great to work with. Was amazed at how clean our property was after the crew finished trimming several trees. They did a very professional job. Have been using your company for many years.
Ruth G., Danville CA

Fabulous service, from Wesley, who came to bid on the job, to the office personnel, to the workmen. Wonderful, friendly, cordial and conscientious service. Had three big trees trimmed today. Workmen were punctual, pleasant, and cleaned up all the mess created by the pruning. They were here about five hours for this big job. While they were here Wesley stopped by to make sure everything was going smoothly. I have used other tree companies over the past ten years. This one beats them all in terms of responsiveness, plus the job they did was great. Got the name of this company from a friend, and have now recommended this company to another friend who will be utilizing their service this next month.
Susan A., Benicia, CA

I have been impressed by the professionalism and quality of all work performed to date and appreciate working with this caliber of people. Wesley was thorough at the estimate appointment and seems to have a wealth of background in this field. He has been very nice to work with, efficient, and communicates well. The crew who pruned the trees, while I did not really talk to them, demonstrated safe handling of equipment, both on the ladder and in the trees. They did very nice work on the tedious pruning and left the garden tidy where they had been working. The person that applied the first fertiliser application was very nice also. Had I not returned home during his application, I am sure I would not have known he had been here other than for the door tag and the odor that I smelled when I went outside to check the trees. He was tidy and non-intrusive.
Kimberly K., Benicia, CA

All the staff are attentive, helpful, and positive in the work they carry out. Keep up the good work.
Judy D., Lafayette, CA

Wesley was very knowledgeable and the tree now looks very healthy. I had three other estimates and they all suggested topping the tree and spraying it. Wesley had a soils test performed and shaped the tree nicely, a big difference.
Heidi, C., Lafayette, CA

I have worked with James on several jobs for the Town of Danville and he has always been courteous and responsive to my needs. This most recent job required traffic control along with interaction with the public. During my times on the job site, I observed James and the crew being attentive to the public's needs as well as looking out for all of our safety while the work was being performed.
Jed, J. , Town of Danville, CA

Bartlett returned today to finish removing my Modesto Ash. Alberto and Jaime were awesome. They spent several minutes analyzing the tree on their approach to decapitate it and then went straight to work dropping the Ash. They cleaned up as if they were not even here. They even placed large rubber mates on my lawn and planned each and every branch drop to land on the mates, thus not damaging my lawn. They hit the mates every time, not bad I say with limbs that weighed hundreds of pounds. Need tree service, look no further, Bartlett are the ones.
Jesse A., Concord, CA

Winds in Concord this past Sunday took a toll on my Modesto Ash. The main trunk and four of the large main branches were split and cracked hanging over my house. Every tree service was busy but Bartlett responded fast and I had a representative, Wesley, at my door by eleven. The tree could not be saved and they scheduled to return Monday morning at eight. They were here early and getting started. Although they have to return to finish the main trunk, they resolved the safety and hazard of the tree so at least it is safe to walk around it. They cleaned up as if they were not even here. They did a great job on the control dropping of the major limbs, I watched and was amazed. My business is going out to them from now on. They have the right equipment, they are fast, friendly, and very professional. That is what customers really want these days. Hats off to Wesley and the crew.
Jesse A., Concord, CA

I was very happy with Wesley and his crew and the job they did. My clients were also happy. I have been referring people to you as I was satisfied with the work that was done. I have more clients that I will be contacting you to bid on. Thank you for your professionalism and jobs well done.
Becky M., Benicia, CA

James Riddle was exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful in his proposal; and the tree they "cleaned up' looks great. It makes the whole South side of the house look more attractive. I've already passed your name off to my brother and sister-in-law.
Ray B., Pacheco, CA

The crew was wonderful, they did such a great job. I can not thank James enough.
Sylvia D., Walnut Creek, CA

Another Happy Customer. Bartlett Tree Experts did a wonderful job. I am very pleased.
Mark C., Alameda, CA

James was prompt, professional, and easy to work with. He made the job stress free.
Anissa L., Alamo, CA

We love your commitment to the integrity of our trees, and your crew, the same year after year, love our trees as much as we do.
Melanie W., Oakland, CA

Fabulous experience from beginning to end. James Riddle was awesome, totally knows his stuff, made great recommendations which really worked. The crew was also great and did a super job. Site was left amazingly clean and tidy. Will highly recommend you all.
Chris C., Oakland, CA

James Riddle is very knowledgable about trees. His guidance was invaluable to someone on a budget but also committed to the trees health. He was able to help prioritize my needs and develop a list of next steps. He is very personable and was proactive in resolving potential property line issues to my satisfaction.
Bonny G., Walnut Creek

I was pleased with the professionalism and understanding of what I wanted to achieve.
Linda S., Benicia, CA

James and the crew were punctual and professional. We will definitely call on them again.
Mark, P., San Ramon

James Riddle, our Bartlett arborist has been amazing. We called him at 8:30am on a stormy Sunday to report our large old Modesto Ash had fallen. He was at our house within 30 minutes. They secured the tree, as it was leaning against another large tree, and were back at 7:45 am Monday morning to begin the removal. They finished by noon on Tuesday, and were an amazing crew! I will definitely recommend Bartlett to family and friends when they are in need. Thank you.
Carol K., Walnut Creek

We were quite satisfied with the work performed on our Sycamore tree. Brian and Alberto were thorough and quick considering the size of the tree. The clean-up was better than I thought it would be. Thank you Bartlett Tree Experts for the work performed.
Marcia, M., Concord, CA

The crew was super nice and did a great job on our trees.
Sam F., Pleasant Hill CA

We recently were customers of Bartlett Tree Experts from Pleasant Hill/Concord area, the service was outstanding. They returned phone calls promptly, were on time for appointments, and the fees were reasonable. I would and will recommend this company. Thanks Bartlett!
Peggy S., Pleasant Hill

Nicky, thanks for putting us in Tony's hands, and ditto Tony for bringing in James. It was great to finally meet him. He quoted a very reasonable price, explained the removal step by step, and not long after, Ryan and Joe showed up and put those steps to a beautifully choreographed dance. They work so well together; a regular well-oiled machine. All of your guys are great. They are super safety conscious which is so important, and they do an excellent job every time. As always, the area was left much cleaner than when they arrived.
Tracie C., Hayward CA

Tony De Mola and James Riddle did a very professional job in their initial review of our needs. James carried that forward with a prompt and thorough written proposal for an initial project as well as management of agreed activities to a successful conclusion. It has been a pleasure to work with them as well as the staff and sub-contractor that handled the tree cutting and stump removal.
Charlie K., Walnut Creek CA

James was knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt. Would absolutely recommend him and his crew!
Linda W., Walnut Creek CA

I would highly recommend Bartlett Tree. They arrived on time, courteous, and very professional.
Cheryl P., Alamo CA

I respect and trust my Arborist Representative. We've been doing business for several years. Yes, I'm a tree hugger, but realize how properly shaped trees can add much value to the curb appeal of your property - not to mention sitting under a nice canopy on a hot day.
Cathie A., Martinez CA

Knowledgeable, Experienced, efficient, polite, and open to questions/suggestions. Costs are really reasonable as well. I recommend Bartlett Tree Care for your tree needs.
Bob M., Concord CA

The Bartett staff were very professional and the crew was very knowledgeable and informative about their assigned job. The crew were friendly, approachable , and open to my questions and willingly answered them when asked. They were very professional and highly competent with their work. We were very pleased to see such professionalism and communication amongst the crew and our arborist representative. James Riddle, our representative made my decision to hire your company very easy . James was very receptive to my requests and his professional approach to what was needed for our property was comforting and not over whelming ( as a first time home owner and new to the whole concept of owning trees, it can be overwhelming and confusing). James was very communicative about what the job entailed and what I can do and also be aware of for the future. Bartlett was highly recommended to me by a friend and I have to say I will and already have passed on your companies name and also James name. I will need Bartlett Tree Experts help in the future and will not hesitate to hire your company again. Thanks for a great job!
Kim L., Walnut Creek, CA

Entire crew was helpful, respectful, and courteous. Using Bartlett for another property as well.
Helen S., Danville, CA

I have been working with Tony at Bartlett for years now and can't imagine working with anyone else. My house borders a creek bank with many trees, including two large oaks. His knowledge, suggestions, and communication skills are unparalleled. The work crew always seem to follow his directions well and seem to be skilled and well trained at what they do.
Pat D., Martinez, CA

Morgan Fauvel needs to be rewarded for an excellent job yesterday. My neighbor wanted one of my trees topped and Morgan went out of his way to explain that the tree was okay and that there was a problem with the recent pruning on a tree done on his property. Did an excellent job explaining what was the problem. In the end, my neighbor thanked him. Duty beyond the call of duty. Robert P., Alamo, CA

Tim's very attentive; takes time to explain and answer questions; good customer focus and representative of the firm. Actually, he's the main reason why I've stayed with you over the years as I feel he can take care of whatever comes up at my property. The crew that worked on last job was very good; they did everything exactly how requested and even raked leaves in the backyard. They went above and beyond; much appreciate the good service. Ron, Walnut Creek, CA

Great job by Tony and the crew. This is our second time using Bartlett. We will definitely recommend Bartlett to friends. Thanks. Kevin, Pleasant Hill, CA

Bartlett has been our tree service for 20+ years. Tim is a great addition...knowledgeable and makes his observations clear to a non-tree person. He follows up promptly. The crew has always cleaned well, moved pet water bowls when spraying, and remember to close gates. Terry L., Walnut Creek, CA

Tony DeMola has always been prompt in coming to give estimates and has provided valuable advice that helps care for our trees during these visits. He is very clear about what needs to be done. His crews are efficient and courteous. Joanne S., Concord, CA
