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

The job was done to my satisfaction. The job site was left neat and clean. The staff was friendly, efficient, and helpful. We were treated courteously by the crew. We would recommend Bartlett to our friends and relatives. Bartlett Tree Experts provided expert tree service. The work was completed in good time and so well I am now ramping up work on the remainder of the yard. I smile every time I look up at the two trees the team trimmed as they look nearly new.
T. C., San Francisco, CA

Thomas D., San Francisco, CA

I highly recommend Bartlett Tree Experts. From the estimate to completion, they were timely and efficient. My trees were pruned artfully, not butchered as a previous company had done. We had one tree removed from storm damage and the crew took it down successfully, cleaned up, and removed all debris. They will be back in September to do some more work on our property.
Holly H., San Francisco, CA

Josh and Christian were great. We are really pleased with the service we received.
Christen S., San Francisco, CA

I am very happy with the removal of the diseased tree in my back garden, and so is my neighbor, as the tree was leaning over into his backyard. It was both unsightly and dangerous, so am very relieved to have it gone.
S. N., San Francisco, CA

The crew was great. They were prompt, efficient, and provided some helpful tips. They cared about not just the job they were doing but about trees.
Alison A., San Francisco, CA

The crew was courteous, I would appreciate a six month return. I feel that their recommendation to return would be helpful.

Thank you very much for being willing to deal with PODS and what they needed for an incident report when they damaged trees in front of our building, and for pruning them to keep them healthy.

I am very happy with the removal of the diseased tree in my back garden, and so is my neighbor, as the tree was leaning over into his backyard. It was both unsightly and dangerous.
S. N., San Francisco, CA

They are the best at what they do, which is a big deal when you have a giant tree looming over your house like I did. I now use them for organic fertilizing and spraying.
Cody H., San Francisco, CA

David Hill is a remarkable Manager for Bartlett. He is very knowledgeable, courteous, and thorough. David also sends workers like Jake who have solid skills and is meticulous in their work.
Leslie Z., San Francisco, CA

Very impressed by the knowledge and professionalism of the arborist and the workers.
Danielle T., San Francisco, CA

Crewmembers were approachable and willing to talk about the project. The job was done in about two hours from the time they arrived, and they left the backyard where the job was neatly raked and cleared of all cuttings.
Neil G., South San Francisco, CA

The crew that came out was fantastic, very clean. They were considerate and very nice. and cleaned up after themselves thoroughly. I showed them pictures of a Bartlett crew trimming my tree ten years before and they thought that was really neat!
Mary Jo D., San Francisco, CA

I called Bartlett Tree Service when we had a bad storm and a River Birch we had planted the previous year was pulled partially out of the ground. My husband wanted to take it down but I really wanted to save it. Bartlett came out and said the tree could be saved with the proper treatment. They had Bobby, a Plant Health Technician, come out within a week or two and he treated the tree. By the time Spring came, the tree was thriving again despite part of the roots being exposed and losing one of the main branch tops. I was so grateful that the tree was saved and you would never know it was damaged. In addition, Bobby treated our Camelia's for T-scale and they have improved tremendously. The company is very good at reminding you when your next treatments are due. They also came out just to see how well the trees were doing. They have wonderful customer service and everyone is very professional, courteous, friendly and on time. I would highly recommend Bartlett Tree Experts.
Bobbi C., San Francisco, CA

The work went great and I am really happy with the outcome. The crew showed up first thing in the morning, prepared for the work, and then we walked through what was going to be done to double check. David came by and I decided to add one additional item that we addressed. The cleanup was complete and thorough. Really great service.
Brian E., San Francisco,CA

I had great satisfaction with the tree removal crew. They arrived on time, were efficient in setting up, and when I returned home the area was immaculate. I was extremely impressed and would heartily recommend Bartlett Tree Experts for such work. I was also pleased with David Hill’s work in surveying the job, and following through on scheduling the appointment.
Linda B., San Francisco, CA

Everything went off without a hitch. David Hill worked with us to find a date and was very patient during several reschedulings that we required. The team of Jo, Michael, and Alex was great! They made every effort to meet our individual needs such as-- protection of existing decorative plants, removing specific tree limbs and bringing back limbs from the neighbors, and letting us keep small branches/needles for compost. They were really positive, pleasant people and great at customer service. We look forward to working with Bartlett next year. We always give Bartlett a very positive review. By the way, I work at University of San Francisco and Bartlett has done very important work for us here as well.
Michael, San Francisco, CA

David Hill and Stuart were great: knowledgeable, courteous, and on-time.
Scott G., San Francisco, CA

Matt is a delight to work with and the crew that was here did a great job, answered all my questions and were very nice.
Anna S., Brisbane, California

David Hill was very helpful in explaining my options and completing work on my five trees.
Merrilee D., San Francisco, CA

Everyone was awesome! Mr. Hill was prompt and courteous. My mother who passed away last year would only allow your company to touch her tree. And now I know why. Because you are the best.
Rebecca L., San Fr

Our representative is David Hill. David is very professional and listened to and answered all our questions regarding the trees on our property. I wasn't here the day they did the pruning, but they did a great job. I am very happy with the service from Bartlett, so much so that I have referred them to my in-laws for their home in Pebble Beach. Bartlett came out and walked through their property and sent a proposal for the work that needs to be done. We are looking forward to Bartlett coming out and getting the trees back in shape, as they are very overgrown.
Diana P., San Francisco, CA

Great team and did the job in a very short time.
Elaine R., San Francisco, CA

Matt and Dr. Zwart were courteous, quite knowledgeable, and very helpful in answering all our questions.
D. Rahe, San Carlos, CA

Matt Carpenter was very helpful in answering my questions. I was disappointed to learn my juniper bush had become a "significant tree" and that I would need to obtain a permit to cut it down. Having made the decision to have it only trimmed, I am very happy with keeping it. Also, the person who did the pruning responded helpfully to my requests. The "tree" looks beautiful and I'm glad to still have it.
Barbara R., San Francisco, CA

I appreciate that everyone, Matt and his workers, are very attentive to my concerns and questions and everyone seems very knowledgeable. My neighbor and I like the job done on the tree.
Diana L., San Francisco, CA

Matt Carpenter is an outstanding professional. When the crew was not available as scheduled, he came and pruned the tree himself. He did an excellent job, the tree is beautiful. Dave Anderson is also fantastic.
Lori L., Belmont, CA

Juan Carrasco has been taking care of our trees for 12 years and his crew has always done an exceptional job maintaining the three very large trees on our San Francisco property. When a storm knocked a limb onto a neighbor's house the crew showed up in under 2 hours to remove the debris. The neighbor was very appreciative as were we.
Christine M., San Francisco

Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable.
Eva C., San Mateo, CA

Matt and the tree removal crew were very professional and their work was performed according to our expectations and their recommendations.
Michael M., Atherton, CA

Juan Carrasco and his crew did an outstanding job. Juan was extremely knowledgeable in his assessment and recommendations, and the crew made a great team in their expert knowledge pruning a large tree, and the manpower hauling debris away efficiently. They were all a pleasure to work with.
Peter M., San Francisco, CA

Having made the decision to have my tree pruned, I am very happy with keeping it. Also, the person who did the pruning responded helpfully to my requests. The tree looks beautiful and I'm glad to still have it. The same requests I made about trimming the strawberry tree were wonderfully responded to and it looks great. I am grateful for your workers fine quality work, as evidenced in the results.
