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.

Nolan was on time and very respectful. He got along with our dogs who insisted upon helping him treat our trees. Walter F., Westhoff, TX

Everyone of the staff from the top on down were totally professional! Not only did they leave the area clean, they returned any object moved to its original location. That's impressive in this day and age. It's truly a pleasure to deal with professional people. I had a professional career and expect it in others, but don't see it much. Thank you! Meta W., Wimberley, TX

Nolan arrived and performed the work as scheduled. It was a long process because of the number of trees and beds that we have. He came to the door to let us know that he was finished with the job and made sure we didn't have any questions about the work that was performed. As usual, I was please and satisfied with the work done by Bartlett. Bob S., San Marcos, TX

Very good staff, and did excellent work. Laura F., San Marcos, TX

Very professional and courteous. Elizabeth B., Wimberley, TX

Just great! Don W., Wimberley, TX

I could not have been more pleased with the tree service that Bartlett provided at my property. Mark Lundy and crew were professional, skilled, thorough, courteous, and hard working.

Highly satisfactory result. Richard K., San Marcos, TX

I greatly appreciate the level of professionalism of Robert Hager and his crew. It's been difficult having to lose so many trees to the Bastrop Complex Fire, but I would not trust anyone else to do the job of removing the dead trees from my property. I've seen other companies leave surrounding properties a mess, literally unrecognizable, following their tree removal practices, having little regard for surrounding vegetation. I know it is difficult to manage such an overwhelming task with so many large pines having to be felled, but Robert and his crew have done a great job listening to my concerns, and I appreciate it. Kevin Y., Bastrop, TX

You have particularly delightful experts working for you. Thanks to all. Sylvia B., Wimberley, TX

Robert Hager is very professional and knowledgeable. Gina O., Cedar Creek, TX

Robert Hager is a fine representative for your company, as is his job foreman, Kent. Robert is the reason I contacted your firm to have my trees properly pruned. I especially liked the fact that all debris and brush was cleaned up and taken away, leaving my yard in a neat and attractive condition. Alberta C., Lockhart, TX

Mark was very helpful and responsive to our needs, keeping us informed of the schedule as weather conditions forced some rescheduling. Horace N., Wimberley, TX
