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

We have had responsive service from Scott Carothers over a period of several months. Scott determined that additional follow-up testing of our Olive tree could provide additional diagnostic information and he performed additional tests. The additional tests identified the problem to be addressed. We depend on Bartlett to guide us in identifying issues that arise with the health of our trees. Bartlett is our source for the maintenance of our trees.
Ellen M., Cotati, CA

Crew was great. They were very responsive to my varied requests. They used great care to avoid damaging structures and other trees and plants.
Tim F., Sonoma, CA

The workers were very professional.
Bob N., Sonoma, CA

Your crew did a great job. They were courteous and competent. Thank you.
Bob A., Sonoma, CA

I really enjoyed working with Scott. I especially appreciated his taking the time at our initial meeting to walk through out property and advising me on what needed to be done to take care of all the diverse trees we have. The crew itself was very efficient and friendly as well. They also had a good idea for aesthetics when attending to our trees and bushes. I am looking forward to a long term relationship with Bartlett in the future care of our trees.
Robert B., Sebastopol, CA

My kitty, Porter, was stuck at the top of an eighty foot Redwood tree for the past two days. The guys at Bartlett just happened to be at a neighbors and were more than willing to help attempt a rescue. One of the crew members climbed all the way to the top with a carrier backpack on and a can of wet food in hand. Unfortunately, being so on edge, Porter jumped from the top of the tree, hitting a few branches on his way down and then bolted. Scott called me afterwards to check in and give me advice on potential injuries he had seen and it was so nice to see how caring he was. Porter ended up coming home shortly after and miraculously sustained no injuries. I am so grateful to this amazing crew. I am not sure what would have happened if we waited any longer. I felt they really did care about getting him home safely. Thank you for helping bring my kitty home. If anyone needs any tree trimming, I highly recommend Bartlett Tree Experts.
Mila O., Petaluma, CA

Your guys did an amazing job. They so helpful and caring with my feelings on how the Oaks should be trimmed. You have a couple of great workers there and you should praise and acknowledge them for their performance on my trees.
Lynda, G., Napa, CA.

Scott Carothers does a great job.
Deidre H., Petaluma, CA

I was greeted professionally by Leslie when I called. She was diligent in promptly scheduling me with an arborist for an evaluation. Additionally, she heard me when I said I had a very tight personal schedule and communicated this to the arborist. Due to that tight schedule, I was very appreciative of Bud arriving early for our initial appointment. Bud gave me a very thorough description of the work that was needed and I felt immediately comfortable that I was dealing with a pro. The appointment for the work was within two weeks and the crew arrived and got right to work as planned. I am very happy with my experience with Bud and Leslie and will recommend them to friends and family.
Tom M., Sonoma, CA

Scott Caruthers continues to do an outstanding job for Bartlett Tree Service. He is our go to person when we need tree trimming or fertiliser needs. Your yard crews have always been efficient and professional, this time is no different.
Dennis S. , Santa Rosa, CA

Scott was great. Took time to walk our property, hear our concerns , make suggestions, and bid the job professionally. Best tree work we have ever had done.
Vaughn M., Kenwood, CA

Nice friendly service.
Bob N., Windsor, CA

The crewmembers were efficient, pleasant, and cleaned up behind them selves. They were also accommodating to some special requests. Jason, clearly loves his job, and it shows. I look forward to hearing from bud shortly so that we can get some more trees cut.
Judy B., Sonoma, CA

My pruner was here on time, went right to work, and the Apple trees are beautiful.
Donna T., Sebastopol, CA

From start to finish, Bartlett staff was helpful, delivered services as promised, very professional, and skilled, they are my go to company for tree services.
Laurie W., Napa, CA.

The staff could not have been nicer, always asking for my opinion and checking with me afterwards to be sure they had done the work to my satisfaction. They work very safely, with ropes and harnesses, and did not damage any surrounding foliage or structures. They cleaned up and were gone faster than I expected.
Eran G., Sonoma, CA

The tree seems to be responding positively to the treatment. It has what I assume are blossoms and is sprouting new leaves at each of those sites. It seems to be a good sign. I am much encouraged.
Betty F., Napa, CA

I just wanted to let you know what a great job the men did today at our home. They worked hard and efficiently to get the job done quickly and the property looks great.
Robert B., Sonoma, CA

They were hard working. Scott kept us up to date.
Michael G., Glen Ellen, CA

Staff was very courteous and capable. Would definitely use Bartlett again.
Beverly B., Glen Ellen, CA

Everything went great. Your crew was even accommodating to my neighbor. When the time comes to cut down my Walnut, I will give you a call.
Seth T., Sonoma, CA

Bud Reeves has been our Bartlett Rep for many years. We are always pleased with his attention to detail and making sure that the staff knows what we want. Since they are arborists and trim with the trees health in mind we know our trees will be healthy.
Carol N. , Napa, CA

We are very happy with the work done on our property. Your entire staff, Bud and the crew were professional and a pleasure to work with. We were very pleased with the clean-up performed after the tree removal and trimming. We would highly recommend Bartlett to our friends and family.
Gary B., Sonoma, CA

Your crew did a great job.
Nancy L., Sonoma, CA

Everything went fine, perfect job, done quickly, and expertly by two of your men.
Phil J., Sonoma, CA

We are very happy with the work. Bartlett got 100% of what we needed done with no mishaps. They chipped what they could, and my crew cleaned up all the small stuff, that is a good system going forward.
Drew I. , St. Helena, CA

I am very pleased with the work at Sunny Slope Vineyard. My contact with Scott was great, his help and prompt response was very appreciated. He kept in contact and informed me of progress, I will call him for any tree work I need.
Etta A., Glen Ellen, CA

I could not be more impressed with Bartlett. Bud was so professional and prompt. He told me his guys would come out to cut down the tree on a day that was expected to rain heavily. He warned me that if it rained too hard they may not come. It ended up being a day of horrendous rain and they still came out. I felt bad for the guys. Bud got everything done on time and very clean. Could not be more impressed and would use Bartlett for all future work.
Sandy C., Sonoma, CA

We have used Bartlett for eighteen years and have worked with Bud for many years. Our Oak Tree spreads out over three properties. Clean up can be very challenging. The crew did an exceptional job.
Rita B., Napa, CA

From Leslie in the office, to Bud Reeves the Arborist, to the fellows who came to prune, to the most recent employee who came to fertilize our numerous Carolina Laurels, we have been thoroughly impressed by the courtesy, professionalism, and skill of everyone at Bartlett Tree Experts. It is a pleasure to unconditionally recommend the Sonoma Bartlett Tree Experts to anyone who wants true expertise in caring for their trees and shrubs. This is our forever tree company.
Debbie M., Napa, CA

All of my experiences with Bartlett have been excellent.
David G., Santa Rosa, CA

It was a pleasure to work with Scott and a company which did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it, and have the crew do it in a very professional manner.
Mel F., Petaluma, CA

The crew who came out were very competent and really knew what they were doing.
Franklin E., Napa, CA

Courteous and friendly office staff as well as was Bud and his crew. Arrived on time and cleaned up all debris. Thanks.
Norma N., Napa, CA

Thank you for your expertise and for sending Jason and Ryan today. They did an excellent job on every tree and I appreciated their attention and skill. These trees have been pruned at least five times over the last eighteen years, though I am not an expert, I could tell they were not cut with precision, they were pruned for the purpose of becoming shorter. Clearly that is not enough. Also, I was not aware that the redwoods were any kind of threat and I am grateful you gave me the alert. Please share my appreciation with Jason and Ryan. If ever I am asked for a referral, I shall share, with confidence, Bartlett Tree Service.
Lynn W., Sonoma, CA

Scott Carothers is very knowledgable, professional, and helpful.
Joann F., Santa Rosa, CA

Bud was great and the crew who did the work had very impressive skill.
John K., Napa, CA

The service and workmanship was superb.
Gila F., Napa, CA

The trees are looking really good. We appreciate your ongoing assistance in taking care of them.
Jim H., Sonoma, CA

Scott Carothers was quite thorough with how the trees needed to be trimmed, although I was a bit lost on the professional wording he used. Ramon cleared that up when he came to do the job. What a change from the company I had do work on the same tree two years earlier. The guys really took pride in doing a good job, and going that extra mile. I will definitely call them again to do work on the other trees on the property.
Mark B., Sonoma County, CA

Everything was perfect, from my first call to the office, visit to check out the work needed on my huge Eucalyptus trees and the workers who trimmed and cut the trees. Friendly, professional, caring, ,informative, and knowledgeable. A great group of people to do business with.
Joyce B., Sonoma, CA

Thank you for sending your crew to prune our special tree. Rick and Ramon did an outstanding job, and the tree looks beautiful. We can now prepare to submit it to Parks and Recreation for consideration as a Significant Tree.
Gloria B., Sonoma, CA

I trust you, Bud and and look forward to seeing you on Apriil 26th, I also have two neighbors who will be taliking to you about work.
Dan G., Sonoma, CA

Hi Bud, Bud the tree that Bartlett pruned yesterday, looks awesome. Thanks so much for getting it completed in such a timely manner. Looking forward to working with you in the future.
Julie C., Napa, CA

Scott was good to work with and had the crew complete the job fast and on time.
Greg F., Petaluma, CA

Really appreciate Bud's customer service. He always responds quickly and Bartlett is lucky to have him on their staff. Trees always look fabulous when they do the work. We have tried a few other companies and they are always lacking, will not be trying any other service in the future. Thank you!
Carol N. , Napa, CA

Your guys were great. They did a fabulous job. The tree was huge, right next to the house and a hillside. It was raining cats and dogs and they had it done before noon.
Beth M., Santa Rosa, CA

The crew always does an excellent job. They are always courteous and respectful. The trees and property have benefited from their work here the last few years. Bud is knowledgeable and has provided invaluable input for the care of our trees.

Marcia L., Sonoma, CA

The Sonoma County Master Gardeners really enjoyed the pruning demonstration. We all learned a lot and appreciate your talk (at the Luther Burbank Center, Santa Rosa October 21, 2015).
Kate H., Santa Rosa, CA

Since you did such a great job on Vineyard View around my burnt down house, I wondered if you did any work in Tiburon where I am currently living. I have a couple deodar cedar that need removing and a couple oaks that need pruning, but possibly removing.
Alice A., Yountville, CA

The two young men who trimmed my trees were professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. They did an excellent job on my trees and the clean up was perfect. They even dealt pleasantly with my grumpy neighbor.

Mel D., Santa Rosa, CA

I'm a little crazed about maintaining/saving my trees and Bud Reeves has been very helpful in explaining the treatments necessary. Tony and Chad recently pruned two of my trees and were very patient with me while I watched their every move! They were both very personable and pleasant.
Suzi K., Sonoma, CA

Good job, Scott! As far as I can see, I'm happy with the finished work.
Mike F., Petaluma, CA

Much thanks to all involved! Mark T., Sonoma, CA

Could not be happier with the job and how well I was treated. David P., Napa, CA

Bud and his team are always on time, courteous, professional, and operate with safety first mentality. This is the second time I have used Bartlett and the service is impeccable and i will use them again. Leif L. Napa, CA

Scott made more than one trip to our property and offered recommendations before we ever hired him for a job. Once we decided to follow his recommendations, everything went as agreed. We gained confidence with each step, so a good relationship was established. Daniel B., Petaluma, CA

Excellent! William and Carol E., Santa Rosa, CA

My neighbors have been commenting on the trimming and are VERY happy they no longer have to walk AROUND the tree (into the street), but can continue down the sidewalk! You've helped us break into our new neighborhood on a positive note! Thanks! John P. & Linda M., Napa, CA

Please pass the word onto the crew that trimmed our property - they did a wonderful job! I was very happy with the manner in which they thinned the tree, without any real damage to the crown, its shape, and its health. Likewise, they took our “bush” and turned it back into a tree! My thanks to Bud, as well. John P., Napa, CA

Scott did a great job coordinating the work and came by for a post-work inspection and called the crew back for a few minor things that were overlooked (that I would not have probably noticed anyway). Very pleased overall. Bill, Petaluma, CA
