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

Work always done on time and pre-notice always given. Thor is always cooperative and knowledgeable and ready to help. We appreciate our relationship with Bartlett.
Hank S., Penticton, BC

Pete and I wanted you to know how pleased we are with the job your crew did yesterday. They were polite, hard working, and very competent young men. It was a hard decision to take the big Spruce down and we are happy it went so well. The Golden Locust looks great too.
Pete and Linda R., Summerland

Always excellent, professional, skilled, and polite service. This is the second time we have used Bartlett for a big job and we would definitely use them again and recommend them to others.
Lawrence G., Penticton, BC

We left on holiday the morning the crew arrived and we came home to see our trees looking better than they have for years. Our house sitter said the crew was quick and did a great job. She was amazed when she went out to look around to see that the yard looked as if no one had even been there. It was pristine. Thank you Bartlett.
Phyllis M. , Summerland, BC

The two crew members worked fast, efficiently, and did not leave any mess.
Marion D., Penticton, BC

We have Moonglow Junipers as a privacy walls on either side of the little house which are very important to us. Thor and his wonderful polite mannerly team have kept them alive and well whether we are there or not. They were recently hit with a disease but Thor came to their rescue and they have quickly recovered with one treatment.
Marilyn P., Osoyoos, BC

Professional service from start to finish.
Sylvia S. , Osoyoos, BC

The job was done very quickly and professionally. Bartlett really made our yard look so much better. The guys did a really great job, were very personable, and awesome to talk to. They cleaned up so well, I was impressed.
Ron and Shirley G., Penticton, BC

The job was well done. The staff was pleasant to deal with. The tree was trimmed as agreed and is much healthier. Impressed by the knowledge and extra advice regarding some of the other trees on the property.
Linda A. , Penticton, BC

The crew worked as a team and each person knew their job. they came in, set up, and dove into the removals with little wasted time. As a former bush worker it is easy to tell the difference between a person running a saw and a professional running a saw and these fellas were quite professional in their saw handling. Well done guys.
Roy and Marcie-Jean B. , Osoyoos, BC

Everyone was very professional. I was impressed by Thor and his team. I was especially impressed by the crew member who was explaining to the other crew member not only how to prune the roses, but why they were pruned that way. They were quick, professional, knowledgeable, and tidy. Thor knows so much about plants and landscaping. He is now our source for the whole garden.
Harry and Lisa B., Summerland

Exceptional, quality, and friendly service. The guys were in and out in no time and did a great job trimming my Cedars without leaving a trace behind. Very knowledgeable staff.
Tom and Janna R., Penticton, BC

Thor is very knowledgeable and willing to share his expertise and advice. I enjoyed talking to him at the Gardenworks Spring Fling event. He helped me identify a shrub from a photo and suggested plants for my slope. I have had Bartlett staff work on my trees and shrubs for two years. I will recommend them to my friends. They offer customer service with a smile. All the staff are helpful and friendly, but very professional and courteous. They actually asked if I was happy with the work. They did an excellent job and cleaned up thoroughly after themselves. Such a high level of customer service is a rarity these days.
Ken and Lynne F., Peachland

We have very much appreciated the expertise that Thor offers. He seems sincerely interested in maintaining the health of our trees and bushes in a sustainable manner and gives us guidance. We have known Thor for over fifteen years and he has always provided us with great advice.

The best in the business. Staff are always friendly and informative.

Christine H. , Osoyoos, BC

We contacted Bartlett after they were referred to us by our gardening company and the City of Penticton. We needed to have some very tall trees trimmed and some removed. The Bartlett Arborist came to our site, reviewed the trees with us, gave us immediate advice on what they could do and then sent a detailed quote. All of the staff were courteous and efficient. I would definitely use Bartlett again and would recommend them to friends or other companies needing similar work to be completed.
Laurence G. , Penticton, BC

The two young men who came to remove the trees were friendly, professional, and very efficient. I was amazed that they could safely take down our problem trees with such little space and they still left our yard spotless. They worked extremely hard and were finished way sooner than I thought they would be. Bartlett staff all around were very pleasant to deal with. We are so happy with what they have done for us. Will absolutely call again for any future issues and recommend Bartlett to friends.
L. Z., Summerland, BC

I find the staff knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions I have. They are also very friendly. They did a great job cleaning up the yard once they were finished. Thank you for the great job you did.
D. F., Penticton, BC

The communication with all of Bartlett's staff was always very friendly and informative. The crew at the work site was full of enthusiasm. They had good communication among each other and a very safe procedure. We thank you all for a job well done.
Kurt D., Peachland, BC

Thor Clausen and the crew at Bartlett have attended my property approximately five times in the past five months to remove three stumps and attend to the care of my four fruit trees. Each time they would consult with me regarding the purpose of their visit, they were very polite, explained their work then proceeded with the tasks in an efficient manner. Very pleased with the service.
Malcolm B., Summerland, BC

We are so happy with the knowledge and professionalism demonstrated by the arborist.We are happy we stumbled upon you and would recommend you to everyone. Your receptionist is lovely and we will continue our relationship with you.
Barbara W. , Naramata, BC

The crew that came to do the topping was very professional and quite funny. They actually did a fantastic clean up, we could not even tell that they were there. They also brought our garbage can in as it was garbage day when they were here. The job exceeded our expectations.
Dave and Angela P. , Penticton, BC

The crew just left and I could not be happier. Excellent work, and you would not even know they were here. There is not a leaf or twig left anywhere. Very personable guys and terrific result.
Wendy S. , Penticton, BC

Your crew is fantastic. Fully controlled take down of three trees. One crew member we have named monkey. The shear strength, agility, and precision is a thing of beauty to watch. My husband really appreciates the safety measures and communication happening on the job site around safety. Great job.
Georgette G., Peachland, BC

Thor was prompt and informative. We are happy with his advice. The team that arrived to do the work were prompt, polite, and tidy. They were kind and understanding when I expressed my anxiety at the loss of the two trees. They said it was normal and happens a lot. They reassured me we made the right decision. That was the icing on the cake. Professional and caring.
P. and V. W. B., Penticton, BC

Staff are always polite and helpful when dealing on the phone or by email. Thor Clausen has always been very thorough in his inspections and advice, very knowledgeable, and considerate of client situations. The crew members are polite, friendly, and professional. They seem to get along well with each other and are always positive. I have been dealing with Bartlett Tree Experts, mainly with Thor as the main contact, for a number of years. My late husband and I always found the explanations of work and product top notch. I have recommended them to friends without any hesitation. Keep up the great work.
Judy D. , Osoyoos, BC

This is a first class business. professional, courteous, and friendly at all levels. Arborists give a clear and thorough explanation of what they recommend and why. Service was completed efficiently, on time, and is reasonably priced.
Gerry K. , Penticton, BC

I recently had the crew of Josh, Scott, Dan, and Jason remove an almost fifty foot Ponderosa which was growing way too close for comfort near my house. The guys were so friendly and upbeat, but much more than that, they were real professionals. Could not believe the skill each of them displayed as they methodically and safely took that tree down. When they were finished, the garden and the street were so clean, it was hard to tell that they had been here. I highly recommend Bartlett for difficult tree removals. Thanks guys.
Margie C., Penticton, BC

Thor was our first personal contact. Very knowledgeable and informative, while explaining what was wrong with the trees we thought needed to be removed. The crew of three that came to do the tree removal worked competently, safely, and as a team. They explained the plan of action to us then went to work. The faller was amazing.
Gordon C. , Peachland, BC

Everyone has been courteous, knowledgeable, and probably answered some of my questions more than once. Great crew from top to bottom.
Marion B. , Summerland, BC

I appreciate that Dan was comfortable with us observing the work and discussed how and why he was pruning various branches. We not only got our trees pruned but learned more about the trees in general. We are satisfied with our first year of service and look forward to a continuing relationship. Apple tree spraying will be next.
Lynn J. , Penticton, BC

We looked at the trimming you did for us on our hedges and are so pleased with the work. Thank you so much for an excellent job.
Dan and Wendy W. , West Kelowna, BC

All the staff of Bartlett are very professional, accommodating, and do a fantastic job. They are honest, take pride in their work, and it is obvious that the customer comes first, that is a characteristic not always found in many businesses today. Thank you for superior customer service.
Lesley G., Kaleden

Your team is a pleasure to work with. We appreciate the advice we received from Thor about the trees on our property. The crew who removed five large trees and pruned two other trees worked safely and efficiently. They were very careful to avoid damaging our driveway. They consulted with us at appropriate times during the work process and worked effectively as a team.
Lynn J., Naramata, BC

Thor was very professional and a pleasure to work with. The fellows that came to do the work were courteous and professional as well. We were very pleased with their work and would hire your company again if needed in future.
Shane and Vicky S., Penticton, BC

Service was promptly and professionally done. I definitely want to be on your regular list.
Martha D., Summerland, BC

I can not say enough good things about all the staff members I have dealt with, they are friendly, professional, tidy, and knowledgeable. I have had many different services done and was happy with them all. I have recommended Bartlett to others.
Laura S., Penticton, BC

Office staff was friendly, helpful, and patient. Crew was friendly and efficient. Thor's the best!
Heather H., Penticton

We really appreciated the prompt response for an appraisal and quote. Thor was professional and knowledgeable, he taught us about our fruit trees and cedars. The crew who came to complete the prunings were friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. They also patiently answered our numerous questions. I believe we received very good value for the price charged and would highly recommend Bartlett.
Barry & Susan G., Penticton, British Columbia

Dan was here last week to prune the fruit trees, a delightful young man. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him and certainly learned a lot about caring for fruit trees. Of course he did an excellent job, also an excellent teacher. In fact he seemed to enjoy vocalizing what he does, as he is probably normally alone with the trees! He let us do a bit of pruning and then came by and evaluated our work, so we had a really hands on session. We were also very impressed with his meticulous clean.
Colin S., Summerland

I am very satisfied with the Bartlett Arborist and always happy to meet him. The Bartlett crew is always very friendly and they are doing an excellent job. I will be back next year again with my request for service.
Bernie G., Summerland

It is a pleasure to have any of the Bartlett's staff attend to our trees. We especially appreciated all the excellent service we received this past spring with the problem with our maple tree, job well done! The last two young men who came to trim our walnut tree, were wonderful, had it done quickly and cleaned up every thing, we were very pleased with them as well. Most of all, we greatly appreciate you, Thor, for always coming to our rescue and being so patient with us!
Phyllis and Collin B., Summerland, BC

Good crew. A special thanks to Thor for his time spent in advising me on my tree "issues."
Marion B., Summerland, BC

Samantha is a great dispatcher. Loved talking to her.
Chris T., Penticton, BC

We are the landlords of this property and were not on site when the work was done, but we are very happy with the results, and our tenants have told us how impressed they were with the work ethic and consideration of your crew each time they came. We would like to have you come back and do the same thing next year.
Ron and Dixie S., Penticton, BC

Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs in Penticton would like to thank Bartlett Tree Experts for removing trees and branches on our property damaged by the recent heavy snow free of charge. Generous, kind donations like this allow us to direct more funds into our programmes and services for children, youth, and families. Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, Penticton

My husband and I were recently the recipients of Bartlett Services. Although direct sadness with the removal of the trees and stumps, we would like to express our gratitude to the gentleman that visited this site. Removal of four mature maples in a very tight space. The professionalism and the standard and ethics these gentleman used were by far immeasurable. We personally would like to thank you for your expertise, service, knowledge, and efficiency. We would easily recommend this company and skilled workers. Thank you again. Dawn M and Darrell W., Westbank

Jeanette is always concerned with the health of our trees, foremost. But her pruning also takes into consideration the owners, about how we live, and enjoy our privacy. Thank you. Adele J., Kelowna

The rep was very knowledgeable and courteous. Explained in detail what the crew were going to do and that is exactly what took place, we will use your services in the future for sure. Bob B., Okanagan Falls

Work was done quickly, and staff were very professional. Bob S., Summerland

We were so impressed with the thoughtful attention to detail and appreciate the expertise! We look forward to a longstanding partnership. Our yard will be so happy! Brenda L., Kelowna
