What Our Customers Are Saying About Bill Eck

Courteous and very efficient, totally professional.
Ivan S., Washington, DC

Bill Eck is always helpful, professional, and responsive.
David A., Washington, DC

Bill Eck was one of the reasons I chose your company as he was here a couple of years ago and carefully explained what we needed to do to protect both our house and the huge, beautiful Magnolia Tree that sits quite close to our fifties rambler, hardly strong enough to withstand the weight of these large strong branches or omg the tree tilting. So he oversaw the team trimming branches and installing very strong cables from the top and down as far as needed... We decided to have it checked again this November, certain we would need a lot more work given the new growth. I was happy to be contacted by Bill again and after coming out for a look he wrote me what was needed. He assured me it did not involve more cable as that was as strong as ever and there were only a few branches he felt needed trimming. though post very little risk to our home. What he did suggest was fertilizing the roots and the area around the tree. He could have told me the tree was in danger of falling and needed stronger cables and lots of trimming and I wold have not known the difference. That is the best recommendation for any company I can imagine.
Barbara K., Washington, DC

Bill Eck is my Bartlett Arborist Representative and I could not have a better person overseeing the care of my trees. I have known Bill for years and he is the best.
Lynne F., Washington, DC

Super job. The workman was A-1. A very nice and hardworking service technician. Thanks again.
James R., Washington, DC

Thanks Bill, your crew did an outstanding job, and I appreciate all your help.
Dariush A., Washington, DC

I always find them pleasant and extremely helpful.
Nan S., Washington, DC

Bill Eck is very friendly and knowledgeable, remembers our property and makes recommendations on how to best maintain healthy trees, quick to responds to calls. I am always amazed at how careful the crew is to minimize any evidence of their presence. The last job entailed removing a tree in the midst of a flower bed fronted with tomato plants in tomato cages. There was no damage to the tomatoes which must have involved considerable maneuvering and a great deal of care in removing the tree. The effort was much appreciated, as we were resigned to the fact that the tomatoes could not possible survive in such close proximity to the tree work, that the plants did is a testament to the care your crews take in doing their job. There is never any mess or debris at the worksite, everything is completely cleaned up and returned to original condition.
Robert H., Washington, DC

One of the Bartlett company came to propose some trimming of trees and one of Bartlett company came to spray some trees against insects, both were very friendly and helpful.
Hedwig P., Washington, DC

Very helpful, thanks for keeping an eye on our trees.
Werner S., Washington, DC

Super happy with this company. Responsive and professional. Highly recommend.
Laura H., Washington, DC

Other than saying they did an excellent job trimming my Maple and Crab Apple trees, I can not offer detailed comments about the crew members because I was out of town when they arrived and so I did not meet them. However, I did meet Bill Ek, who came to the house several days earlier to scope out the job, and found him to be both extremely knowledgeable and an all around nice guy.
Michael R., Washington, DC

Bill Eck has been fantastic in creating an advanced tree protection plan for our home renovation and addition near several trees.
Geoffrey D., Washington, DC

Bill Eck is always a pleasure to meet with and walk around my property and discuss work to be done. I always learn something new about my trees, bushes, and garden from talking to him.
Ellen E., Washington, DC

Bill Eck is impressively knowledgeable and at the same time good at explaining what he knows. I learn something about my garden every time he comes, and I feel confident that his recommendations are going to be the best way to proceed.
Susan B., Washington, DC

We have always found Bartlett staff to be courteous, helpful, and thorough. Bill Eck and his crews do an excellent job of explaining what needs to be done and answering questions. Bill is a great educator. Others I have had recent interactions with include Mark for the pruning crew and Larry, who does the treatments for us. Thank you to all of them.

Thank you for a staff who went the extra mile.
Leslie B., Washington, DC

This has been a longtime relationship. The crew of the moment is always courteous and willing to interact with information about the job. Bill Eck is knowledgeable and open to suggestions from the owner's point of view. The most recent job started late in the day, and the crew was pressed to beat the darkness. They pressed on and finished up as the last light failed, but were careful to get the last of the cleanup completed.
Roy H., Washington, DC

Bill Eck is amazing. You always feel your trees are in the most capable hands.
Antonia F., Washington, DC

We appreciate that Bill is practical and informative. We never feel over sold.

Nan S., Washington, DC

Bartlett Tree Service personnel were excellent. From the professional arborist, Bill Eck's advice to the work done by the tree surgeons and climbers to the work done by the tree chemists, everyone was attentive, polite, and caring. We will welcome everyone of them back for our next tree work in March. Outstanding, prompt assessment of needs and then follow up service.
Meg A., Washington, DC

Bill was a pleasure to work with and had amazing encyclopedic knowledge about trees. He knew not only everything about my tree, but also neighboring trees and the city regulations for felling. I could tell right away this was more than a job for him, trees are his life’s work.
Angela S., Washington, DC

First rate.
Jackie D., Washington, DC

Bill was extremely helpful and knowledgeable during our consultation and throughout the process. I was impressed with how quickly the crew was able to do the job. They were efficient and incredibly hard-working. It is an incredibly difficult job working high up in the trees, trimming branches, so hats off to the crew for making it look easy. I will happily recommend Bartlett to friends, colleagues, etc. Of the contractors I've worked with recently, they were by far the best and made things very streamlined and easy. Thank you!
Lily K., Washington, DC

Bill Eck came by quickly to address my issue. When I had a follow up question he responded to my email in less than one day which I appreciated. The technician was courteous and answered all my questions. Will continue to use your service. I want to keep my trees healthy.
John C., Washington, DC

Bill Eck was very friendly, knowledgeable and did not turn me away by using any hard sell tactics. Which I can not tolerate. Larry, the person who did the treatment was also friendly and thorough and very accommodating as my yard is filled with perennials and shrubs everywhere. It must not have been an easy property to treat. But I feel that Larry did an excellent job.
John S., Washington, DC

Bill Eck and his crew have taken very good care of our property for many years, with very successful results. Thank you.

Very professional. Crew left no trace when removing tree branches in flower bed, no damage to any plants, even those right next to tree.
Robert H., Washington, DC

The crew chief, Mark Reddinger, is always helpful and attentive. He would not leave until he borrowed a ladder of mine to clear some tree debris that had fallen on an adjacent roof.
Joy S., Washington, DC

Bill is awesome. He is so knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend Bartlett Tree Experts for any tree work.

Bill Eck is the epitome of exceptional service. For the many years we have worked with him at several of our properties with many matures trees and large shrubs, his experience, recommendations, solutions on various fellings, and issues to responding expeditiously to an emergency when two of our huge mature Hemlocks fell over our fence to a neighbor's house. We are always comforted by his prompt response, attention, and service. I have recommended him to everyone who have inquired about tree service. Can not say enough good things about Bill Eck, Also, Phil is terrific, knowledgeable, and dependable for our various treatments.

Bill Eck has been outstanding as our Bartlett representative. I do not have the names of crew members who have worked here, but all of them, whether doing fertilizing, spraying, or pruning, have been considerate, careful, and highly competent.
D. James B., Washington, DC

Having had a Poplar fall on our house in March, it is imperative to prevent further mishaps such as that.

We liked the fact that he is very familiar with the trees in our particular neighborhood, and extremely knowledgeable in general.

Ellen S., Washington, DC

I was amazed by Bartlett's prompt service after a wind storm took down trees in the area, many on top of houses and cars and in situations far more dire than my own. Bill was able to come by within three hours of my call to look at the tree, and a crew showed up that afternoon, well ahead of when I thought it would be possible. Thank you for making the trauma of losing a beloved tree so much easier to deal with.
