What Our Customers Are Saying About Bud Reeves
Our 50 foot Oak tree was clearly in trouble, most likely due to an irrigation leak that had delivered too much water over a lengthy period of time underneath that tree. After the 2017 fire, we needed to replace the entire irrigation system, and the consultant for that work told us we were probably going to have to take the tree down. It was unimaginable to think of our back yard without that magnificent tree. Instead of taking it down, we called Bud Reeves at Bartlett Tree Experts, and he recommended a course of action that would save the tree. Bartlett has been providing a quarterly service regimen ever since, and this Spring our tree has truly blossomed for the first time in years.
We do not bother with comparative estimates. You get what you pay for, and we certainly did.
Michael E., Sonoma, CA
Bud and his crew have kept our yard beautiful and accessible for years. We feel secure when planning service and happy with the results each time they come.
Loreen S., Napa, CA
Just wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with the trimming job that was done to our Cypress on Saturday. We had low expectations as you advised but we’re pleasantly surprised at the outcome. Thanks for the great work!
Laurie K., Napa, CA
Our experience with Bartlett Tree Experts was satisfying on every level. Bud provided expert advice and most importantly, solutions. Hector and his crew got right to work that morning on time, efficiently completing the job, and cleaning up before the storm hit. Hector monitored my satisfaction periodically to insure they would completed every aspect of the job to order. Very highly recommended.

The tree crew were well trained, efficient, thorough, and cleaned up the trimmings completely. Bud, the estimator, was clear about what he thought needed to be done to rebalance the tree and make the monster better balanced and give better peace of mind to those living close to it.
Chris S., Napa, CA
The entire operation was first class. The crew was thoughtful, friendly, efficient, and courteous. Congratulations and thanks to Bud for overseeing the removal of our Five Redwood trees.
Jim P., Sonoma, CA
Bud Reeves and his staff are my go to arborist. Bud is always helpful and informative about what needs to be done or what can wait. This last visit Jason and Ernesto worked on my trees. They were fabulous, as have been all of the Bartlett crews. I have recommended them to many friends and neighbors. I always tell them if you want the best, call Bud.
Monica W., Sonoma, CA
From the first moment I met with Bud I felt confident about Bartlett. The crew who came to trim my tree was wonderful. They arrived on time, with a smile, and worked hard all day. They communicated well with each other, so I was never concerned the trimming would not go smoothly.
Marlayne , Sonoma, CA
Excellent service all around, from Bud, your arborist to entire cutting crew.
We would definitely use your services again if needed.
Jan S., Napa, CA
Everyone was just great and very informative.
Linda E., Napa, CA
Thank you so much for saving our tree. It is already looking much healthier and fuller. Thanks again for providing such great service. Your crew was very helpful and courteous.
Stacy M., Sonoma, CA
Excellent crew. Efficient, fast, and helpful. The three "J's", Justine, Julian and Jason, were great for the major job. The arborist was super in taking part of the Oak branch down on another day. Bud was very helpful and informative during the process, and made the job stress free for me.
Jean C., Sonoma, CA
Bud, thank you so much for saving our tree. It is already looking much healthier and fuller. Maybe once this pandemic is over and we get back to work, we will have you come out and treat our Redwood tree. It is also looking like it needs a little love. Thanks again for providing such great service, your crew was very helpful and courteous.
Stacey M., Napa, CA
Richard S., Sonoma, CA
Estanislao and Joey from the Sonoma office arrived to cable two large Oak trees near our house. Their work was perfect with the result just as I wanted. Tani made suggestions on how to improve the cabling somewhat and several times checked with me to make sure I was happy. Their professionalism and expertise was obvious in making up the cable ends, climbing, and rigging the set, all done in a safe manner. Tani also suggested a time line for checking the cables and thinning one of trees, which I will do. Those guys are a credit to your company. I sure would not hesitate to call Bartlett for more tree work. Bud Reeves who initially consulted with me was right on time for our appointment and his professional manner was welcome after my dealings with other so-called tree experts. He made good suggestions and had my vision about how to secure these limbs. Nice job on everything.
Brian B., Napa, CA
Be Safe and thanks for your hard work and dedication for your service.
Dominick A., Sonoma, CA
Julien and his partner were phenomenal in their expertise in the removal of our very tall Fir tree. Both worked efficiently and safely and protected our property from any mishaps. We are extremely pleased with Bartlett Tree Experts. We will use you again for tree services.

Courteous, professional, accommodating, good skills, and techniques. A job well done by our crew.
Deborah H., Napa, CA
We had a problem with a large Eucalyptus cluster located in unstable soil that ultimately required removal and stump grinding. Bartlett's local representative, Bud Reeves, provided an expert and timely assessment, plus an actionable plan, which was very well-executed. The service provided was highly professional and characterized by good communication. I would use this team again without hesitation.
Kenneth S., Sonoma, 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.

Bob A., Sonoma, 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
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
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
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
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 felling and trimming. We would highly recommend Bartlett to our friends and family.

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

Julie C., Napa, 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!

Paul G., Yountville, 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.
Leslie R., Napa, CA

Camilla S., Sonoma, 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
