Geoff F., North Potomac, MD
Over many years, I have consistently received top notch advice and service from Kevin Clair. Thankfully he was recommended to me years ago. With his outstanding efforts, I have maintained the health and beauty of my large shade trees, understory trees, and shrubs. He not only sees and diagnoses the health of these plants, he has the best eye for aesthetic pruning, and he has advised me on the right plant purchases appropriate for my land. The crews are always excellent and easy to work with.

Lisa W., Takoma Park, MD
The anthracnose treatments for our Dogwood trees have made a huge difference in how they are looking. Their branches are not dying and look so much healthier now. I wish we had started the treatments years ago.
David M., Silver Spring, MD
Kevin Clair was knowledgeable and friendly. He came highly recommended from Dave Stadler at Stadler Nurseries. Kevin took the time to walk our property, address serious issues and offer advice on how to best care for our many large hardwood trees. I greatly appreciate him traveling from another Bartlett office to visit our property. The crew was friendly and got the job done in a timely manner. I will certainly continue to use Bartlett and recommend them to friends.
Lisa Y., Haymarket, VA
I very much appreciated Kevin Clair's efforts to schedule the work sooner than planned in light of our concern about a large dead branch on our enormous Weeping Cherry. The crew were courteous, hard-working and neat. thank you.
Jennifer C., Chevy Chase, MD
Everyone who has come to my home from Bartlett has been courteous and knowledgeable starting with Kevin and including the people who have done the work on my trees.
Cindy L., Laytonsville, MD
A very large limb fell in our back yard, and just missed doing significant damage to our landscaping. Kevin Clair quickly worked us into his busy schedule and visited to assess the situation. He also checked our other trees in both front and back to identify any risks and any actions we should take to maintain tree health. He gave us an estimate the same day. A crew came within two weeks to remove the fallen limb and prune the remaining stub. They were very carefully removed all the debris, with no damage to the landscaping. The site is clean, you would not know that anything had fallen. They also selectively reduced limbs on two other trees to provide more clearance from electrical wires and avoid over pruning by Pepco. A natural organic fertiliser was applied on a separate visit to maintain the heath of two trees.
Kevin and his crews have been taking care of our trees for years and we were always very pleased with their work.
Roland W., Takoma Park, MD
Crew members and representatives are always pleasant and professional. I appreciate advanced notice when crew members are on our property.

Our Dogwood trees have not looked this good in many years. Last year we had Bartlett spray them for the first time and they were gorgeous. We have not seen so many berry clusters on the Dogwoods in a long time. We also had them prune and shape our other trees. They did a fantastic job.
