What Our Customers Are Saying About Michael Abbott
The gentleman who came to do the fertilizing and the others who came to do the tree trimming were all outstanding. They did a great job, cleaned things perfectly when done, and were courteous, professional, and informative while they were here. They should all be commended for the great job they did. If all your employees are like them, I am confident you will never receive a complaint about your company. Keep up the great work.
Judy W., Charlottesville, VA
Briggs kept in touch with me about his arrival time so I could be sure our dogs would be out of his way. Once here, he was personable, and easy to talk with. He pointed out a pest problem I had not seen so I have scheduled that for attention. We have been Bartlett clients for years and never disappointed.
Harris R., Charlottesville, VA
I believe Mr. Abbott conducted a thorough review of the trees on our property and gave a very useful assessment of the work and projected cost. He also discussed the work that I was asking to be done and explained what and how it would be conducted as well as gave me a fair price for the work involved. I believe he put my interest and needs foremost in his proposal.
Ted H., Charlottesville, VA
Michael was so knowledgeable regarding our tree issues. He was also professional and considerate. He gave us a great plan for helping two trees on our property.
Becky B., Charlottesville, VA
A wonderful staff. I especially admire the work of Hunter who has not only a vision for what he is doing, but handles it like an artist. And of course, Michael Abbot , who is always there when you need him. Thanks for the excellent work.
Donna E., Charlottesville, VA

Kay G., Charlottesville, VA
I am deeply grateful to Michael Abbott for his many years of service. He is knowledgeable, thoughtful, proactive, responsive, and concerned about the health of my trees. He takes the time to explain his vision and the reasons for the services he provides, and I always trust his recommendations. Michael has always provided a qualified and capable crew, most recently Briggs, who is capable and courteous. I look forward to many more years of working with Michael Abbott and am grateful to be a Bartlett Tree Experts client.

I have a great relationship with my arborist representative, Michael Abbott, and always look forward to working with him and your qualified and friendly staff. The trust I have in them is so very valuable as we care for our "pet" trees.
Edith M., Charlotteville, VA
It is a pleasure to work with Michael and the crew. Hunter with the tree take down and Briggs who did the tree fertilisation are a real credit to Bartlett Tree Service.
Jim M., Charlottesville, VA
Michael is great. He knows exactly what needs to be done and does not try to take advantage of his customers. The crew was very friendly.
Eileen T. , Charlottesville, VA
We are always happy to see a Bartlett service man.
Charles V., Charlottesville, VA
Thank you for Bartlett’s immediate response to our downed Elm limb on Monday. We appreciated your inspection visit, especially when I went out to clip some Hellebores seed pods, I was amazed at how careful your folks were to minimize further damage even to many small or recently planted items. We are very grateful for all of the work.
Bobbi and Lewis B. , Charlottesville, VA
So impressed with this company and all of the people we interacted with. Michael was extremely knowledgeable, honest, thorough, and professional. He diagnosed our fungal problem before the samples were taken for analysis, and was correct in his initial assessment regarding our laurels. Will be using Bartlett again in the future.
Carol D., Earlysville, VA
It is always a pleasure to work with Michael Abbott. I was concerned about how many plants might be harmed given the location of the work, I was amazed at how very well all of them came through the day. I have always been impressed by how thorough the cleanup is.
Edith M., Charlottesville, VA
Top level of satisfaction. Perfection in professionalism. Guys were friendly and did a great job cleaning up.
Philip K., Charlottesville, VA
Michael is terrific, knowledgeable, and friendly. The crew who handled the service was also great, well trained, and personable.
Mike S., Charlottesville, VA
Team did a terrific job. The place was a jungle, and they did so well. So happy to see Ray, he was proactive about drenching. Now everything looks so much better.
Jerrie S., Wintergreen, VA
Bartlett could not be more professional, knowledgeable, and friendly.
Libby W., Charlottesville, VA
Very knowledgeable and professional. Trees look great.
Rae S., Charlottesville, VA
I showed the crew man a broken limb on a young maple, just to ask his advice. He immediately turned his attention to the limb, went to his truck for a pole saw, and removed the broken limb as well as trimming some leafy overgrowth that was weighing down other branches. He cleaned it all up, wow, all that and polite too.
Kelly K., Charlottesville, VA
If you want a job done right, these are the men to ask for.
Joan R., Charlottesville, VA
Michael always goes above and beyond and his knowledge is without equal. Ray is such a nice man. He made sure he knew where every boxwood was and was unflustered by the difficult job at hand on such a hot day. Hats off to them both.
Fran B., Charlottesville, VA
Your crew did a terrific job of taking care of our trees. They were friendly and supportive of our needs.
J.V., Charlottesville, VA
I was concerned, in advance, about the work and actually hoped my beau would be the one home. However, I was home and I couldn't be happier that it worked out that way. The crew spoke with me about the plans for the day, our concerns, and requests. Throughout the day, they treated our property and questions with the utmost professionalism. They exhibited great care in accessing the trees. It was evident that the crew was knowledgeable, and cared about their work. I am sure we care about our landscape as some people care about their pets. It couldn't have been easy for your crew to meet our expectations but they exceeded them.
N. P., Charlottesville, VA
I always enjoy talking to Michael Abbott about the tree work we need done. He is very knowledgeable and very helpful in setting priorities and planning for future work.
J.F., Charlottesville, VA
Michael Abbott and his crew were very professional and courteous. Upon arrival at my house all of the crew came to the front door and introduced themselves. This level of professionalism is uncommon and much-appreciated!
K. P., Ivy, VA
I was pleased by how they were able to get to the back of our house in their truck with essentially no damage, for how they cleaned up afterwards, and for their keeping to the appointment time.
