What Our Customers Are Saying About Michael Smith
You guys came and did a ton of work on several trees in my front and back yard. I was so impressed with not only the work itself, but the fact that the property was totally cleaned up before your crew left. They even cleaned out all of the leaves and branches that fell into my pool.
Tara M., Grapevine, TX
Mike was very helpful and the pruning team as well as the fertiliser and nsecticide team all did a great job. I never worry about how the tree pruning will look when your team is done-they know how to do it properly. Also, thanks to these teams for working in this horrible heat.
Susan H., Colleyville, TX
I can not think of anything that needs changing or improving.
Very courteous, timely, and professional. The Arborist is very knowledgeable.
Gerald W., Grapevine, TX
Emilio, Ernesto, and Oscar were excellent. Very professional, efficient, and left the job site spotless. I will request them by name next time.
Scott S., Grapevine, TX
The crew arrived on time, did excellent work, and picked up when finished. The head of the crew was professional and polite. The crew did more than I realized needed to be done. It looked great when finished. Wish I would have had the work done years ago.
Mindy T., Colleyville, TX
Michael Smith was very professional from start-to-finish and represented Bartlett extremely well. I could not be happier with the work done, and while I do not wish to require felling services in the future, I would definitely reach out to Michael and Bartlett again.

The crews did an outstanding job of removing the huge Oak tree. The stump grinding crew was also impressive. The tree trimmers did a great job. Hopefully the fertilisation will help the trees this year. All the crews were respectful of the property and did a great clean up after their work. I appreciate your recommendations and follow through on the job. We will definitely use Bartlett in the future.

A little pricey, but the job was done well.
James S., Bedford, TX
I made the very best choice in choosing Barlett to service my trees. Michael, our representative, answered all of our questions with patience and clarity on his visit. His crew members who did the work on the trees were spectacular. They were thorough, careful, and their cleanup was excellent. Jeff fertilised the trees efficiently and answered my questions with a smile. I would recommend Bartlett to anyone who needed tree work done. They will be on my future list for needed services. Thank you.
Christine Z., Bedford, TX
Michael is such a nice Arborist and we know we will get consistency with his work. We are so happy to have a good company and representative we can call when needed.
Heather I., Bedford, TX
Our arborist, Michael Smith, was terrific. After discussing the job we had in mind, I had complete confidence in his recommendations. He was very effective in communicating and working with the crew to perform the agreed scope of work. I was very satisfied with the completed job, and plan to use Bartlett again the next time I need tree service.
Todd Onderdonk, Colleyville, TX
All high marks, excellent customer service, and fluent communications without issues. Highly satisfied with estimate, cost, communication, actual service completed, the whole process exceeded expectations. Will be in contact moving forward for all tree trimming needs.
Lillian M., Bedford, TX
Michael Smith was very professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him.
Leslie M., Hurst, TX
I have been using Alpine Tree Service now Bartlett for about four years and the service and work they do is always great. Since I have been using Alpine the arborist has been the same person, Michael Smith. He is very knowledgeable and listens to my concerns.
Monica F., Hurst, TX
Michael Smith was the best. I have used other tree services in the past, and now that will end. I will be using you for all my properties and refer anyone who asks to Bartlett. Michael was so knowledgeable on all plants on my property and helpful even after the crazy freeze we had about what to look out for. I was truly blown away by his level of customer service and knowledge, I can not stress that enough.
Matt M., Grapevine, TX
Our Arborist, Michael Smith, is very knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to work with. The trees on our new lot are very important to us and I feel confident that Bartlett and Michael will take great care of them. The house building process will be stressful, but it is comforting to know that our tree care is in good hands.
Cindy J., Colleyville, TX
I was very nervous about having my multi trunk live Oak trees trimmed. I could not be happier with the service, from first phone call and quote to finished work. The arborist was awesome and our trees look gorgeous. Highly recommend and will use Bartlett again.
Pamela J., Coleyville, TX
Michael was great from the first contact through completion of the project. His team was fast and efficient, completing a huge project in just over a day. They came in, got to work, and cleaned up as they went. What a professional crew and great company. Very happy with their customer service and the work performed. We came to Bartlett by default as the tree company we have dealt with for years was sold to them. Our previous representative promised Bartlett would take good care of us, and they did indeed!. We are extremely happy with the work done by the crew as well as the customer service provided. Thank you for a job well done.
Kim U., Hurst, TX
All folks were professional and performed work in a safety first manner.
Norman and Paula M., Colleyville, TX

I was most impressed with the professional attitude from the crew. The way they left the property was most impressive. Definitely a five star job from start to finish.
Debbie G., Colleyville, TX
Great staff and crew. Mike Smith was great to work with. He understood exactly what needed to be done.
Excellent job. the best pruning we have ever had.
Stuart G., Colleyville, TX
I was a little worried when I saw Bartlett bought Alpine Tree Service. In my experience Alpine was the top tree service in DFW. I am happy to say the quality seems to have remained high. While I use Bartlett for the care the arborist gives my trees, the after job clean up is outstanding and a major reason I am a repeat customer.
Chuck L., Southlake, TX
Michael is always great. He does a great job of educating me and answering all of my questions. I felt good about him coming out to talk with the crew to clarify how and where to cut the trees. The crew was also fantastic. They definitely knew what they were doing and did a beautiful job. Left my place neat and tidy. Very happy with the service and will definitely have you back out when my trees need trimming. Thank you.
Ann C., Euless, TX
Michael was great.
All of the guys did a great job.
Alvin and Evelyn B., Colleyville, TX
Michael and his crew were just fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, courteous, and prompt. I could not be more pleased. Thank you.
Kelley S., Arlington, TX
I have used this company twice once to remove a nightmare tree in my front yard that was messing up water drainage five years ago.
and a few months ago for a tree in the backyard that had died. No job is to small or too large for this company to handle. They were quick to estimate and even quicker the complete the job. I do not generally recommend companies or contractors to anyone, however these guys are just straight up professionals. They anticipated all angles in getting in the backyard the fencing, the dog, everything and executed the job with precision. I would never use anyone else but these guys. In a world where everything is upside down lately these guys are right side up and on the level. Thanks again.
Jason F., Hurst, TX
Michael and his entire crew were excellent, friendly, professional, and genuinely concerned that their job was well done. Chris was especially conscientious and took extra care when removing tree roots so as not to break a backyard drainage pipe in which roots were growing over and under. Been with Alpine Bartlett for years. They have never disappointed, always impressed.
Kristen W., Colleyville, TX
Michael was very nice to work with and explained everything to us. We have had other work done by Alpine and they always do very good work for us.
Lynn G., Bedford, TX

Debby H., Bedford, TX
Michael Smith gave us clear, understandable advice about a problem with one of ur Post Oak trees. A technician then followed up with proper treatment.
David N., Euless, TX
The men were knowledgeable and highly skilled. They did a great job of grooming my very mature Oak tree.Created beautiful canopy allowing sunlight onto lawn.
Mark H., Bedford, TX
I believe Chad was on the crew at my house. He went out of his way to help my mother bring some items into my house. I appreciate his respect for me and my mother. Michael did a good job of communicating with me for the service and came back in person to do some extra trimming to finish up the job.
Scott H., Colleyville, TX
Friendly, knowledgeable, and courteous. Perfect.
Need slightly better communication through email with perhaps automatic responses letting us know you received an email. Apparently your spam filters are a little too aggressive, as I wound up in junk when I replied to a message from you.
Ron B., Southlake, TX
Michael is great.
Gayle W., Bedford, TX
I was very pleased with the work the crew did. Michael was available to answer questions and always answered my phone calls.

Fran K., North Richland Hills, TX

Tommie R., Hurst, TX
We are so impressed with the level of professionalism, care, and expertise from the Southlake, TX team. Our arborist Michael Smith diagnosed the problems with our three year old Maples, Oaks, and Magnolias. Our technician James did an outstanding job on the root excavation, fertiliser, and borer treatment. Our trees now look much healthier and happier. Excellent customer follow up and billing after the completion of the job,. I will be happy to highly recommend Bartlett in the future.
Teresa P., Colleyville, TX
We had fun learning about our trees and getting our questions answered. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We were thankful for and impressed with the job done and the clean state in which our yard was left. Looking forward to our tree stump removal.
Erin V., Euless, TX

James A., Bedford, TX
Everyone I spoke with was very friendly and the crew did a great work with my trees.
Jacob W., Bedford, TX
Michael it is always a pleasure to work with. Your crews are wonderful, and when they leave you can not even tell they have been here because they clean up so well. I have been an Alpine customer for years and will not call anyone else.
Stephen C., Bedford, TX
Edna G., Grapevine, TX
Michael Smith, our arborist and his tree trimming crew were wonderful to work with. Michael is knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. He took the time to explain why they trim trees in certain ways for the health of the tree and safety of everyone involved. He worked with us to lift the canopy on a very large Oak tree in the front yard and trim up a neighbors tree in the backyard, that was hanging over our fence and pool. The men doing the actual tree work were on time, used proper equipment and safety ropes. They removed all the trimmed tree branches and cleaned up the yard and driveway nicely. The work was top notch and we appreciate it.
Kathy S., Grapevine, TX
Great customer service. Thank you.
Kylee B., Bedford, TX
Michael is wonderful and knowledgeable. Prices are higher with Alpine/Bartlett, but we trust them completely with our property and know they will always do a great job.
Sarah R., Grapevine, TX
Michael is very knowledgeable, polite, and courteous. The crew knew what they were doing and worked efficiently, then cleaned up really well. Very pleased with the results.
John G, North Richland Hills, TX
Michael Smith is always very knowledgeable, very courteous, and very reliable.
Diann N., Euless, TX
Michael and his crew were outstanding. We received quotes from two other companies, and honestly, we expected yours to be the highest and just one to compare the others against. We were partially right. After meeting with Michael and hearing his knowledge, passion, and advice, for the trees in our yard, your firm ended up being the one we compared the others against. The others could not compare. Your pricing was great and the results were even better. We could not be more happy about the service we received and we have already recommended Michael and your team to our HOA. Great job, guys.
Chad A., Colleyville, TX
We have been working with Michael for the past eight years and he has done a great job for us. I appreciate his knowledge as an arborist and he is always reliable and professional.
Brent and Becky D., Colleyville, TX
Michael and the gentleman that did my fertiliser for the trees did a great job.
Elliot and Karla S., Grapevine, TX
Bartlett Tree Experts is a very professional and trustworthy company. We have used them in the past and will definitely use them again in the future.Michael was very informative and was here the day of the tree trimming to consult with his team.
Frank B., Grapevine, TX
The crew was very friendly and specifically asked me if everything met my satisfaction before they left. I will also recommend you to our HOA president for the common area properties. Thank you.
Howard F., Colleyville, TX
Michael was extremely helpful.

Michael and the crew were amazing. The crew was very attentive to me when I walked out to see what was going on. They let me know that they were available for any questions I may have. When the job was complete, they did a thorough job of cleaning up. Highly recommend Bartlett. I posted it on our homeowners FB page.
Tommy B., Colleyville,TX
Michael has always been extremely helpful and professional. As soon as I was able to notify Michael that I was ready to have these trees removed he was on it quickly. When I would stop by the house for lunch I spoke to several members of the crew, and they were extremely polite. It was nice to see the crew dressed professional and getting the work done efficiently. Everything was neatly cleaned up and looking good. I was approached by a neighbor who had seen your crew working in my yard and he told me had had contacted Bartlett about some work on his property and he asked me what I thought about your crew. I had nothing but good things to say and was proud to say it. I have truly enjoyed working with Michael.
Tom M., Bedford, TX
Bartlett always does a great professional job guided by aborists. We have a sixty year old Red Oak and we trust our tree care to no one else.

Chris and Alex C., Colleyville, TX
The crew was knowledgeable and courteous. They went beyond what was on the work order and cleaned up several unwanted saplings in the flower bed. For an elder widow that was priceless.
Deborah B., Euless, TX
Mike answered all my questions and the crew performed the trimming just as we discussed. Professional crew performed the work. The truck and shredder were clean and worked perfectly.
Bobby J>, Hurst, TX
Michael and the crew were great.
Jeanne-Marie Q., Arlington, TX
Really enjoyed working with our arborist, Michael Smith. We had our trees fertilised, soil removed from around three trees so that the soil was at the appropriate level for each tree's root crown and trunk, two trees were removed, the rest of the trees on our property were pruned, and we had six stumps ground out. Every time a team performed work in our yard, it was completely cleaned up before they left. Each person knew their job. They were very safety aware both for themselves and our property. The team that felled and pruned our trees really knew what they were doing. Everyone was courteous and respectful of us and our property. They will continue to manage our trees and I plan to hire them to manage trees at my parents' home.
Michele J., Hurst, TX
The staff was cordial, efficient, and knowledgeable. They continue to fulfill customer's requests with consideration and accuracy. I have used Bartlett several time over the years. I have always found them to be very dependable and extremely considerate with the condition in which they leave the serviced site. Should I need further tree or landscaping control I will certainly be in touch.
Pat S., Euless, TX
Very professional and very efficient. They arrived at eight and work was completed by nine. The only item remaining is grinding the stump.
Norman P., North Richland Hills, TX
Michael Smith and the tree crew were friendly, courteous, and efficient. I will use your company for future needs.
John L., Hurst, TX
Outstanding service. Came the same day I called and cut up a fallen tree that afternoon. Given that I was not the only one that had tree damage from the previous night's storm. I was absolutely delighted with the service. Thank you so much.
Gifford E., North Richland Hills, TX
Michael was excellent.
