Wesley Rivers, Arborist Representative at Bartlett Tree Experts, works out of our Southlake, TX office.
More about Wesley Rivers
Growing up in West Tennessee, Wesley developed a love for the outdoors, especially by spending time in the woods.
Moving to Texas after high school opened some new doors as he began his journey towards arboriculture. He graduated in 2005 from Stephen F. Austin University with a Bachelor's Degree in Urban Forestry.
After graduation he spent three months as a Tree and Shrub Specialist at Trugreen before accepting a position as a Garden Manager and Plant Health Technician at Clint Horticulture.
Wesley acquired his ISA Certification in 2009 and became specialised in all facets of plant healthcare, and various technical pruning strategies. While this time was very valuable, he longed to return to tree work and joined Alpine Tree Service, as Director of Plant Health Care in 2014.
Wesley is proud to join Bartlett Tree Experts following the acquisition of Alpine and brings a positive attitude and desire to do only the very best tree work to his job every day.
What Our Customers Are Saying About Wesley Rivers
Wesley went above and beyond in calling Oncor on our behalf and helping us get through to management to get a trim scheduled with them. When we finally got that done, his crew was here immediately to do the work, and they got rid of all the mess that Oncor left behind too.
Kristen M., Grapevine, TX
All went well, happy with the job, thanks.
Tony D., Southlake, TX
Wes and his three-man crew did another awesome job at my home. Bartlett is fortunate to have these former Alpine Tree Service people. They are so well-coordinated that I love to watch them work. I even took movies when they took down my giant Oak tree in the back yard.
My daughter also depends on Wes to take care of her many trees in Hidden Lake subdivision.
Virginia L., Grapevine, TX
Wes was reliable and responsive. The crew did a great job with cleanup.
D'Ray M., Grapevine, TX
All personnel were courteous and prompt. Arborist, W. Rivers, was knowledgeable and very helpful in explaining issues and what corrective action he recommended.
Sherman P., Southlake, TX
This was my first experience with Bartlett Tree Experts and I am so pleased I found them. Upon their arrival, I was introduced to Tree Experts, Emilio, Joe and Jose. These people have been well trained and they knew how to prune my trees with precision and discernment. My trees look gorgeous and I know they will regenerate with healthy balance and shape. Early on, Emilio offered me the option to move my car from the garage to the street in case I needed it since debris would block my driveway as they worked. The communication with these people was excellent and they were always very courteous. Upon completion, my yard was tidier than when they first arrived. Jeff arrived to grind tree stumps for a couple of trees I had removed. It was late in the day and I know he must have been tired. He never showed it, though. Instead, he made the task look easy, competed it masterfully and was pleasant with me the entire time. It is apparent that Jeff appreciates his work with Bartlett. Wesley Rivers is responsible for selling Bartlett Tree Services to me and, for the first time, I understand proper tree care and pruning. He is extremely knowledgeable and answered my every question and concern. I have Bartlett Tree Services scheduled this coming spring to eliminate pests that have been damaging some of my trees. I look so forward to seeing how beautiful it all looks next summer. I would encourage any homeowner to invite Bartlett Tree Services for a visit and free estimate. It will be well worth your time and money if you choose to have them serve you.
Vicki H., Grapevine, TX
Wes was awesome. Extremely knowledgeable specifically about our neighborhood. His guidance was very much appreciated plus we received a quote in a very timely manner, within three days. We and the service person for the growth regulator were both on time, very professional and courteous, excellent customer service. Thanks.
John and Fay K., Southlake, TX
Wesley is very responsive to our requests. His recommendations have improved our trees. The crew has always shown up when they said they would. Clean up was good.
Gloria C., Grapevine, TX
Wesley was very easy to work with. The crew members who did the actual work worked hard while they were here and did a great job. It was our third time to use Alpine/Bartlett, and we plan to use them again when the need arises.
Eric and Nancy P., Grapevine, TX
Wes has been our rep for many seasons and is always professional and courteous and has resolved any questions or concerns we have had. We highly recommend him.

Team did a nice job from quote to tree work done. Nice job.
Richard S., Southlake, TX
Wes is always available to answer any questions. He is thorough in his analyses and has his crews here when he says they will be here. I would not want anyone else handling my account.
Bob C., Keller, TX
Everyone who came that day were very courteous and helpful. Your company handled my felling in a very professional manor thank you.

We have worked with Wesley for years. His knowledge and work ethic has been instrumental in helping us keep our trees happy and healthy which has not been an easy job. We appreciate and value him very much.
Heather A., Southlake, TX
Great job by everyone. I highly recommend Bartlett.
Dale S., Southlake, TX
Wesley was the consummate professional.
Chris M., Grapevine, TX
Wesley Rivers is to be commended on his focus to customer satisfaction. We will definitely be in contact with him for future needs. I have his card and will gladly refer prospects to him. The work crew did an excellent job removing and cutting the tree. The individual that removed the stump was just as great. I hated having to let go of that beautiful Oak, but for the safety and health of our other trees it had to be removed.
Margie L., Grapevine, TX
I appreciate how knowledgeable and helpful Wesley has always been. He has been such a help keeping my trees healthy.
Jamie L., Bedford, TX
We always appreciate Wes's knowledge and advice about our trees. I was really impressed by how clean our yard was after our recent tree trimming service. There was not one single leaf left laying in our yard. Thank you for upholding a high standard of quality from your crew.
Eric T., Grapevine, TX
Wesley was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Crew was efficient and did a great job of cleaning up.
I only wish I had let them prune a bit more.
JR. R., Trophy Club, TX
Wesley did a great job explaining the issues with the plants and trees.
Renee H., Colleyville, TX
Everyone that we have been in contact with us has been excellent. Very personable and knowledgeable. Wes has helped us to understand more about our yard, trees, and plants. We are the envy of our small community.
Dale T., Colleyville, TX
Every one was very nice and knew their job. The two stumps in the front parkway have yet to be ground. The crew who did the removal said another crew would do that. Waiting.
Jean D., Bedford, TX
Wesley Rivers is so knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. I really trust him. That is the main reason I use Bartlett.
Mitzi S., Colleyville, TX
All knowledgeable and professional. Crew listened to what we wanted, then carefully did what we requested. Will use Bartlett again.
Peggy M., Grapevine, TX
Service was professional. Will not know success of treatment for some time.
Tay L., Southlake, TX
Bartlett completed tree trimming and felling safety from our property. Branches were overgrown, too close to the roof and yard. Two large oaks were removed to make way for a pool. The job was finished expertly and all brush removed and property thoroughly cleaned. Nice job. Thanks. Workers were courteous and polite. The task was performed within the estimated time and cost. Good service. Thanks.
Russell C., North Richland Hills, TX
Wesley Rivers is a pleasure to work with. He is prompt, professional, knowledgeable, and creative. An asset to your firm. Your work crews are well-trained, properly equipped, safety-minded, efficient, and extremely courteous and cheerful. It is clear Bartlett takes good care of its people.
Bryan H., Southlake, TX
Wesley was very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. The crew was courteous and cleaned up debris after they finished.
It is disappointing that Bartlett did not retain Alpine’s loyalty appreciation policy for its senior citizens when they bought the company. The 10% discount helped my budget and let me know my business was valued.
Helen C., Bedford, TX
We had the pleasure of working with Wesley Rivers. Wesley inspected our property, thoroughly reviewed the findings and remedies and scheduled all of the work professionally and timely. He is extremely knowledgeable and a very positive extension of Bartlett.
Jack R., Southlake, TX
Wesley is very knowledgeable and he has done so much to improve the health of the trees on our property (including saving an ailing Post Oak). This time he found scale on our Crape Myrtle and spider mites on our Pond Cypress.These trees mean a lot to us and Wesley knows that. I highly recommend him and his work.
Tammi G., Southlake, TX
John H., Grapevine, TX
Wesley is Great.
Carl U., Grapevine, TX
Ahmed E., Southlake, TX
This year, as in past years, working with Wes, has been a very good experience. When he came over for the estimate we walked to each of the ten trees that needed trimming. Wes, writes up detailed notes that he used to walk the crew supervisor and me back around to all ten trees the day of the trimming. He listens to me requests and makes educated suggestions.
Our yard looks and feels much better and I know the work will keep the trees healthy.
Doug L, Colleyville, TX
I have been very satisfied from the first meeting through what is now our first of several upcoming services. Wes came out and we had a long detailed discussion about what the issues are with our Post Oak trees and how best to take care of them. Wes laid out an action plan and was very open to how we could schedule it over time to accomplish the primary goals and make the whole project more affordable.
Wes was recommended to me by a local arborist because the total quantity of work to be done was more than he could do. The service plan Wes laid out is exactly what I needed and we are at the beginning of a long relationship with Wes and Bartlett to take care of two very old Post Oak trees on our property. I would highly recommend Wes and his folks.
Scott C., Keller, TX
This is the second time we have used Wesley’s teams to complete felling services and have been very satisfied.
Allison T., Keller, TX
Wesley and his team are amazing. We have a number of mature trees on our property and view them as our strategic partners helping to preserve and maximize our property value.
Shannon I., Keller, TX
Wesley was very knowledgeable and thorough when diagnosing our landscape issues. We look forward to seeing healthier trees in the future and are hopeful we can have them thriving soon.
Julie W., Southlake, TX
The person who came out to grind my stump was excellent, very professional and did a great job.
Pippa L., Southlake, TX
Excellent planning, trimming, and removal. Professional workers and supervision. Highly recommend.
Jim D., Southlake, TX
Very professional and courteous. Always had an answer for my multitude of questions regarding my large Ash trees. Great service.
Lyle W., Southlake, TX
Wesley and the guys who did the work of grinding the tree in our yard were very professional and did a good job. There were a few areas that were missed, but Wesley promptly responded and had someone come back out to take care of them.
Judy Q., Colleyville, TX
Everyone I have dealt with has been so nice and professional. James, who treats our trees, is great, willing to take his time to explain what he is doing and what to expect. Great company to work with. Our first interaction with Bartlett was with Wesley Rivers. He is great, really knows his stuff. And we appreciated his recommendations.
Jeannie B., Grapevine, TX
Wes Rivers is always knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. Always impressed and grateful for his help.
Deanna D., Southlake, TX
Wesley was very knowledgeable about the needs of our trees. The guys who trimmed the trees left the premises neater the it was when they started. Our back lot looks fantastic now.
Mike and Terry C., Grapevine, TX
Wes is great. He has helped us on previous projects as well. The two men who came to do the trimming work were very courteous. They did a great job.
Debbie Edgren, Grapevine, TX
Wesley has been the most helpful person. He always answers my questions and he knows everything about my trees. He is probably the reason I stay with Bartlett.
Jacci M., Keller, TX
Wesley Rivers is awesome. He is so knowledgeable, pleasant to talk to, easy to reach, services are delivered in a timely manner.
Jonni F., Southlake, TX
Everything was very professional and the crew did a great job.
Joanne I., Southlake, TX
Everybody was really great. The job was to remove a tree on top of a flagstone retaining wall. I wish somebody including myself had thought to put a bag of mulch or something on the top of the wall where the tree trunk would hit to avoid chipping the wall. Just an idea for future use.
Barbara N., Grapevine, TX
I have had experience with Arborists previously in owning fourteen homes and several commercial buildings. Mr Rivers exceeds all others I have know in knowledge, courtesy, and communication. Since our first contact we have recommended Bartlett and Wes Rivers. We know our son and our friend were very pleased with his service.
Frank Allen, Southlake, TX
Wes Rivers represents your company extremely well.
Mark Theilken, Southlake, TX
Wesley Rivers is one of the nicest and most professional person we have ever met. He is always upbeat, has a can do attitude, polite, and always ready to research and solve any problem we may be having. Additionally, the young man named James who comes out to spray is also very helpful, polite, and energetic. Oh, and the guys that do the pruning, they are very detailed and leave the property cleaner than they found it.
General Comments: We will stick with Bartlett/Alpine!
Robert and Cindy Hughes, Southlake, TX
Wesley Rivers is our arborist representative, and we could not be in better hands. For the last four years, he and his crew have consistently exceeded our expectations. From fertilisation, to disease mitigation, to precision pruning, to cabling, to felling and cleanup—Wes and his guys (including Victor and James) have handled every job courteously, professionally, and with a laser focus on the long-term health and well-being of our trees and landscape. After having had multiple issues with a previous company, we could not be happier with Wes and his team. He is extremely knowledgeable. An expert problem solver. A straight shooter. And a class act. We could not recommend him more highly.
Dave and Suzie H., Colleyville, TX
Wes is great, really appreciate his advice and knowledge. The crew was outstanding. Removed two dead trees in a tight spot and left the place clean.
Joel Justiss, Colleyville, TX
Wes is very responsive and helpful. And I have spoken several times over the phone with Missy, she is also very customer focused and friendly. Good service, I can always count on you guys. Keep doing it.
Wade Hiney, Grapevine, TX
Comments about Arborist Representative: I respect Wesley Rivers’ assessments and suggestions
Greg Hidalgo, Grapevine, TX
Wesley has been excellent and is the reason why my ten tree investment has survived. He is an encyclopedia of knowledge and does not hesitate to draw on the knowledge of his peers. He was one of the very first to solve the Armored Scale Italian Cypress tree pandemic in our city. Truly expert service.
Don B., Colleyville, TX
Wesley has always been very helpful. James was extremely courteous and knowledgeable. I appreciate your service.
Gary S., Colleyville, TX
Very professional. Attentive to the homeowner's needs and requests. As of now, the job is still not complete, as we are still waiting on the stump grinding. Wes is keeping us informed as to when we might expect completion.
George C., Grapevine, TX
I respect Wesley Rivers. His assessments and suggestions are great.
Greg H., Grapevine, TX
Very respectful and timely with calls to let me know when he would be coming out. I did refer Bartlett to my business and you came out and looked at a tree for us.

Wes, James, and the crew are great. Wes is the reason we use Bartlett. He truly cares.
David B., Southlake, TX
Very good communication and service at our house through the years.
Robbie F., Grapevine, TX
I have worked with Wes before, he definitely knows what he is talking about. He is very knowledgeable, good service, very reliable, I trust them for all my tree service needs.
Wade H., Grapevine, TX
Wes is a very cordial teacher, who strives to be very informative without being didactic. We are fortunate that as an expert in his field he does not hide behind the technical side of his practice, rather he helps us to understand it. The fellow that did the application was also cordial and very accommodating and thorough.
Frank A., Southlake, TX
Wes is Fantastic. He came out to survey our needs. Showed up at my house with the crew. Reviewed everything with me and the crew. Returned later that morning to insure all was going well. The crew took extra care to prevent damage to my Japanese Maples. Cleaned up everything, even the pile of trash we did not get bagged before they arrived. Went above and beyond. Great service.
Joe and Debbie C., Grapevine, TX
We have been working with Wesley for years. He and his crew have treated us fairly and have always done a good job.
Bill D., Hurst, TX
Highest praise for Wes, Emilio, Abel, and Jose for their professionalism and skill.
Virginia L., Grapevine, TX
I have been working with Alpine since I moved to Southlake. They have always provided the service requested and the crews have also been the most courteous. I am glad to see with the transition to Bartlett, this has not changed. I have a great respect for Wes and his knowledge.
Kurt S., Southlake, TX
Everyone has been very helpful and knowledgeable about the pruning and treatments that have been recommended for our trees. We are confident that our trees are getting the very best care.
Robbie F., Grapevine, TX
Wes Rivers has always gone out of his way to help us understand what the issue is, what solutions are possible, what the pricing would be, and the timing. He also takes care to point out potential ramifications. He is a complete professional. James also is helpful, understanding, thorough, efficient and professional. He, too, takes time to explain what he is going to do, how long it will take, and what steps might be needed for follow-up.
Lee S., Colleyville, TX
Wesley Rivers was very informative about my tree problems. He made suggestions to correct the problem with the Crepe Myrtles and Live Oaks. He is extremely knowledgeable. I appreciate all his input. I have recommended him and your service to friends.
Sandy N., Grapevine, TX
We switched to Alpine/Bartlett from a competitor based primarily on the knowledge, expertise, and professionalism of our arborist, Wes Rivers. He is professional, friendly, very detailed in his approach, and exhibits a sense of urgency in responding to the needs of his customers. He also explains why he suggests the work that needs to be done. Missy was friendly and helpful and quick to set up appointment times. James has been outstanding at applying needed treatments and very communicative through the process. The crew that pruned our trees did a nice job and were thorough in their work and left no trace that they had been here. We are pleased we made the change and look forward to working with Alpine/Bartlett for many years to come.
Mike D., Grapevine, TX
Wesley and the crew were all nice and professional.

Great service from Wesley.
Andy C., Grapevine, TX
Everyone is always wonderful.
Tom and Twyla O'K., Grapevine, TX
Just wanted to let you know you and your guys did a great job trimming the trees prior to all the storms. While we had a couple of green limbs fall from the top of the Elm that had already lost some limbs, near the drive way. We did not have any large dead limbs fall. Your guys got them all. The yard and the trees weathered the storms well with only small branches to pickup. Thanks for the great work.
