I live on a property with many trees, and I contacted Bart’s Tree Service this month (January 2017) when I noticed a damaged tall white oak on my property. The first time I used Bart’s Tree Service was in the spring of 2015, and I was impressed with Bart’s good service at that time–so I contacted Bart’s again to get help with my new tree problem. The owner, Matt, came the next day to see the tree in question and evaluate its condition. I had no idea trees could be removed in the winter, but Matt’s hardworking crew came a week later and removed the injured tree. They also cleaned up some fallen branches as requested, and removed lots of sucker twigs that had sprung up from underground tree roots that I had also asked to have removed. Matt’s team was efficient and well organized, and did a really fine job. Now things look clean and neat. The costs are reasonable, and, because of all the many trees on my property, I will no doubt be using Bart’s Tree Service again in the future.

Very professional. Showed up on time and cleaned up. Would highly recommend Barts Tree Service to others.

We recently used Barts to remove two large trees on our property. This appeared to be a complicated endeavor as the trees were adjacent to the house. Barts assured us this would not be a problem, a crane was brought in to assist with the removal. Highly recommend this service, they are reliable, on time and performed the removal with the use of the crane with precision.

Absolutely the best service and best firewood we HAVE EVER HAD. 5 stars, thank you guys, enjoying an evening by the wood stove tonight.
10/22/16 Paul D. in Oxford, CT
We highly recommend Barts Tree Service. They were respectful, very hardworking and went above and beyond, exceeding our expectations. They removed 5 large trees plus saplings and wood chipped them all – arriving early morning and all finished by late afternoon. We were at the start of having a new house constructed and advised by one of the contractors to have a number of large trees removed before proceeding. When Matt came out to give us a quote, I explained how construction had now come to a standstill until the trees were removed. We were worried about the delay, needing to have the house built and weather tight incase of an early winter. He did, as promised, squeeze us into their busy schedule within two days. We were on a tight budget and he also worked with us , giving us a very fair price. Matt is professional, courteous and very knowledgeable. Excellent communication, always responding in a timely manner. We will definitely be calling him again for future work.

It is the second year I have used Barts service to trim and groom my property in Sherman and I cannot say enough about the professionalism of the team. They come on time as planned, do a great job and leave everything perfect. Job well dome. Thank you!
10/2/16 Jim M. from Sherman, CT
Bart’s has removed trees from my property twice and I would NEVER consider calling anyone else. Prompt, courteous and they work quickly. They never damage my other trees of shrubs. Call Matt ……you will be pleased!
8/3/16 Mary K. from Danbury, CT
I have had the pleasure of working with Bart’s Tree Service. It was a remarkable
First, it was Bart’s Tree Service’s dedication
However, upon calling them, it was truly the profession
When the crew showed up (on a date sooner than originally
It is for these reasons and others that I offer high recommenda

The entire work crew, from owner Matt Bartelme and all of the other men, are extremely professional and talented. They performed miracles in removing a tree that fell on our neighbor’s deck in a windstorm. Matt rearranged his schedule to get to the house the next day, and navigated our difficult, steep driveway to get the necessary equipment to the site. Then, after a long day, Matt returned the next morning to clean up the last of the woodchips that had spilled from the truck on the way up the driveway the night before. I wouldn’t have anyone else work on trees at our property.
6/20/16 Megan F. from Danbury, CT
Last fall we had many large pine trees cut down and the stumps have been an eyesore ever since. I found Barts online at random, read the reviews, then called. Matt called back the next day, stopped by to see the work, gave a very good price to remove the stumps, and I gave him the job. Matt also recommended to remove 2 other very old large stumps on the other side of the yard that I forgot about. He came to do the work much earlier than I thought. In all 13 large pine and 2 huge hardwood stumps were removed. The job was completed in about 1/2 day and was very professional from beginning to end. I highly recommend Barts for tree work and would call him again for his services. My very special thanks goes to Oscar who actually did the stump removal.
5/01/16 Ken H. from Brookfield, CT
I have used Bart’s tree service and was extremely pleased. The crew was very conscious of the fact huge trees were near the house and carefully took down leafed trees without falling on the house or ruining what little lawn I do have.
This time cleanup of falling over trees and an a large dead ash and cedar were removed. On the other side of the house this crew pulled through my lawn long pieces of the fallen-over trees and made a deep long ridge in my lawn. Blowing the dirt did not fix it. In total, I am WELL PLEASED with the overall job. AND have given Bart’s card to my surrounding neighbors. His pricing is very reasonable for all the work that is done.
4/18/16 Catherine M. from Ridgefield, CT
Every time we use Barts we are more than pleased. Professional and knowledgeable. The crews are so polite and they leave the work area clean and undamaged. Matt responds very promptly to requests and does exactly what we ask him to.
4/06/16 Suzi D. from Brookfield, CT
I happened to see a sign for Bart’s Tree Service stump grinding. I called and got a call back and a visit for an estimate THE SAME DAY. That is almost unheard of….I got an estimate for them to grind two large stumps and also for some tree trimming. Within a week all of the work was complete. Everyone on the crew was great. Nice guys. Great job. I’ll be keeping Bart’s Tree Service on speed dial for any future tree work.
3/24/16 Renee M. from Danbury, CT
We have used Barts Tree Service on two occasions. Specifically, Matt is a very knowledgeable arborist who keeps current in his specialty. His crew are excellent pruners who carefully remove trees and clean up branch debris. Matt readily answers questions and has very good communication skills.
3/17/16 Larry R. from Brookfield, CT
You did an excellent job. The clean-up was appreciated too. The price was right. You went over and above my expectations. I will highly recommend you to anyone I know, who needs tree removal.
2/29/16 Patti F. from Danbury, CT
Thank you for the beautiful work at our house in Danbury!! The trees have never looked better. We appreciate your eye, and your team’s thoroughness and tidiness – not a stray leaf left behind. THANK YOU BART’S TREE SERVICE!!!
5/20/15 Maura J. from Danbury, CT
This company is by far one of the best experiences we have ever had as home owners ! Matt, the owner came to give us an estimate for pruning our apple orchard. He pointed out that it had been done wrong in the past and explained what needed to be done. He spent time showing us what we could do to to save money in the future. He is very knowledgeable, professional and goes above and beyond what is expected. Thanks to Bart’s Tree Service we now have a beautiful apple orchard. We highly recommend you call them before anyone else. You will not be disappointed !
4/3/15 Scott F. from Danbury, CT
We have used Barts Tree Service on a couple of occasions. Let’s face it, tree removal isn’t cheap, but neither is a new roof, or driveway when tree roots cause it to buckle. It’s best to have someone with the right equipment and knowledge. Matt is prompt in returning calls or answering any questions, professional and overall the prices are fair. Overall I would highly recommend this company if you are looking for any tree or stump removal.
3/31/15 Florence R. from Brookfield, CT
Matt came out and gave us a free estimate after reviewing the work we were requesting to be done. He sent us a detailed proposal for work to be done and cost for each separate item.
His crew arrived within the the time frame and did a great job! Very courteous and before leaving made sure we were happy with the work and left no mess behind.
Vey happy with their work and would request their services for any future work.
12/15/14 Frank D. from Bethel, CT
Called Bart’s Monday morning after my wife heard a bad cracking noise coming from a large maple tree that towers over our kitchen. We were both worried the tree would fall on our roof. Matt came over that afternoon, examined the tree and recommended that a cable be installed to stabilize the tree. A few days later, his crew installed the cable and trimmed a few branches. We were most relieved at his quick response in assisting us and how neatly the job was done. Highly recommended.
11/6/14 Jerry S. from Ridgefield, CT
Bart’s Tree Service provide an excellent service. They were prompt, did what they said they would do and left the yard impeccable after completing a big job. Bart’s charged a fair price. I will use them again.
10/31/14 Cindy C. in Ridgefield, CT
The whole experience was really good.Part of it was luck: Matt was on his way past our neighborhood when I called about the work, and he was able to stop shortly after I called. The price was within the budget, and even though it was a busy time, he was able to get us into the schedule in under a week, which, since it wasn’t an emergency job, was much better than I expected.The work wasn’t terribly complicated although one tree and some branches were close to the house, and there was a branch over a power line. The crew was obviously experienced and had worked with one another for some time. They were careful and quick in cutting and removing trees and branches, and the clean up was outstanding–they picked up stuff I normally leave on the ground.
10/27/14 Hugh M.
Matt and his team are absolutely fantastic. They went above and beyond, were fast, polite and professional. They cleaned up beautifully and they listened well.
Matt knows his trees, shrubs and bushes and he is not out to rip you off. In fact, he gives a very fair price and gets to the job quickly and with safety in mind.
9/16/14 MaryAnn M. in Danbury, CT
I’ve worked with several tree firms in the four homes I’ve lived in, and I can honestly say that Bart’s Tree Service is extraordinary.I am very pleased with the efficient and professional work performed by Matt and his servicemen. I needed a variety of work, from pruning to removal throughout the property. As a couple men were in the trees cutting, another was dragging out to the chipper. Still others were working on another part of the yard. All was done very professionally. They were also very neat. The yard was left very neat and clean. All work requested was performed. I have been enjoying some of the “air space” now available to me. Matt and his men were also very knowledgeable of the environment, trees, of course, and the best way to accomplish the requests. Thanks Matt, I may need some more work in the future.
7/31/14 Lorraine R. from Ridgefield, CT
I first used Bart’s Tree service in 2013 to take down a large catalpa that was splitting at the base. Bart understood our concerns about the septic and his team carefully took down the tree without having any of the trunks go near the septic. They cleaned up the property after the job and did a great job.I contacted Bart again this summer to do more work on our property and his team did an excellent job and coordinated with our excavation crew. Matt is responsive, shows up and provides clear communication on what will be done and when his team will be there. Highly recommended and will continue to use them!
7/29/14 Justin D. – Review from Google+
Matt and crew showed up exactly when they said they would and did precisely what I asked them to do. They’re real pros and I’ll call them next time I need expert tree service.
6/26/14 William G. – Review from Yellowpages.com
Bart’s Tree Service offers a skilled crew with access to all the equipment and techniques to efficiently do the largest jobs. They have a bucket truck, crane, wood chipper, several tree climbers and are skilled with ropes and pulleys. They carefully removed several large trees which were precariously over my house. I watched in awe. Fair price and good communication. I highly recommend them and would use them again.
6/8/14 Rosemarie M. – Review from Yellowpages.com
Removed two 80’+ Hickory and Oak from front yard, ground stumps below grade, removed logs/branches, removed two smaller 8″ diameter trees and pruned low tree branches in backyard. Repaired lawn expertly where needed.
Fantastic Professional crew, prompt service. After the removal you couldn’t tell any work done – the area was left spotless, including driveway where chipping was done. You may find some others for less money but none as expert and professional. Would not hesitate to recommend or use again. We will only go with Barts Tree Service, Danbury
11/11/13 From Sherman
Removed trees damaged by hurricane Sandy and ground several stumps on property. Provided an estimate that was very fair, came on the date we had set and did the work promptly and efficiently. This was the third time I had used Barts Tree Service. They are by far the best in the state!
Cut down 4 trees – a storm-damaged tree leaning on another, and 2 small ones in close proximity. Left the wood, in fireplace-sized logs in the woods; chipped branches and blew them in the woods. Cleaned up debris.
The job went very well. Barts was the only provider who said they would not need to get a truck on our lawn, and therefore there was no need to cut branches of trees that were on the path from the driveway to the backyard. The job was done as discussed and per written estimate. We were not present during the job but were very satisfied with the results. Owner, Matthew Bartelme, is very professional, personable, and very responsive. I will definitely use him for all our future tree work. I would recommend him highly.
9/14/13 in Bethel, CT
Excellent job from quote to clean-up!
We decided on Matt (Barts Tree Service) after getting quotes from several different services (most deliver firewood in the area or did tree work for neighbors). Matt gave us the options we wanted (removing the brush, but leaving the tree cut up on site, since we burn wood for heat), had confidence in doing the job (tree was a large oak hanging over the house, inaccessible by bucket truck) and gave us a competitive quote. One tree service was nearly double the price and another simply refused to do the job.
Matt was easily reachable by phone and email and scheduled the job around the snowy weather and dealt with difficulties on our property (cars in driveway, hard to get to area where the base of the tree was).
The job was done during a single day (ahead of schedule), logs were left neatly stacked, brush was removed without a trace and all other debris was cleaned up. Highly recommend!
3/21/13 Jordan from Danbury, CT
Barts Tree removed one very large tree and two smaller trees. The large tree required lowering the tree sections via cables while not affecting a garden and bluestone walkway.
I’d like to thank Matt and the team for doing an outstanding job at removing all three trees. No one would even know that you were there except that the trees are gone. It certainly pays to hire professionals and it was certainly worth the wait. Thanks again.
7/16/2013 Donna from Sherman, CT
They cut down a huge oak that was hanging over my power lines and trimmed some other problem trees. They also cabled a very large potentially dangerous tree.
When Matt came to take a look at the work I needed done, he gave me several options and also made suggestions for taking care of some other issues that I hadn’t noticed. There was no pressure and he was very patient with my questions. He gave me an estimate on the spot and stuck to that estimate when all the work was completed. When the day came, Matt arrived on time and got right to organizing his crew and telling them what was needed. They listened carefully and obviously took their jobs very seriously. There was no joking around or making a lot of noise. They were friendly but hardworking. The work was finished in half the time that I thought it would be and I could hardly notice that they’d been there at all. Everything was neat and tidy. I was very impressed.
7/10/2013 in Redding, CT
Matt was very responsive when called for a quote. He took the time to review not only the trees we had called him for a quote as well as reviewed any needs and suggestions for others with no push to do more than what he was quoting for.
Matt called the night before we were scheduled that due to weather we needed to reschedule for the following day.
He and his team showed up promptly ready to get going. They were professional and several times when I asked a question were very responsive. The team not only eliminated the dead branches I requested but cleaned up more than I was expecting which was a nice surprise.
They cleaned up the yard and when my husband came home actually said he only knew they had been there because the trees were down, wood was stacked, and wood chips were in a pile.
I was very happy and would recommend Barts Tree Service again. Actually, already had a neighbor ask for their number to come give a quote.
5/18/2013 from Sandy Hook, CT
We first met Matt, the owner, during Hurricane Irene. A huge pine fell on our house and our neighbor recommended Barts. We called – and he was there before the hurricane was out to sea…no exaggeration. Since then we’ve had Matt back several times. He is great to work with, his crew is pleasant and efficient, and the prices are great.
3/4/13 from Ridgefield, CT
Hurricane Sandy toppled the top of a large hemlock onto our home, luckily it didn’t damage the house. It sure looked dangerous up there and an impending snow storm would have surely reeked more havoc if it was not removed properly. I called several tree companies, Matt responded promptly, after looking it over he emailed me a professional quote to which the insurance company responded to right away. The other tree companies were slow to respond and the quotes were verbal or late in coming. Because of the location of the tree it would prove difficult to have gotten a bucket truck into place, Matt said right away no problem, don’t worry about it my guys will climb the tree and take it down bit by bit. The other tree companies were insisting they would have to use a truck.
Matt has a great crew, the take down was perfect and the cleanup done right.
I plan to have him back in the future to do some more work for us.
2/15/13 Colin from Bethel, CT
I highly recommend Barts Tree Service to anyone looking for any type of tree work. These guys not only did an excellent job, but they went the extra mile. The Barts crew were extremely professional, efficient and hardworking. You will not be disappointed if you go with Barts….
12/19/12 Dan from New Fairfield, CT
Yes, my neighbor recommended Matt and Barts Tree Service to me. However, a strong recommendation is only the beginning because I am extremely critical when it comes to my property and the people I choose to work on it. Yes a good first impression is important, but everything that comes after that is what I care about.
Matt listened, gave good advice, a great price, and then fit me into his schedule quickly. On the day he arrived, Matt and his crew did an amazing job. I knew I had hired an expert, and he went well beyond the call of duty.
He even sculpted an awesome chair out of one of the tree stumps. Matt is a pro but he’s also an artist. Hard to find these days.
11/25/12 William from Ridgefield, CT
Matt’s Tree Service is the best! They have come twice to clear and trim trees from Hurricane Sandy and 2011’s freak fall snow storm. They were very professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I chose them over others because I was worried about them damaging other trees by driving over their roots. They were very careful not to do this and besides cutting up several fallen trees, advised and trimmed up some others to keep them healthy and happy. My trees are very special to me and want to keep them as long as I can. They also chipped up the smaller limbs branches that we used as ground cover to keep the weeds down. I would recommend them to anyone who needs tree work done.
11/30/12 Penny from Danbury, CT
Barts Tree Service was recommended to me by a neighbor. I had lost several large trees during Hurricane Sandy. Matt stopped by quickly to survey the damage and provide an estimate. I came home one day to find the work complete! He also cleared the area of all the debris and left it spotless. In addition, his price was very reasonable. Matt provided everything he promised at the price he quoted and did the work neatly and quickly. What more can you ask!!!!
11/20/12 Mary from Danbury, CT
I interviewed 3 tree service representatives and Matt Bartelme by far impressed me the most. He answered the phone which is very rare these days. He is very professional and listened carefully. His crew worked diligently and safely. All limbs were chipped and my yard was cleaned beautifully. I would highly recommend Barts Tree Service and I look forward to working with him through the years.
10/19/12 Denise from Danbury, CT
I highly recommend Barts Tree Service! They are competent, efficient, responsive, reliable,fair, personable, and go out of their way to be helpful! It is rare to find such excellent customer service. I would not hesitate to call them for any future tree work!
10/10/12 Justin from Waccabuc, CT
We asked Matt, who was doing a job next door, to look at a whole line of 60′ white pines that lined our property. He listened to what trees we wanted down and which to limb up. He gave us a very fair price!
When his crew got here, they never stopped until the job was done. Every bit was chipped and cleaned up and everything looks great! He made recommendations as he went along and did all to our satisfaction.
We would highly recommend Barts for your tree needs. They are prompt, courteous, and friendly!
9/10/12 Bobbi from Bethel, CT
I can’t say enough about my positive experience with Barts Tree Service. Matt responded the same day after my initial call. He walked the property with me and told me what I had just purchased. I knew I had a couple trees that needed to be removed and several to be trimmed. He knew exactly what needed to be done and explained why. I was immediately impressed by his knowledge. When he sent me the detailed proposal via email that evening, I knew I wanted his team to do the work.
8/31/12 Allen from New Fairfield, CT
We recently had some tree work performed by Barts Tree Service and we were very pleased. Matt’s estimate and scope of work was competitive and thorough, his crew showed up when he said they would, performed their work without incidence, cleaned up, and now we have a sunny back yard! Barts Tree Service is a local business that we highly recommend.
His team was there to do the work on time and worked efficiently to get everything done. All of the scraps and limbs were cleaned up and there wasn’t a branch or leaf left on my lawn.
When the crew was on the job, I decided to make even more changes. This was no problem for Matt or his crew and they were able to accommodate me without any hiccups.
The pricing was very reasonable and I highly recommend using them!
8/28/12 Gary From Danbury, CT
I hired Barts Tree Service last year to take down 4 trees and thin out a few others. Matt, the owner, and his crew did a great job and couldn’t have been more accommodating, neat, and polite. I was so impressed with my first experience that I hired them again to take down a few more trees earlier this week. (I didn’t feel the need to call anyone else.) I was also happy to see that his crew were the same guys who did the work at my home last year. I highly recommend this tree service and will call them again if the need arises.
6/22/12 Ellen from Woodbury, CT
Usually, when selecting a tree service, you start by asking friends, relatives, etc. Well being new to our house and area we had to take a shot on a firm we found online. I was not disappointed. Matt, the owner was personable, Listened carefully to everything we wanted done and gave us a unable able fair price on the spot.What impressed me was, when his crew came back to do the work, his team exceeded my expectations. Matt was directing them from his detailed notes and actually, doing a little more than was required.I have had Barts back to do additional work, and the same thing, they exceed my expectations. Hard to find in this day and age. Highly recommended.
6/13/12 Gregg from Redding, CT
Recently had a number of huge trees on our Ridgefield property taken down by Barts. We couldn’t be more pleased. They provided a complete and accurate estimate of the cost and scope of work. They came when they said they would and proceeded with professionalism and care. Even the clean-up was done thoroughly.I highly recommend Barts Tree Service.
7/26/11 Sara from Ridgefield, CT
My husband and I have used Barts Tree Service twice now and they are great. We had a huge tree in the middle of our driveway which at one point we thought was endearing but finally just became an obstacle to get around. The tree was very close to our house. Came down without incident, cut into lengths for firewood, ground out the stump and cleaned up impecably. Very professional, courteous, and reasonable. Would definitely use again.
