Bartlett Tree Experts acquires Buena Vista Arbor Care
Bartlett Tree Experts has expanded its operations in the Pacific Northwest with the acquisition of Buena Vista Arbor Care in Corvallis, Ore.
The expansion grows Bartlett’s operations into the Mid-Willamette Valley and to the Oregon Coast, where Buena Vista Arbor Care has operated for more than 26 years under the ownership of Certified Arborists Vernon and Priscilla Esplin.
“This acquisition allows us to expand our services to customers in the mid-Willamette Valley, a beautiful area with agriculture, vineyards and a rich tradition of forestry and horticulture,” said Kevin Carr, district manager of Bartlett’s Pacific Northwest Division. “We are excited to provide our clients in this new area with Bartlett’s full suite of scientific tree care services.”
“We found that Vernon and his team at Buena Vista Arbor Care to be a good match with Bartlett because we share the same values and culture of safely caring for our clients’ trees,” said Jim Ingram, president and COO of Bartlett Tree Experts.
A group of 12 arborists have joined Bartlett from Buena Vista, operating out of a new Bartlett office in Corvallis. The acquisition, which was completed December 6, is Bartlett’s latest in the state.
