Bartlett Tree Experts acquires Tree Top Inc.

Bartlett Tree Experts has expanded its presence in Colorado with the acquisition of Tree Top Inc. Since 2002, Tree Top has served residential and commercial clients throughout the Larimer County, Fort Collins, and Loveland areas. The acquisition and addition of a new Fort Collins office represents Bartlett’s 157th operation and third Colorado location.

Joining Bartlett, James and Anna Knotts, the owners of Tree Top, say they are excited to integrate new tools and protocols to help them take even better care of customers’ trees. Bartlett was the ideal fit to acquire their company, they added, because both are long-standing family-owned businesses that share the same dedication to quality tree care and customer service.

“Bartlett invests tremendously in arboricultural research to support its local offices in providing the most advanced tree care solutions available,” James Knotts said. “We are proud to join Bartlett and honored to be part of a team as dedicated to scientific tree care as they are.”

Bartlett Tree Experts President and COO Jim Ingram said, “We are excited about this acquisition because it allows us to expand our full range of scientific tree care services in Colorado while continuing to honor our commitment to exceptional safety, quality, and customer service.”

Patrick Brewer, vice president and division manager of Bartlett’s Southwest Division, said Tree Top’s focus on delivering high-quality tree and plant health care was very much aligned with Bartlett’s business. “It feels like a family,” he said.

The acquisition which closed on May 23 completes Bartlett’s coverage area along the Front Range and follows Bartlett’s acquisition earlier this year of 303 Tree in Boulder. Bartlett began serving the greater Denver area in 2018 when it acquired Colorado Treescapes in Littleton.
