Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA)TCIA bestows awards annually for outstanding professional performance in preserving the health and beauty of trees. GTSS was honored for its exemplary tree care work at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Beich of Bethlehem, Pa. We performed tree removals, crown thinning, and natural pruning and rejuvenating of shrubbery.
In 1979 Gary's Tree & Shrubbery Service purchased its first tree truck and began to focus primarily on tree maintenance. For the next decade the company added bucket trucks, stump grinders, backhoes, front-end loaders, and spray trucks to expand the ability to better serve customers' tree-care needs. During that time, for approximately seven years, Gary's Tree Service in conjunction with Penn State, monitored the pest population in the university's Integrated Pest Management Program. By monitoring weather conditions and collecting pest counts, the program helped local applicators determine the optimal time to apply treatment for specific insect problems. At the same time, the company began to stress, through education, proper techniques for pruning and caring for trees.
In 2016, Gary’s Tree and Shrubbery Service became a division of Bartlett Tree Experts. Our employees pride themselves on performing the best quality tree care and strive to meet the company's philosophy of complete customer satisfaction.
