Bartlett Tree Experts acquired Urban Forestry Services, a horticulture, arboriculture and urban forestry consulting company that has been operating out of Mount Vernon, Wash., since 1990.

The new operation will be known as Urban Forestry Services | Bartlett Consulting. This acquisition furthers the expansion of the company’s consulting division, which also includes HortScience | Bartlett Consulting, the United Kingdom and Ireland Consultancy team, and Bartlett Inventory Solutions.

“This acquisition is helping us meet our strategic goals for the growth of our consulting division,” said Nick Martin, director of Bartlett Consulting. “Urban Forestry Services has an amazing reputation, and their experience and professionalism will help take the consulting division to the next level. I believe their focus on proper tree selection, which is rooted in survivability, will help strengthen our overall approach to establishing and growing our urban forests.”

Jim and Annie Barborinas, former owners of Urban Forestry Services, will be continuing in their roles as consultants and managers with Urban Forestry Services | Bartlett Consulting. The pair first opened Urban Forestry Services in 1990 to provide tree inventories, tree risk assessments, horticultural consultation and landscape appraisals to the Puget Sound Region. Just a few years later, they opened a second business called Urban Forest Nursery to grow and sell quality wholesale trees meant for urban streets and landscapes, which they will retain.

Bartlett’s consulting division was established in 2018 with the acquisition of HortScience in Pleasanton, Calif. “Our evolution since the formation of Bartlett Consulting has not stopped, and the Urban Forestry Services | Bartlett Consulting team has added tremendous strength to our foundation,” Martin said. “This development will enable us to continue to grow and better serve all of our clients and the industry overall.”
