Bartlett Tree Experts, No. 5 on the 2023 LM150 list, acquired Joshua Tree in Wilmington, N.C.

“We are excited to expand in the Cape Fear region with the acquisition of Joshua Tree of Wilmington, a quality company that shares our passion for trees,” Jim Ingram, Bartlett Tree Experts president and COO said.

Joshua Shields founded Joshua Tree in 2015. Shields found a fit in Bartlett Tree Experts to acquire his business and was impressed with Bartlett’s approach to safety, quality scientific tree and shrub care and customer service.

“Bartlett is a family business that has been a leader in the industry for 117 years and is well-known for its scientific approach to tree care,“ said Shields. ”With Bartlett, our customers can rely on local attention from highly skilled arborists with a commitment to service and safety.”

Shields also recognized the immediate benefits of Bartlett’s arboricultural research facility in Charlotte, which supports Bartlett’s offices in delivering scientific tree care solutions. Shields joins Bartlett in its new Wilmington office as an arborist representative along with members of his production arborist team.

“The acquisition of Joshua Tree expands Bartlett’s scientific tree care services for more of the Wilmington area’s residential and commercial property owners, as well as broadening our services to the Hanover, Brunswick and Pender areas,“ said Steve Johnston, vice president of Bartlett Tree Experts operations in the Southeastern U.S. “This will go a long way toward improving the health and beauty of their trees and landscapes.”

Other recent expansion efforts from the company include the addition of Emery’s Tree Service, breaking into the Kentucky market with the acquisition of Town Branch Tree Experts, the acquisition of Baltimore Tree Experts in Central Maryland, the additions of Haskell Tree Service of Buffalo and Climb High Tree Service in Lebanon, Pa., and the acquisition of The Haupt Tree Co. in Western Massachusetts and Stansbury Tree Service in northern Maryland.
