STAMFORD, Conn. – Bartlett Tree Experts has expanded its presence in California to include the Los Angeles metro area with the recent acquisition of Finch Tree Surgery. Located in San Gabriel, this is Bartlett’s seventh operation in the state, where they also have offices in the Bay Area and Santa Barbara.

“Finch Tree is known for exceptional pruning work. The staff is meticulous about adhering to our industry standards and best practices, and it shows. In addition to entering a new market, this acquisition has been an opportunity to add some very talented professionals to our team,” said James Ingram, president of Bartlett Tree Experts.

Fred Finch worked in tree care for more than 20 years before he founded Finch Tree in 1968, and quality workmanship was a priority from the beginning. His son, Randy Finch, carried on that tradition for 33 years as a consulting arborist and owner of the business before making his recent decision to retire..

Finch’s former president, Daniel Goyette, is staying on to manage the San Gabriel operation for Bartlett Tree Experts. A certified arborist and tree safety professional, Goyette has been with the company for seven years. The office’s other team members will remain the same as well, providing a smooth transition for all involved, including clients.

“Moving into a new service area through an acquisition requires a lot of trust,” Ingram comments. “We look for businesses with strong cultures of high quality work, safety, and customer service. That’s what we found with Finch.”
