National tree-care company finds foothold in Clackamas

Bartlett Tree Experts announced earlier this month its acquisition of Collier Arbor Care, a Clackamas company since 1937.

Bartlett, which serves 27 states, gained its first office in Oregon.

“Working with Collier Arbor Care is the best possible way to expand Bartlett’s presence in the Pacific Northwest,” said James Ingram, president of Bartlett.

Terrill Collier, former owner of Collier Arbor Care, will join Bartlett as its plant health care consultant. With 33 years of experience, Collier is a past president of the Tree Care Industry Association and holds a bachelor’s degree in entomology from Oregon State University.

With this change, Bartlett has selected Kevin Carr to manage the Clackamas location. Carr, also a master arborist, most recently managed Bartlett’s office in Gaithersburg, Md. — the largest of the company’s 97 operations. Otherwise, staffing at the Collier office will remain the same.

Regarding future growth of Bartlett’s operations in the area, Ingram said, “Acquiring Collier Arbor Care has been a great experience, and we hope to find equally promising opportunities for expansion in other locations in the Pacific Northwest. We are committed to building our business here.”
