Bartlett Tree Experts, the leading scientific tree care company with 159 offices worldwide, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its presence in the Alberta, Canada market with the acquisition of Sullivan Tree Service in Calgary.
Since 2008, Sullivan Tree has provided quality tree and shrub care services in Calgary and the surrounding areas. The acquisition, which includes the onboarding of 12 Sullivan Tree employees, provides greater depth of experience and strengthens the capabilities of Bartlett’s existing local office team in Calgary.

“Like Bartlett Tree Experts, Sullivan Tree is a family business with a passion for trees,” said Jim Ingram, president and chief operating officer of Bartlett Tree Experts. “As a leader in our industry for more than 115 years, we continue to expand our scientific tree care services in new and existing markets with a focus on quality work and customer satisfaction. We’re excited to welcome the Sullivan Tree team of professional arborists into our Calgary office.”
Noah Violini, vice president of Bartlett’s Canada Division, said the owner of Sullivan Tree, Joey Sullivan, approached Bartlett about joining forces because he heard favorable reviews from the former owner of a company that was previously acquired by Bartlett.
“They were impressed by our elevated level of safety, professionalism and customer service,” Violini said. “Bartlett has been committed to growing our presence in Canada since we began serving our clients here over 23 years ago. Sullivan Tree Service was the right cultural fit for this acquisition, which provides an important addition to our business and growth strategy. We’re proud to have their talented team join us, and we’re excited to show our new clients Bartlett’s offerings as a global leader in scientific tree care and safety in our industry.”
The acquisition doubles Bartlett’s presence in the greater Alberta area, which it first entered in 2019 with the acquisition of Tree Frog Tree Care. In addition to 147 offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Ireland, the company operates 12 offices in Canada.
