Have used them for several years now. What a difference from the roaming tree cutters who have butchered my neighbors trees and left a mess in her yard. A professional arborist makes a difference and it is worth the slightly extra fee to do the job right.

Grossly expensive and sloppy work. I contacted Rtec to trim approximately 130 feet of hedge. Even though it was discussed during the site visit, 30 feet of hedge was left out of the proposal. So, I ended up paying $1,400 for trimming 100 feet of hedge. The job was sloppy and unattractive. I sent pictures showing the poor work and asked them to fix it. I got a very condescending response saying, in effect, that he was the arborist (and I was not), and that, in his expert opinion, no further action was necessary.

We use RTEC for tree and shrubbery maintenance. I found there is a learning curve when working with RTEC. Initial discussions and services tend to be somewhat generic, but as their arborist becomes more familiar with your particulars, the dialogue comes into sharper focus, and the suggestions and solutions seem more specific to your yard, trees, shrubbery, and their history. After each visit (we are on a maintenance and surveillance schedule) we receive an analysis of our plantings, accompanied by photographs clearly depicting disease or other problems, along with treatments and/or solutions applied or recommended. The arborist is willing to answer questions and make recommendations while onsite. Prices are comparatively high, but the firm is ethical in avoiding hidden charges or skimping on service or materials. They offer a number of "preventative" services and treatments via email; it's up to you to decide what you really need/want. RTEC's regular newsletters do provide examples (including photos) of problems (disease symptoms, pest damage, etc.) that you can be lookout for around your property.
