Your Fall To Do List
Give your trees the boost they need to combat diseases and insects before their long winters nap through a BioStimulant treatment.
Be Proactive. Fall inspections can reveal health and structural issues with trees. Identifying and correcting these issues improve the safety of your trees before disasters occur.
Fall is the last time of year to treat your Ash trees for Emerald Ash Borers, the most destructive pest in America. Without treatment, 95% of Ash trees will die.
Fall is one of the best times of the year for pruning. Fall pruning improves the health of the tree and prepares it for winter and a thriving spring.

It was a pleasure to work with Ben who is a polite, knowledgeable professional who clearly enjoys his work.
We moved into our home about a year ago and realized that one of the tall old sycamores near the street was rotting and would need to be removed. The arborist, Ben promptly met with us and explained that the tree had 2 fungi (which he showed us) and confirmed our suspicions. At our request, he walked the property and explained the types of trees we have and assessed the health of them. Discovered we have a Canadian Hemlock and Ben showed us the insect evidence on the tree. These trees are dying as they are prone to the wooly adelgid insect. Because the tree is beautiful and not that common, and the tree was able to be treated, we agreed to the tree injection that kills the insect. It was a pleasure to work with Ben who is a polite, knowledgeable professional who clearly enjoys his work. No pressure to buy RTEC services. Regarding the tree removal, the sycamore tree was near the power lines so RTEC coordinated with the utility company and had the utility company come to assess the work that would be done. There was a delay in the tree removal but that was due to the utility company. As far as to the actual work in removing the tree, the crew was professional and removed the tall tree without any issues. They ensured the stump was ground down and cleaned up the area--just a little sawdust remaining. Our neighbors echoed our assessment in how quickly and professionally the work was done that day. Regarding the hemlock treatment, RTEC has a process to notify neighbors if they are going to be on their property (a form is completed and the neighbor notified). Our neighbor appreciated the notification. On the day of the hemlock treatment, the person who was treating the tree, first knocked on our door to identify himself and explained what he was going to do and the time estimate (30 mins). Again, polite, professional service. We are highly impressed with the level of service, knowledge, and professionalism. We are having RTEC treat our dogwoods in the spring.

What a great service! Dan even sent pictures of the root zone when I asked.
I love the tree so much and Dan was able to spot a girdling root at the base. He dispatched his team a couple of days after I signed the contract.
I wasn't home when they did the service and was happy to see the yard clean when I came from work that afternoon.
What a great service! Dan even sent pictures of the root zone when I asked.

RTEC Treecare was terrific!
I contacted them by email, they got back in touch with me quickly to schedule am arborist to come look at the the job. We met, talked, and I showed him what we needed to have done and asked his opinion. He didn't try to upsell me on anything. The next day he sent a simple and clear (as well as reasonably priced) proposal back to me. As soon as I signed it, we determined a date for the work to be done. The 2-man team that came to perform the work was on time, efficient, polite, and did a great job. They took good safety precautions (both for our yard and for themselves.) They also left the yard looking cleaner than when they found it! They were great and our trimmed tree is happy and healthy -- and better off for the work they performed.
My only note is that if you live in a rowhouse like ours or a downtown neighborhood with crummy parking, when you are making the appointment, ask the person to write down that a smaller truck is needed. The team brought the big truck and lucked into parking, but if they hadn't, it could have been a problem.

It was such a pleasure working with RTEC Treecare during a time of crisis
It was such a pleasure working with RTEC Treecare during a time of crisis - after the ice storm on December 9, a tree split in half and fell right in front of my house, totally blocking my front door. They were able to get out to my house that day and clear the area to entering/exiting my house. The RTEC professionals I worked with - Ben, Kelly, and their crew - were so professional, friendly and kind during my time of need. All of the individuals I worked with had a great customer service attitude. I would recommend them to anyone who may need their services.

RTEC has very professional, high quality, timely services.
I have been a customer for several years. RTEC has very professional, high quality, timely services. The prices are much more than the numerous "drive by" tree care quotes I get, but I am are very satisfied with the value of the arborists' recommendations and crews' implementation of trimming, feeding, disease prevention. We appreciate the cooperation from RTEC about our special requests for trimming and near property lines.

These guys were great!
These guys were great! At the walk-thru, the arborist spent a lot of time with us trying to find a sensible solution to a 3-tree problem and came up with a workable strategy for all three tress that was the best cost/result compromise of any of the bids we got on the job. Was it the cheapest bid? No, it was a little bit higher, but after having 3 contractors come out to do estimates, they were the ones who did the most careful review of the situation and did the most to gain my trust.
I appreciated the line-item proposal that fully detailed the work to be done to each of the trees and also detailed what we needed to do in terms of permissions/approvals before they came on site. It was a refreshing change from, "Prune three trees at [address] for $XXXX."
RETC did a fabulous job, the crew was very professional and, much to my embarrassment, they left the site tidier than they found it :)
C. K. | Reston, Va
