I hired RTEC to take down a tree infront of my townhome that was looking at least half dead after my neighbor’s referral told me the tree was fine but had no real explanation as to why a third of the leaves didn’t grow back since last year and another third of the leaves present looked dead hanging on the limbs next to a few bright green leaves left. RTEC’s arborist explained the likely scenarios of what caused this plus how the tree had probably outgrown the little lot it had to grow because the previous owners overfed it. It was bigger than the rest of the trees on the block planted at the same time. When they came out to complete the job the men were professional, courteous, and efficient. They were nice about moving their equipment out of the way of neighbors getting in and out of the tight area and cleaning up on my driveway and neighboring driveways where it couldn’t be avoided to have some sawdust spreading around. They left my front plot looking clean and ready for fall planting. They also left me a couple extra bags of soil to put down after I apply a weed control agent later.
