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 🙂
