The last couple of weeks have been very challenging for all West Virginians. Violent storms began ripping through our state on July 29th and left more than 688,000 homes and businesses without electricity and thousands more with substantial damage to their homes and businesses. The electrical outages were unprecedented and more than our state teams could handle. On behalf of all West Virginians, I want to personally thank you and the men and women of ACRT who travelled great distances to offer their expertise and support in order to restore power to our West Virginia citizens.
— Earl Ray Tomblin, Governor, West Virginia
I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the dedication of all ACRT employees, especially from the SCUFs. With the implementation of a newly developed Storm Process in Si/Sac division, SCUFs have taken on additional responsibilities not only for their own employees, but also for coordinating and dispatching TT resources. Without any hesitation, I can say that Jim Erskine, Chris Schroeder, Richard Peabody and Jordan McKay have truly mastered this new challenge and supported each other in unprecedented ways. Again, your team is stepping up to the plate to ensure future outages and fire risks are being minimized. Thank you.
— Karsten Schulz, Pacific Gas & Electric

I would like to personally thank ACRT for helping to set up and man our annual members meeting. ACRT was very well represented to our customers as professional and knowledgeable SECO partners with our members' best interests at heart. Great job!
— Ken Lacasse, Manager of Integrated Vegetation Management, Sumter Electric Cooperative
Let me echo Ken's thanks ACRT for helping us again this year. The fact that not a single member complained to anyone at the annual meeting about tree trimming is a testament to the great job that ACRT and Nelson Tree Service have done on our system.
— John LaSelva, Director of Reliability & Operations, Sumter Electric Cooperative
On behalf of the Board of Directors and the West Falmouth Library, we thank you for ACRT's participation in the 2012 Arbor Day workday at the West Falmouth Library on Friday, April 27. Your company's generosity in volunteering equipment, as well as staff time and expertise, was greatly appreciated. The tree work that was accomplished on the library property made valuable improvements by removing trees and limbs for beautification as well as safety. The workers accomplished their tasks professionally and with great attention to detail. We, as well as all who enjoy visiting the West Falmouth Library, appreciate that your business participated in this year's Arbor Day workday. The two trees donated by NSTAR, a Dawn Redwood and Japanese Snowbell that were planted on Arbor Day, are lovely specimens. They add beauty to the library grounds now and will continue to be enjoyed by future generations of visitors.
— Catlyn Ellms, President of Board of Directors & Pamela Olson, Library Director, West Falmouth Library
