Founded in 1985 and headquartered in Akron, Ohio, ACRT, Inc. is an employee-owned, independent and client-focused utility vegetation management (UVM) consulting firm. Our primary objective is to help utilities provide safe and reliable electric service to their customers and members. We have been 100% employee owned since 2003.
We are the first and largest national vocational commercial urban forestry consulting firm in the United States, and the first national line clearance, tree care, urban forestry training organization. Our multifunctional urban forestry team has grown to include utility arborists, horticulturists, urban foresters and GIS technicians.
With this dedicated and inherently bottom-line focused group of employees, ACRT has taken its experience in utility vegetation management and has successfully positioned itself as a leader in the industry. In addition to our consulting services, we're also a major provider of vocational training programs for those interested in developing meaningful careers in the UVM industry.
