We provide tree removal services for residential and commercial properties in Chicago suburbs around Homer Glen, IL. We also offer tree trimming, stump removal, and disease management for trees.

Enhance Your Curb Appeal With Tree Trimming

Tree trimming, or tree pruning, can help your home or business increase its curb appeal. This process keeps your trees or shrubs looking immaculate instead of overgrown. Tree trimming increases your tree’s life by getting rid of weak or dead tree limbs.

Weak or dead trees can cause major damage to your business or home during a severe storm. Developing growth patterns for young trees and providing space for signs and structures are other reasons to have your trees trimmed. Pruning should be done by a professional arborist which is why Lemont, IL residents count on us to get the job done.

Create An Organized Yard By Removing Trees

Your yard can become crowded when there are multiple trees and could even be dangerous. We will help you navigate every option to manage your trees, but it may be a better option to remove them. If you think your tree may be a risk of falling and causing damage, here are some signs your tree should be removed:

Roots are Damaged or Dying - Tree roots can protect themselves from damage; however, there is a limit to how much damage they can endure before they become severely damaged. 
Cavities or Cracks - Cracks or holes in the tree allow for water to ruin the wood and the number of nutrients to lessen. If there is extensive bark damage, the tree will have to be removed. 
Dangerous to You or Others - Some trees could pose a hazard to drivers or yourself depending on where the tree is located on your property. Our team knows how to navigate around power lines while using the appropriate tools to avoid an electrical hazards. 
Hanging or Dead Branches in the Upper Crown - Trimming your tree can fix this issue, but your tree may be unhealthy and need to be removed. 

Instead of making a tree fall and cutting it into parts, we remove your tree with a crane. This method is safer and reduces the time it takes to remove a tree from your Lockport, IL property. Sections of the tree will be lifted by the crane and taken to a different area to be disposed of. 

Our professional arborists have been trained to handle hazardous situations and our hi-tech equipment. Before we decide to remove a tree, we thoroughly examine the tree to determine if it can be saved by trimming it. We strive to make your Orland Park property look clean and organized for residents and business owners.

Get Rid of Those Unattractive Tree Stumps

Not only do we remove your trees, but we will remove your tree stumps as well. Our New Lenox and Lockport teams will help remove your stumps without tearing up your entire yard. Stump grinding is an alternative to stump removal and is less expensive. Stump removal takes out the entire root system of the tree to prevent it from growing again. Grinding down the stump will remove it from the surface level, but the root system will not be removed. 

Whether it is residential or business, your Palos Park, IL property will look seamless after grinding your stump.

Examine Your Tree’s Health

A tree’s health can start to decline due to pests, diseases, exposure to weather, and soil changes. The better a tree or shrub's health is, the better it will fight off any diseases or insects. Our professional arborists in Lemont will be able to walk you through any health issues of your trees. We put our focus on performing preventative maintenance to increase your tree’s health. 

Our company uses environmentally-friendly products and treatments for your trees. We assess all our options when determining a tree’s health and how to repair it without causing harm to the environment around it.

We also conduct tree surveys for tree management plans. Our survey includes the number, type, health, and location of your trees. This can be helpful for your tree’s treatment plan or an overall tree management plan. Tree surveys are required in many communities for approval of construction permits. Whether it is a small survey for a few trees or a large survey including over 100 trees, our New Lenox, IL arborists can handle the job.
