Tree Services

  • Damage, disease or safety concerns can turn some trees from an asset into a liability. When this occurs, our certified and bonded arborists can be trusted for safe and efficient tree removal service in Barrington, Illinois.

    Look for these signs as an indicator it may be time to remove:

    • Heaving soil at the base of the trunk and beneath the canopy
    • Decay-producing fungi, such as mushrooms, growing at the base of the trunk
    • Chipped or peeling bark and cracks in the trunk
    • Cavities in the trunk or large scaffold branches
    • Dead or hanging branches in the upper crown
    • Fine twigs without living buds near the ends of branches
  • Tree trimming service is an important tool to help sustain a tree’s health and retain its natural appearance. We assess your tree’s trimming needs from removal of unhealthy limbs to disease reduction.

    These signs can indicate when it’s time for professional tree trimming:

    • Your tree appears too close to power lines
    • Branches are close or are touching your home
    • You see dead, unsightly or loose hanging branches
    • Your trees have not been trimmed or pruned in the last three years
    • You would like your tree shaped for a more aesthetic curb appeal
  • Trees and shrubs in an urban setting loose nutrients in a number of ways, but applying fertilizer is a way to restore vitality.  Our slow-release fertilizer Arbor Green PRO® replaces nutrients and improves resistance to disease and stressful weather while maximizing the beauty of your trees and shrubs.

  • I enjoyed watching one of your teams take down two large trees outside of my kitchen window. The circumference of the two stumps at ground level was 65 inches and 87 inches with the larger tree being approximately 78 feet tall. The team work was beautiful, amazing and efficient.

    Your field staff has always provided wonderful care of our trees & shrubs. I am always amazed and very appreciative of the neatness and clean up of our yard after they trim our trees and prune our shrubs. It is nice to know that you do such a nice and thorough job each time and on schedule. We highly recommend your services to our friends and neighbors! We are extremely pleased with your services.
