Do a quick online search and you’ll see there are a number of tree services in the Chicago area. With so many options to choose from, how do you know which one is right for your project? Let’s dive into some of the qualities of a reputable tree service.

Experienced

We’ve touched on this in previous posts, but it’s worth mentioning again. There are times when you can maybe get away with hiring someone who doesn’t have much experience. Trust us when we say this is not one of those times.

Tree care requires extensive experience to ensure the health of your trees. Not to mention, you need someone who’s been there and done that to properly use the heavy-duty equipment and precise tools. Don’t make the mistake of hiring an inexperienced tree care specialist — opt for a seasoned professional instead.

This is where Pro Tree Services comes into play. Serving Chicago and surrounding suburbs for four decades, we’ve seen just about everything imaginable with trees and bushes. Let us put our experience to work for you!

Licensed, bonded, and insured  

You’d be surprised by the number of tree maintenance experts who are not properly certified. Even in 2019, when virtually everything about a business can be found online, people are still trying to scam their customers.

Maybe you’re asking yourself, “What difference does it make if a tree service is licensed and insured?” In short, a tree care company that is licensed, bonded, and insured can legally provide the services listed on their website. Of course, there’s also a liability factor involved — if one of the workers is injured on your property, the company is the responsible party and not you.

There’s no need to worry about running into an unexpected licensing or insurance snafu with Pro Tree Service. We are a fully licensed, insured, and bonded company, meaning we can legally perform tree removal, tree trimming, land clearing, and more.    

Customer-focused 

A tree care professional, similar to home contractors, should go above and beyond to earn your business. This means providing a detailed, written estimate, answering any questions you may have, and cleaning up when the work is done. Why would you give your hard-earned money to a tree service that cuts corners, does the bare minimum, and fails to communicate with you throughout the process?

Here at Pro Tree Service, the customer has been a top priority since we opened our business over 40 years ago. Whereas other tree care companies see their customers as just another number in their queue for the day, we take the time to ensure that every customer feels at ease regarding the entire process. You can expect Pro Tree to treat you like family, regardless of the scope of your project. 

Knowledgeable

This ties back to the aforementioned point regarding experience. The longer a tree service has been in business, the more knowledgeable they are. With a project as big as tree removal, it’s imperative to hire someone who understands the industry inside and out.

Pro Tree’s knowledge of the industry is evident the first time you contact us. It’s our belief that the more a customer is informed about tree care, the more comfortable they will be working with us. 

Affordable

A major reason why homeowners put off tree care is that they’re worried about the cost. Here’s the thing: while it might not be cheap to have a tree removed, it shouldn’t break the bank. Yet many local tree maintenance companies gouge their customers with unfair, outrageous prices.

Pro Tree Service, on the other hand, is committed to providing top-notch service at the most affordable rates. With our Best Price Guarantee, we will match or beat any reasonable, written estimate by 10%. You won’t find that kind of offer anywhere else!
