Best prices in town. Family owned and great customer service. I've had many quotes and I loved how Juan was no nonsense straight to the point and amazing work. Juan and his men did everything they agreed to take out and more. My neighbor did not believe us when we said progressive tree service will remove the tree entirely, stump, roots and all with the quoted price. Will recommend this company to all. Very happy!

Excellent service and price. Juan came out within 24hrs and provided an estimate. Progressive removed a huge tree in between homes. Their team removed the tree with ease and precision. They seriously made it look easy! I would highly recommend them.

These guys are true professionals. I had a damaged tree coming out of the ground that was leaning toward my house. They were able to get me on the schedule for the following day. When they arrived to remove the tree the foreman (Eloy) noticed that another tree nearby had split at the base and was in danger of falling on our house. They were able to remove both trees by the end of the day. They are clearly a highly skilled and efficient crew. I would recommend them to anyone requiring this kind of service.

Certified Arborist Tree Removal & Care

Progressive Tree Service is a tree care company with locations in Chicago and Evanston IL.

Our tree service teams are supervised by an ISA certified arborist

So you are searching for “tree service near me” and you get a lot of tree service companies, each one bragging about how they are the best and the most affordable.   

Honestly, it is a little bit confusing.

This is how you decide.    

First, you have to understand that there are a lot of tree service providers that offer very similar services at comparable prices. You should split your choices in 2:   

 1️   The 1-2 man team, often cheaper in the short run. They might cost you a lot more in the long run because of lack of experience, proper equipment, labor force and bad recommendations. Yes, bad recommendations can cost you – that tree you just removed might’ve added 10-15k to your overall property value. Could you have saved it? You’ll never know. 

2️   The established tree service contractors, most of which are insured, bonded and certified.   

Sure, there are some expert tree providers that work with very small teams and do a very good job. But you should very carefully examine proof of insurance, certifications and the contract they provide you with, just to make sure that they are reachable if anything goes wrong.   

Established tree service companies can be selected by paying attention to details:   

✅      What to people say about them. Do they have good reviews? 
✅     Do they clean up after they are done trimming or removing a tree? You do not want to hire another company to perform the cleaning and you should not have to.
✅    Do they have the proper equipment?
✅     Are they experienced enough to handle some of the most difficult tree removal jobs? Imagine having to remove a tree leaning on the power cables just a few yards short of your roof with very little clearance. At 3AM, while it is raining hard.
✅    What is their approach to doing business and customer satisfaction? You know that server at the restaurant that smiled all the time and handed you an extra fortune cookie? This is how companies that you do business with should make you feel.      
✅  Do they offer the service you need at the required scale? For us, no job is too small or too big, from residential tree care to commercial and municipal tree service.

Enough about us.
