Tree trimming recommendations

I'm new to the area and have some big beautiful trees in my yard. Problem is, many big branches are over my roof and electrical lines. I'd like some recommendations on local, reasonable, reputable tree trimming companies. Can anyone make some recommendations? Thanks!

  • Fairfield family Recycling block captain

    We've used Smitty's and are very happy with them. If the branches are really involved with the electical drops or wires, ComEd will trim that part at no cost. The problem is they don't go for estetics--if you catch my drift. A tree trimming service can come in afterward and balance the tree. You can talk to them about that option before you contact ComEd.

  • Thanks so much all! I will get quotes from a few of these recommendations.

  • Little Hands Learning Center Academy reviewed by a parent

    I am a proud grandparent of two graduates and absolutely impressed by this school and all that they did for my grandchildren. The Directors and Staff treat our entire family like actual family. I can't say enough great things about them. Their end of the year production is amazing and I like the other family events they coordinate throughout the year like Grandparents day (they SPOILED US), October funfest and Parent Preneur Night. They also do foreign language, dance and so much more.I wanted my grandchildren to receive a well rounded education so I am super glad we found LHLC.

Barraco's Plans For A Banquet Hall In Beverly Approved By City Council

The $1.8 million plan will transform the long-vacant library at 2125 W. 95th St. into an 8,200-square-foot banquet hall, according to a release from the mayor's press office.

The .61-acre site also includes a 25-space parking lot and a 2,800-square-foot building at 2105 W. 95th St. that will feature a limited carry-out menu, a staff member for Ald. Matt O'Shea (19th) said Wednesday.

To better accommodate parking, the restaurant chain also signed a 10-year lease for a nearby lot at 9448 S. Pleasant Ave. The city-owned lot will be used to valet park cars during banquets.

The alderman on the Far Southwest Side said he backed the restaurant's effort after Barraco's successfully transformed another blighted storefront at 3047 W. 111th St. in Mount Greenwood. The Italian restaurant's first city location opened there in May 2014.

  • St Barnabas Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    My children attended the school. The library,art,gym and technology are well done. The Afterschool Enrichment is very good. My children would have had a better experience is I had been on the school board or FSA. Their children get chosen for leadership or recognition. There is a strong distinction over families that get special treatment and the general population. My children are doing fine academically ,however I wish that the school would give all students opportunity to shine
