Tree removal

I am looking to get a large cottonwood tree removed in Hermosa. Any suggestions for a reliable tree removal company? Thanks!

  • Just wondering, are the trees dead or damaged or you just don't like shade? Removing large trees in Logan Square should be discouraged unless it's necessary as we are currently experiencing the blight of the emerald ash borer which is causing the death of all of the ash trees in the neighborhood.

  • One of the trees has branches hanging over the house, which have been trimmed and are now regrowing. It looks like a fungus is creating big bulbus looking knots on those branches. Definitely doesn't look safe to keep up.
