For the most part, trees are a positive presence in your landscape or yard. Trees are naturally beautiful, and such beauty has the ability to better your property’s aesthetics. Additionally, trees offer shade and make for better air quality because of the oxygen they give off. If correctly cared and treated for, trees have the potential to live for years. Proper care and treatment allow trees to be more resistant to harsh weather conditions, insects, and disease that can result in damage. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to completely protect trees from damage. When a tree is in unstable condition and is seriously damaged, then its presence becomes hazardous.

At Hendricksen Tree Care, our professional arborists constantly conduct their work with your trees’ best interests in mind. This guarantees that your trees are properly cared for. When a tree is damaged by disease or insects, we do everything possible to restore the tree’s health. If we encounter a situation where the tree has been damaged beyond restoration, then we must remove it. We do this because trees that are unstable present a major risk for broken branches or potential collapse, which may lead to severe property damage or injuries. However, it is very dangerous to try to uproot a tree by yourself. As such, the job should be left to professionals. Hendricksen Tree Care provides tree and stump removal services for Highland Park, IL. Our professional arborists will make sure the tree and its branches and stump are completely removed from your property.
