Why is my tree being removed?
We are primarily removing ash trees confirmed to be infested by the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Removal is recommended by the Illinois Department of Agriculture to slow the spread of EAB. Other unhealthy or weakened trees may be removed due to infestations, disease or damage other than EAB.
