Trees and shrubs in a yard or on a commercial property can provide many benefits. The main one is aesthetics to the property. The green healthy leaves provide not only shade for us but also the opportunity for birds and squirrels to live among the branches. Commercial properties with green healthy trees and shrubs help with stress relief in the workplace besides adding color and shade to the property. A well-manicured yard/property will always improve property values.

But when the trees and shrubs become disease ridden or over grown in their allotted space it is time for the property owner to address the issues. We at Lakeside Tree Services understand how important it is to try and preserve a tree when possible.

Lakeside Tree Service has been in business since 2005 and we have had the pleasure to work with many homeowners and businesses in a 40-mile radius of Decatur, Illinois. This includes the communities of Clinton, Monticello, Moweaqua, Illiopolis, Decatur and communities in between!

We look forward to talking to you about the condition of your trees and foliage. We will come to your property to talk to you directly about what type of services will best meet your needs and provide a no obligation written estimate of services.

A Huge shout out to Lakeside Tree Service. I received a great quote yesterday and this morning they were here getting it done. I loved the fact that they have winter rates (40% off) so if your thinking about getting trees trimmed or cut down now is the time. They were very professional, worked around several power and utility lines and cleaned up a lot better than I had dreamed. Thank you Michael and your crew! - Gary B.

They trimmed my big tree; which is very difficult to get to. When I got home I was pleased to see they did a great job of trimming it back and cleanup. Thanks Michael. - Kay S.

Do you chip brush?

Yes, we would be happy to chip the brush so that it can be reused. Let us know if you wish to keep the chips.

Can you use a bucket truck around power lines?

Yes we are power line certified so we can use our bucket trucks. The first step is to temporarily disconnect the power lines before we begin working on the tree(s).

How can you tell when a tree or branch is dead?

The first thing to check is if it has any bark. Are there buds on the ends of the branches? Look at the color of the bark. If it has changed to gray, the tree or branch is dead and needs to be safely removed before it can create any damage to your property.

What is your service area?

Lakeside Tree Service will travel to any community located within a 40-mile radius of Clinton, Monticello, Moweaqua and Illiopolis.

Is Lakeside Tree Service ecofriendly?

Yes, we love trees and we would much rather prune and trim trees/brush then to remove them. Once we remove a tree, we will cut the logs into firewood and deliver it to your home for free or haul it away. That includes wood chips and mulch!
