Advanced Tree Care does indeed beat the competition with their prices.
I received 5 quotes and the highest was double what Advanced charged (plus the highest bidder wanted an extra $50 to call ComEd to take down our electricity for the day. Advanced worked around the wires so my husband was able to stay connected to work all day.)
Advanced removed an overgrown corkscrew-type willow from our very tiny back yard on April 12. The friendly 3-man crew did a good job on a dangerous tree. I've cut a few trees down (when I was younger/crazier), so you can believe me when I say they know what they're doing. The rope work was impressive.
Halfway through, additional staff arrived to help finish, which included removing and replacing a chain link fence to get the grinder into our yard through our neighbor's yard. (FYI: The grinder was actually a bit wider than 36" so it didn't fit through our back gate.)
Mike made sure I was happy with the job before leaving.
It pays to read Yelp reviews!
I recently had a ash tree in my front yard removed by them. A+ service. I used the quick estimate on their website and got a e-mail with a quote that was better than 3 other companies I had called. I approved the proposal and they were out the following day to do the work. Very professional and knowledgeable. The are easy to get a hold of and will answer any ?'s or concerns. I will for sure use them again!
We had them come out recently to look at an old oak tree in our yard that has fungus growing out if it. We were worried we would hear it needs cutting down followed by an expensive estimate. We learned it will go at some point but it's ok for now. Mike, who we spoke with, was honest, informative and very professional. It's nice when you get an honest opinion and you don't feel like they are out for your money. When we do need to take care of the tree we will definitely reach out to them again!
The crew just left and not only are they a fun and polite group, but they did such a nice job. They cleaned up every twig in both my yard and the adjoining neighbor's, roofs included. If a tree part landed hard and left a divot or equipment scarred the lawn, they worked diligently to put things back in order.
A disciplined and kind crew (some even helped a neighbor catch a run away dog!) can only mean good service from the top. This was the most reasonable quote we got, and I couldn't be happier to pass their name on.

Excellent job! by Michele S Mundelein
I chose Mike to do the work on my yard simply because of the excellent reviews he had on this site, and I will say that I was definately not disappointed! The pricing was approximately 15% less than other competitors to have one large oak tree removed, 3 large sycamore trees pruned, and 5 stumps removed. They were on time to start the job, and my yard looks better than before they started. Mike had to remove a portion of my fence to remove the oak tree from my backyard, and the bottom of the post was so rotted out, they replaced it at no charge. I would absolutely recommend them to any of my neighbors and friends that are looking for a honest, professional tree trimming/removal service. Thanks again Mike to you and your team!
Mike and advanced tree care are the best! by joe t
Recently I had Mike and his crew out to our house to trim, prune three large trees and take another down, they were "tree-mendous." From my first contact with Mike until the last leave was blown away it has been nothing short of a great experience. First off, when I called Mike he got back to me in a day and scheduled an appointment for an estimate two days later. When he came out he was very professional and listened to my concerns and was very thorough in explaining how they could be addressed. I knew than they were the people for me. I called him back after receiving his proposal and he scheduled me the following week! When Mike's crew arrived to do the job it was like a finely tuned tree swat team that proceeded with caution, precision in doing the work, and truly cared about our property as well. As they proceeded cutting and pruning my neighbors started to gather and watch this crew perform like this fine high wire act for two plus hours. Everything and more was done to perfection! Mike even made a point to ask me if everything was done as expected and trimmed some other limbs that were not in the original proposal. The crew was immaculate in their clean up and the placed look better than when they started. One of the most interesting things was that when the last leave was blown away and the crew was getting into the their trucks to leave my neighbors (about 12) across the street broke out in applause for the great job they dId! My backyard was transformed from an overgrown tree mess to a parklike setting by Mike and his crew in one afternoon, I am very grateful for the wonderful job they did. This is the first review I have ever done, But I am telling you if you need tree service just call Mike and don't waste your time with anyone else, They after the best! -
Got rid of my Box Elder tree by Steve
I called Mike to get a quote to remove the large Box Elder tree in my backyard. MIke gave me a fair quote beating the competition. Mike came with his crew on the date and time planned. In a matter of a few hours, the tree was gone and the backyard was cleaned up. Mike and his crew acted in a very professional manner. I would highly recommend Advanced Tree Care for your tree removal.

Mike and his team were top notch. I had some dangerous tree limbs fall on my roof with the potential for severe damage. I called several companies and was given outrageous estimates. Then I came across Advanced Tree Care. Mike came out and gave me a fair estimate for the work and explained the entire process to me. He made several follow up calls as to when they would be out. His team was great. They removed all the debris with no damage to my roof. I think the clean up was the most surprising part. Mike's team cleaned up the entire mess made from the process leaving my home looking just like it had before the tree limbs fell. I would highly recommend Advance Tree Care to anyone in need of tree service!
Jim in Mount Prospect
Mike and his crew were prompt and professional. They did a great job removing two large trees from our yard, including the stumps. The final price was exactly as estimated and, best of all, Mike beat his nearest competitor by over 20% !!! I would definitely recommend Advanced Tree Care.
The Real Deal by Very Satisfied Customer
Mike is professional, experienced and knowledgeable. He's not just the estimator. He leads the crew all day long. He showed up when he said he would and even called to let me know he was on schedule. He accurately assessed the needs on my property in 1/4 of the time one of his competitors took to come to the same conclusion. He and his crew worked carefully and efficiently while maintaining friendly attitudes throughout the 5 hour job. Watching Mike swinging from a harness 45 feet in the air with a chainsaw in his hand was to see a real expert at work. All of the debris was hauled away and they even cleaned up most of the saw dust. Everyone I showed the work site to was impressed. Mike priced his job extremely competitively and I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to use his services again or to recommend him to anyone needing tree removal or trimming.
Tree Removal by Anna Lake Villa
They beat every other company's price by $200 or more and the service was great. I hired them to remove my back yard Maple Tree over my house. They removed it in one afternoon with no damage and left no mess. Good job guys.
Yes all 12 acres... by AngS
Mike and his crew transformed my acreage! He removed a ton of dead trees, shrubs and buck thorn. I will definitely continue to call Advanced to maintain my landscape...
Large Cottonwood gone w/ NO Damage!!! :) by Happy Ham
Mike and his crew showed up on time and removed an extremely large cottonwood that was hit by lightning next to my ham radio tower. He was able to remove the tree with no damage to my tower or house. I had anticipated damage to either or, since there was a very large branch hanging dangerously close to one of my antennas. Mike and his crew were very professional and clean. They came by again on time to remove the stump.Thanks Again!Happy Ham
Nice job. By Wendy
I had Mike trim my trees and hedges and was very happy with the results.
Trees trimmed very happy by Heather
Hired them to do Deadwood trimming @ my House in Highland park.They gave a me a great price and were prompt on there service. The Arborist also gave me a bunch of tips on treating my trees and bushes myself instead of trying to sell me a bunch of services. All in all great company they really cared about my property. will use them again and recommend them to my friends.
Very happy customer by Lee in Wadsworth
I was referred by a friend to call Mike who is the owner of Advanced Tree care. I admit I was sceptical @ first, but after talking to him for a bit I was in amazed of his knowledge of trees. I hired him to remove a large Diseased Elm over my house. I was even more surprised when Mike himself went up in the tree to do the removal. His crew was amazing and the clean up was very good. I would recommend this company to anyone.

This company was recommended to me by the Village Arborist. They Trimmed 2 large trees for me this spring & were professional, friendly, and quite responsive. I felt their price was very fair. The trees turned out great - exactly what I was looking for and they cleaned up the site thoroughly. I would definitely use them again.Scott Northbrook
