• BCS Tree Service FAQs in Glen Carbon Illinois

    Tree service is not something that every homeowner deals with regularly. You can own your home for a lifetime without ever needing the help of a tree care professional or asking one of the FAQs below. With that in mind, many people have a question about what type of service they need, the cost, and other factors that affect who they’ll choose to do the work. Read the FAQs below about our services, and always feel free to contact our staff for any additional information that you need!

  • How Much Does Tree Service Cost?

    Tree services are not one-size-fits-all. The price of tree services depends on the size of the tree, the number of trees, the species, and the work that needs finishing. The more work, the more it’s going to cost you.

    What Equipment Will Need to Be Used?

    The equipment also depends on the work that is being done. At BCS, we have all the tools needed to remove trees from big to small. Our equipment includes trucks, bucket trucks, cranes, and lifts that help us remove even the tallest trees. We also have tree climbers that help avoid damaging any of your property to provide service. We won’t bring equipment on to your property unless we need to.

    Will There Be Anything Left?

    When we remove a tree, the only thing left is the stump. We can also provide stump grinding to rid your yard of the tree entirely. Our professional teams will never leave any debris or sticks in your yard. Everything will appear as we found it – minus the trees, of course!

    What Happens to the Tree?

    We completely recycle all trees by making wood chips out of any trees or limbs that we take from your yard. We can even cut more significant pieces for you to split for firewood if you please.

    What Is an Arborist?

    An arborist has specialized training in the art of caring for trees. At BCS, we employ arborists that have certification from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Certification ensures they have an intimate knowledge of trees, tree species, treatments, and best care practices.

    How Do I Know a Tree Needs to Go?

    Tress should be removed when they are a hazard to yourself or others, they’re damaging your yard or plumbing system or if they’re infringing on someone else’s property. At BCS, we’ll provide an honest evaluation of your tree problems and recommend the service that suits your needs!

    When Is the Best Time of Year for Tree Pruning?

    Tree pruning depends on the type of tree. BCS understands the differences between species, and we can recommend time and frequency of service.

    Do You Remove Large Trees?

    Yes. We do remove large trees. Large trees require special equipment and knowledge. We use a crane to remove even the tallest of trees.

    Is Tree Topping a Good Idea?

    Many people use this method to control the growth of their trees. However, it can damage the growth of the tree and make it structurally weak. It’s a much better idea to have a professional prune the tree to ensure proper growth.

    Do You Use Spikes?

    Our company does not use spikes to climb trees. Spikes can harm the trees, and we would never do that to one of your trees.
