Winkler's Tree services specializes in treating diseased trees or trees that are impacted by invasive species or pests.

As a local tree service we do more than just trim trees and cut trees down, we also preserve trees. Even if your tree is infected, that does not mean that it must be cut down. Depending on the species of tree and type of infestation, you may be able to keep your tree and continue to enjoy the beauty and shade it provides.

Commercial and residential customers, and municipalities alike, turn to us each year to help save thousands of trees from disease. We are specialists in preventing and treating outbreaks from pests, and the infestations and destruction they bring with them to Northern Illinois. Our experts can help you identify and eradicate tree problems. 

Proper diagnosis is essential before any treatments can began. We can perform sampling and laboratory analysis to confirm the presence of pathogens. Foliar analysis is also available.
