About Winkler Tree & Lawn Care

Founded in 1975, Winkler Tree & Lawn Care has grown to be one of the largest comprehensive tree and lawn care companies in the Chicagoland area. In addition to being Illinois’ first nationally accredited tree care company by the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA), we are a member of both the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and the Society of Commercial Arboriculture (SCA). Additionally, our staff includes six ISA-certified arborists in Chicago with over 100 years of cumulative experience!

As a local business, we do more than just remove and trim trees. Our Chicago arborist and plant care experts provide tree preservation services, such as root and/or crown pruning, that can be performed as regular maintenance, or can assist in minimizing impact to trees during construction projects. We also offer fertilization programs, disease treatments, and lawn grub control programs in Chicago that can protect your trees from disease and/or invasive insects.

In addition to our tree and shrub services, we also provide a complete line of lawn care services which include turf aeration and fertilization programs. These include grub and mosquito control services in the Chicago area, as well as broad-leaf weed control.

Healthy looking lawns don’t happen all by themselves. Our team of expert lawn care specialists and arborists in Chicago can prescribe a fertilization and treatment package that will be tailored specifically to your property’s needs. Additionally, we will take the time to explain the circumstances that are specific to your lawn’s deficiencies. With fertilization, disease treatments, overseeding, and more Chicago area services, our arborists and lawn care specialists can help you achieve the well-manicured lawn and trees that will make your yard the talk of the neighborhood.

I called Winkler to take down two trees that were too close to our house. They came out the next day and sent the estimate immediately. The job was scheduled quickly and the crew arrived on time and finished it in record time. Highly professional business and I highly recommend them.
