Our Expert Tree Service Keeps Your Trees Growing Strong and Healthy All Year Long in Inverness, IL
Benefit from Our Experienced Tree Care Staff
Trees offer you shade, beauty, oxygen, and sometimes fruit or nuts. They stand tall in your landscape year after year. It is easy to take a tree for granted. It certainly doesn't complain!
Sometimes, trees do need help, even though it may be hard to tell that they are suffering. Whenever extreme weather hits Inverness, Illinois, whether it be drought, high winds, extreme cold, or ice storms, your trees feel the effects. Trees can also get diseases, or insects can cause havoc inside their structure. McGinty Bros.' tree service helps diagnose tree problems, protects trees from getting sick, and makes sure your trees are all maturing safely.
Tree care begins with a thorough evaluation of all your trees. We give you an estimate and plan of action. It doesn't matter if your trees look healthy or if you know they are unhealthy. Either way, we'll let you know what is best for each tree.

What is Included in McGinty Bros.' Tree Service?
Take a closer look at a few aspects of expert tree care.
Trimming and Pruning
Trimming and pruning are not the same thing. Pruning a tree keeps a tree healthier and safer as it grows. Pruning is meant to guide the tree as it matures. Trimming a tree is usually done for aesthetic reasons. It makes the tree look nicer, or less overgrown. There are proper times of the year to trim and prune, and our tree care staff will make sure to schedule your tree pruning and trimming at the appropriate times. Feel free to call us at any time of the year. We can plan ahead.
Doing your own tree trimming and pruning is not recommended because it can be a dangerous job. We use our special equipment to ensure the job is done correctly and safely.
We only trim oaks and elms during the winter, which is their dormant stage. This reduces the likelihood of Oak Wilt and Dutch Elm Disease.
Saving a tree is always our first choice, but there are times when a tree needs to be removed. McGinty Bros. is a fully-insured tree removal company. We are capable of removing small trees, big trees, trees growing close to buildings, and every other kind of tree. If you have had other tree removal companies turn you down because the tree was in a difficult place, give us a call. We have the equipment and skills to remove it safely.
After the tree is down, our staff grinds the stump up to 12" below the original grade. You can use the wood chips for mulch, or we can take the wood chips away.
Disease Prevention and Treatment
Tree diseases are hard to spot in their early stages, so if you think your tree is sick, there might already be a lot of disease inside it. Our experienced tree care staff is fully trained to notice the diseases that commonly strike trees in the Inverness, Illinois area, including:
- Foliar Fungi
- Leaf Spotting
- Dutch Elm Disease (we use a DutchTrig® injection to prevent this disease)
When we evaluate your trees, we'll let you know if we spot any diseases, and we'll come up with a treatment plan. The best way to keep disease away from your trees is to prevent them from starting. Our preventative treatment plans work well on all tree types.
Insect infestations can do a lot of damage to trees. We have insect control applications that work against many of the common bugs that invade trees in Inverness, Illinois, including:
- Leaf Miners
- Lace Bugs
- Plant Bugs
- Sap Suckers
- Box Elder Bugs
We can also apply these insect control applications around the foundation of your home.
One of the most damaging insects in our area is the Emerald Ash Borer. An emerald ash borer is a small, metallic-green beetle that kills ash trees. These insects leave tell-tale marks in the trees that they infest. Does your ash tree have:
- suckers at the base of the tree
- splitting bark
- tunnel marks beneath the bark
- D-shaped exit holes
- woodpecker activity
- dying leaves at the tree's crown
If your tree is infested with emerald ash borers, call us right away. Early detection is vital to saving the tree.
