A late June storm brought down our beautiful Magnolia tree. Within 18 hours of an emergency phone call to Brown, the tree had been cleared and all but the stump removed. They would remove the stump later but when we needed them, Brown responded quickly and professionally. Will use them and their certified arborist to help us with planting a new tree. We continue to receive excellent service from t...

Would have loved to work with brown however they apparently won't work in the city. I give them credit that they responded to me same day, but said they don't work this far in the city. We're far NW side bordering the burbs mind you. I emailed back to confirm they had the right address/location but no response. Would recommend they take Chicago off their service area if they don't want to so work ...

Tree has been losing leaves during summer every year for 10 years. Decided to try treatment this spring. Brown Tree came quickly and injected tree. Injection did not work - leaves getting spots, turning yellow and falling off. Brown Tree not willing to give a refund. Brown Tree says tree is at end of life. They want to take it out and replace it with another tree - would apply $100 towards removal...

Crabapple Scab is a yellowing of the leaves and then dropping of the leaves throughout the late spring and summer. At BTS we inject the trees at the required time which happens to be bud swell. Scab is very difficult to contain because it is a fungus and there is no cure for it only control and weather has more effect both positively and negatively. It is all predicated on the amount of rainfall a...

Very good communication during quotation process and adjusting things as needed. Price was not the lowest nor the highest among the quotes I received but they gave the most confidence in their explanation of the work to be done. They addressed things that other companies did not even mention as possible concerns and took care of scheduling the marking of utilities ahead of work being performed. Ac...
