Great Lakes Tree Service is the ultimate professional tree service company. They removed nearly 30 large oak trees from my residential yard in one day and left the lawn in almost better shape than when they arrived. They did an excellent job of cleanup after the removals. I would highly recommend this team to anyone needing professional tree services.”
