The team thinned and reduced my tall trees in a very tricky spot to open up the view. They looked great, was done quickly, no mess, no damage, good value and a job well done!

On 10/13 I initially contact Steve and his wife for a project at my townhouse in Lincoln Park. They were both incredibly friendly and responsive, so we immediately scheduled an assessment for the following morning, 10/14. Steve showed up right on time, explained my options, and gave me a quote for $750, which was a very reasonable price compared to other estimates I'd seen online. We then scheduled the work for 10/18. Again, Steve and his team showed up right on time and gave me a call 30 mins before arrival. They had blocked off three hours for the work and finished in under two hours. The whole project was done five days after I'd initially contacted them- wow!
There were two large (~30') poplar trees on my back patio, which is surrounded by a high brick wall. The tree closer to my home was ripping up the roof and blocking natural light, so I had it removed. The second tree needed to be trimmed since it was unbalanced from growing into the other tree, had dead branches, and had lower branches that would eventually interfere with the brick wall and townhouse. This job was a more complicated than a typical yard removal/trim since the only access to my patio was through my living room.
They were able to perform all of the work through a combination of using the side alley and my patio. All areas, including the street and sidewalk, were completely cleaned afterwards. They also did a great job managing the falling branches to avoid any damage to utility lines, my HVAC unit and my patio.
I HIGHLY recommend Ajax Tree Service. They were incredibly professional, knowledge and skilled.

Our neighbor's tree in the back yard was really overhanging our yard and dropping plenty of leaves, and blocking a lot of sun from our garden. Needless to say, there was a lot of branches that needed to come down. We paid $750 for the whole job.
Steve and his team trimmed the tree really well. These guys know what they're doing. Large branches are tied to ropes for a controlled fall, so you don't have to worry about damage.
Steve's wife was really friendly and chatted with us during the job, everyone was rather friendly come to think of it!
They cleaned up everything after too, including raking the yard, and using a leaf blower, even cleaned up the alley.
Overall very satisfied.
One very important tip: Call to follow up a day before the appointment. Steve is a busy guy, and can be a bit forgetful, and may not show up, especially if an earlier job runs late.
As long as you make a point of following up once (or twice to be safe) you'll be glad that you did, because I don't think any company can do a better job!

I had 1 large tree and 3 large bushes removed at my home in Logan Square. Excellent communication, service, and price. I would recommend AJAX.
I asked for prices from 4 other companies. AJAX was the first to respond and had the best price. I'm very happy with my decision.

I found AJAX Tree while doing a Google search. I called, and Steve answered right away (something I wasn't able to get with 2 other places I called). We needed to have (2) arborvitae trees removed from the front of our house, and Steve said he'd be able to come the next day.
He was great to work with, timely, and did it for a good price. I'd definitely recommend Ajax tree services.

I reached out to Ajax for the removal of 3 pines and the stumps.
From start to finish, it was great to work with the personable Steve. I was given a fair estimate the day I called while at work, and 3 days later Steve and his crew came out and did a fantastic job.
The job was done thoroughly and efficiently. In a couple hours the job was done and everything cleaned up. No complaints, and I will not hesitate to recommend their services.

Steve and his company cut two trees and trimmed another one. They came out on time, did a quick and thorough job and cleaned up after themselves.
And the offered me a price better than the other three companies I spoke with...

Steve was very easy to work with. He was able to answer all of my questions and get the job done fast. I think he charged a fair amount for the work I had done. I needed 2 trees removed from my backyard, and he was able to get it done within 90 minutes.
I highly recommend them.

I had a tricky tree extraction and had contacted three tree specialists, recommended via word of mouth, and each turned me down or didn't respond. I called Ajax Monday morning; within an hour I had a price and agreement for the work to be done the following day.
It was not an easy job, because the root ball had to be removed by hand, with a pick ax, from a small space on a narrow city lot. No damage to other trees or wood-sided raised bed. Crew showed up on time, polite, left work site tidy. Bravo! Highly recommend.

Nearly instant gratification. I called on Monday and my overgrown tree bushes were removed Tuesday - they even blew the leaves out of my front yard!

I was debating whether I needed my two trees trimmed or removed in Old Town. Steve was great to work with, incredibly knowledgeable, and he takes the time to provide thorough explanations and answer all your questions. When you call someone either picks up or calls back right away, very professional and courteous.
We ended up having the trees trimmed and Steve, his wife, son, and whole crew did exceptional work - they really know what they are doing! When they were gone there was not a trace left that anything had happened except two beautifully trimmed trees! Would highly recommend.

I never write reviews, but Steve and his team deserve to be recognized for their amazing work!
I used Steve about 5 years ago to cut down a humongous tree in my backyard that I was afraid would fall down on my rooftop deck and pergola with any bad storm. His team was swift, professional and very reasonably priced.
So when I needed to have more trees trimmed (actually the rental property next to us whose trees were extending onto my yard/ house) I immediately called Steve.
He came out (even on Sunday afternoon!) and already Monday morning the work is completed! Professional and swift. Cleaned up everything- my property and the neighbors. Great price and so nice!

Ajax was great! Steve and his wife were very attentive from the moment I called them to get a quote until the job was complete! Very reliable- always on time, excellent communication, and very open about their insurance coverage. Fair, reasonable, honest quotes. Took care of business in a timely manner and made sure neighbors
yards were cleaned up before they left.
Ajax managed to do the job without any complaints or hesitations although they were working with a tight alley, small entrances / exits to property, and a small Chicago lot sandwiched between 2 large buildings.
Would use/recommend them again in a heartbeat!

Steve and his crew did an excellent job removing a large horse chestnut tree from our backyard and timing a poplar tree from our front yard. Steve was responsive, friendly and his crew worked extremely efficiently while providing us a great price. I highly recommend Ajax for any tree services.

These are the best guys out there!
I contacted a few people for quick quotes. Steve and his team got back to me right away - the first ones actually. They came out the next day and he quoted the project right then and there.
We went with Steve and his team because they are insured, their prices were right, and it's a family business and I'd rather my money support a Chicagoland family business.
We had 1 old pine tree removed, another pine trimmed and a neighbor's tree that was reaching into our yard trimmed.
The work was done quickly and they cleaned EVERYTHING! You could even barely notice a tree had been taken down that afternoon.
A great business to work with.

These guys are great!! I had a huge dying Ash tree and they removed it (with clean up) in 2 hours. Very professional, polite and efficient - amazing process. Steve was awesome and it looks like this business is going on 4th generation of family owned and operated (his son is working with him now). Highly recommend if you need a tree trimmed or removed.
They were recommended to me by a friend that had them remove 2 trees--once by Steve's dad and once by Steve and was very happy with their service. My friend is a horticulture professor--what better recommendation could you ask for!

Ajax responds quickly and provides excellent service! We had a tree with limbs that had fallen after a large storm. Ajax came out the same day to provide a quote and assess the damages. They returned the following day to remove all limbs and cut the tree back. Fast, reliable service! Highly recommend.
