The great windstorm that upended Springfield and Sangamon County early in the afternoon of June 29 that left thousands of people without power also left thousands of branches and trees in unwanted places — and that's a kind way of saying it.
"We had 97 calls within the first four hours after the storm for trees on or in homes throughout our community," says Chad Fowler, owner of Sangamon Tree Service. "Our entire team worked overtime to meet the demand, and we even upped our office staff."
Launching this business in May 2020 "with a mission to change tree service as our community knows it," Fowler's priority for customer service and quality service was the responsive antidote that area residents and businesses needed this summer. "We will be trimming trees damaged from that storm for many years to come," Fowler adds.
He says his business is prepared to respond in emergencies or if people or businesses just need their trees maintained.
"We're beyond thrilled to win this title from Illinois Times, and to win it two years in a row is even more humbling," Fowler said. "We put a high standard on our service, and when we are rewarded for our hard work, it makes it all that much better."
