Though the number of companies that provide tree services in the Springfield market is upwards of 65, getting a price from a local tree care company can be a challenge. I know, because I have been working with trees in the Springfield market in one capacity or another since 1983. At the conclusion of a bid or consult, potential customers will ask which companies I would recommend—those that will return phone calls and put bids in writing. As such, I have compiled a list of 5 tree-service companies that, in my opinion, are the best out there. I have also included my thoughts regarding the strengths of each company.
To the best of my knowledge, all companies below have the needed insurance, serve Springfield and the surrounding area, and have a good reputation in this market. In addition, I personally know 3 of the 5 business owners.

Ryan Lawn and Tree is located in Springfield. Their main office is in the KC area, and they have several branches in the Midwest. The list of services includes tree care, lawn care, irrigation, mulching and tree planting along with other services.

When you want one company for several items, this is a good choice.
My hope is that this helps you get a couple more bids and allows you to feel confident in your buying decision. No two trees are exactly alike, so comparing apples to apples is always a challenge.
