We have 28 fully grown trees on our one acre site that require annual maintenance and care. Ostvig Tree Service comes annually to our home and provides us a report of what will be needed, provides a quote and performs the work very well on the date scheduled. Very professional service. Did a very nice job.

We received expert advice from their knowledgeable arborist, Jon Weiss, who followed up immediately with an estimate and date for tree removal. The hard working crew arrived promptly on that date, completed the 6 hour job without hardly a break, and the clean up was amazing!
