The guys did an excellent job. Removed a 60 foot maple that was four feet from the house and hung all the way over it! Cleaned up everything as well.

The crew flawlessly took out some really tall trees next to power lines and a house. It was fun to watch these professionals execute the job.

Russ was great. Showed up on time for the bid and gave us a date for the work. He managed his crew well and gave proper expectations that the yard would be heavily damaged taking out such large trees. I would highly recommend Ostvig to anyone. 2 of the trees we had removed were hanging over the house completely and they did a great job not damaging the roof.

They provided me with the best quote out of 5 companies I had reached out to. They successfully removed all 4 massive dead Ash trees in my front yard along with grinding all the stumps. They hauled all the materials away when done. I couldn't be happier with the entire process. Thanks to Monte and the crew!

The rep I talked to to set up the tree removal was very knowledgeable and did a good job communicating everything to me.The crew showed up on time and was very careful of my yard and surroundings. They worked efficiently and did a great job cleaning up the site when they were done. Would definitely recommend!

Ostvig removed a dying tree and pruned several other trees for me. The arborist did exactly what we agreed on and the work was very high quality and professional. There was no damage to my yard and I was pleased with their work.

I have previously used this service. They did a good job on my trees, except they tore up my lawn pretty bad, but came back and put dirt down, and reseeded it. The dirt was poor quality, so we ended up with many weeds, and had to do a lot of work to get our lawn back; still not the same. This year, they accessed my neighbor's trees via our yard; it was the only way. After MANY discussions about our yard getting tore up, it was promised that they would drive on plywood, not our yard. It started out that way, but did not end that way. I took videos, in case I was called in question. They were right on our lawn, and their trucks destroyed the grass. It was also discussed MANY times prior to their job, that I did not want big trucks in my back yard. They were to be in the 'wild' area between the two houses. Not the case, as there were two large trucks in my back yard. I also took pictures, because I don't make up stories. The lawn at the top of our hill was ruined, and I spent the rest of the Summer trying to get it back. Weeds have filled in, and my husband is trying to get rid of them. There is a patch in my back yard, that probably won't come back. We also had sprinkler head problems, and we even FLAGGED them ahead of time! I just paid that bill. For me personally, I will never use them again...or allow them in my yard for any reason. I didn't bother to call them again, because I talked to him enough prior to this job, and it should have been done the way he promised. I am disgusted. We take pride in our lawn; we spend the money for a lawn service for fertilization, and weed control. We also have spent lots of money keeping it watered and healthy as well. I will never recommend this tree service to anyone!!!***In regards to your response to me, that was a complete LIE! YOU said July would be a "dry time" to do it!! We are in a drought, remember? I did NOT pick the date, and I was TOLD you would protect my lawn, and you stopped driving on the plywood! Would you like to see the videos??? Your dishonesty is what bothers me more than the damage you did!!**** I see you removed your rude and inaccurate remarks. I hope in the future, you don't treat people that way. I was 100% honest, and your removal proves that. Thank you. Take care.

Ostvig did exactly what I wanted and they were professional and reasonably priced. I was amazed they were able to take down a large tree and not damage my garden or fence. They also did a great job cleaning up at the end. The staff that were here were really friendly. I've already recommended them to a friend!

Ostvig did a very good work, they were very friendly and helpful. Cleanup was good, at the end of the day, they were a little hurry to leve. They forgot a tool at my house.

They arrived first thing in the morning and immediately began work. They were fast, professional, friendly, safe and extremely well trained and equipped. Each man did a variety of the jobs required. They were not so specialized that any of them ever just stood around watching. They had exactly the right tools for the job. Nobody had to go and get anything they needed. They brought it all with them, even exactly the right sized truck to haul it all away. They protected my property and removed my trees and branches and carted everything away in one day and one trip. They left me impressed and with no regrets; good men, every one.

I encountered some challenges with a few of my trees and sought expert advice. I reached out to Monte at Ostvig, and I was impressed by his responsiveness, knowledgeable guidance, and pleasant demeanor. This is an exceptional business that prioritizes its customers and operates with integrity.

OSTVIG Tree service is awesome! They do such nice trimming and pruning work on a beautiful, really old maple tree we have. This maple tree will look amazing for the spring, summer, and fall. We had sad to say an oak tree die. When they took it down, they piled all the lambs and debris so nicely for us to be able to manage and take care of! They are so courteous and do a fabulous job, thank you!

I had 2 trees ash trees removed and ground down. They responded quickly to my initial call and estimate. Tree removal was delayed until required winter restrictions were over.They left the yard a lot better condition than they came. No additional work is needed by me.They removed trees very professionally. I would gladly use them again for future tree work.

Ostvig did an excellent job of removing a huge old oak in our back yard. They scheduled it to our wants & were there right on time. Virtually everything about their service was excellent, with cooperative employees.On the same trip, they trimmed a number of other trees well and cleaned up thoroughly.Their bid was reasonable and we feel that we got great service.

This crew is legit!!!! When I first moved into my house I had several dead/dying trees removed by a different company and although they did a fine job, they were incredibly expensive.

Every member of the team at Ostvig Tree Care was knowledgeable, responsive and professional from the first assessment, through the two days when different crews were at our house to all of the follow up. I couldn’t recommend them more and already know I’ll be hiring them again for round 2. I took a chance on a cold call from an google search and it really paid off. Great service and fair prices – you can’t ask for better.

We have trusted Ostvig for years on various projects around our property. They come out annually to trim our very large (25′ tall) arborvitae hedge and they do a wonderful job. Jon, the project manger we have worked with, always does a great job getting the right crew there to do the work as expected.

They treated for Japanese beetles on birch, trimmed a willow back to safe size and hauled old tree debris, while keeping kids safe and avoiding damage. Their charge was too low.

Review from Angie’s List

Ostvig removed a very large oak from in front of my house that was in a very precarious location in it’s proximity to the house and trimmed another oak.

Jon, was very professional, responsive and the communication was great. The removal was seamless to me.

Routine tree trimming of 4 large trees.

We have had them do our tree care for many years and have always been very satisfied with their service and communication.

So nice to have a local company with such pleasant, effective and caring service!
