Will and his team do what they promise. Professional work and they clear up the yard pretty well when the job is done. Will pointed out a tree that was dying and a threat to fall in a neighbors yard, and removed it... Thank you

They work hard, and clean up after themselves
City & State: Eldersburg, MD

This is the 4th time we’re used Oak Hill for tree removal. I won’t call, trust or use any other service (did that once, with regrets). They’ve had to remove trees that overhung our house, our storage shed, our driveway, and even some valuable ornamental trees. NEVER have they made an error during any of these tough assignments!! And the job today involved all 4 challenges! (House, shed, driveway, & mature valuable trees). Perfect performance as always! Will Rash, the Owner, knows what he’s .doing, trains his crew very well, and keeps you informed. They work hard, and clean up after themselves as if it were their own homes! I now never call anyone else. Thanks Will & Team !!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Have used OHW several times and always had a great experience

I highly recommend them
City & State: Mt Airy, MD

Oak Hill has been my go-to tree service for over a decade now. Always on time, they do exactly what's asked, and clean up better than any of the other tree services I've seen. They even put down matting to prevent damaging the lawn! I highly recommend them.

I would highly recommend
City & State: Eldersburg, MD

I would highly recommend Oak Hill Tree Service. They do a superb job in a very fast time: ten trees in a day and a half. Their estimate was the best. I was very impressed that they were able to save the cedar arbor that was intertwined with Wisteria and the oak tree they took down. They filled the holes in the lawn and reseeded. Will Rash was very professional and took the time to answer my questions.

Excellent job by Will and his crew...again!! I have used OHW 4 times now and everytime they show up on time do a professional job and clean up like they were never there. 5 Stars and would highly recommend them.

Very professional
City & State: Woodbine, MD

We would highly recommend this company. Very professional. We had 4 large pines taken down. When Will and his crew left it was like the trees were never there. We sure won't miss picking up all those pine cones! Oh yeah they took all those too!

Professional, Reliable, and Reasonable
City & State: Sykesville, MD

We have used OHW twice, so far, and they were awesome! The first job required the use of a crane and OHW's quote was less than another company’s quote without a crane. On that job, they craned a tree overtop of our house and took all necessary safety precautions to assure there was no chance of the tree dropping on the house. Seeing this operation convinced us we were going to use OHW for any future tree work - and we did. The second job showcased the expertise and skill of their climbers. They had to set-up several ropes to safely bring down a dead tree leaning on another tree. The lead climber (crew boss) developed a plan, briefed us on the plan, and he and his crew carried it out flawlessly. Will and his crews are knowledgeable, professional, reliable, and respectful of your property.

Will definitely use again
City & State: Sykesville, MD

I was very impressed with the removal of a dead 60' pine tree adjacent to an outbuilding. Nothing was damaged in the process and I was surprised how quickly it was done. The crew did a great job cleaning up afterwards. Was like nothing happened other than the tree was gone! Will definitely use again in the future and refer OHW to those that need a similar service.

City & State: Woodbine, MD

I have been using OHW for the last 6 years, I live on a wooded lot and need to have a couple trees taken down every year or 2. Very professional with excellent workers and equipment. When they are done and cleaned up, you can hardy tell they were ever here. 5 stars!!

Can’t recommend them enough
City & State: Sykesville, MD

OHW did an amazing job removing several VERY large oak and maple trees from my property in Carroll County, and my parents use them regularly to manage their 7 acre wooded property in Howard County. They are prompt, professional, reasonably priced and quick!! Can’t recommend them enough!!

Great job on large and small
City & State: Mount Airy, MD

Will and his Calvary of trucks, equipment, crane and crew showed up and did an efficient job in removing two huge 4-5 foot diameter silver maples, which were decaying and way too close to my house, plus numerous other older trees removed which were impairing power lines.

Efficient and safe removal. Everything cleaned up Many thanks

Professional, responsive and a great value
City & State: Westminster, MD

3 different properties, 6 trees total. They were awesome! Professional, responsive, great value and when they left not a trace was left behind. Other than the trees being gone. Will definitely call again for all our future tree work.

Always on time, considerate, and professional
City & State: Eldersburg, MD

I have used Oak Hill numerous times for a the variety of tree issues. Will and his men are always on time, considerate, and professional. They always clean up and leave the yard in great shape. There work is high quality and value added. I have recommended them to many people who have asked who I use for tree maintenance.

Professional and extremely reasonable
City & State: Eldersburg, MD

Oak Hill did a great job on our tree removal project. On stopping by to review the work, they gave me a proposal on spot. Several days (2-3?) after accepting their proposal, the trees were gone, the yard was cleaned and it couldn't have been easier for us. They were professional, and extremely reasonable.

The Absolute Best in the Business
City & State: Sykesville, MD

I've contracted a lot of tree service in the past and I can easily say these guys offer the BEST service and BEST pricing hands down.
Very professional, super easy to work with and they did an excellent job from start to finish. I will be calling them again! Thank you OHW

I am "pining" over this company!
City & State: Columbia

From start to finish, this company stood out from the forest of smaller companies that charged taller prices or couldn't even compete as they didn't have the equipment needed. The woman who answered the phone was pleasant as could be and assured me that they could have a free quote done quickly. Owner Will Rash came out himself to give the quote (and I think a quote was waiting on my car windshield the next morning; he didn't even wake us to give it to us but texted it where it was, which was considerate of him). While one company noted their insurance on their letterhead and I don't think a third company even did that much, Oak Hill left us a copy of proof of insurance. I used to be in the insurance business, and insurance is important to me to see proof of, so that scored extra points. Will was also pretty quick to respond to texts.

Another company's contract included a $39 charge for calling Miss Utility (which is a free call and free service) and B.S. charges like that don't make me want to utilize the business. Will, you will be happy to know, told me he would be calling to have the utilities marked without my even asking him to, and he didn't charge us and extra for that effort of his part.

Will called for my credit card number for the deposit (and we had a check ready to hand to them for the balance when they did the job, but nobody asked for it - maybe due to COVID?) and we never had to get up close to anyone at any time for this project if we hadn't wanted to (I opted to get close just to give each of them a blueberry scone fresh out of the oven and encourage others to treat the men well as they treated us well and will you, too).

Our huge pine trees (towering way above our house) were only 16 feet from our house and right up against the deck. They took care to have everything fall in a safe manner. They used what appeared to be top of the line equipment from the trucks (at least three used for this job) to the cranes to the stump grinder and so on. They worked to fix holes in the lawn made from heavy branches and tree trunks coming down and they cleaned off the deck. They arrived at the time we were told by Will they would be here, they took a half-hour lunch break promptly at 11:30 AM and went right back to work.

They also seemed to enjoy their work. One seemed to be almost dancing at one point. I heard joking banter when one huge truck was too thick for the crane to pick up without it being cut down some, and I like hearing a team that can playfully tease back and forth and is happy. Makes me suspect Will takes good care of his employees.

My brother had used this company a few times over a decade ago, when he lived in Maryland, and he recommended him to his daughter who never used them, but did pass the name along to me, and I am so glad she saw my Facebook post asking if anyone had a service to recommend. I wish this company also did home remodeling as I would start with them for bids on that! Will, if you are reading and know any good home remodeling companies in our area, feel free to recommend away! 🙂

But I digress...in short, this company made short work of removing two huge pines close to our house plus getting a Columbia Association tree that fell onto our lawn cut up and tossed back into the woods (as other companies also said they would do; not sure why nobody seems to remove them with the live trees cut down, but maybe it is just much quicker). Start to finish for the job with six men: 5 hours (4.5 if you take out their lunch break). My husband and I were both impressed. Give them a try as I suspect you will be impressed, too.

Extremely professional
City & State: Eldersburg, MD

Fantastic Job
City & State: Eldersburg

OHW completed a fantastic job for us! We had 20 trees thinned and shaped plus a mature oak and maple removed and the stumps ground on a one acre site and Will's crews did an absolutely incredible job. OHW has all the right equipment to complete every tree related task we've had. Their crews are professional, friendly AND they rake and clean up every stick and limb. This was the 3rd time they've worked for us over 20 years and we will be continuing to use them in the future. Well done, OHW and Will! Highly recommend them!

Would recommend them over and over again
City & State: Eldersburg, MD

Will and his crew were fantastic! He came out promptly to do an estimate, and after a few other quotes, I decided to go with him on the spot, based on quality of the assessment and price. We had a date for the service in mind, but Will called me 2 days later with availability for his team to come out. They removed 3 trees and trimmed 9 others. They worked so quickly and my yard was cleaned up with no debris left. I would recommend them over and over again!!

Professional Tree Service at it's Best
City & State: Sykesville, Md

Honesty, Integrity and Professional Tree Service right here in Carroll County Md. We knew from the time Will came out for an estimate they were the tree service for us. We did our due diligence and had another estimate, but didn't feel comfortable with the company. We had two dying spruce and a 110 year old poplar removed. The spruce were completely finished in 20 min. The poplar was huge. Will did an amazing job in trimming the limbs. His crew on the ropes and removal of debris were extremely efficient. So impressed with their work! Will is a true arborist and has a wealth of knowledge. My husband and I were impressed from estimate to completion. They're incredible to watch!! I can't tell you how many videos and photo's I took. Give them a call!! You won't be disappointed!!

 by George Dillner
Very satisfied

We were recommended to Oak Hill through a friend who has used them for many years. We had used another service a few years back that was much higher priced and did not do a great job. Our friend was right about Oak Tree!! Reasonably priced, professional and did an awesome job quickly. They removed five large trees and trimmed a couple others and cleaned up our property very nicely.

 by Nick M
Great company and will use again
City & State: Sykesville

Awesome job. Will and his team removed 8 trees, ground 3 of the stumps and removed a big pile of branch debris that I had accumulated over the last year. Some of the large trees were near my house and electrical supply boxes. All the work was done quickly and professionally. Prior to having the work done, I researched a dozen companies and contacted 5 of them that had good reviews. Three of those provided quotes and I selected OHW based on their price and the first impression I got from Will during the estimating. Any of my future tree work will go to OHW.

Fantastic in every respect
City & State: Woodbine, MD

Fantastic in every respect! They removed two large trees, reduced and crowned seven others, and removed 25' of bushes and stumps. The price was the lowest with the highest level of quality, safety, and professionalism. I will always use OHW and recommend others do too!

Great job at a fair price
City & State: Woodbine, MD

They did a great job for us at a super fair price. We had three trees removed and two stumps shaved down (under ground). The pricing was better than the other two quotes we received & the services were performed just 5 days after we contacted them. A friend of mine referred them after having a similarly positive experience. We’ll definitely use them in the future if we have tree service needs.

Amazing work
City & State: Sykesville, MD

The Oak Hill crew did amazing work. They arrived exactly on time and were professionals beginning to end. I had many questions that I neglected to ask during my free estimate and Steven (foreman) was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this company. Looking at the ground around the trees we had trimmed, you can't even tell they were here. The way it should be. Will be using them again in the Spring.

Nothing short of spectacular
City & State: Eldersburg, MD

Oak Hill Wood is nothing short of a spectacular company. While walking our property for the estimate I had many questions about tree types and the work that needed done. Will the owner was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. When his team arrived to perform the work they were like a well oiled machine. I needed numerous trees trimmed, a huge maple completely removed including the stump, a magnolia trimmed where my electrical service comes through the tree (they clear cut a hole in the tree so branches don’t touch the lines), cut a few trees down that we’re leaning on our barn. I had instructed to leave any hard woods that are fireplace safe. His team cut all the hard wood into manageable lengths for splitting and piled them exactly where specified. When his team was wrapping up they check in with me to make sure all the work performed was to my liking. When they left all debris and branches were totally cleaned up. They even spread grass seed where the heavy equipment was used. You really cannot ask for a better company to provide all your tree service needs. I will definitely be using them in the future.

I will recommend OHW to all my family and friends. They removed three huge trees for an amazingly low price. They were prompt, arriving the exact day stated at the bid.

Job well done!
City & State: Woodbine, MD

Believe the hype! I needed some tree work done and met with Will to go over everything. Arrived on time, courteous, professional and sounded like he knew what he was talking about! Wrote up a very reasonable estimate on the spot. Tried to arrange several other estimates but they were so backed up just for the estimate that we decided to go with Oak Hill strictly on all the great recommendations! Well they just left the job and we couldn’t be happier! That was a LOT of work for the price we paid and things turned out better than we hoped. Looks like all the recommendations were warranted. Thanks for everything Will! Job well done!

Another Great Job!
City & State: Finksburg

Just had OHW come out to take down some big trees. They have done numerous jobs for me over the years. Both take downs and general tree maintenance. They are prompt, professional, fairly priced and use the best equipment. The crews work efficiently and leave the area clean. I highly recommend them!

 by Neil De Francesco

OHW Inc has done tree work for me many times over the last 20 years. Will Rash is extremely professional & knowledgeable.
His company maintains some of the latest tree maintenance & removal equipment and his employees are well trained & courteous. If you are in need of any tree work, I would suggest giving him a call.
His prices are very competitive and when they finish, they leave your property immaculate.

 by Angie's List Review
top quality work at a fair price
City & State: Elkridge, MD

Perfect. The price was very reasonable ($920), considering that the trees would have crushed a fence or pool equipment if not taken down carefully and from the tops using ropes. I've used this company before and they are always timely and friendly while doing top quality work at a fair price.
