“Mary Ann’s company was working across the street from my house. I needed some tree work done so I went over to meet them. The workmen said they would call her. Not very long after, she showed up at my house. I described some major surgery on one tree, cutting dead branches on two other trees, and grinding 2 stumps. She took notes as we talked. She immediately calculated a price which was quite acceptable. Her workmen finished the job quickly and cleaned up after themselves. I am quite pleased with her company’s work, and will be using them for tree and stump work exclusively in the future.”

The crew worked very hard in the summer heat and humidity. They cut down and removed 5 huge dead ash trees and cut down and removed one medium and one large stump. It was a big job! They also cleaned up the branches and bark chips. We were sad to see the Ash trees go but our wooded lot looks much better now. We have used Merriman in the past and recommend them. We have always been very satisfied with the work and the crew. A special thank you to the crew for working in such hot and humid conditions.

Very professional! Reasonable, quick, clean and great communication.

Merriman did a great job grinding down our stumps. Their worker was courteous, conscientious and worked hard. He did the job very quickly and thoroughly, and cleaned up very well. Good work at a fair price. We’ll use them again.

This letter is to commend you and Merriman Tree for the excellent job you did for us removing three large Ash trees under adverse weather conditions. Your crew of fine young men were helpful and hard working. It was a pleasure to have them here. In addition, they did an excellent clean-up of the work site. We would be pleased to recommend Merriman Tree to our friends.

Merriman Tree Service arrived when they said they would, very professional, they performed all the contracted services (removal of multiple large trees, grinding of stumps and trimming of trees) all to my satisfaction. They did a very nice job of cleaning up. 

04-01-14 – Ryan C. 
Each time they have done work for us we have been delighted with the service. They do the job with minimal fuss and mess. You would never even know they had been in your yard (except for our tree was gone!). They are also extremely reasonable with their prices. The time a huge limb fell in a storm we tried to get some local firms to come and take it away thinking it would not be expensive but we were quoted outrageous prices and I called Merriman again to see if they could do it. They came the very next day and were so reasonable. Mary Ann is a really nice lady to deal with too. Trees are expensive, but I would give the business to this company any day of the week. 🙂 


12-22-13  – James L. 
Service provided was professional and equipment (crane, shredder) proper for the job and in good condition. They did everything they were contracted to do, the best thing was how professional and COURTEOUS the team was. They cleaned up better than I expected and had proper insurance and references. Will use them again for similar work.

Merriman Tree Service did a great job! The work was great and the team is very honest and fair. Would definitely recommend Merriman to anyone that needs tree work!


11-6-13  – Chrystel B.
We just had you out to cut down one of our ailing 45-year-old oaks, and I was out of town and my husband was at work while you were here. I’ve never seen my yard that clean! You guys did an amazing job and we will definitely be having you back to help us care for the other trees! Thanks!


10-30-13  – Karen G.
I had a dead ash tree positioned on a hill, close to and leaning towards a busy road. I had several estimates to remove the tree, one company even turned the job down because of the position of the tree and the size of it. I was so happy I chose Merriman. They scheduled my tree cutting shortly after receiving the signed contract back from me. I was very pleased with the job – the employees were very professional and courteous and completed the job in the time stated. I was most impressed with the cleanliness of the site after the job was done! I would highly recommend Merriman Tree ‘n Stump and would have them return to do more work on my property.


10-29-13  – Kristen A.
I have had a wonderful experience working with Mary Ann! All the work that was discussed upfront was competed exactly how we talked about. The crew was very professional and punctual. The job site was cleaned up very well after the job was completed. Mary Ann has been very pleasant to work with and I would recommend her company to anyone who is looking for tree service!

10-15-13  – Barb B.
What an awesome company! Affordable and work done by the nicest workers!! Highly recommend this company!!

9-27-13  – Courtney R.
Mary Ann and her crew were very responsive and worked with us to make sure we were happy with their work. The crew was professional, worked quickly & efficiently. We were working against a limited timeframe (needed the work done by a certain time) and they were very flexible with us to make sure we could meet that date. Pricing was competitive and in line with the other quotes we received. Overall, very satisfied and would use them again. Thank you!

8-31-13 – Steve C.
I gladly recommend Merriman to family, friends and neighbors. Reasonable price, truly outstanding work.

8-20-13 Customer Review – Jalena P.
I had gotten an estimate from another company for 4 trees to come down back in the spring. Merriman was the best deal and the easiest to work with on the estimate. The job was done so well we had them come back this week to take down 3 more and trim the deadwood from a 4th we wanted to hang onto. The work was done quickly. The guys were very polite and eager to make us happy. We will most definitely use Merriman again for our tree removal and trimming needs.

8-20-13  – Teresa H.
I had gotten several estimates for the removal of two large trees.  Merriman’s not only gave me a great low estimate, but the job was done to my specifications!

6-23-13  – Beth and Pete D.
This is a very reliable, high quality contractor.  I had a massive tree fall in a storm, blocking driveway. Mary Ann responded immediately to have a crew clear access, then followed up to remove the tree and clean up like the incident never happened. I asked for more proposals for tree trimming, and she responded professionally and promptly, and again did excellent work.  I highly recommend Merriman.

6-4-13  – Tom F.  
You have a terrific crew of guys. They did a very good job. Friendly, polite, appreciative, attentive and hard-working young men. It is so refreshing to trip across a rare breed here in Cincinnati of a business which truly delivers on the very simple task of adequately performing its advertised service which, in the case of your LLC, truly exceeded the expectations of your customer; sometimes referred to in restaurant jargon as “giving the customer the pickle”, or that little extra. Happy that you finally got your shredder; I’m sure the men had fun on the road trip picking it up….nice perk for them….
You run a good ship, Merriman. Good job!

Merriman Tree ‘n Stump recently did some tree removal work for me. I’m very happy with the results. The whole crew was friendly and polite, and efficiently completed all agreed-upon work. I was particularly happy with the fact that they were careful not to damage other trees and plants. Will definitely use them again.

5-21-13  – Lisa P.
I would highly recommend Merriman Tree and have used them several times. On Saturday afternoon we had a very large tree fall over our driveway. I called right away and in 30 minutes they were here! Mary Ann came and worked with her crew in the pouring rain in order to give us critical driveway access!! That is above & beyond. With my husband being a veteran, we feel good about supporting this business because of their use of veteran workers. Highly recommend!!

4-24-13  – Jim R.
Merriman Tree ‘n Stump is hands down the best tree care company in Cincinnati. We have used them for tree service and landscaping and they never disappoint. They are affordable, professional, knowledgable and always deliver on time. We will not use anyone else in the future. I highly recommend using them.

3-21-13 – S. Volk via Thumbtack
We needed to have several ash trees removed from our property that the emerald ash borer had destroyed. The trees were precariously close to our home and I was nervous about them coming down onto our roof. Mary Ann Merriman came out and quoted us a great price. She sent the crew out, they removed 7 trees in one day. We couldn’t be happier with the service we received. We will definitely us Merriman Tree ‘n Stump for our tree removal needs in the future. Great price, great work, excellent value.

They gave me a very reasonable bid, and completed the work when they said they would. They cleaned up the area very well also.

2-25-13  – Allan & Lisa P. via Thumbtack
We are repeat customers and appreciate the quick, professional and neat work that they do. Not only was the area around the tree completely cleaned up, they even removed debris on our driveway. They went over and above!

1-19-13  – Robin A. 
I have used this company’s services on two different occasions. I have always had excellent service. Just this past week the trees came down one day and the stumps were ground out the next. I want to say that the two workers did a great job. They were efficient, careful of nearby plantings, and very polite and friendly. Great job! Thank you for allowing me to pay in two monthly installments. It’s a great little company and will definitely use their services in the future.

11-30-12 – Dan K.
We had a large maple in the backyard, that was in a tight spot, which we wanted removed. The crew did an excellent job at removing the tree, they were true professionals. The tree was surrounded by power lines, fences, and other vegetation, and none of the above were damaged. The crew also did an excellent job in cleaning up after the removal. Great job! Highly recommend.  

11-29-12  – Thomas R.
This company does an excellent job! They have cut down 6 large trees in my yard over the past 2 years and their work is very caring for the animals, flower beds and other trees in my yard. Give them a call….this company is competitive compared to others in the area for quality tree service.

11-29-12  – Ryan M.
Merriman Tree ‘n Stump gives “Excellent customer service and great pricing. The work was done completely and quickly. Very satisfied!  I will highly recommend in the future.”

11-29-12 – D. Fuller
They did a sensational job, not only on clean up and being careful dropping a large tree near the house as promised, but took on a skilled stump grind which was right next to our main gas line. He and his precise machine got the stump and avoided the pipe. I’m definitely using them again.

7-20-12  – William
Excellent job. Had 10 dead spruce trees taken down. The workers were very professional and courteous.. The cleanup was also great, there are no traces of the trees in the yard. The price was very reasonable. I would recommend Merriman Tree Care to anyone and plan to use them again when I need any trees removed.

5-28-12  – John
I highly recommend these folks. great price, great service and an excellent job!

5-21-12  – Christopher D., Home Services 
Dear Mary Ann, I wanted to provide feedback from client. Thanks for the attention to our mutual clients.  Per the client (Julia W.) We had a good experience with them, they were responsive and timely. We would use them or recommend them again for sure.

5-15-12  – Thomas
Merriman did a great job removing two trees and grinding out both stumps. The tree team arrived as scheduled and did the job quickly, professionally and at a reasonable price. Mary Ann was great to work with as well. I would gladly use Merriman in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone who asks. Tom in Clifton

Mary Ann and her crew are great to work with. In addition to being the most competitive, they are prompt, courteous, conscientious and overall very professional. Because of the location, a large crane was needed to do the job. They laid thick sheets of plywood on the lawn to prevent tracks. No visible tracks, and aside from the stump grindings, no debris seen after completion. A++ and highly recommended.

4-27-12  – Jen
This is the second time I have hired them; another job well done! They have also done work for my parents. I will continue to call them and recommend them to friends and family. The crew is always courteous and professional. The customer service and prices are also terrific.

3-19-12  – Ian B.
They did a very professional job with my stump removal… I would recommend them.

3-4-12  – Libby
The crew was great and very professional! The tree was taken down efficiently and they left a nice stacked pile of firewood for our future use. They also took away some extra cut brush we had sitting in our back yard and cut down a small honeysuckle stump for no additional charge. Mary Ann was great to work with from the business side and kept us well informed of the scheduling, costs, etc. Great company to work with!

Member Comments: Merriman Tree’n Stump’s price was by far the best of the quotes we got. We had a 95 year old tree cut down. They had to get it down with a crane, cut it up and haul it away. It was a pretty big job.

Hire Again: Yes, Approximate Cost: $1,800.00 Description Of Work: Removed large oak tree, grind outstump and removed all debris.

12-28-11 Member of Angie’s List: J. Terlinden, Cincinnati, OH
Hire Again: Yes Approximate Cost:$2,000 Description Of Work: Trimmed some mature trees for roof and wire clearance, removed dead branches and thinned where necessary. Also removed 3 trees and ground their stumps.
Member Comments: Very professional people from quoting to clean-up. 3 men were supposed to arrive, but only 2 showed. Both men worked very hard to complete the job in less than 2 days. One was in the trees trimming and the other, on the ground, removed the cuttings and hauled them to be grinder. Most of the debris had to be hand carried from the back of the house to the front. The trimmer climbed the trees, to be trimmed, without spikes so as to not damage them. At times he looked like a circus performer and gymnast. He only used spikes on the trees to be removed. One of the trees, to be removed, was very large and at the far back of the yard. Others who quoted the job wanted to use mechanical equipment to remove the large pieces which would have damaged the yard during the removal. These 2 men removed all without damage to my lawn. The clean-up was excellent and the yard was cleaner than before they started.  Merriman quoted the job about $1000 lower than the others.

Customer Review – Bill L
Work was quick and very professional. Would recommend them to everyone.  This consumer had a POSITIVE experience with this business. This consumer WOULD recommend the business to a friend, family member, neighbor or colleague.

Member of Angie’s list: Sharon S., Bethel, OH,
Hire Again: Yes, Description Of Work: Trimmed limbs from tree in front yard. In the rear yard, trimmed huge, old Silver Maple. Removed very large limbs hanging over neighbor’s fence and over our current fence. Also trimmed out the large crown. Tree looks very good.
Member Comments: Looked up the website and emailed Mary Ann about the work we wanted done, received a written estimate by email within a few days, very reasonable estimate. We made some minor changes to the contract. Despite cold wet weather the crew showed up within a few days and completed the work. As the ground was wet and soft they parked their equipment truck on the driveway in front. After trimming the very big tree in the backyard they took all the limbs and brush around by hand. The tree is huge and so were the limbs so this was no quick, easy job. They did a great job and cleaned up everything, even the sawdust! They are all very friendly and helpful. We have used this company in the past. They are always very reasonable and very considerate. Always do very good work! We would definitely recommend them. I don’t think you will find a better crew or a more reasonable charge for this kind of work.
