Weed & Brush Clearing in Oakland & Surrounding Areas

Got brush? We'll handle it.

We specialize in clearing overgrown yards and vacant lots.

Oakland Hills did a great job clearing the brush on our large hillside! I really appreciated their transparency and willingness to work with my budget by both prioritizing where/how to clear and being thoughtful about who they were scheduling to do the work. They were professional, timely, and communicative through the whole process. I will definitely use their service again next year!
