How We Started

McDaniel Excavating was formally established in 2017. Trent McDaniel, the owner, was busy growing his first business, The Tree Guy – a full service tree company, when the market began to show him a need for more custom site work. In an effort to supply his customers with the work they needed done, he bought a fleet of heavy equipment and hired experienced operators to meet this growing demand. What began as small work here and there has turned into years of tailored earth forming and land clearing projects for commercial entities and farmers in the Central Ohio area.
