“Immeasurable Assistance”

My wife and I have been searching for our forever place for 5 years. We found it on Horse Island off St Helena Island. The good news is we found it. The bad news is it had been abandoned for five years and hit by two hurricanes. Southern Tree Service provided us immeasurable assistance in bringing the property back to its former stature. We cannot say enough good things about not the not just the professionalism of the crew and staff but the care they took to make our place special again,

“Attention to safety was readily apparent.”

I just wanted to send you a short note about the job just completed. Your crew was extremely professional and courteous. They diligently applied themselves to the job and completed it to my complete satisfaction. Their Attention to safety was readily apparent. It was truly a pleasure to have them take care of our job. I will be happy to enthusiastically recommend your company because of them. Again THANK YOU AND SOUTHERN TREE.

“Southern Tree Services has again exceeded my expectations.”

This is the third time over the many years I have contracted with Southern Tree and their team of experts. As before, they showed up in force precisely as pre-arranged. The Lead and his entire crew were courteous and notably careful with additional equipment to avoid property damage. This was a 3-day job and they immaculately cleaned up the entire yard area at the end of each day, including the roof and back decks over which some of the work was performed accomplished safely with impressive expertise. Thank you Southern Tree Manager, Team Lead and workers for another most excellent job. And again, I was absolutely thrilled at watching all the modern heavy equipment and this team of experts remove very large storm damaged trees with such apparent ease.

“Your crew did an outstanding job.”

Hello Ronnie: We just wanted to let you know that your crew did an absolutely

WOW.. you and your teams never fail to impress us with their professionalism, regard for our property and excellence all around.Thank you for the privilege of being one of your loyal customers! We appreciate you and Tom and all of the Southern Tree folks.

“You said what you could do, and you did it.”

I contracted with Southern Tree Services to remove four trees and clean up several others during the week of 21 Feb 2011. Up front, Southern Tree Services exceeded my expectations. Their team showed up in force precisely as pre-arranged. First thing, their team Lead prompted a meeting with me to be reassured we all had a clear idea of the work expected to be accomplished. We agreeably negotiated to remove a fifth very large tree as recommended by the City inspector, as well as comply with a couple last minute efforts my wife wanted done. The work was done safely with professional expertise. The Lead provided recommendations for some things that could also be done to improve the overall effort. Every single member of the working team was courteous and extremely careful not to damage our home, the surrounding genes and shrubbery or the neighbors’ property. Although several large trucks, grinders and a heavy duty Bobcat were in and out of the front back yards, I found it especially noteworthy that not a single one of the 50+ sprinkler heads in the yard and gardens were damaged. Thank you Southern Tree managers and team members for an excellent job. You said what you could do, and you did it. And for the record, the boy in my ‘old’ heart absolutely thrilled at watching all the heavy equipment and this team of experts work — from a safe distance. — JaM Gatch

“The Best Customer Service”

Thank you so much for the quick response to my request. To my amazement, you had someone out here first thing this morning to grind the remaining stumps. This has to be the best customer service I have every experienced since I moved to SC almost three years ago! We are fortunate to be working with you and your team who definitely care about the customer. Thanks so much. Looking forward to a continued working relationship with Southern Tree Services. — Frankie Coffman, Port Royal

“Thanks for the excellent service”

Sonya/Ronnie, The guys did a great job removing the tree, grinding the stump and dumping the little bit of mulch that was chipped up. They mentioned that they had just dumped 2 truckloads full elsewhere, which I could have used. Sorry I didn’t let you know ahead of time. Next time you are working on the island I can use more mulch for the low spots on the left side of the property. Thanks for the excellent service. I frequently recommend Southern to my friends and neighbors. You get the job done right.  — Allan Winneker

“Another Incredible Job”

Dear Ronnie and Sonya, Thank you for doing another incredible job taking out my trees. Your crew always works so well together and are so polite and conscientious. You really know how to choose your employees! They are a great bunch of hard-working young men. Thank you, once again, for doing another great job for me. — Kim Saul, Bluffton

From the heart

A Thank You From Our Hearts, We contacted Ronnie Reisett of Southern Tree Service. Despite the fact that Ronnie was away in Ohio for the weekend, he made contacts with his crew here in Beaufort. Within an hour after our call to him, two of his crew responded & removed the major portions of tree that were resting on the garage roof. This allowed Leo to place a tarpaulin on the damaged portion and hopefully minimize the overall water damage to the structure. — Bob and Pat Sheehan

Good work appreciated

Dear Southern Tree Company, We want to tell you how pleased we were with your company in today’s tree removal work. All was done as promised, by a crew who seemed to be very careful about doing it correctly. We understood this was Crew #2, with Tommy as Crew Chief. Please let him know their good work is noticed and appreciated. Thank you again, Sincerely — Donald & Donna Starkey, Beaufort

“Your guys did an outstanding job!”

Just wanted to let you know that your guys just left my house here on Polawana. They all did a very good job, but one guy even blew off my front porch and steps. It are just the little things that make a good job a great one. They went one step more and dumped all the mulch for me here at my house. In the end, your guys did an outstanding job! — John Housley
