Reviews for Palmetto Professional Tree Service


Vicki Wilkerson Gibbins

 "The word "professional" is the best word to describe this business. They are EXTREMELY knowledgeable about taking down trees, pruning, and removing debris, and they did it at a lower cost than the guy I used to use. After an ice storm a few years ago, one of my trees was devastated.  These guys came out and pruned the tree, and now, no one can even tell how badly it was damaged. "

"I was there when they took down (my friend's) tree. Large tree overhanging the house . Very deliberate planed and careful tree removal. Every thing that I saw take place was driven by the thought to protect the home and yard. The only thing I saw hit the roof were a few leaf clusters and saw dust. He is a good climber and takes the time to do the job right and safe."

Danielle White
