An enormously special thanks to the astonishing woman who takes such excellent care of everyone both customers and employees.

You were so patient, knowledgeable, informative, sweet and helpful to me when I called as well as when you called me. It felt like I was talking to a kindred spirit or a close friend.

It is such a pleasure to send a special thank you to the woman who keeps everything going at Backridge Tree Service. The lady behind the scenes who keeps it all working. You are, I am sure, a formidable woman and the key component and heart of Backridge Tree Service.

Thank you for all you do.

Yesterday, I was blessed to experience a fantastic feeling of satisfaction and joy with a job well done, in a timely manner by exceptionally skilled and talented gentleman. Yes, each an everyone of the* "gentleman*" I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with from Backridge Tree Service was indeed a gentleman of the highest caliber.

It is the exception, not the norm, to encounter a business that performs a service, arrives at the time agreed on, does an outstanding, amazing job with such proficient, well-mannered, pleasant individuals.

The team work and organization displayed the mark of a highly capable and organized company.

Recommending Backridge Tree Service to neighbors and friends will be a rewarding satisfying pleasure.

My sincerest thanks and appreciation.

Very professional tree service company. Backridge came out and did a crown cleaning on a big live oak in front of my house. They did an incredible job and left zero mess behind them. I have some oak trees in my back yard that will need the same thing in a few years. I will most definitely be using Backridge Tree Service again. I highly recommend this company! They are first class in every way!

This is the Most Professional Tree Service company I have ever seen in Fort Walton Area. They arrived with the precision of a well planned and equipped military operation! Team members exhibited top training and followed sound safety practices in every step of the huge 30 year old water oak tree removal. Tree located in rear of property with limited access and only 30 inches from structure, Ron and crew utilized a 100 foot crane to reach over the house and systematically dismantle the 40 foot plus tree. Site restored and cleaned up perfectly and you would never know the tree and removal just occurred. HIRE Them.... you will have no regrets and the results are priceless..

Top notch with incredible attention to safety! Our community is very fortunate to have Rob and his talented team to care for our tree needs.

These guys are super professional and safe in every way. I run a tree service in Alabama and have Backridge train my people on aerial rescue and climbing techniques. This is not your average run-of-the-mill tree crew. These guys put in the time and effort to do things right and safe.

In Navarre, we have 24 live oaks. They came out with a quote and were able to come out and do the job on the day they said they would even with 20 mph winds. We were very impressed with their knowledge ane they were totally courteous. They did two walk throughs during the job to explain exactly what they were doing. They are certified arborists and even explained to us what we needed to do to get a healthier lawn. They went way abkve and beyond my expectations even for having two dozen trees. Thanks guys!!!

Very satisfied with removal of "sick" tree and grinding of stumps. Professional, knowledgeable, and safety-conscious. Quick to respond to inquiries, and quick to schedule and complete work. Thank you

Prompt, professional service. Knowledgable with sound advice. Obvious love of trees. And as my husband said "they seem to know what they are doing & they cleaned up after themselves."
