"I needed a tree removed and several others pruned. I had a couple of other quotes before Jeff from Fine Tree Care came out. He was very thorough, very professional, and seemed to be a straight shooter. The 5 person crew came on time and they brought 2 bucket trucks, stump grinder & chipper. On the day of the job, I decided to add on the landscape trimming for the front & a second crew came over to do that. Jeff lined them up with what needed to be done & they did an absolutely wonderful job. One of my neighbors was happy to get the free wood chips & they were delivered right to her property. Everything was clean when they left." ~ Chris K., Santa Rosa CA
