“I have used Fine Tree Care on several occasions. They have removed sick trees from my property, and saved others. They are really good at bringing out the shape of the tree so that it looks flourishing and healthy.”
“We have a small garden in Russian Hill, and have some unusual eugemias which have grown three storeys tall. Didier prunes and shapes them to give us maximum privacy. As well as being diligent and reliable, he is insured and trustworthy.”
“You’ll be very pleased you chose Didier. We’ve been using him for four years at our home in Noe Valley. He has helped us design our garden and installed several plantings, while also making our huge eucalyptus tree look better than ever.”

Don’t take those trees in your garden for granted. For many trees, San Francisco is not their natural habitat. Far from home, their roots often buried under cement, city trees need extra loving care. An unhealthy or neglected tree will eventually fall, causing thousands of dollars of damage.
Fine Tree Care is San Francisco’s leading tree care service. They specialize in all forms of tree care, from diagnosing and curing sick trees (removing them if absolutely necessary), to pruning, shaping, and training trees for maximum aesthetic and property value.
Frenchman Didier Termignon trained with some of San Francisco’s best-known arborists before starting his own company in 1996. He is a member of the International Society of Arboriculture, and a UC Berkeley-Certified Garden Designer.
“Our work is our best advertisement,” says Didier (pronounced “didyay”). ”When you look at the trees we take care of, you can see our knowledge and skill. The aesthetics of the tree – how it looks by itself, and in relation to its surroundings – is very important to me.
“We’re not the cheapest tree service out there,” Didier explains. “While my hourly rate is comparable to other companies, we tend to take more time so we can do a better job. Most of our work is in the City, but we work all over the Bay Area.
“The biggest problem we see is with people whose trees have outgrown their space and blocked their view. You could just chop the tree back, but then you’d have a horrible looking tree that is under stress. We can reshape the tree, cutting it back in a way that allows the view to come through. But you need to give the tree time to grow into its new shape.”
As well as aesthetic pruning for both views and privacy, Fine Tree Care offers disease diagnosis and treatment, thinning, cabling, crown reduction, and removal.
