The City of Palo Alto urban forest has been growing in private yards and city land for more than a century. The most critical time for all of the trees has been in the last decade. The involvement of the Canopy organization with the community as well as city tree programs has filled a critical gap and continues to do so. Canopy has become a regional resource for many cities in the Bay Area because their leadership vision is broad, their services are beneficial and contractor referral services are sought after by residents, architects and cities alike.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the recent California Avenue tree removal incident. Canopy became a critical third party voice that both city staffers and residents could rely upon for an objective opinion.
