Re: a Thank you from the Dockters, responding to the Canopy Board Match, Silicon Valley Gives program, connecting people with nature, like your friend, the late Nobel Peace Laureate Wangari Maathai: "When we plant trees, we plant the seeds of hope and the seeds of Peace".

Catherine &
Board: Thank you for the gratitude email to Eileen and I.

You enable us to be directly involved with nature-based programs in a way that ‘without you’ we would probably not be engaged in a similar way.

You guys are the best at what you do--seemingly always keeping things fresh, up-to-date and on pace with the technology speed of Silicon Valley.

I thank you for the leadership you have utilized thru the 2007-2014 economic season, and support you to flourish in the new season of growth for the community.

Sincerely,

David & Eileen Dockter, Canopy Contributors

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.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Arbor Day Activities.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

with professional arborists leading tree walks. Very knowledgeable and interesting docents--male and female.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Develop yearly programs and interface with unified school district children and teens; Arbor Day Poster Contest for 5th Graders. Sponsor interns

Partnering with Canopy is a pleasure and always productive. The staff and board go way beyond the call of duty to partner with other nonprofits. I have learned a lot from the experience and appreciate the expertise and generosity of the volunteers and staff.
