Canopy has facilitated the planting of many hundreds, maybe thousands, of trees since I have been involved with the organization. People may not see them because of our busy lives, we go by too fast, but those new trees will benefit many generations to come, just as we have benefited from the trees planted by foresighted people 75-100 years ago. Canopy makes a difference and leads the way!
I was very impressed not only by the dedication and professionalism of the staff, but of the volunteers themselves. Everyone takes great pride in their contribution to this historic event. I am very pleased to have been a part of this wonderful organization and I look forward to working together again.
After the clearcutting of the oak trees on California Avenue in Palo Alto, I looked around for an organization that protects trees in Palo Alto. Canopy wasn't hard to find, and I joined it immediately. Saturday's event (the replanting of trees) convinced me that I made the right decision. Canopy shares with residents Fred and Ann Balin the credit for leading the movement to redirect the city's ill-advised replanting plan to what was finally achieved. I think everyone who wishes to prevent another fiasco like last September's tree cutting needs to get involved with their neighborhood association. I believe that if more people had been involved it wouldn't have happened. In addition, please support Canopy.
This was truly an awesome experience! I was so heartbroken, as was so many other people, to see our lovely trees go... Now, my heart is absolutely filled with such joy, gratitude and thankfulness that I was given the opportunity to give back to nature and help heal a little piece of Mother Earth! Our tree was planted directly in front of Bistro Elan and... her name is Linda! Please support her and the other trees and watch how beautifully they grow! Thank you Canopy and our lovely City! This was truly a good deed... indeed!!
Canopy organized a fun and engaging Arbor Day celebration for kids and families in Palo Alto--teaching kids and adults about the value of urban trees through simple activities associated with trees.
