Review for Canopy, Palo Alto,, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Canopy is a fantastic organization for keeping our area more green! As in tree coverage!
They reached out to our neighborhood association about planting more trees in our area as there had many tree removals due to new construction. We worked with Program Manager Elise who was enthusiastic and super organized. Canopy offered our neighbors a wonderful program to get free trees planted in our yards. Elise made appointments with each interested neighbor to do a tree consultation where they figured out which types of trees to plant where. Canopy also organized the planting volunteers so our neighbors didn't have to lift a finger to get the selected trees planted in their yards!

Our neighborhood also used the tree planting as an opportunity to organize a potluck afterwards for both volunteers and neighbors. As a result we got more trees for our neighborhood and a neighborhood social. Win-win!
