Summer greetings from Canopy! We hope you're enjoying the rainy weather. If not, take comfort in knowing that our trees are grateful!
Young trees require extra care, especially regular watering, to ensure their survival in the urban environment. Each year Canopy volunteers and partners comb through Palo Alto neighborhoods to survey the health of young street trees.
Canopy's annual Young Tree Care Survey begins on July 9th, and we need your help to check the health of young trees. See details below. If any volunteers are under the age of 16, please list your age so we can plan teams accordingly.Forward to anyone who might enjoy volunteering.
Please RSVP to take a two-hour walking survey of young trees in Palo Alto:
