Great trees define Sacramento – the City of Trees. Our citizens have been planting and tending the urban forest for over a century and the Sacramento Tree Foundation honored great contributors to our forest this year by telling their stories in a series of videos. Join us in honoring them and hearing their stories!
C.K. McClatchy Award – Desiree Backman, PhD
Austin B. Carroll Award – Putah Creek Council
Growing Greenprint Award – Sacramento Arborist Jesus Munoz, Jr.
Legacy Award – T Street Walnut
Take it a step further and visit all the Legacy Award winners around the City by using our Google Map on your phone! (The trees are on there, but we need to add a lot of other elements – let us know if you want to help!)
We hope you are inspired – there are many opportunities to carry on the tradition with the Tree Foundation from planting shade trees in your yard or street, to organizing activities for your neighborhood or school and they can certainly help guide you.
