2016 Tree Heroes
C.K. McClatchy Award
David Robinson has been selflessly serving the Davis community forest for over 30 years. David’s passion for Davis' tree canopy shows in his work to keep young trees alive and to protect established trees by educating people in the community on the benefits of trees through his work on the Tree Commission, and at Tree Davis events.
Austin B. Carroll Award
Sacramento Association of Realtors
The Sacramento Association of REALTORS® has a long and rich history
in greening neighborhoods throughout the region. SAR understands and
promotes the value of increasing tree canopy in every neighborhood.
Increased property values, neighborhood desirability, curb appeal and
beautification are compelling reasons why REALTORS® love shade trees.
Growing Greenprint Award
City of Woodland
The City of Woodland promotes the importance of improving community-wide tree canopy to provide environmental, economic, public health, and aesthetic benefits. The City actively invests in the Community’s trees, directly and through close collaboration with the Woodland Tree Foundation. In 2005, city leaders voted to become founding supporters of the Tree Foundation’s regional Greenprint initiative. The City of Woodland has truly earned its tagline as the ‘city of trees’.
Two tremendous examples of the worthiness of our urban forest were recognized in 2016: the tree canopy shading Mackey Road in Elk Grove and the Legacy valley oak at the Sacramento Zoo.
