Sacramento Tree Foundation Hero AwardsOn May 29th the Sacramento Tree Foundation held the annual Tree Hero Awards. The dinner was held beneath the verdant, heritage 300 year old native oak grove at the California Farm Bureau hosted 250 attendees, including leaders of Sacramento's most influential businesses, national and state elected officials, and tree lovers from around the region. Cleaner air, healthier communities, and economic prosperity are the result of a healthy urban forest. For this reason, our region's long-term health, economic vitality and quality of life depend on investing in and maximizing the benefits of our urban forest — it depends on our commitment to trees and to those that champion them.
