Canopy runs a bit under the radar, so it's nice to see this story help spread the word about them. Especially in these turbulent times, it's great to have a widely supported cause that enables us to act locally.

We found out about them about 4 years ago. Even though we had never really thought about trees before, Canopy (along with the City of Palo Alto) provides a great safety net for newbies, and we ended up getting a streetside tree through them. Their annual checkup visits with notes on condition, and a bit of pruning, helped us not to worry too much, and the City of Palo Alto's occasional midnight water tanker truck visits ensured the tree would live through its first hot summers.

Yay Canopy!
