What's Blooming at the Historic City Cemetery?

Visit the garden at the Historic City Cemetery for a lovely autumn “What’s Blooming Tour.”  Garden enthusiasts will point out the many plant species which thrive in the Sacramento Valley.  Park across the street from the cemetery and assemble in the front parking lot.  The tour is free; however donations are appreciated and are used for our ongoing preservation project. 

Auburn Arborist Named “True Professional” by International Society of Arboriculture

Auburn Arborist  Named “True Professional” by International Society of Arboriculture

Gordon Mann, an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist and owner of Mann Made Resources in Auburn, California, has been named an ISA “True Professional of Arboriculture” for 2011.

The True Professional recognition program honors arborists and tree care professionals for their positive impact on the industry in and around their communities. ISA President Tim Gamma paid tribute to Mann at a ceremony on Monday, July 25 in Sydney, Australia as part of the ISA Annual Conference and Trade Show, held July 23—27, 2011.

“For Gordon, it’s all about encouraging people who are doing great things in arboriculture,” says Gamma. He doesn’t focus on the problem. Instead, Gordon is looking for ways to form partnerships and find new opportunities whether it is raising money for tree research or helping a nonprofit get off the ground.”

Among Mann’s best practices as a True Professional is his effort to increase awareness and raise money for tree care.
