Community Appreciation

Prunee B. Good

Pruning Class Participant

I learned so much when I scheduled a visit with a RUFF arborist as part of the Roseville Shade Tree Program.  They inspected my trees, made recommendations on better ways to water and mulch them so the roots won't cause issues, and suggested the best trees and locations to provide more shade and energy cost savings for my house.  Thank you!

City of Roseville Open Space Manager

The Roseville Urban Forest Foundation team has been a great partner helping us lead community tree plantings in our open spaces.  The events have been great for our families and communities to come together to beautify our open spaces and invest in our future tree canopies.
