2012 Tree Troopers Graduate

We are so proud of our 2012 Tree Troopers, and were thrilled that so many could attend graduation.  Tree Troopers were instrumental in taking their knowledge from the classes and applying it across the city by straightening trees that were knocked off axis by Hurricane Isaac.  They spearheaded volunteer groups and straightened approximately 100 trees.  Thank you!
