Wonderful article.

That said, the final photo caption might need to be corrected. I don't know many South Palo Alto backyards which feature garages, driveways, and streets with cars parked on them.

Perhaps the caption should read "Volunteers plant trees in THE FRONT yard of a south Palo Alto home on Dec. 4, 2021?"

Wishing Catherine all the best on her retirement. Thank you, and all of the Canopy staff and volunteers you have organized so capably for so many years, for our city's glorious canopy. I am grateful.
