"We are so happy for Pete, Kate and their girls on the purchase of their first home and glad that we could help clean it up on Saturday. They are such a deserving family. It was wonderful to see the community support they received. We look forward to finishing up our volunteer work in the yard and seeing the end results." - Erin Acton
FROM THE UNION.COM
Employees of a Grass Valley real estate office spent Saturday helping one family give their newly purchased fixer-upper a face lift.
The team at Re/Max organized a group of about 20 community volunteers, including workers from Acton Arboriculture, to trim trees, paint walls and pick up trash at the Alta Sierra home recently purchased by Peter and Kate Lance.
Peter Lance, 54, is a former arborist who was seriously injured in December 2013 after falling from a tree. He suffered a broken neck, which resulted in permanent reduced function and sensation in all of his limbs. Because of his injuries, Lance is generally confined to a wheelchair.
Lance said he was feeling overwhelmed by the community’s effort to help improve the home.

TASMANIA'S GIANT ASH TREES MAY BE WORLD'S TALLEST
So sad to see this tree go in our yard. It was beautiful. Beetles are tiny, but they sure do a lot of damage.
Join us tomorrow (6/7/14) for the Nevada City tree walk.
Zeno will be leading a guided tour around Nevada City discussing the many
beautiful trees that line the streets.
Meet at 9:30am at the Rood Center (950
Maidu Ave, Nevada City) and be prepared for an hour walk. Hope to see you

Proud to annouce that Zeno now has his Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ) from the International Society of Arboriculture.
This qualification promotes the safety of people and property by providing a standardized and systematic process for assessing tree risk. The results of a tree risk assessment can provide tree owners and risk managers with the information to make informed decisions to enhance tree benefits, health, and longevity.
Way to go Z!
We are so proud of the latest addition to our fleet. Our new chipper has one of the only tier 4 engines in our industry in Nevada County. What does that mean? It is compliant with the stringent emission standards set by the California Air Resources Board and burns cleaner than another other diesel engine previously in production. That's right...you could say we have gone green. We couldn't have done it without the help of Chad Kelley with Cal-Line Equipment. Thanks!
We look forward to making your yard green!
Our cat Tucker loves to munch on whatever greenery I bring into the house, which of course makes me worry for his safety. This website is a great resource to determine which plants are toxic and non-toxic for your furry friends.
