Why join the Heritage Oak Society?
“Trees are not an amenity that can be neglected when the economy gets tight. This is a way to provide for their care into the future, and to make sure that the safety programs that protect our workforce continue to evolve. I didn’t make this decision because I was asked; I did it because it’s important. We all have a role to play in planning for the future of our trees.” – Rose Epperson, Heritage Oak Society member since 2010
