JUST HAPPENED ON NOVEMBER 4: In collaboration with the Western Chapter of ISA, Cypress will be hosting “Putting Research to Work,” a tree professional conference and lecture series benefitting the Britton Fund, a regional nonprofit supporting arboricultural research and education. This special event will be hosted at Cypress Chapel on our Olivet Campus, concluding with a tour of our foundational East Campus.
COMING UP ON NOVEMBER 12: Our third-annual Arboretum Day! Celebrating 130 years and 130 species in the living collection of Cypress Lawn, this special community event in our “Tree City USA” Town of Colma will showcase the diverse trees of the Arboretum, honor our champion Monterey Cypress by the foundational entry archway, and continue our living legacy with the planting of companion trees for old heritage specimens along Cypress Avenue of our original East Campus.
HAPPENING ALL AUTUMN: Wood reclamation at the Arboretum! Giving a second life to trees recently removed on-site, this ongoing collaborative program with Arbor Upcycle custom milling and Structural Concepts Design Build will repurpose wood for benches, tables, and other furniture, both outdoors and in, throughout Cypress Lawn.
