PlantAmnesty's Future

Many have asked if PlantAmnesty will be continuing without Cass.  The answer is yes!  PA is going forward to honor Cass’ memory and vision and to continue the work of fulfilling PA’s mission “to end the senseless torture and mutilation of trees and shrubs through mal-pruning.”  True to PlantAmnesty’s long-standing goals, we will continue to offer programs and services that (1) raise awareness of the problem of mal-pruning, (2) provide accessible solutions to the problem, and (3) engender respect for plants. In all of this, we will be animated by Cass’ indomitable spirit.  We appreciate your continued support for this important work.

are in greater danger than ever before. Find out why and how developers captured the high
moral ground in Seattle. And, learn how trees can and must go hand in hand with DENSITY.
