A Note from Ray
Farewell to the 18th Street Camphor
Help honor the iconic camphor tree with a last hoorah

Dear Marsh Wildman,  


After 118 years, Sacramento's oldest street tree has died.


This beloved camphor tree has grown for nearly 6 generations; witnessing changing city life and history.   


Arching across streets, sidewalks, businesses and homes its limbs and shade have graced the intersection of 18th Street and Capitol Avenue.


On Wednesday, August 22, this beautiful, iconic tree will be fallen; however the City of Sacramento and the Sacramento Tree Foundation have joined to create a new Urban Wood Rescue program which will capture the wood from this largest of trees. Its wood will be made available to professional woodworkers, artists, and students to come alive again as beautiful tabletops, benches, chairs and other works of art.


You are invited to join us, the Handle District and Midtown Business Association, tomorrow August 21, 5 - 6:30pm at Paesano's and Mangia to bid farewell to a friend of so many: a giving tree of shelter, comfort and beauty to a bustling city street scene.


A suggested $10 donation to benefit the new Urban Woods Rescue program includes beverages and light food (please RSVP at [masked]).  Or donate now to the Urban Woods Rescue Fund. 


Tree Cheers! Give Now button
