SOF oversees tree pruning and the Big Dig finale

FALLBROOK – Save Our Forest (SOF) finds the winter and spring months to be a very busy time of the year. It is the time to evaluate and arrange for pruning of the Fallbrook community forest. These services are made possible by the citizens of Fallbrook who donate to support this non-profit organization.

Jackie Heyneman, chairman of SOF, said "When you see the professional pruning company on our streets, it is your dollars at work." This year more than 35 trees were pruned. This project was supported by two major entities in the community as well, the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County and Crestview Estates. Their support is greatly appreciated, Heyneman said.

Nessy Burgers, a well-known business in the community for many years, played a major role in another SOF venture this past month, their Environmental Education program. SOF calls it the Big Dig, which desperately needed funding to transport the children from their schools to the planting site at Los Jilgueros Preserve. Charles Webster of Nessy burgers made a donation to make this possible.

Fallbrook Street School and William Frazier School students were the last two schools to participate and made the trip enjoying a morning at the Los Jilgueros Preserve. This SOF program began over nine years ago with more than 5,000 native trees and shrubs planted to restore the Fallbrook Land Conservancy Preserves, Los Jilgueros, Engel and Heller’s Bend to native growth.
