Restoration & Conservation

Merlin Arborist Group to the Rescue!

We are extending a heartfelt thank you to Merlin Schlumberger and his Merlin Arborist Group for a pro bono emergency procedure on one of the heritage black oaks at Cunningham Marsh. We are deeply grateful to Merlin for donating his time, expertise and crew.

Black oaks in Cunningham Marsh are a key component of the Pitkin Marsh lily habitat and the canopy of this particular oak shades the most abundant population of the endangered lily within the marsh. In early August this past year, Laguna Foundation Preserve Manager, Asa Voight, noticed a slight crack beginning to open on this heritage tree. On a subsequent visit in early October, it was obvious that the crack was rapidly worsening.
