Advocacy - some folks are paid to be an advocate, others just do it because it is the right thing to do. Last month - the movie "The Lorax" was released. I went with my sister on opening day. As I reflect and think about this part of the Journey - I realize that The Lorax was an advocate - he would have been a GREAT Girl Scout. My mom serves on the city of Pfllugerville Tree Board and in definately an advocate for youth involvement in the community.
It has been a year and a half since Pflugerville dissolved the Arborist position. And since then there has not been good maintenance of the trees of Pflugerville. There are many I see that need to be remulched, or unstaked, or de-gatorbagged. No one in Pflugerville is willing to step up and speak for the trees.
But I will. I decided to become Pflugerville’s Lorax. And to do so, I have applied for the
and Rec commission, so that I can speak for the trees where it counts - with those who make the decisions. I want everyone to know that having an Arborist is very important and that dissolving the position completely was a very bad idea. The trees need a speaker, and I will be able to help.
