Everyone at Plantscapes was saddened to learn of Cass Turnball's untimely death.

Many of us worked with her and learned from her over the years, and we will miss her.

Plant Amnesty will continue the work Cass began. They will 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.
