Dave was a friend of ours in this industry. He was the Construction and Project Manager for the Prometheus Real Estate Group, the largest private owner of multi-family properties in the San Francisco Bay Area. For the last 5 years, we’ve been the manager for Prometheus’ urban forest of 10,000+ trees and often ran into Dave during property walks throughout his communities, at company events, or during corporate office visits.

Dave was one of those guys who towered over you but never made you feel small. A beacon of light that brightened your mood when you saw him.

His sudden passing on Sept. 7th, 2016 was a shock to all of us, and we felt compelled to do something to remember him by. So in honor of Dave, we took one of the trees we removed from one his properties (Alderwood) last year, gave it another life, and offered it back to the Prometheus community.
