Golden Isles Fund for Trees recently presented the first "Business Award for Tree Presentation" to Mellow Mushroom for their efforts and dedication to preserving Blanche, a 300+ year old live oak tree that grows inside the back portion of the restaurant. They built the deck around the tree and installed supports for the branches to allow for continued care and maintenance. In addition, GIFT secured a copy of the original registration certificate for Blanche from the Louisiana Live Oak Society to present to Mellow Mushroom. Congratulations to Mellow Mushroom. Pictured from left to right, GIft Founding Member Jan LeMaster, ISA Certified Arborist, Roger Ditmer, who helps care for the tree, Bo Chambliss, Owner, Jessica Snyder, Director of Operations, Bill Stembler, Owner and Kay Cantrell, GIFT Founding Member.
