Escondido, CA


In our story last week entitled “Now is the time to defend your hometown from live oak killers” we incorrectly identified Tom Stephan as an “arbor­ist.”

He is a former certified arborist. As Stephan informed The Times- Advocate: “I must mention that I mentioned to the writer during the interview that I am a FORMER certi­fied arborist. The ISA www.isa- takes dim view of persons claiming to be certified when the are not, or certification is in arrears as is mine.”

We regret the error.
