Sue Probart, Beloved Founder of TreeNM will be Missed!
A memorial tree planting is planned for April 1, 2023, at 1pm at the Woodward House.
Woodward House is west on Arbor Road off Rio Grande Blvd, NW.

The founder of Tree New Mexico, our beloved friend Sue Probart, died on January 9, 2023. She was among family and long-time friends when she passed.
Sue started Tree New Mexico (TreeNM) in 1990 with a group of high school students and other friends and colleagues who had a great idea. From that time forward she worked tirelessly to enhance and enrich New Mexico and its urban communities with trees and education on how to care for them. Click here to read full announcement.

Wow, big thanks to everyone involved in our tree planting. Super big shout out to Pat Davis for his support!!!
What a treat. Before I say anything I must say our community is so fortunate to have Tree NM. Frankly, you all are a source of community pride which is oh so needed in today’s world.
“You and your team are the best! I was very impressed with your efficiency and positive attitude. I look forward to working with you again. And, the nectarine tree is happily planted.”
I want to thank you both very much for the wonderful tree that was planted in my yard on Saturday morning. It is a Chinese Pistache and was even larger than I expected. It is lovely. I am so very grateful to have been the recipient of this wonderful tree. Also, the people who installed it were gracious and so very capable. Thank them for me as well.
“My experience thus far with the tree-planting group has been excellent. They have been courteous, helpful and enthusiastic.”
Thank YOU! I think this goes without saying, but I’m so happy to help establish an urban forest canopy and real community in our city. I wholeheartedly believe we all are, and that’s why we do what we do! Our planting team also received many positive words of encouragement and thanks during our planting. People think this is the coolest most wonderful program and I agree 😊 Looking forward to fall plantings and seeing everyone again (probably still from a distance).
Stay well everyone!
“I want to thank you for doing such a nice job of tree planting in my neighborhood---mine and 4 neighbors that I was able to see. I truly appreciate your commitment”
Dear Tree New Mexico staff and UHA board: Thanks for the beautiful desert willow in front of my home and all the other trees along Columbia Drive and throughout the neighborhood. What a wonderful, inspirational project! Your joint effort is much appreciated.
This has been such an impactful program for canopy and community alike – so many kudos to you for working through those early plantings and learning and growing and getting better. I am so impressed with TNM’s process now, and how many volunteers you normally get. Incredible.
I just want to express my gratitude for all you and your team do for the neighborhood. You all are consistently efficient and always so generous, and I am grateful to work with you:) I can't wait to be a part of your greening of ABQ in 2023. Happy New Trees for the New Year!!! 🥳
Hello All, Thank you so much for making all those beautiful trees available to our neighborhood. We are thrilled with them and the neighborhood will be looking better and better as the trees mature and flower. I check ours daily just in case there is an early flower. You all are absolutely awesome, thanks for all your efforts and time canvassing our neighborhood with flyers, arranging everything and planting the trees for us. What a wonderful program! We so much appreciate all your efforts.
