Quick Tips for Keeping your Tree Happy and Healthy
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.
“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”
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.
'Twas the night before planting when all through the yard, Not a creature was stirring, not even the mouse. The holes were dug by the volunteers with care, In hopes that Tree New Mexico soon would be there. The owners were waiting all snug in their chairs, While visions of shade trees danced in their heads. And Grandma with her Iced tea and I with a beer, Had just settled down on the porch with care. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the chair to see what was the matter. Away to the driveway I flew like a flash, Tore open the gate, threw up the latch. The sun on the breast of the newly mowed grass, Gave the lustre of mid-day to the clippings below. When what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a truck full of many tiny trees. With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be them. More rapid than eagles, the volunteers came, And He whistled and shouted and called them by name: "Now! Redbud, now! Cedar, now! Willow, and Ash. On! Mesquite, on! Sumac, on! Pine tree and Elm!" To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! Now Plant away! Plant away! Plant away all! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU, ALL!!!
I arrived today to find two beautiful new trees planted in my front yard. Neither I or my partner were home for the digging and planting (we both work long hours and weekends), and I just wanted thank your organization and the wonderful volunteers who helped plant these trees, and also apologize for not being around to help out. I want you to know how much we appreciate this project and the hard work of your volunteers. We will take good care of our new trees.
I thoroughly enjoyed Kelly White’s presentation. I looked at my trees with renewed appreciation and wonder!
“My experience thus far with the tree-planting group has been excellent. They have been courteous, helpful and enthusiastic.”
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!!! 🥳
“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.”
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.
Wow, big thanks to everyone involved in our tree planting. Super big shout out to Pat Davis for his support!!!
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.
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.
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!
Taking a moment to thank you and the entire TreeNM team for working with us on our tree canopy restoration efforts. We have a lot of new trees in our neighborhood and a lot of happy neighbors. We are truly grateful to have been a part of such a great quality program that's helped us not only improve our street tree situation, but also helped build community and goodwill in our neighborhood. Yay trees!
