BAGWORM

Bagworm is airborne and does not often kill a tree, but can do damage.  If you see this on your tree, it is best to remove it and stamp on it, killing the worm inside.

WATERING

It is starting to get hot!  Please water your new trees low and slow 3 times per week in summer. As trees start to mature you can cut back a bit, but the first 3 years are pretty critical.

HOW TO WATER A TREE VIDEO

WEED KILLERS

Refrain from using weed killer, pre-emergence, or weed and feed near your trees. These products can kill trees and bees and injure wildlife, pets and children as well. 

STAKING

Do not let hard materials such as wire, electrical cord, or rope touch your tree. Use something that gives such as old pantyhose and keep what touches the tree loose. Only stake for 1 growing season, and then remove so the roots can get strong.

    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 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!

    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.

    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.
