Tree New Mexico Gratitude
Thank you all for helping to increase the tree canopy in New Mexico during the fall 2022 planting season! So many wonderful people made this season successful!
Tree New Mexico planted four ABQ NeighborWoods plantings funded by ABQ City Councilors – one each by Councilor Benton and Councilor Bassan and two by Councilor Feibelkorn. These plantings were in McDuffie-Twin Parks and Mark Twain neighborhoods and the combined neighborhoods of Heritage East and Quintessence, and West Park and Huning Castle.
As part of our EPA Cooperative Agreement, we planted 50 fruit trees in the International District in Front Yard Gardens to address the food desert. La Puerta de los Niños and Adobe Acres Elementary School also received planted trees and tree education.
All of Tree New Mexico and all the tree adopters, neighborhoods, and schools, are grateful to the tree planters, team leaders, tree stewards, canvassers, table volunteers, ABQ city councilors, ABQ Parks and Recreation Department, the EPA Cooperative Agreement, KUNM & IVS, TreeGreenNM (a program of the Foundation for Building a Sustainable World), HEC, IDHCC, the ABQ Water Utility Authority Treebate program, AND YOU! Thank you for being part of increasing the tree canopy in New Mexico!
Since 2017, Tree New Mexico has increased the tree canopy by 8,061 trees!
