ABQ NEIGHBORWOODS

ABQ NeighborWoods is a collaboration between Tree New Mexico, the City of Albuquerque, New Mexico State Forestry, Southwest Tree Specialists, local tree growers, neighborhood leaders, and local landscape architects to enhance our urban forest.

  • Provides funding, training, and consulting professionals for neighborhood members in order to plant 100 street trees and perform tree giveaways of 100 small trees!
  • Albuquerque lost 2.7% of its tree canopy over a 3year period, one of the highest losses in the country during the study. Many neighborhoods are below the city average.
  • With 85% of Albuquerque’s trees located on private property and on business sites, the connection to homeowners is vital for enhancing and growing our urban forest.
