Planting Your Campus


Tree New Mexico offers a special program for teachers, administrators and families that want to plant trees, care for trees, and learn about trees – all at their own campus. 

We can assist in:

  • planning where the trees will go
  • choosing the best palette of trees for that unique site 
  • organizing a community tree planting event to get them in the ground
  • developing a tree curriculum or weaving trees into a curriculum for your students
  • and training youth and their families to do the basic care in years to come

Over our 30 years, we’ve done hundreds of tree programs for youth and planted trees on campuses throughout New Mexico. 

If you are interested in a program tailored to your setting, call us and ask to speak to Kelly White, our Training and Program Development Director.

Western Heights Learning Center Community Planting!

Tree New Mexico will partner with Verizon, the Arbor Day Foundation, Tree Green NM, Green Summit Landscape Management, and Southwest Tree Specialists to plant 40 trees at Western Heights Learning Center. The October 2021 planting includes irrigation, an orchard of six dwarf fruit trees that children can help harvest, and 35 shade trees across the campus.

Located in the South Valley, Western Height is a nonprofit elementary school that has been serving low-income Albuquerque families since 1968. Included in the project is a reclaimed wood bench built by Southwest Tree Specialists and a memorial stone plaque.
