  TNM’s ABQ NeighborWoods Kickoff                

Tree New Mexico’s ABQ NeighborWoods program kicked off in Wells Park on Earth Day with a planting event that engaged over 75 volunteers who planted 110 trees in left-over spaces throughout the neighborhood!!

Homeowners also received an additional 100 trees for their yards along with several training sessions on tree planting and maintenance.

Thanks to Councilor Benton  and to the neighborhood leaders and volunteers!

Albuquerque nm 87102. Thank u for all u do priscilla

I am interested in a couple of things:

1) More info on volunteering with Tree NM. I work Saturdays, but am wondering what opportunities there are throughout the week and throughout the year.
2) Where to find the trees on the recommended for Albuquerque list? I would like to buy one or two. Also, is there anyone that sells fairly good size trees to start with?

Thank you for your assistance, Brenda Carroll

Hi Brenda,
Thanks for visiting the Tree New Mexico Website – very appreciated! We can put you on our mailing list for volunteer opportunities if that is ok with you. Also, we use Trees of Corrales here in Albuquerque, but they may be a wholesaler. However if you contact them they can probably steer you in the right direction. Thanks!

Hi Priscilla, The Wells Park planting was really fun and a great success! I am sorry but yes is too late at this time to plant a tree for you through the ABQ NeighborWoods program. We do have a list of recommended trees to plant in our area right here on this website, so please take a look! Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!
