TNM has a new executive director and new digs!

Tree New Mexico has moved to 3535 Princeton Ave NE, come visit us anytime!

Sue Probart has decided to step out of the Executive Director role after co-founding the organization and running it since day one. In April, she began the process of handing her role over to Shannon Horst. Sue will continue serving on the Board of TNM as the Founding Director and, when her health is better (soon, we hope) will begin doing some work here again on a part-time basis. We know Sue would love to hear from you, so give her a call or send her an email to

Shannon Horst has taken on the role of executive director!  

Shannon has known Sue and TNM for more than 20 years and worked with Sue on a number of projects. Shannon’s career background is in nonprofit management, agriculture, and conservation. She was also born and raised in New Mexico and has lived here all but about 15 years of her life. Already, she is loving TNM’s role in working with neighborhoods and communities and many great partners and other volunteers to get trees in the ground and educate people on their value and why it’s crucial we plant and care for them.

TNM Looking For New Board Members!

Tree New Mexico is looking to expand its Board of Directors. We are looking for environmentally conscious applicants who are passionate about urban forestry and ideally have past experience in the marketing field. Past participation on a Board of Directors is also helpful.

If you are interested, contact Shannon Horst at (505)265-4554.
