ABQ NeighborWoods is a collaboration between the City of Albuquerque, the US Forest Service, New Mexico State Forestry, Tree New Mexico, local tree growers, neighborhood leaders, and local landscape architects to enhance our urban forest.
Albuquerque lost 2.7% of its tree canopy over a 3 year period, one of the highest losses in the country during the study. Many neighborhoods are below the city average.
Provides funding, training, and consulting professionals for neighborhood members in order to plant 100 street trees and perform tree giveaways of 100 small trees!
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.
