Greetings Fellow Tree Lovers!!! And we hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season
As winter sets in, we see the temperatures dropping as well as the leaves on our trees. However, trees grow all winter long and need water throughout the season. If we do not get any significant rain or snow, please ensure you are doing a deep watering of your trees. We recommend at least once a month for mature trees, and every two weeks for younger trees. Adding a fresh layer of mulch can help keep tree roots warm too. Check out our website if you have questions or wish to contact us for any information! http://www.treenm.com/nm-tree-species/z-recommended-tree-planting-list-for-albuquerque-nm/
UPDATE: Fall 2017 - Tree New Mexico, in partnership with Councilor Benton, the City of Albuquerque, and New Mexico State Forestry completed our second NeighborWoods tree planting event! This time we planted in the South Broadway neighborhood! Over 200 trees were planted, and we will be offering additional fruit trees to the neighborhood in the spring!
Coming Up: Spring 2018
The NeighborWoods program is expanding!
- Councilor Klarissa Pena’s district is now joining our ABQ NeighborWoods program with participation from the Route 66 West Neighborhood.
- We will be planting in Councilor Benton’s district again – this time in the Barelas neighborhood. And thanks to Wells Fargo Bank, we have some additional funds to add to the tree cause in Barelas as well!!
Watch for further information on tree planting event dates and times.
-----If your neighborhood would like to be considered for the program, please contact your City Councilor and ask them about ABQ NeighborWoods!
-With 85% of Albuquerque’s trees located on private property and business sites, the role of homeowners is vital in enhancing and growing our urban forest.
- In addition, we will be working with the folks in Las Cruces and sharing the NeighborWoods program ideas and process with them.
