TUCSON MAYOR’S 10,000 TREES CAMPAIGN

Mayors 10, <a href=cialis buy <a href=” />000 Tree Initiative – Tucson Landscaper” src=”http://www.sonoran-oasis.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Mayors-10000-Tree-Initiative-Tucson-Landscaper.jpg” width=”199″ height=”300″ />

Mayor Jonathan Rothschild has joined with Tucson community partners to lead a challenge for Tucson to plant 10, buy viagra 000 trees.  This includes planting trees at homes, businesses, and on public property -by the end of 2014.

Despite all the great benefits of trees in our desert environment, Tucson is losing trees faster than we are planting them.  Trees provide shade.  They cool our city.  They are an investment that adds value to property.  And, they improve the livability of our community.

 

Here’s how you can help:

  • Plant a tree at your home
  • Attend a tree planting event
  • Create your own tree planting event
  • Donate to the Trees for Tucson tree bank

Trees that you plant can be counted towards the Mayor’s goal of 10,000 trees here.

Participate in the Mayor’s tree planting campaign.  And, always remember to “Plant the Right Tree in the Right Place.”

Sonoran Oasis Landscaping is participating in the Mayor’s 10,000 Trees Campaign.  If you need ideas or help with tree planting give us a call at (520) 370-5697.

  3. Perhaps we can institute a plan in Tucson, similar to the one in Israel. People donate money to have trees planted in honor of people, in memory or people, and “just because”.

    Why are we losing trees? I know that 3 mesquite trees in my yard had to be removed several years ago due to some kind of disease they had.

    • We lose trees to their old age, disease, planting the wrong tree in the wrong place.

  4. That is so fantastic that the mayor has begun this campaign. Trees are great for the environment, the animals, the people who live near them. Just all around a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

  5. We we first moved to our area, our mayor had a program that each new home built was given 3 threes red or live oak to be planted. 15 years later it sure has made our neighborhood much for desirable and tranquil.

    • Trees make all the difference in a neighborhood. We’re trying to get more trees planted in low income areas.

  6. What a great idea. If we all plant a tree…just think how our community will prosper. We were given a gift card for a local nursery when a family member passed to buy a tree in their remembrance. I think this is such a great idea too.

  7. Good for you for being a part of this campaign. Where I live trees grow like weeds and so it’s hard for me to imagine the desert environment that you have there. I hope that you guys keep educating people and keep on planting!

  12. What a great idea. We here in the northern Sacramento Valley are losing our old oak trees. They are a part of our landscape and skyline. They provide acorns for the deer, squirrels and other animals. It is so sad to hear you in Tucson are losing your trees too. What is the right type of tree to plant in your area?

  14. Sounds like an interesting program. In that heat and dry environment, are there only certain types of trees you can or should plant there?
