What You'll Get


The Issue: Increasing Loss of Urban Tree Cover

Tree cover in urban areas is disappearing at a rate of approximately 4 million trees per year, according to data from the US Forest Service. Of the 20 cities analyzed, the greatest percentage of annual loss in tree cover occurred in New Orleans, Houston, and Albuquerque. According to the same data, Albuquerque was also one of the cities with the greatest increase in impervious cover—such as pavement and rooftops—which exacerbates the decreasing air quality and other effects of tree loss.

The Campaign: Planting Trees to Improve the Environment

If 50 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then Tree New Mexico can plant 10 trees. The trees will go toward restoring the disappearing canopy in urban and rural areas, contributing to the overall health of the environment by improving air quality and reducing storm-water runoff to keep waterways clean. These trees will also be placed in such a way that they will eventually provide shade for homes, saving consumers up to 30% of annual cooling costs. Each additional $50 raised will fund the planting of another tree.

Though its primary goal may seem simple, Tree New Mexico extends its efforts to engender holistic environment improvement through a net of programs. The Plant a Million More initiative aims to double the number of trees the organization has planted in order to reduce pollution in the environment, the River Rescue program restores rivers, lakes, and wetlands by planting poles and native vegetation and removing invasive species, and the Carbon Neutral program works to offset corporations' and individuals' carbon emissions with urban reforestation.
