April 17, 2021

Today, City Councilor Diane Gibson joined Tree New Mexico to distribute one hundred trees to the McKinley neighborhood, as part of the NeighborWoods program. Cars and trucks lined up around the block to pick up a free tree at XFactor Church.

Our Albuquerque neighborhood forests make Albuquerque more resilient, livable, and beautiful. The NeighborWoods program helps to restore our City’s urban canopy by planting street trees in our neighborhoods. NeighborWoods is also an effective community-building program.

NeighborWoods projects include assistance with selecting, planting, and maintaining street trees along street fronts in local neighborhoods. The neighborhood commits to providing volunteers to conduct neighborhood outreach, attend tree education classes, plant trees, and water and maintain trees.

City Councilor Diane Gibson used $40,000 of her Set-Aside funding for the NeighborWoods program.
