SMPC recognizes the important benefits of a healthy canopy of trees in our urban environment, they add beauty, help to reduce air and noise pollution, help conserve water and reduce soil erosion, and support wildlife and plant diversity – among other features. On November 9th, SMPC staff turned out to support the City of Albuquerque’s Neighborwoods program. Over 100 volunteers arrived on Saturday for the event in Taylor Ranch. The volunteers planted 100 trees – SMPC team members personally helped with 20 of those trees.  Special thanks to Betta Eisenberg of Tree New Mexico for organizing a smooth event, and CABQ Councilor Cynthia Borrego for finding funding for the work. Also, thanks to Plant World and Trees of Corrales for providing the trees. We had fun supporting the effort, and we’re committed to joining more planting events in the Spring. These efforts are sure to resonate within the community for years to come. I mean, who doesn’t like trees?
