Plant These Trees to Help Battle Climate Change Across New Mexico
Join Albuquerque to Increase Tree Canopies
Depending on where you live, research shows trees can lower temperatures from 5 to 13 degrees. Albuquerque’s campaign, Let’s Plant ABQ, commits to planting 100,000 trees by 2030—to cool and improve the city by increasing the urban tree canopy while also replacing old and dying trees.
Many cities across the state face similar threats. With the new climate-ready trees lists, municipalities, developers, schools, Homeowner Associations, apartment owners and more can join the effort to mitigate climate change. These trees will act as nature’s air conditioner for warm neighborhoods, cooling the air and improving the quality of life for people across the state.
