Our Oso Grande Tree New Mexico planting occurred on August 29th, 2020, with Hope Church, 4710 Eubank, hosting the event. Approximately 95 native trees and bushes were given away to the Oso Grande homeowners. Half of the trees were planted in front yards and half in planting strips. The homeowners adopting the trees are required to sign an agreement with the city promising to water and care for the trees. The grant also includes an arborist/landscape architect audit for 3 years with feedback to the homeowners if any issues are found. Planting, tree care information and training are provided in the run-up to the planting and on planting day. Follow-up training in pruning and additional care is provided periodically to every neighborhood planted. A tree audit was performed by Tree New Mexico in late summer of 2023 to determine the care and survivability of trees and bushes planted. Please refer to the attached report for more information.
