To celebrate Earth Week, Tucson Mayor Regina Romero and her family planted a native tree at their home. The tree is launching the mayor's Tucson Million Trees campaign, which aims to plant 1 million trees by 2030 to help mitigate the effects of climate change. Fifty other drought-tolerant trees are being planted throughout Tucson in partnership with Trees for Tucson and Tucson Clean & Beautiful.
Romero encourages Tucsonans to plant a native tree to help make Tucson a greener and climate-resilient city. Join the Tucson Million Trees campaign, plant a tree, share a photo in social media, and use the hashtag #TucsonMillionTrees.
