West Texas Urban Forestry Council

The trees our grandparents planted are quickly disappearing due to urban sprawl; native vegetation is being destroyed and replaced by paving. In the desert southwest, not enough of the better-adapted tree species are being included in urban development.

The West Texas Urban Forestry Council (WTUFC), whose members are known as Los Tree Amigos, is a coalition of people who are interested in protecting and developing the urban community forest resources of West Texas and the El Paso Region. The Council strives to provide the most recent information and technological advances in tree care and maintenance.

Members of the West Texas Urban Forestry Council are known as “Los Tree Amigos”. We are interested in protecting and developing the Urban and Community forest resources of West Texas.

Congratulations to UTEP for earning the 2018 Tree Campus USA® recognition!

Tree Campus USA, an Arbor Day Foundation program, honors colleges and universities and their leaders for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation.
To obtain this distinction, the University of Texas at El Paso has met the five core standards for sustainable campus forestry required by Tree Campus USA, including establishment of a tree advisory committee, evidence of a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance and the sponsorship of student service-learning projects.
Thanks for being a leader in our region!! #treecampusUSA #UTEP #sustainablecapusforestry #healthytrees #healthycanopy
