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.
