Would you like to have a new street tree?

The DNA has received a grant from the PNM Foundation to provide street trees at selected house lots within the DNA boundary.

You can sign up to be considered for a new street tree if:

  • The space between your sidewalk and curb (right-of-way) is 28 inches wide or more.
  • You are willing to sign agreements between yourself and the City of Albuquerque and the DNA, to water the tree on a scheduled time table and keep it alive.
