TREES PLEASE! is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit located locally in Tucson, Arizona.  Our goal is to help restore damaged native habitats within Pima County, educate local residents through community outreach, create neighborhood green spaces, provide garden plots and a therapy center to those in need. ​​

TREES PLEASE! has adopted 12 wash/park sites in Tucson that are  cleaned and maintained through our network of conservation volunteers. We are grateful for the support and hope to bring the community closer through partnering with individuals and other organizations who are in line with our mission.

TREES PLEASE! newest project is the Barrio Hollywood Community Garden and Therapy Center.  This is a place for all to come and learn about horticulture and animal husbandry! Free garden plots are available to local residents, low-income families, and organizations that support at-risk youth, refugees, handicapped, and special needs.  

 TREES PLEASE! has paid for and planted over 120 trees in an 86 acre Marana, Arizona wildlife corridor, known officially as El Rio Open Space Area.  TREES PLEASE! has also worked in partnership with the Town of Marana, the Marana Rock Gold Disc Club, and the Tucson Audubon Society to plant another 200 trees in the same wildlife corridor.
