ABOUT  US
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.  Education through community outreach, and involving local residents, is another intention of TREES PLEASE!  We plan on planting native trees every weekend, providing our network of conservation volunteers, while partnering with other organizations who are in line with our mission. 
 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.
