In July of 2009, 3 high school freshmen formed GreenTree of Tulsa as an environmental group that would help reduce the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Our plan is to plant trees in Tulsa and surrounding areas to sequester Co2. While working on this project we came to realize that not only the planet and humans are affected, animals are also greatly affected. Climate change and high Co2 levels are severely harming the polar bear's habitats. Due to their dangerous situation, polar bears have become a large part of our project. Since July of 2009, GreenTree of Tulsa(GTOT) has planted over 2,150 trees to help save the polar bears and our environment.

Trees are Amazing!

Trees are pollution fighters, water savers and soil savers. One mature tree each year absorbs 48 lbs. of greenhouse gases, replenishes groundwater by returning stormwater to the soil and supplies enough oxygen for 2 people. So get out and plant a tree! Not only will it beautify your yard, you will be helping our environment. Fall is a great time to plant trees!

Speaking of trees....we are awaiting the arrival of our grant of trees. We will be planting trees around Tulsa soon.
