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.

Planting with Cub Scouts

Today we met with a group of Cub Scouts. We talked with the Pack of around 30 boys about the benefits of trees to our environment and the Polar Bears. They were interested to learn more about Polar Bears. We helped the Webelo den plant trees on their school campus. One of the boys dad had recently passed away. The Webelo den decided to plant a redbud tree in his honor and soon will be constructing a memory garden around this redbud tree.
