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.

Sapling Distribution at the Tulsa Zoo

Wednesday, November 24

Today we passed out saplings at the Tulsa Zoo. We gave out 700 saplings along with informational handouts about the environment, trees, and the plight of the polar bears. People were amazed that high school students like us had created such a great project. We also had pledge sheets available and 103 people pledged to help the environment and the polar bears through several ways including recycling phonebooks, lowering the thermostat in the winter, planting trees, and many more. We also came across a large day-care group and gave an unexpected presentation (the teacher kind of put us on the spot but we did really well and we are glad that we were lucky enough to talk with them). We are so glad we got to involve our zoo in our project and the day couldn't have gone better!
