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.

Take me out to the ballpark

Saturday, December 4th, we planted trees at the Jenks Youth Baseball Park. Connor and Austin are little league umpires during baseball season at this facility. The dirt on the fields is lost due to wind erosion. It is costly to continually bring in loads of dirt. The trees were planted around the perimeter of the 20 fields in hope of cutting down on the erosion. For this particular planting we had two of our friends that wanted to come help plant. They were Nic Christner and Wes Vrooman (not pictured).In total 60 trees will have been planted at this site. If we have trees left over from our other plantings they have requested more be planted at the baseball fields.
