Arbor Day Grant

Grants in this category are allocated for planting of trees, and tree/vegetation restoration projects.

  • Arbor Day is celebrated in New Mexico on the second Friday in March.
  • However, with New Mexico’s multiple climate zone, delay in planting might be necessary.
  • Contact KNMB Grant Chair should you need an extension.
  • KNMB would like to partner with one Arbor Day grant recipient to showcase their project for the State’s celebration. Please contact KNMB Grant Chair with your request.

  • Tree plantings around municipal buildings and libraries
  • Plantings along the Bosque or wilderness areas
