    VOLUNTEER TO HELP OUR NATIVE TREES

    paxtle-covered-tree-w.jpg

    Audubon de Mexico has started a tree cleaning program to remove large colonies of Paxtle (commonly known as la plaga), from Mesquite and Huizache trees on our public lands. When present in large numbers, Paxtle blocks the sunlight that trees need to produce their food, causing the tree to weaken and potentially die.

    We have identified 2000 trees in need of help at Parque Landeta and the Peninsula located near Otomi Residencias, hundreds of which are at immediate risk. These trees make up important patches of urban forest and we simply cannot afford to lose them.

    Please come out to lend a hand at any of these upcoming community tree cleaning events. We will provide protective leather sleeves and gloves. If ladders are not your thing, there's much to do at ground level.

    Parque Landeta: Friday, July 16 and Saturday, July 17
    Presa Allende (near Otomi Residencias) Saturday, July 31 and Sunday, August 1

    Audubon is taking stand to help these trees. But we need your help. The trees are choking with this plague. If you have been around any these areas walking your dog or just taking a stroll, you will know what I mean.
    I hope you can volunteer one of these days. Thank you!
