Shade trees for one Tucson neighborhood

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening today, Tucson Mayor's 10,000 Trees for Tucson program is kicking off one neighborhood's transformation.

The goal is to transform Laguna Street with 16 trees, as part of Mayor Jonathan Rothschild's 10,000 Trees campaign. 

Trees for Tucson has teamed up with the Keeling Neighborhood Association for the tree planting on Laguna Street this morning; just one of many that Trees for Tucson coordinates in the Tucson community.  Organizers want Laguna Street to serve as the ‘poster street' for shade trees in Tucson.

A street which will demonstrate all the benefits of having more trees in the neighborhood, including lower temperatures, lower utility bills and increased home values.

Trees for Tucson stated recently that residents in the area are excited to see the change.  The tree planting will begin Monday morning at 8:30 a.m.
