The public is invited to join in and help plant a tree.
“Saguaro Power Company and its employees have been actively involved in tree planting and sustainability efforts here in Henderson for the past several years,” said Lisa Ortega, urban forester, City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department. “Thanks to their generosity, we will be able to engage people throughout the community and teach them about the important role trees play in our quality of life.”
