Pantano tree dedication set for May 6

Tucson Clean & Beautiful, in cooperation with the City of Tucson and Pima County, will dedicate 28 trees at 10 a.m. Friday, May 6, at the Garden of the Flute Players along the Pantano River Park. The ceremony will include a reading of the names for whom the trees have been dedicated and names inscribed at the nearby Children’s Memorial Garden.

Pantano River ParkAn informal walking tour of newly dedicated trees concludes the ceremony. The ceremony will be held on the west side of Pantano Parkway between 22nd Street and Golf Links Road. The 28 trees being planted includes a few extra trees that will be available for immediate dedication on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional trees will be planted in November 2016 in advance of a December dedication.

More than 275 trees have been planted along the Pantano Wash since 2012. Over the next several years, dedicated trees will restore more than two miles of natural habitat and will provide shade for users of The Loop. 

Trees sold for $225, which included irrigation lines, a number marker, a dedication certificate and guaranteed replacement. Purchasers were able to have trees dedicated for a special occasion or in remembrance of a friend or family member.
