Torreón, Mexico

Of the 37,150 trees Torreón has planted or donated between 1999 and 2004, about 40% of them are located in city parks and schools. The trees include native mesquite and huizaches as well as ash, poplar, walnut, and fruit-bearing trees like oranges and apple.

Because the city is located in an arid zone, the trees provide protection from the sun, increased oxygen, less erosion of the dusty ground, and improved landscape aesthetics.
