Trees have been used throughout the world to commemorate major events.
Trees represent life, hope and strength. In these difficult times, their deep roots and strong branches remind us that, though we are battered by terrible winds, we, the community, will emerge sturdier than before. We are resilient and we will endure.
South Phoenix Legacy
In honor of Black History Month, we want to highlight the importance of Black History in South
Phoenix. We created an in-depth write up on its history which includes highlighting important Black leaders, and also acknowledging our history of environmental racism. Please read Black History Month, South Phoenix Legacy by clicking HERE.
The Trees Matter Resiliency Project was born from a desire to integrate Trees Matter’s vision with a way to honor and remember those who risked their lives, fell ill, or died during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
We also want to acknowledge communities of color who have suffered disproportionately from this pandemic in terms of the disease itself, access to health care, and economic insecurity.

Below is a map of the trees we have planted so far.
We will add names to the map when we add the tags to the trees so you can see which tree to find their tag on.
