Trees for Tucson
was started in 1989 to encourage and facilitate desert-adapted tree planting in the Tucson metro area. Trees help beautify the community, shade buildings to conserve energy thereby reducing carbon emissions resulting from energy production, provide habitat for wildlife, trap air pollutants, control storm water runoff, and block soil erosion. Trees also trap and store carbon dioxide, the leading cause of global warming. Lastly, trees transpire moisture from their leaves which absorbs heat and helps cool air temperatures at the hottest times of year and reduces the urban heat island effect. tucsonaz.gov/tcb/tft

Helping to shape and define Arizona´s future through an action-oriented agenda
Over the last two years, the Center for the Future of Arizona has released two groundbreaking studies that that provide the foundation for community action:

The Gallup Arizona Poll (2009)
captured the most comprehensive picture of citizen thinking ever compiled in the state. The study found a surprising amount of consensus among Arizonans on issues, which made it possible for the Center to build a citizens’ agenda for the state, The Arizona We Want, the first of its kind in the nation.

The Arizona Civic Health Index (2010)
looks closely at citizen engagement in our state. Produced in partnership with the National Conference on Citizenship and 16 other states and large urban regions, the Index shows clearly that Arizona lags the nation on almost all indicators of civic health. thearizonawewant.org

Creating the Arizona We Want
The Center for the Future of Arizona is helping to shape and define Arizona’s future through an action-oriented agenda focused on issues and topics critical to the state. More than a think tank, the center is an independent “do tank” that combines public-policy research with collaborative partnerships and initiatives that will create opportunities and quality of life for all Arizonans.
