Mayor John Giles expressed his appreciation for the public and private sectors coming together to plant more trees, saying it was a great example of how they can work together towards a sustainable future for Mesa. He also noted that including students from Mesa High School in this project creates a lasting legacy.
Over 60 volunteers from Meta, Mesa High School, Valley Metro and the Superstition Springs Center joined Mayor John Giles, Councilmember Scott Somers and Councilmember Julie Spilsbury at the event. Meta provided a generous donation which funded the planting of 108 low-water-use trees in support of the city's Trees Are Cool initiative and 72 shrubs and groundcovers, including milkweed and other pollinator-friendly plants, in support of the National Wildlife Federation's Mayors' Monarch Pledge.

The City recognizes that partnering with all members throughout the community is necessary to accomplish their climate action goals. Councilmember Scott Somers expressed his gratitude for Meta's investment and support of this impactful community project. David Williams, Community Development Manager for Meta said they are proud to call Mesa home and are committed to its long-term vitality through sustainability initiatives like Trees Are Cool which benefit both residents and wildlife alike.
Mesa High School environmental students were given an opportunity to experience public transit first-hand by taking a Valley Metro bus to the planting event where they joined community leaders, volunteers and local businesses. Jenny Robinson, Environmental Science teacher at Mesa High School said this opportunity has given students a chance to get outside the classroom and learn how they can make an impact when working together as a team.
The Arizona Sustainability Alliance (AZSA) managed the planting project on behalf of Meta as well as volunteer efforts. This project supports several key City of Mesa initiatives such as improving transit opportunities, heat mitigation, air quality, energy efficiency, water stewardship as well as their strategic priorities for sustainable environment neighborhoods and placemaking.
