McALLEN — This Saturday state Rep. Sergio Muñoz, McAllen Mayor Richard Cortez and others will kick-off the Trees for Parks Program that will make the city "greener" and provide the essential benefits that only trees can bring to a community.
"We are on a mission to ‘green up’ our communities here in deep South Texas," said Muñoz. "Adding trees to the landscape provides many benefits to the environment, beautifies the area and in this case creates a degree of movement in the economy.”
Muñoz said he plans to duplicate the program in other cities.
