It would be impossible to put a value on the 15
years of leadership and volunteered services provided by Jim Costas to
Up With Trees and beautification efforts throughout Tulsa. “Priceless”
would be a good place to start.
Averaging 25 hours of donated time each week, Jim has been the
driving force behind the September 11 Living Tree Memorial. He and his
wife Alice are the primary caretakers of an arbor garden of 350
commemorative trees, and he is the very soul of the 168-tree Murrah
Tree Memorial. He is the supervisor of a 390-tree planting along a
major Tulsa trafficway, and is the chief organizer of the volunteers
who maintain Up With Trees’ older sites.
Our judges praised his leadership, his hands-on
participation and his commitment to consistent follow-through. For his
creativity and innumerable contributions, JIM COSTAS IS THE ROOT OF GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S URBAN FORESTS!
