2005 - Exceptional Merit - Individual Achievement - Beautification & Landscaping - Alice Costas

For nearly two decades, Alice Costas has worked tirelessly to further the ambitious mission for the nationally acclaimed up with trees organization in Tulsa. With equal skill she wears the hats of volunteer, administrator, board member, overseer, client liaison and friend as she plants trees and enhances urban forestry awareness.

She has overseen almost every aspect of Up With Trees’ Arbor Garden Operation, which now boasts more than 440 commemorative trees in two locations. She consults with the tree sponsors, meets with them on site and answers their questions along with administering the extensive record-keeping of the arbor gardens.

Alice Costas, the arbor garden angel, has long and strong roots for Up With Trees and that makes her living example very good news for Oklahoma’s tree advocates.
