The motto of the Texas Trees Foundation is “The Greening of North Central Texas”. The Foundation sustains a tree planting initiative for neighborhood parkways and medians, schools and other public open spaces, a tree growing facility to assure a healthy supply of trees for the future, and education programs to teach the importance and benefits of maintaining a healthy urban forest.
North Texas has one of the most challenging urban climates in the United States. The Dallas Metroplex endures oppressive summer heat, limited rainfall, poor soils, and one of the nation’s worst problems with air pollution. Energy costs keep rising and the urban heat island effect continues to increase temperatures. Residents are at risk and need a solution.
Texas Trees Foundation provides education, trees, and other support needed to create more livable communities and better land stewards through a variety of initiatives, programs, projects and partnerships.
