TreeFolks’ Central Texas Floodplain Reforestation Program (CTFRP) restores degraded riparian forest buffers along creeks, streams and rivers within the 100-year floodplains of Travis, Hays, Bastrop, Caldwell, Williamson, Blanco and Burnet counties. This program is a partnership between TreeFolks, the City of Austin Office of Sustainability, the City of Austin Watershed Protection Department, the City of Wimberley Parks and Recreation Department, the Guadalupe-Blanco River Trust, and Texas Parks and Wildlife.

For the CTFRP 22-23 project, TreeFolks planted 66,956 trees on 68.42 acres of public and privately owned parcels in Blanco, Travis, Hays, Caldwell, and Bastrop counties, between January 21, 2023 and February 14, 2023. Reestablishing riparian forest corridors will increase canopy cover and diversity in an ecosystem that has been degraded for over a century, and will provide many benefits throughout Central Texas including the protection of watersheds, erosion control, flood mitigation, increased groundwater infiltration, interception, and filtration of stormwater run-off into sensitive waterways, regional cooling, and creation of vital wildlife habitat.

The reforestation project also serves to engage local community members with the environment, complementing Austin’s participation in the Biophilic Cities Network and the Children and Nature collaborative, and aligning with the citywide green infrastructure efforts. Reforesting local stream corridors will create lasting change, both within the city limits and across Central Texas.
