TreeFolks’ Central Texas Floodplain Reforestation Program is an expansion of the Travis County Floodplain Reforestation Program pilot, now serving the six counties of Travis, Bastrop, Williamson, Caldwell, Hays, and Burnet. This program is a partnership between TreeFolks, the City of Austin Office of Sustainability, City of Austin Watershed Protection Department, Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Guadalupe-Blanco River Trust. The program, operated by TreeFolks, restores healthy forest buffers of local rivers and streams across Central Texas, to improve air and water quality, promote regional cooling, mitigate floodwaters and create wildlife habitat.

Through this project, TreeFolks planted 66,297 trees on 40.15 acres of public and privately owned parcels. Carbon+ Credits generated from this project will be sold to local businesses and the City of Austin to help meet the city’s carbon neutrality goals. Using funds allocated for carbon offsets to purchase local credits from these riparian plantings keeps the City of Austin’s investments localized while addressing global climate change.
