The Texas Trees Foundation (TTF) provides education and tree planting, creating more livable communities by helping to preserve, grow, and maintain the urban forest. One of the core programs is Branching Out, which is a partnership program with the Dallas Park and Recreation Department to plant trees on City Park properties.

In partnership with the City of Dallas, Salesforce, and American Forests, TTF will plant 250 trees across five parks in spring 2022. The planting projects are designed to combat urban heat and improve air quality, which has a positive impact on human health and wellness. Planting sites were selected based on areas where the need for tree canopy is the highest, and most of the parks are located in economically disadvantaged or other underserved areas.  Trees will be planted by community members and volunteers.

Every tree planting project demonstrates impacts that create a more just and sustainable future. More information soon.
