Over the next 20 years, the population of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex is expected to double. Designing communities with the impetus on trees will make communities healthier and more resilient. In the past, cookie-cutter developments have been designed without the natural environment in mind. As we enter a new era in construction and development, the focus must be turned to natural resources and the environment and designing tree focused communities for a sustainable and resilient community.
