Quincentennial Bur Oak Groves

The city of Plano and the Texas Trees Foundation invites you to help "ReTreethePark"

Bob Woodruff Park is one of Plano’s oldest and heavily used green spaces. It is also the home of our majestic Quincentennial Bur Oak Tree in the southern sector of the park. That means that for over 500 years this Bur Oak has served everyone from the first settlers to these Prairie Lands,
to the present day families of this City of Excellence.  Over time, Bob Woodruff Park has lost precious trees from these once lush groves guarded by the Bur Oak. Sponsors are needed to help “ReTreethePark” and install a new irrigation system. Approximately 125 new mature trees are needed to replenish the 10 groves in Bob Woodruff Park. Each grove will accommodate 10 to 12 trees that individuals or groups have the opportunity to fund and actually volunteer to plant.  With your help we will pay tribute to the history of Plano Quincentennial Bur Oak Grove and plant for the future.
