Texas Trees Foundation Brochure Overview
Since 1982, Texas Trees Foundation has championed the transformation of North Texas landscapes. In our neighborhoods, parkways, medians, schools and other open public spaces, we plant large trees to shade and beautify our environment, and to comfort our cities and people. Developing and protecting the North Texas urban forests today will be our shared legacy for generations to come.
- SOUTHWESTERN MEDICAL DISTRICT URBAN STREETSCAPE MASTER PLAN //
We are transforming and investing in the public right-of-ways within in the SWMD where three world renowned hospitals reside to create a “sense of place” to make people feel safe, connected and renewed. These sustainable streetscapes and corridor designs bring continuity to a place of healing.
- NEIGHBORWOODS //
Improving neighborhoods by planting trees in public right-of-ways, parks, and yards of residential properties to lower energy costs and increase property values.
- COOL SCHOOLS //
Partnering with North Texas ISDs, we are creating Outdoor Learning Areas on school campuses for a hands-on environmental learning experience to instill a good land ethic and to create a space where “no child is left inside.” Each school is provided a program coordinator, customized landscape plan to be implemented by Texas Trees, and training for teachers and students to support their new landscape.
- NORTH TEXAS DOWNTOWNS //
Focusing on the urban core of cities to reduce the Urban Heat Island effect and create livable, walkable communities.
