TXU Energy Urban Tree Farm and Education Center
The tree farm and nursery is used for tree care and education
The TXU Energy Urban Tree Farm and Education Center is located on the campus of Richland College in Dallas, and has been sponsored by TXU Energy since 2002. This tree farm serves as the Foundation’s tree nursery and volunteer site as well as benefiting the college by offsetting emissions and energy consumption.
With the valued sponsorship of TXU Energy, this project is one of Texas’ largest-known urban tree farms. The four-acre tree farm features state-of-the-art production and irrigation technology with the capacity to produce over 7,000 ten-gallon trees per planting season. Trees are grown onsite are planted throughout North Texas for our various projects and programs.
Every year the Texas Trees Foundation looks for ways to improve the TXU Energy Urban Tree Farm and Education Center with the help of volunteers and partners. The site offers potential opportunities for urban forestry research and education, practicing new tree care techniques and hosting educational and recreational events for students and the local community.
