Texas Trees Foundation Brochure

Learn more about the Texas Trees Foundation in our organizational brochure!

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.

Premier Projects

We are transforming and investing in the public right-of-ways within in the Southwestern Medical District 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.

Partnering with North Texas ISDs, Cool Schools connects students and teachers to nature by planting trees and creating fun and engaging outdoor learning areas. These spaces cultivate children’s knowledge and awareness of the natural environment so “no child is left inside.”

Improving neighborhoods and cities by planting trees in public right-of-ways, parks, and yards of residential properties to lower energy costs and increase property values. Also focusing on urban areas to reduce the Urban Heat Island effect and create livable, walkable communities.

Contact volunteer@texastrees.org and join our volunteers who are helping us plant over 25 thousand trees every year. We partner with generous corporations to help with our urban forestry mission, targeting the Medical District, Dallas ISD schools, and communities throughout North Texas.

The TXU Energy Urban Tree Farm and Education Center, located on the campus of Richland College, is a gathering site where groups and individuals come together to learn about the importance of trees. It’s also the place where we grow our trees for future projects.
