Reforesting Your Neighborhood Park

Branching Out

The Branching Out program began in 2018, in an effort to reforest and beautify Dallas’ aging urban canopy. For each planting the Dallas Park and Recreation, the Texas Trees Foundation, organizational donors, and community volunteers work collaboratively to strategically plant trees with the intentions to increase the current Dallas tree canopy coverage, while providing shade and other health benefits.

Texas Trees Foundation is once again teaming up with its dedicated partners as well as the City of Dallas and Dallas Park and Recreation Department to expand and restore tree canopies in local communities.

Along with its sponsors, the Texas Trees Foundation is planting new trees in strategic locations to help mitigate the Urban Heat Island effect and create a greener and healthier North Texas.

Cool Schools

Cool Schools connect students and teachers to nature by planting trees and creating fun and engaging outdoor experiential learning areas.


Founded in April 1982, the foundation grew and transformed into what we now know as the current Texas Trees Foundation operating in North Texas.


The Texas Trees Foundation has numerous projects and programs which aim to increase the urban tree canopy and improve the community.
