Tree the Town

A former planting program which transformed communities

Tree The Town was a citywide, public‐private program with an ambitious goal: to plant and care for 50,000 new trees. The program officially began April 18, with the planting of 100 trees sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas on the Central Trail at the Galatyn Plaza.

The trees are being located along community trails and thoroughfares which could use more shade for hikers and bikers, or could use more trees to improve the landscaping along roadways.

Some project locations are at: Central Trail south of the Galatyn Plaza and Routh Creek Parkway near the Spring Creek Nature area; medians on Arapaho Road west and east of Plano Road; medians on Campbell Road east of US75; and Duck Creek Linear Park west of Yale Boulevard.
