About The Center
The TXU Energy Urban Tree Farm and Education Center is located on the campus of Dallas College – Richland Campus in Dallas and has been sponsored by TXU Energy since 2004. The tree farm serves as TTF’s tree nursery; a volunteer site; an education destination for school students and others; and a staging area for many of TTF’s projects. The tree farm also benefits the college by offsetting emissions, providing educational and volunteer opportunities for students, and providing trees for the college’s annual Arbor Day celebration.
With the valued sponsorship of TXU Energy, this location is one of Texas’ largest-known urban tree farms. Trees grown at the 3.5-acre tree farm are planted throughout North Texas at 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.
