Branch Out Dallas provides free trees to Dallas residents
The City of Dallas returns with Branch Out Dallas, a program too vital not to bring back in celebration of Texas Arbor Day! It is estimated that the urban tree canopy averages between 27% and 33% of the total acreage in most U.S. metropolitan and urban areas. To encourage the planting of new hardwood trees, Branch Out Dallas gave out 2,500 trees in March 2019, and it is anticipated that another 2,600 trees will be given away on behalf of the program on November 6.
“Trees benefit the environment in so many ways,” said Terry Lowery, Director of Dallas Water Utilities. “They clean the air, filter stormwater and urban runoff, provide shade and combat the effects of climate change. I’m extremely proud to partner with six City departments, as well the Texas A&M Forest Service, and continue this valuable program at no cost to Dallas residents.”
