With the devastating weather events we have had in recent years, trees in North Texas are struggling. Here are a few opportunities to get a free tree for your yard and help our urban forest recover!

The City of Dallas is running its Branch Out Dallas program again this year! Dallas residents can register for one of six different tree species during September for pickup in early November.

The free trees available for 2021 are:

  • Bur Oak
  • Chinquapin Oak
  • Sycamore
  • American Elm
  • Mexican Plum
  • Baldcypress

Visit the Branch Out Dallas page to sign up!

The Texas Trees Foundation is committed to the planting of trees in areas that need them the most. As part of their work, the Foundation is creating green spaces at North Texas school campuses and the neighborhoods around them.

Currently, the Texas Trees Foundation is offering free trees to residents of the areas around four Dallas elementary schools:

If you live within a one-mile radius of any of these campuses, you can sign up to receive one or two free trees to plant in the right-of-way between the sidewalk and street in front of your house!

For more information about the trees being offered and to sign up, visit the Texas Trees Foundation Neighborwoods page.
