• Texas is a rapidly urbanizing and we depend on the partnerships between our cities, corporations, non-profits, and the state to care for our urban and community forests - the collective trees and plants, soils, waters, roads, buildings, insects, animals and people where we live, work, and play.

    We have a network of foresters across the state. We monitor, measure and assess changes to the state’s urban forests over time, and with the help of our partners, we help provide urban forestry and arboricultural educational opportunities.

    Trees can be a vital portion of the answer to the issues that cities face, including: energy use, flooding, water scarcity, human health, student engagement and performance, and even crime.
