Continue ongoing programs to collaborate with community organizations to promote tree planting efforts, protection of trees and prairies, and drought tolerant landscapes.
In addition to implementing the Urban Forest Masterplan described in Action EG2, the City will work with community-based organizations on existing and new land stewardship programs that educate residents and businesses about the benefits of tree planting and native, drought tolerant landscapes in North Texas. In addition, the City will provide educational resources on best practices for maintaining mature trees. The City will support partnerships and initiatives that protect and expand the native Blackland Prairies.
The City will continue to support ongoing efforts such as Branch out Dallas and City of Dallas Reforestation Program to offer resources, technical assistance and volunteer labor and encourage private property owners to plant trees on their property.
