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.
