THE CHALLENGE

Is it time for your neighborhood to organize a tree planting program in your
community?

Trees you plant will contribute to cleaner air, cooler temperatures, beautification
of your neighborhood, add value to your home and are a gift to be enjoyed by
present and future generations.

In many areas of the City a great number of trees planted earlier by developers
and prior owners have been lost due to drought, storm damage or simply
completed their full life cycle. Walking around your neighborhood, do you see
areas where street trees have been lost, medians in need of planting and
neighbors who are concerned but don’t know how to begin? If so -- READ ON!

THE SOLUTION

In recognition of the many benefits trees provide the City of Dallas created two (2) programs to
provide trees FREE for neighborhood plantings: 1) MOWmentum and 2) Reforestation Fund.
The Urban Forest Advisory Committee (UFAC), a City of Dallas Committee
comprised of volunteers, is available to provide advice and assistance to
neighborhood associations and groups interested in organizing tree planting
events that qualify for free trees that may be provided though the City of Dallas
MOWmentum and/or the Reforestation Fund.
Trees from these programs are targeted for planting in City of Dallas street
medians and in the “parkway”, which in most neighborhoods is the strip of grassy
area between the sidewalk and the street.
