Trees For Houston

HOUSTON, TEXAS (Citybizlist) - The U.S. Forest Service actively supports urban forestry in 7,000 communities in the U.S., through grants and technical expertise.

Texas has recently lost 5.6 million city trees to drought. Texas Forest Service, a member of The Texas A&M University System, studies and monitors tree mortality in the urban forest across the Lone Star State.

Trees For Houston has planted more than 420,000 trees over 28 years to benefit the Houston community.

The tree was purchased through American Forests, a non-profit organization that received funding from the Forest Service in 2011. American Forests restores and protects urban and rural forests, and has planted more than 40 million trees since 1990.
