Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

TreeFolks will empower central Texans to build stronger communities by planting and caring for trees.

TreeFolks provides services in central Texas through 3 primary programs:
• NeighborWoods delivers free street trees to homeowners to plant in the right of way of their front yard to shade streets and combat the urban heat island effect.
• CityShade hosts educational workshops, engages volunteers in public tree planting events and facilitates ongoing tree care opportunities for parks, preserves and right of ways.
• Bastrop County Community Reforestation restores the Lost Pines ecosystem by providing comprehensive reforestation services to private landowners affected by the 2011 wildfires.

Since 1989, TreeFolks has planted more than 1.5 million trees on public and private land to provide the basic necessities of life in Central Texas; clean air and water, habitat for wildlife, and shelter from the hot Texas sun. In 2015, TreeFolks will be well on its way to planting 2 million trees in central Texas!
