Million Trees + Houston Planting Schedule
The Houston Parks and Recreation Department will plant approximately 20,000 trees in select areas across the city as part of Mayor Bill White's Million Trees + Houston initiative. The initiative, announced in October 2008, is to plant more than a million new trees in the city within five years through corporate and private donations.
The first round of trees to be planted as part of the Mayor's Million Trees + Houston initiative is scheduled for February 2009. At the same time certain esplanades have been scheduled to be planted in response to Super Neighborhood Action Plan (SNAP) requests.
All trees will be planted by a contractor working for the Houston Parks and Recreation Department in the following order:
Once District A and G tree plantings are completed, the contractor will begin to plant SNAP tree requests in the following order:
The second round of the Mayor's Million Trees + Houston initiative will begin after the SNAP trees are planted on Wayside beginning at Little York and going south. Updates on types of trees and scheduled planting dates will be sent out before the planting begins.
The Mayor's Million Trees + Houston initiative partners include the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, Trees for Houston, Texas Department of Transportation, Houston's Quality of Life Coalition, the Greater Houston Partnership, and others.
