Million Trees + Houston
The Million Trees + Houston program started by Mayor Bill White has added to our city’s Urban Forest by planting more than a million new trees in a three to five year period. The program has been coordinated by the Houston Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with Trees for Houston. Other partners include Harris County, the Texas Department of Transportation, and the Quality of Life Coalition. In the interest of creating a greener, more livable city, many private corporations have joined the effort through a special “Gift of Trees” program.
