Let's expand the awareness of the critical role that trees play in our community for residents of all ages and grade levels.


School and Classroom Presentations


School presentations focus not only on tree biology, but the value and importance of planting and protecting trees in our environment. By combining interactive classroom presentations and customized hands-on activities, we are able to integrate a sense of environmental awareness and responsibility into the daily lives of the youth of our community.

With the support of CenterPoint Energy, our elementary school presentations include a free ā€œGrowing Together" kit for each student. The kits are hands-on learning tools, which include seedlings, growing containers, measurement charts, and recycled pencils for the students.

To request a session at a school, please contact carolina@treesforhouston.org

Adult Education and Educational Outreach

In addition to our schools program, Trees For Houston provides opportunities for citizens of all ages in our community to learn about the vital role trees and tree planting have in maintaining a healthy environment through our education and outreach programs.  Whether through volunteer plantings or speaking to local youth and community groups, Trees For Houston strives to engage the public through tree planting and urban forestry education.
