Local environmentally-conscious companies and corporations can plant, protect, and promote trees throughout the Greater Houston Area by partnering with Trees For Houston.
Through Trees For Houston's company tree planting program, employees can volunteer for two hours to make an impact that will last decades and make their community a more beautiful place to live, work and play.
We work with both large groups and small groups to customize a unique and tailored volunteer opportunity. Trees For Houston handles all the event planning details to make your company volunteer day stress-free and easy.
COMPANY SPONSORED PLANTING
Generous companies have planted more than 200,000 trees in the Greater Houston Area. Our corporate partners tell us how many volunteers they have and how much they can donate, and we do the rest. We will plan an enjoyable, company-branded volunteer event that is tailored to your needs.
Trees For Houston relies entirely on private support. We request a tax-deductible donation from each company to underwrite the cost of its project. Funds cover necessary equipment, trees and watering.
When you donate to Trees For Houston, you are also supporting the missions of our nonprofit clients. We believe that no organization that benefits the public should have to pays for trees. Trees For Houston’s operation model has a cost-effective economy of scale that allows us to plant trees far below market costs. A gift to Trees For Houston directly benefit schools, hospitals, public parks and more.

GROUP VOLUNTEERING WITHOUT A DONATION
If you are unable to provide funding toward a project at this time, but would like to still volunteer, we will work to match you with an existing Trees For Houston general volunteer event.
