We work to develop innovative partnerships with local corporations and civic associations that benefit Trees For Houston, the partnering company, and the community, by maximizing available resources. Trees For Houston depends greatly on generous corporate support to help us fulfill our mission.
Trees For Houston is working with Evelyn’s Park Conservancy to supply trees to the 5-acre historic former Teas Nursery site that is currently being transformed into a park. We have committed to providing over 300 trees for the project, which will not only help shade and beautify the area, but will also aid in the reduction of energy consumption and enhance the daily lives of those visiting and living near the park. We've also been working with EPC for the last two years growing trees to maximize dollars, while maintaining quality to ensure the trees thrive when planted.
For more information about Evelyn’s Park, including Master Plan renderings, construction updates and information on how you can donate to the project, visit www.evelynspark.org.
Trees For Schools
The mission of the Trees For Schools program is to expand awareness of the critical role that trees play in our community for residents of all ages and grade levels. They strive to create a multigenerational community of life-long stewards of our urban forest. During the 2017-2018 planting season, we planted 1,549 trees at 48 schools including 22 volunteer plantings. Each year we also partner with the SPARK Park Program, to provide trees for their newly constructed SPARK Parks. Our classroom program, generously sponsored by CenterPoint Energy, educates the youngest members of our community on the importance of protecting trees and our environment for the future.

Houston Arboretum & Nature Center
Houston recently experienced two major natural disasters, Hurricane Ike in 2008 and then a severe drought in the summer of 2011. Coupled together, these two natural disasters had a significant impact on the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center and resulted in a 50% loss of their tree canopy, loss of many native plants, and subsequent encroachment of invasive species. The Arboretum has decided to use this experience as an opportunity to develop a master plan that would enable them to more effectively fulfill our two primary purposes – conservation and nature education – for decades to come. Trees For Houston has committed to providing a minimum of 2,500 trees to fulfill this master plan.

Bayou Greenways is the overarching initiative that will develop connected green corridors with hike and bike trails along the bayous of the greater Houston area. When complete, the project will have added 4,000 acres of new, equitably distributed green spaces that will also aid in flood control and storm water quality enhancement, and 300 miles of continuous, all-weather hike and bike trails that will meander through our bayou greenways. This ambitious project will significantly expand and enhance Houston’s parks system, creating a continuous system within the city limits of 150 miles of parks and trails along Houston’s bayous. Trees For Houston has committed to providing trees for the green corridors, hike and bike trails and bayou greenways. We recently planted trees along Brays Bayou for the Atwell Bridge project.

Broadway Street Airport Corridor
The Broadway/Hobby Corridor Redevelopment Project is the transformation of the 2-mile Broadway Street airport corridor connecting William P. Hobby Airport to I-45. This revitalization effort will act as a catalyst for future development along Broadway and will constitute the final element of a complementary series of projects in the area. Scenic Houston is spearheading the project and is working with the newly formed Hobby Area Management District, the City of Houston, TxDOT, and other key organizations to transform corridor. A fresh, attractive Broadway will provide a much needed “Welcome to Houston.”

Harris County Precinct
Last year, Trees For Houston formed a unique partnership with Harris County Precinct 3 to provide trees for greenspaces within the precinct. HCP3 committed to planting and watering all of the trees provided by Trees For Houston. Since then over 4,500 trees have been planted in parks and esplanades throughout Harris County Precinct 3. We hope to continue this partnership this planting season by providing a minimum of 5,000 trees to the precinct.
