What can be done in addition to tree planting?
There are many rewarding tasks for people wanting to make a difference by volunteering their time or donating money.
Tasks may include:

Organizations that contribute to having healthy, productive forests in Dallas include the Trinity Blacklands Urban Forest Council, the Texas Trees Foundation, For the Love of the Lake, and the Dallas Urban Forest Advisory Committee.
