What is Branch Out Dallas?

The Branch Out Dallas program was started as an effort to reduce the heat island effect and to increase the overall tree canopy in the city.  Each tree planted helps Dallas get closer to meeting these goals. Trees benefit everyone by cooling temperatures and improving air quality.  Homeowners who plant a tree in their yard benefit by saving energy, cooling the air and adding shade.  Program inquiries can be sent to BranchOutDallas@dallas.gov 

Branch Out Dallas supports citywide initiatives:  

  • Trees improve air quality, reduce stormwater runoff, cool temperatures and reduce the heat island effect. 
  • Residents can replace damaged or aging trees.
  • Increases the  overall tree canopy citywide.
  • Trees improve residents' quality of life.
  • Public education on green initiatives.
  • Supports neighborhood beautification efforts.
