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 the City 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 the trees also provide shade.  Program inquiries can be sent to BranchOutDallas@dallascityhall.com
