Branch Out Dallas for the second year will give Dallas homeowners a free 5-gallon hardwood tree to plant in their yard. The City-wide program distributed about 2604 free trees last year.

The 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.  

Branch Out Dallas supports City-wide initiatives.  

  • Trees improve air quality and help filter stormwater and urban runoff  
  • Homeowners can replace damaged or aging trees 
  • Increase overall tree canopy City-wide 
  • Trees improve quality of life 
  • Public Education on green initiatives 
  • The program supports Neighborhood Beautification Programs 
  • Provides opportunities for City staff and communities to interact
