Why TreeFolks

TreeFolks empowers Central Texans to build stronger communities through planting and caring for trees. Since 1990, we have:

  • Planted 3 million trees and distributed over 165,000 trees to Austin residents in 33 years
  • Engaged more than 20,000 volunteers since 2010, who collectively planted around 12,000 trees each year
  • Annually provided tree-focused educational experiences for 1,500 participants
  • Led reforestation efforts in the Lost Pines region after the 2011 Bastrop wildfires and along the Blanco River following the 2015 floods
  • Initiated a carbon sequestration and floodwater mitigation program to address the causes and impacts of climate change

As a leader in urban forestry and reforestation, TreeFolks manages four primary initiatives:

  • NeighborWoods – Free tree adoption events for Austin residents and hazardous tree removal/replacement services for low-income households.
  • Education – Workshops, sapling adoptions, tree ID walks, seed collection, and Urban Forest Stewards service-learning.
  • CommuniTrees – Public tree planting events in parks, preserves, and other public lands.
  • Reforestation – Large-scale tree plantings, featuring the innovative, nationally recognized Carbon+ Credits program.
