Keep Austin Rooted

Fight Canopy Loss - Combat Climate Change - Plant Trees!

Calling all Austinites to Keep Austin Rooted!

We’re on a mission to combat the loss of tree canopy & fight climate change by planting over one million trees in Central Texas. Join our Keep Austin Rooted campaign to bring back the beauty, protection, and bounty that native trees provide to the ecosystem and our community.

Trees to go

Austin is losing tree canopy, but we can reverse that trend. Planting trees is one of the most cost-effective methods to combat the climate crisis and cool our city.

Did you know that planting just 1 acre of trees in Austin can:

  • Capture over 106 tons of harmful carbon pollution

  • Stop 26,000 gallons of stormwater runoff

  • Drastically improve air quality & energy consumption

  • Build on the declining tree canopy in Austin for years to come

Every Tree Counts. Join us by making a meaningful contribution today.

Our Mission

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, our TreeFolks team has been working directly in the community to plant and provide trees to support reforestation in both rural and urban communities across Central Texas. Since our inception in 1989, we’ve planted over 3 million trees, and Keep Austin Rooted is the next phase in our local fight to combat climate change and reverse canopy loss. Our vision is to protect our communities by planting over 1 million trees.

Please contribute to Keep Austin Rooted in whatever way you can, whether that’s donating or sharing our mission with your community, everything helps!
