ACTION ALERT! City of Dallas: Urban Forest Master Plan Community Survey

Jan 29 2020 - 7:00am to Feb 29 2020 - 5:00pm

the City of Dallas working with The Texas Trees Foundation and Davey Resource Group, Inc. has kicked-off off the development of the City of Dallas’ first Urban Forest Master Plan. The Plan will serve as a road map for the City of Dallas, providing detailed information, recommendations and resources needed to proactively manage and grow the city’s tree canopy. It will provide a shared vision for the future of the urban forest to help inspire us to care, plant and protect our trees here in Dallas.

Throughout the Urban Forest Master Plan development process there will be opportunities for the community and stakeholders to learn about Dallas’ urban forest and to share ideas, thoughts and input on improving it. We hope you will participate in these opportunities — as your input is essential to building a sustainable and resilient urban forest in Dallas!

The goal is to unveil the Urban Forest Master Plan around Earth Day 2020.
