1M Trees Across Texas

Scenic Texas member Bill Brock wants to leave a legacy. He came to Scenic Texas wanting to plant 1 million trees across Texas, much like he did in his youth in the Peace Corp in Guatemala. Currently, we are creating the plan to accomplish this big project and the areas most in need. Because we work with the TxDOT’s Green Ribbon Program, we know millions of trees and shrubs have been planted in Texas for attainment. The Green Ribbon Program was created to improve air quality for high traffic, urban areas with new road construction projects. However, there are areas of Texas that do no have the Green Ribbon Program and are in need of native landscaping and tree planting.

Our first tree planting will be in San Marcos, on Monday, November 23. If you are interested in contributing to this program or volunteering for the day of our first planting, please contact Sarah Tober.
