Planting new trees enhances Denton's urban canopy and helps our city thrive! Trees are vital for sustainable community growth, economic vitality, and public health.

Denton needs new trees to:

  • Boost consumer spending
  • Encourage outdoor physical activity
  • Beautify neighborhoods and public spaces
  • Lower energy consumption of homes and businesses
