The City of Denton has a Tree Mitigation Fund that provides funding for tree planting efforts located throughout our City. Trees are generally planted in our facilities, parks, and medians. The number of trees is based on the available space within the project area. Staff is currently identifying a location for new tree plantings. Be on the lookout for new trees.

Pecan Creek Regional Trail Master Plan
Staff is currently identifying a contract with a consultant to assist with the creation of the Hickory Creek Regional Trail. The contract is expected to be in a council agenda around Summer 2023.
City Council adopted the Parks, Recreation, and Trails System Master Plan on March 1, 2022. The plan identifies a future trail along the Hickory Creek Corridor. The trail length is estimated to be between twelve to sixteen miles. The trail's starting point is from Old Alton Bridge/Guyer HS with the endpoint being at US. 380. The path is proposed to go through various City land, Cole Ranch Development, and other provate developments. Staff is working diligently to identify the areas needed within the private land and engage with the landowners in the pursuit of land dedication or attaining public access easements.
