Trees For Houston
Carroll Academy, located in the Aldine area of Houston, desperately needed trees to shade their campus after losing them to the recent drought. On Sunday, November 4, Trees For Houston partnered with the State Bar of Texas Environment and Natural Resources Law Section to plant 20, 15-gallon trees. Community volunteers with Xerox participated in the planting activity as well. Their efforts guaranteed a vital environmental improvement to the area where children walk, ride their bikes and play. After the worst drought in state history, it is more important than ever to replant Houston’s canopy. Our city has lost hundreds of thousands of trees, and Trees For Houston is currently focused on conservation and drought remediation projects.
