to advocate for the protection of the environment
to support the Fort Worth Botanic Garden

Tree Give Away

In 2013, with the purpose of educating about the benefits of trees, adding to the urban tree canopy, and making a healthier and more beautiful city, the FWGC started a program to give 100 free trees to Fort Worth residents. This was so successful that in 2018 the number of trees was doubled to 200. Each October, the FWGC distributes its trees at a market or community festival that is open to the public. The trees selected are native or adapted species and are accompanied with materials describing the tree, instructions on planting and caring for the tree, and materials on the benefits of trees.
