TreeFolks NeighborWoods Program
We received the following information from TreeFolks that we wanted to pass along to you.
TreeFolks, a local nonprofit organization, is offering free street trees to residents throughout the Austin Energy service area as part of the NeighborWoods program. Each year NeighborWoods delivers roughly 3,600 trees within the Austin Energy service area to shade streets and combat the urban heat island effect. Our staff places flags in eligible homeowners yards where the trees should be planted and doorhangers on their door. Eligibility for this program depends on the amount of space available to plant a tree along the street. If you were offered one or more free trees through this program, please send in your postcard to receive your tree(s).
