TreeFolks, a local non-profit, will be offering free trees in our neighborhood through their NeighborWoods program.

They will mark yards that qualify for a free street tree with small flags and leave an order form at the front door.

To get your trees, just fill out the order card and drop it in the mail. TreeFolks even delivers the tree right to your doorstep. TreeFolks delivers the trees, along with planting and watering instructions, between October and March. For more information, visit www.treefolks.org/nw .”

NeighborWoods is sponsored by Austin Energy to lower summer temperatures and reduce energy consumption by investing in tree canopy cover that will shade paved streets, therefore combating the Urban Heat Island Effect.
