Dallas Urban Forest Master Plan

As we enter a new era of impact investing and witness a high demand for ESG (environmental, social, and governance) investments, there is an opportunity for entities, municipalities, and community leaders to develop innovative partnerships to provide sustainable and equitable returns for their communities. One of such programs is urban forest development.


On Wednesday, June 9, the Dallas City Council unanimously adopted the Dallas Urban Forest Master Plan. This plan provides 14 recommendations “to create a more resilient, well-managed, and sustainable urban forest.”


The city developed this plan in collaboration with the Texas Trees Foundation, Lyda Hill Philanthropies, Oncor, and multiple City of Dallas departments.
