Trees are Terrific!
Planting new trees enhances Denton’s urban canopy and helps our city thrive! Trees are vital for sustainable community growth, economic vitality, and public health. They also:
- beautify neighborhoods and public spaces;
- increase property values;
- lower energy consumption of homes and businesses;
- boost consumer spending; and
- encourage outdoor physical activity.
Help your tree get a healthy start!
