The reforestation project is part of the City of Dallas Parks and Recreation Department and Texas Trees Foundation’s Branching Out initiative, a commitment to replant trees lost in city parks during recent severe weather. “The damage from the June storm was devastating to the tree canopy across Dallas,” said Matt Grubisich, Director of Operations and Urban Forestry for the Texas Trees Foundation. “By replanting these trees, we will be helping to restore the trees, ensuring a greener, cleaner, cooler Dallas for future generations.”

The partnership builds on Crow Holdings’ history with tree planting and preservation. The late Trammell Crow, widely recognized as one of the greatest real estate developers of the 20 th century, co-founded the Texas Trees Foundation, was an early supporter of the Arbor Day Foundation and established and was the chairman of the National Tree Trust. “We are delighted to partner with the Arbor Day Foundation and Texas Trees Foundation to help improve our community and carry forward a longstanding company commitment to sustainability,” said Gillian Sutton Cho, Chief Operating Officer of Crow Holdings.

“Reforestation of Urban areas is of great importance, now more than ever,” said Dan Lambe, President, the Arbor Day Foundation. “Not only will these trees beautify the landscape, they will also help to clean air and provide natural habitat for local wildlife.”

Trammell Crow’s mantra of “Trees are the answer” lives on today through Crow Holdings’ commitment to the environment, including its enterprise sponsorship of and company-wide participation in EarthX, the world’s largest Earth Day event. The company also supports a variety of national and local nonprofits in the communities across the United States in which it builds and invests.
