Trees for Public Health

This program primarily focuses on removing impervious surfaces (the asphalt and concrete that overheat our neighborhood streets) and planting street trees on public city property, increasing community engagement in neighborhoods within the Harris Creek Watershed.

TPH began in 2012 with the planting of the McElderry Park Neighborhood (with 450 trees) and has completely planted up seven neighborhoods in the Harris Creek Watershed, thus building a coalition of community associations and resident members in the process.
