Program Type:Civic Engagement
Dallas is perhaps not known for its trees when people describe the various areas of the city, but Mike Sills, Regional Urban Forester, for Texas A&M Forest Service, will dispel this notion. He will tell us about his job and what we need to know about programs such as Texas Abor Day, Dallas’ Tree City U.S.A. designation, and other interesting forestry programs and facts. Dallas is home to thousands of trees plus the 6,000-acre urban hardwood forest, the Great Trinity Forest, located within the city limits. Trees provide oxygen, clean the air, fight against erosion, store stormwater, and urban runoff. They also provide food and habitat for wildlife of all types, basically, they are an environmental wonder. Team up with Mike to find out more.
