Trees for Houston - Willow Meadows - Willowbend: If 30 People Donate $10, Then Trees for Houston Can Plant Two Trees in Memorial Park

The Issue: Drought Devastation in Memorial Park

Last year's drought—the worst in Houston's 175-year history—destroyed historic live oaks in Memorial Park and throughout the city. Due to the immense heat and dryness, roughly 400 trees were removed, and thousands of others were left close to dead. Without replanting—and especially if a second year of drought follows—the full effects could significantly change the park's landscape within five years.

The Campaign: Planting Trees in Memorial Park

If this Grassroots campaign raises $300, then Trees for Houston can plant two trees in Memorial Park. Each additional $150 raised will be used to plant another tree. To ensure the survival through further droughts or harsh weather patterns, Trees for Houston will plant mixed native trees such as live oaks, bald cypress, and cedar elms.

To celebrate the launch of Groupon Grassroots, Groupon will provide a $1,000 kickoff grant to this campaign.

Trees for Houston

Trees for Houston has been dedicated to planting, protecting, and promoting trees for more than a quarter century. In that time, the organization has helped more than 420,000 trees spread their roots in the Houston community. Its mission is to use the benefits of lush vegetation to improve air quality, slow storm-water runoff, reduce urban heat, and reestablish the connection of people with nature.

Volunteer projects educate communities about urban forestry and reforestation. In addition to planting at schools, parks, and medians, Trees for Houston's volunteers donate seedlings at events, and work with third- and fourth-grade students to impart the importance of trees.
