The Tyler Trees Committee was established in 1989 and has planted more than 1500 trees in Tyler's parks and schools with the help of hundreds of community volunteers.
The Committee's goal is to beautify, enhance and preserve the abundant natural resources of Tyler to:
- Promote tourism;
- Attract new businesses and residents; and advance quality of life for all Tyler residents.
The Trees Committee was originally formed to address the loss of trees in Bergfeld Park. Since 1989, the Committee has gone on to host tree plantings in other City parks, schools and other locations.
Trees planted by the Committee have been carefully researched and varieties are chosen that are adatable to Tyler's soil conditions and climate. By working with city arborist Cody Goldman, the Committee is assured the best selections are made so future generations will benefit from their efforts.
