“Our mission is to plant, protect and promote trees throughout the greater Houston area,” a company release stated. “Founded in 1983, and as we approach our 40th anniversary, we have planted more than 700,000 trees to benefit the Houston community.”

Organizers stress that trees clean the air, mitigate runoff, cool the surroundings and beautify local neighborhoods.
