DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In continuation of their longstanding partnership, Crow Holdings, a Dallas-based real estate investment and development firm, and Texas Trees Foundation, along with the City of Dallas Parks and Recreation, recently planted 50 trees in Brownwood Park in Dallas, Texas. The 50 trees planted by 112 Crow Holdings employee volunteers will combat Dallas’ urban heat island, contribute to its overall tree canopy, and provide healthy, safe, and green outdoor spaces.
The Dec. 3 event was part of the company’s ongoing legacy of urban tree reforestation across the country through tree planting, local conservation, beautification efforts, and supporting urban parks. Brownwood Park, which was dramatically affected by the 2019 tornado that touched down in Dallas, was chosen as part of planting efforts to reforest areas directly impacted by that weather event.
“Trees help make communities happier and healthier, and our firm is – and always has been – committed to reforestation and conservation,” said Michael Levy, CEO of Crow Holdings. “Whether it’s through financial contributions or employee tree planting events like this one, we proudly support the Texas Trees Foundation, whose important work benefits North Texans today and for generations to come.”
“Texas Trees Foundation is focused on making spaces cooler, greener, and cleaner, and we are fortunate to have such great corporate partners like Crow Holdings who share that vision,” said Janette Monear, CEO/President of Texas Trees Foundation. “These new trees at Brownwood Park will provide an outdoor sanctuary for North Texas residents to experience the joy nature can provide.”
The partnership with Texas Trees Foundation and City of Dallas builds upon Crow Holdings’ decades-long commitment to reforestation in the North Texas area and across the country. Trammell Crow, the late founder of Crow Holdings, co-founded the Dallas Parks Foundation (now the Texas Trees Foundation) in 1982 and later served as the foundation’s Chairman. (Crow Holdings’ Director of Communications, Adam McGill, has served on the Texas Trees Foundation board of trustees since 2013.) Crow also established the National Tree Trust and was appointed its Chairman by President George H.W. Bush in 1990.
In addition to the Dec. 3 event, Crow Holdings partners with Texas Trees Foundation and the Arbor Day Foundation year-round and nationwide to improve communities as part of its commitment to sustainability.
