Trees for Kingwood Plants 35 Trees Along Woodland Hills Drive with help from local Kingwood organizations including $2,000 from Kingwood Rotary Club.

A new community group called "Trees for Kingwood" completed their first tree planting in November 2022. The group works across community and trails associations, local government and local businesses to facilitate reforesting the Kingwood area. The trees are planted with best practices (such as adding soil amendments and root stimulator) and a two year watering plan to get them established.
Special thanks to Brad Jude (see photo above, front row on right with shovel) a member of Kingwood Rotary and President of the Bear Branch Trails Association, for suggesting this project to our club's Service Project Chair for this ongoing project.  Click here to read article in The Tribune about this project.
City of Houston Mayor Pro Tem Martin joined volunteers with Trees for Kingwood in planting 100 trees donated by the City of Houston Urban Forestry. The mission of Trees for Kingwood is to restore the Livable Forest. Over the last 5 decades, Kingwood has lost over ten thousand trees due to disease, storms, and drought. Regeneration of the Livable Forest has been hampered by a number of invasive vine species that choke off new tree growth.

Contributions from area community and trails association with trees from the City of Houston allowed for the professional installation of some 35 medium sized trees in our service area. Many of the trees were planted in the bare medians of Woodland Hills Drive starting at Ben’s Branch continuing towards Kingwood Drive.
