We're planting a forest on Burnet! We've mapped out every location on Burnet from 2222 to 183 where a tree can grow. We know all about the utilities, the City's corridor plans, the businesses that are most likely to be supportive. Season by season, we're planting 10-50 trees until Burnet is transformed.
The next tree-planting project is in October, when we will plant 50 trees near Steck and Ohlen. When we did a planting near here in March at a bus stop, it catalyzed a conversation with the adjacent Austin Infiniti dealership. They pledged to plant another seven trees for us. A nearby mixed use development will also be planting trees. Other businesses are helping to water - Frisco's restaurant and the Burnet Rd Animal Hospital. Still other businesses have said they will support us in the future.
We are raising money from several sources, including neighbors, businesses, the City of Austin, and (hopefully!) private grants.
