Tree Guardians

You can volunteer to be a Bachman Lake Tree Guardian! Similar to Adopt a Shoreline, the Tree Guardians commit to adopting a small stretch of newly planted and established trees and groves by watering on a set schedule and keeping trash, debris and other detractors of the health and beauty of our green canopy away from our valuable trees. Tree Guardians also report damage or other issues to Dallas Park and Recreation for attention and remediation.

Did you know that Dallas has its own arborist who can help you identify pests such as the emerald ash borer which is killing our beautiful ash trees? Did you also know that it costs nearly $2,000 per tree to maintain and water without the help of citizen volunteers!
