BENEFITING: EARTH DAY TEXAS INCORPORATED

EVENT DATE: Apr 26, 2014

THE STORY:

When’s the last time you climbed a tree? For many of us, it’s been awhile. And with the hustle and bustle of life in Dallas, we often forget just how important trees are to our community. They provide shade and recreation and help keep our environment clean and pristine.

Earth Day Texas is giving back to our green friends and taking fundraising to new heights with ChariTree on April 26-27 at Fair Park.

To remind people of the fun and freedom of tree climbing, some of the participants will strap on a helmet and a harness and scale their way to the top of two historic live oak trees in Fair Park, starting Saturday, April 26. This year we have our very own Texas Historic Tree Coalition (TXHTC) participating in the 2014 ChariTree Challenge. TXHTC is a nonprofit, local citizens’ group dedicated to advocating the recognition and celebration of significant and historic trees in our community. 

“By recognizing historic and Indian Marker Trees as living witness to our history, the Texas Historic Tree Coalition is continuing its mission to find and recognize the significant trees in our communities,” said Mary Graves, President of TXHTC.  “It is an opportunity to celebrate the contributions trees make in our lives.  Please consider helping us celebrate significant trees in Texas.” 

Help TXHTC support our tree initiative!  

1. Donate to our Crowdrise page. All funds will be donated to the Urban Forestry Advisory Committee of Dallas and the Texas Historic Tree Coalition.

  • $25 will provide life-sustaining water for a recently planted tree.
  • $100 will provide water-conserving material for a recently planted tree.
  • $500 will plant a tree.
  • $750 will plant and maintain a tree for three years.
  • $1,000 will provide research for Historic and Indian Marker Trees.
  • $5,000 will provide recognition and celebration of our Historic and Indian Marker Trees.

2. Climb a tree! Throughout Saturday and Sunday, April 26-27, at Fair Park, all Earth Day Texas attendees over the age of 6 can sign up to climb the very same trees used for ChariTree. All climbers will receive a brief training from professionals with Tree Climbers International before hitting the bark.
