Tree Project

How the Tanglewood Tree Project Works

The Tanglewood Neighborhood Association (TNA) has two options to help you re-plant trees on residential lots this fall. One offers small trees at no charge through the City of Fort Worth; the other offers a discount on the purchase of larger trees at Archie’s Gardenland Nursery. All trees offered are native species that grow well in Fort Worth. Neighbors may participate in either option or both.

Please contact Marshall Shepard at with any questions.

Neighborhood Tree Planting Program

Participants are required to plant and water the trees. Residents get to know their neighbors by working toward a common goal, which builds a stronger sense of community.
