In the Park

This season, the Dallas Mavericks are implementing Trees for Threes, where a tree will be planted for every three pointer made at home. The trees, up to 10 feet tall, will be planted by Mavs personnel, PwC employees, citizen foresters and volunteers from various parks organizations. The Mavericks understand the importance of proper tree maintenance to ensure survival and have aligned with Arborlogical Services, Inc, tree care experts, and the Dallas Parks and Recreation Department to care for and maintain the trees for three years. The program is a part of the Mavericks eco-friendly initiative, Guard the Planet.
Hundreds of trees will be planted at TP Hill at White Rock Lake and Lake Cliff Park in Oak Cliff. By planting trees in its surrounding neighborhood, the Mavs are able to provide green space for generations to come while helping sustain the environment.
Be sure to follow the Mavs through the season and keep track of how many three pointers are made at home, and subsequently how many trees will be planted!
This marks the second season of the Mavericks commitment to plant trees in the Dallas area. Last year, 55 trees were planted in Reverchon Park as part of Trees for Wins.
