Episode 33 – Environmentalism and Free Trees in Austin with the TreeFolks

Since 1988 Treefolks has been keeping Austin and Central Texas clean and green. For nearly 30 years the environmental nonprofit has maintained and restored the natural tree population of Central Texas. TreeFolk offers a variety of programs, from Neighborwoods, a program providing free trees for property owners, to education on the native trees of Central Texas, and classes on how to keep your own yard happy and healthy.

Kyle & Charlie chat with Thaïs Perkins, TreeFolks’ executive director, about TreeFolks’ humble origins to its growth of one of Austin’s largest environmental nonprofits. They talk about TreeFolks’ heroic efforts of restoring the native wildlife of Bastrop after the Bastrop wildfires of 2011, and Thaïs shares how you can get a free tree or two!
