The City of Fort Worth in conjunction with the Texas Trees Foundation (TTF) is developing an Urban Forest Master Plan to create a shared vision and road map for managing Fort Worth’s trees in order to enhance the quality of life in the City.

The quality, health, and connectivity of the City’s urban forest is a major contributor to the quality of life for residents of Fort Worth. Fort Worth is feeling the impacts of rising temperatures and decreased air quality common to growing urban areas. Loss of existing tree canopy magnifies these impacts.


Fort Worth's Preservation & Design division provides leadership for the physical design of the city. The Preservation & Design division offers guidance to property owners and developers throughout the development process to ensure the logical organization of our future city via the creation of vibrant public spaces that cultivate public life. The Preservation & Design team oversees the City's Preservation Program, Design Districts, and Form-Based Code districts with the shared goal of rehabilitating and creating high-quality buildings that contribute to a dynamic public realm. This division also manages the Historic & Cultural Landmarks Commission, the Urban Design Commission, and the Downtown Design Review Board.
