THE WOODLANDS, TX- The Woodland Township has begun implementation of its tree reforestation program following last year's devastating drought that left more than 52,000 of the trees in the community dead.

In September, the township approved a $191,683 contract with Texas Tree Depot and Boone's Landscaping to plant 1,350 30-gallon trees throughout The Woodlands, primarily behind houses in order to create a buffer between homes and roadways.

The purchase includes 450 white oaks, 450 green ashes, 225 sycamores and 225 elms.

Director Gordy Bunch said the idea of planting larger trees, as opposed to smaller ones, is to patch some of the bare spots in the community's forested sections and "get The Woodlands looking like The Woodlands.""

Township General Manager Don Norrell said about 3,000 dead trees still need to be removed from township property.
