Cheri Cuellar of Texas Trees Foundation presents: "Trees and the

Urban Environment."

As the fastest growing metropolitan area in the U.S., D/FW is experiencing increased heat, flooding, poor air quality, and other problems common to urban areas.   This presentation will look at the role trees play in mitigating these issues as well as the physical, mental, social, and economic benefits trees provide.   It will also discuss the challenges urban trees face, including pests and diseases, difficult growing conditions, and a changing climate.

This presentation will include an overview of legislative efforts to protect and grow the urban forest, and ways the Texas Trees Foundation is working to help North Texas communities create a cleaner, greener, cooler, and healthier environment. 

Cheri Cuellar is an Urban Forestry Coordinator for the Texas Trees Foundation (TTF), a research-based nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of life in urban areas through increased tree canopy and greenspace.   She is currently working with the City of Fort Worth to develop an Urban Forest Master Plan to ensure forest resources are available to meet the community’s needs now and in the future.  Additional programs and projects include public awareness and education regarding the urban forest, and tree plantings and giveaways to help address urban heat and air quality issues at the neighborhood level.


Cheri is an ISA Certified Arborist and graduate of Stephen F Austin State University College of Forestry. Her prior experience includes urban forestry and environmental compliance for the cities of Fort Worth and Grand Prairie, environmental consulting, and horticultural sales and service.
