Grow Zones Established in Plano Parks

Plano is embarking on the natural reforestation of Plano’s creeks to reduce creek bank erosion, grow the tree canopy, reduce flooding, and filter harmful pollutants before they enter the watershed (the source of our drinking water) by creating grow zones in several Plano parks. Grow zones are located in flood plain areas on park property where trees naturally grow and flooding occurs. Mowing has been reduced in these areas to allow for the natural re-growth of the bottomland hardwood forest with trees native to Plano. For more information about current and future grow zone locations, visit our Urban Forestry page.
