The Austin Community Tree (ACT) program is a neighborhood tree planting program that focuses on reducing the Urban Heat Island effect by planting more trees on private property. The addition of trees can cool daytime temperatures in neighborhoods. The ACT program is offered free to eligible neighborhoods and is a partnership among neighborhoods, the Planning and Zoning Department, Development Services Department, Parks and Recreation Department, Community Court, and Austin Energy.
