Project Update

The Harris County Flood Control District is once again sponsoring the Annual Houston Regional Tree Planting Competition, which will be held in conjunction with local Arbor Day celebrations. Teams will go head-to-head to see who can plant 100 small trees the fastest. Awards will go to the top three fastest teams. Participants are expected to come from all around Houston, and the Harris County Flood Control District will even have a team of its own competing.
