October-March is tree planting season in Austin. While North Shoal Creek’s residential core has a pretty good tree canopy, overall our neighborhood needs more trees. If your yard can use one or more trees, you can probably get free ones from TreeFolks, a local non-profit that partners with the City of Austin to encourage tree planting and care.
There are two ways to get a free tree from TreeFolks:
- Sign up for their Tree Delivery service.
- call TreeFolks at

Capital Metro will host a series of public outreach meetings beginning September 25th to introduce Austin to what would be the most significant transformation of its bus network in the agency’s 32-year history. The proposed changes, if approved by the board of directors November 15, would go into effect in June 2018.
