Started by KMB in 1996, this organization of volunteers continues to provide education and resources for tree planting and care in Midland.
Midland TreeKeepers is a group of volunteers affiliated with Keep Midland Beautiful who love trees and are dedicated to maintaining the health and beauty of trees in Midland, Texas. From professional arborists to the lay tree-lover, the TreeKeepers are a diverse group with a common interest: keeping Midland's urban forest alive and well. Members participate in educational and community events centered around tree care. We plant trees, we prune them and we arm others with the knowledge they need to see their trees thrive.
Midland TreeKeepers works in partnership with the City of Midland Parks Department with support from the Texas Forest Service and Texas Cooperative Extension. Membership is open to anyone willing to volunteer their time in support of the group’s activities. Training in basic horticultural principles and tree maintenance techniques will be provided to members by experienced professionals. Funds for equipment, administrative, and other group expenses are generated through grants and donations obtained by Keep Midland Beautiful.
Keep Midland Beautiful invites everyone between the ages of 16 and 100 with an interest in Midland’s urban forests to join TreeKeepers. Individuals needing community service hours are encouraged to join. We meet from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM on the Third Thursday of the month at Midland Shared Spaces. We would love to have you join! Becoming a TreeKeeper is easy. Call the Keep Midland Beautiful office at 432-688-7745 or fill out the information below and we will get back to you. You’ll be told about the next meeting, you’ll receive training, and you’re on your way!

Learn how to help by selecting the right trees for the Permian Basin. We worked with the Permian Basin Master Gardeners, our Texas A&M Agrilife Extension office, Texas 811 and Oncor to create a complete tree planting guide.
