Plant a Tree, Give a Tree

Tree Planting Project

JP's has teamed up with the Native Plant Society of Fredericksburg, Texas to bring a tree planting program to Gillespie county and the surrounding areas.  Our goal is to plant 200 trees in Fredericksburg and the surrounding hill country.

For each native tree that JP's plants, we will donate a 5-gallon native tree from the list below to the Native Plant Society. These trees will be planted in various locations around our community.

Native Tree Options


Plant one of the following trees and we will donate a

sapling to the Native Plant Society.

Why these trees?


Our goal is to focus on restoring native trees to the Texas Hill Country.  With the help of the Native Plant Society, we have chosen a number of shade trees that adapt well to our environment and will add beauty and value to our community and to your property. These trees are well-suited for our area because they are highly adaptable, do not require excessive amounts of water, and do not have destructive root systems.  Most importantly, they are all native to Texas!
