About the Program

More than 600 trees were planted last year in Arlington as part of the NFL Environmental Program for Super Bowl XLV. Thursday’s program represents the "passing of the torch" from Arlington to Indianapolis, IN. This planting will be the last one for Super Bowl XLV and will coincide with the first tree planting in Indianapolis for Super Bowl XLVI. The tree to be planted in Indianapolis on April 21 is provided by the City of Arlington as a gift to the people of Indianapolis.

Super Bowl Super Grow XLV is a partnership between the City of Arlington, the National Football League’s Environmental Program, the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee, the Texas Forest Service and the Texas Trees Foundation. Super Grow is part of a NFL tradition of organizing local activities to help offset the environmental impacts of the Super Bowl.
