T.R.I.M. Grant Awarded to Shrewsbury!
The City of Shrewsbury was recently awarded a T.R.I.M (Tree Resource Imporvement Maintenance) Grant in the amount of $10,000. This is a program by the MIssouri Deparmtent of Conservation in cooperation with the Missouri Community Forest Council and the USDA Forest Service. Shrewsbury would like to greatly thank the Missouri Department of Conservation for awarding us this grant. The grant money will be used to do a tree inventory of Wehner and Brinkop Parks. This inventory will allow Shrewsbury to create and support a long term and sustainable urban forest management program. Davey Resource Group has been hired to perform the duties of this work. Davey will be out and about in the parks collecting datain the next few months. Additionally after the tree inventory is completed, there will be an interactvie component for public engagment to learn aboutthe park trees and understand tree benifits better int he parks and their own yards.
