Liberty, MO (April 24, 2007)- TreeLiberty is dedicated to improving Liberty’s treescape by through the removal of dangerous trees and planting of new trees. One of their focus areas is the William Jewell Historic District, which was severely damaged by a tornado in 2003. With every planting, TreeLiberty makes a commitment to maintain the trees for at least three years.
They work closely with the City of Liberty and Missouri Department of Conservation. Together, they are increasing the variety of trees in this district and making accommodations for overhead utility lines. In 2005, TreeLiberty conducted a sample Street Tree Inventory, identifying 741 street trees of 47 different species. In the sample area, 60 percent of the trees were rated in good condition. In 2006, TreeLiberty was recognized with the Missouri Arbor Award for Excellence in Organization for their partnership with the city’s Blueprint for Liberty initiative, which encourages the planting of street trees.
