KCK Tree Board
As part of being designated a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation since 2008, Kansas City, Kansas has a tree board which addresses urban forestry issues. This tree board is headed by staff at the Parks & Recreation Department.
The Tree Board encourages the planting of trees because there are many benefits trees provide to our community. It is important that you choose the right tree for your location.
Prior to planting trees, make sure that you contact Kansas One-Call and local utility companies before any digging. For tree planting and tree care see the following sites:
KCK Ordinances for Trees:
If you are an urban forestry advocate, the Tree Board of KCK is participating with the K.C. regional campaign of the Heartland Tree Alliance to raise funds for tree planting in area parks. If you are interested in assisting, visit the Briding The Gap website.
