Trees Forever to present Thursday, December 1


Trees Forever will be in West Liberty on Thursday, Dec. 1, at 5:30 p.m. giving a workshop as part of our Tree-Mendous program, a partnership effort with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the United States Forest Service. We would like to extend an invitation for you to join us.

No registration is required and there is no cost to attend. The event will take place at the West Liberty Community Center and will be presented by Peter Lundgren, Southeast Iowa Field Coordinator for Tress Forever.

The workshop will touch on many issues surrounding trees, including planting, care and maintenance, species selection, ordinances/tree lists and inventories.

We will take a look at something referred to as the “tree diversity funnel," benefits of trees, effects of landscaping on safety and retail business and some interesting ideas around cost-effective tree procurement.

It will also act as an opportunity to learn about all of the grant opportunities that are available to communities and non-profit organizations through Trees Forever and our many partner organizations.

Several of these grants open throughout the year, and we want to encourage more people to apply and take advantage of the funding. More information can be found on our website at

Please consider joining us for this exciting workshop and invite others who may be interested.

Attendance is encouraged for anyone who has influence over community trees, a passion for trees or just wants to learn more.
