A Special Thanks...

Thanks to the Free Trees for Fall ReTree Planting program, an effort of the Nebraska Forest Service and the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, City of York’s Parks will be receiving 10 trees for the York Ballpark Complex to further our completion of the master tree plan and 10 trees for Beaver Creek Trail in efforts to be proactive in the fight against the Emerald Ash Borer as well as to continue to beautify our trail system. 

Despite providing a wide range of social, economic and environmental benefits, most Nebraska community forests have been in steady and sometimes dramatic decline. Many challenges contribute, including extreme weather, insects, disease and lack of diversity. The Emerald Ash borer is the latest major challenge added to the list.

 In an effort to stop this decline and increase community forest resilience, the Free Trees program grants up to 10 high quality trees for tree-related educational events and community celebrations promoting trees and fall planting.

In addition to simply planting more trees, the program goals include increasing appreciation and awareness of the value of community forests in Nebraska. Special emphasis is placed on species diversity and higher impact projects, especially street tree planting and projects in neighborhoods of highest need.

Free Trees for Fall ReTree Planting is supported by the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum’s Trees for Nebraska Towns Initiative funded by the Nebraska Environmental Trust, and by the Nebraska Forest Service’s Landscape Scale Restoration grant funded by the US Forest Service.

Earlier this year, the Complex received trees donated by the York Rotary Club, and recently purchased 10 additional trees to complete the master tree plan in just four years!
