Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Holidays! We’re all counting down to a new year, so from the St. Regis Park Tree Board, here, with pride, is our own special 3-2-1 countdown!
3—The number of years we have been protecting and augmenting our tree canopy!
2—The number of years we have been designated a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation! (Year three application has been submitted.)
1—One proud tree board, one forward-thinking mayor and council, and one engaged and fabulous citizenry! Thank you all.
In the first three years of our existence, we have planted 222 trees! We have reimbursed for the maintenance of trees for over 60 households, and we have contributed to the cost of the removal of 7-10 dead trees. Per capita, we spend more money on trees than any other Tree City in Kentucky, and possibly, in the whole country! These are real and tangible accomplishments that other cities are emulating. We have consulted with two-three very fine small cities in our area who want to use us as their model for growth and maintenance of tree canopies.
And so, for 2018, it’s your turn. Once again, we are posting the information on how to apply for a new tree for Spring, 2018, and how to apply for maintenance reimbursement. We hope you will take advantage and make 2018 another tree-mendous one for St. Regis Park!
