TRIM Grant Program

The Centralia Park Department recently completed a tree removal and replacement project with the assistance of a TRIM Grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation. A total of 19 Ash Trees were removed from the City Square and the south end of the Recreation Park. Problem trees were identified by the Park Department with the assistance of the Department of Conservation. In addition to removing problem Ash trees the Park Department also planted 12 trees of various species in the two locations.

A long term plan of removal and replacement has been developed for both areas of the Parks. A landscape architect completed a tree inventory as well as a detailed plan located all existing trees. The plan identified trees for removal and the location of replacement trees.
