Tree Work to Close Portions of North Beach Park Next Week

North Beach Park 001 (002)

The Branson Parks & Recreation Department will close portions of North Beach Park all next week, starting Monday, March 4 and lasting until Friday, March 8 to trim and properly care for the trees. The walking path will remain open for the entirety of the project.

This project is paid for by a Tree Resource, Improvement and Maintenance (TRIM) Grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation.  The TRIM Grant is a cost-share program administered by Missouri Department of Conservation in cooperation with the Missouri Community Forestry Council and the U.S. Forest Service. The goal of the program is to provide financial assistance for community forestry benefits through the proper management and care of trees in Missouri communities. 

In 2017, the Parks and Recreation Department partnered with the Branson Tree Board to complete a tree inventory.  This inventory was designed to assess the need for both care and maintenance of park trees throughout Branson.  In addition, it provided a roadmap for a long term tree management plan. 

While parts of the new plan have already been executed, this TRIM Grant will assist in beginning the first larger scale portion of the project. The financial assistance from the TRIM grant will allow the Parks Department to work with Hansen’s Tree Service to provide substantial maintenance and pruning on trees in North Beach Park.  By doing this routine maintenance, these large trees throughout the park can continue to be enjoyed by guests for years to come.  

For questions or further information, contact City of Branson Director of Parks & Recreation, Cindy Shook at (417)335-2368.
