Branson’s Parks & Recreation Department hosts a yearly Arbor Day Celebration as a designated Tree City USA since 1995. The 2021 celebration is in partnership with the State of Missouri Parks & Recreation Association’s “Show Me Your Roots” campaign which celebrates Arbor Day and Missouri’s Bicentennial and helps to plant 200 Missouri native tree species across the State in the month of April.
As part of the Arbor Day celebration, the City of Branson Mayor will declare April 2, 2021, as Arbor Day in Branson. City of Branson Landscape Specialist, Amy Jackson, along with local TreeKeepers, a volunteer group that helps reforestation efforts in city parks, will be planting and mulching a white oak tree at Alexander Park. The event will be streamed live on the Branson Parks Facebook page @Branson.RecPlex. All area residents, community members, and businesses are invited to participate in the Arbor Day celebrations.
