As part of its ongoing dedication to providing a positive environmental impact to the local community, the Branson Parks & Recreation Department recently teamed up with Liberty Utilities, the Arbor Day Foundation and local TreeKeeper volunteers to plant 25 new trees in Branson’s Eiserman Park.

On December 10, 2020, volunteers from Liberty Utilities and our local TreeKeeper program planted nine different varieties of trees in Eiserman Park, which can now be seen in the park at 201 Compton Drive. Our TreeKeeper volunteers work year-round to maintain and take care of trees in city parks and play a vital role in ongoing reforestation efforts.

“We are grateful for our wonderful TreeKeeper volunteers who have been a great help all year,” said Branson Parks & Recreation Landscape Specialist, Amy Jackson. “We are initiating reforestation efforts in some of our parks to establish a tree canopy that has been lost in some areas for a variety of reasons. A diverse and healthy community forest depends on all of us to follow a commitment to high-quality tree stock, proper planting techniques and a routine maintenance plan,” Jackson said.

The trees are part of the Arbor Day Foundation’s Energy-Saving Trees program that provided the trees to help maximize positive environmental impact. The varieties of trees that were planted include Persimmon, Sycamore, Red, Bur, and Scarlet Oaks, Dwarf Chinkapin, Elm, Silver Linden and Bald Cypress. To become a TreeKeeper volunteer visit the TreeKeepers section on the Branson Parks & Recreation’s website.   

This project is a priority set under the “Parks Open space and Recreation” section of the community-created Branson Community 2030 Plan that serves as a guideline for the City and reflects the community's values and desires.
