The City of Sedalia was recently awarded a TRIM grant through the Missouri Department of Conservation for a partial inventory of public street right-of-way trees. The contractor with Davey Resource Group started collecting data on the trees Friday and should be completed in three weeks.
There are two approximate boundaries included in this inventory. The first is Grand Avenue to Limit Avenue, 16th Street to Broadway Boulevard. The second is Limit Avenue west to the City limits. Data collected will include, but is not limited to, location, species, tree size, stems, condition, location rating, primary maintenance needs, secondary maintenance needs, risk assessment, risk rating, and observations.
Any questions should be directed to the Public Works Department, 200 S. Osage St. or 660-827-3000 ext. 158.
