Mission is proud to be a Tree City USA since 2002. The Parks, Recreation + Tree Commission has programs throughout the year to support Mission’s tree canopy. You can get involved in several ways.
Celebration Tree Program
Life is full of occasions to celebrate – the lives of loved ones, weddings, anniversaries, retirements, etc. The City of Mission Parks, Recreation + Tree Commission’s Celebration Tree Program offers opportunities to plant a tree in one of our parks to recognize those moments.
A donation to the City of Mission covers the cost of the tree, the installation of the tree, and the maintenance of the tree for the duration of its life. Donors will receive a certificate and a map of the tree’s location within the park. Donations are accepted in the following amounts based on the size of tree requested:
- $550 – 2” caliper tree
- $750 – 3” caliper tree
- $2,000 – 5” caliper tree
An additional donation of $300 will purchase a 9”x5” cast bronze plaque to personalize the tree in the park. Space is limited to 150 characters.
A list of available species and parks are available by contacting Parks and Recreation at 913.722.8200.
