The City of Brentwood received a $22,837 grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) Tree Resource Improvement and Maintenance (TRIM) program. Brentwood was one of 38 communities to receive the grant.
“Trees make life better for our cities and towns every day,” said MDC Community Forestry Program Supervisor Russell Hinnah. The City of Brentwood will use the grant funding to plant new trees to replace those that had to be removed as part of Brentwood’s Emerald Ash Borer management program. The TRIM grant will allow Brentwood staff to replenish the City’s urban forest.
