The City Of Kansas City, MO

To help with an emerald ash borer treatment project in Kansas City, MO, DRG went the extra mile to re-inventory the city’s ash trees and create an urban wood utilization plan, an urban forest master plan, and a priority planting plan.

Project Narrative:

The City of Kansas City, MO is very committed to maintaining and improving their public urban forest.  DRG has had the privilege of working with Kansas City consistently since 2016, on a variety of innovative projects including:

  • Ash Tree Re-Inventory
  • Urban Wood Utilization Plan
  • Urban Forest Master Plan
  • Priority Planting Plan

KC has been battling emerald ash borer (EAB) since 2014. In 2015, KC committed to treating all of their high-priority ash street trees to prevent mortality from EAB. DRG was hired to update their existing 2001 tree inventory data along with adding newly planted trees in new subdivisions. The inventory was uniquely challenging. The existing data was very old and had significant consistency and accuracy issues. Also, due to the timing of the inventory contract and the narrow window for EAB treatments we had to complete the project on a very tight deadline.

Upon completion of the inventory, the city was better able to contract out ash tree injections based on the size and condition of the public ash trees.

Since this initial ash tree re-inventory, DRG has also written an Urban Wood Utilization Plan (2017), developed an Urban Forest Master Plan (2018), and created a Priority Planting Plan in (2019).
