The City of Sedalia was awarded a TRIM grant through the Missouri Department of Conservation for completion of a partial tree inventory in city parks and along street right-of-ways on public property.

Davey Resource Group, the City of Sedalia’s contractor started collection of tree data in city parks on February 21, 2017 and will soon be moving to work along street right-of-ways.

The entire tree inventory data collection should be completed in three weeks. 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.

Residents may see Davey Resource Group workers in the following area as they collect data for the inventory. The approximate boundary included in this inventory is Limit Avenue to New York Avenue, 16th Street to 20th Street.

Davey Resource Group workers will not be inventorying trees on private property and will not need to make contact with residents. However, should you be concerned about someone in your area, Davey Resource Group workers will be wearing high-vis safety vests and will have Davey identification cards.

Any questions should be directed to the Public Works Department, 200 S. Osage, Sedalia, MO 65301, or (660) 827-3000 extension 1166.
