Augusta Named Tree City for the 11th Year

Augusta has again received an award for its maintenance of its tree canopy.  There are only 100 tree cities in Missouri and Augusta is the smallest.  Tree cities pass a tree care ordinance and have a budget to plant, prune and remove street and park trees.  In 2008 and 2019 Augusta received a TRIM grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation to inventory trees on public property for planting and maintenance decisions.
