The Beautification Department would like to remind Liberal residents that the Spring Tree Match and the Tree Rebate programs are underway.
Applications for the Tree Match Program are available at the Recreation Center at 1109 W. Seventh St. This program is open to any resident, business or non-profit organization – such as churches, who reside in city limits. Citizens are allowed to order between one to four trees per residence. The spring order trees will be coming into Liberal around April 11. Pickup will be at the parks maintenance building at 724 Armory Rd. on April 15 and 16. Time of pickup will be as follows:
o Friday, April 15 – 3 to 6 p.m.
o Saturday, April 16 – 9 a.m. to noon
These are the ONLY times trees can be picked up. If the delivery date changes, citizens will be notified personally.
The trees offered this spring will be Globe Willow (5 gal.), Shademaster Honey Locust, Oklahoma Whitebud, Lacebark Elm, Wichita Blue Juniper, Aristocrat Pear, Autumn Fantasy Maple, Oklahoma Redbud and Prairifire Crabapple. Trees will be of seven gallon container size, except where noted. Due to price increase, trees will be $25 each.
We will only be doing a spring tree order this year.
The Tree Rebate Program will also be for residents only. The rebate will be 50 percent of the cost of the tree up to $75, and must have at least one and one-half inch diameter trunk or 10 a gallon container tree.
Coupons will be picked up at participating dealers where the tree was purchased. The limit is one per household.
