TRIM Grant Awarded from Missouri Department of Conservation
The City of Manchester has received and is completing the Tree Resource Improvement and Maintenance (TRIM) Grant Project this spring. Funding was provided to the City by the Missouri Department of Conservation to remove ash trees in City owned parks. An inventory and management plan was completed for the City parks last year through the Trim Grant Program. Thank you MDC!
