The Branching Out Program
In an effort to make Independence a greener City to live, play, and grow, the Independence Parks & Recreation Department began the "Branching Out" Program in the Spring of 2008. The original goal of the program was to replenish the aging population of trees within the City Parks. Thus far, all of the trees planted have been planted on site (placed in their permanent location). PLanting the trees on site saves on the future costs of moving trees and possible damage to the trees during transplantation.
