About Forest ReLeaf of Missouri
Forest ReLeaf of Missouri operates the only nonprofit community-assisted tree nursery in the region. Since our
inception in 1993, more than 175,000 trees have been planted throughout Missouri and Illinois - projects have
increased tree canopy in low-income areas, assisted with reforestation after major weather disasters or in response to
in response to invasive pests, and to promote peace and healing in our communities.
Impact is measured in multiple ways: the number of free trees grown and given away each year, how healthy planted
trees are a few years later, and the stories heard from tree recipients.
From seed to bare root seedlings, our staff and volunteers are growing more than 25,000 trees in our 6-acre nursery,
CommuniTree Gardens, located in Creve Coeur Park in Maryland Heights, Missouri. Each spring and fall, thousands
of these trees are given away for free to groups for public and nonprofit planting projects throughout Missouri and
surrounding regions. Education and outreach is another key element of our mission. Each year, Forest ReLeaf offers
a number of community outreach opportunities including the annual free, 6-week TreeKeepers Class, educational
classes and public access to St Louis- area Urban Tree Canopy data and reports.

Avoiding Tree & Utility Conflicts
Determining where to plant a tree is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Many factors should be considered
prior to planting. When planning what type of tree to plant, remember to look up and down to dertermine where the
tree will be located in relation to overhead and underground utility lines.
Overhead lines can be electric, telephone, or cable. Underground lines include these plus water, sewer, and natural
gas. The location of these lines should have a direct impact on your tree and planting site selection. The ultimate
mature height of a tree to be planted must be within the available overhead growing space. Just as important, the
soil area must be large enough to accommodate the particular rooting habits and ultimate trunk diameter of the tree.
Proper tree and site selection will provide trouble-free beauty and pleasure for years to come.
Overhead utility lines are the easiest to see and probably the ones we take most for granted. Although these lines
look harmless enough, they can be extremely dangerous. Planting tall-growing trees under and near these lines
will require your utility to prune them to maintain safe clearance from the wires. This pruning may result in the tree
having an unnatural appearance. Periodic pruning can also shorten the lifespan of the tree. Trees which must be
pruned away from power lines are under greater stress and more susceptible to insects and diseases. Small, immature
trees planted today can become problem trees in the future. Tall-growing trees near overhead lines can cause service
interruptions when trees contact wires and are potential public safety hazards.
Trees are much more than just what you see overhead. Many times the root area is larger than than the branch
spread above ground. Tree roots and underground lines often coexist without problem. However, trees planted near
underground lines could have their roots damaged if the lines need to be dug up for repairs. Choose the tree with the
right type of root system for the location you have chosen.
The biggest danger to underground lines occurs during planting. Before you plant, make sure that you are aware of
the location of any underground utilities. To be certain that you do not dig into any lines and risk serious injury or a
costly service interruption, call your utility company first. Never assume that the lines are buried deeper than you plan
to dig.
