Tree and Plant Recommendations


Every year, the Parks & Urban Forestry Board along with the City Council, approves a recommended tree and shrub list for Derby residents. These trees and shrubs are known to do well in the area, and are available at local greenhouses. For further information contact Shana Sneath by email or 316-788-0301.
