Trees For Raytown

Reforest and Beautify

"Trees for Raytown" is a program developed in 1987 by the Raytown Parks & Recreation Department to help reforest and beautify the Raytown Community. The trees will be of good quality and offered at a competitive price. In an effort to keep the cost of this program low, no survival guarantee is available. However, with proper care and maintenance these trees should transplant and grow easily for you.

Spring orders will be taken from March 15 through April 15 and Fall orders will be taken from August 15 through September 14. Delivery and/or planting will be within 2-3 weeks after closing date. All trees this spring are $42 each, except the Dogwoods and Red Oaks which are $60. If you would like to have your tree planted there is a $25 additional charge for each tree planted and you must live within the Raytown city limits. We cannot plant within 4' of an existing structure or stump. Planting services are available to individual residences not homeowner associations or commercial properties.

We are not responsible for any damage or expenses to underground utilities or irrigation systems. You should have the site inspected for buried utilities before planting is done. This can be done by calling Missouri Dig Rite at 1-800-344-7483. The is no charge for this service.

We have several varieties to choose from:

Ornamental Trees - Flowering Crabapple (pink, red or white), Fruitless Crabapple, Flowering Dogwood-white or pink(spring only) and Red Bud.

Shade Trees - Bald Cypress, Red Maple, Pin Oak and Red Oak.

Orders must be made at the Raytown Parks & Recreation office, 5912 Lane (Colman Park) Monday-Friday, 8 am to 5 p.m.
