JOPLIN, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Conservation helps an area community keep its Tree City USA status.
The M.D.C. has awarded the City of Joplin a grant worth more than $25,000 through its Community Forestry Cost-Share program. That will allow the city to update and assess the health of the tree inventory within city parks.
