City recognized for reforesting

Forest ReLeaf of Missouri recognized the city of Weldon Spring on March 5 for its exceptional efforts toward reforesting the community after the devastating effects of a tornado in May of 2013.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to accept this award but the true recognition deserves to go to the residents and businesses who helped, and especially everyone involved with Forest ReLeaf because without them none of this would have been possible,” said Mayor Donald D. Licklider.

Thousands of trees were destroyed in the city when an EF-3 tornado ripped through the area on May 31, 2013.

Since then, Weldon Spring has been coordinating the re-planting needs of its citizens and relying on Forest ReLeaf, Missouri’s only nonprofit community-assisted tree nursery, to provide more than 1,300 free trees and counting to help re-forest the community.
