If you feel that your yard could use a little “sprucing up,” or if you are missing the shade that you once had before the Taylorville tornado came through, then the Taylorville Tree Recovery Team has something for you. Applications are now open for you to apply to receive a new tree that may have been lost in the December 1st storm. Barb Grabner-Kerns, a volunteer with the Taylorville Tree Recovery Team says that the trees are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and that you have to apply by September 1st.
The application is 4 pages long. In order to be eligible homeowners have to have been impacted by the December tornado, be in a home that is occupied and have construction completed and the lots cleaned up. Grabner-Kerns says you can pick whichever tree you want as long as it’s within reason.
