The Taylorville Tree Recovery Team is continuing to raise funds to help homeowners who might still be looking for trees after the December 2018 tornado. Barb Grabner-Kerns and Kellie Hamell with the Taylorville Tree Board are leading the charge to help plant trees. These trees will be on a first come first-served basis. Barb says the Taylorville Tree Board is continuing this year because of how successful last year’s organization and generous donations from last year.


Kerns says that you can pick up an application for replacing trees either online or at Davis Memorial Church in Taylorville at 1500 West Franklin. You can fill out an application until April 1st.


Kerns says there are ways you can help with donations as well.


Kerns is hoping to have the next round of trees planted in connection with Arbor day on April 24th. For more information on the Taylorville Tree Recovery Team, contact Barb Grabner-Kerns at barb4trees@ctifiber.com.
