Park and Tree Board

The purpose of the Park and Tree Board is to improve the quality of life and community livability throughout Maize by providing healthy recreational opportunities for people of all ages through the use of parks.  The Board works to promote planting trees appropriate for the Kansas landscape and climate and to educate citizens on proper tree care.  The Board also works with the City Council and staff to develop, maintain, and implement a Park System Master Plan appropriate for the City of Maize.

Tree Reimbursement Program

Tree Reimbursement Program

Did you know that you can receive up to a $100 reimbursement for trees planted on your property during 2015?  The City of Maize Park and Tree Board has implemented a program to encourage citizens to plant good quality trees appropriate for the area.

Why would we want trees in the city?  Trees are beautiful and they improve the quality of life for people in many ways.  Trees help clean the air of harmful pollutants, trees help stabilize the land, trees help cool the hot summer air in urban areas, tree-lined streets discourage speeding traffic, trees provide a home for wildlife, trees are pleasant to look at and give people a sense of well-being. Well cared for trees in parks and along city streets make it apparent that people care about their town.

Maize Residents have an excellent opportunity to participate in our Tree Reimbursement Program.  Residents are eligible to receive a refund of 20% of the purchase price of trees planted, up to $100 per household.  View a list of preferred trees for South Central Kansas.
