Callery Pear Buy Back Event

With their white blooms, Callery pear trees are most obvious this time of year. This highly invasive tree threatens native wildlife and causes difficulties for private and public landowners. Homeowners are invited to cut down their Callery pears and receive a free, non-invasive tree at these events in the Kansas City & Northeast Kansas areas.

Participants will receive potted replacement trees, donated by Evergy, and sourced through Forrest Keeling Nursery, in 3-gallon containers that stand between 4 and 5 feet tall.

To be eligible for a free replacement tree, participants must first register, and then email a photo of themselves next to their cut-down Callery pear to [email protected].
