Callery Pear Buy-Back in St. Louis

April 18 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Cut down an invasive Callery pear tree, get an ecologically beneficial tree in exchange! When you register, select only one tree. We are excited by the enthusiastic response to this event and want to make the free tree offer accessible to as many people as possible. To spread awareness about how the invasive Callery (Bradford) pear tree (Pyrus calleryana) causes harm to economics and environment, the Missouri Invasive Plant Council and Forest ReLeaf of Missouri are hosting their third Callery Pear Buy-back in St. Louis. Participants are invited to cut down their Callery pear tree and submit a photo of it to the Missouri Invasive Plant Council. Trees are sourced from Forest ReLeaf and Forrest Keeling nursery.
  • The offer is limited to one native tree per household with photo proof of at least one cut-down Callery pear. When you register, select only one tree.
  • At checkout, you will be given a link to a separate web page to submit your photo.
Participants are invited to pick up their trees from Forest ReLeaf from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Learn more about the Buy-back and the problems with Callery pear trees here. For further questions, please contact Billy Haag at Forest ReLeaf of Missouri via email at billy@moreleaf.org or phone at (314) 533-5323.
