Past Programs

Trees for Today:
One of KPB's better known programs. When thousands of American Elms were killed by Dutch Elm disease in the 1970's, City officials sought the help of a non-profit group to help replace lost shade-cover. For over 35 years, KPB distributed about 9,000 trees through advertisements in the local newspaper. Individuals were able to purchase the trees for $35 with the organization absorbing the rest of the cost. Local Boy Scouts often volunteered to help those who needed assistance planting the trees.

Arbor Day Tree Giveaway:
Another program that was popular with many of the community's youngsters was the Arbor Day Tree Giveaway to area third graders for several years. The tiny evergreen seedlings were given through School Districts 60 and 70 in cooperation with the Pueblo County Extension service. About 10,000 of the seedlings were given and many now stand rooftop tall.

An essay contest about trees was started at one Pueblo school in connection with the seedling program. The contest continued to invovle all third graders in District 60 and 70.
