Several businesses and groups in southwest Missouri are teaming up to repopulate the region with trees. Greene county Parks Director Jodie Adams says more than half of the county’s tree population was wiped out after the January ice storms that barreled through the area. She says that loss was a decisive blow to her department, but she says a new program is aiming to help re-build the Ozark’s tree population. She says the "Reforest the Ozarks" program will offer residents solid, sturdy trees for replanting at a discounted price. The county will have white and red oak trees for sale this weekend. Adams says the trees, which usually cost $20, will cost just $10 per tree. She says they will be available Saturday at the Fairgrounds in north Springfield.
