Edible Arbor Trail

We are always happy to welcome business and organization sponsors to contribute to the Edible Arbor Trail. This award-winning trail features several groves of hardy trees and shrubs that produce edible fruits and nuts along Missouri City’s Oyster Creek Trail. For a full map of the trail, check out the Edible Arbor Trail Seasonal Picking Guide (PDF).

There are several sponsorship options to consider and several public relations opportunities available. If your business or organization would like to contribute towards this project or sponsor an entire grove please Email City Forester.

Missouri City Tree Challenge

The Nichols Family of Quail Valley has generously offered to match their neighbor’s tree donations, for up to 50 trees at Missouri City Parks. Starting in the October 2017 planting season, trees will be planted at 7 city parks. Trees will average 6’-12’ tall at the time of planting. Our City Forester will select the appropriate species and location for each tree sponsored. For more information, or to participate in the tree challenge, please download a Missouri City Tree Challenge Application (PDF).

We are seeking individual sponsors to contribute towards the Missouri City Tree Challenge. If you are interested in sponsoring this project, please Email City Forester.
