ORIGINAL EVENT POSTING

Cut down an invasive Callery pear tree during Earth Week!

You can get an ecologically beneficial tree in exchange.

When you register, select only one time slot and 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 Task Force, Forest ReLeaf, and BiodiverseCity St. Louis are hosting their second 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 Task Force. Forest ReLeaf and Forrest Keeling Nursery are donating the native/noninvasive trees to each participant to replace the invasive Callery pears.

  • The offer is limited to one native tree per photo proof of one cut-down Callery pear. When you register, select only one time slot and 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 7 p.m. To limit person-to-person contact, you must reserve a time slot and make your tree selection here on Eventbrite. ALL BUY-BACK SLOTS ARE NOW RESERVED.

Learn more about the Buy-back and the problems with Callery pear trees here. For further questions, please email info@moinvasives.org.
