Get Involved

The City of Gladstone has contracted the services of an arborist to manage the care of this beloved landmark. However, the tree’s location within a residential suburb means that there is little room for public access or interpretation of the resource. Furthermore, road improvements and expansions over the years have meant that pavement has increasingly inched toward the tree, limiting the amount of rain water that reaches the roots and subjecting the tree to contaminated road runoff. If community members and city officials could establish a partnership, it might be possible to purchase some of the property around and near the tree. By expanding the open space around the Pow-Wow Tree, it would be better protected from intrusion and the community would have better access to this local treasure.
