The City of Great Bend maintains its own tree nursery located at the EXPO grounds, under the care of a certified arborist. The nursery has been in existence since 1995 and covers approximately seven acres.
The nursery consists of over 1500 trees, including a wide variety of species such as Burr Oak, Northern Red Oak, Pecan, Black Walnut, Sawtooth Oak, Sycamore, Ponderosa Pine, Cottonwood, Lacebark Elm, Locust, Pin Oak, and Bald Cypress.
Trees that are ready to be moved are transplanted throughout the public lands areas by our Parks Department staff. We transplant over 100 trees annually and are proud of our role in helping Great Bend become a member of Tree City USA.
