Lafayette Park is home to over 800 trees representing 90+ species. These trees are an invaluable asset not only to the park’s human visitors, but also the wide range of wildlife that live in, or migrate through, Lafayette Park. The City of St. Louis Forestry Division is responsible for maintenance of trees in Lafayette Park, as well as over 120,000 additional park and street trees across St. Louis city. In 2021 the Lafayette Park Conservancy hired private consulting arborists to complete an inventory analysis and management plan in order to coordinate with the City to supplement the work of the Forestry Division.
The Lafayette Park Conservancy raises funds for supplementary tree maintenance. In 2023, thanks to a Community Forestry Cost-Share grant from the Missouri Department of Conservation, the Conservancy will invest over $30,000 in tree work.
