The City of Branson Tree Board invites the public to participate in ArborFest. ArborFest is held annually in October to promote this time of the year as the optimum time to plant trees and shrubs. Autumn is a less stressful time of year to plant or transplant vegetation, as the air temperatures are cooler and less water is lost through the plants leaves. It also provides time for the root systems to develop before spring and the hot summer months.

ArborFest presents workshops, lectures, and classes designed to educate the public about topics such as mulching, proper planting, trimming, and watering trees and shrubs.
