Tree Board

The Tree Committee of Wentzville, Missouri is a volunteer nonprofit committee of the City’s Parks and Recreation Board. The Tree Committee engages the community of Wentzville in protecting its parks and green spaces by inspiring them to plant, nurture and celebrate trees. News, information and education is disseminated to the community by the committee to demonstrate the value trees can provide now and for generations to come.


Wentzville has been recognized for five consecutive years as a “Tree City USA” recipient. In the fall of 2014, Wentzville’s Parks and Recreation Board created a Tree Board, which reviews the City’s tree and landscape ordinances. The Tree Board currently consists of seven members: Juergen Barthelme, Maureen Murray-Barthelme, Deb Keller, Peggy Meyer, Danny Moncheski, Scott Skopec and J.J. Suftko.

Staff positions that are included on the Tree Board are Park Superintendent and Horticulturist. If you are interested in serving on the Tree Board, please contact Wentzville Parks and Recreation at (636) 332-9236.
