planning services: keep shelby beautiful (ksb)


Congratulations to the winners of the Keep Shelby Beautiful “2013 Your Favorite Tree Contest”: 1st place is “Old Oak” by Linda Price; 2nd place is “River Birch” by Diane Carr; 3rd place is “Big Limb” by Ana Bodillo; 4th place is “The Climber” by Guy Scoggin; and 5th place is “The Survivor” by Beau Scharer. The winners each received a gift certificate to a local garden center, a camellia tree donated by Clines’ Nursery, and a trophy for 1st place and framed certificates for 2nd – 5th place.  

This was the first year KSB used social media to promote and handle the voting for the annual tree contest. The public was invited to vote for their favorite contest entry on the City of Shelby’s Facebook page over a 2 week period. Over 250 votes were cast.

Keep Shelby Beautiful (KSB) holds the annual tree contest as a way to promote trees as a resource for beautification and to celebrate the City’s tree heritage. KSB recognizes that trees contribute to the attractiveness and livability of the City. Trees enhance the community’s appearance that contributes to a positive economic development atmosphere.
