Spring Street Trees

Each spring, Denver Digs Trees offers affordable street trees.  Street trees are planted close to the curbside in the "tree lawn" between the sidewalk and curb or, in areas with no tree lawn, 10 feet into the yard from the curb. Street trees beautify our neighborhoods and improve our quality of life, including traffic calming, decreased crime, improved air and water quality, and enhanced property values.

Spring Street Tree applications are available now!  The application deadline is February 15, and availability is limited.  So apply now!

This spring ONLY, all Denver residents have a special opportunity to get free trees:

1)  Free street trees for all Denver residents through Denver Digs Trees' Spring Street Tree program.

2)  Free trees for all Denver residents for the west sides of homes (front, side, back yards, or street-side) through the Mile High Million's Trees for Energy Savings program.

Fall Shade Trees for Your Yard

A strategically planted shade tree can help you save money and fight global warming! The shade of a large tree can reduce the amount of energy needed to cool your home, which results in lower energy bills and less carbon released into the atmosphere. These trees also enhance property values, buffer noise, and provide shelter for birds and other wildlife.

Fall Yard Tree applications will be available in late-July. Please visit our website again then or sign up to be notified when applications are available.

 

After you've planted your tree(s), we encourage you to register your tree with the City's Mile High Million tree campaign. Click here and make your tree count!
