Free Trees from Denver Digs Trees

without comments

Hey Denver peeps! Here is a cool thing!

Denver Digs Trees is gearing up for spring street tree season (street trees are planted between the sidewalk and the street). You can buy a tree for only $25 or get one free if you live in one of the “target” neighborhoods (list here) and your yard passes inspection (which really means you have enough space).

We live in a target neighborhood and got a free street tree two years ago. Our little “summer splendor tatarian maple” (no longer available but there is a similar tree this year) is growing up and looks fantastic in our yard, which until then had zero trees. I don’t see anything about this on the current application, but we had to take a tree care class before getting our tree. It was just a few hours on a weekend morning, and it was interesting and fun.

This is what our tree looked like last summer, a little over a year after being planted. Not bad, right?

The deadline for applications is February 15 and trees will be distributed on Saturday, April 16. (You don’t need a truck or anything — we brought our little guy home in (on?) the Subaru.) Get ‘em while you can, because this is a fabulous thing for Denver!
