Apply for Free and Low-Cost Trees

There is less than a month for Denverites to apply for free and reduced cost trees through The Park People’s Denver Digs Trees program. The entire city and county of Denver is eligible to apply for trees, and people may request as many trees as they have space for. Applications are available until Feb. 15, 2018. The tree distribution and sale is on Earth Day weekend, April 21 and 22, 2018.

All street trees are free. Yard trees are just $10 for those who live in the targeted Denver neighborhoods, which were selected based on their low tree coverage, and $35 for homeowners in the remaining areas of the city. Treeships for free yard trees also are available to those experiencing financial hardship.

To complete an application or get more information, text ‘TREE’ to 797979, visit www.TheParkPeople.org, or call 303-722-6262 for a paper application.

In addition to Denver Digs Trees, The Park People offers Community Forester classes for people interested in leading tree planting and care activities. For more information, visit www.TheParkPeople.org.

The Park People is dedicated to preserving, enhancing and advocating for Denver’s parks, recreation resources, open space, and urban forest. Through the Denver Digs Trees program, The Park People has added more than 50,000 trees to Denver’s skyline over the past 27 years.

Denver Digs Trees is generously supported by Xcel Energy, Denver Parks & Recreation, and other partners.
