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.

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.
The Fall Shade Tree Distribution has passed, but you may sign up to be notified when applications are available in the future.
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!
