Plant a tree in your yard to add color, shade, or edibles to your landscape!  The Park People's annual Earth Day Yard Tree Sale offers great deals and supports the hundreds of low-cost trees we distribute to Denver residents each year. Trees are available in limited quantities and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Earth Day Tree Sale will be held in conjunction with the Denver Digs Trees distributions:

ON  Saturday, April 18th
FROM  9am-12pm

Group 1 Trees listed below will be available from 9am-12pm.  Group 2 Trees (those left over from the Denver Digs distribution) will be sold 10:30am-12pm.

Yard trees must be planted on private property (not in the public right-of-way).  Planting along the street requires a site inspection and issuance of a City permit in advance.

GROUP 1 Tree Species (limited quantities; sold on a first-come, first-served basis):
Honeycrisp Apple - $45
Malus x domestica 'Honeycrisp'
In mid-September, the Honeycrisp Apple produces medium-sized fruits with coarse, cream-colored flesh, exceptionally crisp, juicy texture, and sweet/tart flavor.  The apples are excellent for fresh eating and for cooking and store up to six months.  The tree matures to 15-20 feet tall and is self-sterile, requiring a cross-pollinator (another apple or crabapple variety).

Montmorency Cherry - $65
Prunus cerasus 'Montmorency'
This vigorous cherry produces excellent fruit for pies, jams, and preserves.  Its medium sized fruit has firm, yellow flesh with rich, tart, tangy flavor.  The Montmorency Cherry is a self- fertile semi-dwarf tree that reaches 15-20 feet tall and 12-15 feet wide.  The fruit is very crack resistant and ripens in mid-summer.
Reliance Peach - $65
Prunus persica 'Reliance'
The Reliance Peach reaches 12-20 feet tall and features a red blush over yellow skin with firm, yellow flesh beneath. This productive, hardy, self-pollinating peach ripens in July and is prized for its beautiful late blooms that ensure a bountiful harvest. Reliance holds up well during processing, making it a favorite for canning.
Stanley Plum - $65
Prunus domestica 'Stanley'
This popular European plum is an excellent producer, yielding large bluish-purple, tender fruits with sweet, juicy, yellow flesh.  Fruits ripen in early September and are good for fresh eating, drying, and canning.  This hardy, vigorous tree matures at 15-20 feet tall with a 15-30 foot spread.  It is self-fertile, though yields more heavily when pollinated by another plum variety.
Cleveland Select Flowering Pear - $65
Pyrus calleryana 'Cleveland Select'  (ornamental fruit)
Maturing to 30 feet tall and 15 feet wide, this pyramidal pear tree's compact form fits nicely into narrow spaces. It has profuse white flowers in the spring and glossy green foliage that turns reddish purple in the fall. The Cleveland Select also has good fireblight resistance, is less susceptible to early freezes than other pear varieties, and features fruit only a half-inch wide.
Robinson Crabapple - $45
Malus 'Robinson'
This beautiful, rapid growing ornamental tree reaches 25 feet tall with an upright spreading form of a similar width. The Robinson is known to be very disease resistant, and its pink blossoms are followed by a small (3/8”) red fruit that attracts birds.
