Mile High Tree Champions

The Park People is home to an exciting initiative that encourages businesses of all sizes to become Mile High Tree ChampionsMile High Tree Champions are companies that invest a small amount of funding and some good old sweat equity to help enhance Denver's urban tree canopy and improve Denver's green infrastructure.

For participating companies, The Park People will plan an action-packed half-day tree planting experience for your organization. Crew sizes can range from 15-50 volunteers, and the planting event can be scheduled on weekdays or weekends.

Your Mile High Tree Champions investment not only benefits the city's green efforts, but also is a fun and inspiring experience.  Participants in the Mile High Tree Champions Program gain a sense of  accomplishment, knowing they have had a direct impact on their local environment and feeling empowered by a unique day of team building.

Mile High Tree Champions will be featured prominently on our website and social media. Sponsors are promoted in Park People outreach and media materials seen by thousands of Denver residents.  Champion companies will also be recognized in our newsletter, The Park Bench, which goes to volunteers and donors.  Additionally, Mile High Tree Champions can highlight their participation via their own outreach avenues and receive recognition as a company that cares about the environment and the city's urban tree canopy.

Intangible Benefits
