Trees Across Arvada is a program of the Colorado Tree Coalition, a nonprofit statewide organization dedicated to preserving, renewing and enhancing Colorado’s community forests. Every year, Trees Across Arvada offers Arvada residents the opportunity to purchase low cost shade trees. The trees, mostly low to moderately low water demand varieties, are 3-12 feet tall and up to 1.50 inches in diameter. Tree cost ranges from $30 to $80. Balled and burlaped, bare root and air-pruned container trees are available. First year survival rates average 90-95%; survival rate after four years averages 75%.
