Trees Across Arvada

Information for the 2014/2015 Trees Across Arvada Program will be available in the fall. Please check back.

 

Each year Trees Across Arvada offers Arvada residents the opportunity to purchase low cost shade trees.  “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.  The trees, mostly low to moderately low water demand varieties, are 3-12 feet tall and up to 1.50 inches in diameter. First year survival rates average 90-95%; survival rate after four years averages 75%. Trees are not guaranteed due to low purchase price. Tree descriptions, tree chart and order form can be accessed through the provided links.

Trees help us by:

  •     cooling our neighborhoods in summer with shade and transpiration
  •     cleaning the air of pollution by catching particulates on their leaves
  •     turning carbon dioxide into oxygen for us to breathe
  •     slowing down storm drainage flooding
  •     reducing water consumption of plants protected by their shade
  •     lowering summer utilities by shading
  •     adding value to our property
  •     planting trees improves our quality of life

 

Dates to Remember:

  • Tree orders and full payment are due by December 31, 2013
  • Orders cannot be cancelled after January 1, 2014
  • Tree distribution is mid-April, 2014 at Majestic View Nature Center, 70th & Garrison
