Reporting Downed Branches on Trails and Other City Property

Please DO NOT drop tree limbs from private property onto City property. Doing so is considered illegal dumping.  As you can imagine, the City team's first priority is safety. Currently, our streets team is actively addressing downed limbs on roadways, and our parks team is actively addressing downed limbs on trails and placing barricades for trail safety. To report downed tree limbs on trails, sidewalks, roadways and open space, please submit a request via Ask Arvada. Once there,

1) type "trails" in the description window
2) select trails and open space issue
3) drop a pin on the location where a tree is down

Branches on Trails

If you see downed branches on trails, please report them on Ask Arvada (instructions above). We ask that residents use caution on trails. Some sections along western Ralston Creek Trail are coned off due to downed limbs. We are working to address their removal, but this will take time.Thank you for your patience.

Thank you for your patience as we work to ensure safety and meet the needs of the communtiy.
