The City has launched the Arvada Tree Campaign, celebrating the role trees play in supporting our vibrant community and ecosystems, as well as raising awareness of the impacts of Emerald Ash Borer on trees in Arvada. 

Trees are a major part of the City’s infrastructure, providing beauty, while supporting vital ecosystems. More than 14,000 trees on City of Arvada property have been inventoried by the City's Forestry Team. This number represents all the trees planted in Parks, Athletic Fields, City Facilities, roadways, and many of the trees located in our Open Space Areas.
